Baby Wit | About Us
the baby wit story
babywit.com was founded by a stay-at-home mom with a sense of humor who refused to resign herself to dressing her daughter in bland T-shirts covered in bears or other equally uninteresting creatures.
babywit.com creates quirky, eclectic T-shirts that show the world your baby has serious style. We have the largest collection of comic infant and toddler T-shirts on the Internet. We were tired of seeing cute rainbows, hearts and bears on baby shirts. Especially bears. We hated bears. And so, in 2003, Rosalee started babywit.com, a company that designs baby T-shirts with an adult sensibility.
Our T-shirts are made by American Apparel. They cost us a little more, but they're made in a sweatshop-free environment and are of better quality than anything else we've tested. (Plus, both the black infant tees and raglan-sleeved toddler shirts are tragically hip.) We hand-press our T-shirts using retro iron-on transfers. (Those of us who lived through the 70's will remember the decal shops in the local shopping mall.)
Rosalee Rester launched an eco-friendly line of infant and toddler clothing that is made from sustainable fabrics and is hand printed using non-toxic water based inks. Everything is cut, sewn and printed right here in Portland, OR. Also, check out the new Yankers line...sustainable fabrics and no snaps or zippers!

Rosalee is the big, mean, scary boss! When she’s not using her bullhook to keep everyone in line, she is lovingly caring for her cute and cuddly children. Clearly a fashionista, Rosalee has a keen sense for appropriate dress in the workplace. Her interests include torturing tech support people and secretly drinking so much coffee her employees fear an impending diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease.

*This past year I've had to lay off my last employee so it's just me running the shop now. Yes, I'm the one answering the phones, your emails, making all your shirts, folding them, packing them and labeling them. Sorry for the crappy gift wrapping. I seem to be lacking in that department. Patience is appreciated! A shout out and hearty thank you to all my current customers.
