Nursing Scarf * Muslin Blankets

If you are seeking a lightweight 100% bamboo blanket or nursing scarf, definitely give Les Enfant a try. Their bamboo cloth designs are sturdy, lightweight, and versatile. Combine fashion and function with the ultra-light-weight and airy nursing scarf. Additionally, the lightweight blankets are great for use during warm weather or where you want to keep things cool for the baby.

Baby Feeding Set

The Grabease Four-Piece Baby Feeding Set with award-winning utensil design is recommended by occupational therapists. The set includes one sectioned silicone bowl, one sectioned silicone plate, one ergonomic plastic spoon, and one ergonomic plastic fork. Free from BPA, Phthalates, and PVC. The ergonomic utensil design allows baby to experience the joys and explorations of feeding oneself, building hand/eye coordination and self-feeding skills. Dishwasher and microwave safe. Age 6m+.



Splash-resistant, Insulated Travel Cup

Are you tired of travel cups that tumble over or splash with every bump, or don't keep your drink warm or cool? Owala offers an insulated and splash-resistant solution for your hot or cold drink. Convenient size allows you to set it in the car, the pram, or the shopping cart and not have to worry about splashing at every bump. There are no moving parts to mess with. Drink from a custom SmoothSip spout. The vessel holds 20 oz. / 590 mL. BPA-free. Stain and odor resistant. Handwash only. This item is NOT leak-proof but does a great job of containing the contents during shaking and other movements.


Reusable Storage Bags

A better storage solution has arrived! These reusable storage bags are great for home, kitchen, garden, gym, play, or travel. Seal in odors with double zipper technology that has a lifetime guarantee. Made from puncture and tear-resistant reusable food-grade materials that are BPA, Latex, and Phthalate free. Sized from snack-sized up to 2 gal. /7.6L. Keep those single-use plastics out of the waste by opting for this more friendly and reusable alternative. Made in the USA.

Magnolia Soap & Bath Company has developed an even safer alternative to “safe” cleaning products. How is this possible? Choose from over 75 customizable scents. This non-toxic, plant-based soap is safe for sensitive skin without harmful ingredients. Bonus: With this soap, fabric softeners, and dryer sheets are not needed! Ingredients like Coconut Soap, Sodium BiCarbonate, and phthalate-free fragrances like "Steel Magnolia," "Posh Peony," "Cactus Bloom," and others, make doing the laundry just a little bit more fun...Can this be a thing? Put on your favorite show or podcast and get to folding those fresh clothes while you daydream of being at the beach.


Handcrafted Organic Skincare

Experience spa-quality beauty at home with Prato Botanico luxury skincare - handcrafted in small batches with botanical ingredients grown on a farm in Puglia, Italy. This Italian line includes ingredients like aloe vera, sweet almond/jojoba/grape seed oils, hyaluronic acid, sea fennel, prickly pear, and shea butter. Choose from Renewing Eye Serum, Purifying Face Mask, Calming Cleanser, Day and Night creams, and more.

  • Certified Organic cold-pressed botanicals using the BioPreserve Botanical™ Method

  • A subtle scent of organic essential oils and botanicals blended by an expert perfumer

  • Sustainably and ethically made while supporting local farmers

  • Free from parabens, synthetic fragrances, mineral oil, phthalates, or sulfates


Essential Oil Nasal Diffuser

Make use of the powers of essential oils with this handy silicone nasal ring diffuser. Choose from a variety of customizable real essential oil scents to help with relaxation needs, healthcare industry use, travel, or new mama stress relief (or for use when it's time to clean the diaper pail). Smells come in all forms, and this nasal diffuser certainly does the job of making the stinky jobs much more pleasant. Even without the stinky jobs, it is nice to experience your favorite scent as you move through your day. Individually wrapped diffusers are easy to use and easy to put on or remove.


Reusable Menstrual Pads

Say goodbye to single-use disposable pads. Instead, try out a sustainable, reusable, and organic solution to your period management with Cariona. Cariona comes in a variety of sizes and absorbency levels. While all of the pads are highly absorbent, they are also non-bulky, leak-proof, hypoallergenic, and machine washable. Choose from a number of colors and patterns.


Seaweed-based Underwear

Yes, you read that right! Natural fibers come from many sources, including, seaweed! Although, you would never guess that this super soft fabric is 25% SEACELL derived from seaweed. This seaweed-based underwear helps to prevent yeast infections and UTIs because it is breathable and contains amino acids, vitamins, and minerals that aid in soothing skin irritations. This fabric is moisure-wicking, odor-repellant, and more absorbent than cotton. Plus, extra effort has been made to make this soft fabric baby-safe. Why? Because baby-safe textiles have much higher quality control standards. Machine or hand-wash cold, and air dry.


Mother Nature's Bug Spray

No one likes putting harmful ingredients on their body to repel insects, and you don't have to with this spray for kids, adults, and gathering spaces. These blends contain "No Yucky Stuff" or mystery ingredients. Instead, they contain 100% all-natural ingredients and pure essential oils. The cans are pressurized with dry air instead of aerosol, to allow for consistent performance and improved shelf life. Great for sensitive skin, water-based formula for children, refreshing scent, and feels great on the skin. For keeping flys and other flying insects away from your outdoor play and dining spaces, opt for SCRAM! area treatment.


Plantain Chips

If you are into a unique and tasty snack experience, you must give these a try. The kids love them as well as the adults! Get a nice dose of fiber, iron, potassium, and calcium with these tasty crisps. Simple ingredients, great taste. No Trans Fat, Gluten-Free. A variety of sizes are available in flavors like Salted, Bomba!, Lime, and Garlic. Plaintain (a relative of the banana) is usually cooked before consumption. Chips are made similarly to how potato chips are made, but the plantain contains a different nutritional profile. Add these to your next picnic or birthday party!
