On Organic Way To Wear Your Infant Or Baby Comfortably

By |February 17, 2011 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, Gear, MACT Award Winners, Product Reviews|

The Organic Sleepy Wrap™ is a proven way to calm and relax your new baby when they show signs of distress. Additionally, the Organic Sleepy Wrap made carrying their babies and nursing easier and allowed for longer bonding. This non toxic wrap was loved by each and every mom tester for a multitude of reasons which lead to their prestigious MACT Excellence Award!  This is a respectable Award that is not easily deserved. The Organic Sleepy Wrap™ improves on the conventional baby wrap because it is non-toxic and very comfortable. This wrap was loved by moms because it comforted fussy babies, made chores possible while wearing the baby because both hands were always free, and because there are no snaps, velcro or clips the wrap is comfortable for both mom and baby. Mom’s with twins also loved the convenience of wearing 2 babies as infants at the same time, and when bigger could wear one and hold the other. One mama commented, “I had used 2 other carriers before and I hated them both! Both of them pulled on my neck and shoulders and were so cumbersome that I couldn’t really do anything while wearing the baby. However, the Sleepy Wrap is different!” And yet another mama, “I will be traveling by airplane this summer and I know my Sleepy Wrap is going to save me as I fly all night with my baby boy. Wearing the Wrap is so comfortable that I can easily picture myself wearing him all night long with ease. My other carriers are nowhere near comfortable enough to wear all night long.” […]

Safe and Non-toxic Organic Nap Mat by Sewn Natural: PVC-Free and Fire Retardant-Free

By |May 13, 2010 |1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Gear, Product Reviews|

Nap mats are designed to keep our precious children cozy during quiet nap times in day care, preschool and kindergarten.  They are not suppose to be a toxic breathing space that may affect the long term health of their brain, nervous system, respiratory systems and (oh yeah) endocrine systems. When I started looking for a safe nap mat for my little one for preschool I thought I must be caught up in a horrible nightmare.   Almost all sleep mats are  made of PVC/vinyl and fire retardant chemical soaked foams!  Oh my goodness, I wouldn’t want my child playing with a vinyl toy let alone sleeping for hours on a PVC mat! But now I can rest assured that my little angel will be taking naps at school that DO benefit her brain!   We are super happy to tell you about a chemical-free, organic cotton and hemp sleep mat that we found on Etsy and is made by hand in Ottawa, Canada.  Now we can sleep tight at night knowing that this safe alternative sleep mat is available for our little dreamers.

Modern, Eco-Friendly Wooden High Chair: Formaldehyde-Free and VOC free paints

By |March 10, 2009 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Gear, Product Reviews|

It was love at first site! As soon as I saw the Stokke® Tripp Trapp, eco-friendly wooden high chair, I had to know more about it. What a beautifully constructed piece of functional furniture, with a modern artistry!  (I know, drooling over a highchair may seem infantile, but if you have seen one of these in person, you know exactly what I am talking about.) Not only does it look ravishingly beautiful, but this is the kind of furniture that grows with your baby!  As soon as your baby can sit at the table with you all for his first taste of mashed veggie he will use his Stokke® highchair.  But even as he sits at his desk studying for his college exams, he will still get full use out of his Tripp Trapp Stokke eco-chair!  We love that!

A Simple Baby Wrap With Many Benefits

By |November 14, 2008 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, Gear, MACT Award Winners, Product Reviews|

It’s Babywearing week (Nov 12-18) and we thought it would be perfect timing to highlight the Moby™ Baby Wrap, especially since there are so many benefits to wearing your baby. At first I was a little overwhelmed when I took my wrap out of the cotton bag: 5.5 meters of soft stretch cotton cloth. What now? Because I am a visual learner, I decided to watch the instruction video from Moby™ Wrap. Simple! Moby™ Wrap’s Classic Hug Hold The video demonstrates the ‘classic hug hold’! It is incredible easy to follow and a few minutes later – voilà – I had my Moby Wrap perfectly wrapped around my upper body. I tried it with my friend’s 5 month old baby, and I have to say it is incredibly comfortable and secure. I was worried at first that the baby could fall out easily, but if you follow the instructions, your baby is absolutely safe. […]

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. […]
