About Lifearound2angels:

It all began with a mom simply trying to make some fun bath bombs for her 2 girls without the harsh and unknown ingredients other stores offer. Her girls take bath everyday and they won’t go to bed unless they have their fun bath time.
Then she tried to sell her bath bombs online, not sure if anybody would like them. Before she knew it, there were tons people supporting her and loving her creations. Many have told her they broke up with LUSH because they tried her bath bombs =p That was her biggest assurance and motivation.

The Company

simple goal – ‘We Do What Is Right’

At Lifearound2angels, everything is done with the idea of ‘Do the right thing, do what is right for everyone’.
Today, their products are the best sellers in many markets, but everything is still made as if it was the very first time she made them for her 2 girls.

First Time Mom – Baby Wearing Using a Wrap

So many new things to learn as a new mom and this officially marks the end of my fourth trimester! Having Niko has been amazing and learning so much with him has given me the confidence to be a good mom.  One of the best things for Niko and I is babywearing. Babywearing reduces crying by 40% and is way easier than just carrying the baby. So I really took it upon myself to learn all about babywearing.

The first type of wearing I did was with the traditional wrap style. It is a bit intimidating in the beginning with this super long cloth and how it works but if you practice a few times and you can get it right. There are 3 main types I tried so far and here are some insider tips I didn’t find anywhere on Pinterest or IG but only in doing it myself.

There are so many brands and price and designs out there but for the sake of this post, the JERSEY one I used is the Cuddly Wrap – Made in Canada. It is 100% organic cotton but it does have some stretch to it. It is longer than the Moby and it is a bit harder to go around and around your waist. But the stretch helps it keep the baby comfy.

The Cotton one I used it Moby wrap. It is thicker with not much stretch and I found this one sometimes got too hot. That when I took Niko out, my belly and his will be wet from sweat. I think Moby is the most classic one and I think the density will be great for colder days.

The Bamboo one is Beluga Baby – Made in Canada. This one is super-super stretchy and I found Niko drooping down as we walked. The trick to this one is to really stretch the fabric over your shoulder before inserting it. And to start at your chest instead of the belly like the others. I love this one for summer days since it is breathable but it is really stretchy so a lot of bounce when walking.

Wrapping is one of the fasting ways for baby to fall asleep. When we are walking Cami, Niko almost always instantly falls asleep.  I also wore him to sleep at the beginning of our co-sleeping so he won’t fall off or slide off. It worked really well and now he can sleep beside me without being on me!

Also! I tried a Ring Sling! I had it professionally sewn using a Pinterest DIY post and my own Money Fabric! I haven’t mastered the ring sling yet but more to come!

Your hair is unique. Shouldn’t your conditioner be, too? I wanted to be one of the first to tell you about Dove’s NEW UltraCare collection, the brand’s first-ever customized conditioner series.

Available in three different formats (a foam, milk gel and crème!) and formulated with our patented Micro-Conditioning Complex, it’s designed to deliver the right level of nourishment that truly gets your hair. Providing a whole new way to choose the right levels of nourishment for your hair type, it’ll leave your hair nourishedhealthy looking and cared for.

Postpartum hair loss is real! I have been finding my hair everywhere – in the shower, on the ground, in the car and all over the house. Using Dove Milk Gel Conditioner has helped get most of it out in the shower before I put my hair into mom braids. Excited to try the foam and creme next!

As a new mom, I just want to look presentable – and showers are between naps, feeding and diaper changes have to be fast and effective before the baby wonders where you are and starts crying again!
