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

Laundry Monster | Cherie Holkan
Laundry Monster’s Rankings
- #8 Best Gear
About this shop: Cherie doesn’t fill her shop with a bunch of different baby products – instead, she focuses all of her energy on one specialty: burp cloths. And Etsy shoppers agree that she’s the best, with over 6,000 burp cloth sets sold already. All Laundry Monster burp cloths are made from 100% cotton prefold newborn diapers, hand-dyed with over 50 different patterns – from owls to bacon. And considering they start at under $6, it’s an affordable baby essential that’s more thoughtful than the store-bought brands.
About this seller: Laundry Monster was created to counteract the overwhelming pink and blue newborn accessories that Cherie found impossibly boring. Instead she’s inspired by bold, beautiful color and unique patterns.
Signature Item: The Salad Days Burp Cloth, $5.75
