Friday, August 22nd, 2014

If you’re little one is in a crib or you’re expecting, you may be looking for the perfect crib bumper or cover for you. With the recommendations to not use a crib bumper due to the safety of baby, you might be looking for a good alternative. Many parents get concerned once your little one can climb up and put their mouths on the crib rail. What if I told you Babee Talk has a new product that is both stylish AND practical?

Babee Talk’s new Eco-Teeth Crib Rail is made with 100% natural, Non-GMO, and contains NO chemicals! Babee Talk is committed to producing quality ingredients, working closely with farmers  who’s crops contain NO GMO’s, pesticides, herbicides, or insecstides to maintain honest and healthy ingredients for your little one.

Travel Essentials  BabyElan Daily

It’s easy to overpack with little ones, right? Here are a few travel essentials every mom should have on their list to throw in your bag when on-the-go!

Sunscreen is a huge discussion topic in our house lately. While trying to avoid unnecessary and cancer causing chemicals, I also want to be sure my kids skin is protected. Find out what will be in my beach bag and where you can snag yours!

1. UrbanHalo headbands. These headbands are fashionable, practical, and non-slip! I seriously love mine and have already been wearing it daily at the pool, so without a doubt, this will be a staple during my week long vacation! I love how you can either slip it on with wet hair, dry hair, or while it’s up. It’s the perfect accessory for us moms – you never know when you’ll need to pull your hair back and get dirty with the kiddos!

2. Daddy & Co. Disposable Diaper Changing Pad. These are cute little changing pads for daddy to use while changing baby! I’m a huge fan of Daddy & Co. and they really do think of everything.

3. Daddy & Co. Natural Sunscreen & Bug Spray. I am pretty picky on these types of products when it comes to ingredients and I am so proud to say Daddy & Co. has really done it right! I really do feel good about putting these products on my kids skin. I like to avoid chemicals and potentially harmful ingredients such as oxybenzone and I was thrilled to see when Daddy & Co. says these products are chemical free – they really are! Only the best for my babies!

4. Pack’Ems, Reusable Snack Bags. Booginhead’s Snack’Ems are my favorite reusable food pouches, so I was psyched to see they came out with Pack’Ems! These are going to be a staple during our week away, because I can easily pack snacks into these cute little reusable bags to trek back and forth and then continue to reuse them. Easy on the environment AND a money saver!! I’ve already washed them several times and they’re still going strong! Perfect to keep on hand for lunchbox treats, too!

 

Which product is a “must-have” for you when traveling?

OXO Tot #FirstBites {GIVEAWAY}

Friday, July 18th, 2014

What is that one “baby” product that you are still using, long after said baby is now a toddler or preschooler? For me…that product would be a baby food making machine! For two out of the four children, I made baby food 100% of the time for the first year, until table food was introduced. But, I would always make too much and have to freeze a large portion of it. Let me tell you a little secret for those of you trying to eat healthy and manage life at the same time (especially if there’s a baby in the picture as well) – use the frozen, pureed baby food in the freezer for yourself as well!

A frozen cube of pureed sweet potato mixed with apricot in your morning smoothie is divine! Pureed spinach, green beans with a hint of apples and cinnamon blended into your afternoon power shake…perfection! Not only is baby eating all the right things, you are too and nothing goes to waste!

Gracie is 3 and still enjoys pureed food from time to time. A quick snack, as a side dish with dinner, and definitively when breakfast is on the run. We are now enjoying the baby food making process all over again with our 6 month old niece SJ. I will never tire of making wholesome meals from scratch, no matter the age of the child!

And this time around, we have OXO Tot products to use, enjoy, and praise! The Baby & Toddler collection over at OXO is truly amazing! Everything you need to feed your young one with ease of use, all BPA, phthalate and PVC free.

One of our favorite baby food making recipes that I still make and freeze for my morning smoothies is a mixture of an abundant garden veggie in our back yard and popular fruit that is affordable all year long! Zucchini & apples. With a dash of cinnamon.

- Wash and peel the zucchini

- Wash and peel the apples
- Cut into cubes

Now for the SUPER FUN part! Check out this GIVEAWAY:

Go Gently Baby

Friday, June 20th, 2014

A new child clothing brand that I recently discovered, Go Gently Baby, has a mission that not only makes a difference to our planet, but also to our children’s health. Go Gently Baby uses only organic cotton, eco-friendly dyes, and water-based inks. On top of using earth-friendly materials, they are all produced in the USA. Go Gently also uses as many sustainable business practices as possible, including using left-over fabric remnants each season, recycled paper hang tags and bio degradable garments bags. 

Go Gently Baby has clothing for children sizes 3/6 months to 8 years. They have adorable tees, dresses, pants, jackets and more for boys and girls. Our favorite is their Hero Tee.

I think this is such a powerful message for a little person! This has become our favorite tee and little man can’t wear it enough. It is very soft, stretchy, and comfy. It runs true to size and is on the larger size rather than smaller. The Hero tee is available for $34 in Grape, Pumice, Seafoam, and Soft White in sizes 3/6 months to 8 years.

Little man was also sent the Wrong Side Roo shorts which are unbelievably adorable! They are long shorts with 4 oversized pockets in the front and back. These are shorts every little boy needs! Little man has enjoyed filling his with shells, rocks, cars, and I’ve even found snacks.

The pants are made with 100% organic cotton French Terry, which is reversed on the upper panels- and why they call it them the Wrong Side Roo.  They are also true to size, but run on the larger side. You can purchase them for $46 and they are available in sizes 3/6 months- 8 years in Slate, Pumice, Grape, and Royal.

Be sure to follow Go Gently Baby on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram.
