New Products To Try

I just received my latest edition of Working Mother magazine and as always I was introduced to many new products. In this puos I will share a few I plan to try out.


Currently the girls and I use Shea Moisture's products, specifically the baby oil rub. Some time ago Target had BOGO and I stocked up. Each product is about $9.99 each, I have to supply my home and my mother-in-law's, so this was a great deal.

This stuff smells so good!

I'm always on the look out for vitamins to supplement Lil D's limited food intake. In the magazine I noticed the advert for Carlson for Kids  nutritional supplements. They have a Fish Oil I want to give a try.

 The last discover I found worthy of investigating was a service that allows you to rent-a-toy. The Newark, NJ based company is called Spark Box Toys. They describe their service as "Net Flicks for toys". They offer monthly plans from $23.95 to $35.95 {or yearly service at $249 + $299}. This seems pretty cool and will allow us to save money and alleviate the toy boredom which most kids experience. This is also a great gift for the little ones in your life {Hint, Hint: Aunties and Uncles}.





New Generation of Cloth Diapers

About two years before we tried to conceive I made the decision to live a greener life and reduce my carbon footprint. I purchase almost all organic groceries (for a high ass weekly grocery bill), I try to purchase mostly products packaged and made with recycled materials, and I just stopped being so wasteful. Being green has also extended to my personal hygiene. I use less chemical in my beauty products like my deodorant, tooth paste, hair care products, etc. I stopped relaxing my hair a little over two years ago and it feels great to do without the creamy crack. As I begin to spend my life savings on baby products I've looked for companies and products that share my desire to be more eco-friendly.

I've been grappling using disposable diapers. To me its like drinking bottle water, its convenient but sooo bad for the earth. Well my research lend me to my latest purchase, gDiapers, a wonderful hybrid diapering product.

gDiapers flushable diaper refills are designed to keep your baby dry and happy. Because they are plastic-free, you can flush, compost or even toss them. gDiapers flushable diaper refills are made of sustainably farmed wood fluff pulp, sodium polyacrylate (SAP) for absorbency, and cellulose rayon. No plastic.
