The sun has been out around these parts and that means we have been out a lot too. Everywhere I go I see beautiful bellies and adorable squishy newborns. There is something about this time of year that is just so perfect to think about babies- the freshness of Spring, the songs of the birds in the blooming trees, the rebirth of life held dormant over winter months.
If you are an expecting mama, a new mama, or are simply at that stage in your life where all your friends and family are, and are concerned about choosing safe, non-toxic products for both mama and baby, then Maternitique is the place to look.
Tara Bloom is Maternitique’s founder and is a force to be reckoned with when choosing the brands she is willing to put her stamp of approval on.
Maternitique realizes just how precious the moments from pregnancy through motherhood are, and how important it is to provide the safest, most natural products possible during this time in your baby’s development. They also realize that the last thing many newly expectant mamas want to do is spend hours worrying over ingredient lists and research studies to find those products.
They stay up to date with the latest research on the thousands of toxic chemicals that affect growing bellies and developing babies.
They know which ingredients are best to avoid: reproductive toxins (phthalates, for example), carcinogens or teratogens (substances that cause or contribute to birth defects).
They ensure that any products containing herbs or nutritional supplements have been formulated with medical oversight and are recommended by midwives and doctors for safe use during pregnancy.
In short, Maternitique provides a wonderful shopping experience for people who do not want to worry over ingredient lists, products safety, or manufacturer ethics- all the worry and research has been done for you.
Maternitique sent one of their fabulous organic teething toys made by Keptin-Jr. Since I don’t have any teething babies anymore, I let a friend’s adorable baby girl give it a try.
As you can see, it was a huge hit! The body is so easy for little ones to be able to grasp and this little one never wanted to let hers go. Her mama loved that it was made from soft, organic cotton and wool that earned the Oko-Tex Standard 100 certification—the world’s leading eco-label for textiles.
Maternitique also generously sent a Keptin-Jr Organic Rattle for me to give away to one of my readers!
