Ecoland baby girl’s organic cotton flower quarter socks

Sponsored by Tomoson.com

Ecoland baby girl’s organic cotton flower quarter socks are soft, snuggly and darling. I love the muted colors and the softness of these socks. Simple and sweet and organic, so no harmful chemicals or dyes in these. They do stay put once you have them on which is REALLY great if you have a small child (like my youngest) who thinks that riding in car means removing shoes and socks and anything else she can yank off from her seat.

I love that these socks come in 3 identical pairs, so there’s no need to sort through- just grab 2 and go.  This is great for those times when you lose one sock and can’t find its partner!! [click to continue…]

Ah Goo Baby Plush Pad Review and Giveaway Ends 6/7/11

Have you heard about the Plush Pad from Ah Goo Baby?  They have been featured on the Today Show and in several magazines.  The brand has won several awards for their innovative product.  This is a changing pad with a twist.  It has a 5/8″ thick memory foam center and beautiful fabric covering on the outside.  The memory foam piece where the baby lays is covered by an ultra soft minkee fabric which is super cozy against baby’s skin.  Because the pad rolls up, it can be used for travel, on the go or at home.  I use mine almost exclusively at home.  It now has a permanent home in my diaper changing area.  When I’m not in the nursery,  I usually change diapers on the floor or on the couch with a blanket underneath.  However, I usually find that a blanket can be too bulky and the size is just too large.  I now use the Plush Pad for quick and easy changes on the floor and I love it!   The memory foam is soft and comfortable, my baby loves it and it’s just the right size at about 2 feet square.  Plus, it just looks cute!  I can see how this pad would also work nicely for tummy time or baby classes.

Tomo & Edie Review and Discount

Is there anything sweeter than a new baby in nothing but a diaper and a t-shirt? That’s how I like to dress my little ones in the beginning. Not only is it comfortable for the baby, but it makes for easy diaper changes. That’s why I just love the idea of the organic cotton baby kimono by Tomo & Edie. All of their kimonos are made with 100% organic unbleached cotton. This is a product that you can feel good about putting next to your baby’s skin. They even take the care to sew all the seams of the garment on the outside, so as not to irritate delicate skin. The garment is make to be loose fitting, so that it is easy to put on, but also does not irritate the umbilical cord. The kimono’s are available in a short, long and combination style. In addition to the unbleached cotton designs, they also offer the kimono in Kusakizome (a Japanese tie dye type technique). The dyes are made from natural ingredients such as tea leaves and flowers. The colors are gorgeous too, ranging from a clay color to a deep rich purple.

Kissaluvs Kissa – Newborn AIO diapers (Giveaway- THREE Winners!)

 Kissaluvs has a new member of its diaper family- the Kissa Newborn AIO diaper.  This diaper makes me want another baby.  Badly.  Sadly, Mr. Bargains doesn’t seem to think that’s a valid reason to have another baby….who knew?  But oh, the teeny tiny diaper with its teeny tiny leg openings and teeny tiny waist- ah, adorable.  Sweet. Snuggly. Lucky for my reviewer Jenni, who’s the recipient of this diaper.  (In all seriousness, we’re not going to have another baby, no matter how loudly my ovaries scream at the mere idea of just one more baby…we can’t do it for multiple reasons).

The Kissa newborn AIO is a super easy one-step system with a custom milled moisture wicking fleece inner and custom PUL outer, this diaper ensures leaks stay in and moms can focus on spending time with their precious moons instead of worrying about blowouts and rashes! The umbilical snap down feature provides cord protection during initial weeks and the cleverly placed snaps allow it to fit from 5-15lbs.

Bravado Designs

Bravado Designs has a great website. Not only do they sell nursing bras, nursing tanks, undies and washable breast pads, but they have tons of breastfeeding information and support. They even have a link to a FREE app that is a breastfeeding friendly locator. Where was this thing five years ago, when I would frequently find myself nursing in the restroom of some restaurant? I found that their site is very interactive. They have a newsletter and a fabulous section on breastfeeding info. There is a tab at the top of the home page. The information is extensive and covers all areas. [click to continue…]

Aden + Anais Swaddle Blanket Review

What can I say about Aden and Anais Swaddlers, other than GORGEOUS. I fell in love with the design of these swaddle blankets when I saw them online, but when I actually received them in the mail, OH MY! My pregnant little heart went pitter patter. These swaddlers took my breath away, starting with the beautiful packaging. Just look at them! The fabrics are delicious and the patterns are modern and adorable. The swaddlers are sized extra large (47″x47″), much larger than the ones found at chain stores. As you can see, I was even able to swaddle my 2 year old (who thought this was great fun!). aden and anais swaddler blankets

I personally feel that there is no better secret to pass on to a new mother than the art of swaddling. My husband became a “baby burrito expert” with our first child. He just loves wrapping those little ones up nice and tight. Not only do babies LOVE begin swaddled, but I find that they are less fussy, sleep better and feel more secure. My baby’s are swaddled for at least a couple of months during the day, and much longer for night time. I always find that my babies outgrow the classic swaddler almost immediately. The standard swaddling blanket is really only intended to fit the newest of newborns. I have even been known to sew 2 blankets together to make a larger swaddler, but the dimensions are never quite right.

Kissaluvs Antibacterial Wetbag (Giveaway- THREE winners!!)

Kissaluvs has some fun new products coming out and I”m one of the first to try them.  The first thing we’ll be sharing with you is the new antibacterial wetbags.   Regardless of if you use cloth diapers or not, wetbags are something I can’t imagine living without.  Anything damp, wet or just moist can go into a wetbag- not just diapers.  They just happen to be marvelous FOR diapers.  (I myself have used wetbags for bathing suits, soiled clothing, toiletries, and a makeup bag in addition to diapers!!)

The Kissaluvs wetbags come in 3 prints- bold, bright and fun.  They sent me Spring Circles and I love the look!! These are definitely smaller than most wetbags I’ve had- or have- but I’m ok wtih that- my littlest one is 21 months old and we’re not needing as many diapers on outings, and she’s begun to use the potty anyway so its likely we’ll be bringing trainers and/or underwear for her sooner than later, which take up  less space than diapers.  These are a compact 10×13 size bag with a zipper closure (which is key, in my experience, with any wetbag!!).

Exederm Review

If you’ve ever had a child that suffers from eczema, dermatitis or sensitive skin then you know the importance of good bath and body products.  I have found that this is no easy feat.  We have been through countless bottles of “sensitive” and “gentle”  baby cleansers, but most of them are still too drying and can aggravate rough dry patches of skin.
