Closed – Congratulations, susan!
I find that the most helpful products for parents are made by parents. Sisters Cheryl Tallman and Joan Ahlers are mothers to five children in total. They founded Fresh Baby to support other parents who want to feed their babies all natural foods and encourage healthy eating habits. Having been raised by a mother who was a gourmet cook, they’ve got the experience and practical knowledge under their belts and are now sharing their tools for success with others.
Earlier this year, I posted a review of the first Fresh Baby products, the So Easy Baby Food Kit and the So Easy Toddler Cookbook. I still use the baby food kit to make and store my own food purees to have on hand, and the toddler cookbook is my go-to book for when I get into a toddler-food cooking rut.
Fresh Baby has recently introduced two more helpful products for parents. The first is their line of Mama Jewels. These pretty creations are made with Swarovski crystals, sterling silver and glass beads. If you’re familiar with breastfeeding, you know that it is important to alternate sides to ensure an abundant supply of milk for your baby and to while also giving your breasts time to heal. Mama Jewels serve as a reminder of wear mama left off at the last feeding. Just put the jewel on the bra strap of the breast your baby fed from. This would have been a huge help to me when I started breastfeeding Emma, especially considering I barely slept at all in the beginning, and easily forgot just about everything!
Mama Jewels are available in Pink, Amethyst, Blue and Clear and are only $9.95. A portion of the proceeds are donated for breast cancer research.
I remember when we first brought Emma home from the hospital. We had strict instructions to keep track of diaper changes and feedings, and we scrambled for random pieces of paper to write it on. It was neither a pretty nor organized system, and sitters were baffled by it. If we had a Caregiver or All About Me Diary, everyone’s lives would have been much simpler. Even now when I leave her with one of her grandparents, I like to get an update on Emma’s naps, what her diapers were like and what she ate during the day. Even though she is older and we don’t necessarily have to track everything like we did when she was an infant, this diary is extremely helpful in keeping track of all of the ins and outs of her day.
The diary is spiral bound and includes enough pages to record four full months worth of days. It makes a great keepsake when you’re done with it. You can even insert a photograph of the baby into the area provided on the front cover. you can click the above photo to see a detailed view of the pages. The All About Me Caregiver Diary is only $10.95.
