Mouse&Hatter Car Seat Poncho

Car seat ponchos are a MUST when it comes to car seat safety. This warm outer layer will keep your little one warm while keeping those straps and buckles as snug as they should be. The back of the poncho is lifted over the back of the car seat, so there is ZERO extra padding between your child and the seat. They are snug, warm AND safe.

Mouse&Hatter car seat ponchos include a layer of minky and a layer of anti-pill fleece. The poncho includes a hood and a convenient snap closure front. It also has snapped “sleeves” for a comfy fit outside of the car. Generally, you should purchase one size up from the clothing size your child currently wears. Price varies by size.

Mouse&Hatter Designs offers only the best quality products and brings the convenience and practicality of grow-with-me children’s attire and the safety of car seat ponchos to parents everywhere. All items are handmade in Ottawa, ON.

Les Produits de MaYa Liniment

To try liniment is to never go back to disposable wet wipes or even bum wash spray. Made in Quebec, Les Produits de MaYa liniment is a creamy, olive-oil based cleanser that is the only way I tackle poopy diaper changes. A dollop of liniment from my handy pump bottle on a soft cloth wipe gets baby’s bum clean and moisturized. No water needed! Parents who cloth diaper often choose cloth wipes over wet wipes anyways but have to use a spray bottle, moisten wipes in advance or be sure to change diapers near a sink. Les Produits de MaYa liniment is an effective and eco-friendly solution.

Liniment is also an amazing makeup remover, and you can use it to clean crusty noses and remove all kinds of goop from your children’s bodies (think the residue left by bandages, temporary tattoos and face paint). This product is also available in bulk.

Öko Creations Hooded Bath Towels and Ponchos

When people ask me what I buy for the babies and children in my life, the answer is an Öko Creations towel. For newborns up to about 1 year old, I always give an Öko hooded towel. For toddlers up to about 3 years old, it’s the Öko poncho. What’s so great about these towels? Well sure, they’re made in Quebec with organic cotton under exceptional work conditions (I know, I’ve been to the workshop), but they’re also incredibly durable. Why wouldn’t I want to give a gift that lasts?

When I found out I was having twins, I had to buy a second hooded towel. (One of the twins is using my daughter’s hand-me-down towel, which is still pristine.) They’re the only towels the twins use. Because Öko’s towels are so thick and absorbent, you’ll never want to use any others. (I could easily dry myself with the baby-sized towel—if that’s not an endorsement, I don’t know what is!)

Based in Ste-Rose, QC, Öko Creations’ line of zero-waste products also includes reusable menstrual products, care products such as handkerchiefs and face cloths and beautiful gifts for babies.
