Oh, Baby Organic Skincare

I was recently asked to try Oh, Baby Organic Skincare. I have to say I didn’t know what to expect, as I have never used organic skincare before. Something I liked right away was the soft light scent, and right now that is really important to me! I’m pregnant and get easily offended by the slightest smells.
The kids, of course, loved the Bubbly Bath. But, then again who doesn’t love a bubble bath? The Bathtime Baby body wash and shampoo combo did an excellent job. Neither product bothered the kid’s eyes. It seemed to be as gentle as water. The Bathtime Baby also rinsed out of their hair very quickly. Those of us with children KNOW they aren’t hanging around while we try and rinse their hair out! I also like how soft and tangle free their hair is. I was a little surprised, because it didn’t feel like it was going to be soft and fluffy when I was rinsing it out.
Next in line, we tried the Baby Butter right out of the bath. I LOVE that this very lightweight and absorbs so fast. There is no “greasy lotion” feel and a little goes a very long way.  I also liked that because it absorbed so quickly it was easy to dress the baby. You know, how when you put some of the other lotions on? Then you try and put a long sleeve shirt on and it keeps sticking to their arm because of the lotion? Well, we didn’t have that problem at all!!! The shirt just slipped right on like it should. Makes dressing a baby much faster and that equals a much happier baby and mommy.
I did try the Bottom Balm. It’s not like anything I have used before. I was expecting something a lot thicker. This is thin, almost like a lotion. I can’t give it a full review at this time due to time constrainsts.  I will continue to use it though. I have to say I prefer to put this on than the thicker stuff I was using and the fact that it is organic makes me feel really good!
On Friday, April 1st the i like book will be teaming up with Oh, Baby Organic Skincare for a fun promotion. We are super excited to work with such a cool company. When you order i like books on our website you will receive a sample of Oh, Baby Butter and a fantastic coupon with your purchase! *while supplies last*

I was so excited when I was given the opportunity to review BabyLegs. Included in the package were one pair of socks (boy), two pairs of leg warmers (1 boy and 1 girl), one pair of tights (girl), and then as a gift a pair of newborn legwarmers, because I’m pregnant (smiles). Something that impressed me right away was the hand written note. I really like it when a company takes the time to add that little bit of personal touch. 
            I am such a big fan of BabyLegs. They are so cute and the selection they offer is amazing. So many cute styles for girls AND boys! (Now, for my confession – I already had a few pairs and LOVE them) Also, if you “like” them on facebook one thing you’ll notice right away, they really pay attention to their fan base. The other benefit – you find out about sales and specials that aren’t necessarily advertised elsewhere.
I just wish they had them when my older ones were babies. My 10 year old daughter and 8 year old son like to wear them on their arms like “arm-warmers”. It’s perfect for Wednesday night church. They wear them in and then after they are all warmed up from running around they take them off, so they aren’t too hot. It’s the perfect “win” – they wear a “long sleeve” shirt outside (makes mom happy) and then they are wearing a short sleeve shirt inside (makes kiddos happy).

My 3 year old daughter and 1 year old son wear them as leg warmers. They have been a total life saver this winter, as it has been cold! I have the little ones wear them under their pants for added warmth. My daughter also likes that she gets to keep wearing her skirts and dresses. Babylegs have made my life so much easier with my son’s diaper changes. He doesn’t get chilled when I change him when we’re out because his legs are still covered. I have to say, they also came in pretty handy when he was having tummy troubles as well ;)  For all those moms out there saying, “They will never stay up on my daughter because she is too thin.” Think again. My daughter is very slender and they stay up on her skinny little legs pretty darn good. Every now and then she can get them to slip down, but it’s a quick fix.

Here are some pictures of my kiddos sporting their new BabyLegs.

Reveiws are an expression of my own thoughts and opions. I received BabyLegs sample products to review in my family and did not receive any monetary compensation.

The i like book will be having a BabyLegs give-away on March 25th. Swing by the I like book page and enter the contest on March 25th. It’s super easy ~ lots of fun ~ and FREE!

baby hip hugger
Over the course of the last year or so I have been introduced to some very cool baby & kid products because of different events I attend for the i like book. Often I wonder how I made it through the early stages of motherhood without this or that.  Recently, I met an amazing mom, Neojin, that created one of those “must haves” for a mom but not just because it is cute or trendy but because it is necessary for a mom’s sanity & physical integrity.  If you have a kid who likes to be picked up, put down, picked up, put down, Baby Nari /Baby Hip Hugger is the PERFECT SOLUTION!! It allows your kids to walk, get picked up and put down to walk again seemlessly!
Here is how it works…the Baby Hip Hugger (such a cute name) is designed for either infants or toddlers but the real magic is that it really helps mommy & daddy. As a mom myself I really hurt my back lifting & holding my little ones over & over. The Baby Hip Hugger allows your back relief because you don’t overextend your posture by carrying your kiddos on your hip.
These are one of those “can’t live without it” items that every mom & dad needs.  Plus they come in really trendy colors and the seat that your child sits on is a non-slip surface in the shape of a heart.  They have really thought of everything.  Thank you Baby Nari for introducing such a great product to the market! Visit their website & get yours today *they make great gifts too*
