What snow? Think swim! Tea Collection debuts girls’ swimwear line

Despite the current snowpocalypse conditions on the East Coast, groundhogs across the country insist that warm weather is just around the corner. (We think they had something to do with the storm being named Nemo.) So we’ve decided to think positive and dream of sunny days ahead–not hard to do when we spotted the new Spring 2013 line of little girls’ swimwear from CMP fave Tea Collection. Here’s a first look at the new swimsuits that will have you wishing for warmer climes and times. As a kid, I was fortunate enough to spend a few years in gorgeous, colorful South Africa....

Gorgeous spring clothes for kids that keep my mind off today’s windchill.

Nununu is a baby and kids label I recently discovered, and instantly fell for. (My daughter owns this alphabet dress in grey, and it’s the best.) The construction is amazing, the cottons are soft but sturdy and I really love the styling for little girls which is a little edgy and a lot playful. We’re so excited to get to give you all sneak peek at their upcoming spring line launching in a few weeks because…gah. The cuteness! Above: Cotton galabiya. Here, Skull a-line dress Patch tee and dyed skirt Sprinkles playsuit Patch tee and french terry shorts NO! tee...

Twin sets for babies we love. Because roses are red, onesies are…mustard?

If pink and red are a little too sweet for your taste on Valentine’s Day, try some mustard. As in, these gorgeous mustard and cream organic onesies that feature a hip, understated version of hearts and arrows. So cute for twins! Or a singleton who likes options. The Baby Heart and Arrows Gift Set from eleventyfive on Etsy (don’t you love that name?) is an adorable way to celebrate Valentine’s Day that’s not too cutesy and totally wearable year-round. The set of two 100% organic cotton onesies is hand-printed in Austin, TX using environmentally friendly inks and available up...

Don’t miss this huge sale at one of our favorite baby boutiques

We love finding cool, unique baby boutiques, especially ones owned by moms (and their moms). The downside is that sometimes these amazing shops close as the owners move onto other endeavors, which is the case with Bean New York.  The upside, however, is that they’re offering 50% off everything in the store, from gorgeous layettes to special occasion dresses, and all sorts of beautiful items for babies in between. Here are some of our favorites, but act fast! At these prices, they won’t last long. {Don’t miss our picks at these amazing prices after the jump} The beautiful knitted swing...

Kiss your feet? Don’t mind if I do.

The only thing cuter than adorable baby feet is adorable baby feet wearing sweet little baby booties. And if you’re planning some Valentine’s Day photo ops, we’ve got the shoes for you. These lovely little Valentines Baby Booties from Good Wishes Quilts on Etsy are cozy and fleecy and ideal for keeping sweet baby feet cozy warm if they’re smaller than 6 months. Each pair is hand-made in red felt and hand-embroidered with a Valentine-appropriate X and 0, but you can also buy them with hearts or snowflakes.  Once your baby’s outgrown them and moved on to big kid...

Snuggly Scandinavian fleece hats for little ears

It’s getting cold outside for many of us–which means it’s time to get back to the challenge of keeping our kids toasty warm. I don’t know about you, but both of my children are absurdly picky when it comes to winter hats–if a hat is the slightest bit scratchy, forget about it.  So every year I’m on the hunt for the softest, fleeciest caps out there. Swedish brand Geggamoja (which means “messy, muddy play”) offers designs that fit the bill perfectly. Geggamoja creates adorably awesome fleece hats and caps that are the perfect anti-itch solution to keeping your wee ones warm...

Can you tell me how to get…a really cool Sesame Street shirt? (Yup.)

CMP has long adored Kiwi Industries for its super soft, US-made organic kids’ clothing–and we’ve always been partial adorable line of Sesame Street characters. So how excited are we to learn they’ve now given Elmo–and our kids!–some new friends to play with? {Keep reading for an exclusive discount for our readers!} Kiwi Industries‘ interpretations of the Sesame Street characters are awesome: they’re vibrant, artsy-abstract yet totally recognizable. Here’s proof: my addicted-to-Cookie-Monster two-year-old went nuts when I showed him the new Cookie Monster sweater (pictured). And then he asked for an actual cookie…but that’s beside the point. Like before, there’s still a lovable...

