Baby pants made just for all-star crawlers

It was so exciting to watch my daughter learn to crawl–until she bypassed the area rug and face-planted onto the hardwood floor. We used to joke that she needed knee pads, so I’m excited to find Go Little One Go anti-slip crawling pants for babies, just in time for baby number two. The super cute gripping stars cover the knees of these one-size-fits-all bottoms, giving baby some traction and control on slippery surfaces. They’re made from super soft and breathable bamboo fabric–which I really love for its extra coziness–and are designed to stretch and move with baby as she takes off. Plus? So cool looking!  ...

The cutest baby ballet flats. Dare you not to squee.

The days of fabulous heels are gone for this ex-New Yorker. Pregnant or not, I live in cute, comfy flats these days. And although I’m not the matchy-matchy type, expecting a little girl has me thinking about the occasional mommy and me outfit that wouldn’t make 25-year-old me roll my eyes. So when I heard that Linge Shoes, known for their stylish grown-up ballet flats, was coming out with ballet shoes for babies and kids, I leapt at the chance (ha) to check them out. Linge Shoes’ baby ballet flats are made of soft leather, and so colorful and precious they make me want to enroll my daughter in ballet class right now–and...

Winter hats on!

Finding a winter coat for the baby always seems easy, but it can be a challenge to find a hat that is logo, character and cheesy design-free. We came across these delightful, updated-retro styles from Little Sun Hat that I think will do the trick to keep mini noggins warm this winter. The plaid winter hats will have your little ones looking like they just stepped out of a 1950s catalog in the best way possible. Designer Kara Meloy drew inspiration for her new winter collection from her childhood in the Cascade Mountains, focusing on plaids and tweeds, with charmingly classic cuts. The collection is available in three...

Heirloom cashmere for babies so gorgeous, you might never take it out of the box.

It’s no secret we’re fans of gorgeous cashmere, for ourselves and for our kids, even if we do tend to covet it from afar. So imagine our delight when we recently stumbled upon a new cashmere line–this time, just for babies. I know, low points for practicality, but super high points for the irresistible factor, right? Inspired by his love of grey and a couple of cuddly rabbits he discovered in his black & white photo collection, Bob Andrews, the NYC-based founder of Grey Rabbit Baby who has worked for the likes of Ralph Lauren, has created some gorgeous cashmere pieces for newborns that make special gifts for...

Oh Zutano, I have missed you. We have been sized out of your cute baby goodness for a while now, but I’ll have a brand new baby soon and it looks like my timing couldn’t be any better. First in my shopping cart for baby’s winter wardrobe are the adorable color block baby booties with the same fleecy comfort that parents have sworn by for years. My baby is going to be all over these perfect Double Cozy Color Block Baby Booties  for lounging around the house or for running errands.  Uh, that’s me running the errands. The baby will be along for the ride...

Chaboukie: Handmade baby leggings to dye for

Maybe it’s the cooler weather, but we just keep discovering funky leggings your babies and kids should be wearing. Like, stat. And now there’s another. I’ve loved the mom-and-pop owned LA shop Chaboukie for their super cool, edgy designs, and their latest collection of Shibori handmade tie-dye baby leggings is no exception. Named after the centuries-old Japanese method for fabric embellishment (so no, it was not invented by Deadheads) the new line features really special tie-dye baby leggings and matching tank tops for kids up to size 4T.       Shibori‘s philosophy is to attempt to guide the dye as much as possible before ultimately letting it run its own course–much like...

Don’t hate the cold. Love Winter.

The hardest person to keep warm in winter always seems to be the baby–they’re just too small to layer too much, and I hate trying to wrangle them into a coat. So other than layers of baby blankets, I turn to hats, booties, and mittens. This year I’m already obsessing about the Love Winter line of warm winter accessories for toddlers I just discovered from Elks & Angels.     The Love Winter hats, booties, and mittens are each available in almond, pink, or grey Australian sheepskin leather, accented with shearling wool, and they are sooooo soft. Seriously, this is pure luxury for your smallest family members....

