Quilts for the design snob in all of us

When I think of quilts, modern isn’t the word that jumps to mind. Cozy and comforting? Yes. Hip and fresh? Not really.  So when I came across the quilts made by Etsy seller Deer and Hippo I was delighted and more than a little surprised by just how at home they would be in the most modern of nurseries. They’re just the thing to add a bit of warmth to baby’s room. Each quilt is a one-of-a-kind heirloom piece meant to be loved and used for many years, just like a traditional quilt. But unlike a traditional quilt, these will...

Nom nom nom…blankets.

My 10 month old is teething. That means he’s chomping on virtually everything in our house. (Kind of gross when he chooses the wheels of the stroller.) I found a cool new blankie with attached teething toys, so I’m hopeful he’ll start gnawing on more appropriate things. The Teether Blankie from Petites Frites has four awesome teething toys attached to its corners. The teethers, which include a maple wooden ring, two pima cotton hand crochet shapes and a stuffed cotton gingham star, are secured to the blanket safely. Though truthfully, they’re too big to be choking hazards in the...

Is there anything new in the world of baby bibs? Shockingly, yes.

As much as I love how far bibs have come since my oldest was born 7 years ago, my biggest complaint has always been that they rarely stop food from getting on a kid’s collar–which also happens to be the hardest part of their clothes to wash. So I’m pleased to discover this brand new bib that solves that problem completely. Meet the Tuckaroo, the brain-child of mom of 2 Kerry Mazzacano, who like many of us, was sick of trying to get food and gook out of her kids’ collars. So she decided to do something about it...

A baby bib cute enough to wear out of the high chair

The thing about bibs is that they are made to get dirty. So I’ve never really cared much about what they look like. But I just discovered a collection of bibs that blends practical and chic. The stylish baby bibs from Ah Goo Baby come with wrap around collars (great for not getting baby’s hair caught in the closure!) and are made in an array of very cool patterns. I love the pop-art poppy (pictured) as well as the zoo frenzy featuring a bunch of animals in a, well, frenzy-like pattern. Everything we’ve ever seen from this brand is...

A sleepsack with your baby’s name on it. Literally.

I had my trusty HALO sleepsacks to thank for getting me a few nights of sleep when blankets weren’t the safest option for my little roly poly babes. So how cool to hear about a new collaboration between HALO and Pottery Barn Kids that’s surprisingly budget friendly. The new Chamois Dot HALO SleepSacks feature exactly what I love: soft, warm fabrics, no sleeves (so babies don’t overheat) and a double zipper for easy diaper changes. And I love that you can have a name embroidered on them, making them a great baby gift. Best of all, at just under...

A bicycle built for a little one.

My 5-year old son’s now security blanket is a handmade one we featured here on Cool Mom Picks awhile back. Cool how that happens. So when I saw these beautiful baby blankets at Dandelion Baby, I imagined that they could easily become a favorite for one of your lucky kiddos too. Handmade to order by mom-of-3 Nicole Brown, these lovely blankets combine two of my favorite fabrics: modern cotton prints and a soft plush underside. I’m loving the gender-neutral styles, like the hip bicycle print blanket (pictured), but I’m also taken by the sweet lime giraffes. Admittedly I’m not...

Pink bedding for girls, hold the cavities

I’m a big fan of gender-neutral colors, especially for the nursery. For my boys’ room I mixed in the requisite blue with lime, red and brown, all of which I consider both boy and girl-friendly. When I saw the new ultra-modern pink nursery designs from Olli and Lime, I actually had a change of heart–they are that cool. We are already big fans of the toddler bedding from Olli and Lime, which is best known for its gender-neutral nursery designs, so when they introduced their first “all about pink” collection (our name), we were interested to see how they...

A safer, cozier place for baby to sleep than the car seat

Editor’s Note: The Nap Nanny and Chill have been recalled by the CPSC. You should discontinue use immediately and return it to your retailer.  The last 8 1/2 months have not been easy. That’s how long ago our second child was born. And that was the last time I got a full night’s sleep. One place our baby always seems to fall fast asleep is the car seat, which I’m not a big fan of since it’s not exactly the most ergonomically-correct place to snooze. So I was thrilled to discover a cushier alternative that promises to lull babies...

Crib bumper safety – no longer an issue with this bumper-less option

There’s always been so much controversy about crib bumper safety. Even so, when my first son was a baby, I always longed for a bumper. They looked so cool in the crib and added that extra bit of style to the nursery. However since 2010 was the year that they banned the bumper, skip*hop has been smart to create a very clever alternative The new Complete Sheet from skip*hop is a bumper-less crib sheet that lends the look of an actual bumper. Sounds like magic, right? The truth is, it’s really a pretty simple sheet, with a contrasting design...
