Catbird Baby Mei Tai Baby Carriers: Style on the Go

Babywearing has increased in popularity in recent years and there are now lots of options available to fit just about everyones style. One of the new entries into the market is Catbird Baby.

Catbird Baby's stylish carriers combine the traditional Chinese mei tai with gorgeous, eye-catching fabrics. Mei tais are designed extra comfort by bringing the baby's legs up into a seated position and using the carrier to distribute the baby's weight unto the wearer's waist and hip (rather than the standard back and shoulders of other sling and carrier styles).

Not only can you have your hands free while carrying your baby, but you can look stylish and be comfortable too! CatBird Baby's mei tais retail for $98 and can be worn three ways--on the hip, front or back--and tied around the waist. They combine fabrics combined bold fabrics with retro inspired prints and solid-colored cotton twill on the other."

Childish Clothing: Rockin' Maternity and Kids Clothes

Ah, I remember that feeling of dread when I was finally unable to button my jeans closed and it was time to take out the dreaded maternity clothing. At the time of my previous two pregnancies, there was very little available in stylish maternity fashions. The clothing that was available definitely did not capture my personal style. What a difference a few years can make.

Today's expectant moms can find the same stylish clothing they like to wear only adapted to fit their ever expanding tummies. One of the most hottest lines of maternity and kids wear is available from Childish Clothing.

Childish clothing for moms and kids are designed to be a comfortable and fashionable fit for today's lifestyles. The styles run the gamut from preppie to rock star. The fashions for mom are stylish, form-flattering pieces that shows off an expectant moms curves to perfection. The kids clothing are designed for active kids with a hip rock and roll flare.

Childish Clothing was created by Skye Hoppus, a former MTV executive married to Mark Hoppus of Blink 182 and +44. She is also a busy mom to 3-year-old Jack, who happens to be ones of Childish's childrens line models! A couple of other familiar faces modeling the line are Shana Moaklar and son Landon Barker.
