Kiddopotamus®


We are proud to feature Kiddopotamus® as our final post for the month of August, 2007. We spoke with Kristen Peterson, Vice President of Kiddopotamus® & Company.

Can you tell us about Kiddopotamus®?

At Kiddopotamus®, we take the time to develop smart, well made products that enhance infant's safety, comfort and developmental needs, and at the same time make parenting a little simpler. Our product line includes nursery, travel and feeding accessories, all of which are designed with scrupulous attention to detail.

What was the inspiration behind the development of the Organic Collection?

We set out to create a line of products as pure as the babies who use them. Organically grown cotton is not only better for the environment, it is better for baby's tender skin. Our 100% organic cotton is grown with no pesticides and no bleach, dyes or chemicals.


AWARDS:


Kiddopotamus® products are the recipients of 31 national and international awards, including 3 JPMA Product Innovation Awards, 16 iParenting Media Awards and Editor's Choice Awards from four different parenting publications.


The Organic Collection:

Kiddpotamus® offers parents a wide range of innovative products. We have chosen to highlight the following 3 products from their Organic Collection.


SwaddleMe® in Organic Cotton By Kiddopotamus®



  • Wrap your baby in the comfort of the 100% Organic Cotton SwaddleMe® and rest assured she will sleep safe, sound and secure.
  • The renowned SwaddleMe® soothes infants and reduces symptoms of colic by recreating the familiar, soothing snugness of the womb. It also reduces the incidence of the startle reflex, allowing babies to sleep for longer periods of time.
  • The award-winning SwaddleMe® has revolutionized the way babies – and parents – sleep around the world and it has forged an international renaissance in swaddling.
  • Made with soft 100% certified organic cotton knit with no bleach, dyes or chemicals. The premium quality cotton is as gentle to your newborn’s skin as it is to the environment your baby will inherit.


Dreamsie® Organic Cotton Sleeper & Sleep Cap by Kiddopotamus®



  • The Dreamsie® Organic Cotton Sleeper provides a simple and naturally soft alternative to loose blankets, keeping baby safely covered for better sleep and sweeter dreams!
  • The full-length, easy-to-use zipper makes nighttime changes simple, while the zipper placket protects baby’s skin with a sweetly embroidered star tab covering the zipper pull.

Success Through Play™ Comments:

Kiddopotamus® and Company have really impressed us with their professionalism and excellent customer service and we can clearly see why they have achieved outstanding success internationally and their products have won numerous awards! They have been very generous in sending us samples for our parent panel and we thank them! The Kiddopotamus® products in the organic collection are made from the softest organic cotton that is free of chemicals, certified by OCIA® and is a dream to touch. High quality stitching and innovative design and engineering are to be found throughout this organic collection. What initially struck us about the organic collection from Kiddopotamus® is that each product arrives in a beautifully crafted eco-friendly organza bag. There is no plastic in sight, which was such a welcome addition.

SwaddleMe® :
This is a perfect product for parents and caregivers who are new to swaddling. This is swaddling made easy! A stand out feature of the SwaddleMe® is that you can change your little ones diaper without having to redo the entire swaddle.This is pure genius! The parents on our test panel fell in love with the SwaddleMe® and raced to the stores to buy more. "The SwaddleMe® is so easy to use and soothed my little one instantly".

Dreamsie®:
This is the modern alternative to loose blankets. With the Dreamsie®, you won't have to worry about your little one kicking off their blankets during the night or getting stuck under a blanket. Our panel panel exclaimed: "the organic cotton is so soft against baby's skin and we feel relieved knowing that she can't get trapped underneath any loose blankets".

Swaddleset™:
This set arrives with a large 43 inch square swaddling blanket which is the idea size for swaddling. Most swaddling blankets on the market are far to small, however this one is perfectly sized! The newborn sleep cap is adorable and since newborns lose heat through their heads, this cap will be a welcome addition to your newborn's layette. The SwaddleSet™ arrives with a wonderful educational booklet called The SleepyBye Baby Booklet™ (14 pg parenting guide). You will learn about the benefits of swaddling, taught how to swaddle your baby plus learn the Ten Golden Rules for Infant Sleep! This booklet is a wonderful introduction and reference guide for parents and caregivers. The parents commented that the Swaddleset™ would make an ideal gift! "The Swaddling blanket is the perfect size; my other swaddling blankets are far too small, but this one is just right". The panel raved about the SleepyBye Baby Booklet™ and were so impressed that Kiddopotamus® decided to include informational materials with their products. "This company really cares and goes the extra mile, which we really appreciate". We couldn't agree more!

The Organic Collection is very well priced, especially considering that each product is made from 100% organic cotton and is top quality. We commend Kiddopotamus® for going "Green" and we really hope to be able to feature additional products from them in 2008.
