Products We Love, Made in the USA

Products We Love, Made in the USA | DMMBHow much did you love the Olympics this year?! Two weeks for all things patriotic: watching our athletes, national pride, cheering with every gold medal win, and drinking Coors Light while waving around American flags made in….China?!

Last week I cleaned out our playroom and was only somewhat surprised to learn that the majority of our toys and other miscellaneous baby gear were produced in faraway countries like China and India. I understand it from a business stand point. Production is cheaper in these countries, which allows businesses to compete by offering products at the lowest possible price point. But I’m willing to pay a bit more for products made in the USA knowing that these companies create jobs and have a smaller carbon footprint.

Here are some businesses I’ve discovered that design and produce fabulous products for baby and mama, right here in the USA!

Clothing

June and January

Products We Love, Made in the USA | DMMB

This Utah based company makes fun children’s clothing in lots of bright colors, like “wasabi” and “bubblegum”. We have several of their swing dresses, which are great all year long- just pair them with their thick cotton tights in the cooler months. I often find myself reaching for our J&J pieces in the morning because they are easy to mix and match and made of a soft, stretchy cotton.

This woman-founded, women-run, women’s clothing company is based in New York and designs and manufactures all their gorgeous clothing in NYC. Their clothes are PERFECT for the professional, on-the-go mom – and many pieces are even machine washable (all the praise hands)! Their clothes are cut for real women and many are even bump-friendly! DMMB’s founder is a fan, and we think you will be too!

Sonnet James
