Staff Picks: Lauren N.

LaurenNHi there! My name is Lauren Nobile and I’m the new E-Commerce Marketing Assistant at BabyUnited. I couldn’t be more thrilled to join the BU team. Although I’m not a mother, I was once voted “Best Babysitter Ever” by the neighborhood kids in my New Jersey hometown – a title I’m still proud of. I also have plenty of friends with young nieces and nephews that I ‘m surrounded by more than I ever expected. I’ve become very familiar with the  many uses of BabyLegs since I’ve come on board and I’ve grasped why our customers are so crazy for our products – distinguished designs, comfort, accessibility, practicality; I could go on all day.

Here are my favorites picks:



1. Anchors Away

Maybe vacations spent at the Jersey Shore or my summer birthday influence my taste, but  I’m completley obsessed with anything nautical for both genders. Sail boats, anchors, variations of the color blue all give off an “Americana” feel of timelessness.  It’s a classic look that can’t go wrong – for the young and old.

2. Fan-Tastic

It’s always a win going with something crisp and simple but to make it a homerun, there needs to be a pop of color to tie it all together. The playful Mediterranean colors in Fan-Tastic work perfectly with basic aesthetics for spring and summer months.

3.  Alien-Invasion

I don’t need to tell you how fun babies are, so it’s a no brainer that fun babies like fun things. That’s one of the best parts of being around them! Cyclops aliens are not typically the cutest characters, but these legwarmers can put a goofy grin on anyone’s face.

What are your favorite styles for Spring?

Fashion Friday: A New Era of Wardrobe Staples


Spring-cleaning is in full bloom. Now is a perfect time to rid your kid’s closet of too small, worn out, chocolate milk-stained clothes—except for those sentimental pieces, of course—and replenish with new colors, the latest silhouettes and trendy accoutrements. Just like your own closet, quality basics are needed to create the foundation for children’s impeccably cute wardrobe, but contrary to what you may believe about investment pieces, it is easy to restock and refresh on the cheap. Savvy moms will enjoy the newest pack of versatile wardrobe builders that will outlast the season and the life expectancy of most trends. Remember these simple rules on your next spring shopping spree.




Windbreakers are to kids as trench coats are to moms.

The name might conjure up horrible Eighties fashion, but light weight packable windbreakers are a go-to item for chilly mornings at the school bus stop and rainy day trips to the movies. An old-school elbow patch helps to tailor the athletic style and smarten up the look in the style of the trench, while the tech-y fabric excels at soaking up hot hues.

Tutus are to kids as little black dresses are to moms.

Moms know how the LBD takes the guesswork out of dressing up for a special occasion, and tutu skirts for girls does the same—plus add fairy-like fantasies to a gal’s day. From birthday parties and communions to kindergarten graduation ceremonies and weddings, tulle skirts pack a fancy punch for a myriad of events and even looks cute with a casual tee.







Twofers are to kids as twin sets are to moms. 

The look might be less prep school chic and more skater boy, but twofers serve the same purpose as their more genial counterpart: options! The layered style is a mainstay in kids’ fashion. However, on extra warm day a wiser option is to fake the look by pairing arm warmers with a cotton tee. By midday, toss the warmers in the diaper bag.
