PAIGELAUREN Baby’s terrific new collection is now for toddlers, too

We fell in love with the lovely baby clothes from PAIGELAUREN Baby years ago–oh, that tailoring! Those stripes! Those polka dots! And now, our mama-fashionista hearts are swelling once again as they get into clothing for the actual walking and talking set. Everything we adored about PAIGELAUREN’s teensy baby-sized outfits is now available in their new collection of toddler clothes including 2T and 4T sizes. And there’s a lot to adore: every piece is made with impossibly soft modal supima cotton, in classic mix-and-match designs that are way too adorable to be called basic. The color palette for everything is earth-inspired,...

Sweet savings on Tea Collection and their stunning new clothes for kids

With the air already getting cooler, it’s time to pack up our our kids’ tank tops, shorts, and summer dresses and replace them with new warmer clothes. Fortunately, we have some awesome ideas in that department, as you might have guessed.

The biggest sale ever at one of our favorite shops ever

One of the awesome things about this job is getting to discover so many wonderful small businesses run by the most amazing people. One of the hard parts: hearing that they’re closing shop to move onto new ventures. This is the case with one of our longtime favorite kids’ boutiques, Arte Bebe. But on the upside, they’re offering a huge (huge!) discount just for our readers while they clear out stock. Right now, score 30% off already discounted prices on any fashion, toys, gifts and accessories on the site. Considering a lot of it is already 10-50% off, that’s...

A bib that’s less bib and more boho

Babies drool. My oldest was so good at it that every outfit was always drenched. If your pint-sized, drooly hipster needs something a bit cooler and less traditional than a regular bib the Bobobib might be your speed. Bobobib looks like a perfectly tied bandanna, but nifty velcro does all of the work for you in back. And unlike a bandana, Bobobib is truly absorbent and practical to boot and all made in the USA. The organic cotton fabric is super soft, and the 20+ patterns are all really funky and fun. I am partial to Her Cruisers, the...

ThredUp reinvents itself and now buying discount designer kids clothes–or selling them–is a joy

You know how it goes: your kids wear their clothes for a ridiculously short period of time. Sure, there’s always hand-me-downs, or consignment and Craigslist, if you’re motivated enough to try to make some money. But those routes require time and energy that many of us are sorely lacking at this time of year. So we’re happy to discover that thredUP has newly relaunched, as a very easy, very good-looking online consignment shop.

The baby girl gift that warrants an extra-nice thank you note

My favorite baby girl outfits were ones that could be worn for a fun little playdate or a special day out with just a simple change of shoes. And that’s exactly why I love this adorable tunic and leggings combo from Cool Mom Picks fave Bean New York. [don’t miss a limited time discount for CMP readers after the jump NOW EXTENDED] Maybe because it reminds me of what I brought all my kids home in; but this simple, beautiful, pebble knitted swing baby tunic and leggings outfit is the perfect addition to any little one’s fall wardrobe and a...

Coming soon to a galaxy far, far away: awesome Star Wars shirts

This boutique line of hand-embroidered shirts brings together three of our favorite things: Star Wars, babies, and sock legs. Also, Wookiees. The new Morfs line from welovefine includes five Star Wars shirts for infants and toddlers that meld retro-esque fabrics with hand embroidery for a unique look. We know your kid is too young to decide between the Empire and the Rebels. But we also know that any kid would look adorable wearing a Chewie this fuzzy. Okay, so maybe you like some power. Maybe your baby snores. Maybe he finds your lack of binkies disturbing. There’s always Darth...

Baby gift sets from the land of driving on the wrong side of the road

While we’re all still on this post-Olympic London kick (man, aren’t you dying to go right now?) it was great timing that we discovered this brand new children’s line straight out of London. [don’t miss a fantastic limited time discount for CMP readers after the jump!] Designed by new mum and former architect Jen Taylor, Hokolo (an amalgam of Hong Kong and London) has just introduced its very first line showcasing adorable baby clothes and toys based on the Crown Jewels. These are super special baby gifts,  especially if you’ve got friends in Britain. Although certainly we ‘Merikins will...

Stylish clothes for kids, no shopping required

We’re happy to introduce you to our new sponsor, Wittlebee. We think you’ll like them! The hard thing about buying nice kids’ clothes is facing the inevitable: the clothes will be outgrown. Quickly. What that means is yet another trip to the store, spending more time scouring the web for sales, and dropping even more cash to basically redo your kids’ wardrobe. Again. That’s why WittleBee is genius: it’s a subscription clothing club where stylish kids’ clothes come to you. All you do is sign up for the service, have a phone chat with a stylist about your clothing preferences, and...

