You may have heard a lot lately about Bisphenol-A, a hormone-disrupting chemical that is shown to leach from baby bottles that are made of Polycarbonate (95% of the bottles on the market), and is considered potentially harmful to babies. A new company, BornFree™, offers baby bottles made of a new, safe, honey-colored plastic called Polyamide (PA) that is free of Bisphenol-A. I was happy to find a healthier alternative and wanted to pass it on to you.

As a mom with 2 young kids, i do use baggies quite often, i always feel guilty when i put them in the trash. Not anymore, with Bag-E-Wash, a first-of-its-kind dishwasher accessory, i can easily clean and reuse all these baggies. I tried it and it works.
Jeannie, the mom-inventor, shared a story with me. A kindergarten teacher was concerned about all the baggies kids were bringing to school for their lunches and then just throwing them away. He collected them for a month. At the end of the month he had collected 400 bags. Four hundred bags from one classroom (of probably about 25 children) for one month. Unreal!
Help save the planet, one baggie at a time. Visit Bag-E-Wash, click on Zoë b's special on their homepage and you will get 4 Bag-E-Wash for the price of 3. Offer ends on May 31st.

NUI Organics baby blankets top my list of great baby gifts. The blankets are crafted from the finest wool in the world - 100% certified organic New Zealand Merino. No nasty dyes or bleaches are used, just natural colors. For instance, the rich deep cocoa in the Grid blanket pictured here is actually from a black sheep.
And NUI Organics blankets are for life. Unlike some other products for kids, they're not disposable. You won't need three by the time your child is a one-year old. In fact, one blanket will last for your next three children. That's if baby number one will ever give it up, of course.

Did you know it takes 1/3 lb of chemicals to produce one conventional cotton t-shirt? That's why I was thrilled to discover Blirt--not only are their t-shirts cute and uniquely clever, but each is made from 100% organic cotton, using only low-impact dyes.
Blirt hopes to introduce kids to the playfulness of the English language, and their primary canvas of expression is the t-shirt. Their first line features offbeat interpretations of familiar figures of speech. (Pictured here is the "Fish Out Of Water" t-shirt.) Since Blirt believes that it's never too early to learn wordplay, their shirts run from infant to youth sizes. All are unisex in cut and color. A booklet even accompanies each shirt and provides derivations and definitions.
