Daily Checklist for Kids

As kids grow older, they also grow more capable of doing little tasks around the house to make family life easier. It’s important for kids to have fun, play with friends, and explore their hobbies, but it’s just as important to teach them practical life skills. With the kids home for summer, there’s no better time to get started with an organized daily task routine. By using our Daily Checklist for Kids, you can pass some responsibilities onto your kids and give them the chance to confidently contribute to the household. How to Use the Daily Checklist for Kids: 1. Each time your child completes one of the 6 daily tasks, they check a box. You can print out multiple copies of the checklist so each child has their own set of daily tasks to complete. 2. Choose a Weekend Reward your child can work toward as they complete their daily tasks. (We provided a few examples!) 3. By the[…]

Organic Challenge Week 4: Household Items

Welcome to the fourth and final week of our Organic Challenge! This week, we’re focusing on some household item transitions that will dramatically cut down your exposure to toxic chemicals. Many of the chemicals found in the average home have been linked to allergies, birth defects, cancer, and psychological abnormalities. Just like the other Organic Challenge products, many of the chemicals listed below have never been adequately tested for negative health effects. For example, products that kill 50% of lab animals through ingestion or inhalation can still be designated “non-toxic.” The average home today contains 62 toxic chemicals. This is more than a chemistry lab at the turn of the century. We’re here to help you start removing these toxins from your home. Here are our 5 non-negotiable items to trade out to get you moving towards a healthier lifestyle. 1. Cookware Companies that sell cookware are notorious for marketing themselves as “safe” or “clean” when they aren’t. Cookware is[…]

Are You Up To Our Organic Challenge?

Have you been thinking about switching to a more organic and sustainable lifestyle, but are not sure where to start? Chemicals have made their way into our lives through the food we eat and the products that we use at alarming rates. There are more than 80,000 chemicals produced and used in the United States. Of those 80,000 chemicals, only 200 have been tested (which is less than 1%), and only five have been regulated to any standard. We understand the transition to a healthier lifestyle can be extremely overwhelming. Over the next four weeks, we are going to help guide you in making those healthy decisions that matter the most. We’re challenging you to transition four areas of your day to day life that are affected by chemicals, and give you our non-negotiable organic choices! Are you up to our organic challenge? Week 1: Organic Food May 6 – May 10 Week 2: Organic Beauty May 13 – May[…]

Will Our Crib Mattress Fit Your Crib?

Starting to shop for a crib mattress for your soon-to-arrive bundle of joy? When browsing, you may be surprised to find that from brand to brand cribs don’t just differ aesthetically. In fact, there is no set crib mattress size! If you have already purchased a crib, you can’t just blindly choose a mattress to accompany it. The number one thing to look for when choosing your child’s crib mattress is safety. So when choosing a crib mattress to safely fit inside your baby’s crib, look for a model that will pass the recommended two-finger measurement test between crib and mattress. We know we can’t pass this test for every crib with our crib mattress. But when designing our crib mattress, we do seek to fit in as many cribs as possible so your baby can have their safest, healthiest sleep. That’s why we look at the industry minimum and maximum sizes for cribs and crib mattresses and design our[…]

The Power of Green Cleaning in the Nursery

Guest Blog by Lisa Janvrin, YouthfulNest You wouldn’t think this to be true, but I believe the nursery is one of the most forgotten about places to clean on a regular basis. It’s probably because when you’re in there you’re either completely consumed by the task at hand or exhausted by the task at hand. Not leaving much time to think about cleaning it. HERE, THERE AND EVERYWHERE. Obviously, in the baby room there is the common dust and dirt that accumulate in any room, but there are also lots of unique substances that add to your clean-up duty like spit-up, breast milk, formula, feces, urine, snot, and even vomit. All of these can easily get spread around the room and make baby sick if they aren’t cleaned up properly with non-toxic products. For immediate needs, use those handy baby wipes, if their good enough for your baby’s bottom for sure they will be safe on your countertop. Then on[…]

The Naturepedic Organic Mattress Gallery Experience

As you know, there is a lot to consider when making a big purchase. And when we say “big” we’re talking about all of the more expensive adult purchases you make—car, house, etc. It’s all of the purchases that will help you live, grow, or build. We consider them investments. Think about it. When you buy a house, you’re investing in your future and the future of your family. A home is more than a roof over your head—it’s your safe haven. It’s where memories are built. When you purchase a car, you’re investing in your personal and professional well-being. When you purchase a mattress, you’re investing in your health. And we want to help you make the best investment possible. According to HelpGuide.org, the average adult (age 18-64) should be sleeping 7-9 hours every night. If you sleep an average of 8 hours per night, you’re spending 54 hours of your week in bed—that’s roughly 2,912 hours per year.[…]

Mattress Label: The Accurate Labeling Act

We understand our consumers. Most of the people who love the Naturepedic brand are health-conscious and appreciate transparency, especially when it comes to making purchases and our own mattress label. When we find information that could help our friends make the best possible decisions for their own families, we feel that it is our responsibility to share that information. It has been brought to our attention that a new bill will soon be voted on—The Accurate Labels Act (H.R. 6022.) The Accurate Labels Act is introduced and sponsored by Congressman Adam Kinzinger (R) – Ill. The Overview of the proposed bill states: To amend the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act to require that Federal and State mandated information declarations and labeling requirements applicable to the chemical composition of, and radiation emitted by, consumer products meet minimum scientific standards to deliver accurate and clear information, and for other purposes. At a time when consumers are demanding more transparency when it comes[…]
