If you’re on the hunt for a perfectly sweet and lovely gift for an upcoming baby girl, look no further than the source for all that is unique and awesome, Etsy. Here, I’ve rounded up seven of my favorite baby shower gifts for girls found on Etsy.
little pearl boutique

 

The Little Pearl Boutique — for glamorous and feminine baby headbands that any expecting mom is sure to go wild over, check out this darling Etsy shop. From vintage-inspired headbands like this one, to a simple but sweet daisy version, this store has got your little one’s head covered.

little post bebe shoes

Little Posh Bebe — Aren’t these the most adorable pair of baby shoes ever? Little Posh Bebe sells handmade soft-soled baby and toddler shoes in addition to various hair accessories. My daughter has a pair and we always get compliments when she wears them. And we all know no baby shower is complete without teeny tiny baby shoes for everyone to ooh and ahh over.

snug bug

The Snug Bug Shop — Okay, check out that ingenious and gorgeous bib above and tell me you don’t want it? The dress-up bib/burp cloth are just some of the stylish items offered by this shop that also features swaddles, chic baby blankets and changing mats in some of the cutest prints. Because even changing diapers can be stylish if you’re a savvy sassy mom!

king soleil

King Soleil — Trust me, all moms love to receive personalized baby gifts, and there is nothing lovelier than this custom-made embroidered nursery art. Not only will this gift be displayed for years to come on Baby Girl’s wall, but it also screams heirloom. I mean, seriously, could there be anything sweeter?!

redattic

Red Attic — This Etsy shop can custom make a doll for you to match certain characteristics of your choosing, and fabrics for the outfit. Trust me, this is guaranteed to be one toy that will never get donated. The one pictured above was actually custom-made for one Jessica Simpson.

happy bowtiqueHappy BOWtique – Baby girl rompers made of lace? Oh my. These would be perfect for a newborn or baby photo shoot in the future or just for an everyday case of Dress the Baby.

yarningYarningMade — A perfect gift for the pregnant mom that already has everything, this hand-knit baby blanket is both modern and vintage at the same time and is non-baby enough to be proudly displayed for years to come.

baby boy spring fashion

Our top picks for baby boy spring fashion

It’s springtime, meaning time to revamp our closets! This includes our children’s closets, of course. I just love a new season and a whole new excuse to find cute clothes to match the changing weather! I’m expecting a spring baby, and thus thought it would be fun to put together some cute items for baby boy spring fashion! Gotta make sure he’s looking cute as a button.

1. Zara bunny tee
2. H&M sun hat
3. Gap yellow hoodie
4. Pediped Naples shoes
5. Zara striped trousers
6. H&M bib overalls
7. Gap striped shorts
8. Minnetonka fringe booties
9. Hello Apparel anchor onesie
10. Thief and Bandit leggings
11. Gap checkered one piece

Stripes and nautical-inspired clothing is always in for spring

For spring, I always gravitate toward stripes for my own style, and it’s no different for my little one’s wardrobe. Babies in stripes are just about the cutest thing ever, and I plan on decking my own baby boy in them when he makes his grand arrival! The nautical look is always popular in the spring, as the weather is getting just right for boating outings and soaking up some sun. This anchor onesie paired with some boat shoes is the perfect nod to the nautical look.

Channel the Easter bunny with pastel colors

Another hot trend for spring each year is pastels. For boys, it’s easy to lean toward baby blues the most, but I think it’s fun to sprinkle in some pastel greens and yellows as well, for variety. Since Easter is just around the corner, how cute is this sweet little bunny tee? Paired with some striped pants and maybe a bow tie, and he’ll be all ready for the spring holiday!

Don’t forget the accessories

A hat is always a good idea for an accessory to keep the sun out of baby’s eyes, and some cute little shoes or sandals are just perfect, depending on the weather. To keep baby’s feet a bit warmer on the cooler spring days, grab a pair of moccasins and he’ll be styling!

CircusBabyShowerIdeas

Planning a baby shower can be both fun and very stressful. To help you get started, you and the new mom-to-be should decide on the baby shower theme. If you know the gender of the baby, this will also help narrow down your baby shower theme choices. Once you have the theme you can start to search for baby shower invitations, decorations and the festive food that will go along with the theme.

Planning a baby shower is fun!

This month I am sharing some fun ideas on how to throw a circus-themed baby shower. I like this theme because it is colorful and fun and could be used for a gender-neutral baby shower. I started by collecting ideas and inspiration in my Springpad notebook. Here are my favorites from what I collected!

Circus Baby Shower

1. Circus Diaper Cake
2. Circus Tickets Centerpiece
3. Strawberry Donut Holes
4. Circus Baby Shower Invitations
5. Circus Peanuts Centerpiece
6. Circus Cupcakes
7. Hydrangea Popcorn Centerpieces
8. Carmel Popcorn Cones

 

CircusBabyShowerFood

Baby Shower Food

Baby Shower food should be simple and light but still filling. To help with the menu you can ask some guests to bring a salad, veggies or some fruit. You can also order deli sandwiches, wraps or salads from your favorite restaurant to make it easier on you. There is no shame in saving time and keeping your stress level to a minimum. Be sure to have something for vegetarians and be mindful of any food allergies.

