About Babilayers

Like many working moms, I am constantly looking for ways to make life easier at home. After the birth of my second child, Trey, life at home became busier than ever.
With our new addition to the family, there was no shortage of friends and family wanting to visit to see our new baby. I was worried that baby Trey’s skin might be sensitive to fabrics that people were wearing. I was also concerned about the cleanliness of people’s clothes. Bottom line was that I didn’t want Trey exposed to zippers, germs, allergens, or perfume found on the clothes of the person carrying him.
Unlike my first child, I found Trey frequently spitting up shortly after breast feeding. My husband and I found ourselves constantly changing our clothes, sometimes as much as 10 times in one day. Burp cloths didn’t help much because they constantly would fall off or rarely would help in protecting our clothes from the spontaneous spit up, drool, or vomit.
I needed ‘something’ to protect my baby’s health and skin, while at the same time protect the clothing of whoever was carrying him. That ‘something’ is BabiLayers.”Claire Hsu Gantan,
owner and founder of BabiLayers

What is “Babilayers“?
BabiLayers is an innovative, patent pending, wearable layer of protection designed for today’s modern caregiver. Layers protect your baby from exposure to allergens or germs we all carry on our clothes. It also protects you from baby’s spontaneous drool, spit-up, and throw up.

Made from 100% soft organic cotton with an “extra” layer designed for multiple uses while you’re on the go. Babilayers has a neckline made with soft elastic and can easily be put on and taken off using one hand. A natural coconut button is sewn on the back to easily secure the “extra” layer. Not to mention they come in very cute patterns!

BabiLayers is proudly made in USA. Their organic fabrics and natural dyes are sourced and printed in USA and are compliant with GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standards).

My Thoughts!At first glance I knew that Babilayers would be the perfect Baby Shower gift! I thought about the days when our twins were newborns, family was always asking if they could hold the twins…I hated it, I didn’t know what kind of nasty stuff was on their clothing, plus don’t get me started on the family and friends who smoke, we don’t smoke and would prefer our children not to be surrounded by that. I wish I would have had Babilayers…or 2…or 3!!

Now that our twins are older, I really like the Babilayer to protect me…I can’t tell you how many times we are just to head out the door all ready to go when…”Honey! I have to go change, I just got thrown up on”
My adorable Babilayers in Bubbly came at the perfect time, right in the middle of a spring time cold…horrible cough, snot every where, up set tummies…you name it. The Babilayers is awesome. Both my husbands work clothes and my clothes have been perfectly protected!

Yesterday afternoon my little girl fell asleep on me, she wasn’t feeling very good. She not only drooled in her sleep, but her poor little nose was running…it has been so much that it has even bled a little, I hate having a sick baby:( With the Babilayers she was able to cuddle up close to Mama with her face on a ultra soft fabric, and all her ickies landed on the Babilayers not me! Another aspect of the Babilayers that I love is that it’s Organic Cotton! My kiddos all have ultra sensitive skin that becomes VERY irritated when soap is left in fabric, and certain types of fabric…the sometimes end up with hives on their cheeks when they fall asleep on Mama or Daddy. Not so with the Babilayers!!! My six year old son even liked cuddling up to the Babilayers because of how soft it is!! 🙂
All and All this is a wonderful thing to have! I have a few friends that have a new baby and even more who are expecting…even a few are expecting twins, I will for sure be suggesting they get their hands on a few Babilayers!!
I would like to give a Special Thank You to Babilayers for letting me try out and share their fantastic product! Shonte was wonderful to work with and always there! She did a great job, Above and beyond! Thank You Shonte!

Earth Mama Angel Baby Review and Giveaway!!

Earth Mama Angel Baby {Review & Giveaway}

giveaway ends 8/2/10

Recently I was thrilled to be given the exciting opportunity to
review three of Earth Mama Angel Baby‘s wonderful baby products!

Angel Baby® Shampoo & Body Wash, and Angel Baby® Lotion, are some of the bestbaby products I have ever used! I’d love to tell you about them!

The day I received my Earth Mama Angel Baby Package in the mail, my daughter had developed a horrible diaper rash. She has never had anything like it, and rarely ever even has a rash thanks to cloth diapers:) I used the Angel Baby® Bottom Balm with every diaper change (a total of 3 after the mail came) until bed. At the bed time diaper change I was shocked at how well the Angel Baby® Bottom Balm had worked!! With in about 24 hrs her rash was 100% GONE!! The next day her twin brother developed the same rash, that’s when I realized it was do to detergent build up in their diapers. His rash was gone even faster!!! Oh, and did I mention that it is 100% safe to use with cloth diapers!! Yay!
Angel Baby® Bottom Balm is now a MUST HAVE in our house!!


