[Sponsored reviews] Mummytoon organic baby products - Part I

Happy Mid-week mommies!! How is the week treating you so far?
I have been so busy ever since I came back from Rompin. Back to work, back to my kids and family, back to reality!
I have some sponsored goodies that I reviewed over the past week and finally have time tonight to share with all of you :)

Friends and family know I'm quite the organic freak. My children and I are large consumers of organic stuff, from food produce to milk and right down to shampoo and body wash.
Why choose organic, you ask??
I've actually written a post HERE explaining why I choose organic and why I feel it benefits our children.

As you might already know, organic stuff in Singapore do not come cheap. Therefore, I am constantly on the quest for affordable yet convenient organic retailers.
I first came across Mummytoon website about a year ago when I was pregnant with Ashton and sourcing for lowest-priced California Baby products and have been buying my organic supplies from them since. Not only do they have the full California Baby range, they also have Bellamy organic milk and cereal which Ashton is consuming at the moment.
Their doorstep courier service (FREE for orders $100 and above) saves me a lot of hassle.

Recently, Maria and Eileen from Mummytoon sponsored me several items for review on my blog and I must say I am very honoured!

Let's have a look at what the items are that came in our delivery!

Organic snacks, pureed juice, skincare, California Baby bubble bath, and SgBum cloth nappy.
We are stoked!

California Baby bubble bath:

I think this brand needs no introduction as it has been around for very long and remains popular with Mommies here and here's what we think:

Our skin, being the largest organ of our bodies, deserves to be treated kindly, more so for our children.
Babies usually have sensitive skin and are susceptible to rashes (heat rash, nappy rash, pimply bumps), therefore I chose California Baby due to its wide range (from shampoo to body wash to powder and creams), and being organic and sulphate-free (sulphate is the foam-causing agent in most soaps).
California Baby is kind on nature and even kinder to my family.

Verdict: It is very mild and suitable for the most sensitive of skins, and non-drying as well. Although the smell is rather subtle and doesn't last long (compared to brands like Johnson & Johnson), I will still buy it because sometimes my babies are prone to redness and rash on their skin due to our humid weather. Other commercial brands of baby wash leave their skin slightly dry and flaky on their limbs, but I've never experienced this with California Baby. Worth the money.

Next up: organic treats!
Happy Baby organic fruit puree pouches. (pictured first 3 from left)
Verdict: Available in different flavours, I brought these Puree Pouches out with us last Sunday when we had to be out the entire day (swimming lesson for Adam, lunch, going back to my Mum's, we were practically out the whole day). I mixed these into Ashton's organic cereal and it served as a complete meal for an 8-mth old with grains, greens and fruits. The puree is of smooth consistency and just like what you would expect out of puree jars.
Disposable and comes in just right serving sizes mean no wastage and no washing up.
Brilliant, me thinks!
Organix Goodies organic raisins and chopped apples snacks. Packaged in convenient, individual packs for travelling with your tods:

Verdict: I like these small individual packs for the added freshness and convenience because it just means I don't have to pour them into snack holders. This shaves a lot of weight and bulk from my diaper bag which is so important. Plus, raisin and apple snack - something you cannot go wrong with especially on your little tikes!

Happy Baby organic fruit puffs - in banana flavour:

Certified USDA organic and melts in baby's mouth. Which means, they are good for toothless eaters just like my Ashton!
Verdict: Good thing they come in BPA free bottles, which goes to show no expense is spared in ensuring the best for your baby. No harmful plastic, no harmful chemicals in the treats that go directly into their mouths and gastro-intestinal tracts.
The only downside I can find probably is, due to the large bottle size (as tall and wide as a 1L water bottle), and the lid not being air-tight, the puffs start losing crispness quicker than my kids can consume them. If you're thinking of buying this product, I suggest you pour them into airtight storage containers, or they simply make an ideal shared snack for playdates or parties.
That's not all. Our reviews of Mummytoon's SgBum cloth nappy will be up in the next post.
And by the way, have you checked out Mummytoon for the wide array of products they carry?
