We’re Not Only Cool, but a Little Crazy to Boot

We here at Cool Mom Picks understand the important role of the television in your home. How else would you pee in peace and have a great excuse to put off that last load of laundry? But, we also know that sometimes, the boob tube can begin to rule the household and...
Cloth Diapers Made Very Easy. Really.

Cloth Diapers Made Very Easy. Really.

Cloth diapers are back, baby, and they aren’t anything like the leaky versions of yesteryear. No huge scary pins or fancy folding skills required. The Very Basic All in One diaper from Very Baby is as easy as cloth diapering gets. These dipes are almost like...
How the West Was Drooled All Over

How the West Was Drooled All Over

Now that cowboys have emerged as the hot subculture du jour, marketers are jumping all over it. (“Ballad of High Noon” ring tone, anyone?) But the most appropriate use of the cowboy motif as far as we’re concerned is on gifts for little boys. Check...
Just Say No to Frump!

Just Say No to Frump!

Nothing says sexy mama like a big huge nursing nightgown with huge booby slits and a fabulous floral print. NOT. Nursing may not be the sexiest thing on this planet, but just because you’re doing it doesn’t mean you can’t look and feel like a million...

A Cause We Can All Rally Behind

A Cause We Can All Rally Behind

Dianetics states that moms in labor “maintain silence in the presence of birth to save the sanity of the mother and the child and safeguard the home to which they will go.” Um. Democrat or Republican, red state or blue, I think we can all agree on one...
Loungin’ Out In Style

Loungin’ Out In Style

There’s nothing like a crazy day of nursing and sleeping to tire out even the busiest babies. Nothing feels better than tearing off that tight, dirty onesie and slipping on something way more comfortable – say a Lounge Set by Janel and Amy at Abe Jones....
The Pros of Cons

The Pros of Cons
