A few of our favorite things: October 2017

Farmer chic

There’s something about autumn that makes us want to head to a farm with our little ones and pet chickens, pick apples and enjoy the crisp weather and warm sunshine. So, we couldn’t be more excited to tell you that The Little Seedling has cloth diaper covers from Thirsties in a new, farmer chic print: Country Harvest. We know this baby and children’s boutique knows what they’re doing when it comes to keeping kids happy (and dry)— when they opened fourteen years ago, cloth diapers were their signature item!  Shop these super-cute, pliable, breathable, ultra-comfortable and waterproof cloth diaper covers that are perfect for cider sippin’ and apple pickin’. Thirsties Duo Wraps in Country Harvest are available online, or in store, for $14.99, with two sizes available (0-9 months and 9-36+ months).

She Persisted book

Yes, she did.

Being a little girl isn’t always easy. Especially at the beginning of a new school year— full of new faces and new rules— staying strong and speaking out can be intimidating. Give your mini-feminist a history lesson in American women who fought to be heard, with Chelsea Clinton’s new book, She Persisted. Featuring 13 stories of inspirational women, like Harriet Tubman, Oprah Winfrey, and Helen Keller, who never took “no” for an answer, this kind of picture book is the confidence boost women of all ages can benefit from. Available at My Urban Toddler, in store or online, for $17.99.
