Sweetbottoms Baby Boutique
I'm so thankful to join up with Sweetbottoms Boutique on Purposeful Homemaking again for another review and giveaway! I love, love, love all the goodies that can be found in this little one-stop baby and Momma boutique!
Some of my favorite items that I have personally used are their cloth diapers (HUGE variety), alcohol free hand sanitizers (I like both the personal size for my purse and the larger size for the car!) and the Gypsy Mama Water Wrap Baby Carrier I got to review for this event.
At Sweetbottoms Baby Boutique you'll find things like natural teethers, feeding essentials, baby carriers, nursing essentials and more! But, really, you need to check out their site to see all the wonderful goodies that they have!
And want to know what the best part is? (because this is sometimes a deterrent to me ordering online...
All US orders and select Canada orders qualify for free shipping!
I have ordered from this company before and was very happy with my products, received them in a timely manner and didn't feel bad about ordering online because of the free shipping.
But, now, let me tell you about the product I reviewed for the Summer Celebration Event!
One day, I was browsing through the Sweetbottoms site and came across THIS: A baby carrier designed for the water! I was incredibly excited when I found out I had the opportunity to review it!
I had never seen a water carrier before but had thought many times that I wish I could have taken my Ergo in the pool with me so I could hold my youngest and have more hands and eyes free for watching the other two. (Which, I'd like to put in a non-paid plug for ISR--Infant Swimming Resource--it's an amazing lifesaving aquatics program that our children have all completed and is definitely something for you to consider if you have little ones!)
A wrap like this is great if you have several children and want to keep your youngest one close to you while the others play.
I am new to the "wrap world" with this being my first wrap to use. However, for the position above, I found it to be very easy to do--even for my directionally challenged mind!
This water wrap is designed for babies from full term birth to 25 pounds. Our youngest is actually at the 27 pound mark but he still fit great and I didn't find him to be too heavy, especially with the lightweight feel when we were in the water. As you can tell from the picture below, he is having a good time!
Some great features about this wrap is that it is made from very fast-drying fabric which is also hypoallergenic. It is lightweight (which makes keeping it in the beach bag easy!) and cool so it works great as an everyday wrap if you live in a hotter area (as recommended to me by a Facebook reader who also loves this wrap!)
AND, it has a UPF of 45 to help prevent sunburn and minimize sunscreen use, especially if you have a little one 6 months and under.
I used our Ergo Baby Carrier a TON with our youngest (who also happened to be the first child that I "wore" much--and by the way LOVED it!), but a nice dark wrap like this would be great as a more elegant look if you're out in the evening or for a special event rather than a more bulky carrier.
This wrap retails for $64 and comes with a detailed instruction sheet (complete with pictures) on how to use it.
