Kiss This

It all started with a kiss.

Next thing you knew, you were ten months in and two centimeters dilated.

Consider planting your next one on Smoochie Baby, a new boutique in the heart of baby-booming Williamsburg.

The cheerful shop is stocked with the best in modern kids’ fashion, accessories, and furniture. Find funky cashmere separates by Trash-a-Porter, alongside gear du jour like the Orbit Baby, next to a red miniguitar by Schoenhut (complete with a downsized amp). There are even movies to keep kids occupied while parents shop.

Really sealing the deal — with a kiss, of course.
