Boogie Wipes

Boogie Wipes

As the temperature drops, so does the moisture our skin so desperately needs. Cold temperatures, low humidity and hot showers are all a recipe for dry, itchy skin, and the harsh conditions also take a toll on the face, which is sometimes the hardest to treat. Red, dry, chapped noses are caused by the lack of moisture and constant friction with dry tissues. nstead of tissues, help keep little noses healthy and intact during the season with Boogie Wipes! Boogie Wipes are saline infused moist wipes made with aloe, chamomile and vitamin E to add moisture while keeping noses smooth and clean after every wipe. Keep individual packs handy by your child’s bedside or tucked in your purse or diaper bag during cold & flu season to help soothe chapped and irritated little noses! “Mom” loves the unscented variety for use in her home.

Rainbow Light Fiber Garden Gummies

Rainbow Light’s Fiber Garden Gummies™

If your little ones are having trouble going to the bathroom, don’t worry, they’re not alone – reports show that at least 30% of children suffer from acute constipation. Childhood Constipation can be caused by a variety of factors including a change in diet, not drinking enough fluids, not taking the time to make bowel movements, and changes in daily routine. With the holidays behind us and cold/flu season upon us, it’s especially important for parents to recognize normal patterns in bowel movements, as well as to take preventative measures in keeping children as balanced as possible.
