Little Twig Ladybug Bath Mitt – Value $4.59
This soft, terrycloth mitt features an adorable ladybug shape. It gently scrubs away dirt and dead skin. Though I’ve only tested in on myself (3 weeks away from my EDD), I can attest to it to be being really mild on the skin. I also love that this bath mitt is cute without being over-the-top. Finding baby stuff that isn’t a million wacky colors and covered in googly eyes is just my style!
Baby Soy Mitten Set – Value $8.00
Another (very different) kind of mitt, these are intended to prevent baby from scratching. You receive a set of 2 in a 50% azlon from soy and 50% cotton fabric blend. The mittens are soft and their elastic feels secure without seeming that it’d be too restricting. I’m excited to try these out in my first few weeks with baby.
Mambino Tippy Toes Calming Baby Oil, sample (buy a 5 oz. bottle for $13.95 from Healthiest)
It’s no surprise that ‘gentle’ seems to be the word of the day when describing the products in this month’s bundle. It’s awesome that this oil is organic and fragrance-free. From Mambino, the oil is “easily absorbed into skin, to soothe dry, itchy skin, cradle cap, winter cheeks, as well as other minor skin irritations while providing long-lasting hydration.”
EcoPiggy EcoPacifier – Value $7.99
I’ve stocked up on several of these natural pacifiers, but you can never have too many! The one I received is appropriately for 0-6 months, but they’re also available in 6+ months. This pacifier is molded from one solid piece of 100% natural rubber — no small pieces = no choking hazard. The orthodontic shape mimics the shape of a mother’s breast. A little more about the pure rubber material:
Ecopiggy’s Natural Pacifier, Ecopacifier, is made of 100% pure rubber from the rubber tree, Hevea brasillensi. These trees are sustainably grown in plantations in Malaysia. The rubber tree exudes a latex sap, the world’s primary source of natural rubber, which is tapped in a similar manner to maple syrup from a maple tree. After about 20-25 years the tree stops producing latex sap. The trees are then harvested and replanted. The harvested wood is used extensively in furniture, flooring, construction and even toys. From seed to tree to ecopacifier to wooden toys, the Rubbertree has an eco-friendly, sustainable and high quality life.
Erba Organics Baby Shampoo, 1 oz. – Value $1.47 (buy a 6 oz. bottle for $8.79)
This mild shampoo is 77% organic, free of paraben, artificial colors, fragrances, and animal testing. Like other products I’ve tried from Erba Organics, it has a lovely, bright citrus scent. Organic lavender and organic chamomile leaves skin smooth and refreshed without being harsh.
Earth Mama Angel Baby Organics Milkmaid Tea – Value $5.99
I do plan on breastfeeding my baby if all goes well, and I’ve recently started researching different foods that promote healthy milk production. Needless to say, I was thrilled to see this tea in this month’s product assortment. It contains all the good stuff: fenugreek, fennel, milk thistle, and other galactagogue herbs historically used by nursing mothers to promote lactation. This is one of those things that I’ll have to wait a few weeks to try, but its fragrant herbaceous mix is making me really excited to attempt conquering the often rough start of the breastfeeding journey.
Motherlove Nipple Cream, 1 oz. – Value $10.95
This salve is, again, all natural and doesn’t actually need to be washed off before breastfeeding. It has a really hydrating quality and feels like it’s moisturizing rather than simply sitting on the skin.
Baby Soy Onesie – Value $20.00? (based on similar styles from Baby Soy)
I’m starting to really love the Baby Soy brand thanks to my introduction to it from 21 Bundles! This soft onesie is comprised of 50% azlon from soy and 50% organic cotton with reverse stitching and snaps along the button. But let’s talk about that octopus holding a lollipop graphic, shall we? SO CUTE.
Verdict: My fourth 21 Bundles box was full of items that made me feel prepared for baby’s first days. I really enjoyed this approach in conjunction with last month’s postpartum focus. 21 Bundles does an excellent job of catering to where you are in your pregnancy which is super appreciated. Each month’s box is individualized and fits well with those you receive previous to it.
With a total box cost of $42.99, the 8 items in this box average out to $5.38 a piece. I think that’s more than reasonable considering that bigger ticket items like the onesie and nipple cream are worth much more.
Overall, I continue to be impressed by this box and I love how prepared it makes me feel. Really builds my confidence as a new mom-to-be!
