Started by an Michelle, an Allenhurst mom, SBD is known for their cloth diapers and eco-friendly accessories. Two accessories which are very popular as gifts for a new or expectant mom are their hemp napkins and cloths and the "B Blanket" by Rain or Shine Kids(sale $32, reg $36).

For the parents who want to have a little fun dressing up their new baby, check out Cotton Baby Onesies for a collection of some of the most off-beat, creative and unique onesies. Started by Lakewood mom Sharon, CBO is a destination for something different. Who doesn't remember the funny moment line from Ralfie's dad in a A Christmas Story, "Fra-gee-lay....ah, must be Italian." Now you can have your own "Fra-gee-lay" onesie complete with leg lamp. If this is a 2nd child, there is a personalized Production onesie which displays both parents' last names like a TV or movie production.
Some of my favorites include: Miso Cutie, Pink Sushi, Mr T-Pity the Fool, Holiday-Bundle of Joy, and the Pink Scooter.
