Mail Delivery: New Arrivals (and Coupon Code)

I've been fortunate that I was able to learn about and try multiple of's products in the past (see my Sprout Foods Baby Food review or my giveaway for a thinkbaby stainless feeding set) and most recently, I was happy about the great discount that SproutBaby ran for Cyber Monday. I spent quite a while over on their site trying to decide what to purchase while taking advantage of that sale (and ended up really pleased with my selections)!

While I was there, I was amazed at all of the new items that SproutBaby has added since my last visit. As they have always focused on having exceptional products that are both healthy and environmentally-friendly, SproutBaby upholds extremely high standards and promises to ensure that everything they offer their customers has the safety of the family and the health of the planet in mind. Do you know a lot of other companies that do that? I don't.

When SproutBaby asked if I would like to review a few products from their new lines, I knew right away that they would be high quality, safe for my kids and good for the earth. It wasn't really a hard decision.

BabyGanics is a company founded by two clean-freak fathers who were determined to make products safe for the planet and safe for people. Sound like a good match for SproutBaby? I love the 2 ounce sample of The Grime Fighter All-Purpose Household Cleaner that I have been able to try, as it is the perfect thing for cleaning absolutely everywhere while still being safe for my children.

Made out of mainly plant-based ingredients, this All-Purpose Cleaner can be used on wood, marble, plastic - you name it. Available on for $6.99 for a 32 ounce bottle, for that price you'll be set to clean your entire house safely for quite a while to come and leave you with a clean conscience.

Episencial is the first company to develop all natural and sustainable skin care specifically for today's actively healthy families. Not only do I love that they are made with all natural ingredients, packaged in sustainable and recyclable materials, but they feature the artwork of Eric Carle and The Very Hungry Caterpillar. How cool is that?

Their 8 ounce bottle of Better Body Butter (which sells for $9.99 on SproutBaby) is perfect for keeping my family's skin soft and hydrated this time of year. Episencial has made this great Body Butter for ages 0 - 150, so I know that it is safe for all of us and I love knowing that it is boosting our skin's immunity while keeping us hydrated. This would be great on a newborn, as it is said to also prevent cradle cap and scaly skin, something both of my daughters suffered from as babies.

Having never heard of Nature Babycare before, I was surprised to learn that there is a biodegradable option of disposable diapers available. What a great concept! Consisting of 99% compostable material, these diapers are kind and gentle to your baby AND the environment and retail for $11.99 a pack (diaper count varies depending on size). I found them to work wonderfully, they fit Little Sister B well and she was able to move freely and not have a single leak.

Based in Sweden, Nature Babycare has worked for years to develop the greenest, eco-friendly, breathable, high-performance, chlorine-free diapers available on the market. I greatly appreciate SproutBaby not only carrying them, but for their stance on providing an atmosphere on their website that is free of judgment and restrictions when it comes to diapering choices. Whether you decide that cloth or disposable are right for your family, they will stand by you and aid in helping you make the healthiest choices possible.

The final item that SproutBaby sent me may possibly be my favorite, just because it is so simple and useful. CleanWell 1 ounce Hand Sanitizer Spray kills 99.99% of germs that can make you sick with one simple spritz, yet is is all-natural and alcohol-free. The ingredients are safe for kids, non-toxic and come from rapidly renewable resources that grow abundantly worldwide. Did I mention that it's amazingly easy to use as well?

Each bottle is conveniently small-sized to carry along with you anywhere and flip top is so easy to pop open with just on hand. I was never a big fan of dropping a big goop of traditional hand sanitizer on Big Sister E's hand and trying to get her to quickly rub it in before it slide through her fingers... and then making sure it was completely dry before she touched anything anyway.

With CleanWell, all it takes is one quick spray and I know that I'm safely keeping my family clean and healthy while banishing away the germs that are everywhere. The fact that it is gentle on our hands and has a fresh, clean scent are definitely added bonuses. One bottle retails at SproutBaby for only $4 and contains 200+ sprays.

If you haven't visited, you're missing out on all of their wonderful food, toys, baby products, mom products and much more! And if you haven't checked them out lately, you'll be surprised at all of the great new products that they have added. Be sure to enter the coupon code SBBL049 on your first SproutBaby order to receive an extra 15% discount!

Thanks,, for helping parents everywhere see that making healthy choices and making easy choices don't necessarily have to be separate ones. Not only do you work to help customers make smart, practical decisions for their children and family, you encourage them to communicate with each other and with you with their comments or questions and that's really wonderful.

Even though we don't communicate much more than a wave or a "How're you doing today?" when you come by, thanks for another great delivery, Mail Carrier. You worked hard for me in 2009 and I greatly appreciate it. Happy Holidays!

(Other than the four products that I was sent by SproutBaby, I was not provided with anything or enticed to do this review in any way. This review is solely my opinion of this company and these products and how much I have enjoyed trying them out with my family. SproutBaby rocks, what more can I say?)

These look like some great products. Baby cleaning supplies and green products should go hand in hand and I'm excited to try some of these. Thanks!
