Metro Mama & Metro Baby

By Kim Taylor

May’s Diaper Bag contains a collection of items that are useful for moms on the go, out and about when it’s spring in the city. Paris is not the only place where springtime casts a dazzling spell and every block seems magical; New York City is in full gorgeous bloom as well.

You’ll require a chic diaper bag, and one that can really stand up to city park action, so the unique Go GaGa Bag should be on your radar. Designed with a “fanning” slide strap for extra comfort and strength, the Go GaGa bag is unisex (for when dad can help out), sturdy, large enough for everything baby needs, has insulated pockets for bottles and drinks, sections for diapers, and a changing pad. The fan-like strap distributes weight more evenly across your back and shoulders, and the bag is versatile enough to double as a computer bag and yoga bag too. Check the Go GaGa bags out at

The Fruits & Passion BEBE Kit To Go is a must-have in the diaper bag, along with the Protective Diaper Balm. This zip-up kit contains a moisturizing cream rife with safe, comforting and organic ingredients such as extracts of mallow, apricot, calendula, sunflower and orange blossom (and are sustainable as well). The Fruits & Passion BEBE Oatmeal Bath Milk and Body & Hair Wash are equally divine for your little angel! See it all at

When your hair is in your face and you can’t see, whip it back with style with one of the Di Mannoc ponytail holders, which do the job with a firm grip and leave you looking well-groomed. Choose from a tempting assortment that includes patent leather, canvas pastels, denim, leopard, python, zebra, black croc and a variety of leather colors. Pick your favorites at

Baby and you may have sensitive skin, and there’s nothing gentler and purer than fragrance-free goat’s milk soap. The makers of Alabu Soap products love kids, both the human and goat sorts, and Alabu is a family-run business in upstate New York. Choose from unscented formulations, essential oil formulations, and fragranced soaps crafted with high quality standards so meticulous that the products come with a 100% money-back guarantee if you’re not pleased. That’s integrity! Toss their Tea Tree Lotion Stick in your diaper bag, or baby face moisturizer, or shea butter lotion stick. Save your skin at

You’re in Central Park. You have the diaper bag handy, you have the baby kit, your hair is tied up and back and looks great, and you’ve just touched up your lips with your shea butter stick. Now you’re covered for at least six rounds of peek-a-boo.
