Well okay, we can talk about it. But for those of us not old enough to talk, we can proclaim our affiliation with these new Junior Daredevil Stroller Club onesies. If your darling bundle of joy is a reincarnation of Evel Kneivel, we’ve found the baby onesie for you from longtime CMP favorite shop Wry Baby. This adorable hipster-cool snapsuit is made of 100% cotton and available in size 0-6M and 6-12M. As for the second rule of Junior Daredevil Stroller Club? We torment our parents by crawling up the crib slats, rejecting naptime, yearning for ladders, and trying...Read More

When I saw this amazing DIY kit at Bundle, it screamed “sibling gift” so loud at me I almost considered having another baby just so my kids would have a reason to make one. Truly, this is one of the coolest ideas I’ve ever come across. If you’re looking for a completely unique and utterly amazing sibling gift for your new baby, then you absolutely must see the Design Your Own Romper and Hat kit, which allows you to take your kids’ artwork and turn it into a baby outfit. The kit itself comes complete with written and DVD...Read More
If you’re looking for a sweet Valentines gift for a baby too young for chocolate bonbons, here’s a totally adorable idea. I’ve been a fan of Trumpette socks ever since I got a set for my own baby and realized they were the only socks that actually stayed on–while still looking adorable. Ever since then, they’ve been one of my favorite go-to baby shower gifts. And now I’m adding these Valentine Pixie socks to the list of possibilities. The gold is actually a lot more subtle in person than in the photo, and they’d look cute year round. But...Read More
When my first daughter was born, I had absolutely no idea that babies scratched themselves (oops!), so I found myself putting socks on her hands to protect her face. Brilliant for about two minutes until they’d fall right off. Too bad they didn’t have these adorable baby mittens back then. I’m grabbing a pair of guavamitts for all my pregnant friends because they’re the handiest little invention I’ve seen in a long time. The cool, modern prints (on both sides!) combined with the bamboo and organic cotton fabric make them super soft and comfy for newborns, plus the velcro...Read More
Kid (and baby) sunglasses are usually one of those things that are terribly cute in theory but not always so great in practice. They’re often slippy, stomped, and broken within, like, minutes. So these new sunglasses for kids are worth their weight in sunscreen. If you’re looking for a cool little gift before some family travel to warmer climes this season, definitely check out the new Scream sunglasses by Eyes Cream Shades. They’re everything you want kids’ sunglasses to be: they stay on (without that wraparound head strap thing that so many kid glasses have), their lenses are polycarbonate...Read More
I feel like, every fall, I end up on on a mission to find handmade sweaters and other goodies that have that little extra bit of TLC knitted in. You know, like someone made them just for my kids Robbie Carmack of RCforkids is pretty much that someone. Her sweaters are the picture of vintage sweetness: just check out this kitten cardigan (can you stand how cute that cat button nestled in a fabric flower is?) and this crochet poncho in mohair yarn. What’s especially cool is that Carmack (whose granddaughter models the clothes on her site!) makes her gorgeous pieces from...Read More
So here’s some fun news: We’re so excited to be this week’s guest bloggers at the Lucky Kids site this week! We’ve put together 5 picks for a handmade holiday, featuring 5 fabulous handmade items that we’re crushing on hard. Click over to the Lucky Kids blog for all the details. (And man, if they only made those baby booties in our size…) By the way, if you pick up a copy of Lucky Kids Magazine at the newsstand this month, you’ll not only get a ton of inspired holiday ideas, you just might recognize a feature on a...Read More
Let’s face it: If Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter had twins, they would look just like this, and Johnny Depp would give them a set of onesies like this at their Beetlejuice-themed baby shower. The Skeleton Love Kids organic shirt from Mimosa is based on an illustration by Holly Cruise and offers twice the charm of shirts featuring a single skeleton–and that’s a guarantee. Two happy little skeletons share a flaming heart while frolicking under a banner of hearts carried by two flying crows. In short, it’s perfectly spooktacular and adorkably hip, just in time for Halloween. But...Read More
Ask my mom, and she’ll tell you that she knew I was a writer from the moment I was born, or at least from the moment I started scrawling my first story on the wall in… um… nevermind. Too bad they didn’t have this onesie back then. The utterly adorable The Writer Onesie is a must-have for anyone who writes or reads or loves the written word or just has a thing for old-fashioned typewriters. Whether you like the gender-neutral yellow or the pink on pink, each organic cotton onesie by All Good Living features a printed typewriter...Read More
One of the best things about having a baby is knowing how loved she is by so many people, even before drawing her first breath. Gifts that express that very sentiment just might be my favorite. Another thing I love: this organic baby gift set put together by two of our favorite small brands. Whether you’re having a boy, girl, or an “I’ll find out soon enough,” your baby will look sweet in the organic “Loved” lap tee from Barley + Birch, plus an adorable heart teether from Little Alouette. Best, it’s all for just $35. Sweet. –Liz Find...Read More
