Being asked to scout out 10 fabulous Etsy finds for newborns is a dangerous task given just sighting the ‘baby products’ sign at the supermarket is enough to make me sprout a feather and start clucking. Hormones aside, let’s band together in a collective coo as we look at 10 picks of handmade Etsy goodness for newborns!
Swaddle blankets are a must when settling a newborn and all the hip babies are rocking in monochrome prints of late. This organic cotton beauty shows off an amazing black bear print, exclusive to Alphabet Monkey.
Birth announcement ideas are plentiful among Etsy’s virtual aisles, but this one from Todd Borka stood out from the crowd. How much fun do clever artistic doodles bring to this card?!
Those sweet new babies, they mightn’t be taking any steps yet, but they have the cutest tiny feet which we can’t help but indulge in cute tiny shoes. Super talented shoemaker Ulla + Viggo has a stunning baby shoe collection full of pops of coloured leather and neutrals in moccasin bootie styles and Mary Janes.
A baby book to record all those precious moments and milestones is a must if you want to guarantee you’ll remember them through the hazy sleep deprived newborn phase. We adore this modern baby book from Mushybooks, there’s not a gaudy graphic to be seen!
We spied this fancy butterfly burp cloth set recently from Sugar Plum Lane and thought they were a really pretty accessory for a not so pretty post feed necessity.
Because newborn babies simply are the sweetest thing ever to happen, this sweet and ruffly blanket from All That Ruffle makes for a perfect receiving blanket when doting grandparents visit to welcome your wee little one.
Newborns lose a lot of their body heat through their heads and a ridiculously cute way to combat that is with a hat. Our pick of the bunch is the pixie bonnet from Baboom.
Every little baby needs a sweet and petite friend and this charming ted in all his crocheted glory is a sweet addition to a nursery for your little one to befriend. You can find him (and many of his dapper friends) at Cuddle and Yarn.
A cute way to announce that your baby has arrived? A simple snapshot of your cherub adorned in the I’m Here Onesie from Plucky Mustard ought to do it!
And finally, a set of beautifully crafted age blocks will set the tone for the hundreds of photos you take from your bub’s very first day and all of those along the way. It’s an awesome Etsy find to keep consistency in your age photos and help you remember specifics when you reflect back. You can find this set (and many more like it) at Sweet Sage Studio.
