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…

My daughter’s favorite color is blue – Has been ever since she turned one. Not sure if she saw it somewhere or on someone/something and got hooked, or if her love for Thomas the Train really sucked her in? Either way, I love how she is so definitive about the color blue. I have to say, the kid’s got something here…there are so many beautiful shades of blue!

So, today I shower you in BLUE! As usual, there’s a mix of boy + girl choices, but some can be unisex for sure.

Have fun!

(Now, if only we can get the sky to turn blue)
