Eco-Babyz 2013 Holiday Gift Guide: BABY



Can you believe it's almost November? Have you started your holiday shopping yet? We wanted to share with you some brands, products, and businesses that we love and use ourselves that you may want to consider too! These are hand picked items that you will not find on the "Best Toys of the Year" lists, kids only play with those for a few hours anyway. Here are some practical, high quality gifts and some places you can find more. We will have four Gift Guides and today we're starting off with BABY!

______________________________________________________________
POMONA PANTS


Hands down the best fitting pants Baby T owns are his Pomona Jeans! He has been wearing them since April several times a week! With the fold down cuffs and adjustable snap waist, they will easily fit him for another half a year. So there, 18 months of wear for one pair of super awesome Pomonas. I definitely wouldn't hesitate to spend less than $30 on these amazing pants. They have so many styles to choose from, and shorts too. Best of all, they have a superb fit on any diaper, cloth or disposable, we love the Trim Fit ones! It even fits on the bulkiest diapers we have.

ZUTANO


Looking for baby and toddler clothing that stands up to the rigors of babyhood? Zutano makes clothing for newborns through 4T and it's made to last through wash after wash, to the point it will still look great to pass down to siblings. The fun, vibrant colors, prints, and designs are a favorite of both parents and kids. Baby E and Baby T have a few Zutano pieces and they are some of their favorite clothing to wear because they are just so comfortable!

WEE CAN TOO

Have you ever wished that art supplies were edible as you watched your baby lick their fingers after finger painting or nibble on a crayon? Then you must check out Wee Can Too Art Supply! Finally a safe way for baby to explore textures and get creative. My kids love their sidewalk chalk and we've used the finger paint before. They also have tempera paints and veggie egg dye. Prices range from $12 to $35.

KNOTS by BELLARINA


Custom made knitwear can make a wonderful gift and heirloom and I highly recommend Knots by Bellarina for any of your crochet fantasies. Whatever you have in your head, the talented shop owner can make come to life. The shop doesn't have any ready-to-ship options, but now is a great time to order custom in advance. She recently sent us some newborn photography props and you'll see more of it on Eco-Babyz! The photo on the left is from a recent photo session.

ERGOBABY

I don't think I even need to introduce ERGObaby, I'm sure you're familiar with them. The original soft-structured baby carrier is also a great gift - but not just for baby! Mom will love it just as much, having her hands free. They also have a nice variety - organic carriers, travel carriers, and even the new swaddlers. I've used our ERGObaby carrier with both children, I purchased it in like-new condition locally. It has served us well and still practically looks like new 5 years later! I think it's ready for another baby...

 BOBA

This carrier brand is a close competitor of the one mentioned above, but Boba does have subtle differences. The Boba Carrier 3 G can actually convert to an infant carry without an infant insert, it has convenient purse strap holder and storage pockets on the waist belt. There are also removable foot straps that are great for toddler to rest their feet on. We had a chance to try it out in person and loved it!

MAGIC BEANS

Now if you want a really vast selection of quality toys and gear, you might want to check out Magic Beans. I love that this store is actually local to me, they are Boston based. But their online selection is huge and they often have great sales going on. Like right now you can get a Baby Jogger City Select Stroller with a free second seat! Or a City Mini with free car seat adapter.

SOFTBABY

Dreaming of super soft, natural clothing for baby? Well of course Softbaby is exactly what you are looking for. This clothing line is designed in New York and made from certified organic cotton with original patterns. While conventional cotton is loaded with pesticides, you can feel safer putting baby in Softbaby clothing that's easy on their skin.


______________________________________________________________

WOOLINO

High quality wool products for baby can be hard to find. If you read my blog, I'm sure you've heard of Woolino and how much we love this brand! We have their pajamas and sleep bag and we absolutely love it. Merino is naturally breathable (no sweating), hypoallergenic, fire retardant, soil resistant, and much more. The sleep bag allows for easy transfer between car and bed and it even grows with your baby, making the most out of your investment. It's a must-have I recommend to anyone who wants better sleep for baby, which is better sleep for you!

  12. Awesome! So many wonderful ideas. I love the pants! My daughter was born 11 weeks early and although she is 18 months she is only wearing 6 month clothing. Sometimes finding her clothes can be a bit of an issue. Having a pair of pants that would last a long while would be awesome! Thanks for putting this together. :)
