Welcome to This N That with Olivia’s Baby Gift Guide!
Are you a Mom-t0-Be or New Mom? Or maybe even someone looking for a perfect gift for the Mom-to-Be? This N That with Olivia’s Baby Gift Guide will feature products from the best baby brands out there in the form of reviews and sometimes giveaways. We are expecting our first little boy in October, 2014 so the search for great baby products is in full swing– those with great reviews are always at the forefront of our minds. Therefore, I plan to provide you with a review of some specific products from amazing baby brands.
Our first feature in the Baby Gift Guide is MAM products.

MAM sent me a variety of baby products including pacifiers, teethers and bottles. I am excited to introduce our little boy to these products when he arrives. I already had very positive thoughts about MAM products from other Moms who shared their favorite products with me and their reasonable prices. I would love to share with you my favorite features of each of the items I received:
MAM Pacifiers: MAM’s cutting-edge pacifiers combine technological innovation and trendsetting design to help give babies a healthy start in life. Developed by leading pediatric dentists and developmental psychologists, MAM pacifiers provide maximum comfort and style for babies of all ages. Clever design and lightweight materials make MAM pacifiers a pleasure to use. All MAM pacifiers feature an orthodontically correct nipple design that allows little ones to safely satisfy their sucking reflex while maintaining proper jaw and tooth alignment. MAM pacifiers feature an easy-to-grasp front knob and a curved shield for a comfortable fit that’s gentle on baby’s skin, thanks to generous air holes and MAM’s patented interior surface. MAM pacifiers are available in an assortment of colors and design motifs, and come in two nipple options: patented anti-slip Silk Teat™ Silicone or Natural Latex. Like all MAM products, the brand’s pacifiers are BPA-free, PVC-free, lead-free and CPSIA-Compliant.
MAM Bottles: MAM bottles combine technological innovation, medically sound function and trendsetting design to help feed babies right from the very start. Developed together with medical practitioners and developmental psychologists, MAM’s innovative bottles are carefully designed to meet baby’s feeding needs at every stage. MAM bottles are available in an assortment of colors and playful design motifs. All bottles utilize MAM’s patented, ultra soft silicone nipple for an easy transition from breast to bottle and feature leak-proof caps that help keep bottles clean when not in use. Like all MAM products, the brand’s bottles are BPA-free, PVC-free, lead-free and CPSIA-compliant. In addition, MAM bottles are dishwasher safe and specially formulated to withstand steam sterilization in the microwave.
MAM Teethers: MAM teethers ease teething discomfort and help foster baby’s active perception skills by training the senses. Developed together with medical professionals and developmental psychologists, MAM’s unique ergonomically-designed teethers provide safe chewing and cooling surfaces for babies of all ages and help encourage active learning through innovative design features. Bright colors and playful motifs sharpen the visual senses while curved, lightweight forms help promote baby’s coordination and movement. Teethers with cooling features are filled with distilled water and can be placed in the refrigerator for an hour before use for extra soothing relief. Thanks to MAM’s innovative design, only the cooling feature becomes cold, allowing the teether to cool sensitive gums while baby’s hands stay nice and warm. MAM teethers are sturdy enough to withstand tough biting, and are lightweight and dishwasher safe. Like all MAM products, the brand’s teethers are BPA-free, PVC-free, lead-free and CPSIA-compliant. In addition, MAM teethers are specially formulated to withstand steam sterilization in the microwave.
The products that I received from MAM are ready in our little man’s nursery for when he arrives. We were sure to register for some of the other products (like those featured in the Press Release below)! We trust the MAM brand and I am excited to feature them in This N That with Olivia’s Baby Gift Guide.

MAM Oral Care Rabbit, Start Pacifiers and Anti-Colic Bottles Win 2014 National Parenting Publications Awards
White Plains, New York, June 2014 – MAM products including the MAM Oral Care Rabbit, MAM Start Pacifiers and MAM Anti-Colic bottles have been named 2014 National Parenting Publications Award (NAPPA) winners. The Oral Care Rabbit and Start Pacifiers are Gold winners in the Gadgets ‘n’ Gear category and MAM’s Anti-Colic Bottle has been named a Silver winner in the same category.
Each year, NAPPA’s independent panel of expert judges and parents stringently test and evaluate hundreds of submissions and choose only the best of the best. Products are judged on innovation, safety, quality, educational value and the degree to which they assist busy parents and families. This year, 50 products were selected to receive the coveted Gold Award, while 129 others were designated as Silver or Honors winners.
“With so many products on the market, it’s sometimes hard for moms and dads to find time to separate the truly great from the rest of the pack,” says Julie Kertes, NAPPA General Manager. “Our testers save them that legwork by carefully evaluating hundreds of products and awarding only the best of the best.”
“MAM is thrilled to have our products recognized with 2014 NAPPA Awards, joining an exclusive list of stand-out products that make parenting easier,” said Isaac Cohen, Vice President of Marketing atMAM USA. “For over 35 years we’ve been obsessed with making products that are smart and simple to use. Our innovative pacifiers, cups, bottles and teethers provide solutions for parents and ensure optimal oral development for infants.”
MAM Oral Care Rabbit (0+ months)
Designed to maintain baby’s oral hygiene before teeth arrive, the MAM Oral Care Rabbit gently removes plaque and bacteria from baby’s mouth. Mom’s fingers tuck into the rabbit’s super soft “ears” like a glove, allowing her to gently massage and clean baby’s gums. Regular use of the MAM Oral Care Rabbit also helps prepare baby for a regular tooth brushing routine at an early age. Suggested retail price: $5.99.

MAM Start Pacifiers
MAM Start Pacifiers with their extra small and lightweight design are a perfect choice for newborn babies up to age two months. Developed in cooperation with the International Children Medical Research Society, MAM Start Pacifiers are recommended most by dentists and Orthodontists. The pacifiers feature MAM’s Ultra Soft Silicone Nipple which stays comfortably in baby’s mouth due to its anti-slip texture and the symmetrical nipple is ideal too for baby’s jaw development. The textured surface and multiple small openings on the pacifier shield Allow air to circulate and for baby’s skin to breathe. In addition to MAM’s patented anti-slip Silk Teat™ Silicone nipple, MAM Start Pacifiers also are available in a Natural Latex nipple option. Like all MAM products, MAM Start pacifiers are BPA-free, PVC-free, lead-free and CPSIA-Compliant. Recommended retail $7.49 for a pack of two.
MAM Anti-Colic Bottles
Ideal for newborns, the innovative MAM Anti-Colic Bottle helps reduce the stress associated with newborn feedings. Patented ventilation holes in the bottle’s base regulate the pressure balance of baby’s milk, allowing it to flow evenly without bubbles or air pockets for reduced gas and colic symptoms.
The bottle’s savvy design makes it a pleasure to use; wide openings at both ends allow for effortless filling and cleaning, and an innovative self-sterilizing feature lets busy parents sterilize an empty bottle in the microwave with a few simple steps. Available in a 5 ounce or 9 ounce size; recommended for newborns and up. Suggested retail price: $6.99 each and $13.49 for two.
