All the Reasons We Really Love J.Crew’s New Baby Collection

10/02/2013 at 03:00 PM ET

You know when you see something that makes your heart melt. Well, that’s what happened when we first saw the new offerings from J.Crew Baby.

Everything from the wool “Très Cool” sweater ($88) by Baby Oeuf to the mini Sperry Top-siders in fun pops of color made us ooh and aah and wish we could stuff our growing 16-month-old back into infant sizes.

Along with cool basics (Parisian-style striped one-pieces!) you won’t find anywhere else, the company teamed up with hip brands including Petit Bateau, 7 AM Enfant, Salt Water, Nature Baby and more to create a collection of high-quality and unique designs using the best materials (Italian cashmere, organic cottons, etc.) available.

Their goal was to make pieces that could be handed down from one child to the next — and they succeeded. Not only are the details carefully crafted, but the sophisticated color palette has a more timeless feel.

Sizes range from newborn to 2 years old. And the prices start at $15 and cap out at about $200 for more gift-y items including this cozy (and bright!) cashmere heart-print blanket ($198).

I can’t believe the prices of these items. $80 for a pack of onesies? Even if I was a billionaire there’s no way I would spend that much on something that’s going to immediately be puked and pooped on.

@Megan…you took the words right out of my mouth! And they grow out of clothes so fast. Why bother?

Just imagining my kids when they were refluxy babies, immediately vomiting all over everything I put them. The idea of an $88 sweater makes me laugh my ass off. How ridiculous. No matter how rich I was, I would not do that. It would be painful to see something so nice covered in SO. MUCH. VOMIT.

I choose to buy the majority of my son’s clothes at second hand shops. Number one, they may get ruined if he spills or gets into a mess. Number two, he will grow out of them in no time and sometimes doesn’t even get a chance to wear them. Why in the world would anyone spend that kind of money on everyday clothes for a baby?

I agree wholeheartedly with you gals. I swear that when my daughter was a baby she would outgrow onsies right after I took them out of the package….or so it seemed. Onsies are the worst thing to sink a lot of money into. All they seem to do is catch spit ups, poop and drool all day long. Granted they are nice in the winter to keep a lil one warm or in the summer to keep a little one cool, but as quickly as they go through them size wise its just not worthy of a huge investment. Heck, I think the onsies at Target and Walmart are outrageously priced now days. As for sweaters, yeah its nice to have a cute little sweater, but realistically they won’t wear it enough to justify almost $90 for them.

On a side note, I swear I had a sweater like that one when I was little…but with rainbow colored hearts on it. Ahh but being a product of the early 80’s was fun.
