Mama Maker: Whitney from SproutFit

American Made Baby Brands

As new mamas know all too well, babies basically live in onesies and leggings for the first 6 months of their life. Whitney of SproutFit wants to extend the life of this starter set of nostalgia-inducing clothes through the first year (and beyond). She’s producing organic American made baby clothes that your little ones won’t outgrow until they’re celebrating another birthday.

SproutFit’s adjustable baby clothes come in 0-12 months and 12-24 months so you don’t need to change out your baby’s wardrobe every few weeks. With their flexible sizes and colors, you can build a baby “capsule” wardrobe for any body type (something I appreciate as the mom of a tall and lean toddler).

Wil and Frida began as a creative outlet for Diana to make clothes for her daughters, just as her grandmother did. “She was a great inspiration to me, I was very close to my grandmother,” says Diana.

Breakfast bars of champions

In search of a toddler-friendly breakfast option for busy mornings that’s not too crumbly or sugary, I went to good old Pinterest for inspiration. 

Unfortunately a lot of the easy recipe options called for honey or other sweeteners. So I took a cue from the deliciously simple, classic combo of oats and smashed bananas. 

(Plus peanut butter, but any nut or seed butter will work just fine.)

I hand mixed the following ingredients and then baked it in a muffin tin at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

You can also cut down on dishes by folding the ingredients together over parchment paper in a baking dish and then cut it into bars afterwards.

1 cup oatmeal

1 banana

1/2 cup peanut butter
