Modern nursery decor to welcome babies, without a princess crown or a train in sight.

It’s been a while since I found handmade modern nursery decor and crib bedding that made me yearn (almost) for an opportunity to redecorate a nursery, and I’ve definitely found it with the Ivie Baby Etsy Shop. You can choose from tons of modern designs. I think what I like best is how they’re all gender-neutral and free from baby room clichés; no ballerinas, no airplanes, no bunny rabbits. Those graphic grey and white crib sheets or lime green pillows are perfect for any baby who gets to spend those early months amidst a modern nursery — and are...

Chevrons: Yep, still in.

Winter is just around the corner whether we like it or not, and with the chilly weather comes all of those extra layers for baby (and the extra hours to get out the door!). When it comes to combining style with warmth for the littlest ones, no one does it better than 7 A.M. Enfant, easily the BMW of stroller blankets. And their newest offering injects some serious style into your baby’s winter getup. I love the new chevron-striped B212 Evolution stroller blanket and not just for its great looks.

DIY: Cute napmat for preschoolers. No guarantees if it will actually get them to sleep.

Whether or not your preschooler actually sleeps during naptime, their teachers will attempt to make such a thing happen. (My kids? Never.) If you have sewing skills, there’s something really sweet about making your own napmat for little student so they feel a piece of you with them when they’re away from home.  I am really taken with this tutorial at one of my favorite crafty sites, The Purl Bee, for a DIY nap mat for children. It’s actually got a pillow and light blanket built right in, and only uses two (large) pieces of fabric–in this case, a soft...

If you’re looking for a baby gift that’s going to stand out from the other baby gifts–in more ways than one–we think we’ve found one that’s perfect. And perfectly adorable. The personalized name baby leggings from Jennifer Ann are so beautifully designed. We’ve seen similar and they always look a little…wonky. But these? Wow. Made from 100% organic cotton right in the USA, each pair is entirely handsewn to order. The printing quality is really beautiful, and I love both the script and the block type fonts–and the number of color choices. You can even get a matching personalized baby...

aden + anais just made summer a little cooler. Babies everywhere say thank you.

My daughter was born smack in the middle of the summer, so it was a constant battle to find fabrics that kept her comfortably swaddled but not too hot. Luckily, a new line of baby blankets and sleepwear from one of our favorite indie labels, aden+anais, makes it simpler to navigate the heat when baby #3 comes along. We love everything at aden+anais (they have Hello Kitty muslin!). We have included their swaddles in our Baby Shower Gift Guide, and the new line of bamboo baby swaddles and bamboo sleep bags make us love them even more. It’s so...
