In Steel Magnolias, Olympia Dukakis's character said what separated us from the animals was our "ability to accessorize." And today's Moms can accessorize like nobody's business. Check out Baby Cyber Shop for organic slings to keep baby close.

There are also Mama Jackets and Kinder Coats that are made for the two of you.
And for those who are breastfeeding, visit Kate's Caring Gifts for Natural Nipple Butter, which is also safe for your baby.
Pure Beginnings stocks comfortable organic clothes in neutral colors. Onesies, caps, and receiving blankets are all 100 percent organic and grown without pesticides, so you can be sure they won't irritate baby's skin.

And finally, the diapers. There's no shortage to choose from: Momma's Baby has cloth diapers, Fuzzi Bunz Diapering System for potty training, and diaper accessories, like wipes and fasteners.
