Check Out our Quilted Backpacks for Kids!

It’s almost the start of the school year!  Whether your child is heading off to preschool or returning for another year of grade school, one of the most important things they’ll need is the perfect kids’ bag or backpack.

Our baby boutique in Philadelphia has a wide selection of backpacks for boys and girls, and they even have the option to be personalized! Personalization is a great way to help your child decipher which backpack is theirs, and to prevent them from losing it. Choose to add your child’s first name, or monogram the backpack with their initials. A personalized backpack also makes a thoughtful gift for a child, grandchild, niece or nephew.

When you send your little one off to school with one of our personalized quilted backpacks for kids, he or she will be excited to show it off while remaining organized. Each bag features an easy, yet strong magnetic snap and drawstring closure. There is also a handy pocket with coordinating zipper pull.

Is your toddler not heading off to school just yet? These bags can double as a diaper or change bag. Moms will love that they’re easy to care for, and are machine washable!

Swimming with Your Baby or Toddler

If you have a pool at home, you may wonder what age it’s best to teach your children to swim. As per the American Academy of Pediatrics, most children are thought to be developmentally ready for swim lessons by age 4.

However, toddlers younger than 4 can still enjoy being in the water. Infant and toddler aquatic programs have become increasingly popular for both parents and kids. For young babies, however, a large pool can possibly be frightening. If possible, go to a small pool where there are fewer children and less noise.

It’s also important to remember that a pool’s water temperature needs to be much higher than usual if you’re going to take your baby swimming. Babies get cold quickly, so the recommended water temperature is at least 90 °F.

The time of day you and your baby go swimming can also make a difference. Try going in the early evening – your baby may be so exhausted afterwards that he or she will sleep through the night!

Early swim lessons are a good way to teach your kids to enjoy being in the water. When you do go for a swim with your baby or toddler, don’t forget the baby oil, swim diapers, and personalized hooded towels!
