My 10 Favorite Shopping Sites for Baby
I'm an insomniac. Whether this is by nature or because my baby won't let me sleep at night, I don't know. But I do know this, once I'm awake, I can't easily fall back to sleep, and so there's only one thing to do in the hours between 3 and 6 a.m.--online shopping. I've been known to make fantastic purchasing decisions in those early morning hours of total lucidity. Aside from tempting myself with buying things from Bigfoot footprint replicas to edamame-flavored Kit Kat bars, I get caught up on all the cute websites for baby goods. Here are 10 of my faves.

I am a big fan of comfy Splendid loungewear for myself, so I was super pumped when they introduced baby clothing. And it’s just as soft and comfy as the big girl stuff. The baby clothing is colorful, simple and (I know I’ve said it twice already) COMFORTABLE!

I love this Los Angeles based store for cool, laid-back yet hip clothing and accessories. Though it’s fun to shop in the store, I also enjoy perusing the baby section of the Kitson online to find things like unique t-shirts donning quirky sayings or funky fresh hats.

A friend sent my daughter a dress and leggings from Tea when she was a couple months old, and I was hooked on this clothing line which seeks design inspiration from cultures around the world. The clothing is practical, comfy, and fun as it uses a cool mix of lots of bold colors and patterns.

Zulily is a daily deal website for moms, kids and babies. Sort of like a Groupon, but instead of being offered questionable, discounted botox and endless tickets to Comedy Clubs, here you’ll find killer deals on baby clothing, toys and gear.

Diapers.com has EVERYTHING you need for your baby. I mean you could seriously sit on your couch with your computer and feed, clothe, bathe and entertain your baby with one, large order from this site. I’m trying to stick to just ordering diapers and formula so that I don’t just sit home eating bowl after bowl of cereal, avoiding sunlight, wearing a 5 o’clock shadow.

I live right across the street from a Right Start store. As if that’s not convenient enough, I still like to get on their website and browse their full collection of highly-rated baby gear, feeding supplies and toys. Wow, to see that typed makes me realize how lazy it makes me look. Perhaps I’d better move away from the store so that my online shopping there makes more sense.
You just can’t go wrong with buying baby clothes from H&M. It is adult-trend inspired clothing for extremely reasonable prices. And since going to an H&M location isn’t always easy when you’re lugging around a wiggly 10-month old, shopping at H&M online is the way to go. And it totally makes sense to add some things for yourself to that order. You know, to make the most of shipping.

This site’s goods are definitely uncommon and unbelievably fun. It’s baby section offers unusual (and some handmade) onesies, bibs, booties and lots of other super clever and creative accessories. Look at those fortune cookie booties! I mean, can you deal?

Fawn & Forest
Fawn & Forest states that its mission is good design for the entire family. This site is full of modern and eco-friendly baby products. It’s a must see site when designing baby’s nursery as it offers sleek and simple furniture, insanely cool mobiles and fun wall art and rugs. Hell, the website itself is so nice to look at, I’d frame it and put it on my wall.

In addition to its online presence, Giggle has stores throughout California, the East Coast and in Chicago, and is a popular baby registry location. Giggle prides itself on only choosing to sell the best products and therefore narrowing down your choices and saving you from hours of baby gear research. I like that. Research does not make me giggle.
The diaper bag is more than just a pretty bag with lots of pockets. It's a survival kit. A necessity. It's a right-hand man. It's like an extension of the mom to which it belongs. Like a best friend, that finishes your sentences for you. Perhaps my description is getting out of hand, but your diaper bag won't. Ever be out of your hand, that is. What I'm trying to say is that everything you need for baby is in that bag. And if you pack it with the right things, it can and will make your life so much easier. Here are 24 MUST HAVE items for your diaper bag.view gallery