Cool, comfy baby leg warmers. What a feeling.

We’ve always been a big fan of BabyLegs for their fun designs and ease of use. I mean, what parent wouldn’t love a pair of baby leg warmers that keep those chubby little legs snug while also making diaper changes a breeze? That’s why we’re excited to share that BabyLegs has launched BabyScoot, a new, even more cushiony version of their adorable baby leg warmers, just in time for cooler weather. Perfect for babies who are just learning to crawl (or army crawl, as my son did for months on end), BabyScoot baby leg warmers have extra thick terry cushioning around the knees to ensure that your little...

Zooties are animal baby booties for your wild little cutie-patootie

Zooties animal baby booties are adorable, if you couldn’t tell. Even more adorable? They have a great story that involves providing work, medical assistance, and education to women in Kyrgyzstan, who hand-craft each pair from sheep wool. And we’re not lion! No matter which critter you select for a toe-tally awesome pair of booties, you’ll know that each pair of sweet critter feet is handmade in small batches, with the wool dyed, spun, felted, and stitched by a women-run collective. Zooties fit babies up to one year old and can be cleaned with a damp cloth. That’s a better deal...

The cutest way ever to get more parents talking to their babies

Want your baby to be smarter? Maybe you’ve seen all the research that says to talk to her. A lot. Especially in those early months and years. And of course you know that – what is parenting these days if not an exercise in reading way too much research from too many experts? Even so, I know that talking to my own babies could get pretty monotonous, so for other parents — or caregivers — who might need a little inspiration from time to time, I think this new, hip line of conversation-starting bodysuits and blankets at TalkReadSing.org are so smart. TalkReadSing is a...

Well, here I go again. After five years of heavy spousal debate we are expecting a brand new bundle of girlie joy this winter. And YES that counts as my big announcement!

Luckily I found a treasure trove right away at Lucky Palm Tree. And if you hurry, some of it is on sale. Which is great. Because I did say luxury.

AXL Brand organic infant clothing: For those who like the baby to shine more than the clothes.

We’re always so excited to find a new designer making stylish, modern clothes for babies and kids, because as we’ve preached for years now, there is more to baby style than appliquéd sequin puppy dogs playing baseball. (Sorry, puppies.) That’s why I’m excited to share my latest discovery, AXL Brand, a new line of simple, but beautifully constructed organic infant clothing out of San Francisco. These pieces are impeccably made in the USA with soft, 100% cotton fabrics, and the styles are modern and clean, with not a single crazy appliqué in sight. In other words, the clothe don’t toddle into the room before the...

Australia’s cutest fair trade, organic baby clothes line now in the States. Yay!

Isn’t it so fun to find a designer who does great modern prints for the kids? As in, not snarky ironic sayings or the same puppies/kitties/fishies we tend to see everywhere? Australian organic baby clothes line Sapling Child has always designed some of my new favorites. But shipping from Down Under? Boo. However this summer they’ve launched their line in the US, so now we can tote our littlest kiddos around in their adorable onesies, pants, and blankets all at pretty terrific prices. Sapling Child’s designs come in a handful of cute styles. I love the kimono onesie for little girls as well as the super-comfy baby pants....

The new Hanna Andersson baby collection is here, renewing our crush on stripes. And Swedes.

For years now, stripes have been a hot trend–on clothes, on bags, on shoes and just about anything that can be striped. So it’s only fitting that the brand new Hanna Anderssson Bright Baby Basics collection launching today is all about stripes, a nod to their Swedish roots. Inspired by the very first Hanna Andersson catalogs and the Swedish tradition of, well, babies wearing stripes, the Bright Baby Basics collection features organic onesies, comfy cotton baby pants and matching accessories in vibrant gender-neutral primary colors, as well as a classic light blue and pink.         Made from...

Cool leggings for babies that help kids in need. (Not just kids in need of leggings.)

