February Mom & Baby Box from Ecocentric Mom

Ecocentric Mom is a company committed to providing non-toxic, green products  to women at any stage in her life. This company has something to meet the needs of everyone! On top of that, the affordability ($24/box!!) makes it accessible for practically anyone’s budget.

While everyone enjoys treats, a new mom needs them! When you’re a mom, the lack of sleep and sole focus on your new little one means your needs get put on the back burner—everything from showers, meals, and sleep, become a distant memory.

When I last reviewed a box I was pregnant—now I’m the proud mom of a beautiful, healthy two-month-old. Considering how hard a new mommy’s life is, this box was a blessing.

The day I received my Mom & Baby box had been a hard one. My son had spent all night eating every two hours and sleep had been minimal. The day had been a long one, filled with fussiness (both from the two-month-old and my four-year-old) but the final straw was my husband calling saying he had to work late.

I didn’t get to open the box that had arrived hours earlier until AFTER dinner. The table had been cleared, the baby was asleep, my four-year-old had settled to watch TV, and I was finally free to sit down and look at the box.

I felt like a kid in a candy store! So many little treasures for me to peruse, all of which were focused on making ME happy. The sigh I let out was so full of contentment my husband actually checked in on me to see if I was okay!

The best part about being asked to review these boxes is learning about new product I will be able to gift to friends in the future. The next year of my life may be focused on the Mom & Baby boxes, but there will come a time when I will order an Ecocentric Discovery Box  just for myself.

Let’s take a closer look at the February Mom & Baby Box:

Just for mom!

Pure Essential Botanic Bath Infusions

The Bath Infusions are 3-in-1 relaxing bath therapies that combine restorative mineral sea salts, fragrant essential oils, and curative herbs and flowers in a 100% biodegradable soilon pouch. And they are PURE DECADENCE!

The small fabric satchel made me feel classy  and spoiled before I even took the elusive “mom bath.” You know–the first hot bath since finding out you were pregnant. And my experience was made sweeter by the husband who takes care of my babies so I had a half an hour of precious “me” time!

My “pick Me Up” scent included: Himalayan salt, Epsom salt, green roobios, orange peel, sweet orange oil, levender oil, petitgrain oil, blood orange oil, and baking soda.

Kelpo Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

This is a great source of medium-chain fatty acids and calories for breastfeeding moms (or any mom trying to keep up with the rigors of raising a baby!). I received two packages and I immediately opened the package, ate a little and used the rest to sear up some pastured oxtails I had in the fridge. The second package went into the diaper bag for emergency immune support.

Kelapo Coconut Oil is organic, cold-pressed, and fair trade approved.

Product Pricing: 8oz – $7.69; 14oz – $11.99; 15oz – $12.99;  29oz – $22.99

Amara Baby Food

For babies 4 months and older, this organic food pouch makes a 2.5 oz. serving and  can be mixed with water or breastmilk.

I can’t wait until my little one is eating solid! While I will start with egg yolks, broth, and liver, this will be a welcome treat for my little one around 6 months!

Bum Boosa Bamboo

I LOVE these wipes!!! They are so thick and soft. They would be perfect for washing and reusing.

Bum Boosa replaces the traditional synthetic or tree-pulp wet wipe with renewable and sustainable bamboo and  plant-based ingredients such as Calendula, Chamomile, and Organic Aloe Vera care for delicate skin. Scented with Lavender and Sweet Orange essential oils.

Mom & Baby Bonding

Mama Loves Me by Mara Van Fleet

In this sweet story, a cute baby elephant shares his admiration for his mom’s special talents—using her trunk to reach up high, to play hide-and-seek, to give him a quick shower, and to kiss him at goodnight.

As a reading specialist, I know the value of reading to children—and infants are no different! Reading to them provides language support AND bonding time. As an added bonus, my 4-year-old was able to share and received literacy skills in addition to simple reading enjoyment!
