Product spotlight: hosie naturals’ Love Your Labor Oil, or: I Didn’t Know I Was in Labor

Sometimes I marvel at how the hosie naturals product line has grown so much since the day I met its owner, Kari Feucht, in early October 2010. That was the day she gifted me with a small bottle of something mysterious that she told me not to open, not to touch, smell, or handle in any way until my pregnancy had reached what they call “full-term”—37 weeks*.

Jingle bells, jingle bells, down your local streets!

Anybody who knows me knows that I talk a big talk about buying Christmas presents before December so that, in our home, Advent can be Advent and not "Christmas shopping season." For the most part, I succeed! But we have a big family. There's always that point where the summer spending cash runs out, and here it is almost mid-December, and I've got at least three gift recipients left on the shopping list and a couple White Elephant exchange gifts to figure out!

Why I love my Ergo - by Tonia Neal

Babywearing has been around since the beginning of time. Before we had strollers, bouncers, and Pack ‘N’ Plays, we had our arms…and maybe a scrap of hide to tie our babies to our bodies. We carried them.  Fast forward to 2013, and many of us still instinctually hold our babies close while trying to navigate all that parenthood requires of us. Modern studies are showing that our instincts have once again led us down the right path. We now know that carrying our babies’ decreases fussiness, helps to facilitate breastfeeding by aiding in the production of prolactin & oxytocin, reduces the risk of  SIDS, and contributes to proper physical and emotional development.

Diaper Bag Detox - by Nicole Reed

When I was pregnant with my first child, I felt intimidated when I saw seasoned moms lugging around large diaper bags that could have easily passed for suitcases. Do I really need that much equipment to go in public with my child? Just the thought of packing all of that mysterious “stuff” was enough to convince me that we would never leave the house once our baby was born.

Many of our new fans may be wondering...what is this whole diaper party thing?  Well, let me tell you, this is how eLeMeNO-Pee got started!  Our sweet little company began with 5 reps in Lake Charles, Lafayette, & Baton Rouge.  They would schedule a time to come to your house, show you a few of the cloth diapers available on the market and what we sell and then help you choose the system that works best for you.

3/8/2013

I've always leaned towards the crunchy side, so I'm always amazed when I run into people who have no environmental awareness...at all.  No judgement here, it's just something that has come so natural to me my whole life.  I'm just the type of person who's always wondered where trash goes.  That's not all there is to being eco-conscious, but it's definitely one aspect.

Going from staying home (most of the time) and cloth diapering to working full time (outside the home) and cloth diapering.

So for the last 2.5 years I've been cloth diapering my little guy and loving it so much! That's why I got into this business in the first place! I would often wonder (as I was feeling so smart) why wouldn't anyone want to use cloth diapers? They are SO wonderful, not to mention the $$$ savings and being better for the environment.

An Unexpected Reminder

Today as I read my (try to do) daily devotional, I was reminded of something awfully humbling.   Most of our readers and customers are parents, and it is easy to think of ourselves in the context of BEING a parent. But we are also all still children.   OUR parents' children.

What's lurking in disposable wet wipes?

I'm sure by now you've seen the news article circulating that exposes the terrible rashes little ones are getting from disposable wet wipes. Wet wipes are a quintessential "mommy staple" but the report of terrible reactions definitely makes one second-guess using them. Per the article, "..this is because manufacturers have bumped up the amount of MI [methylisothiazolinone] used in wipes 25-fold." Methylisothiazolinone is a powerful biocide and preservative within the group of isothiazolinones, used in personal care products.
