Scooter sweetness in a zippy retro-style bib

Babies drool: that’s a fact. I tried to rock the sans bib look for my brood and that option didn’t quite pan out. It turns out that wet necks lead to rashes, not rockstars. My suggestion? Embrace the right bib, and your little one will scoot in style. Finn and Emma’s Scooter Bib has a retro scooter and a mod color combo (orange and gray! divine!) that go perfectly together. The best part? Soft organic cotton and a nifty wooden snap. And a matching blanket, if you want a really awesome baby gift.   I also super love that...

Ceci n’est pas une ironic onesie

Sure, there are plenty of funny baby shirts. And then there are funny baby shirts calling attention to themselves as funny baby shirts. Okay, maybe there’s just one hilarious self-referential ironic tee for little ones. But if you ask me, every hipster baby needs it, stat. No baby should be without a My First Ironic T-shirt Snapsuit from Wry Baby in their onesie drawer. The unicorn! The rainbow! The irony! We all have a bitingly sarcastic friend whose baby needs this shirt, don’t we? And unlike some articles of baby clothing, I think this one only gets better when it gets...

Sorbet for spring, please

It’s becoming clear that sorbet colors have replaced pastels as the new, soft shades of baby clothing this spring. (And hello? It’s spring! Yay!)  While it may be tough for the untrained eye to see the difference between “pastel pink” and “persimmon,” eh, all we know is that this new line from a favorite baby label is pretty darn cute. PAIGELAUREN Baby has been making luxurious 100% organic cotton baby layette basics that we’ve loved since their launch. They evolved into candy colored baby clothes, and now they’re delighting us with a yummy, sorbet collection. (Or sherbet? Your choice. We...

Oppan Euro Style: bold, bright kids’ accessories with real zing

Pink and baby blue? Bunnies and choo-choos? Not today. We’ve got a hankering for cozy, slouchy hats, slippers, and newborn mittens with vibrant, European style that we’ve just found.   The owner of Rattle Tat goes straight to Sweden for the sort of bright, iconic fabrics it’s hard to find over here in the States. Clouds, stars, buses, monkeys, mushrooms and more, work for both genders in a stretchy mix of 100% cotton and Lycra. Each piece is designed and handmade by a Swede living in England, which means prices are in pounds and shipping is a bit high....

Clothes for kids, drawn by kids, helping kids. No kidding.

We love to bring you great picks with a great story, and this one hits home on a lot of levels. Here’s how one little girl is making the world a better place through clothes designed by kids, for kids. Bethany Sawyer was only five when she decided she wanted to make the world a better place. With her parents’ help, she’s now the mastermind behind The Giving Goose. All the clothing designs are drawn by kids — vibrant images of all the things kids like: flowers, butterflies, monster trucks, frogs, and more. Your kids can even submit their...

Fly! Fly to sleep, baby!

I admit, I can’t resist those special little baby layette items that force you to take, oh, 647 photos or so of your baby in rapid succession on your smartphone. How totally adorable is this pilot baby sleep set? (No need to answer. I know!) The 100% soft cotton sleep suit is cute on its own with the little stars and stripes on the sleeves, but then they add faux black lace-up “boots” and whoa. So fun. The finishing touch is the little baby cap with the 40s-era goggle print that would look great with the jammies or not....

Winter Water Factory kids and baby clothes: one more reason to look forward to spring

While we’re still walking around our neighborhood, keeping our eyes out for surprise ice slicks and avoiding the yellow snow, spring is officially only one month away. Whoo! As the gorgeous new spring/summer styles for kids start flooding the racks, there’s so much to love, like the new baby and children’s clothes from CMP fave Winter Water Factory. I love that they’re not phasing out beloved patterns and styles from last year–these are the items that never really go out of style for kids–but they’re adding to it with fresh onesie designs, and more gorgeous geometric prints.   The...

How to give your kids monthly gifts of awesomeness from littlefox

There are so many amazingly unique and gorgeous baby products out there. But when I was a new mama, I was so exhausted and preoccupied, I found it hard to find the time to actually buy all the cool baby clothes, toys and gear I would’ve loved to have. If only I had a personal shopper who could have sent me some of the best things every now and then.   So I think it’s pretty cool that there is a company that selects a few of the most-beautiful and thoughtfully made baby items and delivers them every month...

Gorgeous spring clothes for kids that keep my mind off today’s windchill.

Nununu is a baby and kids label I recently discovered, and instantly fell for. (My daughter owns this alphabet dress in grey, and it’s the best.) The construction is amazing, the cottons are soft but sturdy and I really love the styling for little girls which is a little edgy and a lot playful. We’re so excited to get to give you all sneak peek at their upcoming spring line launching in a few weeks because…gah. The cuteness! Above: Cotton galabiya. Here, Skull a-line dress Patch tee and dyed skirt Sprinkles playsuit Patch tee and french terry shorts NO! tee...

Twin sets for babies we love. Because roses are red, onesies are…mustard?

