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...

The Mini Life: When you feel like you’ve seen every baby and kid gift out there, here’s where to go.

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. Mini Life is an exquisite children’s lifestyle boutique packed full of gorgeous toys, decor, home items and more, all cultivated from around the world.

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 new Aden and Anais teething toy: Prepare to make room on your registry.

It seems the masters of all things cozy for baby have done it again; our friends at Aden + Anais, have added yet another baby registry must-have to their collection with new Aden + Anais teething toys and ooh are they cute. Made of maple wood, which is awesome for calming those poor swollen gums, and fitted with a cotton muslin mini-blanket for extra comfort, this teething toy-lovey hybrid is genius. And here I confess that my five-year-old still sleeps with her original Aden + Anais muslin swaddler, so I know firsthand the calming power of these magic blankies.   The designs are sweet and cheerful, in shapes like elephants, stars, posies...

The BabyBjorn bouncer gets a modern makeover with polka dots

I’m determined to keep the baby clutter to the necessary minimum for this second round of parenting, and not a wipe warmer more. (Actually, not a wipe warmer at all.) We misplaced a few of our essential items, though, including the trusty baby bouncer so what great timing to discover the new BabyBjorn Bouncer Balance Soft from the BabyBjorn Dots by Karin (as in, the company’s art director Karin Hoxster) collection that’s exclusively at Kohls. I was raised in a house designed almost entirely in black and white, so this very cool modern polka dot collection caught my eye right away. It’s exactly what I have been looking for —...

New monogrammed baby shoes from Robeez. This time it’s personal.

They say it’s all in a name and the name here is your own kid’s. Well, that plus Robeez. As long time fans of the baby shoe brand that rose from start-up to Stride-Rite, it’s no surprise that we are all ogling over their perfectly adorable new monogrammed Robeez soft sole baby shoes. It was early on with my first child that I discovered and fell hard for Robeez.  First because they were the only shoes that would fit over her rather plump tootsies (got to love that elastic ankle). And second, for the huge array of fun styles. I find this...

Mama’s Milk Warmer: you’ll never have to wait for water to boil again

It’s 3 a.m. and your baby is screaming at the top of her lungs. You are trying to heat up breast milk as quickly as humanly possible. Microwaving creates hot spots and potentially burnt mouths. Placing a bottle in a pot of boiling water makes it bob up and down and almost always burns you. And that fancy bottle warming gadget you registered for? Much more complicated to use than anticipated. If you’ve ever tried warming breast milk from the fridge or freezer, chances are one of those scenarios rings a bell. That’s why a company called Nutto created  Mama’s Milk...
