Earth BABY cleansing products and hand sanitizers that are safe for a baby

Perhaps Baby has no idea what Christmas is or even a gift but Mom does and as parents we need easy-to-grab skincare and sanitizers we can travel with. We keep them in the diaper bag, the car, in multiple rooms in the house and even spare items at Grandmas! It’s the lotions, diaper creams and now hand sanitizers we always need bulk of. Earth BABY has these products in great travel sizes as well as full size and they are all natural and safe for baby.

I love this earth BABY on-the-go Kit that has everything you need including this bag to keep them all together. With this kit you get Diaper Rash Cream, Broad Spectrum SPF30+ Sunscreen, Aromatherapy Calming Mist (a heaven send) and hand sanitizer gel in a zipper organic travel bag.

earth BABY’s line of cleansing products, lotions, and hand sanitizers are safe for a baby’s skin and hair. The science behind Earth Baby is an exclusive patented formula called Oleosphere® Technology created to have time releasing ingredients called Oleosomes (organic skin-softening oils and vitamins). This offers the maximum amount of moisture in their skin throughout the day. All packaging is recyclable and kit bags are made from organic cotton.

At earth BABY you’ll find gifts for mom and baby this season. Shop their sanitizers, creams, lotions, bath products and more on their website and enjoy free shipping on orders over $35! Also visit earth Baby on Amazon.

In the Book Personalized Books for Kids make the Best Gifts to Treasure

When my son was younger he has a few books that had his name in them. At 12, he still has these books and always will. It is so fun to come across them as I organize his room or add more to his keepsake box. More than a book, In the Book Personalized Books for kids are keepsakes they will hold onto forever.

My nephew turns 1 next month and I love keepsake gifts. I had these 2 books made for him and they are so adorable. The Nursery Rhymes books is so fun and full of the classic nursery rhymes. On every page you turn his name is hidden somewhere. Above you can see it in the red bus. It will be so much fun as soon as he learns his name.

Equally adorable is the Disney What Makes (you) Great? Each page is a different Disney story with a reflection question on each page as well. The colors and characters are so fun and vibrant.

Is it the Right Time to Start Potty Training?

Is it the Right Time to Start Potty Training?

One of the most common questions I hear as a professional potty training consultant is, “How do I know when my child is ready?” There are some classic signs and signals you can look for including: a general interest in the bathroom, asking for a new diaper when they are wet or dirty, hiding to have a bowel movement, staying dry for longer periods throughout the day, and waking up dry from naps and/or overnight. Your child should also possess basic communication skills, either verbal or physical, and the ability to understand and follow basic direction. These things usually start presenting themselves somewhere between 22 and 28 months, making this the ideal age to potty train.

Keep in mind, that it is also just as important for you to be ready as your child’s teacher and coach. If you are prepared to fully commit and remain consistent with a plan that matches your child’s unique personality and potty learning style, it is sure to make for a successful potty training experience!

Once you are ready to start the process, here are three unique potty training tips that you won’t hear anywhere else! 

Tip 1: Take some time before you begin potty training to count down the days to no more diapers with your little one. About 3 to 5 days before you’re ready to start, wake up each morning and “x” off the day on the calendar together. Not only does this help your child mentally prepare for the upcoming change they’re about to experience, but it gives you the opportunity to build their confidence so they believe they can do it! This technique works really well for stubborn kiddos who tend to be resistant to change.

Tip 2: If your child ever seems anxious, apprehensive, or even afraid to release their pee and poop on the potty, try my bubble trick! Did you know that when you blow out air, it activates the same muscles we use to pass our bladder and bowels? It’s true! So while your little one is set up on the potty, try letting them blow bubbles. Not only does getting to do this typical outdoor activity inside entice your child to try, but it also relaxes them AND activates the muscles we use to pass our bladder and bowels! Gotta love an effective trick that is actually FUN!

Tip 3: When you’re ready to introduce underwear to your child, buy them in a size larger than what they would normally wear. Having the underwear be a slightly looser fit will help them remain more aware of their body’s sensations and urges and will be less easily confused with a diaper. This tends to reduce accidents, and who doesn’t want that?
