Time to pack away your woolly hat and break out the rainboots. Not just any rainboots ladies, we want you looking fabulous while the rain drops fall on your head. Ditch your grandma’s black rubber booties and slip on your KAMIK daisy print wellies. We’ve mentioned how great they are in the past, and now that the weatherman is calling for wet grass it’s time to put them on and go splash in the puddles. KAMIK boots are made to face the elements with style and function in mind. Brilliant patterns, great traction, lightweight, weatherproof and Canadian…what more do you need? Celeb mommies and best friends GWYNETH PALTROW and MADONNA agree, as do COURTENEY COX and newly single and reportedly dating REESE WITHERSPOON. We love the MOMMY & ME sets of KAMIK rainboots you can purchase at DLL RAINWEAR (www.dllrainwear.com). Look chic and sassy while you and your sweat pea splish splash in the rain.

French baby clothes make me so excited. Not only are they hip and stylish, but they are also timeless and so original. The designs at The FRENCH CHIHUAHUA will not disappoint. French, vintage inspired onesies and tees that will make your baby the best dressed tot at your next mommy and me coffee date. We love the attention to detail and the sweet French phrases screened onto each delicious tee. Original and memorable, the puffed short sleeves really make them stand out from all the rest. The FRENCH CHIHUAHUA makes eight gorgeous designs (2 boys, 5 girls and 1 preemie) of their tees and donates a portion of the sales of the preemie onesie to The March Of Dimes. How fabulous is that? You know how much we love black onesies here at Celebrity Baby Clothes ( it’s the only time I don’t fret about forgetting a bib), and you can choose to have certain designs on black fabric. It wasn’t an easy choice, as we thought all of FRENCH CHIHUAHUA’S creations were brilliant, but The Queen Bee (Reine des Abeilles) onesie wins as it describes my little bean to a tee. Check out what makes us go Ohh La La at www.frenchchihuahua.com.
While strolling with your baby down Robertson BLVD, or through Soho on a sunny Sunday you want to look hip, stylish and sleek. No problem if you have an UPPAbaby VISTA STROLLER. Quite simply the most beautifully engineered and functional stroller we’ve ever had the pleasure of using (how do they get the metal to bend like that?). We were stopped countless times while out today for a walk with moms wanting to know where we got our cool ride. Who else owns this fab find? None other than new mommy TORI SPELLING. Now that she and mom Candy have reconciled, they will be able to go for strolls with baby Liam tucked safe and sound in his new Black Vista UPPAbaby. The UPPAbaby comes with a pram and reversible seat, so it’s great if you need the convenience of a bassinet in the beginning, and when your baby grows you can switch to using the seat. The extra touches such as the ample basket, tires that can’t go flat and the height adjustable handle put UPPAbaby at the front of the stroller race. Other smart and fashionable celeb moms that ride with UPPA style are BROOKE SHIELDS, MICHELLE WILLIAMS and MARISKA HARGITAY. Move over Bugaboo, there’s a new ride in town. To roll like TORI and to find out where you can purchase an UPPAbaby stroller, go to www.uppababy.com.
What you’re wearing is probably the last thing on your mind when you are pushing with all your strength during labor. The janitor could come in your hospital room and offer to help and you wouldn’t care. However, once that little bundle is out and you are entertaining all your friends and family in your tiny hospital room, you want to look good for all those pictures. DEARJOHNNIES (www.dearjohnnies.com) are stylish, pretty and functional hospital gowns that cover your tush after you’ve pushed. They have been featured in numerous mags, such as FIT PREGNANCY and BUNDLE and were given to celebrities at the MTV gift lounge during the MTV AWARDS. You can look fabulous like a Hollywood mom, even when there are ten people in the room looking at all you have to offer. Makes a great gift for that mommy thats’s about to go into labour.
Let’s just face it…we dress our babies for ourselves. If we like sports, then we put our bubs in hockey jerseys. If we like the ballet, we dress our wee peanuts in tutus. For all you animal lovers out there, we have a onesie for you. THE MINI TEE makes an original ANIMAL TRACKS collection that is memorable and hip. Simple phrases are accompanied with the tracks of a particular animal. They make a statement by using catchy phrases and creative design. We love the ELEPHANT WAS HERE onesie with the two elephant paw prints. It suits our little elephant at home just fine as she knocks over potted plants and crawls along the floor. These clothes let you show the world, or at least the other kiddies at the playground, their personality and style. Isn’t that what being a celebrity baby is all about? THE MINI TEE also makes super soft and affordable tees for the other kiddies in the house. Is your three year old about to become a big brother? Then let him shout it out at pre school with his new BIG BRO tee. It would look great on MADDOX being a new big brother to PAX. He would look proud and stylish, as usual. See what all the fuss is about at www.theminitee.com.
Where do GWYNETH PALTROW and BROOKE SHIELDS go to get the most luxurious clothes for their wee ones? PIXIE LILY is the place to shop for the softest and most yummy layettes.

