As God is My Witness, I’ll Never Buy a White Onesie Again!

Updated January 26: Bebemiqui is the winner! Congratulations and thanks to everyone who entered.

Maternity clothes were stuck in a time warp of fugliness until some brilliant fashion industry executive realized that being knocked up doesn’t mean you want to wear unflattering clothes. When I got pregnant with Miss C in 2001, Target, GAP, and Old Navy were all jumping on the hip maternity wear bandwagon. Thank God, because my super comfortable Liz Lange Target maternity black jersey pants saw me and my belly through just about every work day.

Ditto for baby clothing. Not every mom wants their little boy to wear puppy dog sunsuits or their little girl to wear pink gingham bloomers, although I have to say we are pretty partial to pink around here. Just not necessarily gingham.

Childish Clothing, favorited by celebrity moms like Heidi Klum and Mariska Hargitay, was founded by former MTV executive Skye Hoppus, wife of Blink 182 frontman Mark Hoppus, who saw a need for fashion-forward maternity and children’s clothing. They sent me this adorable onesie (size 3 to 6 months) for a giveaway…model baby not included.

How to enter: Visit Childish Clothing and check out all the cool mom and kid clothing. Come back here and leave a comment on this post saying which of their products you like best. I love this brown and teal poplin summer maternity dress (on sale) and this flattering solid jersey sleeveless summer maternity top (also on sale!)

Here’s the scoop on the upcoming Snowy Days Giveaways:

Giveaway four (posting January 25) is for a gift certificate for a free pack of Mabel’s Labels, cute personalized labels that are dishwasher and microwave proof.

Giveaway five (posting February 1) is for a $25 coupon good for the wonderful online baby and children’s boutique, Little Piddles. (Check out the adorable musical dress-up dresses and skirts….a certain 2-year-old is getting the Swan Lake skirt for her 3rd birthday in March.)

Giveaway six (posting February 8) is for a 50 percent coupon off a one-year online backup solution by my husband’s company, MouseCalls Computer Services, which would be ideal for all of you moms who are small business owners (or someone like me who has 9.5 million photos stored on her laptop.)

I may have a seventh giveaway for a personalized children’s book. Stay tuned!

    So many fun things! You are so giving. I am personally fond of the “my dad is my hero” shirt. I have a friend whose hubby is currently serving and she would LOVE that. I also love the pink frilly tutus and dressups but I don’t think my 6 year old boy would be very happy wearing them. 🙁

  3. Marla says:

    Love the little girl dresses – not many times do you see your daughters name as a dress name! She would think it was cool.

  4. Southern Mom says:

    Oh, wow….I like Drew, Zac, Devin, Savannah, Carolina…and I haven’t even hit the maternity or girls dresses part! A girl could go broke there with so much to choose! SO CUTE!
