We’re going to make a bold statement here: we’re declaring navy as this season’s top color trend for your baby registry. Elegant, minimalistic and tasteful, navy makes every piece of baby gear feel fresh and new this fall.
Why? Well, it’s possibly because navy is the new neutral on every single front. It’s gender-neutral; this elegant, minimalistic color will work for boy or girl. It’s nursery neutral; there’s not another color that navy doesn’t complement with ease. It’s even baby neutral; we’re pretty sure that every human, even the teeny tiny ones, looks fantastic in navy.
So make some room on your baby registry for the hue that looks perfect on just about every piece of baby gear….in every nursery…and in every Instagram post of your baby. We think navy deserves it’s time to shine.
Here’s some of our favorite navy baby gear to help style you -- and your little one! -- this season.
1. coco go 3-in-1 bouncer
Our coco go is the quintessential baby bouncer. This 3-in-1 combo keeps your baby safe and comfy when fixed upright, or used as a lounger or bouncer. It’s super lightweight and folds totally flat, meaning you can pop it in it’s carrying case for a trip or slide it under the sofa for a little extra space. Our organic navy lounger is a fan favorite and has been flying off the shelf this season!
2. Hello Sunshine Bedtime Sleeper
So soft, you’ll want one for yourself! This darling sleep sack is perfect for the little sunshine in your life. The whimsical watercolor pattern is both sweet and sophisticated and we love the top-to-toe zipper -- so helpful when wrangling a wiggly baby. And because it’s made from breathable, 100% open-weave cotton muslin, this sleep sack gets softer and softer each time you wash it. A silver lining in the never-ending cycle of baby laundry.
3. Bubula Diaper Pail
Okay, wow. Finally a pail you don’t have to get rid of after your baby grows out of diapers. The Bubula Diaper Pail definitely gives you more bang for your buck, because it transitions to a regular trash pail after it’s diaper duty is through. Plus, get this. It’s made of steel and aluminum and closes air-tight, so it doesn’t absorb odors and it doesn’t leak odors, either. *Adds to cart*
4. Tula Explore Baby Carrier
Our favorite baby carrier in the most neutral-y shade of navy blue. Name a better duo, we’ll wait. The Tula Explore has every carry position your baby will need, including facing out. It has padding where you need it to keep you comfy while baby-wearing and features quick adjustments so you can pass the baby off to another wearer easily. A large mesh panel also provides added ventilation to keep everyone cool. And it can be used for babies from 7-45 pounds, no infant insert needed.
5. Niche Organic Nursing PIllow
A pillow perfect for nursing and beyond! The user reviews on this organic nursing pillow speak volumes: “Not only is the Niche nursing pillow great for nursing in every position, but I can also use it to read books to my older kids when they sit on my lap or use it to get some work done on my laptop after the kids go to bed.” As if you needed another reason to fall for this pillow, it’s allergen free and made of certified organic material.
6. bloom x Lewis pods organic fitted crib sheet
Bring some color-trending sophistication into your little one’s sleeping space with our high-end, limited edition bedding collection with Lewis Home. The Brooklyn-based textile company sources only the best fabrics. Our bloom x Lewis sheets are light and breathable, made of gorgeous organic cotton percale. We love how Lewis’ hand-drawn navy pod pattern gives a nod to the ultimate mother -- mother nature. Need a bigger pop of navy blue in your nursery?

7. the pop Pacifier
It’s never been more important to protect your little ones from germs, and the pop pacifier does just that. The nipple of this paci stays extended while your baby is using it and even when taking a break but if the pacifier takes a tumble, it pops right back inside it’s protective bubble. This 100% silicone pacifier only needs washed a few times a day and is dishwasher safe. Plus, it’s just kind of cool, right? Grandma will be impressed.
8. modern silicone bib
Talk about easy cleaning! We love, love, love these minimalistic silicone bibs by Bibito. It’s all made of one smooth piece of silicone, so no crevices for food to find its way into. The bib makes your baby stain resistant, keeping sauces off your little cutie’s clothes, and the bib is also stain resistant itself, which means it won’t look grimy after a few weeks like many other brands. Best of all, Bibito has a buy one, give two program: for each bib purchased, they provide two meals to combat hunger.
