Organic kids and baby clothing: 7 labels we love in every price range

The spring cleaning bug has hit, and I’m getting ready to tackle my kids’ closets. It’s a big job. And today of all days, being that it’s Earth Day, I’m inspired to think greener when it comes to my kids’ clothes. While I’m not a fan of harsh chemicals used in the manufacturing process right up against my kids’ sensitive skin all day (especially the younger ones), I know that replacing entire closets with only organic children’s clothing is insanely expensive. So we’re not going to do that. But if you do want to indulge in a few special items,...

Adorable knit bunny, deer and unicorn winter hats for babies from Oeuf NYC. Because, of course you need this.

When you find a gift as adorable as these handknit animal hoodies and winter hats for babies from Oeuf (pronounced uh-f, it’s French for “egg”), I think it’s completely appropriate to ditch any baby gift registry suggestions and go rogue instead. I mean, what friend could blame you for skipping the bottle cleaner when these are an option? These knit hats and hoodies are hilariously charming and sweet, with a whimsical sense of modern style to them. Seriously, buy the unicorn hat instead of the diaper pail liners. You won’t regret it. CMP is an rstyle affiliate Related: The Baby Registry Essentials...

The handmade, organic Frida Kahlo doll: Art history degree not required.

The first-ever gift I gave my daughter was a beautiful handmade doll I found on Etsy, and ever since then I’ve had a thing for gifting my kids one-of-a-kind dolls. Of course, she has her fair share (and then some) of American Girl everything, but when I find a keepsake like the handmade, organic Frida Kahlo dolls made by Mexican artists Maroma + Arte, I feel compelled add to her growing collection. She certainly doesn’t need another doll, but I really want her to have this one. And a little lesson in art history and female empowerment to go along with it won’t...

Cute organic baby bedding — and experts who will help you find a favorite — from Monica and Andy

Whether or not you remember it, there was a time that the only crib bedding options for new parents were matchy-matchy bed-in-a-bag sets or expensive bespoke bedding.

And just this week we discovered Monica & Andy, and they have the some of the most adorable new organic baby bedding collection that we’ve seen lately.

Cool kids’ tees that help support the endangered animals we love, and make kids feel more empowered too.

We’ve all been saddened by the story of Cecil the Lion this week, and we know a lot of you feel the same way. It’s an especially hard thing to explain to kids who may have heard the news too, since children always have such an an innate fondness for animals. But one thing you can do is to help them feel more empowered, by finding ways to support endangered animals. We’ve talked about many charities in the past that support wildlife around the world. And so many of them sell some really cool tees that support some great animal related causes. Take a...

Shark Week is back! Here are 7 of our favorite shark picks for summer

Starting today, it won’t be safe to turn on the television without knowing Shark Week has come ashore, with an entire week of programming on the Discovery Channel dedicated to those creatures of the sea. And while we’re happy to keep the bitey kind of shark in its rightful place in the ocean, we’ve also netted some great summertime shark finds for your kids should they have a soft spot for those toothy fish — and maybe aren’t quite old enough to watch Jaws with you just yet.

Wynn Ruby: One-stop shopping for the cutest baby gifts from small designers.

We’re always happy to discover new online shops that feature some of the small label designers for kids that we love, and now there’s another to add to our list: Wynn Ruby. Right away I knew it was going to be a fun selection when I saw they carried Eleventy-five clothing for kids. But there’s so much more fun to discover. Austin mom Katie Hall opened the shop less than two months ago and I’m already seeing the selection growing by the week. It’s hard to pare down my favorites, but I’m partial to the Kupukupu Kids baby clothing, organic leggings from Babysprouts &...

