Launched in the spring, Bushel & Peck is the newest addition to Sweet Fletcher Designs, a company known for the stylish baby slings that owner Ashley Waldvogel Gaddy designed for her own baby.

Your babe can make a statement without saying a word with “because i said so”TM, a line of apparel that allows your child’s achievements, personality, and warnings to be known. Proud that your little one is learning to crawl or that your toddler is out of his crib? Want to tell the world what came first, or how smart your older child is? Now’s your chance!
Shirts run from infant small (size 3-6 months) to child’s large (size 12), depending on the saying, which could be “this is how I roll” or “too smart for my own good.” All shirts can be purchased through retail partners or online at www.bcauseisaidso.com.
