shopping for newborns

Ahhh….a dream come true- I need to shop for supplies for photo sessions! In recent years there has been an explosion in the number of suppliers of baby hats, wraps, headbands, etc. I often get asked by new moms where I get the cute bonnets, diaper covers and hair accessories that we use, and the answer is usually Etsy ( That’s the easy answer, but if you’re at all familiar with ‘the website to buy all things handmade’, you  know that there are so many stores within Etsy that it can be overwhelming. So, to have an online place to give people a starting point, I thought I’d do an updated shopping post. Here’s the original guide to buying cute newborn things– I’ll include some of the old standbys in the list below, and new ones that I’ve found since then.



Goodnight Mouse-   lovely soft knits

Kirinati – really beautiful knit and flowered girl hats

The Little Labyrinth – unique designs and quality yarns

CraftNikki – crocheted hats

Ashley’s Posh Tots  – gorgeous hats that incorporate lace and ribbons

Sweetness – creator of one of my most popular colorful boys’ hats

The Moonlight Shadow -uses mohair for ultimate softness. In Italy, but ships very quickly

EllieBellie Design – hip and fun hats

The Blueberry Hill – fedoras for little boys



BelleBands Boutique

Teagan’s Tot Shop

Girlie Bowtique

Banner Boutique



Diaper covers

Titchbiz – soft and cozy knit diaper covers in an array of colors and several styles

Sunkissed Cuties – ruffled bloomers in lots of fun fabrics

SouthernBabyDesigns -flower bloomers (hydrangea, etc.)

Ruffled Lace Boutique   – lace leggings- the one thing on this list I haven’t tried yet, but aren’t they cute?

That should be a good start! I’ve bought from all of the above stores and can vouch for their service and the quality of their items.  I’m always looking for new items, though, so if you know of anyone with cute things, leave their info in the comments section. Happy shopping!
