Finally! A great organic baby shampoo

by Shannon on July 2, 2012

Oy! I have been on the hunt for months for a great, organic baby shampoo that is fragrance free and safe for my daughter. I’ve also been looking for a shampoo that wasn’t full of eye desensitizers or numbing agents like PEG (also an identified carcinogen). I love that it’s fragrance free and is packaged […]

Ugh! I just did this with my daughter today. I never in a million years thought this would be dangerous…just fun! After reading this article and watching the video, I’ll be sure not to do this again or to make sure I hold her legs carefully in my lap together, free from any snag obstacles. […]

Please keep your sick kids at home

by Shannon on August 3, 2011
