As moms or moms to be, I think we are always on the lookout for great brands and products for our children. Whether it be safety, sustainability, quality design or simply aesthetics, there are many reasons to be drawn to what we choose for them. Ideally, it’s all of these things rolled into one. Enter, Mushie. I was turned on to Mushie by a fellow mom, which is always a great sign because you know its tried and true! Mushie is a family-owned business that’s basically the full package. They are all the things I listed above and more. Mushie creates every day essential items, tableware, bedding, nursey art and toys. Their designs have a modern, Scandinavian look and consist of beautiful, muted colors, simple patterns, clean lines and quality materials. We use Mushie products daily in our house and I can’t say enough good things. Their bibs are probably my ultimate favorite. So, here’s my list of must have Mushie products. The best part?! I have a discount code for you! 20% off, just use the link below!
1. Silicone Baby Bib
Absolute must! I have three at home, one at my in-laws, one at our restaurant, and one in the diaper bag. They work so well and their catch-all pocket is a dream. It does just that, catches everything and spares those adorable outfits from getting stains. My son loves picking food he’s dropped and eating it right out of the pocket. The bibs come in a plethora of colors and many fun patterns. They are also a sinch to clean and easily fold down to basically nothing when traveling.
- Made from food-grade silicone, BPA and phthalate free.
- Resists stains and does not absorb water.
2. Pacifier Clips & Case
The pacifier clips were my first Mushie purchase. They have an assortment of colors, designs and lengths with combinations of silicone and wood beads. I love their simple and neutral look. I find most pacifier clips on the market are loud, bright and plastic. These are not for me! Aside from the fact that Mushie clips are aesthetically pleasing, they are also multipurpose. My son stopped using a pacifier early on so I began to loop the clips around his teethers. This allowed me to attach them directly to him, his stroller, car seat; really anywhere and I knew they would stay put. Also, let’s not forget, the clips themselves can be used as teethers! This product is a no brainer when it comes to practicality.
- Handmade by moms in the USA
- Silicone beads are made of premium quality 100% food grade silicone, 100% nontoxic, odorless, BPA free, and lead free.
- The wooden beads are natural and ecofriendly.
- The clasp is also lead free and the nylon string is mold and mildew resistant.
The Mushie pacifier case unfortunately came out after my son no longer used a pacifier. I was totally bummed about this but I have bought these for many friends/expectant mothers and they love them. This product also has a clean and simple design that come in several colors. They can hold up to three pacifiers and are super easy to clean. Dishwasher safe!
- Made from food-grade silicone
- 100% free from BPA, PVC and phthalates.
- Suitable for any pacifier brand.
- Sturdy strap
Perfectly pair these two items with Bibs Pacifiers-Mushie sells this Danish brand.
3. Stacking Cups Toy
My son loves this skill building toy! He places little objects inside the cups and enjoys knocking down the towers we build. We also use these cups in the bath as some have different shaped cut outs in the bottom which make it fun for water to run through. The cups come in a set of eight and are available in four color pallets. Not only do they stack but they fit into each other as well, making them fairly compact and easily portable. Despite this, I would still think twice about bringing these toys to a restaurant or public places as they may go flying into other people’s space and fall all over the floor.
- Stacking toys help develop both the body and the brain starting around six months
- Helps improve fine motor skills
- The basic skills learned from stacking toys become the foundation for more complex tasks like using a writing instrument
- Stacking toys help kids learn language skills
- 100% free from BPA, PVC and phthalates.
These practical placemats come in the same fun patterns as the bibs and most of the same colors. Currently we only use these when we’re out of the house because the mat doesn’t fit on our Tripp Trapp highchair tray. They are perfect for bringing to restaurants and will be great once my son transitions to sitting directly at the table with us. They stay in place and have a built-in lip around the edge which helps prevent plates from sliding everywhere. Does this always work, no. But it at least slows down the process so Mama can quickly react. The placements are easy to clean and very portable- just roll it up! Also, pet hack… I saw a comment that one woman uses these mats for under her cat’s food and water dishes which I thought was pretty genius so, I’m sharing!
- Made from food-grade silicone, these playful mats are BPA and phthalate free.
- Easy to clean, resist stains and do not absorb water.
5. Muslin Swaddle Blanket Organic Cotton
There are a million swaddle blankets out there but these are one of my favorites. First, they’re organic cotton, win! The swaddles are two layers of muslin, very soft and come in beautiful colors and delicate patterns. These blankets have so many uses- swaddle, blanket, liner, bed linen, nursing cover, stroller and car seat cover, beach blanket, layering blanket, the list goes on. These swaddles are on the larger side, over a meter in length, so I sometimes even wrap them around my waist at the beach and use them as a sarong!
- Made from 100% organic cotton
- Pre-washed for softness
- Muslin stays breathable while keeping baby warm
*Note* Cold wash on delicate. Tumble or hang dry.
6. Newborn Gift Set
This is an amazing set! You get 4 of the items I spoke about including the Pacifier clip, pacifier case, swaddle blanket, and stacking cups. Bonus, you also get a two pack of finger toothbrushes. This set has a five-dollar savings.