Mama wants you to know:

Your new angel’s skin – is anything softer? Is anything sweeter? Hey! What’s that crud, and that rash, and those scrapes? Being a baby is a hard business, from diaper rash to cradle cap to tiny fingernail scratches, and then bangs and scrapes galore as they begin to explore. Clinically tested Angel Baby® Bottom Balm has got her back, his bottom, mama’s dry skin, papa’s razor burn and gazillions of other owies that come your family’s way.
Our #1 best selling salve is clinically tested and safely battles existing diaper rash and protects against flare ups. It also soothes itchy cradle cap, bug bites, scrapes, chicken pox, minor rashes, burns and, yes, more scrapes.
Allergy tested, non-irritating Angel Baby® Bottom Balm is vegan (no beeswax!) and the only balm made with organic olive oil infused with a proprietary blend of naturally antibacterial and antifungal organic herbs, shea butter and pure essential oils. No wonder it’s often referred to as Mama’s miracle balm. And Angel Baby® Bottom Balm is an Editor’s Pick in the diaper cream category of Natural Solutions’ 2009 Beauty With a Conscience Awards!
My little ones are all plagued with horrible dry skin. I hate it, they hate. After they were all out of the bath I rubbed some of the Angel Baby® Lotion on our oldest who has very bad eczema so lotion tends to burn his skin, but not so with Angel Baby® Lotion. He loved it and it smells great, not too overwhelming like so many other lotions are. The twins were next…It was so easy to rub Angel Baby® Lotion on them. The Angel Baby® Lotion is very thin and creamy so it rubs in ultra fast. Even as they were crawling off I was rubbing it on them…try doing that with so many of the sticky baby lotions out there.
Mama wants you to know:

Clinically tested, gentle Angel Baby® Lotion was formulated with extra care, because Mama knows that so much of what you put on your baby can be absorbed through the body’s largest organ – the skin! The perfect lotion for baby, 100% naturally preserved with no artificial dyes or fragrances – that heavenly scent is all-natural, baby! Angel Baby® Lotion is cruelty free, toxin-free and certified vegan. Made with organic rooibos, soothing to eczema, skin allergies and diaper rash.
Angel Baby® Lotion is easily rubbed into squirmy baby skin, and smells so naturally good you’ll have to nibble on an adorable little tootsie or two! It’s pure, organic lotion for your pure, organic baby!
100% Organically Preserved
Clinically tested, Hypoallergenic
No Artificial Fragrances or Dyes
Cruelty-Free
Toxin-Free
Certified Vegan

Our Children LOVE bath time, for the most part. All three love playing and splashing! Likewise all three HATE getting their hair washed. The fact that Angel Baby® Shampoo & Body Wash is a 2 in 1 is just icing on the cake for us! When its time to wash it goes so fast with Angel Baby® Shampoo & Body Wash and they can all get back to splashing each other! Our oldest has very thick hair, so usually it takes a long time to rinse the shampoo out of his hair. I was so pleased when I went to rinse out the Angel Baby® Shampoo & Body Wash and it ALL rinsed the first time! He loved it too. The Angel Baby® Shampoo & Body Wash rinses off very quickly, which is perfect with two wiggly babies!! What I love about Angel Baby® Shampoo & Body Wash is that there is no icky soapy residue after the children were rinsed, they were just clean! Plus it smells great! The fact that it is a foam was a big hit with our oldest! One of my most favorite parts of the Angel Baby® Shampoo & Body Wash is that it is parabens free. I am very allergic to parabens and I don’t let anything that contains parabens touch my 3 precious babies!!!

Mama wants you to know:

This is not a “no-tear” formula, so please use extra care around your angel baby’s eyes! The ingenious self-foaming bottle makes sure the pure castile soap stays just where you want it. If you purchase a refill size, please make sure to use one of the self-foaming bottles to properly dispense and foam your Angel Baby® Shampoo & Body Wash. Angel Baby® Shampoo & Body Wash contains no petrochemical, synthetic surfactants, foaming agents or toxins of any kind. That means no sodium laureth sulfate, cocoamidylpropyl betaine, Quaternium-15, 1,4-Dioxane, formaldehyde or phthalates.USDA Certified Made With Organic Ingredients No 1,4-Dioxane, formaldehyde, or phthalates No sodium lauryl sulfate, cocomidopropyl betaine or other syntheticsurfactants No artificial preservatives (parabens, phenoxyethanol, etc)How does someone so angelic, sweet and pure get so dirty? All the breast milk mostly going in, and then, of course, going out! And once the food experimentation and crawling starts, the battle with grime really begins.You need a safe, effective soap that won’t hurt your baby’s sensitive skin.USDA Certified Made with Organic Ingredients, Angel Baby® Shampoo & Body Wash is a gentle, real castile soap – not a harsh detergent. With soothing organic calendula, zero toxins and no artificial fragrance, just a sweet, light natural scent from pure organic Vanilla and organic Sweet orange essential oils. It’s the perfectly safe baby shampoo, body wash, or hand soap for your entire family.
