News from ABC Kids Expo 2018…Baby Gear Coming Soon!

This week in Las Vegas is the ABC Kids Expo 2018 which is the chance for juvenile brands to showcase their latest and greatest products. This is also the chance for retailers, the general baby gear community and baby gear nerds like me to see what will be coming out later this year and in 2019. This is where the most innovative baby gear launches and we get to see the latest trends in baby gear. Below are just a few of our favorite baby gear products that are coming out of ABC (be sure to come back as we update this post through October 11th):

From the brand that brought us the Leaf and changed the way we looked at bouncers and the uber popular Nuna Pipa infant car seats comes their latest innovation with the Nuna Cudl Baby Carrier.  The Cudl is 3-in-1 carrier (front facing inward, front facing outward, back) with an integrated infant booster so there is no need for a seperate infant insert. The padded shoulder straps feature magnetic buckles to ensure super easy and secure closures. A storage pouch, built in hood and two infant bibs make this carrier easy for parents to use! (Available early 2019)

The UPPABaby Vista and Cruz changed the game when it came to strollers and have had the competition chasing them for years. The UPPABaby Mesa has been a popular infant car seat for parents to use seamlessly with the Vista but now UPPAbaby is bringing us the next step with the UPPABaby Knox Convertible car seat. We don’t have too many details yet but we do know it features visual confirmation that the car seat is installed correctly, a nine position no-rethread hardness and a multi-directional tether. The Knox will be available in four fashions. (Available Summer 2019)

The Clek Liing is suitable for babies from 4-35 lbs, weighs 9 lbs, offers a European belt path and a load leg.  (Available February 2019)

Halo has always been a leader in sleep safety and now they are offering a product that is not only for safe sleep but also may help babies and parents get more sleep. The Halo DreamNest 3-in-1 grows with your child from a rocking bassinet, to portable crib to travel cot. It features an open air sleep system with breathable mesh mattress and the EasySway rocker attachment allows you to gently soothe your baby to sleep. The bassinet attachement and EasySway rocker attachment work with your baby up to 15 pounds. (Available January 2019)

silver cross coast

The Silver Cross Coast is the latest in the single to double stroller game! The Coast is lighter and more streamlined than the Wave by Silver Cross which will have a lot of new parents celebrating. With the addition of the tandem seats and car seat adapters (it is currently compatible with Maxi Cosi, Nuna and Cybex) there are 17 total configurations. With the Coast you still get all the beauty and manufacturing expertise that Silver Cross brings.
