We’ve been longtime fans of aden + anais and all their lovely textiles for our babies, plus the modern nursery furniture and stroller designs from Stokke are some of our favorites.

Time for a nursery makeover? Until now, Stokke has only offered their crib sheets in a range of neutrals—from beige to white to the very palest rose. Now you can find three of aden + anais’s most popular patterns—twinkle, lovely,...

Modern nursery decor to welcome babies, without a princess crown or a train in sight.

It’s been a while since I found handmade modern nursery decor and crib bedding that made me yearn (almost) for an opportunity to redecorate a nursery, and I’ve definitely found it with the Ivie Baby Etsy Shop. You can choose from tons of modern designs. I think what I like best is how they’re all gender-neutral and free from baby room clichés; no ballerinas, no airplanes, no bunny rabbits. Those graphic grey and white crib sheets or lime green pillows are perfect for any baby who gets to spend those early months amidst a modern nursery — and are...

I’m always amazed to see the vast improvements in baby gear even since my littlest one, only two, was a baby, which gives me hope that they will one day be able to manufacture sleep for us parents. Ha. Until then, I’ll just take little advances, like what the folks at Guava Family have done to the travel crib. The new Guava Family Lotus Everywhere crib has a sleek, compact design, and what’s really special: a handy convertible carrying bag that you can turn into a backpack. As a mom of four, I can appreciate having two extra hands, especially...

Our favorite swaddlers, now as crib sheets

The aden + anais swaddlers have been a staple in my household since my second baby was born, but now that my youngest is almost two-years old, we’ve outgrown them a bit. So imagine how thrilled I was to learn that they’ve recently launched crib sheets. The new aden + anais crib sheets are made from the same super soft muslin that their blankets are known for, and really, I couldn’t think of a better material for a baby to sleep on. It’s cool during the summer months, but still cozy in the winter. And if they wash as...

Pink bedding for girls, hold the cavities

I’m a big fan of gender-neutral colors, especially for the nursery. For my boys’ room I mixed in the requisite blue with lime, red and brown, all of which I consider both boy and girl-friendly. When I saw the new ultra-modern pink nursery designs from Olli and Lime, I actually had a change of heart–they are that cool. We are already big fans of the toddler bedding from Olli and Lime, which is best known for its gender-neutral nursery designs, so when they introduced their first “all about pink” collection (our name), we were interested to see how they...

A safer, cozier place for baby to sleep than the car seat

Editor’s Note: The Nap Nanny and Chill have been recalled by the CPSC. You should discontinue use immediately and return it to your retailer.  The last 8 1/2 months have not been easy. That’s how long ago our second child was born. And that was the last time I got a full night’s sleep. One place our baby always seems to fall fast asleep is the car seat, which I’m not a big fan of since it’s not exactly the most ergonomically-correct place to snooze. So I was thrilled to discover a cushier alternative that promises to lull babies...

There’s always been so much controversy about crib bumper safety. Even so, when my first son was a baby, I always longed for a bumper.

However since 2010 was the year that they banned the bumper, skip*hop has been smart to create a very clever alternative The new Complete Sheet from skip*hop is a bumper-less crib sheet that lends the look of an actual bumper. Sounds like magic, right? The truth is, it’s really a pretty simple sheet, with a contrasting design...

New crib bedding sets from Maclaren – the inside scoop from David Netto himself

I’m a firm believer in color therapy, especially when it comes to kid’s rooms. So when I saw the bold and peppy new crib bedding sets from Maclaren, which happens to be the complete opposite of their very chic and very white nursery furniture, my mood magically began to lift. [don’t miss a huge awesome giveaway after the jump!] “If you look around at children’s bedding, it’s vastly light blue and light pink,” Maclaren’s chief designer (and modern design icon) David Netto explained to me. And who could disagree? “I wanted to create something that didn’t exist in the marketplace, which was...
