Who says naptime can’t be stylish too?!

Bitsy received a whisper from some family in Dallas, TX about a super cute online boutique called Little Bean. Not only does Little Bean carry some of the best brands we love to follow (Anthem of the Ants, Nellystella, Peas + Queues), but they also just announced the arrival of their very own private label organic nap mats! These mats are great for little tykes, toddlers + preschoolers for sleepovers, school naptime or a cozy day at home. Easy to carry and wrap up into one adorable package.

Take a peak…we promise you’re going to be wishing for a siesta as well…

The mats are sold exclusively through www.thelittlebeanshop.com and retail for $150-.

Gina Pasini, of the shop Aabcdefginaa on Etsy, has been silhouetting our lives for the past 3 years. She is extremely talented, up-to-the-minute and just a true pleasure + joy to work with…Check out her shop NOW!

Every year we take an “action” picture of Lucy and send it to Gina – she then creates beautiful silhouettes that grasp the heart of our Lulu. We use them throughout the year on her birthday invitations, thank you notes, party + gift cards and it is such a special way to document how she’s grown year-to-year.

bitsy favorite for the itsy…NOCH MINI!

Bitsy is pumped to introduce you to a brand that enthusiastically follows an organic way of life. Meet Noch Mini. The name NOCH signifies “the basic and majority elements of everything living & organic – N(nitrogen), O (oxygen), C (carbon), H (hydrogen)”. Bitsy has shared organic brands with you in the past – we are definitely passionate about what materials we put on our sweet babies’ + childrens’ skin. Noch Mini uses only certified organic materials and low-impact dyes. We applaud and thank them for their thoughtfulness!

It can be difficult to find adorable options that are also 100% healthy for our pipsqueaks’ little bods. Well, not only does Noch stand by its organic promise, but the designer, Jina Jang, does not skimp on style + trend when creating her collections. Without further adieu, let us introduce you to NOCH MINI…
