Sunday Funday Giveaway: Baltic Amber Children’s Necklace

Sunday, November 11th, 2012

Surely you have seen those adorable, earthy-looking, necklaces that many cloth-diapering, breastfeeding, and babywearing mamas use? Ever wonder what the scoop is on those? They are actually necklaces made from Baltic Amber.

What is Baltic Amber? It’s a fossilized tree resin that has a high concentration of succinic acid. Okay, well now you are probably wondering what is succinic acid? It’s a powerful anti-oxidant that can protect and heal our body. It helps restore energy, provide pain relief, reduce inflammation, and maintain overall wellness.

Baltic Amber has shown to be effective in providing comfort to teething babies; although the necklace doesn’t actually go into baby’s mouth. Rather by wearing the necklace, the succinic acid gets absorbed into the skin through contact. Some parents are concerned about the safety of amber teething necklaces. While adult supervision while baby wears necklace is strongly recommended, the necklaces are designed with two key safety features:

  • The thread is knotted after each bead so if the strand should break, loose beads will not scatter everywhere
  • The clasp is designed and tested to release if excessive force is applied to the necklace.

Would you like to win a Baltic Amber Necklace for your little one? Enter this week’s giveaway below! Winner will be announced on Sunday, November 18. Winner will be notified via email and is asked to respond within 48 hours to claim their prize.

Good luck mamas!

Sunday, November 4th, 2012

If you are a parent of little ones, chances are you are constantly having to pack food for your kiddos whenever you go places such as the park, the zoo, or the museum. Plastic baggies are costly and create a lot of waste. Plastic containers leach yucky toxins into the environment and into your food. ECOlunchbox offers an awesome alternative that is both eco-friendly and economical. They are completely PBA free and made from lead-free, food-safe stainless steel.

The Three in One lunchbox comes with 3 separate rectangular containers. This is a perfect design for little ones who often prefer their foods not to touch. The the lunch box (when closed) measures 4 inches wide, 5 1/2 inches long and 2 3/4 inches high. The bottom layer is 1 inch deep and is designed to fit a sandwich/bread slices. The top layer is 1 1/2 inches deep and fits cut snacks or small side dishes. The small inner box, holds up to a 1/2 cup of wet foods, is good for applesauce, cut fruit or salads. However because no plastic is used in the design the pressure fitting stainless steel lid is not 100% leak-proof.

Winner will be announced on Sunday, November 11. Winner will be notified via email and is asked to respond within 48 hours to claim their prize.
