A Hot Sling for A Hot Mama

large.jpgThe Hotsling is the first and only pouch sling that I have ever purchased, and I love it. Not only does it do a great job of hiding my post-pregnancy belly, but it’s also super easy to use. Just slip it over your head, drop your baby inside, and off you go! Because it’s sized to fit, you don’t have to learn how to wrap it or adjust it so it’s a great beginner sling. Hotslings come in a lot of great prints, but I have to give it up for the undyed, unbleached hemp/organic cotton Hotsling. It’s machine washable, sweatshop-free, made in the U.S.A., fits easily in your diaper bag and hides your belly flab! If that’s not hot, I don’t know what is.

Some Hemp for Your Head

hemp-bath-pillow3-actual.jpgIf you’re anything like me you’ll agree that a bath isn’t relaxing unless it includes a good pillow to rest your head on as you soak up those precious minutes of solitude. I recently tried out a hemp bath pillow, gifted to me by my husband, and found it to be a very welcome addition to my soaks in the tub, few and far between as they may be.

Because hemp is naturally resistant to most molds (as well as insects and other pests), you won’t have to worry about anything funky growing on it. Hemp is also the most environmentally positive of crops, one that actually leaves the soil in improved condition.

Now if I could only find the time to sneak off into the tub more often, I’d be all set.
