Happy Weekend! We finally had some cooler temps here in New York this past week and got to break out some of our favorite new wool goodies from Lana Care. They sent me the items to review back in August before Cole was born and I have been waiting ever since to wear/use them. They did not disappoint! You will probably notice a trend of organic and eco-friendly clothing and home items in some of my more recent post. I have been making an effort to source more sustainable products in all areas of our daily life and I am very excited to partner with companies like Lana Care that offer such exceptional quality products for my family at a reasonable price point,
Lana Care was founded in 1990 in Denmark by a Nurse / mother of 3 who wanted to design products that promote health and well being for mother and baby. Wool has so many amazing properties and the wool used to make all Lana Care products is strictly certified GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) and IVN Best (exceeds even the GOTS standards) organic untreated wool. Any and all dyes used are also certified non toxic.
Below are the items we have been using and a bit more about them.
I love these wool baby pants and booties. Wool is warm but extremely breathable which allows the wearer to maintain a comfortable temperature and makes these items super comfy for baby.! Not to mention ADORABLE! The pants have an adjustable waistband to accommodate a growing baby and the booties can be worn alone or layered with regular socks.
I am always cold so these cozy footlets are perfect for sleeping in as well as inserts in rubber rain boots for a bit of added warmth. (remove them before walking on wood or tile floors though! The wool is soft as silk and very slippery on smooth surfaces.)
These shoe inserts are my new cold weather must have! They slip easily into any pair of boots to add warmth and comfort. Fun fact: wool stays warm even when wet, so they are perfect for the Little's rain and snow boots!
Organic bedding is a must for me. When I was pregnant with Lilly I started looking into the harmful chemicals used on most bedding and going forward I only considered organic or non toxic options for the kid's mattresses, pillows and most of their bed linens., The toddler pillow is the perfect size and thickness for little ones, The Lana Care Pillow contains only organic wool encased in a super soft organic sateen cotton cover. They come in Junior and Standard Adult sizes as well!
Wool breast pads are genius. The Lana Care pads are very large, made to cover the entire breast, not just the nipple and surrounding area. For reference, I am a 36 C and I got a medium. The warmth of the wool helps with circulation and helps prevent clogged ducts ( I haven't had any!). The wool also allows air flow and prevents the yucky things that can happen when you expose skin to moisture for too long.
The breast cream is all natural lanolin, perfect for helping to heal dry or cracked nipples and you do not need to remove it before nursing your baby. FYI: the lanolin cream is great for healing any dry, irritated skin- I have also used it on my hands and lips!
The all natural lanolin soap cleans the wool pads without exposing them to any chemicals as a laundry detergent may do. so your entire nursing experience is safe and healthy!
Let me know some of your favorite cold weather products and brands!
