{Earth Mama Angel Baby} Review & GIVEAWAY! *CLOSED*


Earth Mama Angel Baby is a company that specializes in natural, herbal skin and body care products for both mama and baby. I especially love that they have mama covered from every aspect of expecting a baby - from pregnancy to labor to postpartum and even to the loss of a baby, Earth Mama Angel Baby (EMAB) has all the products you need to make each transition a bit more easy on you.

Additionally, their products contain only certified organic or organically grown herbs and oils and are toxin-free, cruelty-free, vegan and void of any artificial dyes, preservatives or fragrances. And even more impressive is that every single one of their products rates a "0" for toxins on the Skin Deep database. What's most impressive about this is that no other pregnancy and baby care company can make that claim! {Check the toxicity of your own products you use at home now by visiting here! You'll probably be really surprised with how toxic "safe" items are!}. Their packaging is also eco-friendly, recyclable or reusable - just one more aspect to love about Earth Mama Angel Baby.

So I recently received EMAB's Breastfeeding Support Kit, which includes their "Bosom Buddies," "Organic Milkmaid Tea," "Booby Tubes," and "Natural Nipple Butter." Now, I had breastfed my firstborn, as well, and remembered how awful those first couple weeks were, as I experienced sore, cracked, bleeding nipples. Simply excruciating {and I know you know what I'm talking about if you've been there before!}. So I was really excited to get this package in time to start nursing our secondborn.

The first item I tried was the "Natural Nipple Butter." It worked like a charm to immediately soothe right after a feeding. And what I really love about this stuff is that it is pretty much scent-free (unless you stick your nose in there, and even then, it has a faint hint of olive oil and mango butter, in my opinion), completely natural and glides on really smoothly. It isn't thick at all, so you can put a very small amount on, and just barely rub onto the nipple. This is a huge advantage over other nipple creams I've experienced that are much thicker and must be applied with more force, which is just not what you want to be using on sore nipples! And, of course, no need to rub the nipple butter off before feeding baby - very convenient.

Next up was the "Bosom Buddies." These are EMAB's organic breast compresses to help soothe sore, achy nipples. In my own words, it's essentially tea bags for your breasts. In fact, "Bosom Buddies" has organic herbs, cabbage leaves and black tea in its mix! The jar comes with 2 muslin bags, and you simply fill the bags with the herbal blend, steep in hot water for 5 minutes, and you're all set to go! I've tried just one round of it so far, and it really had a soothing, calming effect. I would suggest trying this out right after a feeding, as the warmth of them could signal your breasts to let down your milk, as happened with me.

Included in the EMAB Breastfeeding Support Kit also is the "Organic Milkmaid Tea," which is a caffeine-free tea for mama. The concept behind this tea blend is that if your milk production is down and needs a little best, this stuff is your ticket. It's made of 100% organic herbs and has a slight licorice taste (due to the fennel seed). While I haven't had any problems with low milk production yet, I did taste it, and I really enjoyed it. And I must confess that I'm NOT a fan of the taste of (black) licorice, so was a little hesitant before trying. I'm please to report, however, that I actually like the tea - it really is just a hint of the licorice flavor, so if you're like me and don't like that particular taste - have no worries. You'll be fine with this tea's flavor. And the added bonus with this tea is that not only will it help support healthy milk production, but it's packed with minerals and vitamins that are just good for mama in general.

And last, but certainly not least in the kit is Earth Mama Angel Baby's "Booby Tubes." Cute little name, eh? I have to say first that I really love the design of these breast packs! They are designed as a double-tubed coil that covers the vast majority of your breast except for the nipples. The "Booby Tubes" are gel-free and both microwavable and freezable for extra versatility. Use warm to encourage milk flow, help prevent clogged milk ducts, help heal mastitis (breast infection) and stimulate milk let-down. Store in the freeze and use cold to help reduce breast swelling and engorgement or to comfort breasts when you decide to start weaning. These are such a fabulous product, I must say! The versatility alone is worth the purchase of this product. And they truly work. My tender breasts were immediately relieved once the cold tubes were placed on them. And a happier mama means healthier milk production, which means a happier baby. You can't go wrong there.

In addition to the aforementioned products included in the Breastfeeding Support Kit, Earth Mama Angel Baby also offers the "No More Milk Tea" to help reduce your milk production when you're starting to wean or stopping breastfeeding altogether. And with each purchase of their Breastfeeding Support Kit, EMAB donates a portion of its proceeds to the Best for Babes Foundation to help moms and babies successfully nurse.

In conclusion, this kit is a great find and would make for a fantastic gift for any breastfeeding mama out there! {I know I'm so thanks I have mind on hand now!} But if there were just one product I could get from the entire Breast Kit, it would be the "Natural Nipple Butter." It comes ready to use and is really a step up from other nipple creams I've seen in that it doesn't contact lanolin and glides on sooo smoothly, not to mention its lack over overbearing scents. And if mama doesn't breastfeed, be sure to check out the other products from EMAB for pregnancy, labor ease, postpartum recovery & baby care.