I never understood why 90% of baby clothes are either pastel pink or little boy blue. Don’t babies have the right to exercise their fashion sense as much as the rest of us? [don’t miss a fabulous giveaway after the jump!] We fell in love with ridiculously soft baby clothes from Paige Lauren Baby a while ago and we knew she had an eye for color when she came out with her new candy-colored summer collection. But her new fall threads prove that she’s onto something new in the baby clothing department. The new autumn/winter collection of baby clothes...Read More
I’m all about finding ways to make life easier, especially when there’s a newborn at home. To that end, we raved about the clever designs from Magnificent Baby when it first launched. The magnetic closure baby clothes make getting baby dressed a zillion times easier than snaps or buttons. And now they’ve teamed up with one of our favorite mom websites (no, not us!) for a brand new design that’s just too cute. Magnificent Baby and A-List Mom founder Elina Furman put their minds together and designed the adorable Elephants on Parade fall collection. It’s the same thoughtful sleepwear...Read More
This post is brought to you by our sponsor, Up All Night, the new NBC show starring some of the coolest and funniest parents on TV like Christina Applegate, Will Arnett, and Maya Rudolph. When I was pregnant with my first daughter almost 8 years ago, I remember being completely underwhelmed by the sea of cutesy animal patterns and pastel baby decor, neither of which were anywhere near my personal style. But these days, you don’t have to sacrifice your taste because you had a baby. Here’s some of the coolest rock n’ roll baby gear around, that will...Read More
It must be hard to come up with new twists on old baby gear, like sleep sacks, but it seems there’s always a smart mom out there ready to devise a brilliant improvement. And if there is, we’re going to find her. Or in the case of the Gunapod wearable blanket, three moms. This soft and cozy fleece baby sleep sack –which is available in three sizes ranging from 3 to 24 months– isn’t just another adorable wearable blanket. That’s because the mama creators behind the blanket know a thing or two about middle-of-the-night diaper changes and sleeping-baby-transfers. Their experience is our gain....Read More
Not every baby comes into this world as soon as its parents expect it to. Some of them are years in the making. And for those special little ones, I think this onesie is a pretty darn cute baby gift. The Worth the Wait babysuit and hat set includes simple cotton basics with a sweet message (“I was worth the wait”) that would be perfect for all kinds of new parents, including families who have overcome infertility and families who have adopted. Oddly the hat–which is a 12-24 month size–s much larger than the onesie -which comes in 3-6...Read More
Superheroes are so summer 2011–Thor, Xmen, Green Lantern, Captain America have all made the rounds at the movies. It’s only a matter of time before my favorite caped crusader gets her day in the sun. This Wonder Woman onesie is the perfect outfit for your delicious baby girl. It is a way to announce her gender without dousing her in pink and ruffles. Sure, clueless octogenarians may not get the reference, but when they say “what a cute little boy,” you can sigh and say “yup, she’s my wonder woman all right.” Girl Power! -Eva The Wonder Woman onesie...Read More
If you don’t yet know how awesome BabyLegs are, we’re happy to remind you every few months or so. They not only respect the accessibility of the onesie and keep little legs warm in heavily air conditioned places, but diaper changes are a breeze. Now we’ve got one more reason to love them: The all new Hello Kitty collection. The Hello Kitty BabyLegs are not only cute and sweet, but practical, too. Any of the seven styles will funky up any outfit, but without interfering with the business at hand. You know, the free wheeling crawling kind. Plus she...Read More
We all know socks and sandals together are a big no-no in civilized society, but there are exceptions. Jazzy Toes, the clever people who bring us some of the cutest baby shoe sock designs, have come up with a new design just in time for summer- the flip flop sock. Necessary? No. Cute as a button? Yes. These ultra cutesy accessories are a conversation piece for sure but will also keep your wee one’s tootsies cozy in over-air conditioned places through the summer months. Bottom line- if you have a friend expecting a baby girl this summer, show up...Read More
Recently I attended a Brooklyn mommy event and discovered one local indie kids clothing designer whose pieces were being oohed and ahhed over by eager parents. I suppose the innocent 1930s, ’40s and ’50s paper doll-inspired clothes were such a refreshingly far cry from the edgy Brooklyn fare we’re used to seeing. The designs from mom-run Dressing Em are not cheap but they are lovely–think romantic floral dresses, tailored pinafores, and 40’s era high-waisted sailor pants with accents like grosgrain ribbon trim and flower buttons. The original designs are all conceived and manufactured right in New York. I’ll be...Read More
At this point, it’s not news that Target is spot-on in the designer collaboration department. They seem to keep churning out awesome new collection after awesome new collection with the hottest kid brands around. And now it’s Appaman’s turn. Hooray! Appaman, the beloved Brooklyn-based brand with the fun-loving mascot ape is partnering with Baby Buggy for their foray into Target-world. The Appaman for Target collection is the final collection in the partnership between the retailer and Jessica Seinfeld’s charity. The collection includes adorable onesies, ruffled tank tops with bubble shorts, and polos with matching pants, many adorned with the...Read More
