New to her store are Postpartum Pads. These are fabulous for mamas who want a little "vag cush" in the postpartum period after labor.
HERE is her tour of the postpartum pads on YouTube. I wish something like this had been around when we were birthing Sweet Peas!!
Reasons why you might consider greening personal care items:
We made the switch to reusable wipes over the summer after I read the ingredients in pretty much *all* the top name brands of wipes, even the ones that claim to be "natural". HERE is a good laugh about that marketing tactic! I literally cannot bring myself to buy disposable wipes unless we are in dire straights and we really can't wash while we are on the road. We are now six months in to using the cloth wipes - they still look great, stay soft, and our clean stash works to wipe bottoms, noses, and anything else that needs wiping and washing.
After seeing how easy it was to make that transition, we made the switch to "unpaper" towels. This family of six that used to go through a bulk store pack in about six weeks had the same package last for 4+ months. The only reason we finished the pack is because our washing machine broke down and wasn't repaired for six weeks...long story...after a few 15+ load trips to the laundromat something had to give. Anyway, happy that our machine is fixed and we are now fully back to our reusable habits.
We are now venturing to try the mama cloth - the more I know about the chemicals in personal care products, the less willing I am to expose our daughters to them, especially as they enter their reproductive years.
What do you think...
Have you thought about making the switch to reusable items in your home? Did you make the switch? Tell us about it!
