Eco Mom Review and Giveaway!


Eco Mom is giving one of my readers a $15 gift certificate!

Their choices of baby and mother products are phenomenal.

Eco Mom wanted me to tell you about their great new program called EcoPass. This allows readers to purchase a $99 annual membership, which provides for a 15% discount on every order, as well as free shipping with no $50 minimum requirement. EcoPass pays for itself in as few as four orders and costs only $8.25 a month.

I had a chance to review two products.

The first product I tested out is Milkmaid Tea. I had a friend of mine test it out that is breastfeeding. She told me that it really helped build up her milk supply. I had a cup myself and it smells and tastes wonderful!

It's blended with herbal galactagogues, including fennel, fenugreek, anise seed and caraway seed, and mineral packed nettle and red raspberry leaf.

When I was in a class called Baby and Me, milk supply was one of the main concerns I heard among the other new mothers. 


The second product I reviewed is called Bamboobies. These nursing pads are so soft! My pack came with 3 regular Bamboobies and 1 pair of overnights. The regular pairs are heart shaped nursing pads. 

Although I'm not nursing, I still did do a few product tests. I washed them over and over again in the laundry bag the product was packaged in. They are still so soft. I also compared them to my other nursing pads. They are not as soft as my others, and they absorbed more water over the sink.

Packaging is GREAT!
3 Regular Bamboobies
 1 Pair of Overnights
 Look How Soft They Are!

Eco Mom is giving my readers a 15% discount code that can be used now until December 31, 2010!

I'm not sure! So many awesome items. I think probably the Under the Nile fruit teethers/graspers - I especially like the grapes and banana.

Hi, I’m Robert Loopez.. new to this space. Can someone help me finda site that offers natural/ eco-friendly baby products?
I’ve found a few sites but not all their products are organic or eco-friendly, and it’s hard to find a site that has cute stuff.

I’ve bought products from this site, they’re customer service is great and their products are great quality.

From their site“furniture is made with FSC certified sustainable woods and environmentally friendly manufacturing practices. Their bedding and towels are made of 100% organic cotton.”
