First Beyoncé and Jay Z, now the Clooneys and Madonna? In case you haven’t heard, twins are seriously hot right now. So I’ve rounded up some super creative birth announcement ideas for twins with a little extra oomph — for those of you lucky enough to be in on the doubles game.

Putting together these ideas for easy Halloween costumes for babies, all featuring clothes and accessories they can wear again, wasn’t just fun — it was very personal. I know I’m not the only parent who doesn’t look forward to spending a lot of time or money on a Halloween costume that will be worn once. (Looking at you, overpriced pea-in-a-pod costume that my first baby wore for a grand total of 45 minutes.) In fact, last year, I realized that every item in my then 8-year-old daughter’s dream costume (Gwen from Total Drama in case you’re wondering) was something she wore again. I may...Read More
We’re so glad we’re raising girls in an era where feminism is front and center, and the number of strong, visible female role models is growing across every profession at the highest levels. So I was thrilled when I saw this adorable feminist baby onesie at Etsy shop Eythink. Because raising girls to be smart and empowered is everything. I love them so much, I’d go ahead and order that two-pack. You’ll score a nice discount, and have an extra baby gift on hand for the future. And, now that our male President has stated that he is “what a feminist looks like,” I’d say consider getting one for your baby boy, too....Read More
You know how much we love to seek out the very coolest baby registry essentials and must-haves, both as a group of moms who are searching for cool baby gifts for our own new additions, and as those who only wish we had them when ours were young ones.

So we are beyond thrilled to have joined up with the most perfect partner, Gugu Guru, the brilliant online baby registry, for some of the coolest baby essentials. They make personalized, unbiased product...Read More
I know I’m not alone in wanting to hurl my laptop out the window many times during what’s probably been the most contentious election cycle of my lifetime. So I had to just stop, smile and breathe a little sigh of relief when I saw the new Let’s Be Friends baby onesie from our friends at Wry Baby. If you’ve got a politically divided family that’s starting to block each other on Facebook, I’d say this is the onesie to put your baby in every single visit until November. And probably beyond. With a collection of happy states from coast to coast holding hands, (though why so...Read More
We’re so excited to wrap up our year by featuring our very top picks in all sorts of categories, starting with our very favorite cool baby gifts and gears that were new or new to us in 2015. This is a tough category to be sure, so we went through our archives, talked to our editors and writers, and put together the few from our archives that we think deserve an extra special nod this year. And perhaps a spot on your baby registry too! In no particular order…our picks for coolest baby gifts and gear of 2015. This...Read More
I laughed so hard when I found this adorable Mama said there’d be days like this onesie from Little Adi, inspired by the Shirelle’s popular song lyrics. Was there ever a more perfect song chorus that’s applicable to those early baby months, even it was was written for an entirely different reason? Okay, so probably No Sleep Til Brooklyn qualifies. Maybe a few others. Not that a baby has any concept what a bad day is; at least until she’s the one frantically bouncing the newborn who’s crying, fussing, not sleeping, and generally being, you know. A typical baby. In other words, maybe they should make this design in...Read More
Wow, it’s been a long time that we’ve been fighting the good fight for smart girl tees, as an alternative to the future diva and future golddigger tees we used to see way too often when our own girls were babies. Clearly we weren’t alone. Because look where we are now! Related: 11 cool career t-shirts for girls who don’t need reminders that they can do anything By now you probably know about Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls — which isn’t just Amy by the way (hey, Meredith!) — and not only are they doing great things for girls, but their organization name happens to lend itself to a...Read More
We’ve noticed a sparkly trend in kids’ clothes this summer: stars. They’re everywhere! And they don’t even have to be sparkly.With Fourth of July weekend coming up, we’ve definitely had stars and stripes on the brain for our kids. These cute baby clothes with stars are adorably festive without making your baby look like one of the floats in the neighborhood parade. Because too much stars and stripes and flag patterns can be, well . . . too much. (Not that babies don’t look cute in absolutely everything.) CMP is an rstyle affiliate We are huge fans of Tea Collection around here, and this...Read More
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...Read More
Lately we’ve seen a lot of quotes misattributed to Shakespeare, but this great one from A Midsummer Night’s Dream is the real deal: Though she be but little she is fierce. And we love it on these onesies and tees from mod & mini on BRIKA. This is such a cool new baby gift; no matter what size she is, we’re betting she’s got a fierce set of lungs. Or get it for a toddler who’s got a spirited personality. (So pretty much all of them, right?) My only teensy gripe? I wish the sizes went up to...Read More
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...Read More
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....Read More
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...Read More
They aren’t as sly as a fox, as wise as an owl, or as puffy as a hedgehog, but the unassuming sloth is poised to be the next big thing for kids, as Liz and I noticed as we toured Toy Fair earlier this year. These slow-moving, surprisingly adorable creatures even have their own week dedicated to them, with Sloth Week 2014 beginning today, June 20 so you and the kids can view online videos and sloth-related TV programming on Animal Planet all week long. (Kind of the kinder, gentler alternative to Shark Week.) If you too want to surround yourself or your kids with all things sloth,...Read More
Superheroes are big right now, but let’s not forget the Power Rangers, who have kicked their way through 20 television seasons of 17 themed series, not to mention two movies, and all in body-tight Spandex. If you’re worried about Rita Repulsa or the next set of Kaiju, you’ll want a Ranger in the house in this Pink Power Ranger onesie, even if all she can do is waggle her arms and coo. The Pink Ranger has been there since season one, is known for gymnastics moves and empathy, and her 100% cotton costume (complete with tutu) isn’t nearly as revealing as some of the other...Read More
I’m the first to freak out over great superhero shirts for my kids (and myself), but there’s something to be said for actual heroes from history. Sure, Thor has a rad hammer, but Abraham Lincoln did real good in the world. So we’re digging these retro-stylish historical shirts for kids, with vintage images of heroes from history. Wee Rascals is a new mom-run business making stylish, US-made tees and onesies with designs based on old stamps, engravings, and books. There’s a small selection now, ranging from Sir Isaac Newton to Davy Crocket to the Founding Fathers. While I love...Read More
After a winter that pummeled us with snow I’m actually looking forward to a few spring showers. So not surprisingly, this little happy kawaii cloud tee for kids is making me happy too. There’s not a huge selection at Canadian indie label Whistle + Flute, but what there is, is adorable. You can also get the tee as a baby onesie, raglan, or sweatshirt and yes, they come in adult sizes too. Or hey, if happy clouds aren’t your thing, check out the kawaii ice cream cone tees. Because ice cream follows April showers, too. Visit Whistle + Flute for...Read More
If you don’t know what totes adorbs means, the Earth Cadets shop will show it to you (Or, a teen who you wish would talk like someone from Earth) with a selection of wildly cool onesies for babies. From organic cotton one-pieces and adult tees to pillows and recycled totes, everything in the shop is screen printed in Chicago by hand and is, yes, utterly adorable. Especially the baby selection. We’re digging all of their designs, from chevrons and arrows to catchy phrases and boom boxes. The baby gift-ready onesies come in a variety of colors, each available in sizes...Read More
