We received a variety of samples for inclusion. All opinions are our own.
For Boys and Girls
After noticing a void in the baby clothing industry for stylish organic clothing, brother sister duo Cote and Calle decided to change that and started J Avenue Organics. They have taken it upon themselves to provide families with stylish apparel you can trust to be free of harmful pesticides, chemicals and skin irritants. Their cotton is 100% organic and oh so soft. I get so many compliments on my little girl’s Coral Abstract outfit shown above. It is so cute and I know she is so comfortable in it! I can’t get enough of all their cute striped items. They are the perfect pieces for layering on crisp fall days. Cute stuff for boys too, see it all here.
As the air cools outside, it cools inside as well. I want to make sure that my kids are comfortable when they are sleeping, as well as awake, and Swaddle Designs helps me do that! Their new Ultimate Swaddle is made of soft, breathable, lightweight cotton flannel. It is heavier than the muslin blankets we usually use, but can easily be thrown over my baby in her carseat or on a ride in the stroller. When she heads to bed, I zip her into her zzZipMe Sack. This wearable blanket is a heavier weight for cooler temperatures, but I still know that she is safely sleeping without extra blankets in her bed. We love all of our Swaddle Designs blankets and recently fell in love with their bibs too! You just can’t go wrong! Find just what you are looking for here.

Here in Alaska, we have already had our first snow of the season. I was so glad that my kids had their Stonz Bootz and Mittz on hand! These Winter Bootz are super lightweight and made with kids in mind. They have a slip resistant sole plus a 600D nylon upper making a boot that will withstand temperatures down to -50oC/-58oF. Available in 5 colours, they’re suitable for children up to 14 years of age! If you have babies to keep warm, you have to try their Booties, they can slide on right on top of their shoes. They keep their feet warm and dry and can’t fall off, winter perfection! Their Mittz are designed to stay securely on, while keeping the cold out. I love that they have a clip that keep the two Mittz together when they are not in use. No more digging for the match! Head over to the Stonz website to check out all their options from infants up to 14 years.
Made from 100% cotton duck, Carhartt‘s children outwear is both durable and comfortable. My son loves his Carhartt Active Jac, he uses it daily as his jacket for school. It is great for both heading to and from school and playing out in the snow. His jacket is big enough to last for two years, but doesn’t feel or look giant on him. Their Quick Duck Snowsuit includes some of these awesome features, but also has Rain Defender durable water repellent. Both items will come in handy as the weather chills down even more. Kids everywhere can stay warm and cozy this fall by bundling up with Carhartt.

Inspired by the stories she heard from her pediatrician husband, she decided to use these bags to educate moms about childhood sickness. Sick Bags were born. Each bag is handmade in New York City out of vegan leather. From the outside, the bag is chic and sophisticated. inside the bag it is playful and fun with an illustration of one of the most common childhood sickness: streptococcus, streptococcus mutans, e. coli, and coxsackie.
