Lalabye Baby Exclusives for FALL 2016!

Lalabye Baby Exclusives for FALL 2016!

If you have followed our store for ANY length of time whatsoever you know that there are a few brands that we are OBSESSED with.  One of them is Lalabye Baby.  True Fact here, GreenPath Baby was Lalabye Baby's first-ever retailer and we have continued to love them ever since.  Every once in a while we release custom embroidery diapers to celebrate a season, and this month with back to school we have been feeling Fall-sy.  So we wanted to do not one but TWO Lalabye embroidery diapers.  We first released the Lalabye Baby Exclusive Fall Kittens.  Featuring not one, but TWO baby kittens this was an easy choice for our customs.

Lalabye Baby Fall Exclusive Diaper Fall Kittens

Our second exclusive was the Antler and Feathers.  I really LOVE this design.  It's very fall and at the same time super contemporary and hip.  The two also compliment each other and would look amazing under Halloween costumes.  Just imagine these gorgeous designs peeking out from underneath their little outfits!  The Antler and Feathers Lalabye Exclusive is a plum/purple snap with an orange diaper (Jack Be Nimble).

The pictures above are photoshop mock-ups, not pictures of the real diapers.  Since we decided to go ahead with these designs we opened them up for Lalabye Fans and for GreenPath Baby Exclusive Chat members first.  Once we have pictures, we will post on this blog for you guys to see how beautiful they are!  Here is a picture of the embroidered fall diaper we did last year!

Lalabye Baby and GreenPath Baby Exclusive Foxy Fall

This one, named Foxy Fall was a HUGE hit, and we just loved getting pictures like this!  Pics that show baby using these gorgeousness for pictures and in their real day-to-day lives!  How amazing!  We can't wait to see the beautiful pictures of these TWO new Fall designs!!

Funky Fluff Katniss Release!

Funky Fluff Katniss Release!

Funky Fluff Katniss
It's been a while since we've been so excited about a diaper here at GreenPath Baby!  Funky Fluff is one of our favorite Canadian diaper companies.  Every single design they release is nothing short of exceptional and we like it that way!  Nothing but the best for our baby's bum!  Katniss is the new Funky Fluff release and as you may have guessed, it is named after the archer Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games Trilogy.  I absolutely love this concept and also love how the soft spring colors contrast with the straight arrow shapes, such a great print and juxtaposition of soft colors and hard lines.  Katniss is available is all 3 Funky Fluff diaper systems, bamboo, athletic wicking jersey, and stay dry, so no matter which diaper system you love you will be able to get it in Katniss. Funky Fluff Katniss ClutchThe other thing I love with this release is the *NEW* diaper clutch.  Measuring at only 9 inches wide x 8.5 inches tall, this bag is PERFECT for your accessories, make-up, extra diaper inserts or anything else that you might not want to store in a full size wetbag.  The diaper clutch also comes in Razzleberry, Mint to Be and Sweet Coraline.  And if you love Katniss as much as I do, you'll probably want to get the entire collection, in the awesome hanging pail, and double-pocket wet bag.  And for you guys that are in the know, we are offering FREE SHIPPING (US only) on the release day of 4/22/16.  So if you love fast, free shipping and an awesome new Funky Fluff print, this one is for you mama!  Use code: FUNKYSHIP

Battling the Yeast Beast; A Journal

Battling the Yeast Beast; A Journal

Cloth Diapers and Yeast
My little guy has been cloth diapered for a long time now. I thought I was one of the lucky few who escaped it: the dreaded yeast. I am so methodical with my cloth diapers and am so attuned to baby's sensitive skin. Well, last week as I was getting him ready for bed I saw it. Little red irritated bumps everywhere! I knew immediately what those evil little bumps meant: Yeast. Dang it. I texted Maggie (my neighbor and fellow CD obsessed momma). Even though I technically knew how to handle yeast, up until this point I have not had it myself, so I needed the support. I also called the pediatrician for good measure. The Ped recommend Lotramin and Maggie suggested a mix of 10 drops of Grapefruit Seed Extract mixed with water in a 4oz spray bottle.  She recommended spraying it on the baby's bottom with every single diaper change.  She also recommended lots of air drying time, and of course, disposable diapers.  All of my cloth needed to be disinfected (see recipe for disinfecting yeasty cloth diapers at the end of the post!).   I had hubby run out and buy me a pack of sposies and so started our journey.  When I woke up the next morning his bum looked much much better. What a relief!  I alternated between using the Lotramin and the GSE, unfortunately, it took a few days for the bumps to disappear.  I thought I was out of the woods and started cloth diapering him again.  Within a day the bumps were back.  This time I took him to the Ped's office.  She confirmed it, his yeast rash had not gone away completely...tricky little beast.  She prescribed some medicine which I used, and within a week, the bumps were still there...no change.  So I started getting aggressive.  I used the prescription, the GSE, and I continued to use the Lotramin sporadicaly, and he was starting to look better-except for one little spot, right where his legs met his torso.  It was really badly irritated, but it didn't look like yeast.  It turns out he has an allergy to sposies.  Remember I said he has been cloth diapered pretty much all of his life?  Well, this has been the longest he had ever been exposed to disposable diapers, and let's just say his skin didn't react very well to it.  So now I had two conundrums:  yeast and allergic reaction.  So, I once again disinfected all of my cloth diapers and decided to not wear disposables anymore.  This meant that I had to dissinfect my cloth diapers with every single wash, so about every 2-3 days.  I also had to protect the diapers from all of the medicine, cream and the extract.  So I used fleece liners to create a barrier between the diapers and all of the stuff going on with the baby.  Fortunatly, the process worked well for us.  Within a day of using the cloth, his irritation to the disposables cleared up.  He still had yeast which we continued to treat.  Eventually that went away too!  Battling the Yeast Beast took a total of 3 weeks for us, but I am glad to say that his skin is back to normal and healthy on all fronts!  Have you ever battled with yeast? 

