Mom & KidsNununu – Live on the Edge

starStreet smart. Avant-garde. Bold. These aren’t usually words I’d use to describe a line for the younger set, but Nununu‘s innovative designs can take on a stroll through the East Village and still stand out as cool. I myself am partial to jumpers in all seasons and day-to-night, and this Long Star Romper is boldly stamped with oversized stars to make a statement. The black print on white is a eye-catching sharp contrast, while the soft 100% cotton and elastic waistband and hem keep it comfortable. Kids are always on the move, and the stars morph into shooting stars as they whiz past! Snap buttons are well-placed and make the romper a practical choice for easy-on and off. Pockets always turn up some surprises at the end of the day (lizard, anyone?), and the slanted placement blend them seamlessly into the design.

Mom & KidsFollowing Featherbottom

featherIt’s always a challenge to find the perfect gift for the new family who already has everything they need, especially because I like to keep it unique and personal. So when a very special newborn arrived this summer, I went on a search for the perfect gift which would be personal and a keepsake. The whimsical story of Felix Featherbottom and his sidekick Pierre du Pond chronicles their adventures flying all over the world, trying to find the letters of the new addition’s name. From an A in Antarctica to a Z in Zimbabwe, Featherbottom takes us on a trip which goes through cities, countries, and regions of the world, inspiring baby to get a passport. The best part is that from newborn to toddler, the book is a favorite because of the remarkable illustrations and colorful letters of the alphabet spelling the child’s name. Even babies enjoy rhymes and rhythm, and the witty one-liners will inevitably coax out that smile. By the time their first birthday comes around, babies already have all the sounds needed to speak their native language! The more they are read aloud to, the better and faster their own speech will come. I’d found that it’s a lot of fun to reference the locations of each letter with its place on a globe, with a starting point of home sweet home.

These cute tyke Mary Janes have fondly been nicknamed “playground shoes” by their pint-sized owner. The Umi brand has thought through everything a toddler and parent could want in a shoe- a generous fit even for chubby feet, easy on-and-off, nonslip stable rubber outsoles, and cute details like this cheerful daisy. Durability and longevity get high ratings for the Cassia shoe considering its top quality materials and workmanship, so these shoes will survive many playground playdates.

Mom & KidsElks & Angels Cuddle Bear

Elks--Angels-Cuddle-Bear-in-ButtermilkTraveling this summer has been a blast- especially since our little lady loves hotels and planes. It’s amusing to see her zip through a new hotel room, exploring bedding and examining toiletries (could this be passed along genetically?). The one thing that’s always a comfort when away from home is a lovey, and her Elks and Angels Cuddle Bear has racked up more frequent flier miles than any other! Made of Australian sheepskin, the high quality softness is instantly addictive. I love it because it’s flat, light and easy to pack, and the natural properties of the sheepskin regulate body temperature whether it’s cool or hot! It’s also naturally anti-bacterial hypoallergenic, so I don’t have to worry as much about picking up germs.

Mom & KidsAppaman Kid Fashion

homepage_slider_2_catalog_boygirlI have endless fun dressing up my toddler, maybe because she can take the fashion risks that I’ve always dreamed of, and her exuberant personality can hang with the coolest designs. Her creative closet is now oozing street cred thanks to fabulous kids’ line Appaman. It’s named after Norwegian designer Harald Husum’s childhood chum, a corduroy ape! Appaman lets imaginations fly, because with a name like that, only adventuresome clothes can be showcased. The pieces tell stories of traveling through imagination, discovering fields and fjords, and celebrating the bond between best friends. Isn’t it great being a kid?

Mom & KidsSnuggle up with Aden + Anais

8062_1-classic-sleeping-bag-up-up-awayThe transition to summer is always an exciting one in our household, between sunny afternoons by the pool, beach trips, and yummy barbeques. Sleeping in warmer weather is a little trickier though, because it can be either too hot or too cold, and I’m contantly adjusting the thermostat in the middle of the night. For my little one, Aden+Anais has the perfect solution to summer slumber, a super lightweight Classic Sleeping Bag. It allows a breathable and comforting layer to stay on all night without restricting moderate movement. I’ve raved about the signature muslin before, and have yet to find anything even comparable. It really does get softer with every wash! I just zip the bag over her diaper and pajama top and she’s snug as a bug all night.

Eco & Organic, Mom & KidsSkylar Luna Sleepwear

anchorsPajamas by definition should be fun, and I love thinking outside the box with colors and designs. On rainy days (or even lazy sunny ones), we play inside all day in our PJ’s staying warm and cozy whether sculpting with playdoh or building skyscrapers. Skylar Luna makes the softest eco-friendly pajamas in bright designs ranging from bright California pinks to my favorite, an anchors-away nautical theme for imagining exotic voyages by sea. Made from 100% organic cotton, the stylish sleepwear is designed to be the ultimate in comfort for small bodies to move around while staying safe. I’ve been spoiled with the quality of the pajamas, as the cotton weave holds up over repeated washes, but remains soft and breathable. The fit is just right, not too tight or irritating like other brands can be, which is so important for a solid night’s sleep!

Mom & KidsZen Swaddle

swaddleThe Zen Swaddle

By Nested Bean, $39.99

I’m still smiling from Mother’s Day memories, it’s always a sweet time of year to relish the special relationship that can never be replicated. As I think back to the exciting time when I first became a mom, I  remember rushes of love and discovery punctuated by extreme fatigue. Nested Bean is making that time a little more restful with the Zen Swaddle, a perfect gift for a new mom. The cute velcro-secured wrap makes swaddling simple and effective with its patent-pending weighted patch which rests on baby’s chest to reassure the little one that mom is closeby (while she catches up on some rest!). The high-quality construction and design of the swaddle can last through multiple siblings, and the adorable designs are contemporary and irresistible. I love that the swaddle is 2 sizes in 1, with a smaller pouch to keep baby’s feet secure for the first few weeks, then accommodates up to 29″ in length with an arms-out option.
