In a neighborhood rife with baby stores, Argentinian-export Baby Cotton distinguishes itself by producing all of its clothing from 100% Pima cotton, a silky Peruvian variety revered for its softness and warmth. Stocking higher-end pieces sized for newborns through 8-year-olds, the shop is arranged by gender, with casual, playdate-ready attire hanging in neat rows and meticulously folded in white cubby shelves. Striped button-down shirts, baby blue polos, ruffle-hemmed jumpers, and cozy snap-up body suits printed with princesses, cars, or flowers are available in a traditional color palette of pastel pink and blue, and a selection of tiny Baby Cotton sneakers and sandals sits along the far wall. But the boutique’s best seller is its velvety onesie pajamas, which new and expecting Upper East Side parents buy in bulk.
