Everywhere you look, you’ll find the color grey. I see it most in home decor, children’s clothing and it continues to be a huge trend for nursery colors and themes. Grey has definitely been on my mind a lot lately – mainly because it’s the base color of our new baby’s nursery.
But it’s not just the nursery that has my attention. Everything from diaper bags to baby gear and accessories are calling my name because they are… Grey! Here are some of my baby must-haves, which have me going gaga for the color grey!
1. 4moms mamaRoo
The motions of the 4moms mamaRoo mimic the motions of a real parent, which helps soothe and calm baby in a more natural way. The mamaRoo is a favorite amongst celebrities, parents and hospitals all over and the Silver Plush mamaRoo is the perfect color to compliment almost any decor.
2. Ergobaby Galaxy Grey Original Carrier
One of the popular choices when it comes to baby carriers is the Ergobaby Original. This Galaxy Grey Ergobaby Original Carrier gives parents a way to show their personality and style while carrying on with day-to-day activities – literally.
3. Tea Collection Happy Hoodie in Thunder
Tea Collection is always a step ahead when it comes to conscious fashion for children. In the new Spring 2013 collection, the Happy Hoodie in Thunder immediately caught my eye as it’s the perfect piece for spring time layering and mixes in a lovely shade of dark grey, which is an essential color for any wardrobe – even the littles!
4. Aden and Anais Moonlight Muslin collection
One of the first accessories I purchased for the new baby was a set of the aden and anais Moonlight Muslin swaddle blankets. The design, color and soft bamboo fabrics are sure to bring much happiness to both of us for years to come. I simply love the new prints and colors.
5. Petunia Picklebottom Sashay Satchel Champs-Elysees Stop
The Sashay Satchel is an extremely stylish and functional diaper bag that can easily become a handbag at a moment’s notice, which is something I seriously consider when picking a diaper bag – next to style, of course. The well-appointed array of pockets and accessories make this bag not only practical for parents, but extremely versatile, too! Convert it from a backpack to a shoulder bag in a few simple steps. My love for backpack diaper bags will never go away, especially as I have more kids and fewer hands available.
6. Oeuf Wild Things Crown
With another Prince on the way, this Wild Things Crown by Oeuf has my heart. I can picture my little guy strolling down the sidewalk with his crown on – actually I can see all of my little guys fighting over it. Better make that four crowns. Seriously though, I would proudly display this in his nursery until he’s old enough for it to fit, but use it as a photo prop way before that time comes.
7. blabla Cloud Pillow Grey
Cuddle up on the couch, in a bed, on the floor or in a reading space (cloth teepee’s are a huge hit right now) with this blabla Cloud Pillow. When it comes to lounging, cuddling and reading time with your little one, make it fun, visually appealing and comfortable for all!
8. Maxi Cosi Mico Infant Car Seat in Steel Grey
Gloomy Grey? I think not! The Maxi Cosi Mico infant car seat in Steel Grey is a perfect example of trendy baby gear. Tote and transport your little one in this sweet ride, but be prepared for the questions, “where did you get that car seat?”
9. Nununu Baby Playsuit
Grey clothing doesn’t make me feel grey… Not at all! In fact, it makes me happy and is very versatile – most grey pieces I’ve seen can be worn by a boy or a girl and looks great with just about everything. Take this Nununu Baby Star Playsuit for example. It’s the perfect piece for any baby and exudes comfort.
10. 7 A.M. Enfant Pookie Poncho
7 A.M. knows what they’re doing – they keep baby shielded, protected and safe from the outside elements, but do so in comfort and style. The Pookie Poncho is my go-to all-purpose cover for baby. The cutting edge design of the Pookie Poncho allows it to be securely placed over baby in an infant car seat, stroller seat and/or a baby carrier. It easily transforms between all three, which makes it a must-have for on-the-go families.
