It’s no secret that I LOVE MD Moms baby care products. In fact, two of their items are in my “Lena-Approved Hall of Fame”- Baby Silk Soothing Bottom Relief (my miracle cream) and Baby Silk Gentle Scalp Rub (THE cradle crap solution). The entire line gets my full endorsement and then some.
So I’m pretty darned happy to share the following tidbits with y’all…
“Fans of MD Moms award-winning Babysafe Sunscreen Towelettes can now find the same lightweight SPF 30+ sunscreen in a fragrance- and paraben-free lotion. The Daily UV Shield 30+ Moisturizing Lotion is a dual-purpose lotion designed for daily use that keeps skin nourished and soothed while providing complete protection from UV rays.
Developed for babies and children of all ages, the broad-spectrum SPF 30+ lotion contains titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, which are recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics as safest for young infants. These pure physical block ingredients offer the safest protection with the least potential for skin irritation. A blend of marine silk, aloe and vitamins E and B5 also work together to provide antioxidant protection, soothe sensitive or irritated skin and relieve dryness. The lotion is clinically tested, certified hypoallergenic and free of parabens, phthalates and fragrance.”
Yes! Yes! Yes! I’ve been waiting for MD Moms to introduce a sun protection lotion – as much as I love the sunscreen towelettes, sometimes it’s nice to reapply just where you need it most. And I’ve just about had it with rashes, redness and irritation from other “kid-friendly” sunscreens – MD Moms Babysafe products are the ONLY ones that Ryder does not react to. The lotion will be available in January 2011 – can’t wait!
Just in time for the holidays, I’m also loving MD Moms’ Silky Smooth Baby Gift Set. This collection of essentials from MD Moms Baby Silk line (the first pediatrician-developed personal care line for babies) keeps baby silky smooth from nose to toes. The gift set includes Daily Skin Protection Moisturizing Balm, Soothing Bottom Relief Diaper Rash Cream and Delicate Skin Comfort Silky Liquid Powder. All items come in a reusable keepsake box.
I’ll tell you this – if I was a new mom, or a mom-to-be, I would be VERY happy with this gift set. It contains three of their most popular items, all designed to provide maximum antioxidant protection, relieve dryness, soothe sensitive or irritated skin, promote healing and protect the skin’s natural moisture barrier. BLISS for baby, indeed.
Finally, yet another reason to love the Moms? They give back!
“Dedicated to improving the health and well being of children, MD Moms will designate a portion of its sales for 2011 to the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Los Angeles (EFGLA) Care & Cure for Children. MD Moms selects a children’s charity to work with each year.
The Care & Cure Initiatives work to improve access to specialty care in pediatric epilepsy and to pursue research for childhood epilepsy cures. In the U.S., epilepsy is the third most common neurological disorder after Alzheimer’s disease and stroke, affecting about 3 million people. Of those, more than 300,000 are children under the age of 15.
“EFGLA’s Care & Cure and MD Moms have a common goal to improve the lives of children,” said Susan Pietsch-Escueta, executive director of the EFGLA. “We’re thrilled to partner with MD Moms in 2011 to work to change the course of this disorder for the children who suffer from it.”
