Researched and Approved Products

Buying something new is not easy in my household.  I thoroughly research everything I bring into my home before each purchase.  I check toxicity, country of origin, safety ratings and others.  Hours, sometimes days of online research, multiple email exchanges with the company; actually speaking with the manufacturers and even sending samples for lab testing.  Sometimes, I have to compromise, but most of the time there are better options out there.  It takes a lot of time to find those…  Consider using my affiliate links – the price is the same to you but I earn a small commission that helps pay for maintenance of this blog.

    Hi, thanks for your post about Iron supplemental. The products that were recommended, I was wondering if you can give me the dosage I would give to my 15 month old baby

    Hi- Do you have a recommendation for effective stain remover for baby clothes that is nontoxic? My toddler started painting activities at day care and the clothing stains won’t come out. Please help! Thanks so much!

      Hi Jenny,

      My go-to is Better Life dish soap. Put a few drops directly on the stain and gently rub in right after school. We wash with the rest of the laundry once or twice a week. A quick note, be careful with reds and other deep/rich colors, they may or may not bleed when treated with dish soap, so it may be wise to wash separately. My children are dressed in Hanna Anderson clothing (I dont miss a 40% off sale!) and we have never had a problem with bleeding colors, but depending on the brand, it may or may not be an issue.

      If the stain if from berries, blueberries, strawberries or such, pour boiling water on the stain and watch it disapear. It really works!
