The baby gift that makes the ovaries hurt. Thanks a lot, Marie Chantal.

I am done with having babies. For real. But I have to admit, when I come across something as utterly delicious as this velour angel wing snapsuit from luxury kids label Marie-Chantal, it does give me pause. But no. NO. I’m standing firm here. All I need is a good friend who I can justify buying this insanely adorable one-piece for. Not only is it beyond lovely in white, blue or pale pink, and soft as a baby lamb wrapped in cashmere swaddled in cotton balls, the angel wings baby coverall comes spectacularly presented in a beautiful little keepsake...

The bling-free baby track suit. Yes, it exists.

We’re already completely smitten with the offerings from Westcoast Baby, so when we heard that this two-mom team added track suit sets in toddler sizes (woo!), we couldn’t wait to take a look. Created with their signature soft stretch cotton jersey and manufactured in Canada, these casual play clothes are perfect for every season. And no big crazy logos or gratuitous hardware. Wear the hoodie with jeans, or pair the comfy track pants with a bright summer tank– the bold gender neutral colors make them perfect for girls or boys. Just not grown-ups. Darn. -KristenFind beautiful baby clothes and layette options...

Pink baby clothes even I can adore

With my newest daughter’s wardrobe full of gender neutral green and yellow hand me downs, I’m always on the look out for adorable pink baby clothes, preferably clothes that aren’t covered in cupcakes and rainbows. Nothing against either of those things, but the layers of sugary cuteness can get to be a bit much. So that’s why I’m digging the pink elephant onesie by Smafolk found at Pajama Squid. The Danish-based kids’ clothes designer combines unique retro prints and bright fabrics which results in a cool look that says “girl” without going overboard on the girlie. And for $15 (hurry, it’s on...

All you need is love

I made the mistake of not purchasing “holiday” themed clothing for my daughter and I heard all about it, thanks to all her friends dressed in pumpkin and snowman covered t-shirts. So, with Valentine’s Day around the corner, I’m not going to make the same mistake– except I’m playing by my own rules and snatching up a kids’ Recycle Love shirt from CMP fave Tiny Revolutionary. Along with the super cool message, the shirt is made of 100% recycled cotton and printed with safe water-based inks. And instead of being limited to a two week wearing window, she can...

I like cute booties and I cannot lie

You know what a baby can never have too much of? Okay. Sleep. Right, you got me. But other than sleep, and poops that smell like roses? How about baby booties? Well in our house, the answer would be yes, considering I can’t keep track of all the teeny baby socks. So, baby booties, like these adorable linen chick baby shoes by Lotta Jansdotter and found at lovely shop Open House, would be perfect. Pair them with the matching bib and you’ve got the perfect newborn gift. Or a “wow I can’t believe she’s four months already” gift. Ahem....

Happy Niu Year!

Today is the official start of the Year of the Ox (Niu in Chinese), and if you’re into Chinese Zodiac, you’ll know that good things are predicted to come. Especially if you’ve got your own little Ox on the way. We love the idea of celebrating a new arrival with the super cute year of the ox double onesie set. A pair of snapsuits come packaged in a canvas bag, featuring a funky red ox declaring (in French) “We are the kings of 2009!” It comes courtesy of the hot new label Fauborg St Denis which is  a collaboration...

Horoscope baby tees for people who kind of hate horoscope baby tees

I’m not a horoscope junkie, which means you probably wouldn’t catch me wearing a Taurus necklace. But when I found the Starpower newborn baby astrology sets at WishWrap I fell in love a little. These simple onesie and hat sets highlight your kid’s sign in a really fresh way– instead of the typical zodiac graphics, one of your child’s positive astrological traits is listed under a complimentary graphic. You’ve got to agree that a picture of the earth under Making the world a better place is waaaaay cuter for a Libra baby than some scale. If you’re into this...

Restocking the kids’ t-shirt drawer at Red Poppy

Not exactly sure how it’s happening exactly, but my children are apparently growing. No, really. One minute they’ve got a stocked closet of clothes, and the next, I’m like shoot…how come all the t-shirts are coming to their elbows? I think I need to bookmark Red Poppy, an online Canadian shop that specializes in small-production t-shirts for kids. You know, like the ones we feature here. Right now they’ve got a nice little selection from hip kids’ clothing brands we already love like Lucky Fish (shown) Eight3One, and Class, which makes the chalkboard tees recently featured here. Take advantage...

