I want to do another shout out to my April Sponsors. Some of them have deals they are offering right now. And some of them are deserving of your attention for other reasons. Today I’m here to tell you of one, or a few, good reasons to check them out.

Environmental and Social Responsibility
Maggie’s Soapnuts are the only laundry soap that grows on trees. Therefore, they are 100% biodegradable, perfect for washing delicates, like baby clothes and lingerie and hypoallergenic. If you are sick of laundry soaps that make your skin itch and eyes water, then you should check out Maggie’s Soapnuts.
Did you know that LuSa Organics donates 10% of its profits each year to organizations like Sow The Seeds and La Leche League International? I don’t know about you, but this kind of integrity and social responsibility is what keeps me coming back to a company. I did a review of some of LuSa Organics products last year. To read my review of their sweet smelling organic baby and body care products, go here. They also have a darn good blog called Clean. It’s pretty and smells good and if you like nice photographs, home birthing, homeschooling and radical mommies, you should check it out.
Curly Monkey screenprints organic cotton baby wear and accessories. Their top seller is the Tree of Life. I can see why. I want one and I don’t even have a baby! (Psst – it’s a placenta print!)
Child Organics sells a number of different kinds of products. From unique baby wearing jackets for moms and gorgeous Storchenwiege Baby Slings to merino wool diaper covers, natural Waldorf dolls, wooden toys, clothes and organic bedding, your natural parenting needs can all be met here.
Momzelle Nursing Wear, my longtime sponsor and just in case you missed it, recent guest on the CBC television show Dragon’s Den where co-owner Christine sealed a deal allowing her and her co-owner brother to grow their organic cotton nursing shirt business even further. One thing I love about Momzelle Nursing Wear (and I do love quite a few things about them) is their website page entitled “I want to breastfeed, help me!” where they share pages of La Leche League and Jack Newman resources with customers. To read a review I did for them last year go here.
MilkFace is a Canadian company that specializes in nursing wear (dresses, pj’s, and tops), accessories (breastfeeding books, diaper bags and pumps, etc) and baby carriers. And I’m serious when I say they have tons of designs and styles to choose from! If I were still in my baby wearing days I’d be interested in trying out this one called the Chimparoo. Isn’t it gorgeous? Like a Maya Wrap and a Moby all rolled into one.
Do you have an iPhone? I wish I did. iRingPro has the coolest ring tones made especially for professionals. Subtle. Sophisticated. Elegant. According to one of their endorsments, “iRingPro has fused art, function, and social etiquette into one cool must-have option for any high-tech professional.” In addition, iRingPro supports an organization called Children of Nepal by donating a portion of each sale to them.
I absolutely love having sponsors who are the types of people and businesses who are not only breastfeeding friendly but who do good things for others. Please show my April sponsors some love by checking out their sites. I’d love to hear if you end up buying anything or if you further end up recommending them. And remember, every time you buy from one of these businesses you are helping to support the breastfeeding cause. Peace.
