Day 4: Earth Mama Angel Baby {giveaway}

Ready for Baby VIrtual Baby Shower

Third time’s the charm…right?

I tried nursing both of my girls when they were infants.  I failed miserably with Abbi due to an unfortunate combination of being a new mom and having an unplanned C-section.  I wish I had reached out more for help but, sadly, just gave up trying and decided to pump for the first few months instead.  With Zoe, again I failed.  I tried in the hospital and had much more encouragement and support this time around, but, when we got home, things got tough and I gave up again.

This time, I’m not going to give up so easily.  I feel more confident as a mom this time around and have realized that I have an amazing wealth of knowledge around me, from the hospital lactation counselors to friends & bloggers.

As I’ve been spending time reading up on some of the latest breastfeeding news, I came across some information that surprised me!  Lanolin, a product in many baby and nursing products, isn’t always safe for you or baby!  What?  How did I miss this?

Apparently you need to be careful with lanolin (a yellow waxy substance secreted by wool-bearing animals) because it may contain pesticides, like DDT, lindane, and diazinon.  Of course these pesticides can cause a number of health problems, especially in newborns.  So, this got me searching for other options, more natural options, for the cracked and sore nipples I know will occur while breastfeeding.  That’s when I found Earth Mama Angel Baby!

Earth Mama Angel Baby - Angel Baby

Earth Mama Angel Baby Organics has developed an extensive line of pregnancy, postpardum, breastfeeding, and baby “products that are 100% toxin-free, cruelty-free, vegan, and free from all artificial preservatives, fragrances and dyes.” The team behind Earth Mama Angel Baby has combined their years and knowledge as moms/dads, nurses, doulas, and childbirth educators to create products to help sooth every stage of pregnancy, from morning sickness to even C-section recovery (I wish I had known about those products 5 years ago!).

C-Mama Healing Salve

I was so excited to learn that Earth Mama Angel Baby Organics even offers a lanolin-free nipple cream to sooth my soon-to-be breastfeeding woes!  The Natural Nipple Butter, made with soothing organic calendula and non-sticky natural plant butters, not only protects cracked and sore nipples, but is also safe for babyno need to wash it off before nursing! That means one less thing I need to worry about!!!  YAY!

Natural Nipple Butter

Earth Mama Angel Baby also offers an amazing line of natural and safe baby products, including Angel Baby® Shampoo & Body Wash, Angel Baby® Lotion, and Angel Baby® Bottom Balm.  All of which I am planning on ordering before this baby graces us with his presence!

While Earth Mama Angel Baby definitely won me over with the quality and care they put into each of their products (not to mention their affordable prices), it is their dedication to supporting moms that continues to impress me.  Their website provides an amazing amount of knowledge and links, including an entire section that is dedicated to helping parents who are grieving the loss of a baby — Baby Loss Comfort.

Also, breastfeeding moms, if you are looking for more information on herbs, breastfeeding tips and advice, you can now download the EMAB’s A Comprehensive Guide to Herbs and Breastfeeding…for FREE!