Mr. T Shirt (That’s um…Mr. T on a Shirt. Not Mr. T-Shirt)

I pity the fool who gives me a hard time for using the phrase I pity the fool in this review. That said, I pity the fool who does not appreciate the camp genius of this Mr T shirt and onesie. It’s beautifully handmade out of felt and frankly, it looks just like the guy in his A-Team glory days. Of course back then, he never would have imagined that his image would one day be handmade out of felt and covered in baby drool. Although truth be told, that’s better than some of his pop culture contemporaries are...

You’re the onesie that I want

Since my sweet third child will most likely be relegated to a life of shared toys and hand-me-down clothes, it’s always nice when someone sends her a personalized gift that makes it 100% clear that it was meant for her and her alone. So if you’re looking for the perfect 2nd or 3rd baby gift, you’ll want to check out the hand embroidered onesie from Baby Gardner. The sweet vintage-inspired elephant design is personalized with your choice of name and is packed in a delightful coordinating personalized drawstring bag. It’s a keepsake that can at least make up a...

Plain [organic] jane

It’s no trouble finding a range of organic onesies bedecked with humorous sayings and adorable designs these days. But I’m a fan of the solid, slogan-free organic play clothes as well, which can be a little harder to track down unless you’re a big fan of oatmeal and white. Apparently moms Katie Winburn and Kristen McNicholas felt the same way and so they created Rattled, featuring bright organic basics for babies and toddlers. I’m loving the saturated colors and soft fabric, but most of all I appreciate that they won’t thin and pill after a few washings. And from...

Oh the weather outside is frightful

I’ve not yet met a mom who loves stuffing he baby in some sort of hot, fuzzy baby bunting for a trip outside in the cold. Well, all that’s about to change thanks to Kate Quinn Organics’ baby bunting, found at Portland shop Little Urbanites. Made from soft sherpa and knit lined, this bunting features side kimono snaps for easy on and off, and reversible hand mitts to keep their hands warm without the old mitten struggle. Plus, there’s just something about the beautiful green with the furry trim that makes me want to put this on my baby...

Overlap baby hats: The bomb

I’m not sure what’s worse – struggling to put your toddler’s hat on, or taking it off only to see the ribbing marks practically branded on his forehead. Well thanks to my kid’s new Overlap baby bomber hat, we’ve got neither of those problems anymore. Hand made from washed and felted recycled sweaters by mom Leigh Anne Hilber, the hats are soft and warm while still allowing your little one’s head to breathe. I love the added detailing on the ear flaps, along with the ties that can be left open or done up under the chin if you’ve...

Vintage inspired hats from the era that kids might have actually kept their hats on

If I’ve learned anything from having three kids, it’s that I’ve got to take advantage of the baby stage when it comes to head wear. Before you know it, they’re old enough toss anything on the ground unless it has Dora’s face all over it. If you’ve got a baby girl (or a bigger one who actually loves hats) then I suggest checking out the romantic vintage inspired crochet hats created by mom Amber Blazina of Timberdoodles Designs. The fresh picked winter hat (pictured) is trimmed with sweet crocheted cotton flowers and vines, and are definitely a step up from the heavy...

Because a screaming baby in velvet doesn’t say “holiday cheer”

Even though my mother-in-law insisted on photos of my then 6-month old daughter in this ridiculous lace and velvet number, when it came down to holiday parties and Christmas day, we stuck her in a comfy, festive one piece. You can bet we’ll be doing the same with our 2-month old this holiday, perhaps in this super cute double breasted candy cane one-piece from Bean New York. Decidedly cheaper than most of the snazzy holiday wear out there yet not over the top with smiling Rudolphs, this outfit is made out of 100% un-stuffy cotton. Just don’t get a...

