Top 50 Etsy Baby Shops
We've updated the list: To view 2013's Top 50 Etsy Baby Shops, click here!
Once again, we took on the overwhelming task of narrowing down our 50 favorite Etsy shops for the 18-months-and-under crowd — hunting for the most inventive toys, original outfits, and even our favorite vintage finds. By tapping into the artistic, entrepreneurial spirit booming in this creative community, we found that some of the most dedicated, industrious shop owners direct their numerous talents into the baby world — typically because they themselves are parents and want the best for their own kids. (Luckily, we can reap the benefits of their ingenuity.)
Considering that there are so many talented artisans on Etsy, we deliberately didn’t repeat any Etsy shops from last year — so check back to our Best Etsy Shops of 2011 (as well as our Top 50 Etsy Moms of 2012) for more of our favorites.
Of course, it’s impossible to recognize every single shop, so nominate your favorites, vote for the best, and continue to support the handmade community. — Michelle Horton

About this shop: While we’re all for public breastfeeding rights here at Babble, sometimes moms want to be discreet about it. And thanks to the nursing covers from LaDy LaDuke, we can look more stylish than just draping a big animal-covered blanket over ourselves. They even design shirts and dresses that double as breastfeeding cover-ups, yet you’d never tell by looking at them.
About this seller: Sisters Courtney and Betina decided to create their signature Freeder Frock nursing cover after their sister-in-law, who was struggling to feed her toddler in public, said that she wished she had a nursing cover that covered her back, too. After a lot of research and self-learning, they now have a wide variety of stylish, unique nursing covers – and they’re continuing to expand and grow. You can also find Courtney and Betina at their blog, Mommy LaDy Club.
Signature Item: The Feeder Frock Nursing Cover, $54