1. Green Apple Slices with Tuna
2. Spinach Dip with Veggies in Baguettes
3. Bacon Raspberry Vinaigrette Salad
4. Deli Wraps

CircusBabyShowerDecorations
Baby Shower Decorations

The baby shower signs are a fun way to make your event outside and let guests know they are in the right place.These printable Circus Party Signs I found on Etsy can be customized to say whatever you need! Simple Cutlery Sets, roll up the forks and knifes into napkins and simply use a clear vase to stand them up! This makes for an easy, inexpensive and colorful display on the food table. Use more glass vases to decorate by filling with the orange circus peanuts or real peanuts, and colorful lollipops. If you have any children attend the shower they can take them home as gifts!

Peg Perego Book Pop Up

The Peg Perego Book Pop Up has seven luxury color schemes.

Ahhh…. Peg Perego! Elegant stroller designs and Italian-made luxury fabric. Peg Perego has always been a high-quality brand that stays in the lead of modern innovation.

Book and Book Plus are a big hit

Last year Peg Perego introduced the Book and Book Plus — a stroller that folded in a similar way that a book would close in a one-handed smooth motion. Light weight, yet with all the comforts and amenities we parents like to have for ourselves and for our baby. The Book has been a big hit — it has gotten rave reviews averaging 4 stars with consumers. What more could Peg Perego possibly do for the Book?

How about a modular system? This brand is well-known for putting together some fantastic package deals, and with the Book Pop Up, you get the premium chassis, the seat and the bassinet.

The Book Pop Up is improved on last year’s Book in that the chassis now has a jet black finish and an eco-leather handle bar. The wheels are now made of Polyurethane that gives your baby a smoother ride. And if you have a Peg Perego Primo Viaggio 4-35 (or Primo Viaggio SIP 30-30) infant car seat, you will be able to install the seat directly onto the chassis without needing adapters.

The scoop on new features

What I think is the coolest new feature of the Book Pop Up is the collapsing bassinet. I have never heard of a stroller being able to fold with a bassinet still attached! The sides of the bassinet collapse down, so that it becomes half the height, then you just flip the handle bar right over it and it folds down. Granted, the fold will be bulkier with the bassinet attached, but it still saves you a step in the whole process and makes transporting and stowing your pram much more compact and easier.

The Peg Perego Book Pop Up has other features that make it a must-have such as a reversing seat, and adjustable footrest and a full-coverage sun canopy with extra panels that zip up for neatness.

The bassinet has an adjustable inclined mattress, so you can either have your infant lay flat or slightly elevated. I also like the large mesh panel in the canopy that allows for fresh air flow.

And lastly there is the tailoring and upholstery. Oh! It is to die for! So beautiful and rich, you just want to run your hands all over and luxuriate in it. Choose from seven delectable colors — Onyx, Indigo, Tulip, Cream, Atmosphere, Fleur and Aquamarine. The color shown in the photo is the Tulip.

The new Peg Perego Book Pop-Up arrives to the USA this month, and has a retail price of $799. It will be available at specialty retailers and Buy Buy Baby.

Every new mom needs a diaper bag. Some moms like to change their diaper bag with the changing season. Others use one until it can’t be used anymore, then buy the newest diaper bag trend on the market. I am the latter, and currently on my third diaper bag. My first diaper bag was way too small and flimsy, my second bag was good but after a few years of use it is just worn, and my third is the new Tania Bee Storksak diaper bag.

Storksak TANIA BEEThis Storksak bag is my first designer baby changing bag, and I adore it. Storksak prides itself in saying their baby changing bags are ’A Place for Everything, and Everything in its Place’. The new Tania Bee does the job wonderfully and looks beautiful too, just in time for spring.

Storksack diaper bagStorksak designer diaper bags are the ultimate accessory for stylish moms and dads (yes, dads like their own diaper bags too) but still functional as a baby changing bag. The Tania Bee is roomy with plenty of space for two kids worth of diapering, snack needs for a long day out. The bag is made out of lightweight wipe clean, water resistant polyester fabric, with a multitude of easy drop-in pockets.

Storksak Details

Storksak DiaperbagThe Storksak can be worn several different ways, across the body, over the shoulder (long or short), on the stroller, with the included velcro stroller straps (so much easier to use than stroller clips). The Tania Bee bag style comes with a padded changing mat, insulated bottle holder, key holder. It also has four external pockets and seven internal pockets including a mobile phone pocket and zipped pocket for valuables.

Storksak in NYC

The fashionable Tania is ultra modern and roomy, perfect for city and suburban moms. For Spring/Summer 2014 Storksak has updated the style with a chic gradient design, perfect to carry moms through every season. Plus Storksak’s are built to last, so you might only be replacing your diaper bag for an updated fashion accessory and not because of wear. To check out all of the amazing Storksak styles click here.

In the world of infant car seats safety is king and design is gold, but if the true test of a superior infant car seat is how long your baby will sleep in it, the Maxi-Cosi Mico AP infant car seat wins hands down. I’ve been fortunate enough to try out both the Mico AP and another high-end infant car seat for my now 4-month-old. And while both have their pros and cons, the Mico AP is definitely the one she prefers… and really, isn’t that all that matters?

