How do hoodie bath towels for kids get better? It’s a snap.

Standard hoodie bath towels for kids seem to have one major drawback: they slip off. Once you let your damp toddler loose, there’s no way that towel’s staying on that newly clean little head. [don’t miss an exclusive limited time discount after the jump!] So the new Bella Bundles collection of hoodie towels is really nothing short of magic.   In addition to being soft, plush, and super-absorbent, the towels come with a key ingredient to stay-on-age: a snap a few inches under the chin. Brilliant. The towels stay on!  Plus, they’re available in some of the coolest prints...

The online baby registry that keeps things natural

I will never forget that rush of giddy power when they put the baby registry gun in my hands. I had no idea what I was doing. I had no real concept of what I needed; just that I had the power to build my tiny nursery empire. Then the baby showed up, and I realized that, sadly, most of the things I really wanted could only be found online: the truly natural and organic products, the baby carriers, the wooden toys.  Now there’s a new kind of baby registry in town that lets you find those very things....

Finally, a guide to safe products for moms and babies. Also, an excuse to shop.

If you’re like me and on your second or third (or more!) kid, you already know which products will keep you feeling beautiful while you’re pregnant, and keep baby bouncy once she’s out in the world. You probably also hiss and hide behind your arm like a vampire from sunlight when you hear words like “phthalate” and “paraben.” But there are plenty of parents who have yet to learn how to tailor their bath and beauty routines to pregnancy, much less to which pastel bottle of lotion is better for baby. Good news: this book’s got the low-down, not...

2 great new products to take on baby’s dry skin. (And maybe yours? We won’t tell.)

Whether you’re battling windy weather or baby skin conditions like eczema, we’ve got two great, all-natural lotions for keeping skin supple and decidedly un-lizard-like. Both of them contain the healing properties of calendula, and both of them rock. Zoe Organics first hopped on our radar with their phenomenal bath teas for baby–and mamas like me. When I mentioned that my son’s hands were peeling horribly from eczema, Zoe’s founder and CEO, Heather, sent over their Extreme Cream over right away. It was an instant hit with us both. He stopped crying, and I found that my hands looked much...

Love product samples? Yep, us too.

I’ve often wished that I could buy samples of items before trying them because with my luck, I end up grabbing the biggest bottle of something and then hating it later. Well with this new service from CMP fave Abe’s Market, you can do just that. The new Discover Natural Samples program is simply brilliant, especially if you’re like me and love to be able to try new lesser known products in small amounts before purchasing them. Simply browse their offerings and then pick three samples you’d like to try — everything from natural health and beauty products, to...

A safer diaper wipe? Yep.

It always scares me when I see a laundry list of unpronounceable ingredients on my baby’s personal care packages. Especially when said product is a diaper wipe, meant to touch the delicate nether regions of my little one. Thankfully, there’s a new wipe in town that contains only two ingredients–water and fruit extract. WaterWipes from the Irish brand DermaH2O, have just launched in the U.S. and they very well might be the purest wipes around. Made with 99.9% water and .1% grapefruit seed extract, these are wipes you can feel confident about. I am seriously turned off by any...

Baby baths get plush. (Yes, plush.)

Bath time in our house is no easy feat. There’s a lot of wriggling and crying–from both baby and parents. I think partly it has to do with the fact that our plastic bathtub is not the comfiest of landing spots for little tushies. To remedy that, I’ve found really interesting new option. The plush, flower-shaped bath seat insert from Blooming Bath is like nothing I’ve ever seen. It provides a soft, safe place for babies to rest their little bottoms during cleaning time–easier than bathing a newborn in a plastic bathtub that’s five times bigger than her body....

Warthogs need love too, ya know.

I’ve seen many a hooded towel in my parenting tenure, but none quite like the new ones from 3 sprouts, which always has a way of ensuring equal rights for all animals when it comes to toddler bathtime. Yep, that’s a warthog hooded towel. I’m completely smitten with his adorable nose and intimidating tusks. Made from 100% cotton, inside and out, I bet he’d make a welcome addition to any bathroom towel rack. And you moms will appreciate the smart little loop to making hanging up a cinch. And really, what a perfect way to feed into your little...

A Dolphin Tale

“I got water in my eyes!” my son wailed.  But he wasn’t crying. Actually, he looked like he was trying to cry and couldn’t. “Doesn’t hurt, does it?” I said smugly.  And he shook his head no. A perfect chance to pitch a fit, lost to products that actually live up to their tear-free claim. Oh, and did I mention they’re also hypoallergenic, all natural, and organic? I’ve got to admit– Dolphin Organics impressed the heck out of me. The number one reason? Transparency. Each bottle is dominated by a large, clear label showing every single ingredient and its...

These natural baby hair products are 90210 approved

It generally doesn’t matter to me that a bunch of celebrities use a particular hair care product on their babies. But it did make me wonder what was so special about Jenerations Baby that Hollywood moms seem to be flocking to it. Jenerations Baby was founded by Jennifer Reilly, a mom with two kids and fourteen years of experience as a hairstylist. She wanted natural products she could feel safe using on her kids, so she designed the hypoallergenic line without sulfates, parabens, harsh chemicals, or essential oils that are potentially estrogen disruptors. Well, now I see what all those...
