Did this month fly by for anyone else? It seems like last week I was writing my last small shop spotlight on Layla Bug Design, but it is that time again! I love supporting small mama owned businesses and sharing them with you. This month I am spotlighting Cuddle Sleep Dream, a shop that specializes in special occasion outfits for boys. Make sure you read to the end for a promo code and a shop credit giveaway!
I have to admit when I found out I was pregnant I was secretly hoping for a boy. Of course, any healthy baby would be amazing, but I really wanted a boy. The only downside to having a boy, in my mind, was that they didn’t have the same adorable baby clothes that the baby girls have (and I think we all know how much I love to shop). Cuddle Sleep Dream changed that for me. This shop is my go-to for every special occasion outfit and is starting to creep into his everyday clothes too.
I truly wish I would have learned about CSD earlier. I found Ryann, who owns Cuddle Sleep Dream on Facebook around Aiden’s first birthday and she had the most perfect outfit for Aiden’s Lumberjack theme first birthday and cake smash photo shoot. Of course, I instantly fell in love with EVERYTHING in her shop. If I ever have another boy I will absolutely shop here from the beginning. From coming home outfits, to baptism outfits, to birthday outfits, to weddings, and even things for everyday Cuddle Sleep Dream has the best stuff. Her 3-month and full-year gift sets are perfect baby shower gifts!
If you have read this blog or follow me on Instagram you have probably seen a lot of Cuddle Sleep Dream especially around the holidays. The cute bodysuits with suspenders and ties/bow ties? The cardigans? They are all from Cuddle Sleep Dream.
The Cuddle Sleep Dream bodysuits are extra special and amazing because the ties/bow ties snap on and are interchangeable with any CSD bodysuit or tee. You can buy one of the bodysuits or tees and then buy several ties for all your special occasions. She carries newborn bodysuits through boys Size 8 t-shirts so once you’ve bought the ties you will only have to buy new tees or bodysuits to attach them to as your little one grows up. There is also the option to get a neck strap so you can use the ties on your own collared shirts.
Cuddle Sleep Dream is not just great for bodysuits/tees and ties. She also makes her own cardigans as I referenced above. She created her own pattern to make a bodysuit style cardigan which looks so adorable. The buttons do not work so there is no awkward bunching or opening if your little one has a Buddha belly like Aiden 🙂 In addition to the cardigans she also has leggings and shorties which are so soft and comfortable. I love that they coordinate with the ties and suspenders.
Ryann also does custom work. If you need something to fit with a first birthday theme she can help create something just for you. I actually asked her if she could make a replica of Dan’s uniform top for the National Police Week 5K that we participate in as part of Police Week. She did an incredible job! It is so special and made Dan’s day when he saw it. Cuddle Sleep Dream is a big part of all of our special occasions.
