When the babes were tiny (aka newborns), huge earrings were not an issue. In fact, Lane cites large, gorgeous earrings as one of her babywearing basics while trying to retain her style as a new mom. And she's right - a gorgeous pair of earrings can do wonders for a simple outfit that is so often limited by the functionality required of baby-wearing.

However. Those newborns grow, and those chubby fingers get fast. Crazy fast. And while a simple diamond *cough* cubic zirconia *cough* stud always works, it does get old. But lately I keep coming across some downright rockin', small-ish, yet totally cool, totally glitzy earrings that would be perfect for baby-wearing the older babe, as well as avoiding little grabby hands in general.
Time to share. Voila...

I'd happily wear any of these earrings, but have fallen pretty hard for both pairs of spikes (House of Harlow in silver and Stell & Dot in gold). (hint, hint Mike. And please ignore B who told you it was lame to give me gifts that I've already written about. It is NOT lame. Repeat, NOT LAME.)
Readers, have you come across any gorgeous pairs that add sparkle, yet still avoid the shockingly fast chubby-handed?
