It wasn’t until pregnancy #2 that I really put some time into planning and researching fun and trendy baby gear. With my first, I didn’t find out the gender, so I really had no motivation to find the best of the best stuff because everything had to be gender neutral….blah.
Knowing baby #2 is another girl is so much fun because I get to shop and personalize things before she’s even here. My husband is starting to question and get irritated by all of the packages of baby stuff that arrive sometimes on a daily basis. But, I just remind him that this is my right as a nesting, pregnant mom.
I’ve rounded up some of the trendy, unique, fun, and funky baby gear I’ve found across the world of Instagram and Etsy. Please share your best baby buys!
1.) Solly Baby Wraps have been all over the mom blogs and mom IG’s that I follow. My BFF over at My Plot of Sunshine used one for her daughter and was a personal testimonial for how awesome these baby wearing wraps are.
2.) LouLou Lollipop creates the cutest teething rings, necklaces, and bracelets. The colors are very pleasing to the eye and I love the wood elements in some of her pieces as well.
3.) Free Babes is the bow to have if you have a baby girl. They range in sizes and colors and the patterns are one-of-a-kind. I am still eagerly waiting for my Candy Kirby collab bows to come in the mail!
4.) Binxy Baby are the best invention ever. Instead of lugging around a huge car seat and having no space in the cart for groceries, the baby hangs in a little hammock over the cart. I’m waiting for the adult size one to come out, because I want someone to cart my ass around in a hammock at the grocery store.
5.) Milk Snob car seat covers are not your typical “momish” car seat covers. They are the creators of the famous Paparazzi covers and the best part is they double as nursing covers. The fabric is light and breathable so there’s no sweaty baby issues.
6.) Little Unicorn is famous for their unique and just gorgeous swaddles, and their diaper bags are top notch as well. I have the Rotunda and my next purchase will be the tote.
7.) Little Sunhat makes to-die-for hats for babes of all ages. I can not get enough of the little poof ball on top of the winter hats and the fabric designs are modern and fun. Again, waiting for an adult size hat.
8.) Mon Petit Shoes branches out of the typical baby moccasin and offers more unique and classic show styles that still have the moccasin feel. Your baby will look so dapper in these little shoes.
9.) Mint and Arrows swaddlers have a huge selection of fun fabrics to choose from, and you won’t find the super functional cocoon design anywhere else.
10.) Madly Wish…I drool over her creations. Her blanket, sheets, and changing cover selection is on point- modern, trendy, unique, and cute. She even designs her own fabrics. Her work has been featured in magazines and is loved by the celebrity crowd too.
