Product Review: Tiny g’s #clothdiapers

The secret is out! I can finally tell you!! tiny babies should leave tiny footprints. You want your baby to be earth smart from the start. So we’ve added tiny gPants to the gDiapers family, perfect for babies 6-10 lbs. And with a front that snaps down there’s plenty of wiggle room for the umbilical cord to heal. Tiny gPants are now available exclusively in the new baby bundle. Enough to keep your baby covered from day one: When our little AppleBlossom was first born our diaper stash was too large, but due to circumstances we were blessed to be able to give a trial run to some Tiny g’s prototype from gDiapers. It has been a secret, but now they are out and available for all to have! I am so excited! It almost makes me want to go back in time so that I can get their new. . .

Product Review: No Slippy Hair Clippy

The second thing that we absolutely loved to use over our Christmas holidays and is now a daily necessity, in addition to the Dropper Stopper, are our No Slippy Hair Clippys. *Thanks to MaryLenore of BopStarPR for providing some samples for review.* We were in love at first sight!   The one comment that people always make when they see our AppleBlossom is, “Look at all that hair!” It is followed with my stating that, “Oh yes, she was born with it all.” Then the comments on the bows and how precious, cute, adorable, beautiful and so on that they are. It is so true. Our AppleBlossom was born with a full head of long hair for a baby girl and we treasure it. Although it has changed from being darker than my own, to now being a very ginger auburn much like her daddy’s beard, she has plenty of it.. . .
