ecomom - Baby Samples Review and $15 Giveaway!

ecomom sent me some baby samples to review. They have of 2,000 healthy, smart and safe products for babies, kids, moms and dads.

These are the products they sent me:


My sister and I have both tried their Earth Mama Angel Baby Organic Milkmaid Tea. It tastes good, smells wonderful, helps boost breastmilk production and is caffeine free. ecomom sells a variety of their teas: For different stages in pregnancy, heartburn and No More Milk for mamas that are weaning.

My sister has had huge issues with breastfeeding my newest nephew since he has Trisomy 18. Her nipples are sore a lot. She uses Earth Mama Angel Baby Natural Nipple Butter.  I love that it is ok for both mom and baby. I never knew that with some nipple creams, they are unsafe to digest. With this brand there are literally no worries. It is 100% natural plant-based nipple cream, made with out lanolin to safely soothes, moisturize and protect sore nipples.

I had the great opportunity of trying out Kiddo - Hellomellow Avocado-Mango Butter Body Massage Oil on my nephew Emerson and cousin's baby Alex. They both were calmed and soothed. I rubbed their feet, backs and tummies. If you give your baby a tummy rub, rub in a clockwise motion. The oil is made with bergamot, chamomile and sweet orange infused body oil. I thought they had a hint of citrus to them when I was done.


Kiddo - Hellomellow Diaper Rash Bumbutter is a great diaper rash cream. Mainly because all the ingredients are pure! They include: Avocado, mango butter, essential oils of bergamat, orange and chamomile.

I'm so excited to get and try out Episencial Soothing Cream for eczema, itched and bothered skin! My youngest son Isaak has eczema issues on his scalp right now. I've managed to get the symptoms to decrease. He had scratched it, so I put this cream on the places that are scabbed over. It really didn't make his hair greasy looking like most products do. It's free from additives, has probiotics in the cream and is BPA free.

ecomom 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.
