Product Review for Sweetbottoms Baby Boutique

Wrapsody Water Wrap-6_stomped

 

SUMMER IS HERE! And here in North Carolina that means a lot of hot days spent either at the pool or the beach! This is the perfect time to take a closer look at the WrapDuO by Wrapsody: Sport and Water Wrap. This wrap is quite versatile and works on both land and water comfortably. Some use it for yoga or low-impact exercise, some use it in the shower, and it is so lightweight that it makes a great wrap for the summer heat.

 

Wrapsody Water Wrap-43_stomped

 

The fabric is made from 55% recycled fibers and comes in a zippered bag – BONUS – it can double as a wetbag! The fabric resembles swimsuit fabric so it is lightweight and folds up very small. It will fit into a quart sized Ziploc bag – so it is great for beach or vacation travel since it won’t take up much room. The fabric has a UPF 45 – so it blocks 97.5% – 98% of the suns rays. This is not only helpful in keeping your baby protected but if you spread the wrap over your shoulders you can receive some of the benefits too! The WrapDuO now comes in two colors; Black Pearl or Lagoon (shown in the pictures of this post).

 

Wrapsody Water Wrap-53_stomped

 

The wrap is a long piece of fabric (Regular size – 4.6m | Long size – 5.5m) and has tapered ends. The width of the wrap is approximate 19 inches. The wrap comes in two sizes, regular and long; regular size is sufficient for me. There is a learning curve to wrapping your baby. The packaging comes with visual instructions but you can find videos online to show you – similar to this one. AND if you are local to Raleigh NC, you can go into Sweetbottoms Baby Boutique for hands on help. Once you wrap a couple times you will get the hang of it quickly.

WrapDuO is best used for babies 8 to 25 pounds. Though you could get away with a heavier baby in the water. With the small stretch in the fabric, if the baby is heavy it can be more uncomfortable. The water helps with the weight of the baby. My toddler is about 29 pounds. And when we are at the pool and he is wanting to take a nap it is easy for me to put him in the wrap. He is a tad heavy but if I get the bottom half of him in the water it is much more comfortable. I wore him a lot more in the water last year when he was only 4 or 5 months old so I imagine this wrap will come in more use with younger smaller babies. For land or fitness use – I would stay in the recommended weight range.

I find that having a water wrap is quite useful when you have an older child you are attending to as well. It is much easier to ensure your older children are safe when you know your youngest is safely wrapped in the WrapDuO giving you two free hands at moments notice. Since the wrap is made of quick drying fabric it can easily air dry. And if you need to wrap your baby before it is completely dry, it will still wrap with ease even while damp. I use two pant hangers along a shower rod to hang mine dry!

The WrapDuO is available online at Sweetbottoms Baby with FREE SHIPPING on all US orders. The retail price is $73

Who came up with this brilliant product?  Let us tell you about them!

maggie_and_meliss_mediumWith Maggie’s first son, Kelley, trips to the grocery store were definitely on her “dread” list. When she had her second son, Finnegan, aka the Finn-A-Monster, it moved to the top of that list. But then Maggie’s grocery store began stocking those food pouches you’ve probably seen.

On one particular visit, after substantial clamoring, Maggie caved and popped the tops of two pouches. A miracle ensued – she watched in amazement as her boys sat quietly in the cart, working out ounces of healthy fruits and veggies, which they wouldn’t dare eat out of a bowl. Never missing an opportunity, she sped through the remaining grocery store aisles in relative peace. By the time the shriveled pouches moved along the conveyor belt to checkout (yes, she paid for them) Maggie realized that she had all of the items on her shopping list, and when was the last time she had done that? Someone’s new product had just made her life easier, and she was in love.

 

Kelley_Finn_dk_091412-350_square_mediumBut Maggie’s romance with food pouches was short lived. Yes, she loved the fact that her kids could feed themselves, that they would actually be clean after doing so and that she didn’t have to lug around spoons, bibs, bowls, napkins and breakable jars. But she found that the pouches were expensive and offered a limited variety of foods. And she cringed each time she had to throw the single-use packages in the trash. That is when she realized the world needed a “reusable” food pouch that could be filled with the foods her kids like (or she wants them to like), which would help her save money, as well as the planet. Not a bad idea, right?

