Is organic worth the extra expense? Maybe for myself it isn’t worth it, but for my tiny, helpless, little infant how could I not?
Conventional cotton is grown using high levels of agrochemicals. Organic cotton is a way for me to know that I’m not rolling the dice and taking risks on my baby’s […]
Who can’t help but be touched by the news from Japan’s enormous tsunami? The stories and pictures of suffering are difficult to comprehend. I am also moved by their stoicism – the Japanese people have stayed calm and cooperative in the face of so much devastation.
It reminds me of how the Japanese culture actually […]
Before my first son was born my husband and I read, “The Happiest Baby on the Block” by Harvey Karp, M.D. The major takeaway of this book was how to wrap or “swaddle” your baby perfectly in a blanket to soothe and cuddle him in a perfect bubble. My son was a fussy baby, and […]
We have our first samples back from our wonderful seamstress! We designed several onesies – short sleeve, long sleeve, kimono-neck and wide american neck, etc. We tried to stick with backward seams – which has been a challenge for our American-style. The last thing we want to do is spend all that effort to make […]
My first son was born in January. My second baby is due in June – meaning that it will be a completely different temperature outside. My first son wore almost exclusively sleepsuits during his first few months. But the second one will need light, comfortable onesies for the summer!
My secret joy in the summer […]
Being pregnant, I admit I have a lot to learn about the adventures ahead of me. I’m hoping to have a mostly natural pregnancy and to be able introduce mainly natural and organic products before and after my child is born (organic pregnancy products, organic baby clothes like organic onesies, organic baby food etc – […]
How could my second son be as possibly cute as my first son? Unbelievable. I have trouble seeing now how my heart could possibly grow big enough to love two little beings as much as I love one.
But I look forward to holding him in my arms and swaddling him in soft, natural, muslin […]
I can see the utility of kimono-style necklines for babies. Especially with my much-larger-than-average head of my first son, and the many, many struggles we had to put onesies on him, I should be weeping with joy when first seeing kimono-style necklines and how easy they would be to put on a baby. But I […]
Let’s face it – mothers have more leeway to dress up their baby girls than their baby boys. My husband is not a macho guy, but he finds it hard to stomach me putting bright colors or (gasp) leg warmers on my baby boy. It even took several weeks to convince him that a yellow […]
What color palette makes the most sense for a line of baby clothes? Traditional baby clothes were simple – white, blue, pink and maybe a green or yellow. Many of the more current brands use bold, unisex colors – orange, brown, purple. We are leaning towards the latter.
Non-toxic dyes are important to us, however […]
