Healthy oral care products for little ones

Healthy oral care products for little ones

When my children first got some teeth and we had to start an oral hygiene regime, I immediately gravitated toward the traditional, plastic, character-themed toothbrushes at Target.  I figured that they’d be fun for my little ones to use and that they would do the job well enough.  It just never occurred to me that there were safer and better alternatives out there. Then one day, I was doing some online shopping and just happened to stumble across some oral care products by Jack n’ Jill, and it hit me!  I thought that I was being...

6 clean bath & body care brands for babies and kids

6 clean bath & body care brands for babies and kids

(Please note: This is not a sponsored post, but it does contain some affiliate links.)   By now, you’ve probably heard or read about the potential link between Johnson & Johnson’s  talcum powder (which they no longer use) and ovarian cancer. What I find most upsetting about this story is that it’s about a product meant for babies.  If there is any category of products on the market that should be considered safe, it should be those for babies and kids.  Right? If you go into a store like Buy Buy Baby or even just...

Some news!

Some news!

Well, I initially planned to do a post today about one of my very favorite natural brands (Hint: It has to do with plant-based therapy), but I went into labor 4 weeks early and kind of had my hands full! Meet Megan Michele Turner, the newest addition to my sweet family of five. We’re both doing great, and I hope to be back with a normal post on...

Vitacost haul (food, skincare, & condiments)

Vitacost haul (food, skincare, & condiments)

Hello! I placed one of my weekly orders to Vitacost a few days ago, and since my box arrived today, I figured that I’d share what was inside. (Side note: I just subscribed to a farm delivery box for things like eggs, milk, and cheese since we go through those things quickly in this house with the kids.  I’m so excited about it and cannot wait to show you what we get!) Eden Organic Black Beans I’ve been loving beans lately in salads as a good source of protein, so I decided to stock up while they were on sale.  I cannot...

Life Lately: 2 Months Postpartum

Life Lately: 2 Months Postpartum

Happy Friday! It is hard to believe, but Addison turned two months old this week.  I thought that it would be a great time to do a life update to let you know how my little family is doing. How Addison is doing… Addison is a very sweet, cuddly, tolerant baby. We’re very lucky that she has such an easy-going disposition considering how her brother is always in her face and/or making tons of noise.  She did go through a collicky period for about the first 6 weeks, but thankfully, it was just for an hour or so every evening.  She...

Part two: My daughter’s birth story

Part two: My daughter’s birth story

(Continued from part one…) Once we arrived at the hospital, I was wheeled into the maternity ward and immediately brought to the delivery room. I don’t remember things moving so quickly when I went into labor with Michael, but the nurses sure seemed eager to get the ball rolling (and the baby moving) this time around. After changing into one of those stylish and lovely hospital gowns, I made my way to the hospital bed- and to be honest, I was kind of regretting the fact that I scarfed down a big lunch beforehand.  It seemed like a...
