Dittany Baby {giveaway!}


THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED
THANK YOU TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED
A WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED SHORTLY ON THIS POST!



Dittany of Crete is a flower and herb that can be found on the island of Crete.

It can be found in literature dating as far back as "Homar and the Illiad". It was discovered by a shepherd who followed sheep, that had been wounded by arrows during battle, climb the mountain and eat this flower. The sheep that did so lived.

Throughout history it has been used both internally and externally as a healing agent and was most widely used to ease the pain of childbirth.


I remember the days all too well of trying to nurse my baby, while trying to cover up by using a receiving blanket. You and I both know receiving blankets just are not made for this and they do not work. Dittany Baby has the most wonderful nursing covers...they have an adjustable strap which slips around your neck and they are available in the prettiest fabrics and designs. These are nursing covers all grown up!


Dittany Baby is your one-stop-shop for not just nursing covers, but pouch slings,
contoured mei tai, the baby lua and my personal favourites...the original skidpants, the collegiate skidpants and luxury tights .

The only reason the skidpants are my personal favourite is that my girl has outgrown the wonderful infant and baby products. I am sorry that I didn't know about Dittany Baby a couple of years ago when I was in the market for those types of products. Yet, I am excited to have found Dittany Baby now, Jillian loves to wear skirts and dresses and a cute pair of skidpants (legwarmers) completes the look of the outfit.

My review
Dittany Baby was kind in sending me a pair of Pink Warbler skidpants for our review. I was curious to see if they were going to be long enough to fit Jillian...keeping in mind she is three years old. The top of the skidpant hits about half way between her knee and top of her leg, fitting her perfectly.
Skidpants are an awesome idea for children learning to toliet train, even though Jillian is a pro in the bathroom now, it is still much easier for her than pulling down tights when she is in a mad rush to the washroom.

For younger kids skidpants are a perfect solution for keeping those little legs protected as they are learning to crawl.

I love the styles, and colours of skidpants available from Dittany Baby. They are soft and warm and cozy for babies and young children! Forget nylon tights...they don't keep little legs warm...think skidpants!

~gift it~

Dittany Baby has great gift ideas for the mom to be, or new mom. Be sure to check out the skidpants like I reviewed and luxury tights. My next purchase from Dittany Baby is going to be luxury tights! And, the best part - buy now because Dittany Baby has some amazing sales!
You can purchase a pair of original skidpants for $4.50, and that amazing nursing cover I was speaking of earlier in this post is on sale for $23.80!!
I love when you can find Boxing Day prices before Christmas.
