Keeping Yourself & Your Baby Sun Safe with ACURE Organics

Summertime is one of our favorite seasons. Warm weather, perhaps a little extra down time, and of course soaking in the sun’s rays. But wait: as great as the sun may FEEL, we all know the detrimental effects that UV rays can have on our skin. Hopefully, you’re protecting yourself and the little one every time you go outside.

Your choices for sun care can be overwhelming, especially with the plethora of ingredients you need to read through from each product. We’ve come across one brand who’s making it easy to not only care for your own skin this summer, but also your little one’s with natural sunscreen.

Why are you crying, Baby?


why cry

A device that can understand a baby’s cry? Sounds like science fiction. But UK-based Wellis claims it can do just that, and is now offering the third iteration of its Why Cry Baby Crying Analyzer — which it says is ten percent more accurate than the first.

The device recognizes different types of baby noises and cries — which in turn teaches parents what each sound means.

“During the first year of a baby’s life, it is very difficult for new parents to understand why their baby is crying,” the company says. “Once they learn if the baby is hungry, in pain, bored, or even, just overtired, they will be much more comfortable and confident and able to attend to the baby’s specific needs right away.”

Pricing ranges from $50–100. (Affiliate link)

Warm those baby wipes


Wipes Warmer

Why shock your child with a cold cloth when you can warm up that baby wipe first?

The $25 Wipe Warmer from Prince Lionheart has an EPA-approved anti-microbial additive to inhibit the growth of bacteria.

The warmer also has an “Ever-Fresh” system to keep wipes fresh “to soothe Baby’s delicate skin” and keeps wipes moist by an evaporation and condensation process.

Shush the baby

Pneo Baby Shusher

No, where not saying to keep the kid quiet with constant reprimand. Instead, the Baby Shusher “safely stops baby from crying with its rhythmic shush sound,” the maker Pneo says.

The battery-powered device “is a revolutionary new tool for parents using an ancient, but doctor-tested and approved technique to help soothe your fussy baby and get some much-needed sleep,” the company adds, “for both you and baby.”

It’s $35 here. (Affiliate link)
