Soon I will be welcoming a new baby into my life, so I have been searching online for information.
One of the best resources I have found is Wellness Mama. This blog is positive but realistic, and all of her recipes are easy to follow. I especially loved her post on 15 baby products you actually need as I’ve found that there is a huge amount of baby stuff marketed to new parents, and it’s not always clear what is necessary and what isn’t. I also loved her basic slow cooker soap recipe and can’t wait to try making soap for the first time. She makes it sound so easy and I think bars of homemade soap would make great thank you gifts for shower presents.
I also like the blog The Elliott Homestead. She’s got lots of homemade “goodies”, as she calls them- health and beauty items, home care, etc. In particular, I plan to make her breastfeeding nipple cream since I am allergic to lanolin and many over the counter nipple creams have lanolin in them.
