Mommy Must Haves

Petite Plume

You probably saw Prince George bedecked in his bedtime finest when he met the President several months ago. Dress your little one like royalty in Petite Plume's pajamas and robes. Even better is the new adult collection so you and your kids can match in the morning. All online orders arrive in a beautiful box with a bow. You can also go pick up a pair of PJ's at Little Birdies Boutique right on Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown. petite-plume.com

Munch Mitt

The Munch Mitt is the undroppable teething mitt for your little one. Made with a medical grade silicone, the mitt is also BPA and phthalate free. Just Velcro the mitt onto your baby's hand and she can chew with impunity, and you don't need to worry about having to pick it up off the floor. The mitt is interchangeable between hands and helps baby soothe herself when those gums hurt. Available at local retailers and munchmitt.com.