 

Bailey_Spoon_dk_091412-177_square_mediumBut an idea is just an idea until you make it happen, so Maggie reached out to her close friend (designer and recent new mom of baby Bailey) Melissa to help. Maggie and Melissa realized that they wanted a product that wasn’t just practical, but that was also, well, beautiful. Something they’d be proud to whip out at the playground, park or store. Even something they’d eat out of themselves. After several planning sessions, Maggie and Melissa realized that they had the perfect team to make this a reality. And the Little Green Pouch was born.

The Little Green Pouch has made Maggie and Melissa’s lives easier, and they think it can do the same for you. Perhaps it will even allow you to buy all of the fruits and veggies on your list during your next shopping trip. (And puree them of course.)

 

During the month of April (while supplies last), you can get a FREE Featured Natural Product – Little Green Pouch with your purchase of $35 or more!  If you’re local, simply ask at checkout!  This free product will be available until they have all been given away.  Supplies are limited, so shop fast!

 

 

Tula Baby Carrier | Product Review

Tula Baby Carrier | Toddler Tula | Product Review for Sweetbottoms Baby Boutique

Tula Toddler Sweetbottoms Baby

I was introduced into the world of babywearing about a year after the birth of my first son. I had a moby wrap with my 1st but rarely used it due to its rather difficult instructions (especially for a beginner). It’s a good thing I didn’t wear him much because looking back at photos – I know now I wore him all wrong! When it came time for baby #2 I knew I wanted to wear him not only so that I could be hands free but to allow juggling of two kids to be a bit more seamless.

I chose a ring sling and ergo as my main carriers before my 2nd was born. I was very happy with my choices and my child loved being worn in both of them. Then he grew… and kept getting heavier. And wearing him in the Ergo on my back become and uncomfortable chore. I found myself reaching for the stroller more and more. And the days he needed a nap – I was less inclined to strap him into a carrier with a fear of how long he would nap. The Ergo was a great buckle carrier but I just found it more uncomfortable as my child grew.

The word ‘Tula’ found its way into my vocabulary at first when I was introduced to some amazing and colorful prints. I was tagged in a post for their new print – Aperture (a camera print). I fell in love – but even more so when I learned that they had a toddler size! I have spent the month wearing my kids in the Toddler Tula.

The biggest thing I have noticed has been the comfortable factor for me! The Tula has dual-adjustment straps allowing for a perfect fit. The extra padding in the shoulders and the wide contoured hip belt help disburse the weight of the child to allow for a very comfortable carry. The belt is equipped with a velcro pocket – allowing you to carry a few items and keep even more hands free. I use this pocket when we go to the park so I can just put my keys and phone in the pocket for safe keeping.

Tula Toddler Sweetbottoms Baby comfortable seat for babies and kids

Notice the wide seat for the kids and their legs and bottom create a comfortable ‘M’ shape. There is extra padding along the edges to allow for a more comfortable wear for the children. I wore my 25 pound toddler in the store for an hour (in a front carry) and not once did I feel the need to take him out and place him in the cart. He was happy. I was happy. The trip was a success.

I should also add, nursing in the carrier is a breeze. The shoulder straps have an adjuster right in the front. I loosened the side I wanted to nurse on, and it allowed for a little extra room to nurse my son. Once finished, I tightened it back up to the comfortable fit. This adjuster is perfect for anyone with more broad shoulders (like my husband). This allows for a seamless transition between carriers, we both find this to be a very comfortable carrier.

Tula Toddler Sweetbottoms Baby DIfferent Frames Broad Shoulders

The Tula comes with a hood that clips onto the straps. It is a great way to remove some of the elements to help your child fall asleep and keep their head from moving around too much once they are asleep. When I wear my child to try and get him to take a nap, I usually don’t put the hood up until he falls asleep. Though there have been times putting it on has helped his wandering eyes.

Notice the same babywearer below with two different kids – the versatility on this carrier is so spectacular.

This carrier is designed for front and back carries.

Tula Toddler Sweetbottoms Baby Front and Back Carry

There are two soft structured Tula Carriers; Standard and Toddler.

