My first Christmas as a new mom was quite different from holidays past.
We were just beginning to embrace a greener lifestyle. And we instinctively practiced Attachment Parenting without knowing it had its own name and a growing movement behind it. We spent most of that December at home with our 4-month old baby boy.
Holiday shopping was low on our priority list. But we were conscious of the gifts we chose for him. It was no simple task! Let’s be real… 10 years ago and with dial-up internet, online shopping wasn’t the ultimate time-saving option it is today.
So what’s got me feeling so reflective about baby gifts under the Christmas tree?
It started when Erin from Lullaby Organics emailed me about her Holi-Daily Deals event. My first thought was how much I would have LOVED this when my babies were little!! A trusted friend who does all the hard work and research for you… and then just shows up with adorable, healthy, and safe gift ideas — at amazing deals!
My second thought was how can I spread the word to every new mom (or mom-to-be) I know? That’s why I’m writing this post today and am also thrilled to be reviewing the final daily deal on December 6th.
Who Is Lullaby Organics?
If you’re not familiar with Lullaby Organics, the 12 Days of Deals event will be the perfect way to get to know them. Like most successful parent-owned businesses, they faced a challenge and found a way to share their solutions with other moms and dads. Their infant daughter suffered from chemical sensitivity to the point her lungs would nearly give out.
Research led them to find all the toxins found in conventional baby products – especially the sleeping environment. They carefully chose 100% organic materials for her co-sleeper mattress, sheets, blankets, mattress pad, baby carrier, diapers, and as much apparel as they could find. Just days after making these changes, their daughter began to breathe normally and thrive.
Lullaby Organics puts as much of a priority on your family’s health as their own. Erin only carries products by brands who share her values:
- reduce exposure to harmful chemicals, toxins and allergens
- promote safe and healthy working conditions
- minimize environmental impact
When you shop at Lullaby Organics, you’re not only supporting sustainable companies, at least 3% of your total purchase is donated to Healthy Child Healthy World, The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and Washington Toxics Coalition.
Now let’s get to the details of the event.
The 12 Days of Holi-Daily Deals Event: 11/25 – 12/6
- Each day for 12 days, starting Friday, 11/25, and running through Tuesday, 12/6, a different green blogger will post a review and giveaway from Lullaby Organics.
- In each day’s post, the blogger of the day will “REVEAL THE DEAL” for that day.
- Each deal might be on a single item or a collection of items, but when the deal of the day is sold out, that daily deal is over and there will be a different deal the next day!
I can’t list the “deals” here. I actually only know the one I’ll be reviewing for the final day of the event. You can click here to find the participating blogs so you’ll know where to go each day to find the deal and enter their giveaway.
Until then, I’ll share with you some of my favorite items Lullaby Organics offers.
How cute would these be in a Christmas photo? I first learned of Under the Nile back in my corporate apparel days. They’ve been a leader in organic cotton since the 90′s – doing great things for both the planet and human health.
Do you cringe every time you see a baby (yours or anyone’s) put plastic rattles and toys in his mouth? Given what we know now about toxins in plastic, natural materials like wood are the only way to go. These rattles come in a variety of nature-themed shapes.
Here’s your chance to send a message with the gifts you give. Toddlers and young children are too young to understand what’s happening to polar bears, but no matter what age, we’re naturally fascinated by them. The Believe collection by Dandelion inspires families to think about their impact on the planet & animals around us.
Little hands stay quite busy with things that nest inside each other or can be used to build. Toys like these help build creativity and encourage imaginative play much better than a battery-operated toy that does everything for them.
These cups have no BPA, PVC, phthalates, or external coatings, and they meet FDA food contact standards. Oh and they’re dishwasher safe too.
This silly, skinny kitty is the perfect stocking stuffer! It’s also from Under the Nile, so you can trust it’s the most sustainable, organic cotton around. Machine washable, totally adorable, and it’s only $14.
