Mama needs some new shelving!

VOTE FOR US in the FedEx Small Business Grant Competition...pretty please!

The store is in dire need of a makeover as it has been running for over 18 years (9 with the previous owner). The concrete floors are damaged from years of strollers, and the shelving has seen its day. With a redesign, I could fit more products into a smaller space. To accommodate new demands, I would add a changing room for moms so that I could integrate modern, organic maternity clothing. This is something that is lacking in our neighborhood, and I am frequently asked for.

We appreciate all of your votes, thank you!

Are you curious about cloth diapers? They have come a long way from the diaper pinning days of yore. Today’s parents who are looking for an environmental and economical alternative to disposables can find a wide range of cloth diaper styles and accessories that make using cloth as simple and convenient as disposables.

Researching cloth diaper options is often the most daunting part of choosing cloth. Most retailers carry several brands and styles of diapers, and there is a vast amount of information online and in books. There is a lot of information out there to sift through so here is a simple introduction to cloth diapers to help you get started.

Happy International Women's Day!

Nutcase Little Nutty Gen 3!

The new Little Nutty Helmets have arrived and they are just too cute! We love that they now come with a visor. They have taken the best features of their Street Sport line of adult bike and skate helmets and used them to enhance the design and function of the little kid helmets you love. Great designs that kids and parents both adore, with a smoother contoured shell, a lighter weight for littler heads, and extra sets of pads to grow with your kid. This third generation of our Little Nutty helmet is sure to get your kid out on their bike or scooter in safety and style.
