Why I won’t recommend this carrier.

About a year ago I was sent a carrier to try and review. I never published a review, because I didn’t want to bring it to the attention of my audience.

Tree Hugger Cloth Pads GIVEAWAY!

If you’re not yet a convert to reusables… Do some math. Each cloth pad will replace up to 200 disposables in it’s lifespan. Hang on. That’s serious. Having made the switch some time back, I’m a cloth … devotee doesn’t sound quite right, but maybe we could go with “embracer”. No chemical odor, a shorter cycle, environmentally friendly and MUCH friendlier to your wallet- why...

With a business motto of ‘movement and balance’, you know that Danish designed, Flensted mobiles aren’t going to disappoint. I’ve been coveting this phenomenally beautiful masterpiece for some time and the Niels Bohr atomic mobile is absolute perfection.
