A handy parent’s guide that turns professional language development into child’s play

Every new parent waits expectantly for their child’s first words. But if this milestone is late to arrive, they quickly become concerned. Luckily, Talking with Your Toddler contains speech language techniques that anxious parents can use to encourage late talkers to begin verbalizing. Based on proven speech therapy techniques, the 50 activities in this book encourage and expand language while simultaneously providing kids with endless entertainment. These educational exercises can be incorporated seamlessly into typical daily routines. From naming every clothing piece when getting dressed to exclaiming “pop!” when popping bubbles during playtime, these simple lessons make talking fun. The book includes step-by-step directions and detailed worksheets to ensure that the techniques work in an easy-to-follow, unintimidating way.

Paperback, 120 pages, Ulysses Press

This new title from Ulysses Press is targeted for parents of children ages 2 to 5. Full of helpful information, advice, and encouragement, I would recommend it to new parents and to parents of a little one (ages 2-5) with a speech concern. There is a lot of common sense reading and ideas already thought of. It had some needed reminders and new activities. A quick read.

Every Christina Moss Naturals® product nurtures naturally useful skin by nourishing the body’s largest organ with safe, effective, natural ingredients. never, ever includes toxic or potentially harmful ingredients, puts the environment firstreflects a minimalist mentality.

 

Some comments on a few of the Christina Moss Naturals products:

Product Details

This face wash is concentrated, so a little goes a long way. It is good for all skin types. I am insanely picky about face care products!- so I’m still deciding on this one. In a similar bottle is the moisturizer. While it is fragrance free, the last ingredient, anise, is very detectable. Unique scent to any skin care I’ve used. I’ve used this moisturizer on my little one.

Product Details

Shampoo had a big lather. Not a good fit for my hair. It felt clean but didn’t feel nourished. Found it made my hair tangled.

Product Details

Love peppermint in my lip balm. Great for all in the family – It’s exactly what everyone needs for all seasons.

Product Details

No one can get a grip on this super slippery soap. Doesn’t lather much but cleans nicely. Use carefully around eyes.

Christina Moss Naturals is CRUELTY FREE- thank you!

All Good Products

All Good is a lifestyle brand with a clear vision: to live and inspire others to live in balance with nature. We make organic body care products because we want you to feel amazing from the soothing natural benefits of botanical ingredients.

All Good Deodorant Cedarwood & Spruce - 2.5 oz Stick

All Good deodorants use naturally occurring enzymes and essential oils to fight odor causing bacteria. Arrowroot powder absorbs moisture and dries underarms, while aloe vera and our homegrown calendula soothe sensitive skin. Our promise is that nothing in these causes harm: all good ingredients, always. Available in Unscented, Tea Tree & Basil, Cedarwood & Spruce, Rose Geranium & Jasmine.

In a stick form, this one worked for me. Natural. Effective. And smells Good. Arrowroot powder is said to absorb moisture and keep underarms dry and I found it to do just that. I thought the scent super nice. (Cedarwood! Spruce!) I bet the Tea Tree/Basil and Rose Geranium/Jasmine are equally nice.

This deodorant also measures up at EWG’s Skin Deep database. I did look up the first ingredient (Propanediol) and found it to be safe (from what I can determine). truthinaging.com/ingredients/propanediol

Captain Blankenship

‘beauty wild with nature’. We are a small, women-run company in the Hudson River Valley that makes products that are luxurious and honest. We formulate our products with only organic and wild-harvested ingredients that are domestically grown when possible. We never use synthetic preservatives, parabens, sulfates or “fragrance.” We use recyclable and reusable glass packaging, making a positive environmental impact. We test on ourselves and friends and never on animals. We believe in transparency in every aspect of our line.

Lots of great natural products. Easy enough said. And let me make this review a highlight for two of my favorites! 

LIME & VETIVER CREAM DEODORANT 

A great product to start the day off right. I will continue to use and hope this one ends my search for a natural deodorant. The scent however I’m not sure about. Vetiver? It’s a “smoky” essential oil and I’m not crazy about it for topical use. (as oppose to diffusing) Tons of essential oil combos could be used and maybe they will add to their line and offer more choices. 

(Organic Arrowroot Powder helps keep you dry, Aluminum Free Baking Soda helps neutralize odor, Organic Hops Extract fights against bacteria, Organic Coconut Oil keeps you moisturized, Organic Lime, Lemongrass and Vetiver Essential Oils keep you smelling fresh.) Why switch to natural deodorants? use this link for a good answer.

AVOCADO & PEPPERMINT HAND, CUTICLE & FOOT BALM

And this product is the perfect way to end the day. A good moisture treatment for dry heels, it is a minty, refreshing treat at the end of the day for my tired feet. Peppermint always smells good to me.

(Organic Avocado Oil deeply penetrates dry skin and improves texture, Organic Shea Butter is naturally high in vitamins and minerals and intensely moisturizes skin, Organic Calendula Extract helps heal cracked skin, Organic Cocoa Butter, rich in Vitamin E, nourishes skin and smells like chocolate, Organic Rosehip Seed Oil, naturally high in Vitamin C, hydrates thirsty skin, Wildharvested Myrhh Essential Oil softens and repairs dry skin and cuticles.)

UV Travel Umbrella

This UV blocking sun umbrella is great because you always have instant shade with you wherever you go! Fits perfectly in a purse or in the glove compartment of a car. And, best of all, the versatile Sun Travel Umbrella keeps you cool under the sun and dry when it rains.

A cute and compact sun umbrella. It’s a great sun block that keeps you cooler, or dryer if need be. A great travel companion for wherever umbrellas are allowed. Yes, I know if’s officially fall, but maybe we can hold on to summer a little longer. (think like a balloonist – only use your  UV umbrella in winds less than 10 knots)

auto open and close. better UV protection than a regular rain umbrella.

sturdy but lightweight. compact. smart. fun:)

SNUZ SLEEP

Advertised as a pillow that is ideal for any sleeping position, here’s the rundown

 

If you’re a back sleeper, the SNUZ Pillow’s unique, hourglass design perfectly fits, cradles and supports the curve of your neck and the back of your head…

If you’re a side sleeper, the SNUZ Pillow provides ideal head support & neck and spinal alignment. And the gentle dip in the middle of the pillow prevents pressure on your ear created by the crown of regular pillows…

If you’re a stomach sleeper, the cavity on the bottom creates the perfect channel for your arm, while still offering neck and spinal alignment and reduced pressure on your ear.

ALL SNÜZ PILLOWS

It’s dreamy! It’s thick but not hard & it’s soft yet supportive. I find it easy to sleep on in all positions and I have had less neck discomfort waking up with this pillow. Support is not so much about firmness as it is about maintaining a proper position. I think that’s why this pillow works. It doesn’t prop my head up but lets my neck and shoulder muscles relax. A great back-to-school recommendation for the whole family.

other Snuz facts:

outside is 300-thread count cotton

filled with ultra-light, super-durable, hypoallergenic fibers

open mesh venting on the sides will help keep it cool and comfortable

machine washable

made in USA
