Now that Holiday season is upon us, it’s time for moms and dads to get practical about travel. How are you going to cart all of baby’s needs from the airport to your fabulous beach resort, and do it in style? We’ve had the pleasure of trying out LILLY GOLD’S Nap-Sac, a busy mom’s best friend. It’s a deluxe diaper bag, change station and bassinet all rolled into one…how genius. Perfect for the world traveling family, or the on-the-go new parents on your Christmas list. Love the funky zebra pattern and cool black shade (comes in a snazzy red too). We’ve found it makes visiting friends with the baby less stressful…now you have a bassinet to let baby drift off in while you get to relax and enjoy another cup of tea (or Shiraz).

It takes a lot to “wow” us here at Celeb Baby Clothes, and our latest find has done just that! THE BEAN NEW YORK has all the style and brands we love, and top notch service too. It’s this time of year that I dread the malls and the crazy frenzy of desperate shoppers trying to find the perfect gift. Why go to all that trouble when you could be sitting down at your computer, warm latte in hand, baby cozy warm in their bassinet, and you doing all your baby Christmas shopping. No muss, no fuss. They carry a very well thought out selection of baby clothes that show the owner’s chic sense of style and eye for fresh new finds. While picking up a few gifts, we think you should add their signature Bean New York Tee to your shopping bag…so sweet and it makes a fabulous stocking stuffer. Check out their celeb worthy selection at www.beannewyork.com
Those Aussies always get it right. They simply make superior baby products. We are loving our latest Aussie find, that’s finally available to us North American mommies. ADEN + ANAIS makes the much buzzed about Australian Muslin Baby Wraps. These baby blankets and wraps are made of soft breathable muslin cotton. They keep baby warm without overheating and feel super snuggly and soft against baby’s skin. I’ve already tossed my too small, too difficult to wrap synthetic blankets in the bin. It’s muslin all the way for me mommies. I’m an official blanket snob. Celeb mommies that wrap their babe’s up in ADEN + ANAIS are NAOMI WATTS, TORI SPELLING, and JULIA ROBERTS. We also dig their super yummy towels and bath clothes. Stylish patterns and lovely shades, these wraps will make your hectic mommy days manageable and chic. Check out www.adenandanais.com, and you can thank us later.
We all have one in the corner of our living room or family room…just sitting there looking out of place. Playpens, or play yards as some like to call them are a fact of life when you have a baby. It keeps them safe when mommy needs to focus on something else, and it’s a great place for an afternoon snooze. Why do they have to be so boring and uninspired? I want a playpen with bold colors one day and neutral tones to match my space the next. I’m tired of “Graco Blue”. Thank goodness for the stylish playpen covers at COVERPLAYARD, a fabulous company that has changed the way my living room looks and feels. These soft, and machine washable slipcovers keep baby safe from germs and mommy safe from an un-stylish room. Celeb mommies SELMA HYACK and NAOMI WATTS are sprucing up their fabulous homes with these chic slipcovers. Perfect for travel when you want to cover up the hotel’s playpen.

If we have to spend the next few months all bundled up and protected from the harsh winter weather, we should do it with flare and style. The best accessory to add pizazz to your tots winter wardrobe is a fabulous hat. Take a peek at the scrumptious creations at ZOONI. Could they be any more stylish? Love the colors and designs…so original and different from what you’ll find at your local shop. Our favorite? Has to be KATE’S MOSS …beautiful bold green and such a cheeky name. Our little bean looks sweet in her FLOWER POWER hat. The pink really brightens up these dreary cold days. These handmade, celeb worthy hats are a snowy day necessity. Sent to celebrity mommies KATIE, GWYNETH , and HEIDI, you’ll be seeing these hip hats pop up all over the place on their fashionable tots. Stay warm and chic at www.zooniwear.com
A stylish bib is just as important as a fabulous wardrobe. How else are you going to keep baby fashionably clean? Covering up babe’s Burberry dress with an unworthy bib is just nonsense. You need something just as special. We love the fresh designs from DA BIB, and have been using their gorgeous and functional bibs ever since they arrived. They come in two styles : HUGS, made of microfiber terry with a waterproof back, and GIGGLES, a waterproof bib that easily wipes clean. Both styles come in yummy designs and colors and both have a fabulous scrunch collar that keeps your tot’s neckline clean…no more tossing baby’s white tee’s out after a messy lunch. No wonder celeb mommies snatched them up at the Primetime Emmy Gift Suite. Protect your wee ones stylish clothes with DA BIBS brilliant bibs at www.dabib.com
When you’re expecting a bundle of joy, comfort comes first. What about looking fabulous? Things are changing ladies….now you can have style with your comfort. We are no longer slaves to over sized, ill fitting maternity apparel sold in big box stores. We found a fabulous Canadian company that makes chic maternity clothes that also keep you comfy. KO MATERNITY, based and produced in the fabulous Montreal (Paris without the jet leg), makes clothes that will appeal to all you fashion conscious mommies-to-be. We love their breathable, stretchy fabrics and flattering cuts. The dress we pictured above also comes in a brilliant shirt version that looks absolutely stunning. KO MATERNITY steps it up by being sweatshop free and donates a percentage of it’s profits to women in need. How perfect is that? Get some maternity style (and comfort) at www.komaternity.com
To truly dress your child in style, you need to be as eco friendly as possible. Celeb mommies have been dressing their tots in environmentally conscience clothes for years. GWYNETH PALTROW and MICHELLE WILLIAMS (can you believe Heath broke up with her?) are two chic mommies that do just that and it’s time this trend caught on with us everyday folk. You can start by checking out the artistically designed tees and onesies at BABY GREENS, a company that hand prints water based inks onto organic clothing. We love the nature theme to their funky designs. The bright colors really pop and brighten up these cold winter days we’re all getting too used to. Our favorite tee has to be the Surya. Looks fabulous with a pair of gray cords and a fuzzy red winter hat. So go ahead and copy all those fashionable celeb mommies, and dress your stylish child in eco friendly tees at — sorry their site is down
What mommy hasn’t read Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? And how about The Hungry Caterpillar? I could read those two in my sleep, and probably have. We’re so excited that Kids Preferred has designed soft plush toys that let our little one hug and squeeze all her favorite Eric Carle characters. Our favorite? Hands down it has to be the super soft and wiggly caterpillar. Story time is a theatrical event now, with our tot acting out the story. Love it. For all you mommies of tiny babies, the Butterfly Pullstring Musical Toy is fantastic…gorgeous colors and cuddly soft. Makes a brilliant Christmas gift when paired with one of Eric’s timeless books. Check out FAO SCHWARZ, our favorite spot for toy shopping, and celebrity spotting (and they make a fabulous lunch!) to see all of these amazing characters : www.fao.com
Now that Halloween is long gone and the only reminders are the empty candy wrappers and extra five pounds we’ve gained, it’s time to think about baby’s Holiday wardrobe. You know what you want your baby to wear this Thanksgiving and Christmas, but do you know what shoes you’ll get to match? Ditch the boring black matte and have a look at the Princessa sparklers at VINCENT SHOES. So shimmery and available in bold festive shades. We love our pair in gold, but pink looks super hip too. These shoes will catch all the lights of the Christmas tree and keep your toddler dancing the night away at your Holiday soirée. The velcro closure and leather interior makes these party shoes a mommy favorite. VINCENT SHOES are found on the stylish feet of GWYNETH PALTROW’S son and KATE WINSLET’S little tots…not bad company if we do say so ourselves. Get your party shoe on at www.vincentshoestore.com
