Babies & Kids
As a mom interested in real food and natural living, I've discovered a few key products that have really helped me out, plus some really fun items from artisan craft-makers.
Real Food for Pregnancy
Prenatal nutrition can be confusing. A lot of the advice you have been given about what to eat (or what not to eat) is well-meaning, but frankly, outdated or not evidenced-based. In Real Food for Pregnancy, you will get clear answers on what to eat and why, with research to back up every recommendation. Author and specialist in prenatal nutrition, Lily Nichols, RDN, CDE, has taken a long and hard look at the science and discovered a wide gap between current prenatal nutrition recommendations and what foods are required for optimal health in pregnancy and for your baby’s development. There has never been a more comprehensive and well-referenced resource on prenatal nutrition. With Real Food for Pregnancy as your guide, you can be confident that your food and lifestyle choices support a smooth, healthy pregnancy.
Protect All Over Sunscreen SPF 30
Many sunscreens use chemical sun blockers like oxybenzone, which soaks through skin, triggers allergic skin reactions, and may be a hormone disruptor. Protect All Over uses non-nano zinc oxide, which is a safer, effective, natural mineral sun blocker, protecting against both UVA and UVB rays. Aloe helps hydrate skin, while antioxidant-rich green tea and blood orange extracts fight free radicals.
Old Fashioned Wood Swing
Great for old massive trees and free spirited folk, this tree swing is made of responsibly-sourced southern pine from the south eastern region of the United States. They do not take any responsibility for the ruckus and mayhem that may occur on this swing.
Organic Baby Clothes
Support your local farmer, by Magnolia Roots Co. Cream – 100% Organic Cotton & Made in the USA! Super soft, makes a great, gender neutral gift!
Teenie Greenie Wide Straight Glass Straws
These glass straws are great for enticing kids to drink more water, and are safe for hot drinks as well. When my kids are sick, I have them drink warm broth through a straw and it makes them feel special. They’re easy to clean, colorful, and made of the strongest commercially available borosilicate “Pyrex” glass, which is shatter-resistant and more durable than competing products! Measures 9 in x 12 mm. They are also dishwasher safe.
LunchBots Trio Stainless Steel Snack Container, 3 Section, Stainless Steel Lid
LunchBots Trio Stainless Steel Food Containers feature three compartments for balanced snacks: grapes, cheese and crackers; sushi, edamame and carrots; pasta, chicken and cherry tomatoes – the combinations are endless! Whatever you pack, LunchBots make meals more appetizing, helping ensure your food containers return home empty. Made of the highest quality 18/8 stainless steel, LunchBots Trio food containers are durable and only stainless steel touches your food. Dishwasher safe!
LunchBots Bento Trio LARGE All Stainless 3 Section Food Container
LunchBots Bento Trio Stainless Steel Food Containers are 60% larger than their classic containers. They’re perfect for packing a sandwich or salad on one side, plus chips, nuts, fruit, or one of our Dips Condiment Containers in the two smaller compartments. The colorful BPA-free plastic Dots cover snaps onto the all-stainless lid
LunchBots Thermal 16-ounce Stainless Steel Insulated Food Container
Enjoy a hot lunch on the go! Made of the highest quality 18/8 stainless steel, LunchBots Thermal 16-ounce Insulated Food Containers (available in many colors) keep hot foods hot for hours – without plastic coming into contact with your food. Plus, the bowl-like shape is natural to eat from and easy to fill, unlike awkward, tall cylinders. The generous, 16-ounce capacity holds a satisfying meal. Pack these lunch containers with homemade chicken soup, beef stew, vegetarian chili, and other favorites. Or fill with a fruit salad – they keep cold foods cold too! When you are done, simply hand wash your LunchBot and plan what you will savor in it the next day.
More Milk Plus
I recommend this product to all my breastfeeding friends who find their milk supply is dwindling. I found it really worked for me! It’s a tincture of fenugreek seed, blessed thistle, nettle leaf, and fennel seed. As a stressed out working mom who needed to pump (with my first baby), I found More Milk Plus to be a lifesaver.
Miracle Swaddle Blanket
This thing saved my life when I was a new mom. It’s simply the best swaddle blanket out there. My kids loved being wrapped up tightly – it calmed them right down and helped them sleep better. I always give these as a gift to expectant mothers.
Being a new parent can be challenging enough without adding sleep deprivation to it. The miracle blanket is the secret to a happy, well-rested baby, as well as a well-rested mom and dad. The miracle blanket has been proven to extend sleep periods between feedings by preventing night movement and separation anxiety; thus allowing mom and dad a greater duration for sleep. Your baby will sleep longer and deeper with the miracle blanket. The miracle blanket is the only true swaddling blanket that guarantees its effectiveness with it’s triple patented arm flap design and length. The only thing you’ll have to worry about is which color to choose.
Baby Bundle Collection
A trio of head-to-toe essentials for your baby. Gentle All-Over Wash cleanses body and hair with a tear-free formula, Soothing Oil absorbs easily and nourishes skin, and Daily Protective Balm acts as a layer of protection for sensitive, delicate skin.
Kids Bath Collection
Children deserve to be protected, which is why Beauty Counter has taken special care to create a bath collection that is gentle, effective, and kid-friendly without any hidden ingredients. Kids Bath Collection includes our berry-scented Kids Body Wash, along with our Nice Do Shampoo and Not a Knot Conditioner, both with an orange-vanilla swirl scent kids will love.
Protect Stick Sunscreen SPF 30
Great for you AND your kids. My son has very sensitive skin and reacts to almost all sunscreen, but this one works great on him! Formulated with non-nano zinc oxide, our Stick Sunscreen provides sheer protection from UVA/UVB rays and glides on smoothly without leaving white residue. Compact and easy to use, our kid-friendly stick is suitable for face and body and provides water-resistant sun protection for the entire family. Organic ingredients, including coconut oil and acai fruit oil, help to hydrate and protect your skin.
White Noise Machine (fan inside)
I much prefer this to other noise machines because instead of a digital recording, it has an actual fan inside that creates a sound of rushing air.
#1 RATED WHITE NOISE MACHINE! The Multi-Speed Natural White Noise Machine is so effective, it was named “Official Sound Conditioner” of the National Sleep Foundation. Choose high or low speed, then twist the cap to increase or decrease the size of the sound hole openings. By adjusting the speed and sound openings, you’ll customize the volume and tone to find a soothing white noise that’s ideal for you. Features 8′ cord and neutral, fog-white color.
