clothes for newborns

Great Baby Clothes Online.

Our daughter gave birth to twins yesterday in San Francisco – and I am NOT THERE.  I am having fun shopping ‘virtually’ for the twins, a boy and a girl.  There are new, small, wonderful designers online and I have also gone back to some classic favorites.  Even if you don’t have a new baby – these are appealing, and it is fun to focus on new life.

Louelle has studios in New York and Melbourne.  Louelle aims to create ‘everyday luxury’ for children with high quality, breathable, soft fabrics.  They work in a sustainable way.

This luxurious Italian cotton sleeping bag fabric is called Harbor Island Stripe. The outer fabric is 100% soft, breathable cotton and the inner fabric is 100% cotton jersey lining. The fill is polyester.  The side-zip closure opens out flat to allow for easy nappy/diaper change.  Back press studs are designed to enable the sleeping bag to grow as children grow.  Louelle Sleep Sacks in a variety of sizes, weights and colors.  $135.

These Louelle Gingham cornered towels are white, double-sided terry fabric with a dusty pink or pink gingham fabric trim.  100% cotton. 29.5” x 29.5”.  Each Hooded towel and wash glove | Dusty pink or blue gingham.  $59.  Monogram available for an additional $20.

Petite Plume makes classic children’s pajamas in a cotton/poly blend so they’re light and airy. They have a generous fit. The short pajamas come in several patterns, $48.  Long sleeves and legs, $58, Nightgown $48.

Albetta is a British brand which sells on the Maisonette website.  I love these all-cotton onesies with crochet ducks or stripes with a lion. On sale for $33.50

Jacadi and Roberta Roller Rabbit are not new to baby clothes, but they are such favorites of mine that I have included them.  I love almost everything Jacadi makes.  Their stores have ‘eye-candy’ for grandmothers!  These newborn and infant footed pajamas and jumpsuits are $49 to $59.  100% Cotton.