PunyPixel – small clothes, big ideas

I’ve just found a new brand that has everything I love…eye popping designs, a charity component, and organic cotton. The only drawback: it’s only for kids. The designs at PunyPixel are admittedly quirky, but I think they’re cool. The line features four culturally diverse characters, like Mike, above. Each one has his or her own unique look and style. If you’re feeling spacey, I would go with Leo. If you’re feeling like all of your chakras are in alignment, Sid is your girl. PunyPixel supports charities that they have a real connection with, and they rotate every couple of...

The full body baby bib, for full contact baby feeding

There were moments in my children’s earlier years that all I wanted to do was cover them in a full body raincoat.  It seemed like meal times turned into “let’s get as covered with food as we possibly can” times.  Thankfully, a brilliant mother out there has created a great solution with a full-sleeved, laminated baby bib from Baby Graybee. These bibs for babies 6-18 months keep even the most spirited eaters clean at meal time. The front of the bib is made of BPA-free laminated cotton, providing waterproof coverage for spills. The sleeves are a comfy soft jersey...

City Threads goes baby

City Threads is a great little clothing company that I’ve raved about before. You can recognize their “Brooklyn” bucket hats on many a hipster kid at the nearest playground in my (nowhere near Brooklyn) neighborhood. Now they are finally veering into the baby clothing world and all I can say is… what took you so long? The baby onesies are made of the same comfy, durable cotton I love on their big kid stuff. The patterns are simple but fun, for babies who don’t need a lot of work to convince the world that they’re cute. Plus, they are...

Shoes that grow with your baby. Really!

Don’t even get me started on the hassle of shoe shopping for kids. The second my son started walking last month, I knew we were in for a new pair of shoes every couple of months, just like I had done for his older brother. But then I discovered a new shoe brand that expands along with your tot’s ever-growing tootsies and I’m smitten. The idea behind Shupeas, a new collection of expandable baby shoes that fit sizes 3 to 24 months, is pretty genius. Thanks to some strategic straps and Velcro, you are able to custom fit the...

Serious rad upcycled childrens clothes for seriously special occasions

[updated with corrected info] There is something so special about children’s clothes with history. Hand-me-downs aren’t just a frugal choice: there’s often meaning in seeing your child in his grandpa’s favorite college sweatshirt. And now there’s a talented artist who’s preserving those memories–and clothing–in a truly special way. Kindred Cloth (even the name is divine) is a family owned business that runs on love and extraordinary talent. They’re applying remarkable talent to creating special outfits for children, by transforming a parent’s old shirt or other garment into something gorgeous and new. You can choose from their own ready-made designs...

Say chubby baby

In some neighborhoods, where feeding a baby a single french fry will earn you the disdain of onlooking parents everywhere (would I know of such a thing?) my anti-authority side is loving a line of vaguely irreverent baby and kids clothes that walks right into the realities of our fast food nation. [don’t miss a great discount AND a giveaway after the jump!] How can you not smile at the poppy colors and bold full-color photos of the Eat ‘Em Up Collection from our friends at Psychobaby? From baby tees and flip-flops to to baby bibs (my favorite) I...

Baby bloomers nearly as cute that little butt they’re covering

One of the essentials in my girls’ summer wardrobe when they were babies were bloomers. It was so easy to just toss a cute pair over a diaper, add a little tunic or tee, and we were off. I love the selection of high quality cotton baby bloomers at family-run Kicky Pants, which have the cutest little ruffle detail on the back–just enough to make a statement but not so much that the kid’s butt looks like a wedding cake. (Trust me, we’ve seen plenty of those.) They come in 9 sweet colors including a fun lime green which is now...

Turning baby clothes into a quilt. Or better, having someone talented do it for you.

If you’re like me, then you’ve got a couple of boxes in the attic with a few of each of your kids’ baby clothes. Every now and then I wonder what exactly I’m going to do with them when I pull them out in ten years and they’re all dusty and mildewy. I’ve always liked the idea of keepsake baby quilts made from baby clothes, but so few actually look as gorgeous as these. Each Keepsake Quilt is handmade by mom Lucinda Snyder, who works with you to create a beautiful 30 x 30 blanket made from 12 to...
