By |December 10, 2007 |1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, DVDs, For Mom, MACT Award Winners, Product Reviews|

After watching “The Happiest Toddler on the Block” DVD, I was feeling a little bit silly about trying the main tip that Dr. Harvey Karp, M.D. recommends for stopping toddler’s tantrums. But, of course I was also very excited to give it a try. Not only did I learn (effective!) methods to reduce the number of tantrums and the length of tantrums, but I also learned great and simple tools on how to […]

Product Review: Dr. Bronner’s Baby Soap

By |November 16, 2007 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Bath & Body Care, Product Reviews|

Besides the fact that one may just be oblivious to the Importance of Safe and Non-Toxic Skin Care for Babies, the next biggest factor in not choosing safe and organic skin care for their baby is COST. Well, that no longer needs to be an excuse! Not now that you know about Dr. Bronner’s Organic Baby Bar and Liquid Soap. The great thing about this soap is you can use it for a body wash and shampoo. Just be very careful not to get it into baby’s eyes. It is not a no-tear solution. However, the completely organic blend of coconut oil, olive oil, hemp oil and jojoba oils make this soap a bubbly delight to the delicate skin of all babies. […]

By |November 9, 2007 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, Clothing & Shoes, Product Reviews|

Pretty much every time my baby girl wears her Baby Legs baby-leg-warmers, someone always comments on how adorable they are. It’s true, they have to be one of the absolute cutest inventions for stylie baby wear. Not only are they adorably stylish, but they are very convenient when it comes time for diaper changes. Which, as we all know, is……. often. […]

Product Review: Earth Mama Angel Baby Shampoo and Body Wash

By |November 9, 2007 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Bath & Body Care, MACT Award Winners, Product Reviews|

I knew I had to get this product review out when I caught my husband using our baby’s shampoo and body wash in the shower the other day. “I like the way it smells,” he said. Not only does Earth Mama Angel Baby Shampoo and Body Soap (5.3 oz – $13.95) have the most engaging smells of vanilla and citrus (from essential oils), and not only does the soap come out of the bottle extra lathery, but… the soap is so pure and natural you will love using it (not only on yourself), on your angel baby everyday!

Formulated by Dr. Natalie W. Geary, one of New York City’s Top Pediatricians, her simply natural and honestly pure baby lotions have become a favorite for me too! It is quite an experience to care for your baby’s skin with these luxurious lotions (and you will not be able to hold back from using it too). Although each lotion from her [tag] baby skin care [/tag] line was designed with a medicinal purpose (eczema and skin allergies), you will find that you can also use them for everyday skin care. […]

Product Review: Baby Ergo Carrier

By |September 11, 2007 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, Gear, MACT Award Winners, Product Reviews|

If I had to pick 3 things that I would not want to go without, the Ergo Baby Carrier would be one of them! Me and my husband love to be in nature and hike, so this definitely fits into our lifestyle perfectly. We have the organic denim carrier, but they come in other colors too. I was first introduced to the Ergo Baby Carrier when my friend came to visit us in Kauai. My baby was 3 months old, and her boy was 1 years old. She wore her boy all over the island, and not only was I totally sold on one for us, it seemed that a mom in every spot we went to was asking her about it as well. […]