No wonder this company is such a fave of Paltrow and new mommy of twins MARCIA CROSS. PIXIE LILY doesn’t forget mommy either. They make super soft and perfect rainy day pajamas and sleep shirts. Loungewear that makes you want to stay cuddled up all day in bed with your baby. If only I were a celebrity mommy, that’s just what I would do.

Don’t hide that growing belly! Be proud and show off that growing bump with a tee from SAMSON MARTIN. Form fitting and made to help momma feel sexy, these shirts were worn by GWEN STEFANI and JENNIFER GARNER while they were expecting their bubs ( sometimes even celeb mommies need a little something to make them feel yummy). Super soft and stylish, they make the perfect gift for your pregnant friend. You can get one with a cheeky line or the month announcing the babies arrival. ANGELINA JOLIE, mommy again for the forth time this week, rocked her post delivery body after the birth of SHILOH with a “THE BUN IS DONE” tee. Our favorite is the DAHLI MOMMA in chocolate brown. SAMSON MARTIN has been featured in PEOPLE and PREGNANCY magazine and now has a great line of yummy onesies for when your little babe is born. The “JUNK IN THE TRUNK” onesie is so funny and so true. Style and humor done just right. Go get sexy at www.samsonmartin.com.

Being a mom is many things. Some wonderful, some not so wonderful and thousands of crazy moments in between. Canadian author and journalist REBECCA ECKLER captures all these moments and then some in her book about life with a newborn, or “pint sized dictator ” as she so accurately puts it. Rebecca tells it like it is, warts and all. Anyone who has experienced those first few months of no sleep and, at times endless crying (both yours and the baby’s) will enjoy reading Rebecca’s take on how life changes after baby. I must admit I was skeptical after learning soon into the book that they hired a nanny to help out. However, that just made the situations she described so much more interesting and at times down right funny. We all know how difficult it is to connect and make small talk with a stranger. Just imagine that stranger in your home after you gave birth to a baby. Everyday. First thing in the morning. I couldn’t do it. Rebecca also captures a mom’s need to be with her baby and the need to do that even when out on a much needed date with your significant other (Remember? The reason you got into this in the first place). After reading this hilarious and true to life account of new motherhood, I also felt a little less guilty. Someone else puts their stroller into the sun while walking the baby to get them to close their eyes and go to sleep? I feel better knowing I’m not the only one. Thank you Rebecca.
Order a copy of Wiped: Life With A Pint-Sized Dictator here. Wait till your little dictator is napping and curl up with your book and a cup of tea.

It is so tempting to stay hidden under your husbands tees and wear jogging pants while pregnant. All you want is to be comfy while your body changes shape. There are days when a uniform of old sweats is a necessity. It’s also important to stay stylish and fabulous during those nine months. When you feel beautiful, your outlook changes and all the little annoyances that come along with pregnancy (endless bathroom trips, bottomless stomach, swollen feet) seem to fade away (at least for a little while!). Where do the celebrity mommies of Hollywood turn for a pregnancy fashion fix? CADEAU MATERNITY is where GWYNETH PALTROW, COURTENEY COX and JENNIFER GARNER got even more gorgeous and glowing while they were pregnant. CADEAU clothing is made in Italy with the most delicious fabrics and the best quality of workmanship. When you’re pregnant you need to treat yourself, go get yourself a little gift at CADEAU and feel like the yummy mummy you are. Go have a peek at www.cadeaumaternity.com

You’ll have style and comfort rolled into one when you own a onesie or yummy tee from b.delicious. Jennifer Talbot’s clothes for babies, toddlers and women feature hand cut ultra suede designs, appliqued onto super soft tees. All designs are hand made and one of a kind, so your kiddie is sure to be original and hip while playing hopscotch with her friends. The appliques come in all sorts of fantastic choices, such as gumballs, donuts, cupcakes and a wheelbarrel with flowers. Don’t despair you mommies of rough and tumble boys, b.delicious has tees for boys too that feature pliers, hammers and taxi cabs. We love that you can choose black as one of the colors for your tee, because kids are messy and black clothes hide the small disasters of the day. If you think their clothes are snazzy, then you need to see the slick packaging your tees come in. Just like a delicious bakery treat, they arrive in a sweet little bakery box. Perfect for a baby shower gift. We think b.delicious is going to be huge due to their original creations, attention to detail and their fab packaging. With KATIE HOLMES well known love of cupcakes and baby SURI’S first birthday coming up, TOM would be wise to pick up a onesie in pink with a yummy cupcake applique. You can thank me later Tommy.
