Little Me Kid's Clothing Review *Holiday Gift Guide*

Thanks Little Me for the review item to help with this post

As we approach the upcoming Holiday season, Mama's Baby Cupcakes has teamed up with several companies we think would be a great fit to purchase/wear/give to others in the upcoming months. Thanks to each and every sponsor showcased in our Holiday Gift Guide, and if you see the cute button above then you know its Holiday approved!
At Little Me®, we create unique clothing that celebrates those fleeting years when newborns transform into young toddlers. We are constantly developing innovative apparel, accessories and products that nurture discoverhood. We never use tweed, leather or any other “grown-up” material. We use fabrics like soft cotton, terrycloth and velour. We believe babies should always be comfortable, snuggly and safe, free to do what they do best: play, sleep and thrive.

I have come to have a love for leopard print clothing and accessories. Any time I can find it in a cute outfit for myself or the girls, I feel like I have to have it! While looking around on the Little Me website one day, I saw the above 3 piece jacket outfit with leopard print and my eyes about popped out of my head! I loved the bright pinks in the outfit and how well it went with the snow leopard type look, so after emailing Little Me, I was indeed sent this adorable outfit for our littlest girl Mya. 

Mya just turned 10 months old yesterday (Oct 10) and I chose to get her this outfit in size 18 months. Since we live in Indiana, our weather is up and down from Sept-November, so I wanted to get something that she could wear with the changing weather conditions. Since its light weight with a fluffy jacket, it's perfect for Fall, and then once Winter hits I wanted to still be able to use the shirt and pants as a cute option during outings when she'll need a winter coat. I chose to get a big size so that I could ensure the outfit would fit through the winter time, and also the possibly of some minor shrinking when washed and dried. She is also almost 20lbs in size and can sometimes wear bigger clothing than her current age, so I wanted to prepare in case she hit another big growth spurt around her birthday in December. 

I was very surprised to see that after putting it on her for the first time, it fits her!! The pants are a little long, but that's a battle with all our children no matter their age. The shirt fits her perfectly, hitting right at her waist. I'm not sure about drying the shirt because all cotton shrinks, but the pants won't be an issue. The jacket does come lower than the shirt and she'll have plenty of room to grow. She's not a fan of the hat on, but when she's in her infant seat, I can use the hat to and from the car when out and about. Mya also really like the snap buttons on the jacket since they're a gold color, and it was hard to get her to look at me because she kept playing with them. 

This outfit has a long sleeve pink shirt, black elastic top pull on pants, and a puffy leopard print hooded vest. Details include gold buttons, a black bow around vest and a faux fur trim around the hood.
Machine Washable dry flat. 100% Cotton Interlock. 

Retailing for $48 on the Little Me website, this outfit is pretty pricey. I'm not quite sure why their clothing is so expensive, but they have a wide variety of items to choose from for boys and girls. Their prices vary from $16-$48, and they offer sizes preemie-24months.
