Ever since LC was born (and actually, in the belly,) I wanted to make sure my baby boy had nothing but the best. I researched for hours on hours for the best everything from what I should be eating during pregnancy and nursing to clothes. What I didn’t do however, was use cloth diapers. This was a decision I will forever regret. I wanted to so badly (not only for the obvious reasons of not rubbing chemicals all over my child’s soft bottom,) but also, because they are totally cute!
When I first thought about cloth diapering, I was picturing the white cloth folded and held together with pins. When I mentioned cloth diapers to Kyle, he thought the same thing. Ultimately, I thought it would be too expensive and more work and we decided not to. After researching more into it and realizing I was living in the 80′s thinking cloth diapers were STILL held together with pins, I decided I really wanted to give it a shot. Not only were the chemicals and health reasons a dead ringer for me, but also the economical and environmental advantages to cloth diapers too! I have made a conscious effort to be more “green” since becoming a mom and trying to do things more healthy for our bodies, but also for the planet too. Besides, the cost of cloth diapers was surprisingly NOT more expensive that disposables!
Lectures aside, cloth diapers were the better and more conscious decision for me and my family. Now that LC is 17 months, I have started to introduce potty training a little bit into his daily lifestyle. We all know how much my child loves Elmo, so the Elmo Potty Time DVD is a favorite in our house! Well I came across this product on another Blog called the “Potty Praiser” (more about that later) and when I searched the Potty Praiser online, I found Jack Be Natural!
“Jack turned Nimble into Natural. Next generation parenting… keeping our children safe and our planet healthy, naturally.” How amazing is THAT!? Jack Be Natural!? What a unique and PERFECT idea!! Then I started browsing their products, and I was in retail mommy heaven!!!!! Jack Be Natural carries the best of the best! FuzziBunz, BumGenius, LuSa Organics, Smart Mom Jewelry, Organic Kids….. are you LOVING IT!?
I was even more excited to see they had a Diaper Consignment Section, Jack Be Back (giving back to charity), and so much more! For those of you who know me, you know giving back to the community and charity work is so close to my heart, and this was something that really made me excited to give them my business! After waiting for their Grand Opening information, I sent them an e-mail asking some questions. Since they are an online store, I wanted a little but more information on a few of the products.
Stacy and John were nice enough to let me and my family into their home (aka : “warehouse”) and let me browse through their products. They answered all of the questions we had, and we left with more than what I had originally found after browsing online (and even a few weeks later went back for MORE!) I landed some really awesome products, and am already planning what to try next! We bought this AMAZING Baby Wipe Juice by LuSa Organics anyone who cloth diapers HAS to HAVE! It smells amazing, and works even better!
We also got an awesome stainless steel sippy cup by Organic Kidz that LC loves! We love the Klean Kanteen, and this was an awesome new brand to add to our stash! We got a Wet Bag (by Planet Wise, which is so great!) and I also HAD TO HAVE the “teething bling” by Smart Mom Jewelry (which is one of my newest favorites!) LC loves to chew on my jewelry, so this was an awesome new thing to add to my collection! (I even landed a Smart Mom Jewelry product review, which I am SO EXCITED about, so keep reading for that to come soon!!!!)
A few weeks later, we decided to order the NeatNik Saucer which is the coolest invention! Everyone has to HAVE ONE! ESPECIALLY if you’re a total germophobe like me!
We had the BEST experience with Jack Be Natural, and Jack has definitely brought the best products for mom’s to enjoy at ease with their precious little joys! Who doesn’t want the best for their children? Jack Be Natural brings you the best product & service! Check them out on Facebook and on their website at jackbenatural.com! You will NOT be disappointed!
And if you don’t cloth diaper or thought it was too hard or expensive, there is a lot of information on their site, and I urge you to research more, because it’s not as hard or as expensive as you may think!
Thank you to Stacy and John for coming up with this totally innovative and practical store to the Charlotte area and GOOD LUCK on this amazing business venture!
I look at cloth diapering and every parenting decision and product we buy for LC as an investment. An investment into our child’s healthy future. This is how I want every parent to look at what you are buying for your little one’s, because every decision we make now is impacting what we are getting ready for as they grow. Here is a picture of our little “investments” we made thanks to Jack Be Natural!
