My Top 5 All Natural Budget Friendly Baby Products

(Please note – this post contains affiliate links, see disclosure)

There are so many baby products out on the market that it is sometimes hard to know what you really need. I have found that less is more. The products which can multi-task is really the way to go! 

Here are my top 5 all-natural budget friendly baby products that I have used over time with my three boys (and one I just found and had to share, as it is life changing)! 

1. Dr Bronners Unscented Baby Soap – I have used this on all my boys and love it! A little goes a long way. My current bottle has lasted me well over 7 months! 

I also use this to wash the dogs, as a body wash & shampoo for the entire family, and to make my homemade baby wipes! For only $6.45/bottle from Thrive and that it can serve multiple purposes, definitely makes it one of my favs!

2. Coconut Oil – 

I have posted many articles on my love for coconut oil. I order the Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil in the large gallon tub from Tropical Traditions This will last us for about 8 months! Right now they are having a special where a gallon will run you $79. That is around $.53/ounce! 

There are so many reasons why I love Tropical Traditions, but their farming practices, the fact that their oil is made in small batches, and wet milled from fresh coconut milk are just a few. Here is a great article that describes their practice in more detail.

I use this on my lil guy for an all over moisturizer after his bath, for his cradle cap and diaper rashes! Continue Reading…

Healthy, Easy, & Thrifty School Lunch Options

January 22, 2017

My oldest will be six next month….dear lord. He’s been in kindergarten for the past five months and has an amazing dad who packs his lunch everyday! Packing can be a big pain, so I wanted to share some of our healthy, easy, and thrifty school lunch options.

As a kid, I always bought my school lunch (packing was really unheard of in my house) but my husband packed his (himself). We did not have to worry about peanut allergies back then and I think I had a brownie (or two) everyday. 

Obviously that was years ago and things are a bit different. We now understand that much of the crap put into our foods are filled with sugar, GMOs, pesticides, etc.  Continue Reading…

Easy Kid-Friendly Upcycled Valentine’s Day Cards

February 8, 2015

My “almost” four-year old has his first “official” Valentine’s Day Party this up coming week. I wanted to have him make the cards that he’s passing out rather than buying them. Secretly, craft time, is one of the few times the he actually wants to spend with me right now. He is currently  on a kick to only be with his dad doing “boy things”. Ugh!

So, while perusing Pinterest I found these cute DIY valentine’s day cards. It looked super easy, so I thought I would give it a go.

Using some old broken crayons and construction paper already on hand, we were able to make some really cute valentine’s day cards for my son’s preschool class. Plus, my lil guy did most of the work!
