3 Eco-Friendly Heart Felt Gifts for New Moms #MPMHGG

*Disclosure:  I received complimentary products for the purpose of this review.  All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.*

As a mom, it is sometimes hard to decide what products are actually useful.  Having just had my third baby, there are a few products that I have found extremely necessary that also make great gifts for new moms.  One of these products is a quality baby wrap.  When Heart Felt sent me a package of products containing a baby wrap, wool dryer balls and reusable food pouches, I couldn’t wait to try out this new wrap.  I *may* be a baby carrier addict and I just may have a good selection of different carriers.

Heart FeltOn any outing or just when I need to get things done, wearing Henry in the wrap has been a lifesaver.  While there is a bit of a learning curve when first starting out with wraps, once you figure it out, it only takes seconds to safely and snugly wrap baby.  Especially during cold and flu season, I love being able to keep my newborn out of the grabby hands of strangers.  Made from 95% organic cotton, providing a little stretch, yet stays incredibly strong.  The Heart Felt baby wrap is made for preemies up to roughly 39 pounds.  Here is Henry weighing in at about 8 pounds.  Wraps are so awesome, especially in the early days because they allow you to have plenty of skin to skin contact without being stuck sitting there feeling naked.  If there is ever an absolute must have for new parents, baby wraps are it!  Give the new mom in your life the gift of free hands and baby snuggles.

Heart FeltWe also received a set of 4 extra large, premium quality wool dryer balls with an organic cotton gift bag.  Wool dryer balls are great to have because they can shorten drying time, eliminate static, and soften your laundry all without the use of harsh chemicals that traditional dryer sheets have.  The Heart Felt wool dryer balls are made with pure New Zealand wool all the way to the core and will last up to 1500+ loads of laundry.  If you find you want the natural scent on your dryer balls, simply add a few drops of your favorite essential oils like lavender or tea tree.  By using our dryer balls, we were able to reduce our drying time by about 25% making these an even more eco-friendly option.  The only downside I have ever found to using wool dryer balls is that they can get wrapped up in your laundry or the dog tries to steal them.  If you use cloth diapers like we do, these are okay to use with your diaper laundry and all of the rest of your laundry without leaving a residue on your laundry.  These wool dryer balls are quiet as opposed to plastic or rubber dryer balls.

Heart FeltThe third item we received is a set of 5 SquishDelish reusable food pouches.  With the large 6 ounce pouches, the Squish Delish pouches can serve as a meal or a snack.  They are perfect for your kids {or even you} for take along yogurt or homemade smoothies.  Because of the design, these pouches can stand alone making them easy to fill, while the zip top keeps the food in, without worry of oozing food while it is packed.  While they are easy to fill with the wide top, they are also compatible with the Infantino Squeeze Station.  Cleanup is easy because not only are these pouches freezer safe, but they are also dishwasher safe without those tough to clean corners where the food gets stuck.  SquishDelish pouches eliminate the waste from using store bought pouches, as well as allowing for healthier snack and meal choices for your family.  Cut out the sugar and preservatives found in prepackaged food pouches.  Each pouch has a see through window on the back so you can see just how full {or empty} your food pouch is.  You can write what is in it and when you filled it, allowing you to fill all of your pouches for each weeks lunches ahead of time.
