It's summertime - and the children are restless. Even though mommy might prefer to stay inside where it is a blissful 68 degrees, my little munchkins are thrilled if we make it out the back door - even if they freak out when they see a sprinkler.
Whether we're looking for a backyard adventure or an epic trip to the zoo, I am usually worried about sun exposure. I want my kids to spend time outside, but I don't want to end up with anyone else being treated for burns - especially after our coffee disaster. I also don't want to slather my kids in harmful chemicals and toxins!

I'm more than a little bit concerned about the ingredients found in a lot of typical baby/toddler products and was happy to give BabyGanics a try. We are happy with what we've found so far - and I'm thrilled to share these products with you!
After Lincoln's coffee burn earlier this year, we have had to pay extra close attention to how much time he spends in the sun. His skin has healed, but is a lot more likely to burn without sunscreen. I was so relieved when we received this sunscreen! The pure mineral and non-chemical format of this 30+SPF lotion offers broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. It's a lotion, so it moisturizes too! It comes Pediatrician- and Dermatologist-tested and recommended and features NO Parabens, Sulfates, PABA, Phthalates, Nano-Particles, Retinyl Palmitate, Mineral Oil, Petrolatum, Artificial Colors, Synthetic Fragrance, Gluten, or Nuts (can we say wow?)! It can be purchased at BabiesRUs and Diapers.com.
Shoo Fly Bye: DEET Free Bug Spray
When we played in the sprinkler a couple weeks ago, I failed to use bug spray at all. And I paid for it. While the kids miraculously managed to come inside unscathed, I had a giant bite behind one knee and another on my stomach (thank you, baby who couldn't wait to nurse until we came in). This DEET free spray is made up of essential oils that frighten pesky insects away yet smell pleasant to humans. Peppermint, geranium, soybean, and citronella are a whole lot less toxic than a "normal" bug spray! You can find Shoo Fly Bye at Babies R Us, Buy Buy Baby, Target and Diapers.com.
