Cashmere for toddlers, handmade lotions and soaps from an agricultural cooperative in northern Israel and tuxedos for Gen-Y males are just a few of the new products retailers are designing new concepts around.


The retail industry has become so saturated with me-too concepts that new retailers, in order to succeed, need to have a laser focus on their market segment and open stores different from those already in the market.


"We are seeing people take one thing and try to become really good at it," says Mike Tesler, partner and principal of Retail Concepts. The Norwell, Mass.-based firm consults with new business owners to help them establish their chains. "If you get known for being the best at that one thing, you've won the game in retail."


For example, Sabon, an Israeli-based chain that sells bath and beauty products, has a more narrowly defined market than mainstream competitors Bath & Body Works and

From the beginning of a child's life, products intended for a child must be selected with safety in mind. More infants die every year in accidents involving cribs than with any other nursery product. Thousands of infants are injured seriously enough to require treatment in hospital emergency rooms. This article discusses what you need to know about crib safety, whether your crib is new or not, and also takes a look at crib toys.


If you're buying a new full-size crib


1. Corner posts should not extend more than 1/16 inch (1-1/2 mm) above the top of the end panel. Corner posts can be catchpoints for items placed around a child's neck or clothing worn by the child.



2. Mattress support hangers should be secured by bolts or closed hooks. All crib hardware should be securely tightened and checked frequently.



3. Bumper pads, if used, should (a) fit around the entire crib, (b)

CBB choose Bratt Decor's Venetian 3-in-1 crib as "The Best Iron Crib on the Market"

-------


During pregnancy, one of first things new parents think about buying is the crib. It's also the purchase that requires the most lead time, so it's wise to start weighing your options around your second trimester. Like most purchases, there are so many variables to consider. Well, we've been there, done that, and want to help guide you through this important decision.



Best Iron Crib


Name: Bratt Decor Venetian 3-in-1

Daine Farr returned from her June honeymoon in the Maldives with a special souvenier: a baby on the way! And it's a good thing: The star who plays FBI agent Megan Reeves on season two of the CBS hit Numb3rs, could hardly wait to start a family with her new hubby, marketing executive, Seung Chung. Seung got me an ovulation kit for Valentine's day, for months before we got married! Diane, 33, tells Life & Style.





Their baby boy is not due until March, but Diane, a former interior designer, already has the nursery finished, down to the last detail. Her favorite purchase? A metal crib. "It's antique gold and very simple, the most beautiful crib I've ever seen," says Diane. The angel cutout that rests behind it was a find at a yard sale 10 years ago.





As for the color scheme, the actress stayed away from the usual

The newness of an infant, the innocence and purity, usually conjures images of crisp white furnishings in the nursery. But there is something about bringing home the next generation of a family that naturally compels us to reflect on our heritage and ancestors. I find comfort in surrounding not only the infant but also the new parents with mementos of yesteryear. Vintage photos, antiques and family keepsakes calm the spirit with the promise of continuity and the soothing balm of familiarity.


I am finding a shift in nursery design is taking place, influenced partly by the large numbers of women waiting longer to have children. These mature, more established moms-to-be want the nursery to be sophisticated and flow seamlessly with the style of the rest of the home. Also, many of today's new moms are employed--spending more time away from home. They want to feel relaxed and at peace in

It's surreal to be getting ready for twins--I can't believe it's actually happening.


Charlie is a baseball fanatic, so we decided to go with a subtle baseball theme for the nursery. We told our designer that we didn't want anything too over the top, and she struck the perfect balance between sporty and sophisticated. Simple touches like the adorable baseball lamps are fun but subtle.


Charlie was very involved in the planning; he cares about all the little details. He wanted to make sure that the carpet was nice and plush! And the twin glider rocking chairs and ottomans will be perfect for baseball watching with the boys!


It's hard to name my favorite part of the nursery, but I love the sleek cribs and changer from Bratt Decor's Blu Collection! They look like they will stand up to the destruction of two boys. And I am also super excited

Go Green In The Nursery


The biggest change I've noticed in the world over the last five years, would be the world wide awakening that has happened as far as our responsibility to this earth, and how we can evoke positive changes. I have to say, that I am thrilled with this new state of being. I am a nature lover, most peaceful in the mountains, and being half Lumbee Indian, I always felt a special connection to the earth, the forest, the rivers, the air . . . So, naturally I've tried to incorporate respect for the earth in all areas of my life, including my business. And, as more and more demand for eco friendly products emerge, so do the resources to create them. That is one of the reasons I love business, it will make available what we demand, and if our consciousness turns toward more responsible behavior,

What does it take to put together a fantastic nursery? It turns out you don't need a huge budget, interior designer pals or even a perfect space--just a little creativity and sense of what will work for your family. In fact, the whole process was a lot easier than P&N's very pregnant AMY BRAYFIELD expected it to be--which is a good thing, since she waited till pretty much the last possible minute to prep her own nursery.


Things to consider.....


Think furniture


You're going to need a crib and a storage center, but beyond that, think about what you and your baby will really need. Some moms can forego, say, a changing table completely, while other moms swear their changing table was an essential they couldn't live without.


When it comes to furniture, the key is to think about how you'll really use it. If it's important to you to be able to move

New parents spend between $5,000 and $15,000 to decorate Baby's nursery, according to the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association, driving a $7.3 billion industry. That's a lot of money to spend on a room Junior can't enjoy until he's crawling.


Parents spend a lot of time in their new baby's room, which is why some parents consider their own decorating likes and dislikes when creating a nursery.


Sarah Horn, owner of SHA, said parents are looking for custom pieces to put in nurseries. "People are liking to create their own now, versus buying something off the shelf," she said. "Once somebody realizes they can really put their personal touch on it, they tend to like it."


Including Mom and Dad's personality in nursery decor gives the room a comfortable and personal feel. It also creates a space they enjoy spending time in-and they will be spending a lot of time in it.
