HDN USDA Organic Seal(1)

It was way too easy to let myself be lax about my health during my pregnancy. Here I am 1 week postpartum, and all I can think about is how I am going to make my way back to a healthy lifestyle.

Johnson’s Cocoa & Shea Butter Baby Oil(s) review!

Even though my daughter is turning two, I love using Johnsons Baby oils on her skin. Nothing else seems to help her retain her baby softness as well as Johnson’s.
