High Value Gripe Water Coupon Plus More

Normally when I post coupons I only list the coupons and do not usually recommend a specific product. I figure you know what you like and use. Well, I have a coupon that I highly recommend if you have a young child, new baby or a baby on the way.

Gripe Water is the most amazing product for babies and young children that get gas pains. The relief is almost instant in most cases. Of course as with any over the counter meds. you should check with your peditrician first.

Here are a few more coupons for your use.
I you have got a cat you sould try this awesome litter system. I dearly love my system. Completely no smell and very easy to use. I will never go back to regular litter again. I pinky swear on this one.

A Question For Mom & Dad? (revision)

How long do you plan to rear-face your child?

Do you know that rear-facing as long as possible at least until the age of 2 years old and preferably up to maximum weight/height limits of their convertible car seat is the recommendation of the American Academy of Pediatricians.
Rear-facing car seats are not considered a safety risk just because a child's legs are bent at the knees or because they can touch/kick the vehicle seat.
After writing this post I realized I would need to revise my post and include some information that might help others understand why we are trying to rear-face as long as possible. His legs being too long for the car seat has been questioned. I want you to think about this. In an accident that would be bad enough to break a child's legs it would be bad enough to break a child's neck. I would not want either to happen but if I would have to choose a broken leg can be fixed much easier than a broken neck.
If you are not sure that rear-facing is best for your child please watch the video below. I would like to hear what you think.

Please also check out more information here. To read more about Joel's Story go here

To ensure the safety of your child make sure your car seat is installed properly and the child fits the car seat by both weight and height. Please secure them properly a loose belt is not a safe belt.

 As you can see by the photos. Pooh Bear is rear-facing and he will be two and a half the end of May. He is very tall for his age.  We hope to keep him rear-facing at least until three.

Thank you for reading! I would love if you would share this post.You can find the twitter and facebook buttons below. You just never know you might even save a child's life by spreading the word.

Have a safe and happy week.

Turning Garden Soil by Hand.

If you have a garden post stop over and link up with Garden Club Thursday  and Frugal Days Sustainable Ways.
Grandma Bonnie has lent a garden plot to the Mini Farm Sustainability Project. The project coordinators are turning the soil by hand. They are double digging the garden and adding organic fertilizer.

Of course my grandsons had to be part of the fun. I will keep you up dated on the progress of this garden. The garden will be completely taken care of by the project coordinators while teaching us their unique gardening method. For more information stop over and visit theMini Farm Sustainability Project.

Wordless Wednesday

While traveling north much of what we saw was farm country. I caught a few barn photos. One of my favorite blogging friends, Chatty Crone suggested I post the photos because you might enjoy their beauty. So, here they are.

Happy Wednesday!!

Traveling North

We left early Thursday morning around 3:00 am. We traveled along in total darkness for a few hours. I really would have liked to see the sights but it was pitch black for a long while. Once a few threads of light appeared I started taking some photos. We drove through Wisconsin and on to Minnesota. We visited with family that we have not seen in many years. Over all the trip was interesting.

That's all for now. Happy Monday!

Mom and Baby Shampoo Free Of Phthalate and Sodium Laurl Sulfate

Have you heard about Susan Brown's Baby Natural Skin Care Products? I am always on the look out for safe bath products to use on my grandchildren. Two of my grandchildren have been diagnosed with eczema and a third with sensitive skin. With all their skin problems we are very careful what bath care products we use on them. When I received the package from Susan Brown's Baby in the mail last week I was so thrilled.
I hope you can read this label.

Tear Free, PH Balanced, Paraben Free and Phthalate Free! With all this free it is very gentle on baby's skin. We have used this at Pooh Bear's bath time all week. The scent is light and refreshing. It does not have that heavy baby powder scent . I tried to compare it to a scent that one would recognize. The best I can compare it to would be a light herbal flowery scent. The body wash foams well. It is creamy and very soothing to ones skin.
Susan Brown's Baby Natural Skin Care for Baby and Mom has many skin care products available to purchase. My package had a lot of samples that came along with the shampoo and body wash.

I received for review:
Sensitive Baby Foaming Shampoo & Body Wash
All Purpose Botanical Gelée (sample alternative to petroleum jelly)
Lotion-to-Powder (sample)
Sensitive Baby Nourishing Lotion (sample)
Moisturizing Hand sanitizer (sample)
Diaper Therapy Cream (sample)
Just for Mom Stretch Therapy Warming Masque (sample)

What product did I like the most? The All Purpose Botanical Gelée became my immediate favorite. I actually used the entire sample over this week. I used it every night before bed on my dry itchy hands. I will be buying this product in the future. I did not try the hand sanitizer as I am a soap and water kind of gal. I did try the Lotion_to_Powder. This is a great product. I do not like applying powder to my grandchildren even though it does help with prickly heat. Dusting powders irritate my breathing. The Lotion-to-Powder really was nice to apply and there was no dusty particles in the air. We have not had to try the Diaper Therapy Cream yet. I am sure it will be very useful when the new baby arrives. I will let you know what I think of it in the near future. That also goes for the Just for Mom stretch Therapy Warming Masque. When my daughter starts getting stretch marks as the baby grows I am sure she will be happy to try this product. 

What do I like about the products? They are made in USA, They contain no animal products, and used no animal testing.
What did I not like about the products? I really can't think of anything.

To learn more about these awesome skin care products visit Susan Brown's Baby.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
