Top 50 Etsy Baby Shops
Looking for one-of-a-kind nursery d'cor? Newborn outfits not sewn in a factory? Baby gear that doesn't cost a precious chunk of your little one's fledgling college fund? Look to Etsy.com. As we discovered when we compiled Babble's Top 50 Etsy Moms list, the online craft cooperative is a hive of industrious, creative folks - including legions of moms. We also noticed how many Etsy sellers offer amazing items for babies, and how far away their gorgeous wares are from the impersonal, assembly-line infant products most of us are used to. We decided these shops serve the 18-months-and-under crowd so well that they deserve a list of their own.
As the co-founder of DIY site PrudentBaby, a blogger for Babble's Family Style blog and a longtime Etsy shopper, I've visited - and loved - hundreds of Etsy's beautiful baby boutiques. So while I was absolutely thrilled when Babble asked me to do this list, choosing the 50 best of the best was a challenge. Welcome to Babble's roundup of the Top 50 Etsy Baby Shops, purveyors of some of the most beautiful, most useful, most lovingly made baby goods around.
And if we did leave your favorite shop off the list, we hope you'll nominate it yourself.

The Shop: One of the most shocking aspects of the first weeks with baby can be the challenges of nursing. Enter Boobaloo Baby with its stylish and functional nursing reminders. Simply slip the beautiful fabric doodads around your bra strap to remind you where you nursed last – and feel cute in the process. Exhausted new moms now have one less thing to worry about.
The Seller: Having sewn since she was three (her mother ran a sewing and knitting store), owner Briony saw her need for “sewing therapy” go into overdrive after her daughter’s birth. She opened her Etsy shop from her base in Denver, CO, as a place to share her love for both her craft and motherhood itself.
Signature Item: Set of 3 nursing reminders, $6
