I don’t know who loves this eco-friendly toddler picnic table more, me or my 3 year old.  She is so thrilled to have her very own picnic table, one that is made perfectly for her size and I am in love that it is 100% green and beautifully made! Since we’ve received our non-toxic picnic tables, we have spent much more time outside enjoying nature.  It is so wonderful!  We have every lunch time meal on our front lanai eating together.  My daughter sits on her picnic table seat, and I pull up a stool on the side.  Rain or shine, we have been loving eating outdoors now! When friends come over for playdates, her eco-friendly picnic table makes for an intimate and playful place that they can have snacks or do art projects together too. This toddler picnic table is made from unfinished and untreated cedar wood.  And to top it off, the wood is sustainably harvested using green manufacturing processes! […]

By |July 8, 2009 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Product Reviews, Sun & Outdoors|

Stainless Steel Ice Cube Trays Makes Safe Frozen Baby Food: A Safe Alternative To Plastic

By |June 25, 2009 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Food Gear, Product Reviews|

Making baby food for your baby is a wonderful gift.  For a baby to receive the nourishment of whole foods, cooked from your garden or local farmer’s market to the table is the best! But sometimes it really is a little too time consuming to make each meal fresh.  Freezing your own cooked baby food is the next best thing to a freshly cooked home-cookin’ meal. And since SAFbaby loves to stray from the norm of plastic everythings, we were really excited to hear about these stainless steel ice cube trays from the Tickle Trunk!  Not only can you make ice cubes from plastic free trays, but what an invention for safely freezing your own homemade baby food and food purees!

This SPF Sun Hat for Kids and Adults Tops The Rest!

By |June 15, 2009 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Clothing & Shoes, Product Reviews, Sun & Outdoors|

This Play Hat from Sunday Afternoons is just about the coolest invention in an SPF hat for children that we’ve seen! When it comes to sun protection clothing, it is nice to know what to look for.  This Sun Hat carries a 50+ UPF!  If a garment has a UPF factor (Ultra Violet Protection Factor) of 50 attached to it, this means that just 1/50th of the sun’s radiation will reach the skin. Our children have such delicate skin.  My daughter’s skin is especially sensitive on her scalp, face and around her eyes.  So keeping her head covered while she is playing in the great outdoors is smart and safe. There are many reasons why this hat is topping the rest….. […]

PVC-Free Wet/Dry Bags: Great for Cloth Diapers, Swim Wear and More

By |June 2, 2009 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Diapering, Product Reviews|

Oh the uses a mommy will find for these PVC-free and lead-free wet and wet/dry bags by Planet Wise. Not only are they completely waterproof, even at the seams, but they are wonderfully crafted in the USA! PVC or vinyl often lines bags that are meant to be waterproof (such as diaper bags.) But, not only is PVC incredibly toxic, it also can NOT be recycled, making it an environmental toxin too. Not cool. Thanks goodness these stylish wet bags from Planet Wise are totally cool, economical, and made by a eco-conscious husband and wife team in the USA. Also, did you know that many zippers have been pained using paint that contains lead? Yikes! Well, not here. All zippers in Planet Wise’s eco-line of bags are lead free too! […]

Eco-friendly Leather Shoes With Natural Rubber Soles and High Standards

By |May 13, 2009 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Clothing & Shoes, Product Reviews|

This is premium footwear for babies and kids!  As soon as you get a pair of these conscious shoes in your hand you will melt too.  So soft to the touch, yet sturdy and crafted to perfection. Bobux’s® (a New Zealand based company) eco-friendly, soft soled leather shoes are amazing!  I wish I could fit my foot into a pair of these kickers myself. Not only are each of their i-Walk shoes fastened with convenient Velcro, or a zipper for the stylish eco-friendly cowgirl and cowboy boots, but the sole is soft, flexible, and made of non-slip natural rubber. Additionally, Bobux Eco-leather™ was purposely developed to produce an exceptionally soft surface that would be gentle on baby’s delicate newborn skin AND friendly on the environment.  No wonder my little girl, who typically only wants to go barefoot, actually keeps these shoes on her feet! Bobux® meets high standards when it comes to being an eco-friendly shoe….. […]

