9 Baby Brands Having Major Swimsuit Sales Right Now!

And today, we want to show you the creme de la creme in the baby and kids swimwear department. That's right!

So now is actually the time to snatch up some swim essentials for your little one at discounted prices! Here are 9 baby brands that are having a swimwear sale right now! Don't miss out.


1. Popupshop

All of Popupshop’s swimwear is on sale and it’s amazing! Your kids will love the prints, and you’ll feel good knowing the swimwear is made of sustainable UV ray protectant fabric. We love the unisex Swim Pants Tiger ($16) and the Swim Blouse Classic Leo ($26). For girls the Classic Swimsuit Water Flower ($21) and the Ruffles Bikini Rosa Mermaid ($23) are sporty, practical and adorable. Popupshop has great customer service and free shipping on orders over $50 USD.

2. Rylee & Cru

This season’s Rylee & Cru swimwear collection is particularly beautiful but hard to find, as many of the styles are already sold out. The sunset colors and beach life shape are lovely. I searched and found the Sealife Swim Shorts on sale at Wee Mondine, for $31. I love shades of pink for boys and girls.

3. Gap

Stripe Ruffle One-Piece - navy stripe

This Gap Stripe Ruffle One-Piece is another one of our personal favorites. It’s classic but fun. Plus with the code STYLE, you get 40 percent off your purchase, making this swimsuit extra cheap!

4. Hanna Andersson

The Hanna Anderson Rash Guard Suit is a tried & true choice for baby. It's easy to get on and off with the full zipper. The suit covers a lot of skin to protect baby from the sun, blocking 99% of UVA/UVB Rays. The Sunblock Stripey Rash Guard Suit in navy is a classic and gender-neutral pick you’ll be able to pass it on to younger siblings. Go for the matching Sunblock Swimmy Sun Hat. This ensemble isn't on sale, but the brand is offering free shipping for the next 4 hours, so go snatch it up now!

5. JCrew

You can’t go wrong with stripes, and this JCrew Girl’s Long-Sleeve One-Piece offers sun protection for long days at the pool or beach. This one is well reviewed by parents with fair skinned children that love to swim! With the code TUESDAY, you'll get 30 percent off!

6. Bobo Choses

These Bobo Choses Cloud Swim Shorts on sale for $28.20 are the ones I want for my guys. The color is beautiful and the cloud pattern is fun. The boys like a shorter short as they get cold easily, so the length looks just right. Smallable is a European Family Concept Store with tons of swimwear on sale for the whole family. Look here to window shop or snag a small brand designer piece on sale.

7. H&M

Everything that H&M sells is already very affordable, so imagine when you can snatch up items at a discounted price. These H&M Swim Shorts has the perfect length and with a fun and classic summer print! Plus, they're on sale for $4.99!

8. Land's End

The Land’s End Boys Short Sleeve Rash Guard, which is $11.97 right now, is hands down my favorite Rash Guard. The neck is nice and high - covering that area that gets too much sun. It also is the perfect sleeve length. My kids have it in white, and it goes with all sorts of bottoms. While it’s listed under the boy’s section, the shirt is available in lots of colors and is pretty gender neutral.

9. Oeuf

A lot of the Oeuf girls suits have also sold out, but I found the Ruffle Halter at Fawn Shoppe in a few sizes and on sale for $37! This is a sweet pink piece perfect for your little one. Sarah Bean is a North Brooklyn mom to three boys. Sarah has a design degree from Parsons School of Design and worked in early childhood education before becoming a mom. Her focus is on all things related to babies, kids and design – especially interiors and clothing.

I felt lost as a new mother, but babywearing helped me find myself again

I wish someone had told me before how special wearing your baby can be, even when you have no idea how to do it.

My first baby and I were alone in our Brooklyn apartment during a particularly cold spring with yet another day of no plans. My husband was back at work after a mere three weeks of parental leave (what a joke!) and all my friends were busy with their childless lives—which kept them too busy to stop by or check in (making me, at times, feel jealous).

It was another day in which I would wait for baby to fall asleep for nap number one so I could shower and get ready to attempt to get out of the house together to do something, anything really, so I wouldn't feel the walls of the apartment close in on me by the time the second nap rolled around. I would pack all the diapers and toys and pacifiers and pump and bottles into a ginormous stroller that was already too heavy to push without a baby in it .

Then I would spend so much time figuring out where we could go with said stroller, because I wanted to avoid places with steps or narrow doors (I couldn't lift the stroller by myself and I was too embarrassed to ask strangers for help—also hi, New Yorkers, please help new moms when you see them huffing and puffing up the subway stairs, okay?). Then I would obsess about the weather, was it too cold to bring the baby out? And by the time I thought I had our adventure planned, the baby would wake up, I would still be in my PJs and it was time to pump yet again.

Slowly, but surely, and mostly thanks to sleep deprivation and isolation, I began to detest this whole new mom life. I've always been a social butterfly. I moved to New York because I craved that non-stop energy the city has and in the years before having my baby I amassed new friends I made through my daily adventures. I would never stop. I would walk everywhere just to take in the scenery and was always on the move.

Now I had this ball and chain attached to me, I thought, that didn't even allow me to make it out of the door to walk the dog. This sucks, I would think regularly, followed by maybe I'm not meant to be a mom after all.

It's science: Why your baby stops crying when you stand up

A fascinating study explains why.

When your baby is crying, it feels nearly instinctual to stand up to rock, sway and soothe them. That's because standing up to calm babies is instinctual—driven by centuries of positive feedback from calmed babies, researchers have found.

"Infants under 6 months of age carried by a walking mother immediately stopped voluntary movement and crying and exhibited a rapid heart rate decrease, compared with holding by a sitting mother," say authors of a 2013 study published in Current Biology.

Even more striking: This coordinated set of actions—the mother standing and the baby calming—is observed in other mammal species, too. Using pharmacologic and genetic interventions with mice, the authors say, "We identified strikingly similar responses in mouse pups as defined by immobility and diminished ultrasonic vocalizations and heart rate."
