Beautiful Baby Essentials: Clothes, Toys & Gear That Don’t Sacrifice Style

Jump to Comments

Next month, I’ll be teaching my first Skillshare class on this topic! On Thursday, April 4, at my house in San Francisco.

How this came about: When I was pregnant with Viv, I had a hard time navigating the whole new world of baby products. All the brands were new to me, and the stuff that appealed to my aesthetics was either super expensive or buried under 50 flashy, minxy items that would otherwise have no place in my life. But I spent time to find pieces that work well and fit my style. I’ve shared this list with friends, and with their encouragement, I’m happy to share it with more people now.

This is a list of pre-baby essentials. (There’s plenty more that comes after.) In the class, I’ll share more about each piece, plus the other phases. Click to sign up for Beautiful Baby Essentials: Clothes, Toys & Gear That Don’t Sacrifice Style. Please share it with anyone who might be interested, and I’d love to hear what you think!
