Cute new gender neutral onesies for babies who refuse to be pigeonholed thank you very much. (Lots of progressive babies out there!)

To beat the summer heat, like lots of parents I like going with a simple and light wardrobe for our new bundle. I am currently on the hunt for some awesome onesies to showcase my baby girl’s sweetness. Yes, baby boys are sweet too. They all don’t have to be FUTURE SPACE NINJA SUMO WRESTLING GALACTIC LORDS. So I love the new gender-neutral baby onesie collection from Susie Ghahremani of CMP fave indie shop Boygirlparty. Your little boy or girl  can wear these gender-neutral, extremely charming, very cute onesies all summer long and still lounge in comfort and style. – Don’t miss an exclusive discount...

New baby memory books for parents who find other baby books a little too traditional.

Being a parent definitely makes you realize how fast time flies by. Case in point: my baby girl, who I feel like I had yesterday, is almost ready for solids. Meanwhile, my nearly two-year-old son is spitting out new words every day. But when you’re running on zero hours of sleep, who has time to document all of baby’s milestones let alone turn them into something Pinterest-worthy? Well, the adorable new baby memory books from Lucy Darling were designed with busy, sleep-deprived parents in mind. And if all the traditional, cutesie, pink gingham and baby blue chevron books aren’t your speed, I really think you’ll like...

Love letters to your baby. Future you will thank you.

If we ask my four-year-old to help out with something, he’s taken to tipping an imaginary hat and saying, “Happy to sublige.” As in, happy to oblige. How Downton Abbey of him. He’s always cracked us up, but when I try to think of specific things he’s said, all I can hear in my head is the grandparents in my life who told me a million times, “I hope you’re writing this stuff down.” Thus: Letters to My Baby by one of our favorites, Lea Redmond of Leafcutter Designs.

Rag and Bone Bindery’s sweet handcrafted photo albums make perfect gifts for Mother’s Day

We all love to give photos as gifts here at Cool Mom Picks, and they’re especially wonderful when you have really nice photo albums to put them in. I feel like the only way I see pictures anymore is through Instagram or custom photo books, which I love, but there’s something special about holding real, printed photos in an actual album. My favorite right now: the handcrafted photo albums from CMP fave, Rag & Bone Bindery which is out with some terrific new designs. If there’s anyone in the world who’s going to want to get pictures of your kids for...

Rag and Bone personalized baby books are for all loving families. Because so are babies.

In a way, we’re less surprised that someone has come out with the first ever personalized baby books for same sex couples–and more surprised that it took this long. That said, we’re thrilled, since we love finding baby books and baby memory books that are just perfect for the families who choose them. And no one does that better in the first place than Rag & Bone Bindery. The traditional, entirely handmade baby book from Rag & Bone now has an option which allows you to add Two Moms or Two Dads pages right into their beautifully simple baby books.  While beautifully illustrated prompts like...

Document your baby’s firsts, Petunia Pickle Bottom-style

The first time I saw a diaper bag from Petunia Pickle Bottom more than eight years ago, it was love at first sight. Compared to the dowdy black diaper bag I had, it was a revelation to see the bright floral patterns and the attention to construction detail. We have come to expect amazing new designs every year, but we’re so delighted that they just launched a brand new baby book today, and we get to be the first to show it to you! It might even be the reinvention of the baby book. We’re excited about Petunia Pickle...

Parenthood Listography: It’s a baby book, it’s a parenting keepsake journal, and it’s hilarious

Raise your hand if you’ve ever felt guilt–even a little–over those unfinished baby book pages, incomplete prompts and photo spaces that really, you swear you meant to put a photo in…one day… Yeah, well, me too. Which is why I think I may have found the best book ever for parents. Especially because your kids don’t have to be babies for you to ue it.   Parenthood Listography: My Kid In Lists is just that. Lisa Nolan has created an absolutely wonderful solution for parents who want to remember stuff, but can’t always remember to remember. Each page has...

The best baby’s first year calendar: Precious and totally low pressure. (We like low pressure.)

I am a planner: to-do lists, calendars, and Post-Its rule my universe and make me feel complete. You would think that I would have been all over the baby book record keeping, right? Looking back, I think it was a commitment issue, the same way I never feel right about writing in nice journals. The concept was just a little too permanent and formal for my freewheeling, note-scribbling self. So while I might have to tune into my husband’s YouTube channel to see what my babe was doing when, I have found the perfect solution for others looking to...
