Remember those first photos of Brangelina’s baby Maddox? He was wearing a Black Sabbath tee – quite the rock’n’roll infant. Kingston Stefani has been papped in some seriously urban babywear, ditto the Beckham trio.
To clad your baby in similarly funky attire eschew the high street and embrace the internet. To help you in your mission (and because we love cool kids’ clothes) we’ve done some internet shuftying and come up with these veritable gems:
Nippaz with Attitude What’s it about: threads so hip you’ll feel upstaged by your baby
Our favourite: Notorious B.I.B. Prices: £9.99 for a (seriously cool) bib. Nice stuff: check out the Anarchy In The Nursery gift pack which includes Love and Hate mittens.
Kit n Kin at Freddy Says What’s it about: ethically produced clothing featuring hip photography. Our favourite: ‘Bling girl’ motif (think Mr T chains). Prices: £15.50 for a vest. Nice stuff: we’re loving the fab packaging with swing tag and recycled boxes.
Stardust Kids What’s it about: personalised tees and sleepsuits that go “one louder”
Our favourite: ‘I Love Uncle Ray More Than Uncle Sid’. Prices: £16.50. Nice stuff: they also sell kids’ electric guitars (with built-in amp and speakers).
Twisted Twee What’s it about: “Cheerfully sardonic” designs which your mother-in-law will absolutely not find funny. Our favourite: ‘Half pint’ T-shirt (with matching Pint T-shirt for Dad). Prices: £15 for the tee. Nice stuff: Everything. The whole site is a tribute to cool. Check out the Racing Pantlets and the embroidered Sleepy Head pillowcases.
Finally keep a look out for how these famous mums and dads will be cladding their babes this summer, with this quick celebrity pregnancy update. Congratulations to Halle Berry who gave birth to a longed-for daughter on Sunday 17 March. Halle and partner Gabriel Aubry settled for the unusual name Nahla Ariela Aubry. Nahla is Arabic in origin and means drop of water.
Congratulations also to la Lopez and Marc Anthony on the birth of their twins Max and Emme on February 22nd. Cue the meeja scrum with The People coughing up $6m for the first pictures.
Minnie Driver announced her pregnancy on Jay Leno’s chat show but refuses to say who’s the daddy…
What’s happened to Myleene Klass? She’s shed a whopping four stone since the birth of Ava in August but appears to have all but lost her legendary I’m A Celebrity curves.
Nicole Richie and Christina Aguilera both gave birth to their first babies on January 11 – Nicole to Harlow and Christina to Max. Both women are in stunning shape but so pneumatic are the bosoms of Ms Aguilera that we can’t help suspecting a cheeky enhancement.
Lisa Marie Presley has just announced she’s four and a half months pregnant with twins by fourth husband Michael Lockwood. She has two children model Riley Keough, 18, and Benjamin Storm, 15, from her marriage to ex-husband Danny Keough.
And finally congrats to Mike Oldfield on the birth of baby number seven but Mr Fertile, aged 55, is the first to admit how exhausting he’s finding it!