For a gift that will definitely inspire some “awwwws” at baby showers, we’ve found that very thing. Or rather, we’ve found 120 of those very things on our recently launched Baby Shower Gift Guide. But now, we’ve found one more. (Don’t miss a great giveaway after the jump!) The Birdhouse Pajamas gift set is a sweet cardboard birdhouse decorated with trees and flowers, but that’s not all. Inside the house is a pair of cute baby pajamas and an adorable bird stuffed animal. A gift, wrapped in a gift. All for under $25. With such cute packaging, the pajamas...Read More
Our kids may never debate the merits of Betty vs. Veronica or laugh at Jughead’s ability to gulp down hamburgers. But you still have to admit that this crown-style hat hearkens back to the golden days of Archie, before all comic book characters either had creepy muscles or overly-huge eyes. And you have to admit that it rocks. Lovingly dubbed The Royal by Etsy seller TipsyToesKnits of Halifax, Canada, this adorable crown is available in a wide range of colors and would be the perfect topper for you favorite prince or princess. Simply choose a size from newborn to...Read More
I couldn’t even begin to count the number of times I’ve mis-snapped my baby’s onesies and sleepers during a middle of the night diaper change. Heck, I’ve even done it during the day. And now, since finding Magnificent Baby, I’m seriously considering tossing them all out. This company has designed something rather smart: magnetic closure baby clothes which pop together (and stay together) like magic, eliminating mismatches and the annoying tugging at the too-tight snaps. Believe me, I was pretty skeptical at first, and sizing is definitely important; my long baby needed a size up since their onesies do...Read More
We drop the word “cute” a lot, mainly because it’s so versatile. Teeny tiny onesies? Cute. Gorgeous handmade jewelry? Cute. Sweet stationary? Cute. The guy who washed my hair this morning at the salon? Cute. But it’s also refreshing when we find objets de baby that aren’t exactly cute. [don’t miss a great giveaway and amazing sale after the jump!] The Hollywood Renaissance collection by PAIGELAUREN baby is gorgeous, dreamy, snuggly, and luxe– but maybe not so much cute. Well, until you put it on the baby. This label first caught our eye with their trademark pastels and dreamy...Read More
Of the many talents I wished I possessed, crocheting is at the top of the list, right along with singing in key and being able to sketch something other than stick figures. Since I don’t expect to inherit any of those talents any time soon, I look to outside sources for my fix. Which is why I was thrilled to discover a beautiful hand crocheted baby gift set. Personally, I can’t think of anything sweeter–and more classic–for a baby gift than something crocheted. Loralin Design owner Lynne Buchman designs this Booties and Hat Gift Set herself and then has...Read More
I love it when a cool designer creates a less expensive line for the masses. I’ve swooned over the adorable styles and appealing price tags of the Stella McCartney for Gap Kids and Baby and Splendid Littles for Target lines; and now I can add Hooray by Cynthia Rowley to the list. Rowley’s collection of baby and toddler clothing and accessories, designed exclusively for Babies R Us, does in fact make me want to do a little cheer. The spring 2011 offerings from Hooray, which just hit Babies “R” Us stores yesterday, feaures a line of cute clothes for...Read More
My daughter is a bit of a choosy dresser. To say the least. If I’m being perfectly honest, it takes at least half an hour to get her ready every morning and she balks–nay, tantrums for an hour–if anything she’s wearing is even slightly unacceptable. You know, like if it’s anything but that gaudy, sparkly, too-small tank top her Nana gave her. Given her pickiness, her temper, and her penchant for wearing summer clothes in the middle of a Canadian winter, you can imagine my relief when I pulled out the stunning capelet sample from Patouche and she asked...Read More
This might be the most exciting thing for my son’s wardrobe since Stella McCartney’s first collection for BabyGap: Splendid Littles, the brand known for comfy chic clothes for babies and toddlers is hopping on the Target train and I couldn’t be happier. The adorable becomes the affordable on December 26th, when the first Splendid Littles limited edition collection arrives in Target stores and on Target.com. I, for one, will have my plastic at the ready to get in on the sporty striped hoodies, slouchy cargo pants and layered polo shirts in cool shades like heather gray, tomato red and...Read More
Before we had babies, we decided that what our house needed was stained concrete floors. Slippery-as-heck concrete floors, as we found out after we had babies, are not exactly the easiest place for them to learn to crawl. We ended up investing in a lot of rugs. So I find the idea behind these non-skid play pants totally ingenious. The brainchildren of mom-to-three Amy Shoaff of Dot Dot Couture, these 100% cotton non-skid play pants are pants with traction. Adorable traction. Check out the designs on the knees: retro cars (the cutest one), giraffes, hearts, dragons. Each design is...Read More
Having just welcomed a new baby boy into our fold (well, it feels like “just”–how did we already high five the seven-month marker?), I’m constantly aware of how many onesies, sleepers, and rompers a baby can inherit. Bags. And bags. And bags of cute baby clothes. But in looking through all of these (well-loved, so appreciated, and totally adorable! Mean it!) clothes, I can tell you that there isn’t even one little shirt among them that was made for the purpose of stimulating infants’ vision. I can also tell you that I never really thought that one might exist. Or...Read More
