Spotlight on some items folks ask us about.. Weleda Natural Gift Set for Baby

Spotlight on a few products folks ask us about.. Part IV.

A lot of people ask what Calendula does, how it smells, and why Weleda uses it in their natural baby products, so I listened in on the Weleda Baby Calendula Friday conference call that Weleda graciously provides for its Retailers.

Weleda Natural Gift Set for Baby :

http://www.whole-earthgifts.com/whole_earth_gifts/Weleda_Baby_Gift_Set.html

Calendula provides a thin soft layer that stays on your skin after you put it on to moisturize and protect the babies skin.  Its scent is soft kind of like chamomile.  I use the Weleda Calendula baby lotion on my feet at night since it provides a cool, moisturizing layer.  It has done wonders for my feet.  I have been using the natural lotion on my daughter’s skin since birth and it feels as soft as the day she was born.  I also use the natural cream on any dry itchy spots and it has helped so much.

Here is Weleda’s take:

Organic calendula flower extract soothes and softens your baby’s skin, wrapping your child in a layer of warmth and protection like a loving hug. Our Calendula Baby Cream also has essential fatty acids from sweet almond oil that protect your baby’s skin from drying out and render delicate or chafing skin supple and smooth. Gentle organic chamomile flower extract in our all natural baby cream soothes your baby’s skin with its calming anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. Developed with the assistance of midwives and physicians, your precious baby is naturally nourished and protected with our Calendula Baby Cream, turning chappy skin into happy skin.

Spotlight on some items folks ask us about.. Sophie BPA-free Bath Toy

We had a customer write us asking whether the Sophie Bath Toy by Vulli Callison was BPA-free

http://www.whole-earthgifts.com/Sweet_Baby/Sophie_the_Giraffe_Bath_Toy.html

The answer is YES, the Sophie Bath toy is BPA-free.  I had verified this with their representative before ordering these for our store– as all of our products / gifts are natural, organic, or otherwise non-toxic.

The Vulli representative had ensured me that the product is indeed BPA-free, but since the customer was concerned, I wrote the company again, and received reports back from Consumer Product Safety Testing on 8 samples of the product that states that it tested as BPA free.  No worries moms!  They are absolutely fine for your babies’ natural bath or for a great natural baby gift basket!

Spotlight on some items folks ask us about.. Melobaby All-in-One Diaper Wallet and Changing Pad

Spotlight on the:  Melobaby All-in-One Diaper Wallet and Changing Pad

http://www.whole-earthgifts.com/Momma_Earth/Melobaby_Diaper_Wallet.html

The question we get most often is:  Is this a diaper bag or just a one-diaper carrier and pad?

The answer is that it can definitely be substituted for a diaper bag just on a lower scale.  It is just much more compact, but can fit 4-5 diapers.  It also comes with a hold for wipes.  What is special about the Melobaby is that it is extremely well made, durable, and easy to carry.  It has a magnetized closure, and then flips over with this extra soft luxury feel fleece changing pad so that you are not just laying your baby on a thin plastic mat.

Here is a recent review from one of our customers:
Melobaby diaper changing wallet and changing pad is not your normal diaper changing accessory.  It is much more convenient,–dad’s especially love them so that they are not carrying around a bulky bag around.   We keep a Melobaby in both cars and it makes it easy to grab and leave one for grandma, or the school.  It has a spacious pouch for wipes and pacifiers.  One great pro is that the changing pad and Melobaby diaper wallet are washable.  So every few months I throw it in the wash. It is an extremely durable product (made in Australia).  The changing pad is made of a thick super soft fleece and the design of the Melobaby wallet is ultra hip and modern!  Get one.  You will love it.

A Spotlight on some items folks tend to ask us about.. Sophie the Giraffe Toy Chain

We’ve had so many people ask us what the Sophie the Giraffe toy chain is.

http://www.whole-earthgifts.com/baby_gifts/Sophie_Giraffe_Toy_Chain.html

You know the little plastic toys that are are attached to car seat carriers in order to entertain baby, well the Sophie Giraffe So Pure Chain is a car seat toy and more.  We think it is the best organic baby gift you could give.  You can wrap it around ANYTHING the baby is near.  Simply attach the velcro around the nearest table or station that you have your baby set up at.   You can also attach the babies Sophie teether and pacifier.  (It has 3 entertaining toys on it itself).  It is 100% organic cotton so if the baby puts it in its mouth– no worries!  It makes a super memorable organic baby gift.  By the way, the chain is plush and is obviously really a chain.  It is safe and nothing that could actually tighten around your baby.

