Turn up the heat for February

Goods and gear for kids (and parents)

With Valentine's Day around the corner and cold weather still in store, it's a perfect month to turn up the heat with these fun and fabulous products.

It's a familiar problem for many parents: A pacifier helps a crying baby fall asleep, but when the pacifier falls out, the baby wakes up -- and the cycle repeats itself. Enter WubbaNub™, created by a Connecticut mom who sewed a small stuffed animal to her baby's pacifier, keeping it in place. The WubbaNub™ features a latex-free medical grade silicone pacifier and there are no strings, pacifier cords or clips. Available at www.wubbanub.com or through specialty stores and boutiques, for about $9.95.

"Not now -- Mommy's busy" takes on a whole new meaning with the Mommy's Busy Kit from Booty Parlor. Features a Mommy's Busy Booklet with "all the information you need to re-awaken your inner vixen," plus lip gloss, dusting powder, chocolate bar, scented candle, "naughty" bubble bath and a few special toys for those much-needed "me" moments. Buy for yourself or any deserving mom through www.bootyparlor.com.

Chase away bleak February days with a waterproof, warm blankie from Redmond-based Rugged Idea. The smallest-size Baby Changing Blankie ($38) rolls up to fit in a diaper bag. The larger Weatherproof Blankie ($58) features convenient ties to keep the blanket in place across a stroller, front pack or backpack. The Big Weatherproof Blankie ($68) is designed for toddlers or to fit across double strollers, For a list of local retailers or to order online, visit www.ruggedidea.com.

Put some extra love in your little one's lunch with the Love Bites™ Crustless Sandwich Cutter. In a single motion, this heart-shaped sandwich cutter removes the crust and seals the edges of your child's favorite sandwiches. Available online at www.mominventors.com for $3.99.