Hell’s Angels, eat your hearts out

With a son who is obsessed with all things that go, it’s not a surprise that his favorite shirts are covered in adorable little planes, trains, and automobiles. And now, a new addition: The ultimate motorcycle shirt from our good friends at Ooh La La Mama. While it’s decidedly not cutesy, it’s absolutely 100% worthy of any little kid’s chest. With the rebel print boldly stated on the softest tees around (no lie), this shirt will make your little Harley lover – boy or girl – giggle. Or growl. Or whatever it is that cool kids do these days. ...

New for Baby gets color happy

Last weekend I had to buy baby gifts for two kids who are now toddlers, because the pressure I put on myself to buy something so useful and practical and cool and life-changing is so great that I end up procrastinating. For more than a year. Too bad I didn’t know about the awesome new colors and styles at New For Baby. Back when we first wrote about this company, we loved the baby-friendly features  on their yummy cotton layette basics like tagless necks, fold-over cuffs, and easy-to-use snaps. And now the company has expanded from basic pink, blue...

Besitos Designs: DIY multicutural kidswear

We’re always looking out for multicultural dolls, toys and gifts for kids, but so many of them sort of run out of inspiration after the whole “let’s do a multiculural doll, toy and gift” part. Besitos Designs, however nails it. The concept is the brainchild of Peruvian-born fashion industry insider turned LA mom and designer, Wendy Susan Reategui del Aguila. Basically you pick one of twenty Besitos Kids faces, and apply it to the item of your choice. There are onesies and tees with great detailing for both boys and girls, blankets, cutie bags for future fashionistas, or my...

Mookimoo keeps babies in their pjs better than…well, ones that don’t

I love the story behind Mookimoo: A seasoned US Coast Guard couple has a baby and six weeks later, she has to go back to work so he turns stay-at-home-dad. He slowly grows into the role managing diaper explosions and feeding routines like a pro. And then he hits one stumbling block: His baby girl likes to take off her clothes when she should be napping. Sound familiar? The clothes-taking off part, at least? Thus, Officer Randy Reid invented a line of cotton “Mookis,” or snapsuits with–get this–the zippers and the top snap on the back. So obvious, so...

Super cute barrettes for some lucky little girl besides mine

It is just so very O Henry that I’ve got a job giving me access to the cutest barrettes on the planet, and a little girl who refuses to wear them. Even so, when we opened up the package from Little Chirpy Bird and examined designer Cindy Hsu’s utterly adorable wool felt creations, even my daughter went “ooooh….” She went right for the teeny tiny cupcake. She played with it. She asked me to put in her hair. Then she promptly took it out. Maybe your little girl will be more open to hair accessories. And if she is,...

Like ohmigod, these are like, the cutest baby socks like, EVer.

Okay so stop it with the cute baby socks already. Seriously. I mean it. How many times can we be like, no–these are the cutest ever. Oh no wait…these are. Well, at least one more time since we discovered the 80’s inspired, dad-designed Sneaker Socks Set from Me in Mind, which makes teeny tootsies look like they’re sporting your favorite kicks from your misspent youth. The Vans-like checkers are easily my fave, and you can also get the set in a hot pink and black palette if you’ve got a rocker chick to shop for. You’ll find them at...

Peace is the word

We’ve always liked what Slick Sugar offered as far as basic, rock-inspired kids apparel but we really like how they’ve shaken it up lately, adding fabric accents, fun trim and cute cuff detailing to their comfy little play clothes. There a lot of things I think would get a ton of use around these parts, but this peace dress in particular is just adorable. Consider it your daughter’s first little black dress. It’s never too early, right? –Liz CMP readers get free shipping on any order through 10/31 with code cmpfreeship! Congratulations to Slick Sugar guitar tee winner, Kimberly...

Jazz toes, everyone! Jazz toes!

Labor Day is behind us and Fall is unofficially here meaning, among other things, that it’s time to tuck those cute bare baby toes back into some socks. It’s something I might be mourning more, were there not so many way freaking cute socks out there. Jazzy Toes from mom Winnie Liu does an excellent job keeping those little piggies covered in coolness, especially for boys who often get the short end of the accessory stick. You’ll find socks for babies or toddlers up to 24 months–or older kids with smaller feet–that look like deck shoes, loafers, snazzy wingtips,...

