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...

What’s black and white and chic all over? Your baby’s future nursery, of course! If you’re looking for something other than the traditional blues, pinks and yellows, we’ve got you covered. I’m a huge fan of this gender-neutral nursery trend because it’s modern and sleek, but easily softened up with the comfy pillows, textured rugs, cozy blankets and other ideas we’ve rounded up for you.

From crib bedding to pillows, blankets...

Aden + Anais’ new Pure Merino Muslin collection: Sleep never felt so good.

When I finally figured out how to get my babies in a good, tight swaddle, it changed my life. My night life, at least, because mama finally got to sleep. So I mean it when I say a good swaddling blanket makes all the difference in the world, because no matter how well you swaddle your baby, if it comes undone 30 minutes later it’s useless. That’s why I’ve been a fan of Aden + Anais since the day they first hit shelves. But now that I’ve seen their new Pure Merino Muslin collection of luxury swaddling blankets, I’m almost looking forward to...

Handmade baby blankets with a truly wonderful design

I don’t know about you, but I’m a sucker for nice baby blankets — which is why you see a lot of them around here.  Especially handmade ones. I mean, what’s more sweet than wrapping your little newborn up in a soft bundle that’s one-of-a-kind, too? For lightweight baby blankets, I always find myself turning to tried and true favorites like aden + anais so I’m psyched to share a new source for lightweight, handmade baby blankets with a completely different look and feel from anything I’ve personally found. Designed more like a flat sheet than a thick blanket and made with three layers of organic cotton, these, handmade...

The cutest way ever to get more parents talking to their babies

Want your baby to be smarter? Maybe you’ve seen all the research that says to talk to her. A lot. Especially in those early months and years. And of course you know that – what is parenting these days if not an exercise in reading way too much research from too many experts? Even so, I know that talking to my own babies could get pretty monotonous, so for other parents — or caregivers — who might need a little inspiration from time to time, I think this new, hip line of conversation-starting bodysuits and blankets at TalkReadSing.org are so smart. TalkReadSing is a...

Aden + Anais plus J. Crew muslin blankets: A match made in baby layette heaven

Muslin blankets are among my most beloved baby items. They’re so perfect for swaddling, shading and about a thousand other baby-friendly things, too–as all of us have been preaching for years. When my kids were babies my favorite muslin blanket in the world was the soft, generously cut one from CMP fave Aden + Anais. Though I don’t have anyone to swaddle these days, I’m still excited about the newest prints from their partnership with another CMP fave whose ramped up their cool partnerships lately, J. Crew. Designed by the retailer’s creative director (and cameo actor on Girls this season) Jenna Lyons, this new and exclusive set...

Lucky Palm Tree: Luxury organic baby clothes that make you happy to have a baby to shop for.

Well, here I go again. After five years of heavy spousal debate we are expecting a brand new bundle of girlie joy this winter. And YES that counts as my big announcement! We are ecstatic, but we’re finding ourselves in the position of shopping for baby clothes again, only this time for super warm ones that our summer baby never needed. Luckily I found a treasure trove right away at Lucky Palm Tree. And if you hurry, some of it is on sale. Which is great. Because I did say luxury. Lucky Palm Tree features fresh and adorable organic threads for babies and toddlers...

Handmade toddler blankets for your future hipster who will claim to have had one before they were cool

True story: when my daughter was born in 2006, I struggled to find a stroller blanket that wasn’t either pink butterflies or blue trains. I basically taught myself to sew just so I could make a black blanket with flame-printed fleece. So I’m jealous of anyone with a hip baby today who can take advantage of these gorgeous, hip, and super soft handmade toddler blankets from Designed by Artists. If you’re on Pinterest, you probably have a board donated to pretty typography and clever quotes (we sure do), and now you can have that modern design sensibility on your baby blankets too. Whether you...

Australia’s cutest fair trade, organic baby clothes line now in the States. Yay!

Isn’t it so fun to find a designer who does great modern prints for the kids? As in, not snarky ironic sayings or the same puppies/kitties/fishies we tend to see everywhere? Australian organic baby clothes line Sapling Child has always designed some of my new favorites. But shipping from Down Under? Boo. However this summer they’ve launched their line in the US, so now we can tote our littlest kiddos around in their adorable onesies, pants, and blankets all at pretty terrific prices. Sapling Child’s designs come in a handful of cute styles. I love the kimono onesie for little girls as well as the super-comfy baby pants....

The new Hanna Andersson baby collection is here, renewing our crush on stripes. And Swedes.

For years now, stripes have been a hot trend–on clothes, on bags, on shoes and just about anything that can be striped. So it’s only fitting that the brand new Hanna Anderssson Bright Baby Basics collection launching today is all about stripes, a nod to their Swedish roots. Inspired by the very first Hanna Andersson catalogs and the Swedish tradition of, well, babies wearing stripes, the Bright Baby Basics collection features organic onesies, comfy cotton baby pants and matching accessories in vibrant gender-neutral primary colors, as well as a classic light blue and pink.         Made from...
