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.

Hip Baby Boutique | Katie Cowing
- #6 Best Gear
The Shop: While the nursing covers, diaper bags and pacifier clips are nothing to sneeze at, what we really love about this shop are the infant car seat covers. Those first three to six months are your last chance to tote baby along on a shopping trip, lunch date or to an appointment, but without a car seat cover your chances at relaxation while he snoozes are slim to none. This selection is cute, cozy and handmade from bright cottons to ensure a restful baby – and hopefully a less-stressed mom.
The Seller: Katie works from her home in London, Canada, with the singular goal of helping keep moms styling while they learn the ins and outs of motherhood.
Signature Item: Spring/Summer infant car seat cover, $34.95
