Hollywood’s cute kids brigade is about to get a little bigger with the summer arrival of Sarah Jessica Parker’s twins. Are those two gonna be the best dressed little girls or what?
I love shopping for my baby girl and Glam Slam’s Mommy-to-be week continues with a few of my favorite kids things.
I am obsessed with kids outfits that are HIP rather than annoyingly baby-ish. I like things that I would actually wear. And that’s why I’m a big fan of the fun, brightly colored kids lines from Michael Stars and Splendid. Suri Cruise and Violet Affleck wear SPLENDID LITTLES. www.splendid.com Jessica Alba and Tori Spelling’s kids have MIKEY STARS. www.michaelstars.com.
Pop culture addicts will love the onesies and tees from BABY FISH MOUTH. Nicole Richie’s little Harlow has a tee from the brand, which cleverly tweaks famous movies lines from “The Godfather” to “Titanic” to “Star Wars” - “May the formula be with you.” www.bfmwear.com.
We got so many blankets as gifts and it’s a good thing because you use a lot of them. My baby girl got two blankets from LITTLE GIRAFFE and she’s in good company - Salma Hayek, Christina Aguilera and Ashlee Simpson’s kids all have them as well. If you are ever looking for the perfect baby shower gift - this is it! www.littlegiraffe.com
Harlow’s very favorite blankie is from the celeb fave lifestyle line PUELLA. It’s not your typical girl’s baby blanket - it’s a funky fuschia! Unfortunately, I just learned they are not making the kids line anymore! So here is my shout out to Puella - Please bring back your kids stuff - we LOVE it all! (FYI - there are still some Puella Petit kids clothes available at www.puellagirl.com).
OOPS! SHE DID IT AGAIN!
I had no idea you would need so many burp cloths and the cutest ones I got are the monogrammed ones from EM&BEE. Nicole Kidman’s baby, Sunday Rose, has a few goodies from this line of simple and chic baby clothes and accessories handmade by two moms. www.emandbee.com
IT’S IN THE BAG
Having more than one diaper bag ready to go at all times keeps the sanity in our house. My husband uses his guy approved Diaper Dude and I have a BUTLER BAG. Technically it isn’t a diaper bag at all, which is why I like it. Hilary Duff and Cheryl Hines are two stars who have a Butler, which the company calls “the world’s most organized handbag.” It has many compartments which make it perfect for keeping bottles, diapers, etc. organized. www.butlerbag.com
Good things come in small packages and that’s why I keep a BabyBeReady bag by BABYDISH in my car for emergencies. This Diaper Bag Survival Kit is the only pre-packed diaper bag with baby’s first year essentials like diapers, wipes, a changing pad and extra outfit. I can just throw it in my Balenciaga bag and go. Genius! No wonder stars like Heidi Klum, Angelina Jolie and Matt Lauer are fans. www.babydish.com
SKIN SO SOFT
Soft as a baby’s bottom the old saying goes. And to keep my baby’s skin that way, I don’t want to use harsh ingredients. CALIFORNIA BABY, a natural care brand for babies and children, it is loved by moms from Halle Berry to Cindy Crawford to Courteney Cox. I am digging the Calming Shampoo & Bodywash. www.californiababy.com
I have been a fan of BURT’S BEES Products for years, but now I’ve hijacked Harlow’s Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Apricot Baby Oil because it smells so yummy. All of the products are free of petrochemicals and synthetic ingredients. www.burtsbees.com
