Dr. Hana's Nasopure - Baby Comfy Nose

Proper nasal breathing is vital to your baby's comfort and health, as babies are obligate nose breathers and all of their oxygen supply is inhaled through the nose. At an age when their immune systems are so vulnerable, you want to avoid any opportunity for bacteria to take root, or unwanted mucus to block oxygen intake. 

Watch the video below to see how easy it is to keep your baby breathing freely.

Dr. Hana's Nasopure BabyComfyNose Nasal Aspirator
Nasopure Baby Comfy Nose is available at Ecobuns and our online store.

It is better to have one and not need it than to need one and not have one.

Uses for a Wet Bag that Don't Involve Cloth Diapers

A wet bag is a waterproof bag that is used to hold dirty/wet diapers until laundry day.  Wetbags are very underrated. They come in various sizes and a ton of fun patterns. They can do so much more than just hold dirty diapers.   

  • Toiletry Bag:  Pack your shampoo, lotion and other toiletries in a medium wet bag so if something does accidentally spill, your clothes in your suitcase stay dry.
  • Gift Bag: Wet bags provide the perfect gift bag for any baby shower or birthday party
  • Library Tote: Let each child bring their own wet bag to the library and have them fill up their bag with books for the week.
  • Clean Up Bag: At the end of the day, give each child a wetbag and have them fill it up with all the toys they have dragged out into the living room.  Make cleaning up a game and have fun with it!
  • Vomit Bag: Keep a wet bag in the car for kids with motion sickness.  It will be much easier to clean up!
  • Produce Bag:  Skip the plastic bags at the farmers market and grocery store.
  • Snack Bag:  Place snacks in one to avoid spills in your purse or bag.
  • Travel Laundry Bag: They make fantastic laundry bags while traveling, so that worn clothes don't get mixed back in with the fresh
  • Swim Bag: While at the beach, indoor pool or water park, I use my wet bag to keep my cell phone, purse, and keys water free.  
  • Un-paper towels: At EcoBuns we have made the switch from paper towels to cloth towels to dry your hands after washing.  We keep a wet bag in bathroom to hold the towels until wash time.  
  • Gym Bag: A wet bag is a great place to store sweaty, stinky workout clothes.
  • Wet Swim Suits: After a fun day at the beach or pool, a wet bag makes a great way to carry home wet swim suits and towels. 

Let us know if you have any other uses to add to the list!

Grandma El's Diaper Rash Cream

When you use cloth diapers, it is very important to pay attention to everything that goes onto the diapers.  We talk a lot about what detergent to use on your diapers, but something else to consider is what diaper creams you are using.  

If your baby develops a rash, you should only use a cloth diaper safe cream. Creams that contain zinc oxide create a water proof barrier that is intended to speed the healing process.  These creams are white and usually a sticky, gooey mess.  They are very hard to clean off of your baby, let alone your diapers.   They will not wash out of your diapers in the wash, and the waterproof barrier will cause your diapers to no longer absorb enough fluid to be effective.

The most popular diaper rash cream that we carry at EcoBuns is Grandma El's diaper rash remedy and Protection.  Grandma El's reduces the redness, pain, itching, and irritation caused by diaper rash.  It creates a breathable, softening, protective barrier which prevents wetness from coming into contact with the skin, therefore keeping baby comfortable. Best of all, the ingredients are all listed on the FDA GRAS (Generally Regarded as Sale) List and it will easily wash out of your diapers.  It is also Hypo-Allergenic so you can be sure that your baby is getting the safest treatment

Grandma El's Diaper Rash Remedy and Protection not only works as a great diaper rash cream!  You can also use it for:

  • Cradle Cap
  • Chapped Cheeks
  • Sunburn
  • Dry Nose
  • Eczema
  • Cracked Heels
  • Cuticles
  • Rough Elbows
  • Heat Rash
  • Stretch-mark Reduction
  • Cold Sores
  • Razor Burn
  • Chapped Lips
  • Cuts & Scrapes
  • Burns
  • Softening Calluses
  • Scar Reduction
  • Dry Patches
