Heather's Naturals Heavenly Hush Review

I was given the opportunity to try out a new amazing bath product! Heather's Naturals Heavenly Hush is a blend of lavender essential oils and oatmeal. It leaves your child's skin soft and has a wonderful scent to it! When I first got the package the smell of lavender was powerful. I was a little worried it would be too strong (I don't like too many scents especially strong ones) but it wasn't strong once I added it to the bath. 
The directions say to add one teaspoon to the bath water and let it dissolve. I added one teaspoon but I couldn't smell anything so I ended up adding one tablespoon instead. The oatmeal never fully dissolved, however there were only small pieces left in the bath.
My son loves it! He likes to try to pick up the little bits of oatmeal and splashes around a ton. I really like this product and would recommend it to everyone! I thought it would leave more of a scent on him but it didn't. I was kind of hoping the lavender would help calm him for bedtime but nothing calms him down before bedtime. (He's always a very hyper, active boy.) The only thing I wasn't too fond of was that it left a few little bits of oatmeal (very small) in his hair. His hair is kind of long but it brushed out and wasn't a problem. I really love this product and will continue to use it at every bath!

Thirsties Duo Fab Fitted Review and Giveaway (Sponsored by All About Baby Boutique)

All About Baby Boutique asked me to review a Thirsties Fab Fitted and I gladly accepted. I have heard great things about these diapers. I received a size 2 (which fits 18-40 pounds). The outside of the diaper is a super soft cotton velour. The inside is mircofleece which is a stay dry material. The soaker is microfiber topped with mircofleece. 
Here is a picture of it snapped down on the smallest setting. 

Here it is on the largest setting all the way unsnapped. 

The inside!

A side view of the inside. You can see that the soaker is not fully attached. I love this feature because that means it dries faster and it's easier to add an additional insert!

My son has the rise snapped down all the way. He is about 25 pounds (I am totally guessing. I actually have no clue, but he's pretty small).

This diaper is SO absorbent. I love this diaper. I'm mostly an All In One kind of girl but we do have a few fitteds. This one is by far the most absorbent one we own. I love that there are two sizes to choose from and it's not your standard One Size diaper. We never get a good fit with our OS diapers but we got a perfect fit with this diaper! It is a little bulky but it doesn't bother me or my son.
I'm very confident that this diaper would be great for nights too! If you added a really great hemp insert under the opening and paired it with a great wool cover, it would be bullet proof!
Want to buy it? The awesome Thirsties fitted is only $17! Buy it here.
