decisions decisions...



As my sister enters her third trimester, the pressure to decide on the perfect "home from the hospital" outfit is on. (My big sis picked out the outfit that our parents brought me home in so in so facto...)

Becky 2.0 is due to arrive mid-January. I've already picked up some warm outerwear but have yet to find the perfect hat, onesie, footsie PJs, socks, gloves, thermal unders, or anything else she may need that meet all the criteria: adorable, cozy, easy on/off, soft, small, not one of those silly star-shaped things, and organic. Don't get me wrong, I haven't heard about any toxic baby clothes - I just want to be sure nothing irritates her little baby skin and this very important trip home - the little noodle needs the safest of the safe EVERYTHING.

So I have spent a good chunk of time surfing the web for baby "apparel." I considered something quirky from baby wit but ultimately decided to wait until Becky 2.0 is at least three months old before I start lobbying for eco-advertising space on her belly. Not to mention, a lot of baby wit's great stuff (like this hat) is out of stock. That means PUR BEBE naturally trendy and Nimli rank highest with me. I love the concept behind Swell Foop and a few designs on eco-chic baby but their selections are limited. What I am saying is... I may to take a vote... or some suggestions. Here are my top picks so far:



ABOVE: simple 100% organic onesie; 70% bamboo/30% cotton onesies; and 100% cotton hand knit hat and booties; all from Pur Bebe. BELOW: 100% bamboo pamplemosses onesie: and bossy baby floral heart romper and hat; all from Nimli.


And lastly, my absolute favorites below: OBLI Organics Elephants from Nimli; and 100% certified organic footie sleeper and organic beanie in Back to Nature - both from naturally trendy.

I vote for the hand knit hat and booties!

Yeah... they are way awesome. Plus they match the outerwear item I already got (which you have seen, right?) (and if so don't say anything else about as to leave some element as a surprise) :-)