Earth Friendly Stainless Steel Food Containers Are Smarter and More Stylish Than Plastic

By |May 7, 2009 |1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Food Gear, Product Reviews|

Happy Tiffin Stainless Steel food containers are a great alternative to plastic Ziploc and Tupperware. They are fun to use, simple to clean, good for the environment and their 3 tiered product is also economical! I have really been loving my 3-tiered Tiffin.  Using it to pack snacks on our outings to the beach and park, and storing our leftovers in the fridge. I felt especially kind to Mother Earth the day I brought my stainless stackers with me to get take-out.  No plastic bags, no Styrofoam boxes, NO WASTE WHATSOEVER!  And the staff at the Cafe thought it was really cool too! The tiered feature makes it really nice to keep everything organized and put together.  Feels much more Zen than having tons of plastic tupperwares everywhere.  You know the ones…….the ones that never have a matching top.  Well, not with these Tiffins!  It’s all put together, very practical!

Non-toxic Sand Toys by Green Toys are Eco-Friendly and Fun

By |April 14, 2009 |1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Product Reviews, Sun & Outdoors, Toys & Activities|

Our very popular and informative post titled “How Dangerous Is PVC in Toys? We’ve Got The Answers From THE Expert” clearly lays out the dangers of PVC in our children’s toys. One of the types of toys out there that is not easy to find as PVC-free has been sand toys.  And since Spring has sprung and Summer time is right around the corner, beach days and countless hours of fun are waiting to be had playing in the sand! I was immediately impressed by the quality of Green Toys™ Sand Play Set made from 100% recycled milk jugs.  They are sturdy, with a plastic much thicker than my girl’s other sand toys.  These toys are truly made to last! Green Toys Sand Play set comes with a bucket, a sand castle mold, a shovel and a rake.  All of which are PBA-Free, phthalates free, and free of lead paints too! […]

SPF Swim Wear and Sports Wear for Babies, Toddlers and Kids

By |April 5, 2009 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Clothing & Shoes, Product Reviews, Sun & Outdoors|

Simply put, I have not seen a single piece from the Snapper Rock UV50 Collection that I do not absolutely love!  We are not left surprised that Snapper Rock Swim Wear is sold only in the finest boutiques and stores around the world.  (But no worries, we have their link below!) We live on an island and 96% of all of the little girls/toddlers I see on the beach  are wearing itsy bitsy, tiny weenie, cute-as-can-be bikinis. There is no denying that they are cute, but I am always left thinking to myself how happy I am that I have the ability to greatly reduce my baby’s overall harmful sun exposure right now, while she is so young. “Why not let her keep her precious and flawless skin as long as I can?” I think. Well, thanks to Snapper Rock, my little one is looking incredibly stylish, outrageously adorable and can endlessly play in the outdoors without harming her new and beautiful skin. Furthermore, she LOVES to wear her Snapper Rock wear when we are at the beach, the park, or playing in the yard.  I was astonished at how fast my little girl’s swim shorts dried after playing in the river and ocean.  The material is amazing.  Oh yeah, my daughter just loves that her swim shorts HAVE POCKETS!  She thinks that is the coolest. We SAFbaby mama’s think the safe UV50 factor is pretty cool! […]

A Natural and Effective DEET-Free Bug Spray

By |April 2, 2009 |1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Product Reviews, Sun & Outdoors|

If a long winter has kept you indoors, or if a warm-weathered Spring Break is in your future, then you and your family are eager to get into the wild outdoors!  Living here in Hawaii, we are outdoors daily, and so are those darn mosquitoes. And boy do those pesky biters like new blood!  When we moved here, my daughter was especially tasty to seemingly every mosquito within miles of her 2 year old blood. The dangers of deet, especially for our babies and children, are highly toxic.  So, I had to find a safer, more natural alternative. Let me tell you, my whole family was happy when I found Second Skin Naturals™.  My little one was actually in the habit of asking for it whenever she started getting bit too.  (Which was often while we were loading up in the car.)  And daddy’s work out in the banana patches and with other yard work has been more enjoyable too. What you need to know about deet, especially if you are a parent is this…. […]
