Ah, the times they are a changing. Rather than worrying that I’m the right shade of summer tan, this modern mom is now battling her former friend: UVA rays. I’ve discovered the cuteness that is baby shorts and wetsuit inspired tops that cover baby skin much more effectively than sunscreen. Mom 4 Life has some adorable options (nom photo above shows lots to choose from in mix and match styles), providing baby with 98% protection from the sun with their Baby Skinz swim shirts and Baby Bloomers swim shorts by UV Skinz.
Before I could snatch those up, Daddy surprised us with darling (and SPF 50!) smartness with a set from Cinco via Target. Cute for many reasons, including ease of pull-on and bright colors. Here’s Fred rocking it with her friend Adam at our Memorial Day BBQ, photo by Dan Kim:
Hi everyone, it’s Tracy. Yikes! I apologize profusely for the lack of postings to Modern Urban Baby :< Life has been so hectic over the last 6 months. Between running my other blogs and traveling back and forth to Europe, I haven’t been giving MUB the tender loving care it deserves. Realizing I need help to keep the site going, I have reached out to one of Brooklyn’s most talented modern moms, Shannon Mechutan.
Shannon, who will be signing on as contributing editor, has a rich history in media. And as a new mom to 9 month old Frederica, she has her finger on the pulse of modern baby gadgets, furniture and fashion. I am really excited about this new partnership and i know you will be too! Shannon will give MUB the attention it deserves, freeing me up to work on the back end of my blogs. Shannon has a brilliant eye for design and I think you will really enjoying reading all about her new discoveries.
Over the next couple weeks you’ll see some transitioning take place as we settle Shannon into her new web space. So stick with us readers!! We promise we’ll have lots of exciting new content for you very soon. If you would like to email Shannon new products or ideas you’d like her to feature click here. Or if you’d just like to say hello, drop her a line. I know she would love to meet her new readers!
Thanks so much readers! I really appreciate your support as MUB continues to develop.

We know winter will soon be over but while there is still a nip in the air, we wanted to post this adorable Faux Mink Baby Fur Coat. We saw it on The Corner Stork site and thought it was just to cute not to pass along. Got a mid-winter Bat Mitzvah to attend? Private school interview? Babies have to dress it up too! We love the sweet little ears on the head and the brown satin ribbon really gives it some class.
This little crane from Buisjes en Beugels is made out off cardboard and wrapped in cotton thread. The ball and wheels are made out off wood and really work! Its made from fragile material so it is not suitable for kids to use as a toy but would look very sweet in your child’s nursery.
We pulled this adorable office setup off of one of our favorite blogs UnClutterer. A small desk in the corner of your home office can provide your children with a place to play giving you the opportunity to answer a few emails while keeping an eye on the kids.