When I first laid my eyes on the cool leggings for babies and kids at LA mom and pop-owned Chaboukie, I dug the fun patterns and soft fabrics. But the fact that they’re made by hand here in the USA and help kids in need, well, yeah, it turned into a full-blown crush. Chaboukie is the brainchild of LA parents Leah Piehl and Greg Bertens who wanted cool, well-made leggings with a little more style. So they created their own brand, featuring funky, light fabrics that are super comfy and soft, sized from baby to a 4T toddler (though they seem...

Cool daddy and me shirts for Father’s Day that actually are.

We’re not always fans of the matchy-matchy daddy and me shirts, but if there’s one time that we think it’s pretty fun, it’s Father’s Day. Especially if you’ve got a new kid that just made Daddy a Daddy. So even slight cynics like us love the decidedly non-cutesie selection of clever daddy and me shirts from long-time favorite  shop, Twisted Twee. More quirky than sugary sweet, what I really like is that the two shirt designs are related, but don’t quite match. I’d love to see that lightbulb moment as people see the pair together and figure out how the t-shirts relate to each other, like the...

You need this Pink Power Ranger onesie, especially if the Terror Toad attacks.

Superheroes are big right now, but let’s not forget the Power Rangers, who have kicked their way through 20 television seasons of 17  themed series, not to mention two movies, and all in body-tight Spandex. If you’re worried about Rita Repulsa or the next set of Kaiju, you’ll want a Ranger in the house in this Pink Power Ranger onesie, even if all she can do is waggle her arms and coo. The Pink Ranger has been there since season one, is known for gymnastics moves and empathy, and her 100% cotton costume (complete with tutu) isn’t nearly as revealing as some of the other...

Kardashian Kids baby clothes: Sweeter than you might expect. And more affordable.

You may have heard that he Kardashian sisters—yes, as in Kim, Kourtney and Khloé (don’t forget that accent mark)—have jumped into the celebs-designing-baby-clothes world with Kardashian Kids, a collection just baby girls. And you know what? There’s a surprising lack of glitz here and a whole lot of adorable. We waited to get a look at the line in person and give it a whirl ourselves before we could recommend it, and I must say the quality is quite nice, especially considering everything is under $30. The collection’s color palette is great for spring and even early summer, with plenty...

Tips for leaving baby overnight for the first time. Other than “don’t freak out.”

We’re parents too. We sure know that leaving baby overnight for the first time can be a tough–very tough–decision. But if you’ve got family or close friends near by and willing, it can be an opportunity to catch up on sleep (the gift that keeps on giving when you’re a new parent), to spend some much-needed time with your partner, or take advantage of an important business trip. And don’t forget, it also gives some loving family members the chance to bond with the baby too. Of course, it all comes down to if and when you feel comfortable leaving...

Baby trend alert: Gray and white as a chic, gender neutral baby palette

More and more, we’re seeing a move away from yellow for “surprise” babies, and toward beautiful heather grays and rich charcoals. Paired with white, it’s a little less severe than black and can be and incredibly stylish on either a boy or a girl. Plus, you can pair this gender neutral palette with accessories of any color, should you want a pale pink blanket, for example, to tip off admirers that that bald little baby head does, in fact, belong to a girl. On behalf of our partner Nordstrom, and their Little Me collection of very affordable baby basics,...

How to make diaper changes easier? Just Zipit.

I’m continually amazed at the advances in baby gear since I had my youngest three years ago. And this Zipit playsuit for babies are a perfect example of the genius I totally missed out on. Not only do I love the bold colors, I’m digging how the ankle to chest zipper makes it a cinch to change a diaper. If you’re like I was, with a very active baby and early walker, you know how annoying even simple snaps can be. Don’t even start on buttons. Just a quick zip with this playsuit though, and you’re done. Even better, there’s a...

You guys can see the Snuffleupagus, too, right?

I still remember how frustrating it was when the adults on Sesame Street couldn’t see fuzzy, lovable Snuffy, and Big Bird always got in trouble for whatever trouble that big, clumsy critter caused.
