Finds for Your Baby Fashionista (

(This “Baby Fashionista” article was published in last December 2009)

Shopping for your baby can be a tedious task if you’re a newbie mom, but you can’t go wrong with buying products that are designed by actual moms who are aware of what you need-and want.

For the modern moms out there, Proud Mama Concepts offers creative and fashionable solutions to parenting. This is the brainchild of Rianna Roces-Trinidad and Sheryll Ang-Tiong- real-life moms who addressed the needs and wants of moms by creating items like the Reversible Nursing Cover and Funkyfeet Not-Quite-Shoes, among others.

All About Funkyfeet

Have you ever seen those cute little socks that look like shoes? Well, these not-quite-shoes are what they call Funkyfeet. These come in adorable designs like Little Miss Mary Janes (bestseller), Retro Ruffles, Bows on My Toes, Super Sneakers (bestseller), Li’l Loafers, and Fashionista Flats. They also have what they call the Patternista Edition, which offers two fun designs-Candy Janes and Skaterboy.

Funkyfeet fits most babies from 0 to 12 months, and these come in pre-packed box sets already, complete with built-in gift tags. A box of three pairs retails at P320, while a box of five costs P500. The great thing about this is that you can customize your own set of Funkyfeet for the same price!

The Truth About Funkytubes

Funkytubes Playsleeves are actually arm and leg warmers that provide minor protection, and not to mention a lot of attitude to your ‘lil fashionista’s attire. It offers a trendy and practical solution for diaper changes (there’s no need to remove them!) or during potty training. Aside from its aesthetic value, it also keeps those little limbs warm so you can do away with their sweaters and leggings. These Funkytubes are very lightweight too-they give some protection from the sun, insect bites and minor scrapes.

The Funkytubes come in one size only but they can fit babies, toddlers, tweens, and adults as well. You can choose from a variety of cool designs like Crayons, Sailor Stripes, Strawberry Sundae, True Blue, Hi Ho Silver, Sugar ‘n Spice, Merry Winkle, and School Spirit. Each pair retails at P380.

Both Funkyfeet and Funkytubes are locally made, and are created using a soft material that makes it really comfortable to wear. Who says you can’t combine style and comfort for your baby?
