This onesie is a snap

I cannot tell you how many times I’ve mis-snapped my kids’ onesies. Thousands of days of practice and I still do it wrong. Now really, in theory, it’s not that big of a deal to just fix it except that it drives me up a wall every time. So I am completely sold on the ingenious idea that Redsnapper Baby has: Add a patented middle red snap so you hit your target every time. Super simple. Super smart. But of course you’re not buying your baby’s clothes for the snaps alone, so good thing there are a few cute...

Sweet slippers for your special sprite

Up until now, I thought of kids’ slippers as a blah winter afterthought or last minute stocking stuffer. But once I saw my own little fairy stomping around the house in these Pixie Slippers from Organic Echo, I realized that they’re not just foot warmers. They can be part of the magical dress-up extravaganza that goes on all day, every day in my house: They’re pixie slippers. No, they’re Jasmine’s slippers from Aladdin. No, they’re a tiny rabbit’s car. No, they’re rhinoceros boots, whatever that means. Each pair is hand-made and hand-stitched from old sweaters, and you can even...

Oh the cuteness of denim baby bums

If you needed any more evidence that denim is hot again, take a look at the new denim diaper cover I just spotted at babyGap. I love the dark wash with the slight fade on the bum, and that little pocket in back is too cute for words. It would look super swell on a little girl with nothing more than a little strappy tank this summer–but I think what I really like is that it could work on baby boys too. Eh, there’s always time for cargo shorts. For now, let those chubby little thighs be seen by...

Daddy and me shirts for Father’s Day – admit it. It’s adorable.

Oh stop it you cynics. Most dads — especially the new ones — would be thrilled to spend Father’s Day flouting their dadness on their chest, and that of their doting progeny. So we’ve tracked down a few of the more clever daddy and me sets, just perfect for that special guy on June 20. And trust me, there were a lot of bad ones to weed through. -Christina The daddy and child tees (shown, above)from Little & Large hit my funny bone in the right way. I love the Chip Off the Old Block/Block and Like Father/Like Son...

Baby bloomers for a cause

I have already espoused my love for baby bloomers here on Cool Mom Picks. Their versatility really make them the perfect warm weather baby accessory. But with the adorable baby bloomers from CMP fave Raven & Lily, I just added another reason to my list – supporting an amazing group of women. Unlike anything I’ve ever seen, these beautiful baby bloomers are handmade by female artisans in Africa from repurposed local fabrics. The money they make benefits a co-op which offers assistance and support for these women and their communities. I love them under a dress or tunic, or...

Wardrobe by Jim Henson

I’m not sure how I didn’t know about the Jim Henson store, but I didn’t. And I love Jim Henson, because really, who doesn’t? The guy was in an Apple Think Different ad, for pete’s sake, along with Picasso and Lucille Ball. While parents of a certain age will be more enamored of Fraggle Rock merch than others, what I think are cool are the Jim Hensons designs, featuring multi-colored monsters on iPod cases and tees, including the adorable Feed Me baby onesie. I only wish the site navigation was a little better, which is a shame; if Jim...

Baby sunhats go bohemian

Finding a baby hat I loved was like…well, something that was really hard. For some reason they were always too floppy, too stiff, or too cutesie (seriously, enough with the huge bows at the chin). But Rikshaw Design just nails it with their adorable new baby sunhat. We first discovered this company’s lovely bohemian crib bedding and I’m so glad designer Catherine Fitzsimmons has taken the plunge into clothing and accessories. I love the simple, Indian-inspired unisex patterns like the booti, shown here. The cotton voile is machine washable (yay) and even the thin chin strap on the hat...

Funky + simple + handmade = SOLD.

My very favorite word is cupcake, but I’m also a huge fan of funky, simple, and handmade. Luckily, those are the specialties of Mountain Aven Baby. Well, maybe not the cupcake part. But the other three. We see loads of bibs and blankets, but what makes WAHM-run Mountain Aven Baby special are the eye-catching fabrics and meticulous artistry. We’re not talking clearance cotton from Hancock Fabrics here. Her bibs — many of which are on sale now — are backed with lush chenille and splashed with gorgeous, unusual designs from hedgehogs to vegetables to sock monkeys. The reversible dresses...

Girls clothes from a simpler time. A time without sequins.

I’ve always adored the one-of-a-kind handmade designs from Baby Bean Vintage Daywear, which really let a little girl be a little girl. Albeit a spectacularly dressed one. Talented designer Christine Visneau (also the editor of the wonderful Small Magazine) has created a new spring/summer line that’s just exquisite — click over and get ready to wipe the drool off your screen. The children’s playsuit is like the sweet rompers I used to wear as a kid, and if I still had a baby girl, I’d be putting her in that tank and bloomer set every day this summer.  Older...

Patently cool.

In 2009 in the US, there were over 200,000 patent applications and over four million births. Clearly, we are a very creative country, if you get my meaning. So if you know a one-of-a-kind baby, we’ve got a great gift idea: Celebrate enterprise, ingenuity, and good ol’ snuggly cuteness with a custom Patent Personalized Onesie from CMP fave mitetees. Just give them the birthday of the future Einstein in question, and they’ll send you an adorable onesie or tee up to size 6T proclaiming his or her numerical uniqueness.  And of course you can order them for your own...
