American Baby’s Baby Booty: Win $100 of Mini Boden

Thursday, August 9th, 2012

Babies don’t go back to school, but that doesn’t mean your tiny person couldn’t use some new fall clothes. Since I’m clothes-shopping for my biggies this month, I have the itch to blog about brands I’ve loved since they were small, starting with Mini Boden. It’s a Web site and a catalog out of England, run by Johnnie Boden, a dad.

Their stuff isn’t the cheapest, but it is very well-made. I’d compare it to Gap quality. It’s got a British design flair, with a lot of sweet plaids, darling appliques, and pretty trims. A pack of five different, thick, long-sleeved bodysuits like the ones shown here is $46. If you sign up for their emails, you’ll get a free-shipping offer what seems like every few weeks, which saves you a $10 charge.

PS although it’s much more fun to buy baby clothes, you should know that Boden also makes maternity clothes. We use their $34 leggings in a lot of our maternity fashion shoots. They’re soft and silky and I’m not too ashamed to say that maybe, just maybe, some of us wear them when we aren’t pregnant too.

Whether you need baby clothes, maternity clothes, big-kid clothes or something for your guy, I think you’d be happy with anything from Boden. To make it easier, I’ve begged the Boden folks to give one fortunate poster a $100 giftcard. (You’re welcome!) Leave a comment, up to one a day, anytime from now until the end of the day on Wednesday, August 15th. We’ll randomly pick one post for the $100 giftcard. You can read the full rules here. Goody luck!

American Baby’s Baby Booty: Win $250 to Shop Zutano.com!

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

Your mind doesn’t work clearly when you’re pregnant. You come up with grand visions and crazy rules, like “my daughter will NEVER use a pacifier.” Then cut to two months after the birth and you’re frantically buying one of every pacifier the drugstore sells, hoping she’ll take one of them.

I actually decided, during my second pregnancy when I was sleepy, hormonal, and seriously morning-sick, that my son would come out into the world and wear nothing except Zutano clothing. I really thought I could somehow limit his wardrobe to this, my favorite brand. It was as if my brain refused to remember that some relatives would pass me bodysuits emblazoned with sports themes, or that friends would give me stuff with goofy slogans on it. Or that my mom, chief grandchild-clothier, has her own brand attachments. Most importantly, I had somehow shut down the part of my brain that remembered that a baby can vomit on every outfit in the diaper bag, and often you just have to stop into the nearest mass-market store and buy a huge pack of Onesies.

So lets just say that things didn’t go as planned. Joe rocked a lot of different looks. But I can promise you that when he was wearing clothes that I bought him myself, they were Zutano. Check him out below, determined to walk in his little Zutano footie! (Yes, he used his big sister’s potty as a walker.)

My kids have outgrown the brand now, but I still love to give Zutano stuff as gifts to friends who have babies. I love to visit their showroom here in New York City, where founder Michael hosts the press along with his now so-grown-up daughter. (Sigh…they grow so fast!) The company itself is up in Vermont, you can read their whole charming history here.

I could go on and on with my Zutano love letter (They let employees bring their kids to the office! They’re one of the few lines that offer extensive clothes for preemies!) but let me cut to the chase: They’re going to give a $250 giftcard so one of you loyal GoodyBlog readers can get a little closer to my “this baby will only wear Zutano” fantasy. You can use it to go hog-wild at Zutano.com, where the sizes go from preemie to 4T.

Here are some groundrules: You can only post once a day, through the end of Wednesday, June 20th. You can post anything you want, but maybe go ahead and say what you love and what frustrates you about baby clothes. (I love soft cotton clothes. And I hate when a decoration is all scratchy on the inside of the clothes.) You can read all of the official rules here. Goody luck!
