The best part of being pregnant this Summer?  You can wear this dress from More of Me maternity designs.  Gone are the days when maternity clothes were drab and boring.  Just ask More of Me designer, Jessica Boulanger, whose designs allow women to maintain their chic appearance during pregnancy.  According to Jessica, her designs are for women who wish to avoid maternity clothes like the plague....often buying regular clothes many sizes too big and trying to make it work.  

The More of Me collection is designed to look like the most stylish non-maternity clothes, yet is crafted with luxurious, pregnancy-friendly fabrics and exceptional maternity fit. Because, let’s face it, your body is a tad unrecognizable when you're expecting.  Designed by a fashion-conscious mom, More of Me has heard women say things like: “I know I’d have to give up sushi, soft cheese and dirty martinis, but these styles make me want to get pregnant for the clothes!” Now that’s quite a compliment.

We love the versatility of the designs.  They're perfect for casual wear as well as dinners and weddings.  And there's no end to the fun, stylish designs for the Summer.  Some of our favorites include:  the Momshell Dress (love the flattering asymmetrical cut), the Ikat Print Kimono Dress (fun, summery pastel colors) and the full length Take it To the Maxi (hide those swollen ankles).

We're not the only ones in love with the line.  Hollywood's hottest mamas and mamas-to-be including Bethenny Frankel and Tiffany Thiessen have been spotted out and about looking chic in their More of Me fashions.

More of Me is offering CBS readers an incredible exclusive deal.  Enter coupon code babyscoop20 upon checkout and receive 20% off your purchase.

Almost every parent invests in a baby crib mobile.  Babies just love them because it calms them when they're trying to go to sleep.  Once they're old enough to pull the mobile down, however, most parents remove them.  For those of us who'd like to continue to entertain our tots with mobiles even as they outgrow the crib version, we introduce you to the Fandangling.

The Fandangling quickly turns any ceiling fan into an interesting mobile that is totally safe for kids of all ages, as it's out of their reach. It's an entertaining, unique baby/child gift that will last much longer than traditional mobiles.  Choose from fun themes such as butterflies, safari, underwater adventure, sports, bugs and more.  Or you can customize your own.  The kits easily attach to any ceiling fan in minutes. Then just set your fan to low speed and let the fun begin!

Another thing we love about Fandangling is that they donate 10% of the proceeds to organizations such as Build.org and ThinkingOutsidetheCage.org.

Expecting mommies often hear about the benefits of playing music for your baby while it’s in the womb. The old school version of putting headphones around your belly has finally been revamped! Now, with Lullabelly, you can plug in your iPod or MP3 Player and let your baby listen to any music of your choosing.

Some experts say listening to music in the womb encourages learning, language development and memory skills. Expand your baby's horizons by playing lullabies, audio books, foreign language recordings, and introduce him or her to the voices of friends and family who don't live nearby.  Plus, playing the same music after birth can help your baby sleep better. The Lullabelly prenatal music belt offers a more modern, comfortable way to help your baby’s development with your favorite music! And it’s a great way for daddy to get involved, let him pick the tunes for the iPod!  
 
Any mom-to-be will tell you that stretching a headset across your belly is clumsy and hard to position. The Lullabelly prenatal music belt can be used whether you are on the go or just relaxing home. It is extremely soft, flexible, lightweight and comfortable. The large pocket is ideal for carrying your portable MP3 player or other small accessories. The Lullabelly even comes with built-in speakers and adjustable volume control.  Choose from pastel green, blue or pink, yellow, chocolate & mint.
