New Jammies: Dino-mite Snuggly PJ’s

Did you know some of your kids pajamas may be made of chlorinated and brominated flame retardants, inorganic flame retardants such as antimony oxides, and phosphate-based compounds? I can't pronounce half of those words, which means I really do not feel comfortable letting my kids wear them.

Carter’s Watch The Wear: Boys Short Set’s

The official Carter’s Watch the Wear 2-piece shorts set is an essential for every little boy that likes to play hard. Each polo shirt has a strip of plaid around the collor that matches the plaid madras shorts perfectly. The outfit is made with 100% cotton, which was chosen for its comfort and strength.  They have paid very careful attention to each and every stitch so the outfit retained its shape and comfort, wash after wash, even when covered in pudding! I saw a few reviews online about how these outfits fell apart after washing- so I was a bit worried how they would hold up. I am not sure what … [Read more...]
