I could not love this company more if I tried. Hello Toothpaste contains no artificial sweeteners, dyes, paragons, triclosan or microbeads. All their products are vegan and gluten free and their boxes are made from 100% recycled paper printed with soy based ink. Not only will you feel good about letting your kids use them, but you will feel awesome for supporting such an environmental friendly company. Hello Products are also against animal testing which is a huge requirement in our house.
Not only does Hello make amazing toothpaste for kids, but they also have oral care for adults. My husband loves the mojito mint while I favor the extra whitening (because, coffee stains). These are the perfect stocking stuffers for your kids/husband/brother/father. I’m a total sucker for cute packaging and I love the clean design on these tubes. They can be left out on my bathroom sink without being total eyesores.
Do you have any tip or tricks to make brushing easier? Confession: There have definitely been a few times where I have forgotten to brush Henry’s teeth. To remind us all, we bought this oversized toothbrush to keep in the bathroom as a constant reminder. I made this fun video so you can see how it has helped Henry become a better brusher!
Be sure to grab some Hello Toothpaste next time you’re at Target, Walmart or online at Amazon! Happy Friday, Friends!!
First, let’s talk about this amazing Coco & Kiwi diaper bag. I get so many compliments on this style. I’m a huge fan of monochrome and stripes. Not only is this bag stylish but it’s also so practical for mothers of multiples. It is huge on the inside with 9 different compartments, a changing pad, removable zipper pouch, stroller straps, and a long shoulder strap. Coco & Kiwi is restocking this bag on September 26 and the updated version will feature a backpack conversion which is genius. I’ve been using this bag daily for over 4 months now and it shows no signs of any wear of tear. It easily wipes clean and holds up so well.
Snacks/Drinks – This is a given. Kids love to eat, especially mine. As long as my kids are eating, I can pretty much get anything done that I need to. My bag is always full of pouches, raisins, puffs, veggie straws, juice boxes, sippy cups with water, and lollipops as a last resort. These organic ones are my favorite.
Thieves Spray – Made from Thieves essential oil and distilled water. I use this for everything even when I don’t have the kids with me. It’s a natural sanitizer that I spray on shopping carts, monkey bars, shared toys, public bathrooms etc. It also doubles as a general air freshener in case your mom van is smelling funky from old milk cups hidden under the seat 🙂
iPad – Have you ever tried going out to eat with kids at 6pm? Besides, Evelyn would probably die if she couldn’t watch Mickey Mouse.
Accessories – Evelyn always needs a blanket, pacifier, and a bow so people don’t think she’s a boy (which happens whenever she isn’t wearing something in her hair!) I keep these things and some small toys for both kids in my bag as well.
First Aid Kit – I use this kit which has everything we need in case of a park booboo or any of minor injuries. It’s super compact and includes over 50 different bandages, tweezers, burn & sting relief gel and more. For just over $10, do yourself a favor and get one for your pool bag, both cars and diaper bag. Kids and accidents go hand in hand! Moms to be: add several to your registry!
Miscellaneous – I have a small pouch that I keep toilet liners, tissues, chapstick, Tylenol, pens, cash & change, etc. You never know when your toddler will see a vending machine with 100 bouncy balls that he just has to have and sometimes you have to pick your battles! I also keep this cute scarf on hand in case I look down and realize I have toothpaste on my shirt (again). Did you know this is actually a nursing scarf? We are out of the nursing stage but I love how this scarf can transition easily into your wardrobe.
Miniature Bowling Set – This is such a fantastic game for the bigger kids (3 and up). Henry can play this for 30+ minutes at a time which helps me unload the dishwasher and tidy the living room before daddy gets home! The pins and ball come in their own muslin bag and are hand carved and waxed. This set would make an awesome baby shower gift and can be used as decor until children are old enough to play with it.
