Qué Lindos: Cute, Cool and Fun Latino Baby Wear
I’ve searched far and wide for original (and adorable) Latino baby wear, or toddler or baby clothing with bilingual messages, precious Latino images or even in keeping with traditional styles.
Why am I on the hunt? For a few reasons. In part, it’s because I love highlighting creative and different fashions. I could shop at regular kids’ stores all day long, but give me a cool and unique onesie from a hard-to-find online boutique and I’ll love it forever. (And then I’ll go back and place order after order.) Next, I adore promoting Latino entrepreneurs. People bold and brilliant enough to create their own businesses and bring shoppers something unexpected deserve to be celebrated. Third, because I’m expecting my second little one! My mommy brain is working overtime to find fun baby items from piñata-themed onesies, to bilingual baby books, to indigenous-style blankets and carriers. I’m a little obsessed.
If you or someone you know has a little one and a creative fashion spirit, start your shopping here.
Onesies from BarbacoApparel
I feel like I’ve been waiting forever for BarbacoAparrel to launch kids’ sized T-shirts. Specifically, I’ve wanted a bean & cheese kids’ T for my 6 year old, who would survive solely on bean and cheese tacos if I let him. A few months ago the company made my dreams come true, not only by launching kids’ sizes, but also onesies. In typical BarbacoApparel fashion, their designs are clever and cute. I need a Paleta Time onesie immediately. Onesies and kids’ Ts are $20.

Onesies and T-shirts from Dos Borreguitas
A new find on my Internet shopping quest was the adorable kids’ fashion boutique Dos Borreguitas. The designs are so sweet, you don’t have to speak Spanish or be Latino to want one. As the company itself says, “It’s for everyone and anyone who appreciates growing up in a multilingual and multicultural world and wants to pass that on to the children in their lives.” Who doesn’t want that? As an added bonus, the online shop is having a sale right now, but normally the baby wear runs from $20 to $22. These are a few of their offerings that I adore the most.

Baby and Toddler Dresses and Bibs from Nativa
What I love about Nativa Fine Mexican Clothing is their dedication to curating beautiful hand-tooled leather handbags and gorgeous embroidered blouses and dresses for women. Many items are even faire trade, which endears them to me even more. So when I discovered that they had toddler and some baby items too, I knew it was likely going to be as beautiful and elegant as other Nativa offerings. I most certainly wasn’t wrong. I’m a boy mom, but wish I had a little girl to dress un in these gorgeous little dresses. Instead, I’ll shop for some of the cutest little boy guayaberas I’ve ever seen. Dresses run from $30 and up, and the rest of their offerings from bibs to Otomi style rompers run from $24 and up.
