Shopping with Babes & Babies

I spent much of my Saturday browsing the Babes & Babies shopping event with baby Sloane in tow. The event was put on by Appel & Frank and was conveniently only a five minute walk from my house. Dozens of local entrepreneurs were able to show off their products and it is always fun chatting to new parents about Project Nursery. It never seizes to amaze me how new products are constantly being created to make life easier for the hip and modern parent. Aside from snagging samples for Sloane from baby food favorite, Plum Organics, I noticed lots of trendsetting companies in graphic apparel for babies and kids. Here’s a few stand outs that caught my attention.

Created in San Francisco, made in the USA, Colette Kids is a collection of hip, vibrant unisex designs for infants, toddlers and kids. They aim to create non-gender specific designs that can be shared amongst siblings. Made of ultra soft 100% USDA certified organic cotton and 100% baby jersey cotton, all the clothing is screen-printed by hand. Besides all the cute animal apparel Colette Kids also makes hats, bibs and even Animal Art prints for the nursery or kids’ room.

Nohi Kids is celebrating small! They know that little ones should be celebrated and they do it in an chic way by creating comfortable, high quality, and eco-friendly clothes that appeal to both kids and their parents. All products are made from Bamboo which is a renewable and sustainable fiber. Nohi Kids is that favorite dress or tee shirt that your child won’t take off and the clothing is durable enough to hold up wash after wash. This means they can be passed-down to the next lucky kid! Use code “nursery20” at check out and enjoy 20% off!

I’m not sure if the coolest thing about Diaper Rash Clothing is their San Francisco themed onesies or the fact that they donate one diaper to a mother in need through the Help A Mother Out (HAMO) program every time a product is sold. I just love the soft and bright baby onesies with local iconic images like the Golden Gate Bridge or cable car. Right now Diaper Rash Clothing is only sold in boutiques around the bay area but they hope to launch nationwide soon. They even want to create designs that represent other great US cities like New York, Chicago and Miami. We’ll keep you posted!

Oh, I wish we had something like this where I live. It would be so nice to check out all the goods. But then again, it might not be good for my pocket ;)

I wish I could have been there. I would have had a grand time walking from booth to booth!

I'm sold on the simplicity of Colette Kids' animal art shirts and prints, but I really like to comfy looking garbs of Nohi! Actually, it's very difficult to choose!
