Unicorns make feeding baby more magical. Because, unicorns.

There’s nothing more magical than holding your baby close as you fill that chunky little tummy. Well, except for maybe unicorns. Yep, unicorns are more magical. And now you can have both. The limited-edition Unikiki Nursing Pillow designed by Tokidoki for Bébé au Lait is everything a new mom in your life would want this holiday season. The pillow itself is a dream — flat and firm on one side, plush and soft on the other, and puts your baby at the optimum height for a better latch and an easier feed. It also includes a handy, two-sided pocket, and both...

Rock-and-roll baby gear that helps you keep the dream alive.

As a parent, your head banging days may be over. And at five months pregnant, mine are coming to an end pretty soon. In fact, lately I’ve been spending much more time agonizing over the perfect lullaby playlist than attending music festivals or buying backstage passes to my favorite local bands. But it doesn’t mean I don’t miss it. Which is why I was stoked to discover Daphyl’s new (and growing) line of rock n’ roll-inspired strollers, sippy cups, and plush toys that really gives a new meaning to classic baby gear.

A sweetly affordable new layette collection from none other than Skip Hop. (What took them so long?)

There’s a reason why Skip Hop is a favorite brand of modern parents. Their ability to create playful and adorable items for babies that aren’t so, well, babyish is what made me a longtime fan, from their nursery decor and crib bedding to their ever popular diaper bags. That’s why I was super stoked to learn about the launch of the Skip Hop Modern Baby Basics layette collection. I wouldn’t call any of the pieces revolutionary, but I like everything I see — and feel. Sometimes the cutest baby outfits are like cardboard, but the new Skip Hop layette collection is made from the softest cotton, even though...

19 very (very) special non-candy Easter basket gifts kids will love.

Between school parties and Easter baskets from their grandparents, my kids will be coming home with chocolate bunnies and cream-filled eggs to last us till the Fourth of July. So I’ve been looking for some extra special Easter basket gifts for kids that go beyond what you might find on your drugstore shelves. They’re perfect for those of you who want to ease up on the sugar; or for kids like ours, who are already going to have more than their fill from other sources. Mix them in with some traditional Easter fare (it is hard to resist jellybeans after all), or limit...

Trend alert: Snow Leopards. They’re everywhere.

This time last year, our kids were all about foxes, probably because The Song That Will Not Be Mentioned was playing on repeat in our homes. While woodland animals are still a favorite with my kids, I’m noticing one animal obsession rising above the rest—snow leopards. My kids see them as cuddly cats with cool fur, so I don’t blame them for ooh-ing at some of the fun snow leopard fashion we’re seeing around our local boutiques.     You’ll find the Schneelepoard Graphic Tee from Tea Collection in their boys department, but that’s not going to stop our girls from pairing it with black leggings and...

Just when you thought there was nothing new in baby bibs: Glitter!

I’m all about the function and not the form when it comes to baby bibs, so I’m not usually one to freak out over a cute one. But then I saw the glitter baby bibs from Luna on the Moon, and everything changed. Okay, that may be a bit hyperbolic, but these bibs are so stylish that I’m thinking of buying one, and I don’t even have a baby right now. Kids love glitter, and this mama loves glitter that doesn’t get all over my house. But I also love that these bibs cover baby from chin to crotch (or probably knees, when they’re...

Baby, you’re about to embark on a serious adventure. But first, get warm.

We recently discovered the loveliness that is Designed by Artists, an emporium full of whimsical, wonderful, handmade baby and toddler blankets, all created by local Houston artists. And I’m not sure how I missed their signature design, but it’s totally captured my heart – designer Insun Hong’s baby blanket that says You’re About to Embark on a Serious Adventure. Have truer words ever been spoken?   I absolutely love the typography, the color choices, the velvety soft backing…everything. And what’s new is that now you can spend a little more and have it completely personalized with your baby’s name and year of...

A bandana baby bib with a pacifier clip. So simple, it’s genius.

