When I had Chloe, it seemed like there were just a few basic things I felt I needed.  Off the top of my head, I know we had a carseat/stroller combo, a crib, a pack 'n play, a boppy, a swing, a diaper bag, a baby monitor, some clothes, and a couple of receiving blankets.  Things have changed since I had her just six short years ago, and even since I had Hazel less than two years ago, it seems the baby market has really exploded.  From baby fashion, to diaper bags, to baby monitors, to swaddles, to the "big" stuff like cribs, strollers, carseats, and high chairs, it seems the choices are nearly endless.
So how do you wade through it all?  You can ask friends, you can read online reviews, you can compare prices...but the thing that helps me make a decision is being able to handle an item in person.  That's actually how I discovered the Baby Cubby.  I was looking for car seats that had a three-across option right before I had Hazel, and I had heard that this little children's boutique in town had some of the more unique, high-end car seats (as well as the typical stuff), so I decided to head down there and take a look.
When I walked in, I think angels were singing.  


WHAT MAKES THE BABY CUBBY DIFFERENT?
The place is like Disneyland for moms and moms-to-be.  The Baby Cubby carries adorable nursery decor, endless swaddle choices, boutique children's clothing (Freshly Picked, Piper Finn, Billy Bibs, Lulu & Roo, Coco and Kiwi, Baby LitBooks, Saranoni, DockaTot, the list goes on and on).  They also carry really nice gear like the Uppababy Cruz/Uppababy Mesa, the Skip Hop high chair, the 4Moms Breeze playard, the Britax B line, and all the basic stuff too.  Like I said, it's a New Mom Playland.
Speaking of playlands, the other thing I love about the Cubby is that there's a great area for the kids to play where you have a pretty clear line of sight of them while you shop.  They always have the newest, coolest toys out (Tegu, Plan, Hape, Fat Brain), and usually a fun movie going too.  Heck, they've served my kids popcorn and suckers before!  (Well-played, Baby Cubby.)
Last but not least, the staff is great.  You can always call and ask if they have certain sizes or styles of things in stock and they will go check them for you (and even put them on hold).  They have moms working there that have experience raising babies and know what to recommend, which is so much more helpful than the childless teenage boys stocking diapers in the baby aisle at Wal*Mart.  
Oh, plus they price match.  If you find something on Amazon for a better price, you can walk right in and they'll give it to you for that price.  Freshly Picked having a sale?  Price match.  You get the drift.
  
SO.  If you live in Utah County, you need to hit it up.  It's located on the West side of the freeway off the 1600 North exit in Lindon.  But not for long--they are moving soon to a new location just across from Costco in American Fork.  Curse you, Baby Cubby....now you will be twice as easy to access. 
If you don't live locally, don't stress--you can access The Baby Cubby online, and you get free shipping every day on orders over $49.  OH!  Also, if you sign up for their newsletter, they let you know about special deals, promos, and sales going on, plus sometimes they send coupons for additional percentages off. 

 Win, win, win, win, win.

See you all there!
