One of the best parts of expecting a newborn is setting up a sweet little snug nursery. That’€™s why we heart lulu&coco.

This adorable little shop in Wellington West is a cozy nook, featuring a wall full of fabric choices. We found every colour and pattern we could think of, even tough-to-match tones like neutral greys and hot pinks, and that cute turtle pattern in the back would be perfect for a best friend’€™s baby shower. Saw something you loved on Pinterest or in an old photograph? It can be magically recreated by Denise, mompreneur, owner, designer and seamstress.

While you’€™re there, pick up some high-quality, handmade receiving blankets’€”we loved their large size, perfect for swaddling or as a crib mattress protector. We couldn’€™t resist a few of Denise’€™s adorably printed quilted bibs either’€”soft, washable and big enough to protect from the worst spills. The handcrafted, oversized baby bath towels and super soft bathrobes are so very sweet too.

It’€™s not just bedding and baby gear that can be found here’€”custom clothing of all shapes and sizes is deftly tailored at lulu&coco. Favourite items can be recreated in a larger size, beloved jackets or snowsuits can be repaired or items from a magazine spread can be copied. There’€™s an interesting stock of pre-made items by exclusive brands, such as Girl Gotch, brightly coloured boy-style underpants for your little tomboy, and Green Kids organic sleepers, the perfect complement to snuggly custom bedding.

Now that’€™s what we call cozy.
