Through the various mommy blogs that I read, I discovered BALM! Baby. This is a family owned company located in the warm and sunny state of Hawaii. Earlier this year, I was having issues with G’s teething while nursing and was looking for some serious nipple care and a possible teething tincture. By this time, I was already using and loving BALM! Baby’s PITS! Natural Deodorant. In general, I love natural and wonderfully smelling products. Anything that is artificially scented is very difficult for my nose to process and I only find heaven when smelling scents such as essential oils and other organic ingredients. PITS! is made with the following organic ingredients: Shea Butter, Olive Oil infused with Calendula & Chamomile, Macadamia Nut Oil, Coconut Oil, Baking Soda, Arrow Root, Essential Oils: Tea Tree, Lavender, Orange.
Smell that?! Ahhh, it’s my armpit and it smells prey-ty good. While some would agree that they would prefer their armpits to not smell at all, I prefer to smell like a sweet, sweet garden (growing off of the shores of Hawaii) than an armpit that smells like chemically-enhanced-could-be-what-a-bouqet-of-flowers-might-smell-like armpit. That’s just me.
As I mentioned above, I do have a baby and showering every day is considered a luxury. When I use my PITS!, I am actually pretty confident the next day. So much so, at Kindermusic I lift my baby as high as I can possibly reach and secretly hope the other moms catch a whiff of my delightful Hawaii garden.
So, back to my search of a nipple soother that could get me through G’s teething episode, which I will point out was during his two month pacifier boycott. I contacted BALM! Baby through Facebook and Malena, the founder of BALM! Baby replied back to me immediately. She answered my questions and steered me towards the right products.
Hear that?! Ahhh, it’s my boobs saying THANK YOU! and you know what else? They also smell pret-ty good too! Nipple Soother! is a natural and organic treatment for your nipples while nursing. It is also safe for baby, which means baby can latch on without any cleaning prior. Nipple Soother! is made with: Olive Oil infused Calendula & Chamomile, Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter and Candelilla Wax. My husband saw me use it the other day, grabbed the jar, took a huge sniff and said, “YUM.” Now imagine him doing that with Lansinoh. Won’t happen.
Malena also sent me a sample of their BALM! Baby Diaper Balm. I’m sure you can guess what I am going to say next: Smells wonderful and it treated my baby’s cloth bum amazingly! We received this right when were testing G with solids and when he started to have a red bum, we realized he wasn’t quite ready. BALM! Baby’s Diaper Balm helped him get back to his normal chubby pink cheeks and quickly.
I can’t wait to order more and if we run into any more issues with G’s teething, we will for sure try out their teething tincture! BALM! Baby’s customer service is quick and they are willing to help you out with any questions that you may have. This is a great family owned company who truly pays attention to their company’s needs and their products are found throughout the US. Win, win in my book.
