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: Baby slings and carriers made of two layers of 100% cotton in cutting-edge patterns. Products are designed to evenly distribute baby’s weight across a mother’s aching muscles, which means comfort and peace of mind for every customer. They’re also adjustable for multiple caregivers and appeal to picky, style-conscious moms. In other words, they’re pretty perfect.
The Seller: Owner Jo, a mom from Fort Wayne, IN, felt traditional carriers were wholly uncomfortable “crotch danglers” for her baby girls. Wanting something better, she learned how to make her own beautiful, safe and comfortable carriers, improving the design over time. She opened her shop so mothers worldwide could enjoy babywearing with the benefit of her tried-and-tested improvements.
Signature Item: Turquoise Dream linen ring sling baby carrier, $85