Got an awesome idea for a kid’s t-shirt? It could win you $5,000.

Think you can do better than “diva,” “boob man,” or the ever popular “my dad can beat up your dad?” Of course you can. And Threadless and Gap think so too. Which is why in their continued partnership, they’ve just introduced a contest for your kid–or maybe even you–to create the most awesome kids’ t-shirt design. The Gap Kids/Threadless T-shirt Design Challenge is pretty simple: think of  a wonderful, glorious, joyful design for a baby or child’s t-shirt and the winner will not only be sold at Threadless and Gap, you’ll win $5,000. I love the idea of them...

Our favorite fall baby clothes from Zutano

Don’t miss an exclusive discount just for Cool Mom Picks readers, below! We can’t help but get nostalgic seeing the wonderful new fall baby fashions for Zutano, since all of our older kids, now too big too fit them, wore so many of their amazing designs which were then passed to their lucky siblings. We’re so thrilled to welcome them back as a sponsor (whoo!), though picking our favorites from their new line is making us a little jealous of all of you with wee ones to dress. Whether you’re putting together a layette for your own baby or...

Oh, plus a chance to win a $100 shopping spree.

Possibly the world’s cutest baby shoes ever. If you like elephants.

When my daughter was a toddler, she suffered from a malady we called “foot claustrophobia”. Wrangling a pair of shoes onto that squirming, hyperventilating child was an exercise in futility, until we found a pair that had a high “distraction” factor–a butterfly sewn on the shoe, right where she could see it. Much as it helped, that insect wasn’t even close to the cuteness level of these. The new pink/red Baby Elephant shoes from longtime CMP fave Livie and Luca are a bright fresh take on their popular Brown Elephants. These sassy pachyderms will steal your child’s heart (and...

The baby girl gift that warrants an extra-nice thank you note

My favorite baby girl outfits were ones that could be worn for a fun little playdate or a special day out with just a simple change of shoes. And that’s exactly why I love this adorable tunic and leggings combo from Cool Mom Picks fave Bean New York. [don’t miss a limited time discount for CMP readers after the jump NOW EXTENDED] Maybe because it reminds me of what I brought all my kids home in; but this simple, beautiful, pebble knitted swing baby tunic and leggings outfit is the perfect addition to any little one’s fall wardrobe and a...

Plush and pillows with the perfect sense of humor

As a professional decorator, one of my favorite spaces to take on is a kid’s room. You can go as creative and whimsical as you want; where else could I use every color in the rainbow and indulge in prints that are easily deemed “funny?” Now there’s an Etsy shop I’m so happy to have discovered for those very reasons. When I first saw these pillows from Coucou Salut, I immediately thought of several places that I would use them in my own home.  Everything  at the shop is 100% illustrated, designed, printed and sewn by one talented pair...

PunyPixel – small clothes, big ideas

I’ve just found a new brand that has everything I love…eye popping designs, a charity component, and organic cotton. The only drawback: it’s only for kids. The designs at PunyPixel are admittedly quirky, but I think they’re cool. The line features four culturally diverse characters, like Mike, above. Each one has his or her own unique look and style. If you’re feeling spacey, I would go with Leo. If you’re feeling like all of your chakras are in alignment, Sid is your girl. PunyPixel supports charities that they have a real connection with, and they rotate every couple of...

City Threads goes baby

City Threads is a great little clothing company that I’ve raved about before. You can recognize their “Brooklyn” bucket hats on many a hipster kid at the nearest playground in my (nowhere near Brooklyn) neighborhood. Now they are finally veering into the baby clothing world and all I can say is… what took you so long? The baby onesies are made of the same comfy, durable cotton I love on their big kid stuff. The patterns are simple but fun, for babies who don’t need a lot of work to convince the world that they’re cute. Plus, they are...

