in love with boutique shops for baby


brittany marchese


​I remember just 2 years ago when I was pregnant with my son, I ordered a couple things on Etsy–but still Instagram wasn’t that big yet and it was mainly just ordering from the big companies if you wanted cute swaddles or anything unique for baby. This time around my world has changed. Give me all the personalized swaddles and bibdanas within reach.

I find something new every day that baby Carson just absolutely needs. The stuff I have gotten for him, you can’t just find in your local big box baby store. You will find these items on Etsy, family owned websites, and Instagram. I’m loving the new must haves that social media has brought us.



There is one thing that I cannot get enough of when I am expecting, and that is—clothes. I just can’t get over the adorable stuff out there that comes in such tiny sizes. These clothes are from Finn and Emma and are organically made with eco friendly dyes. I love that I know where these are coming from, and that there are no chemicals involved. ​I also love to make a statement with my kid’s clothes with a cute graphic tee or onesie.  I especially adore  this one from our She Is Blank Space store as it puts into words how we feel about our kids.
Long Sleeve Shirt & Pants, $23, $22 ​Finn and Emma 15% off $50 orders
Fearfully & Wonderfully Made Succulent Onesie$22.50 She Is Blank Space SIBSBABY10 for 10% off



Hats are a must when baby is born. Especially if born in a cold month like my little one. Not only are they important for the cold months, they are very important to help a newborn maintain their temperature. These hats can easily add style to your little ones new wardrobe. 
Motorcycle Hat, monthly subscription boxes $25-85 Buccio Baby MAMA20 for 20% off
Monogram Hat, $11.99 After Sunset Creations TAKE15ASC for 15% off

Robot Hat, $14 Finn and Emma Take 15% off $50
Paneled Cap, $26 Kinship Cap Co


I’m honestly not quite sure how many muslin swaddles I bought when I was pregnant with Bennett two years ago. It’s embarrassing, sort of. I didn’t buy nearly as many this time as I had kept all the ones from before. I did however receive these adorable cotton swaddles–and how cute is this one with his name printed on it?! They have so many different options for style, font, type of blankets–you have to take a look yourself!

Drool. It kinda just starts overnight. Then you think, oh a tooth has to be coming soon–and it doesn’t. I never really thought we would stop wearing bibs. Luckily, when my son was teething we picked up some bibdanas and I can’t get myself to buy any other type. They don’t look like your average bibs–and add a little bit of style to your little ones outfit, instead of their spit ladened clothes. 
Bibdana, $20 for a set of 4 + paci clip Ooby Dooby Baby MIMOSA for 20% off


One thing new moms must have on hand is diaper cream. As someone who cloth diapers, I have to use something that is cloth diaper safe so it doesn’t stain. I used this on a rash for my toddler, and it seriously cleared up overnight. It smells divine, you won’t even think twice about putting this vegan cocoa butter formula on your littles ones bum, and is there anything better than their slogan “so pure you can eat it?”  And let’s talk about the container–anything in a gorgeous tin container like that has got to be good!
Diaper Cream, $18 Charlotte’s Bum Butter MamaLove10 for 10% off


If you’ve been following along with my journey with my toddler becoming a big boy, you have seen that we recently got rid of the pacifier. It was huge to me that it was gone before the baby was born. Although, he lost sleep for a couple nap times–it saved me so many sleepless nights and days when he was an infant. I will most definitely be offering Carson a pacifier, and these clips are so helpful in not having to buy 20 pacifiers that get lost who knows where paci land.
Pacifier Clip,$5 Leather for Littles


Can we breathe a big sigh of relief for the existence of teething necklaces? Your BFFs during the not-so-fun part of mommyhood. Bringing comfort to baby’s uncomfortable gums, occupying their sweet little hands and adding a cute accessory to your neck. Made from 100% food grade Silicon, BPA free, no Phthalates, no lead, or no PVCs, this one will surely make your momma heart sing. Other fun teether styles  include: diamond, camera and cloud shapes.
Gnaw Teething Necklace, $15 Muki blankspace15 for 15% off


This. Heres to you mommas and keeping your sanity. This nursing bracelet by NursElet functions as a shirt holder during a nursing session so you get to bond with your baby instead of fighting with your clothes. During those first few weeks when it’s hard to know which direction is up, after use, you can wear as a cute bracelet to remind yourself which side to nurse from next. Please and thank you! They also just added a stylish set of nursing scarves,$42, perfect for this time of year and sprucing up your outfit with little time required, because unless you know a secret, there isn’t much of that to go around with a new baby. 
Nursing Bracelet, $15 NursElet SHEISMAMA for 15% off 


I first saw this being used in a Target about a year ago. I thought it was the most amazing contraption. You see so many people setting their car seat on top of the cart, and a lot of people don’t even know how dangerous it is. I love that you can put the car seat in the seat, or put baby directly in it. We will be using this on our daily Target shopping trips. 
Shopping Cart Hammock, $49.95 Binxy Baby
