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.

Frozen Knickers | Kersten
The Shop: This teensy shop carries a perfectly executed item we think every kid’s room should have: a countdown chain. With lovely fabrics and attention to detail, Frozen Knickers does it best. The interlocking loops look great hanging from your nursery ceiling or wall, and they’re a fun way to build excitement as you anticipate milestones like baby’s first birthday. The handmade crib quilts aren’t too bad either.
The Seller: Kersten is a mother of four from southeast Washington with a lifelong passion for sewing that kicked into high gear while she was pregnant with twins. Luckily they are sleepy boys; she uses every naptime as an opportunity to stock her shop.
Signature Item: Fabric countdown chain, $35
