growing up wild review + exclusive discount code

Ethan recently had the opportunity to review an outfit from Growing Up Wild, a fantastic organic clothing shop for babies! Kelly, the owner of Growing Up Wild, happens to make the cutest baby clothes I think I've ever seen! The fact that all of her items are so good for the environment and your baby make them even greater. I had the toughest time deciding which outfit we should go with but ended up deciding on an adorable octopus onesie and matching crib shoes.

Go ahead, take a second to recover from the cuteness. I know, it's so cute it's nearly overwhelming!

Where do I begin to describe my absolute love for this outfit and store in general? The organic material is so light and airy, making it extremely breathable in the hot Florida weather. The oh-so-adorable octopus design is one of a kind...literally! Kelly of Growing Up Wild draws each design free hand so they all vary slightly. That little bit of personal touch is something that I love about Growing Up Wild! Everything from her shop is made with love and different from the one before it. As I mentioned, the onesie itself is made from organic cotton. The onesies are so soft and gentle against baby's skin! Even the onesie snaps are nickel free to avoid any potential allergic reactions with your little one. You're able to choose long sleeves or short sleeves and we, obviously, chose short sleeves to get us through this Florida summer! Not only did the onesie come soft and cuddly, but it smelled fantastic as well. All of the clothing from Growing Up Wild come pre-washed in all-natural, non-toxic soap and arrive ready to wear! As I was dressing Ethan, I also noticed that the tag was ironed in instead of being an actual tag. This is something I'm so grateful for as clothing tags can be so irritating on the back of baby's neck.

The crib shoes were too cute for words and I was so surprised and pleased to learn they are able to grow with baby. They have elastic in them that you're able to pull tighter or let out to fit baby's growing feet and ankles. I'm excited to know that Ethan will be able to wear these shoes for some time as he grows since they can be let out to grow along with him! The shoes, too, are made with GOTS certified organic cotton and eco felt soles from recycled plastic bottles. The lining is made from organic sweatshirt fleece, making the shoes so soft and cozy on Ethan's little feet. They, too, are made by hand and with lots of love.

  2. Hey!

    I love reading your blog. There is a topic though that I haven’t seen covered yet (sorry if I was out of town while you posted it). But I was wondering if you could post about saving cord blood. I’m still trying to decide if its a good idea. I’m using this site for most of my info: http://www.publiccordbloodbanks.org/ , I’d like to hear some real life advise though.

    At the very least I intend on donating. Just thought I’d float the idea by you for a post.