The image below highlights the main differences between the two.

Tula Toddler Sweetbottoms Baby Difference between standard and toddler tula

It is important to keep these differences in mind when choosing the right size for you and your baby. If you desire to us the Tula with smaller children you can use the infant insert from birth.

Tula Carriers have an excellent resale value. When taken great care of, a Tula will be easily sold or traded for close to the retail value paid. So if you purchase a standard Tula for your small child; selling it to fund the purchase of a new one should be rather simple.

Take a look at the wide variety of vibrant prints of the Standard Tula and Toddler Tula carriers that Sweetbottoms has in stock – and they offer Free Shipping on all orders shipping to the US!

Young Living Thieves Oil and Green Air Diffuser

 

We recently started carrying Young Living Essential Oils and Green Air AromaMister Ultrasonic Essential Oil Diffusers, and couldn’t be happier about it. Essential Oils have many wonderful uses, and are especially easy to use with a quality diffuser!

Young Living Essential OilsI interviewed CARE instructor Christina Hagan, of Healthy Steps NC, to learn more about Young Living Essential Oils and their uses.

You can also read more about Essential Oils in this post.

How long have you been using essential oils, and why have you chosen to use Young Living exclusively?

I was introduced to essential oils in 2003 when I was stressed and sick – the oils worked which made me want to learn more.  While in massage school I ended up with a collection of different brands of essential oils because everyone said they had the best!  I tested them on myself when I had an allergic reaction to medication.  From the meds, I started getting itchy bumps – the bumps started on my neck and continued to cover my body.

For some reason I decided to do an oil test right there and then.  I applied a spot of YL oil on the inside of my arm and another brand on the other arm and went to bed.  When I woke up – the only place on my body that did not have itchy bumps was where I put the YL oil.  That helped me to see that there is a difference in EOs.  I started to do more research and that is how I and ended up taking a CARE Intensive and becoming a CARE Instructor.

Young Living Thieves

What are the benefits of essential oils, and how do you implement them in your everyday life?

We use the oils in our massage practice regularly.  The oils help to relax muscles, so we use the oils practically in every massage.  I also use the oils when I’m doing manual lymph drainage, as the oils support lymph movement.  I use the oils in Raindrop Technique and AromaShapes.  EOs are easy self care tools for clients, so I share with clients simple ways they can use the oils to relax muscles, support sleep, reduce swelling, reduce colds and the flu and reduce appearance of cellulite. We use essential oils instead of over the counter meds and to clean our house.  We have successfully replaced common toxic products (over the counter meds, air fresheners, cleaning products and self care products) with essential oils!

We are giving away Young Living Thieves Essential Oil this month. What is Thieves used for, and how is it used?

Thieves is excellent to reduce the number of colds your family gets and to shorten the length of a cold.   Best ways to use as a preventative is to: apply 1-2 drops on each of the soles of your feet daily (for those under 18 months, dilute it 50/50); diffuse the essential oil when you and your family are in the room together.  What ever time that works for you…

Young Living Thieves EO and Diffuser

We are also giving away a Green Air AromaMister diffuser. How does a diffuser work, and where can it be used? 

There are many different types of diffusers – but the goal of all of them is to get that essential oil in the air in tiny droplets so you are breathing the oil and the oil is landing on everything in the room.  It helps you because you are breathing the oils, which then goes to your lungs and blood stream to help fight off those nasty bugs.  It also helps to fight off nasty germ bugs floating in the air and those that you carried into the house on your shoes, purses, books, etc…

Featured Natural Product: Motherlove Diaper Rash and Thrush

Although my first baby was a breastfeeding champ, he was riddled with constant diaper rashes. Rough, painfully irritated yeast rashes that just wouldn’t go away.

Ahhhh, relief at last.

Tula Baby Carriers

Tula Baby Carrier

I thought I had it all figured out. My first born was sleeping through the night, I was making him healthy meals (which he enjoys!), I had just converted to cloth diapers, and I was starting to have time to clean the house again. Then I had another baby. Holding an infant while chasing a toddler seemed like an impossible task, until I rediscovered baby wearing.

