With the increasing threat of toxins from preservatives and artificial color/flavoring, parents are starting to do more research on products that contain less chemicals and more natural ingredients. We recently became aware of the benefits of Vitamin D for both children and adults through Little D3 Drops.
According to medical experts, 75% of Americans are Vitamin D deficient. Due to this statistic and the alarming Vitamin D levels of young toddlers, the American Academy of Pediatrics now recommends that all babies be given 400IU of oral, liquid Vitamin D – shortly after birth whether the baby is exclusively breast fed, partially breast fed or formula fed.
Though five forms of it are known to science (vitamins D1, D2, D3, D4 and D5), the two forms that matter most to humans are D2 (ergocalciferol, a synthetic form made by irradiating fungus and plant matter) and D3 (cholecalciferol, a natural form created in our bodies from sunlight exposure). Aside from being more natural, vitamin D3 is 87 percent more potent than vitamin D2, making it the best form of vitamin D for our bodies and in particular supplementation in babies.
Dubbed the “Little Bottle of Sunshine”, Little D3 Drops is a natural Vitamin D supplement created for all ages that is beneficial in many ways…
-Reduces cancer risk
-Boosts immune function
-Regulates over 3000 genes
-Lowers high blood pressure
-Optimizes bone weight
-Prevents bone loss
-Helps prevent allergies, asthma, eczema and multiple sclerosis
-Decreases the risk of sensitization to food allergens, especially to milk and wheat.
When using Little D3 Drops:
– ensure cap is tightly closed and Shake the Bottle well
– using the enclosed dropper, measure the dose required – expel the air in the dropper, place the dropper into the liquid and release the bulb. This will draw up 0.5 mL.
– may be given directly into the mouth or added to any fluid or food.
– store the bottle upright.
Little D3 Drops is affordable, easy to use with it’s built in measuring system right on the glass dropper, and smells and tastes sweet so you and your little one will enjoy getting your Vitamin D!
This is a great gift for new moms and an easy way for adults to supplement as well. Little D3 Drops retail for under $20 at Amazon.com and comes with a very informative free ebook to learn more about the benefits of Vitamin D.

Tired of your baby always grabbing for your fingers, hands, keys, fine jewelry? Check out the teething jewelry sets from beabies. We recently received a set in the pearl/white color and love the subtle shimmer of the silicon beads. The beads are very well made, strung on a stretchy string with a plastic clasp and feel slightly squishy to the touch. Beabies also don’t have a scent or taste ensuring your baby won’t be breathing in/chewing any toxic chemicals when they are using the jewelry to teethe. Beabies are BPA-Free, FDA approved, PVC-Free, Latex-Free, Rubber-Free, Lead-Free silicone and contain no vinyl, phthalates, plastic, nitrosamines, cadmium, or heavy metals.
We are super excited that you can just place these beads on the top rack of your dishwasher to clean after use. Since the beads are silicon based, lent will stick to the beads but rinses off easily using only water. No dishwasher? The beads can also be sanitized by boiling water (recommended before first use). Freeze beabies for especially fussy teethers. The beads are soothing to a teething baby, provide entertainment and a chemical-free way to relieve pain.
Beabies are so fashionable you’ll never forget to bring them with you. Match the five available colors to your outfit and go. An accessory that will save your fine jewelry and hands from slobber and keep baby content. Beabies are safe for everyone, but as with any product with small parts, supervision is required while using beabies.
This is a great gift for new moms, baby showers and fashionable aunts and grandmas! Get yours today at Amazon.com.
After an especially frustrating experience with her newborn daughter’s ill-fitting beanie,
Infanteenie Beenie founder, Missy Woolf, began taking matters in her own hands. She set out to create a high-end hospital beanie that would keep with the traditional hospital beanie style, fit every newborn and add a bit of personality to newborn baby boys and girls.
We recently received the above samples and we were super impressed with the quality, design and packaging. Each Infanteenie Beenie comes in a logo printed reusable bag. Perfect for gifting and storing your newborn’s first beanie. The fabric of the beanie is baby soft and super stretchy, ensuring a snug, comfortable fit.
There are several designs to choose from whether you are having a boy or a girl. From bows to flowers to hearts and puppies, you are sure to find the perfect one!
Beanies are important for newborns because they prevent excessive heat loss, and are essential for monitoring baby’s temperature at the hospital and at home.
