All Roads Lead to Kickee


  My Obsession with kids clothes began when I signed up for Amazon's Baby Registry.  (When I signed up a few years ago, they were NOT running this cool '$100 worth of wipes' promotion.)  I couldn't believe that my favorite website now had registries.  Much to my surprise, all my friends LOVED that my registry was on Amazon because everyone I know is a Prime Member.  Needless to say, most of my registry items came from Amazon, despite also registering at BuyBuy Baby (still love them) and Target (come one, what mom isn't Target obsessed). 

  Before combing Amazons extensive list of baby items, I turned to a local mom group for baby registry recommendations. (I was a new mom so I could use as much advice as possible!)   One mom suggested Kickee Pants Pajamas and she was very enthusiastic about it.  They were a little pricey for pajamas, I originally thought, but I was willing to throw a pair on our registry.  To my surprise, they were the first item on the registry to get purchased.  I was so excited when it arrived.  The fabric was so buttery soft, that we became completely obsessed.  Kickee our first brand obsession but our list grew and so did my list of Facebook Groups. (love some B/S/T)  Since we have tried nearly all the popular brands, I've compiled a list of our favorites.



Kickee Pants

  Kickee pants (you can shop for it here.)  is a mom created brand with amazing customer service.  They release new prints twice a season and the releases have a very strong following.  In fact, I have joined several Kickee Pants b/s/t groups on Facebook.  These groups are strong communities of moms that trade and sell their older prints and styles.  Its shocking how attached you get to a print after you put your newborn into it for a month.  Once you realize that you can never buy that print again, you turn to b/s/t.  Honestly, I feel lucky that these women welcomed me into their group. 
  So now lets talk clothes.  Kickee pants is on the top of my list because of softness.  The prints are usually an array of animals or colorful patterns.  We are addicted to 'Musical Stripe' right now.  You can check out Musical Stripe here.  I am slowly buying up at many pieces as I can, because I know that once it sells out, its gone.  B/S/T will eventually be my only route to find it again.  I would say the only major cons is that it is a little pricey and delicate.  (yes we wash in Dreft and hand dry. You can get Dreft here.  While your at it, you should buy their surface cleaner because its amazing for stuck on food. You're welcome! ) 

Rags for Raches

  Rags to Raches is another mom built brand (yes to women bosses!!!) of children's rompers (and some Tees).  What makes them unique is that you put them on through the stretchy neckline. I don't know about you, but my daughter throws a fit when we take her shirt on and off.  This eliminates that one dilemma when its time to change.  This company was actually on Shark Tank and has been very popular ever since.  We have a few of these rompers.  They are soft, easy to put on, wash well and VERY comfortable.  When it comes to price, the classic styles are a little cheaper than some of the prints.  Prices seem to range from $30 - $60 but they are worth every dime.   I don't know much about Rachel's releases but I know there is one coming up soon. (this was written 7/2017)    I know there is more than one B/S/T groups on Facebook for this brand, however, I haven't joined yet. 

Freshly Picked

  Yet another mom built brand.  The founder of Freshly Picked got frustrated with poor fitting children's shoes.  She has been making moccasins ever since.  These shoes are not only stylish but they are also comfortable.  Plus most pediatricians recommend soft soled shoes when babies are first learning to walk.   We have about 4 pairs of these and I've been welcomed into 1 B/S/T group. (wonderful ladies there too!)  I have even gotten lucky and picked up a pair at TJ Maxx for $39 dollars!!  That is a steal because Freshly Picked Moccasins go for $60, depending on the prints and styles.  Also, they are preordering for diaper bags right now.  I would be lying if I said I didn't want one and I don't even have a need for one right now.  All 4 pairs have held up really well to being walked in on smooth surfaces.  However, I never let my child walk outside on concrete.  I have seen some nasty pictures of torn up moccasins.  (ain't nobody got time for holes in $60 shoes!!!)  I just ordered a pair of the leather sandals because all my B/S/T ladies recommended them highly.  You can buy the sandals here, but I was told to size up 2 sizes in the sandals. 




  Both Freshly Picked and Kickee Pants both have their own registry.  However, I found that most people liked shopping on Amazon for registry items.  Plus with Amazon, I was able to register for both brands and more.  Overall, I would highly recommend Amazon's baby registry.   Below is a banner that will take you to create a registry if you are interested in trying it out.  They have a great promotion right now with a diaper and wipes contest.  Check it out.  As always,  I would love to hear your feedback on my post and on your experience.
