Pretty and Practical Items For Babies

Who says mealtimes require ugly bibs?

There are elevendy billion (yes, it’s an actual calculation) baby items out there and approximately 75% of them (and that is a generous estimation) are ugly.

I’m not sure why most people think that babies and good design don’t mix.  Yes.  I know.  Babies don’t care what their clothes and gear look like, but obviously a lot of parents do.  Just because you’re becoming a parent doesn’t mean your good taste immediately flies out the window.

Here is a roundup of items that I find to be both pretty and practical for babies – any of which would make great gifts!

See the roundup after the jump!
