Tasty cocktail recipes from organic liquor are a perfect way to toast Earth Day.

They say that to take care of anyone else, you first need to take care of yourself. This year I’ll prepare to show our planet Earth Day love by first showing myself some love with one (maybe two?) of these eco-cocktails made with organic liquor. Hey, we’ve gone organic with everything else, why not with our spirits, too? If you do imbibe, these happen to be delicious as well as a little better for the planet. For you pregnant ladies or non-drinkers, just stick with some of our favorite mocktail recipes. Serve in locally made glassware, wash with limited water...

Terrific organic skin care for babies, moms, and women who used to be babies.

If you smell something delicious that’s like a cross between a creamsicle, a vanilla candle, and springtime (in the best possible way), it’s probably me. That’s because I’ve been using the organic skin care products from Summer Sky Organics. Specifically the Mandarin Vanilla Mama Belly Oil. Not on my belly, as I’m not pregnant. But pretty much everywhere else. Just like the rest of the products from this mama-run, organic skin care company, the belly oil has a variety of uses for mamas, expecting mamas, babies, and women who have never even been near a baby in their lives, but just...

Look up “adorbs” in the dictionary, find these cool onesies for babies

If you don’t know what totes adorbs means, the Earth Cadets shop will show it to you (Or, a teen who you wish would talk like someone from Earth) with a selection of wildly cool onesies for babies.  From organic cotton one-pieces and adult tees to pillows and recycled totes, everything in the shop is screen printed in Chicago by hand and is, yes, utterly adorable.

Mod, organic swaddling blankets for cool moms. And cool babies.

There is nothing sweeter than a new baby, swaddled up like a little burrito. Especially if it gets the kid to sleep at last. (You know what I mean.)  Not surprisingly, the baby swaddling blanket market is heavy on  patterns of precious teddy bears and rubber duckies, so I’m happy to find swaddlers for modern mamas in the market for something a little different.   There is hope out there for those of us interested in baby gifts that are more chic than cutesy. Etsy’s Wren & Rumor shop has baby blankets in amazing fabrics that have turned our...

Time to ditch the antibacterial hand soaps in favor of these 5 safe soaps for babies and kids.

If you’ve been following the recent news (and our own posts for the last few years), it  turns out that antibacterial soaps are not the safe soaps for babies and kids they’ve claimed  to be. The FDA recently issued a statement saying that after 40 years of study, they’ve found no evidence that anti-bacterial agents, such as triclosan, are any more effective than regular soap and water in killing bacteria. Worse yet, triclosan and its like may be messing with our hormone levels and creating drug-resistant bacteria. Uh, no thanks!  While natural hand sanitizers are still a good option if soap isn’t...

The cutest baby clothes: Editors’ Best of 2013

We’re so excited to present our Editors Best of 2013 series. As always, no voting, no vote-begging, no entrance fees. Just the stuff we really really loved this year–starting with the cutest baby clothes of the year in 0-12mo. This is always one of the hardest for us–not necessarily because there are thousands of great ones, though there are lots, but because every single one makes us miss those little toes and little fingers and sweet little baby heads. (Though not so much the diapers.) Nununu (at top) It’s always refreshing to find cool clothes for baby that go beyond...

Ever wished you could bathe in a peppermint mocha?

I love my peppermint mocha latte as much as the next girl, so it’s a shame they’re gone so fast that all I’m left with is a whipped cream mustache and fond memories.

Moksa Organics is a company based on love for nature, activism, and peace, so you know this Mistletoe Holiday Bath Set is as kind to the world as it is...

3 classic holiday treats for kids with food allergies

It’s no fun being that kid with food allergies who gets a chocolate Santa in your stocking, only to find your mom taking it away because there are no ingredients written on the foil. But it’s probably worse being that mom. So we’re happy to see more delicious Christmas treats each year, made with those very kids in mind.     Allergen-free Gingerbread House From the conscientious and talented folks at Sensitive Sweets Bakery, there’s no gluten (tapioca flour does the trick), dairy, eggs, soy, peanuts or tree nuts.
