Baby socks that stay up? We found them!

It’s a small #firstworldproblem as far as parenting goes, but baby socks that don’t stay up are one of my pet peeves. Maybe it’s the fact that I’ve spent more money than I care to admit on tiny pairs of socks the last two years, but it just sucks when one sock goes missing or sometimes, when both mysteriously disappear. Knowing that I’ll never be as organized as I want to be, and that I’ll never get my two-year-old and four-month-old to cease pulling or kicking off their already-loose socks, imagine my delight to discover Little Grippers socks, a UK brand that specializes...

Getting back to basics. Affordable, lovely basics.

While I’m all for buying a few special items for my kids, like a crazy pair of polka-dot Doc Martens or some fun fuzzy vest they’re coveting, mostly their wardrobes consist of affordable basics that can mix or match with the rest. Like, 20 different pairs of black leggings. Which is why the new kids label, Primary, is the kind that will make parents ask, “where have you been all my life?!” Or at least all your kids’ lives. If they’re about ten and under. – Don’t miss a fantastic offer exclusively for CMP readers below –  The goal of...

A sweetly affordable new layette collection from none other than Skip Hop. (What took them so long?)

There’s a reason why Skip Hop is a favorite brand of modern parents. Their ability to create playful and adorable items for babies that aren’t so, well, babyish is what made me a longtime fan, from their nursery decor and crib bedding to their ever popular diaper bags. That’s why I was super stoked to learn about the launch of the Skip Hop Modern Baby Basics layette collection. I wouldn’t call any of the pieces revolutionary, but I like everything I see — and feel. Sometimes the cutest baby outfits are like cardboard, but the new Skip Hop layette collection is made from the softest cotton, even though...

The hottest shoes for babies this spring? Lizard, dahling.

It isn’t quite what you might imagine when you think of lizard shoes, of course. But when I stumbled on the leather lizard baby moccasins from Little House in the Orchard, I couldn’t help but smile. They’re beautifully handmade from ankle to uh, claws? I love the bright green, and details like the contrasting inner fabric and comfy elastic bands to keep them on. The leather soles makes them great for both indoor play and scampering around outside as the weather warms up.

Goumikids newborn hats, mittens and booties: Designed to actually stay on.

Let’s be real, parents. Amid the cry-fests and all-night burp-a-thons, it would be tough to remember a single thing about those early months, if it weren’t for the photos we take and look back on later. (“Oh right! We went to Florida for a week…totally forgot.”). That’s why ridiculously cute baby accessories have a special place in my heart, and hey, they can even give us sleep-deprived parents that squee when we need it most. From Goumikids, the same geniuses who brought us those soft, stay-put baby mitts and baby booties that have become a Cool Mom Picks favorite, they’ve just launched adorable Goumikids hats that, like their other accessories, are more...

The Valentine’s gift for the baby who stole your heart

It’s coming up on Valentine’s Day, which means it’s the time we start looking for cute Valentine’s gifts for babies that don’t make our teeth hurt from the sweetness. One of my favorite fallback recommendations is the personalized heart tattoo onesie, and this one from Psychobaby is just perfect. Instead of arguing whether it should say mom or dad, it’s personalized with your own child’s name–or nickname. I think it would be pretty cool if his name was Bruiser or something. The shop also features blankets, hats and bibs with the same design in red or pink. All complete with the...

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...
