Jam Naturals teethers + friends are better, together

I know, I know. We totally already did a review on Jam Naturals chewelry. But we couldn’t help but post about Miah’s friend, Everly, enjoying her teething bracelet! We recently participated in a natural pageant last weekend (I know. I need to post about this and will soon!). Everly actually has a few state titles! Any who I wore the below Jam Naturals bracelet as I normally do when out with Miah. It’s a great distraction for diaper changes, boredom, and of course the teething.

Well, during the pageant I had Everly on my lap and she started playing with my bracelet. I took it off and let her teeth on it and play. She LOVED IT and considering that Miah is usually more drawn to my Jam Naturals necklace, I ended up just letting Everly keep it. She was having too much fun — even days later at daycare!

Too stinkin’ cute and Miah was happy to share. Besides, we ordered more (thanks to Jam Naturals being awesome) this week and will post about the new colors we picked!

Get your baby to jam on these teethers

I spotted Jam Naturals teething jewelry on Instagram and after buying other teething pieces, I really wanted to try these because they were more unique to what I've been wearing. I loved that they combined natural wood with fabric. Highlights:

  • All natural
  • Untreated wood
  • Organic cotton
  • No plastic or silicone
  • 100% safe for babies to chew on

For me, teething jewelry is a safe way to wear -- well -- jewelry. I love accessorizing and miss it when I am with my little owl, Miah. She has a bit too much fun trying to take off all my stuff in order to chew, of course, but also to yank off for her enjoyment! I needed something that was safe for her but also gave me SOME form of fashion when I wore it. I chose the Raven color scheme for our necklace and Ocean for the bracelet. When my package arrived it was bundled with care and sweetness.

But someone didn't get the memo that I was the one who was technically supposed to wear these goodies and that certain someone had a field day. She grabbed and marveled over each piece. And as far as the necklace, she likes to wear it WITH SUPERVISION. As with anything, I want to reiterate these necklaces are not to be handled by your little one unsupervised. We obviously like taking photos around here and this scenario lasted all of two minutes!

Miah also enjoys clanking the bracelet around because the wooden rings make sounds as they move around the beads or on surfaces. It is perfect to hand her during diaper changes. She usually just inspects it with intensity, taking note of all the shapes and movements it makes in her hand. And I get to actually accomplish the task! Also when she chews on it, I found that her reaction to the taste is more curious and unexpected. Not plastic-y!

And here's me ACTUALLY getting to wear this cute stuff!

Overall I enjoy this because I wanted to be sure I could mix things up. I'm not big on matchy-matchy so I opted for two contrasting color schemes. I liked that I had several options to choose from and the beads looked cool. Yea, I said cool. That's still an acceptable word, right? I'm old... Anyway, it is also super easy to clean -- just gently wipe with water and antibacterial soap and air dry. That's it! They are also really responsive on Instagram. Be sure to tell them I sent ya! 

Hello, clean mouth!

I wanted to give a short review on a toothpaste I am digging (so to speak) right now. I have been using this @helloproducts charcoal infused toothpaste for a little over a week and my mouth feels a lot more clean than with other fluoride-free pastes. I have made my own before (without charcoal) and loved it but I don’t always make the time to whip some up. I was surprised to find that it makes my mouth feel clean even after eating. And yes your mouth is black as night when you use it! Fun stuff. I stumbled across it at Target!

Eclectic and adorable clothing from Piccona

Our little owl, Miah, showed me around four months old what kind of special little spitfire she was going to be. We were so lucky to receive many cared-for and loved outfits and pieces of clothing from friends for her but we also wanted to start adding a few new items here and there.

As she has grown her personality, attitude, and flair for always amazing me started to call for clothing items that complimented her little soul. I did a lot of searching and came across an online boutique called Piccona. As their website says, the New York-based company is a "curated collection of the cutest baby apparel" from all over the world. We were thrilled to try out some of their adorable outfits. 

  This was the outfit that did it for me! Simply sweet, bright, and lovely. Check out this best seller here: Yellow Flower Sleeveless Romper.

  When I first knew that Miah was coming into our lives, I wasn't sure if she was going to give me owl or fox vibes. Even though she's my little owl, she's certainly crazy like a fox! Get this sweet romper here:  Foxy Romper with Cross Back

The Foxy Romper really was one of my favorites for the wonderful fact that this was what she wore inspecting her first dried leaf.

Plus we got these super fast! Washing was easy too. I just toss them in a bra laundry bag with the rest of her clothes and hang up. The details on the floral romper at the top of the page are so pretty it preserves them perfectly! We will certainly shop all of their summer deals and I've already got my eye on their more cool-weather items. It's simply just too hot here in Texas for long sleeves yet! Thanks Piccona for providing another outlet for girls that offer more than just pink, frilly micro-fashions. 

Miah's favorite formula is gutes zeug!

Before you have a baby, good friends who have been there will tell you that you may need to prepare for not being able to breastfeed. Though I didn't want to face that scenario I knew that I needed to brace myself for it.

When it did happen to me, and then later giving up pumping before Miah was six months old, I was comforted that we at least chose the right formula for her. A friend of mine told me early on about Lebenswert Bio and I began ordering it from Organic Start. Even after I was no longer giving her what I could give of myself, I knew she would still thrive, be strong and clever, healthy, and full of life. Now at almost eight months Miah is a little spitfire and loves this product.

I shopped around and wholeheartedly supported Organic Start before starting this website. Because Lebenswert is a German product, finding a US distributor I trusted was important so that we could get our shipments in a timely manner. Miah will soon be approaching Stage 3 and we plan to continue to order organic and grassfed products from them. We always get our formula on time with personalized "thank you's" and sometimes samples of other goodies. Not only that but there are royalty points for money off your order and emailed updates about products -- without constantly bugging your inbox!

As I've stated, I was a customer before becoming an affiliate so If you order let me know what you think!
