Metro Mama & Metro Baby

By Kim Taylor

September is when children gear up for another year of reading and writing, so let them look smart in the process. Here are a few essential items that receive an A+ for style and sensibility.

Tsukihoshi has been awarded the American Podiatric Medical Association Seal of Acceptance for promoting healthy foot development, as a child’s foot isn’t simply a miniature of an adult’s foot. Their shoe collection is designed exclusively for the comfort and health of a child’s growing foot. Check out the extensive lineup at for boys and girls, and toddlers and sprinting young men alike. Well crafted and comfortable, these shoes are a smart investment.

Another source for gold star-worthy back to school items is The Children’s Place, which offers everything from reasonably priced informal jeans and all cotton-shirts to Halloween costumes and dress clothes. Sizes range from 6months for babies to size 14, so you can outfit your entire brood in one fell swoop. Visit to shop and view the lineup.

Back to school also unfortunately ushers in the possibility of lice, so keep your child protected with Lice Shield, a new line of hair care products demonstrated to repel the little critters while cleansing and conditioning hair. You can also procure a leave-in spray for extra defense. Visit to find this helpful product line.

Let your little guy be comfortable from head to toe as he kicks off another year of learning and leaping.
