If you’re expecting a spring baby, there are a few registry items that are usually pretty obvious: swaddling blankets, long-sleeve onesies, lightweight jackets, etc. However, it is always important to keep in mind how you will safely bundle your new baby for his or her journey home on a brisk spring day.
Earth Day is April 22, and there’s nothing we love more than protecting our environment here at 7AM Enfant.

So, in honor of Earth Day, we compiled a list of baby brands we love that also see eye-to-eye with us on our Earth-friendly beliefs! Continue reading
Spring has finally sprung! It’s time to get outdoors with your children and enjoy the fresh air and all that comes with it. Make the most of your spring with these fun family activities that everyone will enjoy.
1) Pick wildflowers and build a bouquet together. You can even pick white flowers (like Daisies or Queen Anne’s Lace) and set them in water that’s been food colored to watch your petals change colors!
2) Fly a kite on a windy day. If you’re having some issues actually getting it to fly, check out this article for a few helpful tips. Your child will be a kite-wiz in no time.
3) Take a trip to a local farm to pick seasonal produce. Check out this website to find which fruits and veggies are in season and new recipes you can use them in!
4) Plan a picnic in the park. There’s nothing better than getting out with the whole family and enjoying the fresh air.
5) Teach your kids how to skip stones. Now that the rivers and creeks have defrosted, spend some time by the water teaching your children how to get the perfect motion down
6) Take a trip to the zoo to learn about the different animals. It’s a fun outing that everyone in the family can enjoy, no matter their age. Plus, a lot of zoos will be featuring their new baby animals!

Make sure you’re not sending your children out in the rain unprepared, do some quick shopping to buy them all the necessities they’ll need this season, like a raincoat and boots!

4. Keep your feet warm with these cable knit boot socks that fold over your boots so you never have to worry about them slipping down.
5. Keep out the cold and add an extra layer with these wind and waterproof pullovers. Its front pocket is the perfect amount of extra storage too if your child tends to always lose things like their gloves or lunch money.
6. Nothing is worse than having to walk around in wet jeans all day. Keep the rain out with these waterproof rain pants, complete with an elastic waistband for easy pull on and off. Could it get any simpler?
7. Keep your baby dry and warm in the Pookie Poncho. Not only is it waterproof, but it triples as a car seat cover, baby carrier, and stroller-cover, so your child is always staying dry no matter how you get to your destination.

We are amongst good, respected and sought after feedback after our very own Baby Shield received a great accolade! It recently received a Seal of Approval from the Family Review Centre and words to these effect, were noted!
‘FROM OUR REVIEWER:
From Arizona to Alaska, your baby will now be set for every temperature they may face when out enjoying the great expanse of God’s green earth with you. Baby Shield is awesome. It offers different levels of warmth and protection in a jiffy, just by adding or removing layers. You can then use the layers separately as well, as a blanket in the stroller, carseat etc.
Style and design offer great appeal and the functionality is both practical and outrageously beneficial to those who battle the wicked winter climates. The lightweight insulation cover is perfect for milder temps and the quilted insulation cover is for those blustery cold days and nights when it is all you can do to keep them warm.
Perfect for ages 0-3, with 3 sizes being offered. (S – 0-6 mo, M – 6-12 mo, and L – 1-3 yrs)
Features faux down insulation. Offers water repellant protection from the weather. Features a five point harness system so it can be used in most, if not all carseats and strollers. Has hook and loop straps for ease of maneuvering. Also has a large front pocket and is machine washable.’
Each year 7 A.M. Enfant strives to create pieces that are full of life, fun and eye catching in order to keep babies warm during the winter months. Their new Neon collection certainly does the trick to make one smile and feel more vibrant!
With Sandy having just hit NYC, there is even more need for an upbeat positive attitude within our communities and the more we can do for each other the better! Why not help out at a local school, clear your closets, and give things to those who need it during these bleak times. 7 A.M. Enfant will be donating cozy items to those families in Staten Island, Far Rockaway and Coney Island who really have lost so much.
Heading into the winter as the first few snowflakes fall in New York and beyond, 7 A.M. Enfant’s team have put their heads together to share their tips for staying warm, keeping cozy, and most of all surviving the next month or so!
Top 5 Winter Tips from 7 A.M. Enfant
Keeping the Kids Warm
– Make sure their mittens have strings on – never fear of losing them
– Tuck their vests into their trousers – no draft, and extra heat!
– Entice running races whilst playing outdoors, to keep the blood warm.
– Hot milk at bedtime, with extra blankets – but keep the window open for the fresh air…they’ll never notice!
-A hot toddy with the juice of one whole lemon, some honey, and something stronger if you need, when you are feeling cold and fluey before bed, always does the trick.
-Put on a pair of cashmere socks for that extra insulation and luxurious feel.
– Don’t go out into the cold with wet hair….
– Eat what’s in season if possible – it always tastes so much better, and the goodness is palatable.
– Moisturize everywhere! The harsh winds can be brutal, so put on those creams to all exposed skin, so you can be glowing when you come indoors!
Love, enjoy, create. Happy holidays,
