New Jammies Book and Baby Clothing, written, illustrated and created by Nicole Weinberger

New Jammies Company

$9 to $37

Ages 12 months to age 6

As national attention to unhealthy childhood eating habits grows, New Jammies founder Nicole Weinberger decided to take a giant leap into the children's wear industry by introducing what she describes as the first collection of certified organic clothing, in the country, while also promoting reading and healthy eating. New Jammies is making its debut with infant and children's pajamas, playtime rompers, and onesie's decorated in one of six colorful and fresh patterns: tangerines, apples, peas, carrots, blueberries, and bananas. Besides the idea that children will associate the food images with eating, there is a powerful story behind the fabrics too. Each garment comes with a keepsake book, authored and illustrated by Weinberger, introducing babies and children to their fruits and vegetables through beautiful pictures, stories, and fairytales. Book titles include "Fruits & Veggies," "Counting My Fruits & Veggies" and "Tales from New Jammie Land," and all are matched to specific age

groups, based on the size of the garment purchased. New Jammies also designs accessory bibs, beanies, and blankets to coordinate with each outfit. The products are available in select U.S. boutiques and online, in sizes 12 months to age 6 and are designed in accordance with consumer safety products regulations. More information can be found at www.newjammies.com.
