What is Hazard Baby?
Hazard Baby is a warning label clothing line for kids. Just launched this spring from my home in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. We feature 100% soft cotton infant onesies, toddler t-shirts, rompers, and bibs available with 10 different humorous “warning label” designs. All of our clothing is designed by myself and screen printed locally.
How Did Hazard Baby Start?
Hazard Baby was born at a propane filling station with a rented VW Camper Bus on a family tour of the Utah National Parks in 2011. The warning label on the propane tank asked us to alert an official if we notice an odor. We decided that this warning also applied to babies! We quickly realized that a great many warning and caution signs for equipment and material safety also apply to kids! I soon got to work on designing the Hazard Baby logo and “titles”.
Hazard Baby is the perfect solution for anyone who has ever thought that babies should come with warning labels.
Originally from Princeton, NJ, I attended The University of Vermont where I graduated with a degree in Integrated Natural Resources. After four years of working with the US Forest Service, my husband and I started a Country Store/Cider Mill business while my husband, quite accidently, began growing a masonry business. After our first daughter was born, we reevaluated our priorities and sold the store to focus on our new family and the masonry business. Fast forward several years, with my two girls in school, I was beginning to look at my work options when the idea for Hazard Baby came along…
Hazard Baby’s Future:
What’s in store for Hazard Baby’s future? I have already designed 6 more titles that will soon be added to the current ten. More sizes and colors! Not only can we add more sizes to our onesie, toddler, and romper lines, but most of our titles can apply to youths as well. Perhaps even adult sizes are in our future. Cozy sweatshirts, long sleeved onesies & t-shirts, dresses, hats, blankets, and bags. Plus more titles. I am constantly on the lookout for more tasteful “warnings”. The possibilities are endless!
When it comes down to it, I hope my customers have as much fun with their Hazard Baby clothing as I do in designing them.

Book of The Month: In Faith And In Doubt
From the sociological and psychological dynamics to real life experiences, Author Dale McGowan identifies specific qualities that separate stable secular/religious marriages from disasters.
We enjoyed the part in In Faith and In Doubt that the agnostic or atheist parent’s beliefs should not be ignored simply because they do not practice a holiday or in the belief system. In retrospect, an atheist or agnostic person should respect a religious person’s right to practice faith. Chapter Five is about the turning points and we believe this will help a lot of families.
Dale McGowan’s book is about balance. He was a Harvard Humanist of the Year and teaches extensively on the subject. If you are planning to marry or have children with someone who believes something different then yourself, then pick up this book. If you are an experienced multi-faith family, then let this book be the fresh air your family and your marriage may need. Buy the book here!
