5 Tips for Hosting a Healthy Baby Home Party

One of the perks of being in the  Generation Good community through Seventh Generation is the opportunity to host a Healthy Baby Home Party!  This is your chance to share the benefits of utilizing Seventh Generation home and baby products!  If you are selected to host a party, you will receive a free kit with everything you need for your gathering.

The kit contains lots of goodies from Healthy Child Healthy World, Bobble, Annie’s, Stonyfield, and of course  Seventh Generation.  So here are a few tips to get you started with your party!

  • Go to your Generation Good dashboard and look over everything that will be expected of you throughout the campaign.  This includes emailing out invitations, taking pictures, and posting on social media.

 

  • Decide on a location and time…then get your invitation list started.  It’s up to you if you would like kids to be present or not.  Some hosts will hold their parties at home, restaurants, community centers, etc.  I did mine at a park during the day so that kids could come, too.

 

  •  Open your kit and sort out the materials.  You will have enough samples, coupons and handouts for up to 12 people.  There will also be an agenda and a link to a video for your attendees to watch.  You will also be provided with a bingo game and some products to give out as prizes for the winners.
  • Assemble your bags and decide which prize you would like to keep for yourself.  I decided to keep the dish detergent! Also look over the materials and watch the video in case anyone has any questions.

  • Share info and play bingo! My kit came with a box of crackers to give as a prize, but instead I brought cupcake liners and shared them with the whole group.  You could also use them as bingo markers!

But most importantly…have fun!  It’s an exciting way for you and your attendees to learn healthier ways to incorporate cleaner products into your home!  I enjoyed learning about the healthy home facts through the bingo game and I really loved passing out all of the SWAG! 😉

What do you think?  Would you host a Healthy Baby Home Party?!

Well Beginnings Diapers/Wipes

I was given the opportunity to test out Well Beginnings diapers and wipes through the Massive Sway sampling campaign.  Well Beginnings is a line of products for babies and toddlers that are exclusive to Walgreens.  They claim to display the same quality as the more popular baby product brands, but at a fraction of the cost.

I used the size 5 diapers on my very active almost-2-year-old son.  He wore them throughout the day and during the night.  I was surprised at well these held up!  As far as thickness and quality, I would say they are a step-up from the Huggies Snug & Dry…but not as thick and durable as the Huggies Little Movers.  We also didn’t encounter any rashes or irritation.  The designs are pretty simple – just some giraffes doing yoga or something. Designs on diapers are not a big deal to me or my kids, so this really isn’t even a factor when it comes to diaper buying decisions.

The wipes also held up well.  I didn’t have any rips or tears during my review and the scent is very subtle.  I really liked the packaging on the wipes, too.  Instead of just a lift-up flap, you can press the button and the lid flings up on its own.  Fancy.

 


The pricing is very reasonable compared to other brands.  A standard pack of wipes goes for $1.99 and a box goes for $8.79.  A box of 70 diapers (size 5) goes for $16.99.

Overall, I was pleased with this product and surprised that I had good results from a drugstore brand.  The only negative is that I don’t really live close to a Walgreens.  I live much closer to Costco and Target and would probably shop there first before travelling out of my way to a Walgreens.  But I’m glad to know that this brand works in case I am travelling and happen to be near a Walgreens.  You can learn more about this brand and shop here.

What do you think?  Would you try a drugstore brand of diapers/wipes?