Lightest in its class

Touted as the “lightest infant car seat in its class”, the Mico AP is indeed incredibly light at a mere 8.6 pounds. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to lift it with the baby inside — especially after having lugged a much heavier version with her older sister. It comes in 14 stylish color choices that any savvy sassy mom would love and works with the car seat adapter for our Uppa Baby Vista which has been super convenient.

Safety features

It also features the advanced Air Protect® Side Impact Technology which, to me, looks incredibly secure. Baby must feel super cozy in the appropriately named Cozi Dozi infant insert as she almost always instantly falls asleep in it… and stays asleep! Beyond all this, the fabric just looks so cushy and comfy even I’d love to doze in it. It’s super easy to clip in and out of the car seat base, and lifting it out of the car is a breeze. While I wish the sun canopy was a bit larger, it’s still significantly larger than the first infant car seat we owned.

maxi cosi mico ap

Other features of the Mico AP
  • For children rear-facing from 5 to 22 pounds and up to 29” in height
  • Superior Side Impact Performance with Air Protect® technology
  • Includes a convenient stay-in-car adjustable base
  • Premium fabrics and padding for a comfy ride
  • Includes Cozi-Dozi™ infant support for smaller babies
  • Integrated canopy, always on hand and easy to store
  • Flip-out visor on canopy for extra protection when needed
  • 5-point harness with up-front harness adjustment
  • Adapters to use Mico as travel system included with compatible Maxi-Cosi and Quinny strollers**
  • Adapters for many other premium strollers available from the stroller manufacturer
  • Available accessories (sold separately):
  • Foot Muff to keep baby warm
  • WeatherShield
  • Breathable Bug Net
  • Additional stay-in-car bases

All in all, this is an infant car seat that I would highly recommend to any of my friends and am so thrilled to have been given the opportunity to try it out. This is one baby purchase you won’t regret (unlike that bottle sterilizer taking up tons of counter space!).

Spring is about to be here — no really it is — and we cannot wait to see all the little girls sporting their spring dresses and baby bloomers. If you are sick of dressing your baby girl in pink then we have some gorgeous blue and purple picks for you!

With the Pantone color of the year being radiant orchid the color palette for spring has been filled with not only pretty pastels but some cool blue hues too. Everything from periwinkle to cobalt blue — what’s on trend for mom is also on trend for baby too.


blue for girls

 

1. Whale Print Flutter Dress $35
2. Knit Cardigan $30
3. Swiss Dot Romper Dress $35
4. pediped Originals Ines Lavender $35
5. Casablanca Graphic Tee $23
6. Matisse Garden Ruffle Dress $30
7. Crochet Socks $6
8. Painted Flower Ankle Pants $42
9. Quilted Jacket $32

5 Shopping for your toddler tips

1.  Shop around. Try not to buy everything at one store, mix and match items from different stores so they are not so matchy-matchy. The zebra leggings at one store might go great with a funky pink and yellow skirt from another store.

2.  Hit the sale rack. Always cruise the clearance racks for inexpensive items and accessories. Don’t be afraid to buy things you really love for the following year, like a gorgeous coat that is only $10.99

3.  Go big. Always buy a size bigger so you can get more wear out of it. Sweater sleeves and pants can be rolled and kids grow like weeds, so it’s better to be a bit larger than only be worn twice.

4.  Layer up. Layer long sleeve printed t-shirts under graphic t-shirts or dresses to create a funky look but also to keep them warm. Buy a few colorful cardigans that will look good over many dresses and t-shirts.

5. Buy quality shoes.  If the one thing you are going to splurge on, let it be the shoes!  Quality shoes are essential for new walkers and growing baby feet. They also can make a pretty big style statement.

Will you dress your baby girl in blue?

Although this has quite possibly been the longest winter in history and it’s tough to believe, but summer will be here, eventually. So you might want to get your hands on these cute swimsuits for baby before they’re gone!  Whether you are packing up the family for a Spring Break getaway or you’re dreaming of your exotic summer vacation, these baby swimsuits are just too irresistible to pass up. Sure you can buy a few less expensive swimsuits from old standbys like Target or Old Navy, but these super stylish swimsuits for your sweet baby will make a much bigger splash both in the pool and in the memory books!

 

25 Cute Swimsuits for Baby Girl
Finding the right swimsuit for your sweet baby is truly a matter of taste and budget. Some moms love a suiting their baby up in a cute bikini while others think a stylish one piece is just as precious and covers up a bit more of babies skin. Some of my favorite brands for adorable swimsuits are Kate Mack, Isobella & Chloe, Love U Lots and Juicy Couture, all of which can be found at Nordstrom.

These swimsuit brands cost an average of $45. Le Top and Little Me also make some very sweet baby swimsuits that cost an average of $30. No matter which cute suit you choose for your little one this year, make sure baby is thoroughly lathered up in sunscreen and protected from the sun’s rays with a sun hat.  We love the California Baby sunscreen stick for baby’s face.
