Have you ever heard of someone referred to as “crunchy”?? No, it’s not a cannibalistic term! The term “crunchy granola” is similar to a “hippie” 30 years ago. Those of us that eat organic, use botanical cleaning, bath and body products, cloth diapering, co-sleeping, attachment parenting, etc are all non-standard things that put you in the “crunchy” group!
Being crunchy myself, I compiled a list of must-haves that I find essential to my way of living…
Magic Bumpers are firm polyurethane foam wedges that are designed to go under the fitted sheet as a safer and easier alternative to traditional hard bed rails that slip under the mattress. The foam has a gripy non-slip surface that stays in place when under a fitted sheet. The bumpers are also very lightweight which makes handling and travel much easier.
I absolutely LOVE Magic Bumpers and highly recommend them to anyone in need of this type of product. Great for co-sleeping especially, but also ideal for any size mattress or sleeping situation. Easy to use, affordable and versatile. I know you’ll love them!

Vaska Botanical Laundry Products
Get your clothes sparkling clean with Vaska, an all natural botanically based laundry care line. The Vaska formula uses real herbs to clean effectively without the use of harsh chemicals which can cause rashes and irritation on sensitive skin.
Both my kids have super sensitive skin and I’ve tried numerous detergents trying to find one that actually gets my clothes clean but doesn’t cause rashes and irritation on my kids skin. I was happy to try Vaska products to see how well they work. I’m happy to report that Vaska is pretty amazing.

Ergo Baby Carriers
I have two children – a 4 year old girl and a 11 month old little boy. I’ve tried at least a dozen different baby carriers in the past 4 years and my favorite to-date is without a doubt the ERGO baby carrier. This carrier is just gorgeous! Not only is this a super fashionable baby carrier, it’s convenient, easy to use and comfortable.
It’s so easy to adjust that I can go from wearing my little guy to my husband wearing our big girl! My son is totally comfortable in it, for literally hours. He’s so happy and peaceful as long as he’s strapped on to Mama! Nursing is easy with the Ergo too. I am so happy I got to review the Ergo baby carrier as it has quickly become my favorite thing.