A tropical trend: pineapple clothes for kids are fashion’s fruit du jour

If my preschooler had his druthers, all of his shirts would be emblazoned with construction vehicles or superheroes. Luckily, he doesn’t have 100% control over his wardrobe, which means I can introduce fun prints and patterns. And this season, I’m all about pineapples. Yes, the tropical fruit is trending in kids’ fashion, giving everything from socks to dresses to denim shorts a relaxed beachy vibe. Since summer break is still weeks away, what kid couldn’t use a little vacation inspiration right now? Here are a few fun pieces that I’m really liking for kids. CMP is an rstyle affiliate   The...

A monster t-shirt kids are guaranteed to love. Because they design it.

It’s hard to find a kid who doesn’t love customizing things to make them their own, from a blank notebook to their bedroom walls. And while I’d rather not have the interior of my car “customized” with stickers, I do want to foster my kids’ love for artistic expression. So, I kind of geeked out over the customizable t-shirt kits by Creatures & Features. And I think they will too. Each kit includes an organic, US-made t-shirt with a monster outline on it and a set of features you iron-on to create a design that’s all your own. They call them a “boy kit” and “girl kit,” but...

Cute, cozy, durable pajamas for kids: Our tried and true favorites. Let the snuggle party begin.

According to that rascal of a groundhog last week, it looks like winter will be sticking around the Northeast for six more weeks. I’m pulling out my Silver Linings Playbook, and choosing to see it as an extension on snuggle parties with my youngster. And everyone knows that warm, comfy PJs are an absolute must for proper snuggling.  So here are 6 cute and cozy — and above all, durable — pajamas for kids I love, from baby up to school age. We love that they are built to last (no holes in the knees after two wearings, yay!) and because...

The coolest kids’ clothes and accessories: Editors’ Best of 2014

While we love finding the cutest baby clothes for showers (and our staff members who are going through some sort of group fertility thing this year) as our kids get older, we’re so happy to get to look for more cool clothes for older kids and tweens, who’ve aged out of the 0-6 lines. So we’re thrilled to have lots of both on our site this year, with tons of new brands, plus great new lines from brands we’ve loved for years. While this is always a tough one to narrow down, here are our picks for the coolest kids’...

Banish bedtime blues with katebaby’s colorful organic kids’ pajamas

We are loving all the bright colors and graphic patterns we’re seeing in kids fashion this winter, and now the organic kids pajamas from katebaby are making bedtime fun. They’re so stylish that we’re tempted to let our kids wear them outside the house as real clothes. They are that cute.   These organic cotton kids pajamas run from newborn (with the footies) to 4/5 years old (in the tee-and-leggings version). My babies were always pretty high on that growth chart from the doctor–like 80th percentile big–so even though pajamas are supposed to be worn pretty snugly, I would have needed to order a size...

Traditional Swedish slipper socks get a lot less traditional

Every so often we come across a small company that takes a classic product and bring it up to date in an irresistible way, and the adaptation of traditional Swedish slipper socks by London company Ace&Me nails it. My kids have lived in slippers like these since they were little, and the fabrics tend to come in more traditional stripes, solids….you know the drill. But here, Swedish cousins Pia Tamm Hagno and Anna Eberstein brought Swedish slipper socks up to date with some wonderfully modern patterns and styles, all of them handmade. – Don’t miss an exclusive limited time offer below for Cool...

AXL Brand organic infant clothing: For those who like the baby to shine more than the clothes.

We’re always so excited to find a new designer making stylish, modern clothes for babies and kids, because as we’ve preached for years now, there is more to baby style than appliquéd sequin puppy dogs playing baseball. (Sorry, puppies.) That’s why I’m excited to share my latest discovery, AXL Brand, a new line of simple, but beautifully constructed organic infant clothing out of San Francisco. These pieces are impeccably made in the USA with soft, 100% cotton fabrics, and the styles are modern and clean, with not a single crazy appliqué in sight. In other words, the clothe don’t toddle into the room before the...

Australia’s cutest fair trade, organic baby clothes line now in the States. Yay!

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....

The new Hanna Andersson baby collection is here, renewing our crush on stripes. And Swedes.

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...