How to Disinfect Yeasty Cloth Diapers (for regular washing machines):
  • Wash cloth diapers if they are soiled.  Make sure you start this process with clean diapers.
  • Wash the diapers in hot water with detergent and 30 drops of grapefruit seed extract (GSE) along with 10 drops of tea tree oil.
  • While the water is filling up on your washing machine, mix in a pot of boiling water into the laundry. 
  • Do an extra cold rinse (in addition to the rinse at the end of a wash cycle).
  • Dry in the dryer on low heat, better yet, dry in direct sunlight which also helps to eliminate yeast.  
Spray Bottle Mix 
  • 4oz spray bottle.
  • 4oz of water
  • 10 drops of grapefruit seed extract (GSE).
  • Spray on affected area with every diaper change.

Goodbye Teething...Hello Sleep!!!!

Goodbye Teething...Hello Sleep!!!!

Baby Teething

If you haven't slept in a few nights because of teething pain you NEED to read this!  Teething is one of the most challenging and painful times is a baby's young life and there is nothing worst for a mama than to see her baby in pain.  Teething can start at a very, very young age.  My little boy had his two front teeth at four months!  Excessive drooling, irritability, gumming objects including hands and fingers are all signs that your baby might be in the thick of it when it comes to teething.  We have compiled a list of everything you'll need to combat teething, soothe baby and have a good night's rest!

#1  Hosie Naturals Teething Cheek Balm
The Hosie Naturals Teething cheek balm is a miracle worker!  It calms fussy babies and helps them settle down at night or for a nap!  Made with Arnica and Clove oil, this teething balm does not need to be ingested (which is my favorite part!).  Rub it on baby's cheeks just on top of where the teeth are coming out and voila!

#2 Baltic Amber Necklace
Baltic Amber has been used for ages to soothe minor pains, aches, and discomfort.  Best of all, it works wonders on teething babies!  Though we do not recommend wearing an Amber necklace around the neck to sleep, you can safely wrap one around baby's ankle and place a sock or footed pj's over the necklace so baby still gets the benefits of the amber but is not wearing something around their neck during sleep time.

#3 Teething Necklaces
I can't say enough about teething necklaces.  Babies love them...alot.  We love Little Teethers and Chewbeads which are made with FDA food grade silicone so it's gentle on baby's gum and emerging teeth so no worries about their poor little inflamed gums there!

Combine these three ingredients and bam!  You'll be sleeping in no time...(You can thank me later!).

BumGenius Sierpinski Release

BumGenius Sierpinski

At GreenPath Baby we ALWAYS look forward to a good release!  Cottonbabies, the makers of BumGenius, and Flips never seem to disappoint.  Some of my all-time favorite prints have been released by them, including Jules and Audrey.  For today's release, Cottonbabies chose to go with Sierpinski. Waclaw Sierpiński was a Polish mathematician known for his work on set theory, number theory and the theory of functions and topology. He delivered the first-ever lecture course on theory, and has published more than 700 papers and 50 books on this subject. Sierpinski has received numerous awards and recognitions for his contributions to mathematics. He has three well-known fractals in his honor, including the Sierpinski triangle. We are so happy to bring you this GORGEOUS mathematically inspired diaper! We love this addition to the genius series and absolutely love the use of some of the most loved BG colors such as Hummingbird, Grasshopper and Sassy.  Can't wait to see this beauty OTB!!!

GreenPath Baby Playdate Series

GreenPath Baby Playdate

Free Baby Playdate 0-12 Months:

Since GreenPath Baby first opened it's doors in 2012 we've seen the birth and growth of a ton of babies, and moms too!  For a while we met mamas (who have become great friends) who had no place to go and hang out with their newborn.   One of our goals as a store was always to build community among moms.  In the past year, we've hosted a TON of events at GreenPath Baby, but now with our NEW store we wanted to make it a recurring event.  So we decided that every week on Monday, we would schedule a playdate, free of charge!   Every Monday, before the store is officially open for the day, we are hosting our GreenPath Playdate so moms can hang, talk, and bond with other moms and babies.  We know that some of the friendships forged during this magical time lasts forever, so we wanted to encourage local mamas to take advantage of this opportunity as well as have a some time for babies to play with other babies.  We are starting the #greenpathplaydate series with young babies 0-12 months, and we will soon add a Toddler version of this playdate.  We hope to meet all of the new moms in Palm Beach Gardens and we look forward to spending this wonderful journey with you!

The First Baby Playdate Will Be:

Monday, December 14th at 10:00pm. 

The Address Is:

11701 Lake Victoria Gardens Ave, Suite 7108.  Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410.
