Baby trend alert: Gray and white as a chic, gender neutral baby palette

More and more, we’re seeing a move away from yellow for “surprise” babies, and toward beautiful heather grays and rich charcoals. Paired with white, it’s a little less severe than black and can be and incredibly stylish on either a boy or a girl. Plus, you can pair this gender neutral palette with accessories of any color, should you want a pale pink blanket, for example, to tip off admirers that that bald little baby head does, in fact, belong to a girl. On behalf of our partner Nordstrom, and their Little Me collection of very affordable baby basics,...

The coolest new baby gear: Editors’ Best of 2013

A lot of great new baby gear was born in 2013 and, though we hate to play favorites, we have 9 picks that deserve special mention for being extra-cool, innovative, practical, and helping make life with baby a little bit easier. Maybe even more stylish. Even if you’re working on only two hours of sleep and the idea of matching your diaper bag to your stroller is wayyyy down on the list of priorities.       Kinderwagon Hop Double Stroller We waited a long time for the widespread release of this lightweight and narrow double stroller since we...

The designer diaper bag you won’t give up with the diapers

It’s been a while since I’ve found a designer diaper bag that made me wish for a do-over on the diaper bags I carried during my own early stroller-pushing days. And now, here are three from one of my favorite designers.     While Marc Jacobs may not know nothin’ about birthing no babies, the Marc by Marc Jacobs Pretty Nylon Eliz-a Baby Bag shows he still has it when it comes to chic accessories. The quilted nylon bag looks luxe in wearable taupe or black, whether or not anyone realizes there’s a changing pad in there, or a bottle in one of...

The Orla Kiely baby bag: designer on the outside, diapers on the inside

Since I love everything Orla Kiely, I’m so glad to see this London designer out with a cool new diaper bag for moms who don’t want to trade their sense of style for their sense of practicality. The Orla Kiely Baby Bag is so great looking for fall. I love that while it looks all fancy, it’s made from a coated canvas that wipes clean, has tons of pockets, and the nylon interior is made for those spills we moms wish we didn’t have to deal with but always do. There’s even a coordinated changing pad–which might be the only way...

Beaba goes from baby food to diaper bags in style

We’ve made no qualms about expressing our love for Beaba’s cool baby feeding products, from the awesome BabyCook Pro (included in our Baby Shower Gift Guide) to their folding bottle-drying rack. So when we found out that Beaba had entered the realm of diaper bags with a new line, we knew we had to check them out. The verdict? Nice work, Beaba. The new line of Beaba Diaper Bags is definitely a departure design-wise for the company, but, hey, we love a good surprise. These diaper bags come in several new styles with our favorites being the New York (shown...

French stripes from skip*hop, ooh-la-la!

My obsession with stripes runs deep, so much so that I’m coveting yet another  skip*hop diaper bag (love them!) even though I’m waaaay past the diaper bag stage. But…but…this one is limited edition! Snatch up the Duo Luxe French Stripe bag while you can. This looker features everything we’ve always loved about skip*hop bags, but in a cool limited fabric pattern and with rolled handles, which makes it look a bit swankier than some of their other choices. But just because it looks stylish doesn’t mean it’s not functional. You can still wipe it clean, and pop it easily...

What to buy for twin babies? Reader Q&A

Q: I’m having twins and I need everything. Where do I start? Please help! -Julia A: For this post, we’ve called upon friend, blogger, and twin mom Kelcey Kintner for some first person advice. Twins! Yay! Wait, why are you hyperventilating? Ha. Kidding. I know it can be pretty daunting to figure out what you need when you’re expecting not one but two wriggly bundles of joy. I can’t help you take care of them (seriously, don’t even ask), but as a mother of twins, I can absolutely tell you what you really need to buy or borrow. And...

The new Jonathan Adler diaper bags you’ll covet (no baby required!)

Even though I’m only in my second trimester (!), I’m all about planning, so naturally, I’ve already bookmarked some of my most coveted diaper bags (thanks to Cool Mom Picks). Too many choices! But it may have just gotten easier. The new line of Light & Luxe Jonathan Adler diaper bags in collaboration with Skip*Hop is a joy. We’ve long been fans of Skip*Hop diaper bags and accessories, and this one combines all the smart design and practicality with that modern look that Adler fans can’t get enough of. I love that the bag is incredibly lightweight, yet holds...

Snazzy snakeskin bags that, okay, you can call them diaper bags

The more kids I added to my brood, the more I actually wanted (and needed) a smaller diaper bag. Since I was already juggling children, I didn’t need to add a child-sized bag to the mix, you know? If only the new python bags from CMP-fave My Cocolime were around when I was in diaper bag mode. {Don’t miss an amazing giveaway after the jump!} We’ve been longtime fans of My Cocolime, from their awesome lunch bags for kids as well as their diaper bags, so it’s no surprise we’re digging their newest collection, all designed by a mom...

A changing pad and chic chevron diaper bag in one

Changing diapers is hardly what I’d call my chicest hour. But then I had never used this. Don’t miss a great giveaway after the jump! The new Patemm navy chevron-striped pad is available exclusively at Pottery Barn Kids–and yay for the small mom-run company that created it. We have loved Patemm changing pads going way back to 2006 for the super smart round design that allows moms to lay their little one down any which way for a diaper change and not have them squirm themselves off a corner. And after all these years? They’re still made in the...
