TruKid Bubbly Baby Wash & Sweet Baby Lotion Review

All three of my children suffer with different degrees of eczema. They have sadly had this condition since birth. It's a genetic condition in my family and not much that can be done. Certain steps need to be taken to insure proper care of all of my children's needs. I hate using the steroid cream that we receive from the doctor, but sometimes it is necessary. There are so many different ways to treat eczema, but not many washed and lotions that help keep their flare ups away.

I found this great company that makes eco-friendly products for children. TruKid is a California based company, which focuses on healthy clean products for children. Jennifer, is the founder of TruKid and is a mother of six children! She definitely understands the needs of their sensitive skin.  

TruKid is free of many harmful chemicals, which are found in other baby washes and lotions. Check out their Toxic Bad Guys list. This list shows many of the ingredients found in the majority of skin care products that have been reported to have detrimental effects on the planet and human health.  

Toxic Bad Guys: 10 Most UNWANTED Ingredients:

  1. Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (Found in 90% of products that lather)
  2. Petroleum (cold creams, lipsticks, baby creams, etc.)
  3. Phthalates (listed under fragrance) - Can be found in plastics, nail polishes, creams, lotions (anything containing fragrance/parfum ingredient)
  4. Avobenzene (aka: oxybenzone, benzophone, dioxybenzophone or benzophenome-3; and Parsol-1789) Can be found in chemical sunscreens as UVA absorber
  5. Triethanolamine (EDTA) Found in shampoos, toothpastes, sunscreens, hair color and moisturizers
  6. Parabens - Found in 75-90% of personal care products
  7. Diethanolamine (DEA) - Found in creams, shampoos, lotions and other cosmetics
  8. Propylene Glycol (PG) - Can be found in cake mixes, soft drinks, lotions, creams, baby wipes, shampoos, deodorants and other cosmetics
  9. Polyethylene Glycol (PEG) - Can be found in most skin cleansers, toothpastes and oven cleaners.
  10. Formaldehyde Derivatives - (DMDH Hydantoin, Imidazolidinyl Urea) - Can be found in shampoos and cosmetics to prevent molds, mildews and bacteria spoilage.

My Experience with their sweet baby lotion, and Bubbly baby body & hair wash was amazingly refreshing. The scent was an unexpected, yet delightful citrus. Unlike some natural products the Bubbly baby hair & body wash did indeed "bubble". I used the Sweet Baby Lotion and Bubbly Baby Body and Hair Wash for all three of my children. My four year old claimed it smelled like peaches. Which, I do have to agree. The Bubbly baby Body wash had more of a peach scent. While the Sweet Baby Lotion smelled of oranges. All three of them had great results using these products. They smelled amazing! What's more, they didn't have any bad reactions to it! I love the all natural ingredients. This is now my go-to body wash and lotion for my children. I'm looking forward to trying out more of their products in the future. 

TruKid also developed a great learning system for young children. They use child friendly words in their product line. Which are usually found in kids' everyday learning vocabulary. The TruKid learning System  features symbols on their bottles which makes it easy for kids to identify what part of the body the product is for. This is definitely a plus in my book. Such a great learning tool for young children.

Their bottles are cheerful and bright. I can't get over the colors! This is such a unique product! My kids loved the bright colors. TruKid uses color coded bottles to make it easier for children to understand. Blue for cleansing, green for nourishing and orange for sun protection. 

You can also find many printables on TruKid. It is really a lot of fun. I encourage you to go and see for yourself. Then, come back here and tell me what your favorite product is.

Drammy Droopers review ~~Sponsor Spotlight~~

Recently, Heather from Drammy Droopers sent me this adorable Pink Giraffe print diaper to review. Heather was such a joy to work with. 

I just could not get over how adorable this diaper was. It arrived in just a couple business days wrapped in a colorful tissue paper, with a card attached. This gesture was simple, yet heartwarming. Baby girl looked so adorable in this cloth  diaper. I really hate to admit it but once I took this diaper and soaker out of the wash I could not resist feeling the softness of it against my cheek. Luckily it was clean. I would recommend DrammyDroopers to everyone! 

  • Ease Of Use: ♥♥♥♥Snaps are by far my favorite closure type. Velcro or Aplix always gets stuck together in a ball and pulls at my diapers. Snaps are always harder in the beginning, but with ware they become much easier to use.

  • Adjustability: ♥♥♥♥♥ This AI2 diaper is extremely adjustable. It fits most babies from 10 - 35 lbs. The double layer of snaps definitely help a lot. My little girl had no issue fitting into her DrammyDroopers. The picture is with just one insert, and you can see that there is not much bulk. 

  • Leak Proof: ♥♥♥♥DrammyDroopers are an AI2 diaper. Which has a hidden PUL layer. The outside is a cotton layer. While the inner layer is an extremely durable suedecloth. Making this my favorite leak proof diaper. Each wash increases the absorbency of the materials used. I recommend washing this diaper 7-10 times before use. Just so it reaches maximum absorbency. The pocket in DrammyDroopes is great for nighttime. Just add an extra soaker and you are ready for a fluffy leak free night. The soaker used has bamboo and rayon layers.

  • Wash Routine: ♥♥♥♥Prepping this diaper took quite a while. Since I was inpatient, I washed twice before using. Since then it has been washed over 20 times. The best way I found to wash DrammyDroopers was to use a cold rinse first. Then proceed with your Warm/hot cycle with detergent. Finish it off with another cold rinse. It's actually pretty typical for cloth diapers to be washed this way. I did have to do 2 additional rinses yesterday, due to an explosion. We could not get the yellow poop out. But I'm pretty sure all stains are far gone now.

  • $$$$: ♥♥♥♥♥ You can purchase DrammyDroopers with a soaker pad for $25.00. Pretty average for WAHM diapers. I've found AI2 for anywhere from $20-$40 online. Trust me, these are worth the price.

  • Cuteness Factor: ♥♥♥♥♥ The pink giraffe print has been the cutest diaper I have owned. Ever. Definitely unique from the average solid prints. This definitely gets 5 stars on the cuteness factor! Heather has such amazingly adorable prints. I'm secretly hoping she will get different colored suedecloth for the inner fabric. Go check out all of her adorable prints and tell me which you would love.

  • Sizing: With a one size (OS) what is not to love? It will grow with your baby and you won't have to purchase anymore diapers. DrammyDroopers are for babies 10 - 35 lbs. I tried this on my 32 lb son.. Shh. It fit! No, I didn't take any blackmail pictures. That's just mean. We don't mind our little boy playing dress up.

  • Materials: DrammyDroopers has an outer layer of cotton fabric print, and an inner layer of soft and durable Microfleece or suedecloth. Middle layer is laminated long lasting high quality waterproof polyester PUL to keep moisture inside.

The soaker snaps into the fitted diapering system for light to medium wetters, or along with one soaker being snapped in, another can be inserted into the pocket for nighttime. Soakers outer soft layer is made from Organic bamboo cotton while inside is 100%  absorbent Rayon. 

Buy it: Try it out for yourself! I would love to see pictures of your babies in their new DrammyDrooper Fluff!

Stay tuned for my Mama Madness Giveaway March 1st for your chance to WIN a DrammyDrooper diaper of your own!
