Christmas in October

Here is a little lookie lookie at my Winter/Christmas snowperson snowglobe sleepsack now available, worn by my lil'guy Phoenix- he's entered the work force ;-) He looks so darn cute if I do say so myself, and I most certainly do! Call me biased.

In our household we have a tradition of getting the boys a Christmas pajama every year, so I decided to make sure I offered something festive at babyburrito for this coming snowy season. As it is also Phoenix's first Christmas.

What's great about our sleepers is the fabric is organic cotton and bamboo-giving it a soft touch similar to cashmere, also offering quick diaper change solutions as well as little mittens to keep them from scratching themselves. Great ease of movement within the sack- even those crawling or walking babies can still scoot around if you just rise the elastic from the hem to sit on their hips. Easy in and out with the kimono style opening for those messy changes- nothing needs to go over their head. Created right here in Quebec - trying to ease our carbon footprint - one step at a time.

The little snow globe is filled with a snow person hugging another baby snow person. Tis the season to show love and affection- so go and hug another snow person(well in a few months maybe)- or better yet a real person/baby- much warmer. Have yourself a merry day from babyburrito.

New Beginnings

Wow- summer is officially over and long live Autumn!! I love the colours the smells and the temperature. We call it sweater weather in our household.

I have been procrastinating a lot- guilty as charged but now I can no longer ignore, it is that time again to start a new collection. I have enjoyed spending most of my time with my 8 month old Phoenix and his older brother Aidan- this summer was gorgeous and I played hooky!!

Sadly I was unaware that one of my fabric sources: SYKA Textiles out of British Columbia had closed its doors this past year. Very sad news, as not only were they progressive in offering a wide variety of organic fabrics but Susan Gagnon, one of the owners was such a pleasure to work with and offered wonderful customer service that was hard to beat. Wishing them both luck as I am sure our paths will cross again.

So now on to our new collection, I have decided to share where I buy my organic fabric with all of you out there as I find people are so tight-lipped about sources and hence you see what can happen to a great company. So if you are looking for amazing organic fabrics try Manoir Inc. Right here in Montreal and milled here as well- I could not be happier to help support a Canadian milling company, a rarity these days.

So be ready to see some new sleepers, summer hats and you'll have to wait to see what else.

Hint: meerkats, elephants and pirates oh my!!!
