Outdoorsy Moms: You'll Love these Newborn/Infant Onesies

email this page

You know how it is: there's a little friendly competition among moms and grandmas in the quest for the absolute cutest baby clothes.  We all know it exists, but no one talks about it aloud. You go to grandma's house on Sunday afternoon and she says something like, “I picked up this onesie for you the other day, and it is sooooo cute!”

You look at it, and it says, “I'm kind of a big deal around here.” You laugh, because it is cute.

Come Monday lunch hour, you're at the mall looking at onesies.  It might be entirely subconscious, but you know you're hoping to top that onesie from Grandma. “If anyone's going to put words in my child's mouth, it'll be me!  I gave birth to him!” Agree or disagree, hmm?

Teresa Delfin founded Mountain Mama in part because when she got pregnant, she couldn't find the right clothes that would let her continue kayaking, bouldering or mountain biking (carefully, of course). She's offering these organic cotton onesies, and giving 10% to the Children and Nature Network ( They're wonderfully subtle, only those “in the club” will understand the carabiner, for instance. And that's the appeal.

In fact, I'm thinking maybe we should be working on the next addition to the family . . .

You're right about that! Check this out:

Seth Neilson is the artist who designed these onesies. He's actually making alphabet posters in different themes - alpinist, backpacker, cyclist, etc. Way awesome:
