Dapple Baby {GIVEAWAY}

Tuesday, October 28th, 2014

{guest post by our newest maternity editor, Emily}

My husband and I are recent transplants to the Charlotte, NC area. We moved into a rental home that had not had anyone in it for a few months. Needless to say, it needed to be cleaned from top to bottom!

My goal in life has always been to have a clean home that does not smell like dog, even though we have two of them, so I have always been skeptical of all-natural/chemical free cleaners. However, we recently found out that we are expecting our first baby and that changed my entire view on the items I was using in my home. So, to clean our new rental, I decided to try Dapple’s new line of all-natural cleaners.

Some of the new Dapple Baby products include: LAUNDRY DETERGENT PODS, LAUNDRY BOOSTER PODS, ALL-PURPOSE CLEANER SPRAY, NURSERY CLEANER SPRAY, TOY & HIGHCHAIR CLEANER SPRAY, TUB & TILE CLEANER SPRAY, and DISHWASHER PODS.

I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised at how well they work! The first thing I noticed were the scents. Their products were either unscented or had a light scent that did not bowl you over or give you a headache while cleaning. The bathtub and tile cleaner made the bathroom shine just as well as, if not better than, the bathroom cleaner I was using. The dish soap and dishwasher pods cut through grease really well (and this is from a lifetime Dawn user!). Also, the laundry pods clean our clothes without making them smell all flowery…which is perfect for the baby’s clothes.

The best part of using these products is, as I use them throughout our new home, being able to feel good about preparing my home to be clean and chemical free when our Baby Seamus arrives in a couple of months. Instead of a lot of chemicals that I can’t pronounce and that I can’t decipher what side affects they may cause, I am using cleaners that utilize natural cleaning agents derived from minerals and items such as coconut, palm, and corn.

Any mom can and SHOULD feel good about using these products in her home!

There’s something for every situation your baby, and your home, can throw at you available in the Dapple line of cleaning products.

SIGG {Make Summer Hydration Fun!}

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014

Pool season is officially HERE and our family could not be more excited!!! Now that preschool is officially out for the summer, we are ready… SO READY to spend our days at the pool! Lots of time in the sun though, means staying hydrated and I don’t know about you, but getting my kids to take a water break in between cannon balls and dives isn’t always on the top of their priorities.

Sigg  Make Summer Hydration Fun

Lucky for us.. SIGG makes it so.much.FUN! These new designs for summer are sure to get your kids excited for water breaks and moms like how durable they are! We cart these cups to soccer practice, the pool. in the car – everywhere! I love how much water they can fill (traditional zippy cups normally are much smaller and my five year old chugs that all in one sip!)

My daughter literally wants to be a mermaid, so she is infatuated with this fun design! And my son is all about dino’s and truck’s and cars, so he of course thinks this green dino cup is the coolest of them all! The fact that they’re BPA and phthalate free, durable, AND leak proof (you can’t tell me you haven’t shouted out at those sippy cups that literally seem to spill EVERYWHERE!) I know I have.. and SIGG has done it right! These literally fit the bill all the way around and there’s a SIGG design to meet every occasion!

Stay hydrated all summer long and have fun while you do it! What design would your kiddos enjoy the most? Check out SIGG on Facebook and Twitter and let me know!