Little Pharo – So it shall be written, so it shall be done with Egyptian cotton

How absolutely clever to create a line of luxury baby clothes that, instead of an alligator or polo player across the breast, feature an ankh, the Egyptian hieroglyphic meaning life and symbolizing health, happiness, and magical protection. Kind of something you want your baby in on, right? That’s what new label Little Pharo is serving up beautifully. The quality Egyptian cotton layette essentials have details like simple contrast piping accents and tagless necklines. There are bodysuits, leggings, and cute little caps, but I really like the footsie pajamas as we start to head into footsie pajama season. Grab a...

Yo Homes, to Bel Air!

Now if I told you that Sir Hayes, the kids’ label emblematic of urban Brooklyn chic, was making a onesie inspired by “Carlton,” what would you think that means? Because when I got wind of it, right away a single image popped into my head: Alphonso Ribeiro in his preppy polo shirts dancing the White Man’s Overbite to Tie a Yellow Ribbon. Indeed The Fresh Prince’s not-so-fresh cousin has inspired the awesome new Carlton Onesie. In baby blue or classic navy, it’s a beautifully made little piece of goodness worthy of any hipster-prepster in training. And sorry to stick...

Tiesies – ‘Cause every girl’s crazy ’bout a sharp dressed man

I’m all for outfitting my baby boy in some fine threads on special occasions.  But dressing a wee one in the same style sported by a forty-something man (sweater vests, anyone?) isn’t special–at least not the way you’d intended. Try a tiesie on for size instead.  These organic cotton onesies and tees by Pumpkin Girl are hilarious adorned with vintage men’s ties, carefully sewn into place, so they don’t fall into the wee one’s soup bowl, of course. They’re perfect for those events where other less fashion-forward babies squirm around uncomfortably in rumpled pint-sized trousers and vests....

babysusu – Boys Love Cashmere Too

My mother-in-law is always bugging me about what she should get my son. Sadly, my indecision has led to a showering of scary expensive outfits (emphasis on the scary part) that just end up collecting dust in his closet. So if you’ve got a grandmom looking to spoil your son, then may I suggest the simply gorgeous cashmere sweater from babysusu? The lightweight v-neck with reinforced elbows–you know, for the rough and tough play he’ll be doing in his fancy sweater–makes it more than just a special occasion piece. It’s also a “please don’t buy him anymore velvet jumpsuits” piece. Put him in it...

The Great Hoodini

With fall rapidly approaching, I’ve been on the lookout for the perfect jacket for my toddler son. Since I live in the South, it can be hard to find a jacket that’s light enough for our short fall season, but that’s hearty enough to get us through our mostly mild winters. Bobinette hit the nail on the head with their Hoodini jacket — a clear example that this label most definitely specializes in boys clothes. The soft, simple fleece and the adorable, pointy hood make it ideal for cooler climes. But honestly, my favorite part is the smart hidden velcro closures disguised as buttons.  The versatility alone...

What What? Monster Butt

I’m generally not so keen on clothes that emphasize a baby’s already cute-as-it-is butt with ruffles and words like, um…juicy. But a monster — like the one on Sckoon’s Ha Ha Tee and Monkey Pant Set? Cripes, I can’t think of anything more fittingly adorable for a baby’s stinky little bottom. You’d probably never guess that this brightly colored set is made from 100% fair trade organic cotton, thanks to enviro-friendly and baby-safe dyes that cover up that generic oatmeal color. Which makes it the perfect baby gift for any little boy or girl. The monster baby bottom business...

A Parade of Organics

My favorite baby clothes were always the beefy cotton ones – just good, simple soft basics that felt cushy and cozy, that I knew wouldn’t start to look worn or faded after a few weeks of the puke-wash-puke-wash cycle. Parade Organic‘s Pure Collection would have fit right in with our layette. These organic cotton newborn  essentials including kimono onesies, rompers, and cute stripey newborn caps come in good basic but modern colors that you can get a ton of use out of. Also they won’t clash with those wacky polkadot socks your aunt got you for your shower. And...
