CariboobassinetSince Marissa is concerned about the environment they are suggesting that she get a eco-friendly Cariboo Bassinet, with formaldehyde free, baby safe bedding from BabyStar.Cariboo Bassinets are spacious and larger than average bassinets, sothey are able to be used longer. They also look great in the mastersuite. This will buy Marissa some extra time to shop for a crib andplan her nursery decor. See my recent Cariboo review on the reviews site. Another green product that the Baby Planners have in mind for Marissa are G-Diapers, which are a hybrid between cloth and disposable diapers that offer flushable inserts for easy disposal.

For baby bottles, The Baby Planners are recommending the Bisphenol-A free bottles from Born Free for Marissa and baby Zev.

BobrevolutionAnd finally for the all-important stroller, they are recommending not one, but two. Marissa is interested in a Bugaboo, but the Baby Planners are also recommending that she purchase a Bob Revolution. Exercise is a priority in her life, and this stroller is just perfect for taking in the outdoors with her new baby.

The Baby Planners don’t just help their clients with shopping forbaby.

It’s a boon to anyparent but particularly for busy celebrities like Marissa, who don’thave a ton of time to shop and prepare, but who truly want the verybest for their baby.