Wearing her conveniently allows me to snuggle her, while keeping up with my active toddler. We recently tried a Tula Baby Carrier, and really enjoyed it. Here’s why:

  • Tula Baby Carriers are crafted out of 100% cotton and the highest quality Duraflex buckles, making them sturdy and durable.

Tula Buckle

  • They are comfortable! When I wear my nearly 40 pound toddler in the Tula, I have less stress on my shoulders because some of his weight is distributed to my hips. I like the way the three section hip belt hugs my hips, and offers a storage pocket for my keys or phone. The extra squishy padding in the shoulder straps and child’s leg area is an added bonus!

Tula Leg Padding

  • The straps are quite possibly my favorite feature of the Tula. They can be extended from the top or bottom, which allows for my husband and I to use the same carrier for our toddler or baby. I can adjust the straps quickly when I wear the carrier on my front, which makes breastfeeding in the Tula a breeze.

Tula Strap

  • They are machine washable, easy to use, and can be put on and taken off quickly. This is especially convenient, now that my oldest wants to go, go, go, and I need to strap the little one on at a moments notice.
  • The detachable hood supports my baby’s head while she nurses or sleeps, and it is easy to tuck in to the carrier or take off completely.

Tula Hood

  • Tula Baby Carriers come in standard and toddler sizes. The standard Tula Baby Carrier fits babies from birth (about 7.5+ pounds) to 40 pounds, if used with the infant insert. The Tula Toddler Carrier is designed for children that are about 25 to 50 pounds. Both sizes can be worn on your front or back, and provide a wide seat to support your child in a natural position. Tula also offers “Free to Grow” extensions, which can be attached to your standard Tula to help maintain an ergonomic position on bigger children (up to 40 pounds). If you’re local and want to see how they fit, stop by our store and try one on!

Tula Baby Carrier in Rockets

Tula is a family business, founded by husband and wife team, Mike and Ula. Although they wore their first baby, they became more interested in buckle carriers after their second baby was born. After searching for the perfect carrier with no luck, they created their own. They began sharing their carriers with friends and family, and their business quickly grew! Tula now offers woven wraps and wrap conversions as well.

Featured Natural Product: GroVia Itty Bitty Magic Stick Diaper Balm

I’m excited to announce that we’ll be giving away the smaller version of GroVia’s Magic Stick this month: GroVia’s Itty Bitty Magic Stick Diaper Balm.

Our Employee Pick of the Month: July

July’s Employee Pick of the Month comes from Raquel.  She recently relocated to North Carolina after spending most of her life in Brooklyn.  Her daughter, Anaïs, just turned two this past April.  These two are kind and generous, and can usually be found in the front of the store or off practicing/teaching yoga.

Raquel's daughter, Anaïs

Raquel’s pick of the month is the Blessed Nest Organic Nursing Pillow.   Many mainstream nursing pillows are made from synthetic fibers, but the Blessed Nest Nursing Pillow is filled with organic bulkwheat hulls.  When Raquel was deciding on cloth diapers and other products she would use for Anaïs, having natural and organic materials was an integral part of what she chose. Raquel loves this pillow and recommends it for many reasons:

Blessed Nest Organic Nursing Pillow

  • it’s maleable-the pillow shapes and adjusts to fit your body and your baby’s.
  • it’s multi-purpose– the pillow can be used to help mom get comfortable, it can be used to support various nursing positions for baby, as a laptop pillow, etc.
  • it’s made by moms for moms-locally made with certified organic materials and designed specifically for moms
  • it’s organic and shipped in biodegradable materials-good for mom, baby and the earth
  • it can be used after nursing

Raquel said this several times. This pillow is useful for more than just nursing.

When nursing it is really hard to maintain good posture, in fact it tends to cause us to round our spines, which can lead to a sore, tight back.  Raquel recommends using the pillow to help alleviate that pain.

Her tip:

Lay on your back with the nursing pillow evenly placed between your shoulder blades. Then grab a rolled up towel or if you have it yoga block, and place that at the base of your neck.  Lay there and take some deep breaths. Just relax for a bit. You’ll feel your chest and back open up as you relax into this pose.  This is a great trick to use to help offset the effects nursing can have on your back and posture.

If you are looking for a great yoga class, check out Raquel’s class at the store on Thursday nights.
