Kids

I confess, I don’t put jeans on Wesleigh often. I want her to stay looking like a baby, not a “girl”  and jeans make little ones look too grown up! Until of course I found the perfect fit (just like us all no?!)…

Boyfriend jeans are SO cute on babies. They are a little tattered and torn, which reminds us that ‘kids are kids’ and their jeans will get ripped. It seems more playful than regular skinny jeans, and not so stuffy. In all honesty, these little chubbers are too squished in skinny jeans!

Do you put jeans on your babes? Which brands do you like?

Wesleigh is wearing a Rylee and Cru shirt, Baby Gap jeans (similar-you can get this exact pair in the store still)  Trust necklace, and Zuzii shoes

Ok yes, Wesleigh is getting a little big to “baby wear” but she did say “weeee” the first time I tried this amazing baby wearing coat on from B&ME ! I think she likes it! My only regret, is not getting this coat sooner. It’s SO perfect for little ones on cold New England days.

If you are trying to look stylish this winter, and baby wear. You should most definitely check out this coat by B&Me. You can wear it while pregnant, with baby, and without baby. Definitely one of my favorite finds!

Baby wearing is one of the most amazing things you can do with, and for your new (or older) baby. When I was pregnant with Luke I did a ton of research on which carriers to buy, and SO much had changed by the time Wesleigh was born. There are different carriers that I think work for different age groups. Here are my favorites below.

For Newborns: For newborn babies I love the Solly Baby wrap. It’s perfect for breast feeding too.

For Babies 6+ Months: The Ergo is a carrier I still use for Wesleigh. She is 24 lbs and I can still wear her in the front without hurting my neck or back.

For Toddlers: The Osprey baby pack is perfect for toddlers, and babies who are 8 months and up. The perfect hiking pack!

The Details: B&Me coat, Ergo 360 carrier, Anthropologie head wraps, Zuzii shoes, and AG jeans (on sale!) and Photography by Lisa from Lisa Elizabeth Images

The Best Baby Carriers

I got a ton of questions on my last “hand-me-down” post asking how I saved, and stored Luke’s baby clothing for Wesleigh. I have 3 simple steps to preserving baby clothing below. Check out Wesleigh wearing Luke’s baby gap knit sweater from 10 years ago…

Wesleigh is wearing: a hand me down sweater (similar here), Baby Gap jeans, Ralph Lauren shoes, Oeuf Scarf -out of stock but I like these ones, and is carrying her Hazel Village bunny.

Three Steps to Preserving Baby Clothes:

1. Decide Which Pieces to Save: I save only the clothing without baby stains. That means going through, and deciding which pieces are the most important, have sentimental value, but that are also stain-free. Stains become even more predominant over time, the yellows will only get more yellow. I don’t typically save jeans, onsies, shoes or any stained clothing. I do save sweaters, knits, scarves, and rompers. The rest I donate.

2. Remove Stains and Wash: If there is anything with a small stain but still worth saving, I use baking soda and water, or a Tide Stick to remove the stain. I wash all the clothing with dye-free baby laundry soap, and dry with all natural dryer sheets. *I fold everything properly before I store it to save myself the time of sifting though all the clothes when I need them.

3. Storing the Clothes: Use an opaque and air tight storage bins. You don’t want to buy the clear plastic bins because light can get to the clothes, and discolor them. I made this mistake with some of Luke’s clothing because I thought it would be easier to see the it through the side, but those items faded over time. I use these bins for everything. I store my bins in a (finished) basement closet, but any dark and cool place works.

TIP: If you have anything that is white, such as a blouse, dress, romper, or Christening gown, get this preserved by a professional. Most dry cleaning services offer this. White dress material yellows- ie. Luke’s Christening romper (wah!).

Hope these tips help! Happy Storing!
