Made in America: Baby.

A few weeks ago, when my husband and I were discussing buying things for our baby, we made a commitment to buy as many items as possible that have been made right here in America.  Not an easy task!  But totally doable.  There is a new trend in this country of buying American and I love it!  Get this.  The average American spends $700 on Christmas gifts during the holidays.  If just $64 of that $700 was spent on American-made products we could create 200,000 jobs.  Imagine if we did this throughout the year and not just at Christmas.  We could start a revolution!  Let's do it.  Buy American.  Just look around!  You'll be surprised at what is made here.

All of these products on this board are made in America.  Yes.  I know.  They might be a tad bit more expensive than the stuff made in China but you can feel good about keeping money and jobs in this country.      
  1. Land of Nod.  Maple Anderson Crib. 
  2. Basic Brilliance. Yellow Romper.
  3. Basic Brilliance. Sage Long-sleeved Onsie.
  4. Mabo Kids.  Organic Cotton Textured Graphic Tee.
  5. American Apparel.  Light Pink Cotton Onsie. 
Because I am a nerd, I think I will start doing a weekly Made in America post.  Your thoughts?  I know.  I know.  NERD ALERT!


  1. LOVE the idea... not many options in Roswell!! However, some of my Christmas was just purchased at the Land of Nod...! I do love that place (AND the baby bump) !! ;)

  2. Awww, this is such an adorable round-up!!! Loving everything! xoxo

  3. These are all so cute! I was going to suggest American Apparel but looks like you're already on it!

  4. What a great idea! I may have to hop on the bandwagon too! Congrats on being in your third tri!

    I will be sharing the homemade stretch mark cream Monday :)

  5. I think this is a great idea. I was looking at tags on my clothes and the majority of them are made in Indonesia. Excuse to shop for new American made clothes? Sure!

  6. I LOVE this! And as a fellow nerd, I would totally support a weekly Made in America post :)
