7 A.M. Enfant Video Launch & Giveaway

I get really excited when companies I love do neat things, especially when the company has a product that I can’t live without. 7 A.M. Enfant is run by exceptional, driven women who have a penchant for art and design, even (and especially) when it comes to products that are traditionally lacking these things. The founder, Rebecca Campora is a French designer and mother in New York City. I had a sense of solidarity when she and I stayed up late emailing about this project, reconnecting after taking our children to events & rehearsals and long past tucking them into bed. Our passion and creativity isn’t hindered around our jobs as mothers, it’s only enhanced by it.

7 A.M. Enfant is the maker of the most useful and sharp looking stroller blankets & outerwear on the market. Their products are top of the line in quality, and have consistently stayed current through the seasons with their trendy colors and sleek designs and fabrics. As a city mom on the East Coast, these products are necessary and the standard amongst my fellow parents here during the colder months. Most of us don’t drive on a daily basis, so no matter what we’re out braving the elements with our babies running errands and floating around the city with kids in tow.

I’m thrilled to be teaming up with 7 A.M. Enfant to co-launch their new video created for the Pookie Poncho, an amazing product that can be used as either a baby carrier cover or a stroller/carseat blanket.

This video struck a chord with me. Perhaps it was the city elements that will no doubt forever give me a sense of the magic that we experienced living here, or maybe it was the attention to detail surrounding a normally mundane task. The truth is, living in the city with children can be very difficult. Bundling the kids to go outside is never a fun thing to do-at least for us-but it’s one of those things that we have do, sometimes several times a day. The video is so beautiful, it made me want to pay more attention to the moments when I’m actually mothering-a moment in between that normally would go without much thought. I loved that they made what is just a normal part of parenting in the city really sweet and beautiful… Appreciating the normal.

The Pookie Poncho was so easy to put over Beau in the carrier and straps on with velcro, so it can certainly be used universally-and comes with a separate hood for front carrying. I used it with Zoe in the Orbit stroller as well, and it was just as easy to put on properly. I put it on just like a jacket, and she was able to crawl in and out of it easily. The product comes with two hoods, one for the carrier and one for a carseat or stroller seat. The larger hood velcros in back and has full coverage like a jacket. All of these are important details, but my favorite has to be that it can be used as the child grows, or with siblings.

The Pookie Poncho is a really fantastic product-it makes those difficult times when small children really don’t want to be bundled in a stroller easier, technically, and I’m comforted as a mother knowing that they will be warm despite freezing outdoor temps. It helps that the styles are current and beautiful and my kids felt really cozy and warm in all of the products.

Win it!

The video is brilliant for how it plays on the the subtle irony with such grace and elegance. Getting my two year old in and out of his stroller can be enough to make me want to stay inside all day. A peaceful time of motherly reflection, it is not. However, putting the mittens on was the must have moment for me. They made it look so easy, making the futile fight against the will of a determined toddler seem like a distant memory, not an everyday occurrence. Well done 7am Enfant!!

I love the little guy pushing his stroller around, all excited to go out! I know another little guy who would get a lot of use out of that blanket in the long, cold winter in New Hampshire!

As a Grandmother and caregiver with arthritis, I loved the ease of putting the baby in the Pookie. So easy to to get my grandson in when we rush out to pick up his big brother at school.

the stats and labeling of kids because they are a certain percentile. I hate when people think cause I have a big boy he is going to be obese when he is older.

i just love the cozy lil bubs looks of adoration towards their mothers.

I hate when my kids are cold and exposed, even with the stroller blankets we already have- this seems so ideal.

Kirstin December 14, 2012 at 7:33 pm

I only wish my daughter was that happy to get in her stroller… ha! But the walking in the city with her in stroller or strapped to me in a carrier? THAT happens daily! ;)

DCH December 14, 2012 at 8:51 pm

I absolutely love how this product keeps your kids warm and is easy to set up on the stroller or carrier. Love how its easy for your child to get and and get out too! What a wonderful idea! :)

I just love this video, I love how easy it is to adjust and that it is so versatile! I’m in the Boston suburbs and I’ve been struggling to keep my 1 year old warm, so much so that most days I forego going outside because I simply don’t have anything to keep him warm in the stroller! This would be awesome! He loves to sleep in the fresh air. My make shift sheepskin from IKEA doesn’t cut it, just falls down all the time. He hates getting into his snowsuit, can’t even move in it.

PS: I’ve been trying to get in touch with 7 A.M. Enfant without success, would love to feature them on Eco-Babyz

That video reminded me quite a bit of my time spent in Melbourne, Australia, where my second child was born (my husband – we’re both Americans – completed his MBA there). We would often see four seasons in one day and because we lived in such an urban environment, we relied on public transportation or traveled on foot, so having my toddler daughter bundled up in the pram was a usual occurrence. Next July we’ll be returning to Melbourne, and this time I’ll have both my daughters, and my baby son along for the first time, as well. Would LOVE to have such a product to bundle my son in – as I said, four seasons in one day, lol – this would make for an easy quick change when the temperatures fluctuate. LOVE IT!

The part that resonates with me most is just walking with your children. I spend so much of my time in the car, driving kids to school or from school. I wish we could just walk- I desperately want to bundle the baby up in the stroller and walk to school, at least in the afternoons. We currently live about a mile from school, which is fine for me and fine for Isabelle who only has to walk home one way, but a little far for the other kids who have to do the round trip. But who knows? Maybe I could put one kid in the stroller and the baby in her carrier, both with the pookie poncho, and we could make it!

Monica December 17, 2012 at 2:02 am

I love that the pookie poncho covers the baby’s shoulders & upper body so well. Most covers don’t do that – they only go up chest-high and leave the rest open. Such an innovative idea!

I’m hoping I win because I love the simplicity of getting the children in and out of the stroller. I have a different stroller bundler and it’s very hard to Jack in and out. This looks far more user friendly. I also love it has a hood and can be used with a carrier too. I didn’t use a carrier with Jack, but I’m guessing it will be different with baby #2. Thank you for the detailed review and giveaway!

I can tolerate a lot of things, like my kiddos wearing bizarre outfits and headgear in public. I can not deal with my children being cold, in frigid weather under any circumstances. When I had my first child, I was so obsessed with 7A.M’s 212 evolution that I bought two! One for each stroller and an absolute necessity for a city mama. It has kept my children so warm and I feel fine braving the freezing weather knowing that I can snuggle up my littles up like a cocoon.

I love how this video seems to capture the essence of mama love. This mama wants to keep her darling son warm like I do – and the moment that resonates is when she secures the pookie poncho around his head.

It looks like they have awesome new products. I want those stroller mittens!

I enjoyed the video & would love to try their products! My favorite part was seeing how cozy both the baby & toddler looked while in the stroller & carrier. We had such a tough time keeping Alex warm during a rainy trip to Dublin last year: we only had our single stroller so she had to stay in the carrier & I was always trying to keep a blanket on her while walking around & Maggie would have been way more cozy touring around in the stroller like the little boy in the video!
