Toting Sippy Cups in Style

I have never understood the question, “what bag do you carry?” Bag? As in, one bag, singular? I know of no such thing. If you share my weakness for accessories, you’re going to love Chicago designer Suzanne Kopulos’ Boujie Baby Couture. She...
Lettering in Toddler Fashion

Lettering in Toddler Fashion

Fall is in the air and I can almost smell the school lunches. Okay, so my toddler isn’t going to high school anytime soon, but that doesn’t mean I can’t dress her like alittle varsity superstar. Take these personalized varsity tees created by Karen,...
Only a Baby’s Butt is Softer

Only a Baby’s Butt is Softer

You’vebeen there before: You get the baby shower invite, peruse the registry, and try to figure out what you can buy that will actually be of use. And let’s be honest, a “keepsake blanket” is probably not at the top of your list. Isn’t...
Nice Package

Nice Package

I’m a sucker for great wrapping. Yep, I’m the one at gift exchanges who instead of shaking the box and examining its size and shape picks a present solely on the pretty paper — even as I end up the proud owner of a new electronic nose hair trimmer....
Look Ma, No Sparkles!

Look Ma, No Sparkles!

My older daughter, Mimi, is a princess-kittens-glittery flowers kind of girl. I can’t convince her to don any clothing that doesn’t scream I AM A GIRLY GIRL, most often in some shade of pink. Rosie, however, is more tomboy than princess, which makes...
Take Me To Your Bathroom Sink

Take Me To Your Bathroom Sink

I’ve met kids who will eat raw oysters and kids who clear their plates without being told. But I have yet to meet a kid who likes to wash his hands. Maybe if the bathroom were a more child-friendly place, the odds would tilt in the favor of personal...
Let’s All Do the Bump

Let’s All Do the Bump

If there is a “next time” and I end up with a cute little bump instead of the quadruple roly-poly thing I had with baby number one, I’m getting a cute little BUMP shirt to match. These “Baby Under Manufacturing Process” tees are just...
The Other Layettes Will Be Jealous

The Other Layettes Will Be Jealous

Yes, you can purchase a “layette” as a baby gift–a complete set of boring onesies, bibs, and Victorian-era booties that I’m not sure ever make it out of the box, let alone the house. And then there are those sets that just make your ovaries...
Saddlebags You’ll Actually Want

Saddlebags You’ll Actually Want

For several years now, Skip*Hop has made the practical, durable, men-love-’em-too diaper bags that adorn the strollers of the smartest parents around town. Recently the company went big with their ingenious double stroller bag. But now they’re changing...
Baby in Red

Baby in Red

When you’re fresh out of the maternity ward, you can hardly be counted on to brush your teeth, let alone pick out coordinated accessories for the offspring. It seems a small matter until months later, when you scan through the millions of baby photos, and it...
I’m This Many Years Old

I’m This Many Years Old

It’s birthday time here at Cool Mom Picks–it just so happens that our girls (Liz and mine) will be celebrating their first and second birthdays within a day of each other. But instead of attempting to keep a tiara on the head of our tots, we’re...
I’m With the Band

I’m With the Band

As a tall preggo, I had a pretty long awkward stage – you know, when your regular clothes are too small in the belly, but maternity clothes look like you’re playing dress-up with a parachute. I couldn’t evensport my old shirts because they...