Say chubby baby

In some neighborhoods, where feeding a baby a single french fry will earn you the disdain of onlooking parents everywhere (would I know of such a thing?) my anti-authority side is loving a line of vaguely irreverent baby and kids clothes that walks right into the realities of our fast food nation. [don’t miss a great discount AND a giveaway after the jump!] How can you not smile at the poppy colors and bold full-color photos of the Eat ‘Em Up Collection from our friends at Psychobaby? From baby tees and flip-flops to to baby bibs (my favorite) I...

Baby bloomers nearly as cute that little butt they’re covering

One of the essentials in my girls’ summer wardrobe when they were babies were bloomers. It was so easy to just toss a cute pair over a diaper, add a little tunic or tee, and we were off. I love the selection of high quality cotton baby bloomers at family-run Kicky Pants, which have the cutest little ruffle detail on the back–just enough to make a statement but not so much that the kid’s butt looks like a wedding cake. (Trust me, we’ve seen plenty of those.) They come in 9 sweet colors including a fun lime green which is now...

Dress your baby in Marimekko

How merry does Marimekko make us? When it’s in the form of this vibrant bodysuit, it makes us very, very merry indeed. These sweet Marimekko onesies at Always Mod feature original Finnish Marimekko designs. And that’s Marimekko with a capital M– the real, original deal designed by artist Maija Isola in the 1960s. They’re bright, hip, mod, and available in three color schemes, all in a cozy and stretchy cotton blend. Do note that they’re all long sleeved– but maybe they’ll come up with some short sleeved or sleeveless ones, if we beg a little? They’re a little pricey,...

New baby girl clothes from Oh Joy and Winter Water Factory–we’re in love!

If you’re a design blog fan, you are surely familiar with the fabulous Joy Deangdeelert Cho of Oh Joy. This graphic designer, mega blogger, and food enthusiast has done it all from designing her own wallpaper to co-writing a book. And now she can cross children’s clothing designer off the list, thanks to a collaboration with one of Cool Mom Picks’ favorite indie labels. Joy has teamed up with Winter Water Factory and if you take a look at the new Oh Joy collection you will find adorable rompers and baby dresses from 3-24 months.  Each style features Joy’s...

Swirls for baby girls (and baby boys)

If you have a baby girl, you’re probably up to your ears in pastel pink. Not that there’s anything wrong with pink–I love pink!–it’s just that change might be nice. The same goes for baby boys, in reverse (kind of). Does your little guy really need another navy tee with a car on it? [don’t miss a limited time discount after the jump] That’s why I’m enamored with sweet swirly prints from Little Giraffe. The Soleil Pocket Onesies are everything a baby’s onesie should be: supersoft cotton in sweet muted colors that go a different direction than the typical pastel...

Pink and blue layette essentials that are cuter than those other pink and blue layettes

Pink and blue can feel like such generic colors for a baby layette. But when it is done right, it not only looks great, but let’s be honest, it does help a new mom avoid those awkward comments about “what a beautiful baby boy!” when what she’s really got in the stroller is a little girl without any hair. If you’re a fan of the traditional layette color route, Oilo has come to the rescue. Their soft, organic layette is available in a baby blue and a super sweet pink. But instead of the usual gingham, the print is...

How do hoodie bath towels for kids get better? It’s a snap.

Standard hoodie bath towels for kids seem to have one major drawback: they slip off. Once you let your damp toddler loose, there’s no way that towel’s staying on that newly clean little head. [don’t miss an exclusive limited time discount after the jump!] So the new Bella Bundles collection of hoodie towels is really nothing short of magic.   In addition to being soft, plush, and super-absorbent, the towels come with a key ingredient to stay-on-age: a snap a few inches under the chin. Brilliant. The towels stay on!  Plus, they’re available in some of the coolest prints...

Flower power!

