New Product Added: Moby Wrap UV

Did you know Moby Wraps were now available with UV protection? Using the patented Rayosan™ technology by Clarient, the fabric offers an added layer of protection from the sun while maintaining the same appearance, handle, and breathability of the original Moby Wrap.

From the Moby Wrap website:  

Think of the Rayosan process as an invisible dye. It acts like a mirror and will deflect the harmful UVA and UVB rays off the fabric. These rays are bounced back and prevented from going through the fabric and harming baby’s delicate skin. Although it is a chemical process, it was tested and passed the Oeko-Tex 100 certification process, which ensures us that it was tested for harmful substances - and passed. We share Oeko-Tex commitment to your personal safety and the support of environmentally sound processes and you can rest assured that the product you have will not harm you or your child. The dye is considered to be durable for the life or the garment. It is long lasting, but will start to gradually wash out after 30 washes or so. The Rayosan coated fabric’s UPF value ranges from 44-48.

I am pleased to offer the new Moby Wrap UV to you.  My mother has a history of skin cancer, so products offering protection from the sun are important to me.  I hope they are to you, too. To Purchase, go here.

Almost the weekend...

It is 2 minutes to 9:00 am on Friday.  Lincoln has been down for his morning nap since 7:45 (it was an earlier morning than usual, so he crashed quickly!).  It is overcast and cloudy outside, meaning it is the perfect morning to be napping WITH the baby.  Sigh.  If I don't use his naps to get some work done, though, the days tend to get away from without even starting a project until after dinner.  So, work it is.

Fuzzi Bunz
Last night I added some new package deals on the Fuzzi Bunz One Size Pocket Diapers.  You can now purchase quantities of 4, 6, 9, and 12 diapers at a volume discount.  This is great if you are just starting your diaper stash, need to upgrade to a bigger size, or are looking to switch to a new diaper system all at once!  You can find these deals on our store page here.  

You can become a fan of Fuzzi Bunz™ on Facebook, too!  They are doing giveaways and more on their fan page.  And, while you're at it, why not become a fan of baby, naturally LLC as well!  

Now, off to pack up a diaper bag for a certain sleeping someone.  We are heading to our cloth diaper support group this morning and for once, I am determined to be on time!

Trunk Shows!

I have been working hard this week trying to get the store name out locally--taken business cards to several local businesses, posted on our mom's group message board, dropped samples off with my midwife, researched booths at 2 local fairs...and in addition, finally got my trunk show information posted! 

What is a trunk show, you ask?  Well, if you are local to the Houston area and would like to see and try out any of the products first hand, then a trunk show is for you!  All you need to do is pick a date and gather some of your friends and I will bring baby, naturally LLC to you.  Trunk shows are perfect for mom's groups, baby showers, Mother's Nights Out, Saturday tea, and more.  There is even a discount available for hosting if your guests reach a certain dollar limit in orders!

Come find out more about baby, naturally LLC trunk show here!
