In honor of National Hat Day, I'm going to let you in on two little hat secrets of mine. I'm talking hats so spectacular, you will get stopped in the streets daily by people wanting to know where you got them.
With CMP-fave mimiTENS, the mittens stay on and the kids keep warm. Why? Because these Canadian-made mittens have a long, stretchy cuff that goes over a child's arm, keeping their mittens right where you want them.
It happens to us every year--mid-Winter hits and we realize that the fall jackets won't cut it, and last year's cheap parkas are now outgrown and looking ratty. This year we took the plunge over to what might be one of the best kids' winter coats ever.
I am definitely not one for gimmicky baby and new mom products that you really don't need. That's probably why you don't see a lot of stroller accessories on here, or stuff like the dreaded wipes warmer.
I remember once dressing my daughter like a mini-fashionista--just for a trip to the grocery store. Yeah, I was that mom. But hey, you have far better excuses for a fabulous baby girl outfit right now, like say 6 weeks worth of holiday visits?
It's getting cold outside for many of us--which means it's time to get back to the challenge of keeping our kids toasty warm. I don't know about you, but both of my children are absurdly picky when it comes to winter hats--if a hat is the slightest bit scratchy, forget about it.
It has always been a fight to persuade my children to keep their winter hats on their heads. Even when the sky is dumping snow, I find their hats behind the couch and stuffed in coat pockets--anywhere but on their poor freezing heads.
After taking the time to blow dry my mane, the last thing I want to do is pull on a claustrophobic thick wool hat and destroy all my hard work. So what?
Not every baby wants to jet about town covered in a glorified sleeping bag. Some may feel the need to be a little more stylish than that. For those baby hipsters, we've got just the solution for chilly days.
After a very generous stretch of unseasonably mild weather in New York, the freezing cold is here (sigh). Rather than pretend I live in LA, I have to take winter seriously this year since I have a new-ish baby to keep warm.
If you've got littler ones, and are tired of lost mitten syndrome--either because they don't stay on well, or because, well, kid lose mittens--7 A.M. Enfant has some wonderful solutions.
Boys need accessories. It really takes their outfits to another level. The trick is one or two key pieces that emphasize fun, comfort, and flavor.
I sometimes feel like my son's mittens are at war with me. I'm either always searching for one or trying to battle against my son's hands to put them on. Finally, an adorable pair of mittens that appreciate the hand to hand combat we moms have to face every winter.
Every winter, I spend no less than 30 minutes getting my son bundled and out the door. Now that I have a second baby to tend to, I'm really happy to have found a great stroller/carrier/car seat blanket that's a cinch to attach.
Whether I'm ready or not, it's officially fall, and the hats and scarves are starting to fill the stores, as I needed another reminder that cold weather is on its way.
My kids lose scarves and gloves like uh...well, like kids lose scarves and gloves. While I covet so many high end handmade options, I know I take quite a risk
One night this week, the cool air hit really for the first time, and I was struck with the horror that soon I would have to get the kids off to school with more than the backpacks on their backs.
I know what you're thinking-- Why is the Georgia girl recommending mittens? Because I'm the biggest sissy about cold, that's why. But I'm proud to say that we have three whole inches of snow right now.
If I'm going to go through the trouble of suiting up three kids to play in the snow, they had better stay out there for longer than it took me to get them dressed. But an armful of snow lodged in the wrist is a total bummer.
Woe to us parents whose kids start to outgrow their winter clothing in February, when stores are stocking their racks with sandals and sun dresses. Thank goodness the mama at Two Seaside Babes in Indiana is still crocheting her trÃ¨s cool Buckle Beanie Hats.
Growing up in the midwest, I endured some harsh winter mornings at the school bus stop. I gladly donned a heavy winter coat and warm mittens, but I drew the line at hats. Even though my mother was a talented knitter, she always tried to stick me in some goofy beanie. Talk about harsh.
We're all finally getting the message that sunscreen is not optional, particularly for the sensitive skin of little ones in our lives. But what about protecting those beautiful baby blues or greens or browns?
