Cocoon Cotton Romper (0-2 years)
£9.00  SHOP NOW
Looking for something cute and a little tongue-in-cheek for your baby boy to wear over the festive period that doesn’t involve reindeer ears? This is sweet, playful, but still cool and stylish. And not too silly. I love it. And for all the baby girls out there, the Angel baby grow is fast becoming a cute classic. For a more traditional take on the Christmas romper, this striped one from Gap is another favourite.

easy as abc etc…

Olly B Alphabet Sleepsuit (0-6 months)
I spotted this yesterday in the (recently opened) Oliver Bonas store in Richmond. So sweet! Such a simple idea, but perfectly executed in a simple, tasteful way (no gimmicks here!). Love the white and grey of course. Would make a lovely (unisex) gift for a newborn (and a great idea for twins or triplets). And in case it’s not obvious (well, I know many of you are very sleep-deprived…), it’s available in any letter of the alphabet (oh, actually, except Q, X and Y – I lied!).

ps: I also found the most adorable baby sheepskin ‘pop-on’ mittens on a string while I was in there. I’m dying to share/post them, but they don’t seem to be available to buy on the website. So frustrating. They had them in charcoal and navy, and they were possibly the best (and cutest) baby mittens I have even seen! So if you have a store near you, definitely check them out (apologies if you don’t). I will keep checking the website anyway.

La Redoute Baby Organic Cotton Cardigan & Trousers Set (0-2 years)
How chic is this little two piece? Makes a nice change from an all-in-one sleepsuit (particularly if your baby is still quite little and you have hoards of guests trooping though each day – this just feels a bit more ‘dressed’). I love the wrap detail of the top – just feels more expensive, and well, French. And great that a boy or a girl can wear it. And last, but not least, it’s covered in tiny stars, always one of my favourite prints for babies. Love.


Bobo Choses Sleepsuit (3-24 months)
Couldn’t resist this. So, so sweet. Again, quite a pricey post (well for a sleepsuit anyway), but this is not something you are going to find in your usual high street haunts. Would make the cutest (and most original) gift for a new baby. Love

could this be the chic-est sleepsuit ever?

Cyrillus Sleepsuit With Peter Pan Collar (1-24 months)
When I see things like this, it really does make me want to have another baby (mine are too big for this now sadly – if I could squeeze them into it, trust me I would!). There is just always something so lovely about cuddling a baby in a sleepsuit that I can never quite explain in words. And could this one be the most gorgeous one ever? Grey, Peter Pan collar, tiny embroidered stars, slip-resistant soles (ok, not necessarily chic, but definitely practical once they start staggering around!). And just so, French. Plus I think this is such a fab price. It would make the most adorable gift for a newbown. Love.

ps: thank you for all your lovely comments regarding the bikini giveaway. The winners of the three bikinis are: Sarah (grey spotty bikini, age 3), Gerry (navy spotty bikini, age 4), and Gillian (grey striped bikini, age 5). Congratulations!

super-chic sleepsuits

Vertbaudet Baby Boy Sleepsuits (newborn-18 months)
The French definitely know what they are doing when it comes to kids’ clothes – even their sleepsuits are stylish! I’m not normally a fan of pictures on kids clothes, but these are so tasteful and cute, I would definitely buy them for a friend’s baby (my own are now officially called ‘toddlers’ sadly). I love the colours. And it’s always lovely to have something from time to time that can’t be found on the high street. These are an amazing price too (you get all three for £15.00).
