Everything Birth

Everything Birth is an incredible business. As their logo says, they do have everything "from birth supplies to cloth diapers." As a birth junkie and doula myself, I loved browsing their homebirth supply kits and the wide variety of items for Moms and Babies, everything from pregnancy tests and menstrual care to cloth diapers and organic toys - everything in between too! One thing I thought was neat was the Midwife Cause of the Month - places where you can give money or supplies to help support moms, babies and childbirth locally and around the world.

Crystal, the mom behind Everything Birth is incredibly sweet and a mom to three children, all born at home. She is preparing to run the Boston Marathon raising money for the American Liver Foundation!

I had the privilege of trying out Garden Dreams Baby Bum Butter. We normally battle minor rashes from time to time, but of course, we have not had a single diaper rash since we received this Bum Butter. However, I was still able to try it out in other ways! More on that in a moment.

This itty bitty tub has gone a long way! My first thought was, "We will totally use that up in a heartbeat!" We received the tub on May 20th, as of July 4, more than half of the container remains full. In other words, a little bit goes a long way! And it's perfect for stashing in your bag (purse or diaper bag!)

The Baby Bum Butter does have a very light scent, but it doesn't linger. It is very light on your fingers and doesn't leave a greasy feeling behind.
Love the ingredient list with Olive Oil being the main ingredient - I wouldn't hesitate for a moment to use it with our cloth diapers. Like I said, we haven't battled a rash in the past 5 or so weeks since we received it, but I have it waiting for the moment I discover one!
What I was able to use it for: Bug Bites! I was thrilled to see that the Baby Bum Balm has a handful of uses, also including helping with scratches and skin irritations.
We have the worst little bugs in our back yard - we call them Demon Mosquitoes. They are itty bitty, black and gray, scary looking little creatures and they leave horrible bites all over us. I hate using "popular" bug sprays but nothing works (We have started using Off! Clip Ons and they help a little bit). Needless to say, we are always covered in little bites.

(Note: I tried taking pictures of the bug bites all over my legs before and after, but it always looked like I hadn't shaved in months, so we are skipping the close up leg shots) ;) With that being said, we use this for bug bites ALL the time now! The itch goes away almost immediately and the redness and bumps are gone with in a day or so - definitely better than anything we have tried before!

The Baby Bum Butter comes in 3 sizes: travel, 2oz. and 4oz. and prices range from $4.95 to $13.95.