Here is a recent review on the Sophie chain from  one of our customers:

Chloe from Austin, Texas

We wrap the Sophie Organic Baby Toy Chain around our son’s carrier, and let it hang down for entertainment in the car.  It wraps so easily around anything and we can easily move it from place to place or play station to play station.  The Sophie the Giraffe toy has two Velcro attachments.  It has  a leaf, a  Sophie the Giraffe rattle, a ball that rings and and a tie for hanging up another fun toy for your babies entertainment.  I forgot to mention that it is made of 100 PERCENT pure organic cotton. You always have to pay for ORGANIC, BUT IT IS WORTH IT!  If you are interested in purchasing an organic baby gift you should def go for the Sophie the Giraffe organic cotton toy chain is my baby’s favorite source of entertainment.

I definitely recommend the Sophie the Giraffe toy  for any baby!

WHOLE EARTH’S TOP TEN PIECES OF ADVICE FOR A HEALTHY PREGNANCY:

THIS POST IS MOSTLY FOR FIRST TIME MOMMA’S WHO COULD USE SOME TIPS AND MIGHT HAVE MORE QUESTIONS ABOUT PREGNANCY..

1. OF COURSE, TAKE PRESCRIPTION STRENGTH PRENATAL VITAMINS WITH EXTRA DHA AND FOLIC ACID TO NOURISH THE HEALTHIEST BABY (ASK YOUR OBGYN OR MIDWIFE FOR THE BEST)

2. WALK, DO PILATES, OR YOGA DAILY SO THAT YOU STAY HEALTHY FIT AND KEEP YOUR BLOOD FLOWING..  MOVE AND BREATHE..  MY OBGYN SAID YOU CAN DO ANYTHING THAT DOES NOT TAKE ON A LARGER RISK OF FALLING. (NO SKIING, JUMPING, ETC. BUT ANYTHING ELSE IS FINE OF COURSE CONSULT YOUR OBGYN ON THIS MATTER THOUGH.)

3.  PRACTICE SLEEPING ON YOUR LEFT SIDE USING A PREGNANCY WEDGE BETWEEN YOUR LEGS SO THAT YOU WILL BE USED TO IT ONCE YOUR BELLY GROWS!  DON’T PUT PRESSURE ON YOUR VENA CAVA OR YOU WILL HAVE EVEN MORE PROBLEMS!

4. USE PREGNANCY OIL ON BELLY AND BOSOM EVERY DAY FOR NO STRETCH MARKS.  THIS IS THE GOOD STUFF AND IT WORKS!  I KNOW– I DIDN’T GET A SINGLE ONE!

5. EAT SMALL HEALTHY MEALS THROUGHOUT THE DAY (AT LEAST FIVE) AND TRY COMBINE A CARB AND PROTEIN WHICH WILL KEEP YOU FEELING FULL. FOR EXAMPLE, CARROT STICKS & BROCCOLI WITH HUMMUS, YOGURT WITH FRUIT AND GRANOLA, TURKEY OR CHEESE ON WHOLE WHEAT..

THIS WILL KEEP YOU FULL, HEALTHY AND FEELING GREAT, AND KEEP YOUR BLOOD SUGAR UP!

6.  YOUR HAIR WILL GET DRY, AND YOU MIGHT LOSE SOME.. USE A HAIR OIL TREATMENT TREATMENT TO PROVIDE YOUR HAIR WITH NUTRIENTS AND SHINE.  APPLY ONCE HAIR IS DRY.

7. YOUR LIPS MIGHT GET DRY AND PEELY, SCRUB WITH A MIX OF NATURAL SEA SALT AND OLIVE OIL, AND THEN APPLY ORGANIC LIP BALM!

8.  AVOID AIR POLLUTION,  FUMES FROM NEW CARPET, OR ANY OTHER KIND OF CARCINOGENS.  WHAT YOU BREATHE IN SO DOES YOUR BABY!  STAY IN FRESH AIR ENVIRONMENTS.

9.  CONNECT WITH YOUR BABY BY SINGING SONGS TO YOUR BABY WHILE YOUR BABY IS IN THE WOMB.  FEEL CONNECTED TO YOUR BABY BY FEEDING YOUR BABY NOURISHING FOODS AND THINK ABOUT ALL OF THE GOOD NUTRIENTS YOU ARE GIVING HIM/ OR HER. TALK TO YOUR BABY AND ENCOURAGE DADDY TO  TALK TOO.  START NURTURING AND BONDING WITH YOUR BABY WHILE YOUR BABY IS IN THE WOMB!  THE HAPPINESS HORMONES WILL KICK IN EVEN MORE!

10.  TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF! GET PLENTY OF SLEEP.. ASK YOUR HUBBY/ MATE FOR HELP WHEN NEEDED. BE GENTLE WITH YOURSELF. TAKE SOME TIME TO RELAX AND BE IN THE PRESENT.  ENJOY THIS SPECIAL TIME!