There have been no shortage of clever products made since my kids have emerged from babyhood and the handmade bandana baby bib with a pacifier clip from SevenWhiteRabbits ranks high on that list. It’s quite a simple concept but one that’s so smart if you’ve got a baby who loves a pacifier. Take an adorable bandana bib (the most subtle of all the bib styles, by the way), then attach ribbon pacifier clip. Voila! A drool catcher and a binky catcher altogether. Oh, and a little hint: If you see a specific bib you like in the shop, just ask to have the pacifier clip...

aden + anais + (RED): The brand new baby gifts that give gifts to babies around the world who need it most.

When it comes to charities helping moms and babies, I’m crazy supportive of (RED), a division of The ONE Campaign. Actually, we all are around here. Over the years, they’ve raised millions to bring life-saving anti-retroviral drugs to HIV+ moms and their babies in still-developing regions. It’s amazing work, really, and they keep adding fantastic brand partners from tech companies like Apple and Mophie to Bugaboo. But their newest collaboration might be one of our favorites—burp clothes and swaddle blankets they’ve developed with the wonderful folks at aden + anais. Ooh, we’re seriously excited about these. The aden + anais (PRODUCT)RED swaddles, dream blankets,...

Scabib: Kind of a bib, only cooler.

With the popularity of the infinity scarf, why are we not surprised that clever designers are now making them for babies. Presenting the adorable–and yet surprisingly practical–scarf-bib called Scabibs, on Etsy. Is it a scarf? Is it a bib? It’s both, and we’re kind of in love. My kids drooled when they were babies. A lot. So I’m pretty sure I would have velcroed one of these Scabibs on my own kids  had I’d known about them back then.   This is no mere fashion choice. Scabibs are actually really effective in keeping babies’ drool where it belongs, as...

Silikids new silicone drink covers and table accessories for kids brighten up spring

Our readers recently went nuts for Sip Snap lids, silicone drink covers that stretch to fit over any glass, turning it into a sippy. Well clearly it’s a trend because now CMP favorite  Silikids has just released new silicone drink covers too, along with some other fun products that keep mealtime colorful–and a lot less messy–for families. When my youngest turned three I went on a rampage, determined that we would be a sippy-cup free home and my children would know how to drink from a regular glass, darn it. But there are times that visiting friends’ kids come over, and I...

Adorable spring clothing for kids, because it’s almost warm. Really. It is.

Time to peel your child out of the seventeen layers of winter clothing and think about short-sleeved dresses, rompers and sunhats. No, seriously. All you have to do is look at that gorgeous kurta top in the Rikshaw Design line of spring clothing for kids to know why this small label one of our major faves.   With their hand block-printed florals and animals on the softest Indian cotton voile, these cap sleeve dresses, bubble rompers, and burp & bib sets just (gently) scream warmer temperatures and comfy lounging for babies and toddlers. Oh, and did we mention the perfect sunhat? If only we could get a...

…then comes aden + anais and Zutano swaddle blankets for babies. Obviously in the baby carriage

I’ve been a devotee of swaddle blankets for babies from day one, and five months in with Baby #3, we are still using our aden + anais muslin swaddle blanket for every daytime and nighttime snooze. And now that aden + anais has partnered with Zutano, another favorite baby brand of ours, I want to use these new, beautiful designs forever. You can still swaddle a three-year-old, right? The Zutano “Just for aden” by aden + anais collection is a colorful departure from the neutral and calming tones that we’re accustomed to from the aden line. Zutano’s bright colors and whimsical patterns like owls...

Baby trend alert: Gray and white as a chic, gender neutral baby palette

More and more, we’re seeing a move away from yellow for “surprise” babies, and toward beautiful heather grays and rich charcoals. Paired with white, it’s a little less severe than black and can be and incredibly stylish on either a boy or a girl. Plus, you can pair this gender neutral palette with accessories of any color, should you want a pale pink blanket, for example, to tip off admirers that that bald little baby head does, in fact, belong to a girl. On behalf of our partner Nordstrom, and their Little Me collection of very affordable baby basics,...
