At parent-child industry trade shows, everyone has their eyes open for brands can surprise, continue to innovate, or flat-out impress. Here are several brands from the LA Baby consumer show that exceeded expectations, made rapid on-site sales, and delivered across the board.

Happ diaper bagHAPP Brand Diaper bags fall into a dense segment of brands producing similar products. Differentiation is hard, but HAPP has honed their product and message in a focused way. Yes, the line of bags are beautiful and extremely lightweight, but what really resonates is the founder’s understanding of a new generation of women who continue to foster their social life and their family life without compromising their identities. This bag is for the mom who plans to grab it on her way out the door – whether she’s had time for a shower or not – and feel confident that she has what she needs to get through the day, and that she can do it in style. HAPP Brand believes that being a mother doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice being a woman.


Motherlove One of the many underserved aspects of motherhood are cracked nursing nipples. It just isn’t one of those things that moms can prepare for prior to delivery, and it can be surprisingly painful, limiting, and emotionally difficult as well. As one reviewer puts it, Motherlove is love. They offer a vast array of sprays, salves, and supplements for pregnancy, breastfeeding, and birth. But their nipple cream garners their most rave reviews. Dads, want to be a hero? Make sure there is an ample supply of Motherlove nipple cream on hand. It heals, softens, and protects, and is a must have for nursing mothers. If that’s not enough reason to feel good about Motherlove, there’s no greenwashing here either. Their products are certifiably organic and resonate on every social level you can imagine, from sustainable farming and manufacturing practices to donating 10 percent of profits through their Nurturing Life Foundation. Clearly, great companies make great products.

Happy ourHappy Our Make every hour Happy Our. Obsessed with baby’s comfort, this brand constructs sheets, blankets, shirts, gowns, and nursing covers with re-engineered double-knit organic bamboo cotton. The result is an ultra-soft, highly breathable baby fabric. The open-gauge knitted inner layer creates space and allows airflow so it doesn’t trap heat or sweat, while the outer layer is silky and soft, providing durability and touchability, achieving the best of both worlds. The designs are clean, modern, simple, and timeless. Word-play marketing and poetic product descriptions build that emotional bridge between consumers and the brand. While the brand is new in the last few months, it’s clear they have lasting power. Maybe Happy Our is your next go-to-gift for the new moms in your life.

kinbe baby shoesKinbe New to market Kinbe, is changing the baby shoe game with an adjustable moccasin. Two hidden straps adjust to create a longer lasting fit for your baby.
