Sun protection for little rays of sunshine!


April 27, 2015 by Tiffany Lambert


Is there anything more wonderful than the first rays of sunlight in the spring? The sun is always a welcome sight after a dark and cold winter. Remember to take care since children’s skin is especially sensitive to the sun, particularly in the beginning of the season when their skin is pale. The best way to protect all of our little sunshine’s is to make sure they are not in the sun too long and to try to keep them in the shade as much as possible. There is also clothing available that can help. IDEAS FOR SMART SUN PROTECTION Babies should not be exposed to sunlight or excessively high temperatures.

Dressing a Newborn


April 16, 2015 by Tiffany Lambert


How much clothing is right for a newborn baby? Many new parents find dressing a newborn difficult, particularly in the first few months, and especially if those first few months are in winter. You don’t want the baby to freeze, so you bundle up. But it’s most common that parents actually put too many clothes on their baby than too little.

March 18, 2015 by Tiffany Lambert


We love camp! We love camp for all the same reasons you loved camp as a kid—adventure in the great outdoors, new friends who you wrote letters to all year long and life-long memories that you still cherish. Today, camp is even more important since kids don’t have enough daily opportunities to play, explore and take risks. Summer camp, whether it’s sleep-away camp or day camp, provides children with a chance to explore the world in a controlled and nurturing setting. Kids can develop independence and experience things that they may not be able to at home. We talked to our staff and reflected on our own camp experiences.

Bottoms that last!


March 11, 2015 by Tiffany Lambert


Do you ever get the feeling that you can’t buy enough bottoms to last the season? Either your soon to be, not so little one, grows two inches over the winter; or your rambunctious one rug-burns holes right through the knees of every pair of pants she owns, all in the name of building and exploring! Not to mention the daily morning ritual of, which outfit to wear because this one is too scratchy, or that one is too worn down, or this one is too boring… It can all get pretty overwhelming! We’ve worked very hard to design bottoms that still allow kids to be kids. That means, non-scratchy, durable, functional, fun bottoms that both you and your kids will enjoy without the morning …
