I love hearing about new products and checking out new websites as I have the time. If you are newly pregnant and are looking for ideas for your nursery, Oilo might just have some for you. I’ve only had a baby nursery once and that was nearly 14 years ago, so you know the options available, as well as styles have changed so much! The items you will find at Oilo are bright, modern, but yet I thought some of Oilo has an old fashioned look to it too, but maybe that’s just me, since I’ve been around a while ;-). Either way it is fun to share this info with you. Hope all you expectant mamas can glean from it. Without further adieu, here’s the new info just in about Oilo, all the red lettering are links taking you to the appropriate page on Oilo’s website:
