Goumikids newborn hats, mittens and booties: Designed to actually stay on.

Let’s be real, parents. Amid the cry-fests and all-night burp-a-thons, it would be tough to remember a single thing about those early months, if it weren’t for the photos we take and look back on later. (“Oh right! We went to Florida for a week…totally forgot.”). That’s why ridiculously cute baby accessories have a special place in my heart, and hey, they can even give us sleep-deprived parents that squee when we need it most. From Goumikids, the same geniuses who brought us those soft, stay-put baby mitts and baby booties that have become a Cool Mom Picks favorite, they’ve just launched adorable Goumikids hats that, like their other accessories, are more...

Cute, cozy, durable pajamas for kids: Our tried and true favorites. Let the snuggle party begin.

According to that rascal of a groundhog last week, it looks like winter will be sticking around the Northeast for six more weeks. I’m pulling out my Silver Linings Playbook, and choosing to see it as an extension on snuggle parties with my youngster. And everyone knows that warm, comfy PJs are an absolute must for proper snuggling.  So here are 6 cute and cozy — and above all, durable — pajamas for kids I love, from baby up to school age. We love that they are built to last (no holes in the knees after two wearings, yay!) and because...

Princess Awesome: Where trains, dinos, and science symbols help you dress #likeagirl

It’s been pretty well established by now that girls are capable of loving both science and pink. They might even like dinosaurs and pirates and trucks and purple princesses…all together. I know, it’s like a world gone crazy for most mainstream toy marketers who can’t seem to reconcile this wacky “girls like science and trucks” stuff. But hey, there’s hope. Maybe they’ll take some cues from Princess Awesome, a new clothing label for our times. Related: Quirkie kids: Pink tees for boys. And girls. Washington, D.C. moms Rebecca Melsky and Eva St. Clair had so much success with their handmade dresses for babies...

The Valentine’s gift for the baby who stole your heart

It’s coming up on Valentine’s Day, which means it’s the time we start looking for cute Valentine’s gifts for babies that don’t make our teeth hurt from the sweetness. One of my favorite fallback recommendations is the personalized heart tattoo onesie, and this one from Psychobaby is just perfect. Instead of arguing whether it should say mom or dad, it’s personalized with your own child’s name–or nickname. I think it would be pretty cool if his name was Bruiser or something. The shop also features blankets, hats and bibs with the same design in red or pink. All complete with the...

I’m always happy to introduce you to beautifully-curated independent web boutiques and here’s one more  new one that’s caught my attention since its launch just a few weeks ago.

Founder Athena Rotolo has a modern sensibility I just love, and if you’ve got little ones to shop for–or maybe, splurge on–then you must look around this exquisite site. Here are just...

Home T shirts : When you’re proud to be…well, from wherever you’re from.

I smiled right away when I discovered Home T shirts, and you probably will too. Because hey, Texans aren’t the only ones happy to show a little state pride. These super soft, US-made adult tees, kids tees, and baby onesies cover all 50 states, plus Puerto Rico, Cuba, the UK, and even the entire continents of Australia and Africa, simply featuring the word Home over a screen-printed state silhouette. And in a thorough nod to democracy, even DC gets representation here. I support that.   I only feel bad for Colorado Home T wearers, because it just looks like the word Colorado over a big...

Baby pants made just for all-star crawlers

It was so exciting to watch my daughter learn to crawl–until she bypassed the area rug and face-planted onto the hardwood floor. We used to joke that she needed knee pads, so I’m excited to find Go Little One Go anti-slip crawling pants for babies, just in time for baby number two. The super cute gripping stars cover the knees of these one-size-fits-all bottoms, giving baby some traction and control on slippery surfaces. They’re made from super soft and breathable bamboo fabric–which I really love for its extra coziness–and are designed to stretch and move with baby as she takes off. Plus? So cool looking!  ...

The coolest kids’ clothes and accessories: Editors’ Best of 2014

While we love finding the cutest baby clothes for showers (and our staff members who are going through some sort of group fertility thing this year) as our kids get older, we’re so happy to get to look for more cool clothes for older kids and tweens, who’ve aged out of the 0-6 lines. So we’re thrilled to have lots of both on our site this year, with tons of new brands, plus great new lines from brands we’ve loved for years. While this is always a tough one to narrow down, here are our picks for the coolest kids’...
