Little A smells delicious after using this shampoo.  It was great to use when I was 1st getting comfortable bathing her.  I felt like I was all thumbs with her squirming around – so it was nice to have something that was self-foaming!

Mustela Foam Shampoo for Newborns – 5.07 fl oz

Extremely mild and does not sting the eyes, Mustela Foam Shampoo for Newborns is specially formulated to prevent and treat cradle cap. This innovative formula gently cleanses scalp while respecting its fragile balance. The mild exfoliating action of AHA’s helps soften and rinse away cradle cap flakes. Its anionic surfactants help eliminate the excess sebum which favorizes the appearance of cradle cap while totally respecting the hydrolipidic film of the newborn’s scalp. Convenient pump packaging dispenses a self-foaming shampoo.

Makes baby smell heavenly!

Pros: Gentle, Pleasant Smell, Makes bathtime easier, Effective

Best Uses: Daily Bathing, Sensitive Skin, Infants

Describe Yourself: First Time Parent

I love the way my baby smells after using this product. Because the shampoo foams when it comes out of the nozzle, it makes for easy application – no need to lather when you have a squirming newborn which is a huge plus in my book. Rinses easily.


I always look at reviews for products on websites, somehow I don’t find myself writing them very often.  I’ll write reviews on Yelp, but somehow just don’t write product reviews.  Now that I have little A, and find myself giving advice to friends on products for babies I figured that now was a good time to start.  Here is my 1st product review for a product called Dapple.

Rinses easily & quickly – does not leave residue. The product has a pleasant smell. Perfect if you don’t want to have dish soap bubbles lingering in your baby bottles or in baby’s mouth.


I came across this post I had been writing just 2 days before giving birth to our little one (1 day before checking in to the hospital) and just had to laugh…

“Our baby is a week past her due date.  My ankles are cankles,  ( a lovely calve ankle hybrid where one cannot discern where the ankle ends and the calve begins), I have pregnancy carpal tunnel, and my patience is wearing thin.  I have been getting text messages daily asking me where the baby is…I could probably formulate some perfectly inappropriate answers.”

Little A was worth the 9+ months wait, but in the last month I was definitely over being pregnant – and it didn’t help that she was a week late.  I have a feeling she would have hung around in the womb longer if labor hadn’t been induced.

So much has happened in the last months and I’ve been itching to get back to writing again.  Stay posted – three months of writing backlog are going to be unleashed!!
