Splendid Littles comes to Target. Splendid, indeed!

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...

A mellow baby is the very best kind

My older three kids gave me a heck of a time when it came to taking a bottle, so with number four, I’m determined to find one that she not only takes, but doesn’t add to the challenge with extra gas. And I may have just found the answer with the new Mellow bottles from Green to Grow. [don’t miss a nice discount after the jump] Now I’m not exactly a bottle expert, with my little breastfed baby bottle snobs and all, but I have to say that I’m pretty impressed with these – and it’s not just because...

Okay, kid. Here’s that kitten you wanted.

I’m pretty sure my Christmas list one year included a puppy, a kitten, a bunny, and The Black Stallion. I was deeply disappointed not to find any boxes with air holes under the tree, but you can get at least 3 out of 4 with these adorable stocking stuffers/post-Christmas consolation prizes. Added bonus: clean kids. That’s a great gift. The Surprise Animal Soaps by Sunbasilgarden on Etsy are all-natural, handmade, and cute as a button. With scents including banana, strawberry, bubble gum, cotton candy, and creamsicle, part of the fun will be watching the kids hover over the sink,...

Cute non-skid pants give crawlers a leg up

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...

A gift for kids that doesn’t stink.

When I was little, getting useful gifts was always a huge bummer. Then again, my Great Aunt Hilda usually went for the half-price, open-package soap-and-undies combo pack at KMart. True story: One time, they even had World’s Best Lover printed across the tush. I was 8. But my kids love baths so much that they’d be overjoyed to find a bottle of eco-conscious, gentle bubble bath in their stockings. Especially if it’s by My True Nature. This new, mom-run line of just-for-kids bath products comes with a 100% all-natural guarantee and a cute line-up of characters from a teddy...

Cute clothes patterned to catch your baby’s eye

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...

Taste the (healthy!) rainbow

The latest rage at our house isn’t candy. Or even the colorful vegetables that might end up spit-splattered across your blouse if baby isn’t into beets. No, this exciting new pick is healthy, delicious, beautiful, and handy. And, honestly, kinda half candy and half vegetable, as far as baby is concerned. [don’t miss a great giveaway after the jump!] The new Organic Super Puffs by Plum Organics (read all about them here) may be the only reason my two-year old knows his colors. Made from USDA-certified organic ingredients, they include real fruits, veggies, and whole grains with no wheat...

HappyBaby = HappyMama

Kids like snacks. Like, really, really like them. Understatement of the year, right? I truly believe that if I just had a constant supply of snack-type foods on hand, my children would eat all day. And I have a sneaking –or is it snacking?– suspicion that they aren’t the only ones. So it’s no surprise, then, that they were thrilled to help me test some HappyBaby organic snacks recently. And their thoughts? Let’s just say their mouths were always too full to speak. I’m going to go out on a limb here and interpret their silence as approval for...

Petit Tresor for Target: cuteness and philanthropy go hand in hand

I just went through my little girl’s infant clothes to give to my sister-in-law and wham… seeing those tiny bodysuits brought me back to those early days. I could still smell that baby smell and see her chubby little arms and legs in the teeny clothes. Of course, I had to keep a few things. Every mom deserves to dress her newborn in clothes that make her smile. And because of a fabulous new retailer-charity relationship, now everyone can dress their babies in good quality layette. Jessica Seinfeld’s Baby Buggy has teamed up with Target to create several limited...

Goodbye, dry skin. Hello… cookies?

The cool, crisp air of fall is here, and moms everywhere are pulling out their baby lotion arsenals to keep eczema and dry skin at bay. For me, the toughest part about having kids with sensitive skin is finding just the right product that does everything I want it to do and actually smells nice. This year, I’ve already got two kids begging for lo-lo, thanks to the new line from Lavanila Laboratories. Of course they call it “cookie lotion” because it smells just like sugar cookies with a touch of lemon–in a calming, soft way that moms will...
