Le Lait SS ’15


Not yet familiar with Le Lait Baby? Made of only the softest organic cotton, their Spring/Summer 2015 collection does not disappoint. The collection is called MILK, and the designs are a really cool/modern yet sweet take on MILK. All pieces in the collection are gender neutral and I love the fact that you can mix n’ match tops and bottoms. As far as the one piece rompers go, I would pick the Milk Words Sleep and Play as my personal favorite.

A bit more about the brand…
Le Lait was started by two friends that first met in the sixth grade. After having children of their own they found that there was a lack of stylish, gender neutral clothing in the marketplace. Le Lait was soon born to help both little boys and little girls look great and stay comfortable in only the softest organic cotton.

Hi, Irene from designstiles again.

Never one to pass up a good deal or inform others about a sweet savings, so wanted to share with you the half yearly sale going on at Nordstrom. I feel like kids are always in need of new clothes, I mean adults too, but kids just grow out of theirs so fast.

Here are some of my sale item picks for boys and girls. And if you have the time, I’m sure there is something there for us moms too. Or dads since Father’s Day is right around the corner.


Happy Wednesday and get shopping. Oh and did I mention free returns and shipping now through May 31st.

boys: planes shirt // headphones shirt // shoes // car shirt

girls: sweater // dress // shorts // shoes

Feather Drum SS ’15


The gorgeous Feather Drum SS ’15 collection is now available at

About the collection…

“When we were kids, like so many other families, we would pack up for the entire Summer holidays and head to our own piece of coastal paradise where we were free to run, play, create. Days merged into weeks as we explored every single tree, every bay, and potential hideouts from pirates, wild animals and mystical beasts.

It’s this freedom of the heart and mind, the spirit of adventure and imagination that inspires the Lost Oasis collection.

Lightweight pure cottons, soft jersey and beautiful custom prints make up a range which is truly for kids who walk to the beat of their own drum.”

Time to get festive.

Belly Armor


Heard of Belly Armor? They make a beautiful collection of apparel & accessories that shield everyday radiation with 99.9% effectiveness.

Belly Armor products are made with RadiaShield® Fabric, a highly conductive silver textile with the same shielding properties as a 1/4-inch thick sheet of aluminum. It shields by neutralizing incoming electromagnetic waves, canceling out the ambient radiation and reducing your exposure.

Belly Armor makes a beautiful collection of products including belly bands, maternity tops, nursing covers, men’s boxer briefs, baby monitors, and blankets. The blankets are perfect for laptop users! In fact I just got one for my 5 year old daughter. She uses a laptop to do her homework about once/week and I love that she is protected!


What are the health risks during pregnancy?
Today, the evidence remains mixed. Radiation has long been cited as a health risk to young children and developing fetuses, but scientific experts still debate the nature and extent of that risk. Because the dangers caused by radiation can take years to show their effects in young children, the risks during pregnancy from radiation are difficult to pinpoint and represent increased probabilities of health impacts developing over time.

However, many health experts and governments recommend applying the “precautionary principle” towards these risks until we know more. Parallels have been drawn to other toxins such as tobacco and asbestos, which took decades for policy and awareness to catch up with emerging scientific evidence. Most scientists agree that more studies must take place with large populations over extended periods of time, but funding for such studies has been limited.

5 Easy Tips to Protect Yourself from Everyday Radiation

1. DISTANCE – Keep your cell phone, computer and other electronics from being in direct contact with your body. (Read the fine print that comes with your cell phone – most manufacturers direct you to always keep 1/2 – 1-inch between yourself and your phone.) You can do this by:

Using earphones and speaker phones (but be sure to keep the phone away from your pregnant belly as well).
Don’t place laptops or tablet computers directly on your body, especially your pregnant belly – and if you must, then use a pillow between the device and your body.
Don’t carry your cell phone right next to your body – carry it in your bag instead. If you don’t have a bag and must put it in your pocket, face the front to your body so the radiation is directed away from you or turn it to airplane mode.
Text instead of calling, but be sure to keep your phone away from your pregnant belly.
Don’t sleep with your phone under your pillow or close to you on the night stand.
2. AIRPLANE MODE – Turning your device to airplane mode turns off the cellular and wireless signals. If your child must use a cell phone or tablet computer, switch it to airplane mode. Any time you don’t need your device to be on (especially if you are carrying it next to your body), turn it to airplane mode (this will also save battery life).

3. LIMIT TIME – When possible, limit your time using your cell phone and other devices. Use a corded landline for long calls.

4. BUY SMART – Not all cell phones are created equal. The radiation emitted varies significantly between them. Cell phone manufacturers are required by law to list a measure known as the SAR (specific absorption rate) of the phone, which is a measure of the radiation absorbed by the user. CNET, Environmental Working Group, and others keep up-to-date compilations of the best and worst phones for radiation emission and can be found by searching for “cell phone SAR ratings”. However, regardless of the SAR, avoid using cell phones directly next to the body.

5. SHIELDING – Shielding is a safe and convenient way to reduce radiation exposure while you are using radiation emitting devices, as well as helping to reduce ambient radiation from cell phone towers and wireless networks. Reducing this exposure is especially important during times of high risk – pregnancy, early childhood, and even while trying to conceive.

pediped® Footwear + Win a $75 GC on IG


Last week while in Las Vegas for the ABC Kids Show I attended a fabulous dinner party hosted by
pediped®. It was really fun seeing the pediped® team in their hometown of Las Vegas. (see a few pics below)

Have you seen the new styles in the fall/winter collection? Do you have favorites? I absolutely LOVE the Jake in Chocolate for boys & for girls I’m loving the new Flex Kacie Black Boot

Head on over to my Instagram: @spearmintbaby & enter to win a $75 GC to pediped® today!


The pediped® Story
pediped® footwear was founded in 2005 by Angela and Brian Edgeworth. After their first daughter Caroline was born, Angela started to do a lot of thinking about footwear and the kind of shoes that would be best for her child. She wanted a shoe that was comfortable and stylish and that could be worn both indoors and out. Most importantly, she wanted a shoe that was healthy for her daughter’s feet.
After doing a lot of research, Angela discovered that doctors recommended barefoot walking or soft leather sole shoes, but the choices for infants and toddlers were limited.That is when Angela and her husband Brian decided to create the perfect shoe, which would be the “next best thing to bare feet”.
pediped® has become one of the fastest growing children’s footwear brands in the U.S. and offers more than 120 designs spanning EU sizes 17-36. pediped’s three footwear lines include Originals® (soft soled shoes for children ages birth to 2), Grip ‘n’ Go™ (soft rubber soled shoes for children 9 months to three years) and Flex® (rubber soled shoes for children 1-8 years). pediped® is sold all around the world.

Wren & James


This morning I’m sharing a peak at the Spring/Summer ’14 Wren & James collection. I love cheerful colors, and especially the gingham! The collection feels perfectly vintage & yet somehow very modern at the same time.   Wren & James has created very wearable pieces that are beautiful for family photos this summer or just a play date at the park.

Below, Harper is wearing the Gingham Pinafore:

I’ve had these two sleepsacks hanging in my son’s closet since before he was born and never really bothered using them until about two weeks ago. Now I’m totally hooked and am sort of kicking myself for not getting to them sooner since he’s shown signs of preferring to be arms free. I’m pretty much the worst swaddler and these sleepsacks (also known as wearable blankets) keep baby warm and ensure your baby won’t break out. Most babies are ready to transition into sleepsacks as early as 3 months. For boys, they look a bit like dresses, which also kind of cracks me up, but not to fret, they come in an array of designs and colors. Check out my favorites below.

How cool is the star one?
