Humanity Family Bed
A safe and effective co-sleeping pillow

Side bolster offers over 4 feet of roll off protection for your baby, one of the main concerns parents have with co-sleeping. No pushing your bed against a wall or using side rails (practices which have been shown to be dangerous). No need for bulky pillows along the bedside, taking up valuable sleeping space, no worries about pillows falling off of the bed allowing baby to fall to the floor, or worries about pillows covering baby's face during sleep.

Extra large sleeping pad is made of 3 layers of 100% organic cotton flannel, giving mom and baby a super soft, super absorbent sleeping surface. This pad absorbs milk leaked from the breasts during night time sleep and night time nursings, as well as messes from baby, making sleep time more comfortable, while protecting your sheets and mattress at the same time.

Dunstan Baby Language
As announced in an exclusive interview on the Oprah Winfrey Show, Australian mother Priscilla Dunstan has the world talking with the discovery of the secret language of babies. This breakthrough in infant care is the result of one mother's intuition that began nearly a decade of investigation and international research. The Dunstan Baby Language DVD teaches parents the 5 cries all newborns use to communicate their everyday needs from day one. You will know when your baby is hungry, tired, needs burping (upper wind), has gas (lower wind) or is simply uncomfortable. By learning this system parents are able to settle their baby faster, resulting in happier babies who sleep longer and cry less - something every new parent would wish to know.
Products
Premature babies - Babies born prematurely crave a womb-like environment and very often must be held much of the time in their first months. The Hushamok provides this safe environment in addition to a natural motion that mimics that "being held" feeling

Restless sleepers - Babies who tend to thrash or have trouble getting to sleep respond well to the Hushamok's natural motion. Many babies learn quickly how to create motion by moving their arms or legs, which soothes them and rocks them back to sleep.

Short nappers - While baby may stir during their daytime naps, the Hushamok responds to those movements and keeps your baby sleeping soundly for longer periods of time. The Hushamo's portability is also allows you to keep the napping baby nearby.

Sacro Wedgy
The Sacro Wedgy® is a device that isolates and elevates the sacrum (your tail-bone) and uses gravity to help relax, align and re-balance from the hips out.  What we have learned is that we're basically creatures of balance — chemical, emotional and physical. This is a tool and a system to use to help achieve better muscle balance. Many therapists utilizing this tool in their practice.

The muscle called the piriformis originates with the wide end of this triangular shaped muscle attached to the front of the sacrum and the narrow end attached to the hip. As gravity takes over and the hips relax, the piriformis has a chance to stretch a little. The sciatic nerve passes through this muscle so it can help many with sciatica. This muscle is also thought to be the beginning of a series of misalignments of the sacrum or what could be called a "snowball" effect.

There is a male and female version of the Sacro Wedgy® because of the difference in the shape of the sacrum. The average female sacrum is slightly wider and shorter, because of the birth canal, than the more narrow, longer male sacrum. This explains why some taller women who have a longer, narrower torso do better using the male version.

Epi-No
A Pelvic Floor Muscle Exercise device to prepare for giving birth. It consists of a silicone balloon and a light hand pump. It is, unfortunately, not availbale in the US but, if you have friends in the UK, Ireland, Israel, Germany, Canada or Australia, they can buy one and send it to you.

Pre-birth perineal massaging alone might help but is not enough to prevent a high percentage of women experiencing perineal injury during birth. Perineal injury can cause tissue scars sometimes related to pain during sexual intercourse.

Epi-No can be used from from 37 weeks the exercises enhance the function of the natural pregnancy hormone Relaxin to prepare the perineum with gentle stretching exercises, which reduces the risk of tearing or the need for an episiotomy during childbirth.
BEAUTYCOUNTER
For decades, we've trusted the beauty industry to have our best interests in mind. It doesn't! Every day American families are exposed to harmful ingredients commonly found in the products they use on their skin. The United States has not passed a major federal law to regulate the safety of ingredients used in personal care products since 1938.

Over the past two decades, the European Union has banned close to 1,400 chemicals in the product formulas of personal care products and restricted the levels of over 250 more in such products. The United States has only partially banned 30 to date.

What's worse is that the Food and Drug Administration (the agency that regulates cosmetics in the United States) does not have the authority to remove harmful ingredients from the products we put on our bodies and on our kids' bodies every single day, day after day.

Beautycounter is committed to a health and safety standard that goes well beyond what's required by U.S. law: They've prohibited the use of more than 1,500 questionable or harmful chemicals through "The Never List™" — all while ensuring their products perform and that they're as indulgent as any other luxe shampoo, lipstick, or oil in the market.

Beautycounter is on a mission to get safer products into the hands of everyone. This is about progress — not perfection. Because every little bit counts.

Protect yourself, your unborn baby and your whole family with truly safe products from BEAUTYCOUNTER.
