New For Baby Evolution

Lately it’s been all about change around here. Not a major overhaul, but an evolutionary change – from our factory and fabric all the way down to the hang tag. After five years, our original vision of New For Baby has become even more clear. We listened to you and we listened to ourselves. We’ve perfected each color, each seam, each snap. Even our logo got a bit of a tweak. So it would make sense that the Web site would follow. We love the new site and hope you do too!

So thanks for coming along for the ride. We would not be here without you…

Comfort Sleep Gown Solid

From Squeaky Stroller

New For Baby started as the ultimate newborn layette. The Comfort Sleep Gown was crucial. The snaps at the neckline for easy dressing, the raglan sleeve for a snuggly fit, and the foldoer cuffs for baby’s protection. Oh, and elastic to keep baby’s busy legs snuggled up inside and touching (like in the womb). The fit is slim so that it fits baby properly. As customers fell in love with the sleep gowns, they began asking for bigger sizes (which can be hard to find!).

Just the Basics

From Tangled & True

I had a reader email me about a fairly new company New For Baby. Upon browsing their website, I was sold. It’s difficult to find basics, and they have basics down to an art. Tracksuits, sleepers and one pieces in a variety of great colors.

Better Clothes for Babies
New For Baby
Lyn Huffman and Leigh Rubio

In 2005, when Leigh Rubio, a Portland (Ore.) stay-at-home mother of two, saw her infant daughter accidentally scratching her face, she wished for a simple solution that she couldn’t find: baby shirts with fold-over sleeves. That only added to what she disliked about the little kid clothes on the market. Baby pants were too high so their waistbands pressed into tender, healing belly buttons. Some shirts lacked neckline snaps and were painful to stretch over soft heads. And cloying pastels and duck patterns were everywhere. So Rubio, now 34, and women’s apparel designer Lyn Huffman, 32, teamed up to design a fitted and stylish layette. Targeting newborns also helped them carve out a niche in the crowded children’s apparel market. They scraped together $75,000 in savings, a $50,000 bank loan, and, says Rubio, “supportive husbands who never second-guessed us” to create their first line. Since August, they’ve expanded to offer clothing made in the U.S. for toddlers up to 24 months old. Within a year they turned a profit and now bring in $5,000 to $10,000 monthly through their online store, newforbaby.com.

New For Baby Gets Color Happy

From Cool Mom Picks

Last weekend I had to buy baby gifts for two kids who are now toddlers, because the pressure I put on myself to buy something so useful and practical and cool and life-changing is so great that I end up procrastinating. For more than a year.

Too bad I didn’t know about the awesome new colors and styles at New For Baby. Back when we first wrote about this company, we loved the baby-friendly features on their yummy cotton layette basics like tagless necks, fold-over cuffs, and easy-to-use snaps. And now the company has expanded from basic pink, blue and green into great new colors and patterns, and the product line has been expanded as well.

My only complaint is that the new tracksuit hoodie doesn’t come in adult sizes. -Danielle