I admit that I’m not much of a floral person when it comes to clothes–a bit of a challenge considering I’ve got three girls to dress in a season where flowers are the hottest thing next to neon. However, when I caught a peek at this adorable one piece by CMP fave Kicky Pants, I realized that maybe it’s not so much that I don’t like flowers, but rather that I hadn’t found the right ones. [don’t miss a big exclusive discount after the jump!] The Kicky Pants Hydrangea coverall at CMP fave Cattiwampus features one of my favorite...

Insanely soft leggings for little crawlers

My one-year-old is a lightning fast crawler and he has the dirty knees to prove it. So I’m a big fan of baby leggings for more than mere fashion, especially when they’re as uber-soft as this new option. The new Leggies Legwarmers from Little Giraffe are made with the same kind of silky yarn that’s in their famous plush toys. So when I put them on my son, I know his legs are swathed in comfort. And cuteness. Of course. Plus, for you new moms who haven’t let discovered the joys of baby legwarmers, it’s great to just let...

There are pop-up books for kids. Why not pop-up clothing?

Who doesn’t love an old fashioned pop up book? For Jane of the Etsy shop Little Blue Frogs, her childhood love of pop up books resurfaced when she had kids of her own, and lucky for us, her fascination resulted in a crafty and completely adorable collection of Pop Up t-shirts for baby.  Nature-loving parents can choose from designs like puffy clouds and sun or a leaf and ladybug while hipsters can indulge in the retro record album and music note combo. I personally can’t decide which one I like best, but even this music lover finds the cloud...

The cutest baby beanies ever. Or maybe the second cutest…

As a mom, I remember my babies living in the classic white onesie, which is an easy piece to pair with pops of color. So I always appreciate finding beanies for babies that have lots of personality and vibrancy. These brand new handmade earflap baby beanies from get your craft on! SHOP are adorable! Just about as adorable as the mom tattoo baby beanie we love so much, that’s featured right up top in our baby shower gift guide this year.                                 The hats come in a variety of colors and sizes, with a great pop art sensibility, and...

Baby feet, you’ve got the cutest little baby feet…

For some reason, every pregnant friend in my life is having a boy these days. So I’m even more attuned to the limited choice there is in terms of motifs on their clothing. While we’ve worked pretty hard to track down cool boys’ clothes that go beyond appliques of bears or crossed hockey sticks or clip art dump trucks, I’m so happy to find one more shop that gets it. At Tilly Whistle, you’ll find adorably handmade shoes for baby girls (I love these felted baby mary janes) but boys are not left here for a change. There’s a...

Our favorite baby basics for spring from Zutano

We’ve been huge fans of Zutano‘s durable, mix-and-match baby clothes going way back to when our own firstborns were living them–and we have the pictures to prove it. The spring line is so adorable that we even featured one of the outfits on Martha Stewart’s Baby Shower show last month. So when Zutano asked if we’d pick out some of our favorites from their new collection to share, we were like…where do we start? If you’re putting together a layette for your new baby, or you’re stocking up on shower gifts for the season, here are just few fabulous...

Diane von Furstenberg for GapKids launches today, and we swoon

I love having two yummy little boys, really I do. But it’s times like this–when I hear that design icon Diane von Furstenberg is creating a girls-only collection for GapKids and babyGap–that I get a little envious of moms with daughters. [get a look at some of our favorite new DVF looks after the jump!] The DVF + GapKids and babyGap collection hits stores and online today. Not since Stella McCartney’s line with the retailer has there been such excitement about a collaboration. And with good reason. The mini-me prints and outfits take you into cuteness overload.

The new Petunia Pickle Bottom layette is here. Just in time for spring!

Our youngest will be in preschool this fall, and I don’t miss the diapering–but I will admit to a moment (or two) of weakness when I saw the brand new spring layette for babies 0-9 months by mom-favorite brand Petunia Picklebottom. First amazing bags, then Ergo baby carriers, then iPhone covers–and now clothing. Makes sense to me. Why shouldn’t the company with some of the most beautiful textiles start making some of the most adorable spring outfits ever? Here, some of my favorites: [get a glimpse at the gorgeous new designs after the jump!] I love the fact that...
