Here’s a few of my favorite ways to help people reduce the amount of toxins their little ones are exposed to. Toxins aren’t good for adults, but a child’s body is so much smaller that they can have a more detrimental affect on them.
We spend a lot of our lives on a mattress. Children can spend 12-18 hours a day on a mattress, and adults spend 6-9 hours per day on one. For years, I’ve been bothered by the fact that I am lying on and breathing in fumes from something that I wasn’t sure was actually safe for me. Sure enough, most mattresses aren’t safe.
I took the Strength Finders test several years ago. It helps you understand what your natural strengths are and how to work with them.

Well, I'm back in baby world. I just had a son, Aero, and he's 3 1/2 years younger than my other son, August. Needless to say, I've had a couple of years of no baby things, but now I've gotten back in the swing of things. I wanted to share my top 5 companies of where I purchase items for my children. Most of them are baby products, but a few of them also have products for older children as well.
A friend of mine a few months ago mentioned to me the amazing use of eggshell powder. I had never heard of it before. Basically, eggshells are an amazing source of calcium, and you can use them for all sorts of things...
