Sean and Tracie Gildea realized they needed to take matters into their own hands when shopping for their baby boy’s room left them uninspired. Despite a diligent search, the couple was disappointed by the limited selection of children’s bedding they saw in stores. “Most of what we found was either dull or too sophisticated,” Sean recalls, “when a baby should be about being whimsical and fun.” And so, like the old saying goes, necessity truly is the mother of invention. The void the Gildeas found in the marketplace inspired the pair to launch Sozo, a charming collection of colorful clothes, blankets, sleepwear and accessories.

Such are the inspired visions for infants, little girls, and big girls as captured in children’s clothing from April Cornell.
Teething is a challenging time! Sleepless nights and seemingly endless bouts of crying are difficult enough to struggle through; add in the fact that a teething baby chews on everything in sight, and you’ve got a source of concern. Parents also worry about their drooling infant wearing cold, wet shirts. In the past, parents used feeding time bibs to catch the drool and water-filled, chilled teething rings for chewing. Now there are more trendy tools available! Per Bambini, Dr. Bloom, Inc., ZoLi, Inc., and Amberizon offer fashionable, creative teething accessories that soothe parents and babies alike.
Winter is fast approaching and with that comes the excitement of SNOW!

Yet not every child gets to experience snow, or at least not as often as they’d like. With Snow To Go®, children can celebrate the joy of snow all year long!
