March 17th is quickly approaching and, with it, the mad dash to find something green to ward off St. Patrick’s Day pinches. Bring on the luck of the Irish with these great products for both you and baby!
Deck baby out in a super comfortable Lime Bodysuit from AXL Brand. Made from 100% organic cotton, these onesies sport a stylish, classic look that’s perfect for any occasion. Thoughtful in design, AXL apparel is free of scratchy tags and connects with nickel-free snaps. Being from San Francisco, I also love that AXL is based right here in the city with all products made in the USA. $27.99 from www.axlbrand.com.
Want to dial the cute factor up a notch? Pair your AXL apparel with a Bandana Bib from Poncho Baby. With four layers of soft muslin cotton, it provides good protection against food and drool, while being very breathable and easy to wash. Emerald on one side and three options of complimentary colors on the other, you can easily turn the bib around for a new look. Two sets of snaps are ideal for your growing baby and give you room for adjustment. $12 from www.ponchobaby.com.
Next, give baby something to snuggle with Little Giraffe’s Chenille Baby Blanket and Little G Plush Toy. Soft, fluffy chenille, trimmed with a matching green satin edge, make this receiving blanket a favorite. Easy to carry around at 29” x 35” and available in Celadon Green, this is one blanket you won’t want to be without on March 17th. Add a super squeezable Little G Plush Giraffe to give baby a friend to cuddle. Inspired by Little Giraffe’s Luxe Dot fabric, Little G is covered with spots in the color…green! $69 (Baby Blanket) and $45 (Plush Giraffe) from www.littlegiraffe.com.
Now, you did think we’d leave mom out of the fun, did you? Switch out your diaper bag for a beautiful timi & leslie Marie Antoinette Diaper Bag in Emerald. This is the perfect bag if you’re looking for one that’s fully functional while being a fabulously fashionable bag. This bag is so stylish that I’ve even considered using it as a purse following my diaper bag-toting days. Made of quilted nylon, it easily wipes clean while also being amazingly light at only 2-1/4 pounds, including a generous number of accompanying accessories. Items thoughtfully included for baby: insulated bottle holder, changing mat with a mesh pouch to hold diapers and wipes, and wet bag to hold dirty diapers. Items even more thoughtfully included for mom: small clutch to hold all the essentials (credit cards, wallet and phone) and a key fob, so you never lose your keys. The Marie Antoinette bag is spacious with pouches and zippered sections to keep items organized and two external pouches for bottles. It closes with a magnetic snap, making it easy to reach in and grab items with one hand at any time. In addition, this bag comes with stroller straps and an adjustable shoulder strap to give you plenty of options for carrying your bag. $169.99 at www.timiandleslie.com.
And, one more treat for mom! The classy Lauren Wallet in Mint from Hobo is made from top-grain leather and has compartments to neatly hold your bills, coins and cards. The interior material changes design by season, so be surprised by a fun confetti lining or the newest pattern specially chosen by the Hobo designers. Wallet measures 8.5” x 5” x 1” and includes both zippered and clasp compartments. Great for carrying around as a clutch or for stashing in a larger purse. $110 at www.hobobags.com.
