The Maternity Three-Way

I can personally attest to the fact that by the time you pop that baby out, you’re ready to burn all your maternity clothes. Not just because most of them aren’t up to your prepartum style standards, but because you wear them so much you’re just damn tired of looking at them. With that in mind, the 3-in-1 dress from NEST by Swanky Maternity is that perfect addition to the maternity closet

The Wonderful, Terrible Twos

Those of us who have ever dated a musician (ahem) can agree that deep down, they are all children. Which is why it’s perfectly logical that the faces of a hip act like, say, The New Amsterdams, also are the minds and mouths behind a fantastic new kids’ band.

More Mommies To Love

In a world where Heather has two mommies, as do her friends Olivia, Aiden and Sam, we think it’s high time the old standby "I love my mommy" onesie took on a 21st century twist. The I love my moms shirt from the always wonderful Wry Baby comes in sizes 0-6 and 6-12 months, or T-shirts up to size 6T but the sentiment will fit forever. And to answer your question, yes, it comes in a dads version as well. No discrimination here. –Liz In a world where Heather has two mommies, as do her friends Olivia, Aiden and...

Dinner for One, Hold the Microbes

Whoever invented the Tiny Diner Portable Placemat has definitely walked a mile in my shoes. Whenever we go out to eat, I have no choice but to put pieces of food right on the table because my year-old son is known to send his plates sailing without so much as a head’s up, suckas!

My Kind of D.I.Y.

While I’m a fairly crafty person, there are a few things I would never attempt. Like items I might actually wear out of the house. Then again, considering how picky I can be about my accessories, I admit that the thought has crossed my mind.

Son-of-a-Kind

Since my kids (as we all feel) are like no others, it’s nice to stock their wardrobe with clothes that are the same way – like the one-of-a-kind shirts from Havins Originals. Inspired by good old rock and roll and a love for vintage design, owners/designersSandi and Vikki have created a truly unique product; no two shirts are alike

How Do You Spell Excellent Gift?

I love hunting for personalized art for children. But I admit an aversion to those painted plaques adorned with the ubiquitous puffy-pen scribbled names. I suppose I like my art to be actual art and not some craft project from the nice old lady down the block.

We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Barbies

Thanks to my mother-in-law, that 36-22-36 blonde doll made an unwelcome entrance into my toddler’s toy gallery this holiday season. But that doesn’t mean I’m giving in to all future Barbie requests so fast. It just means I’m going to have to find something ten times cooler than her royal plastic majesty.

Sometimes a Mama Wants to Feel Like a Princess Too

We tend to shy away from the "designer" diaper bags on Cool Mom Picks. When it comes down to it, the thing is going to tote around leaky bottles, ripped bags of crushed Cheerios, and good old poop. But let’s be honest, beautiful accessories make you feel good, especially during those postpartum days when you need all the feeling good you can get.
