Mama Milk Pops for Baby and Baby Mantra Products

Today I have two exciting things to share with y'all. First, I finally made Stella Mama Milk Pops for her to eat! These are simply frozen breastmilk popsicles that my little one loves to hold on to and gnaw and suck on. Great for teething pain and for babies that are starting solids and starting to hold on to and pick up foods. The easy peasy recipe is below along with another awesome giveaway!
Which brings me to the second exciting topic for today: Baby Mantra products! 
I was sent their products to try on my little ones {and myself} and seriously I am hooked!
These natural baby products are gentle and allergy tested. Even my Stella's sensitive skin did fine with all the Baby Mantra products we tried. 

Here's some info on the company and then scroll down for a
review of the products I tried. 

Baby Mantra was founded by Nupoor and Vinnie, two sisters committed to a natural and organic lifestyle. A deep appreciation for natural skin care was ingrained in them at a very young age as their mother relied greatly on the use of all-natural home-based remedies growing up. 

Made in the U.S.A from only top quality all-natural and organic ingredients, Baby Mantra hosts an entire product line of baby lotions, baby oils, Mommy Body butter, shampoo & body wash all tested and approved by Nupoor and her beautiful baby girls. These products safeguard baby soft skin by forming a natural barrier to lock in moisture and guarantee soft, supple, healthy skin for years to come.

Baby Mantra uses base oils such as avocado, jojoba, wheat germ, apricot kernel, and grapeseed oil. Their products calm sensitive baby skin and deeply nourish it with our toxin-free, naturally moisturizing and vitamin E rich ingredients.

Bath time is silly -and loud- time at our house.

Ava loves bubbles and she was so excited to use the Baby Mantra 3 in 1 Bubble Bath, Shampoo, and Wash. Until now I have always had problems finding a good quality bubble bath product for my toddler that isn't full of dyes, chemicals, and other scary ingredients. This bubble bath didn't get overly bubbly, which was fine with me, and didn't leave any sticky residue on the skin. Made with aloe vera and lavender it softened Ava's skin and calmed her down for bedtime. 
I used Baby Mantra Newborn Shampoo and Wash on Stella and really like how light and moisturizing it was. It is made with coconut oil {my fave} and aloe and leaves my babe squeaky clean with a light, fresh scent. 
I was super stoked to see Baby Mantra makes a Detangling Conditioner with shea butter. Ava has thick hair that is constantly knotted and sticky, no surprise there since she's a rowdy toddler, right? But I have yet to find a good conditioner for her- until now! We use this conditioner during every bath and I'll admit I have borrowed it for my shower too! It makes her mane not only manageable but soft and silky! Now after the bath I no longer have to fight with tangles galore when I comb her hair. 

That pic above is my silly girl with her new favorite product.
 I told her to smile and that's what I got! 
Beggars can't be choosers, folks. 
At least she slowed down for 2 seconds for me to snap a pic!

Bedtime is quiet and relaxing time in our house.

We go through a lot of lotion with 2 girls and I have always used organic brands since Ava was born.
I have tried quite a few and most are pretty thick and hard to rub in. 
That was my favorite thing about the Baby Mantra Calming Lotion. It is super lightweight and glides right onto baby's skin and absorbs easily with no greasy feeling. It has a faint lavender aroma which smells so sweet on my little ones and helps them to relax too.  
Baby Mantra Diaper Rash Ointment seems to be another winner.
We don't use this product every day but the few times I have I like to feel and smell of it {it includes Almond Oil and Rosemary}. It helps calm the irritation and my kid's were redness free in no time! 

Baby Mantra Calming Massage Oi is the only product I have yet to try on my little ones. Most times I end up massaging Stella with lotion and I keep forgetting to try the oil!
 Blame it on Mommy Brain! 
The oil includes the essence of Avocado, Apricot, Grape seed, & Jojoba so it sounds fantastic and I can't wait to add it to the girls' bedtime routine! 

Thank you Baby Mantra for creating these amazing natural products for our little ones!

Mama Milk Pops

Ingredients:

  • Breast milk, pumped {or if 1 or older you can use milk}
  • cleaned Ring Pop holders {break off or eat the candy}
  • bottle nipples and lids

Directions:

  1. Place the nipple in the bottle lid so it is standing upright.
  2. Pour breast milk into the bottle nipple to almost the top. The amount needed will depend on nipple size but I will say around 1/2 oz or so. Also try to use a nipple that does not have a large opening so the milk stays in and doesn't leak out. I used Medela brand.
  3. Once you have filled all your nipples, place in a freezer safe container where they can fit snugly and stand upright. I used a plastic bin.
  4. Place clean ring pop bottoms in each nipple, with the ring part facing up.
  5. Put container in the freezer until milk pops are set, about 2-3 hours.
  6. Remove from the freezer one at a time, gently twist and remove from the lid and give to your baby. 
*Be sure to supervise. Once they start to melt they will get a little messy and may fall off the ring pop.
We got a handful of Ring Pops for Halloween so I loved the idea of using them up 
{discarding the candy first} and making pops for my baby. 
I had a variety of bottle nipples I don't use so I experimented with what would work best. 
Obviously smaller nipples with small/tiny openings don't leak as much.
I ended up using Medela brand nipples. 
Place the nipples in the bottle lid so they stand upright.
Fill almost to the top with breast milk.
Place clean ring pop bottoms in each nipple, with the ring part facing up.
Once you have filled all your nipples, place in a freezer safe container 
where they can fit snugly and stand upright. I used a plastic bin.
*You can see how some start to leak. If you keep upright and
 place in the freezer rather quickly not too much will leak. 
Put container in the freezer until milk pops are set, about 2-3 hours.
Remove from the freezer one at a time, 
gently twist and remove from the lid and give to your baby. 
This was Stella's face when she first saw her Mama Milk Pop! 
This kid cracks me up. She loves food!
Learning hand and eye coordination is important for babies that are just starting solids like Stella. 
These Pops are perfect for that.
Feeling the cold pop was fun for Stella too.
But eating it was the best part!
She may get a little messy but it's worth the excitement 
she will have to try a new thing!

I was sent these products for testing purposes. All opinions are my own.

  10. Babies are otherworldly, yet even the best conjurers need to think. Babies are truly magnificent, with a wide range of awesome frameworks set up to sort out supplements and fabricate the segments of life. When they've made their fantastic presentation, the vast majority of these frameworks are set up and prepared to go.

  11. Making your own child nourishment at home will bring about time and cash investment funds, and give your infant the most beneficial decision for sustenance. It doesn't need to be a terrifying secret. Making infant sustenance is simple and extremely economical.

  12. This is a very unique product made by the baby mantra company and I see all their products are something different from the other baby product manufacturing companies. Mom milk is the best food for the little toddlers up to the age 3 or more. And this mama milk pops which is nothing but the breast milk popsicles are definitely going to love by these little kids. And one more thing, if the mom is outside the home without the baby, then she can keep the milk pop in the home and the babysitter can easily feed the baby!

  13. Mothers who breastfeed needn't worry too much about contaminated milk. Provided the mother is healthy and bathes each day, the breast milk she gives her baby will always be fresh and, most importantly, contain her own anti-bodies that ward off germs.
