There are dozens of onesies out there that all have the same mass-produced puns and pictures. But if you want a personalized and friendly onesie for your baby, Absolute Baby is the place to go. They will provide a personal experience to make sure you get the onesie that you want, and that fits your baby’s personality. Absolute Baby will be at the New York Baby Show on May 14th and 15th, at Pier 92.
The nation’s biggest show for expectant and new families, the New York Baby Show is a wonderful family-friendly mega-event featuring everything to do with maternity, baby, and toddler. From top products to trusted parenting experts, the New York Baby Show welcomes thousands of expectant and new parents from New York City, the Tri-State area, and beyond!
Tickets to the New York Baby Show are $30 per family, and $20 per individual.
We spoke with Stephanie Vega, owner, creator and designer of Absolute Baby products, to learn more.
For someone unfamiliar with Absolute Baby, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
Absolute Baby is your one stop shop for custom and month onesies! My goal is to bring the parents’ vision to life. Whether it’s a request for a single onesie to reveal the gender of the baby, propose to the Mom-To-Be, wish grandpa a happy 50th, or match the month-to-month onesies with the Babies Nursery, or anything else. The parents think of something unique they would like the onesie to say, or a design they would like, and I will try my best to fulfill their request.
What is the background of Absolute Baby? When did it start, and how has it evolved since then?
I wanted to create a personalized gift to help parents capture the precious moments of their babys first year. I found myself always seeing the same baby items on the expecting mother registry. I researched month-to-month onesies, and I only came across monthly stickers. I made my first order for a friend. All her friends and family members would ask her where she got those monthly onesies. Because of the positive feedback, I decided to create a shop on Etsy on February 15th, 2014. Within 24 hours, I received my first order of month-to-month onesies (elephant design) and since then, I have shipped to all 50 states, as well as Paris, Germany, Italy and other international locations. I have over 150 different designs to choose from and have received fantastic 5 star rating reviews. Here I am, two years later participating in the New York Baby Show.
What are the most popular and/or newest products from Absolute Baby?
The most popular month-to-month onesies are “Ties’ for boys and “Princess” for girls. One of the newest onesies is “Thanking the Doctor and Nurses” that assisted the mom during delivery. I thought it would be a great idea to create a onesie to show appreciation for the awesome job the doctor and nurses do during the delivery process.
What sets Absolute Baby apart from the other baby clothing companies on the market?
I have personal interaction with each of my customers and I always like to add my special touches to the packaging, a hand written thank you card, and priority shipping. I also follow up with my customers once they receive their order. My customers send me pictures of their precious babies each month wearing their month-to-month onesies and often allow me to share their baby’s pictures on Instagram (AbsoluteBaby). It makes me extremely happy to see my onesie design on their baby and I always look forward to the following month. I also receive custom requests from my previous customers to make their baby’s first birthday onesie. I always keep in touch and I continue to look forward to seeing the growth of their babies.
What should parents expect to see from Absolute Baby at the New York Baby Show?
Parents should expect to see individual interaction with me and my assistants to consult about perfect month-to-month onesie ideas. There will be a beautiful display of one-of-a-kind month-to-month onesies and unique custom onesies. I will also offer the opportunity for customers to enter a raffle, where the winning parents will choose any design and personalize the month-to-month onesies with their baby’s name.