If pink and red are a little too sweet for your taste on Valentine’s Day, try some mustard. As in, these gorgeous mustard and cream organic onesies that feature a hip, understated version of hearts and arrows. So cute for twins! Or a singleton who likes options. The Baby Heart and Arrows Gift Set from eleventyfive on Etsy (don’t you love that name?) is an adorable way to celebrate Valentine’s Day that’s not too cutesy and totally wearable year-round. The set of two 100% organic cotton onesies is hand-printed in Austin, TX using environmentally friendly inks and available up...

Don’t miss this huge sale at one of our favorite baby boutiques

We love finding cool, unique baby boutiques, especially ones owned by moms (and their moms). The downside is that sometimes these amazing shops close as the owners move onto other endeavors, which is the case with Bean New York.  The upside, however, is that they’re offering 50% off everything in the store, from gorgeous layettes to special occasion dresses, and all sorts of beautiful items for babies in between. Here are some of our favorites, but act fast! At these prices, they won’t last long. {Don’t miss our picks at these amazing prices after the jump} The beautiful knitted swing...

Mighty mittens that stay put so kids stay warm

In my neck of the woods, it seems the snow is now here to stay. And with the cold, snowy weather comes the whining. And the complaining. And the putting-a-pair-of-mittens-on-your-toddler-sixteen-times because you know, he keeps pulling them off. So I’m happy to see that CMP-fave mimiTENS has now created a new line just for babies and littler kids. MimiTENS stay on and the kids keep warm because these Canadian-made mittens have a long, stretchy cuff that goes over a child’s arm, keeping their mittens right where you want them. We Canadians know a thing or two about keeping warm, after...

Dr. Adorable to the OR, stat!

Move over, Future Diva. There’s a new girl in town, and her future’s so bright, she’s got to wear a glittery pink stethoscope. The Future Doctor onesie from Technigirl is an adorable way to let everyone know there’s going to be a surgeon in the family in, oh, about 30 years and 8 million dollars of tuition (accounting for inflation). It’s made in the USA of 100% cotton with phthalate-free inks, and while I don’t think the stethoscope has to be pink or glittery, it will prevent some of those awkward “what a cute little boy” conversations in those...

The cutest baby clothes: Editors Best of 2012

There is something about buying cute baby clothes that we think parents never get over, even when our own babies couldn’t squeeze a single toe into those little onesies. This year brought a slew of gorgeous and fun clothes for babies, and here, we’ve pared it down to our very faves. Kristen: I’m so sad all my babies aren’t really babies anymore, because I’d be dressing them in Winter Water Factory every single day. The unique patterns are unlike anything I’ve ever seen, which is saying a lot from someone with four kids. This year they also added a...

Snuggly faux-fur fashion for your fave baby girl

I remember once dressing my daughter like a mini-fashionista–just for a trip to the grocery store. Yeah, I was that mom. But hey, you have far better excuses for a fabulous baby girl outfit right now, like say 6 weeks worth of holiday visits coming up? So join me in drooling over this furry set by CMP fave Funky Shapes on Etsy (I mean, have you seen their baby booties)? Seriously, if this baby fur boots and vest set had been available when my daughter was a baby, I would have pounced on them. A few things to note: the...

Vampire shirts for halloween, hold the cheesy factor

Nope, it’s not Dracula. It’s not Edward, either. This little guy is waaaaay cuter (sorry, Team Edward). This shirt’s vampire is the real deal: a vampire bat. And he’s pretty adorable, for something that sucks blood. We’ve told you before how much we love the authentically depicted creatures on tees and onesies from BioME5, and this dashing fellow is no exception. Seriously, what could be cooler than a Vampire Bat tee, especially around Halloween? This stylin’ bat is anatomically correct, without a googly eye or hair bow to be found. I especially love that the words “Vampire Bat” are printed upside down on...

With a colorful onesie, some felt, and a pair of scissors, you can pull together one of three simple costumes from NYC’s Pins & Needles: a surprised ghost,...

Can you tell me how to get…a really cool Sesame Street shirt? (Yup.)

CMP has long adored Kiwi Industries for its super soft, US-made organic kids’ clothing–and we’ve always been partial adorable line of Sesame Street characters. So how excited are we to learn they’ve now given Elmo–and our kids!–some new friends to play with? {Keep reading for an exclusive discount for our readers!} Kiwi Industries‘ interpretations of the Sesame Street characters are awesome: they’re vibrant, artsy-abstract yet totally recognizable. Here’s proof: my addicted-to-Cookie-Monster two-year-old went nuts when I showed him the new Cookie Monster sweater (pictured). And then he asked for an actual cookie…but that’s beside the point. Like before, there’s still a lovable...

Cool kids’ clothes ripe for the picking

I’ve always loved early fall for the chance to go apple picking (and the subsequent homemade apple treats!) But long after the apples are gone from the trees, there will be plenty of ways to celebrate apple season with some adorable graphic clothing that’s ripe for the picking. –Christina Apples, apples, everywhere on this Smafolk purple apple-print dress with bright green trim. You’ll be importing these apples from the UK, but this versatile dress will be fashion-fresh for a good long time.  Elizabeth Horton’s nostalgic graphic tee is pure awwww for those of us with growing-up-fast boys. The chocolate-brown...
