The Just Hatched products were sent to me at no cost to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.
I've always cared about the products I use in my home and on my body. But somehow having a baby makes you think about it even more. I want to make sure what I’m using on my baby is safe. It seems that now more than ever people are paying attention to toxins that are in so many products we use on a daily basis – and these things are even in baby shampoos & body washes. So I was excited to learn about the company Just Hatched who uses the phrase “No Yucky Stuff Inside!”. They have a great line of baby body products that are Hypoallergenic, Sulfate/Paraben/Phthalate Free and most importantly - affordable!
Bright Baby Shampoo – I love this shampoo! And here’s why… I have a sweaty little boy. Maybe he’s hot blooded like his Dad, I have no idea. But I felt that after washing his hair with the “natural” shampoo products I've been using there was always this left behind sweaty smell that I just couldn't seem to get rid of. But after using Bright Baby Shampoo now his hair actually smells fresh and clean and the sweaty smell is gone! That makes this Momma pretty happy.
Sleepy Baby Wash – We all want our kids to get a good night’s sleep, right? Sure, it’s partly because as Mom we want a good night’s sleep too because we need the energy to keep up with our families. But also because we have growing children and sleep is an important of keeping them healthy and growing! Cue the Sleepy Baby wash. It has a relaxing scent of lavender, chamomile and orange and is designed to be calming, soothing and promote sleep. Not only does it help your baby relax but it's relaxing for Mom too! The baby wash is creamy, lathers nicely and is perfect for that just before bedtime bath!
Soft Baby Body Lotion – So this was my least favorite of all the products. Not because I didn't like the lotion but because I wasn't a fan of the scent. The lotion has a thinner consistency than most lotion I'm used to. But the light consistency of this lotion allows it to absorb quickly into your kiddo’s skin plus it isn't greasy so I like that. My only hang up is it does have a strong sweet scent. And while some people are going to love it, it’s just too sweet smelling for me. I do consider my nose sensitive to smells so if you love having the scent of your lotion linger for a while then then might be the perfect lotion for you and your family!
Butter My Bottom Tushy Cream – Because I use cloth diapers I was a little nervous about using this. I want to make sure I don’t use anything that affects the absorbency of my diapers. But I read on both Facebook and Twitter that this cream is safe for cloth diapers so I went ahead and gave it a try. The cream has a nice light scent that I like and I also like that it isn't as thick as some of the well-known mainstream diaper rash brands that you may have maybe used. I prefer the consistency of the Just Hatched product and it covers the rash on your babies bum just fine! Levi doesn't have any major problems with rashes so I can’t vouch for the product helping to clear up a rash but I do know that it helps product your baby’s skin from the dampness that comes from being in diapers 24/7 and prevents those rashes from happening. And now some TMI for everyone(save it for last). I hate to say it but for all you ladies that are well endowed you’ll hear me on the boob sweat that comes hand in hand with summer time. And sometimes on really bad days the sweat is followed by a heat type rash and it’s just so uncomfortable!! I hate hate hate it! If you don't get what I'm talking about just be thankful! So as embarrassing as it may be the last couple days I've tried this cream as a protective layer under my breasts and it’s been working wonderfully! It's not thick and gross and it doesn't smell bad and it helps protect against that nasty rash. I may love this product even more than my son! ;-)
Overall, I'm quite pleased with these products and have/will enjoy using them on my son(and me!).

Just some picture fun! The photo booth pictures on the left are from when we went to the beach the first week of May. I saw the photo booth and though about the picture my Mom did with my brother and I when we were little. I'm not sure how old I was in the pictures on the right but Levi was 13 months when he got to experience his first photo booth! The quality however has gone down-hill badly. Or maybe we just got in a bad photo booth...
