Sesame Street® Baby Naturals - Review & Giveaway {3 winners!!} *CLOSED*

I was given the opportunity to do a review/giveaway for The Village Company and their Sesame Street Naturals line!

C has HORRIBLE eczema! We fight to keep it under control by using a doctor-prescribed steroid cream. We are learning as we go, as J doesn't (and never did) have ezcema, but we are FINALLY realizing that if C starts to itch, the eczema will appear in the next day or two.

I just knew that the Sesame Street Naturals line would work for him because it is Hypo-Allergenic and Dye-Free.

More about the Naturals:
With Sweet Almond Oil and Aloe, Sesame Street® Baby Naturals products were developed especially for gentle cleansing and natural moisturizing. We have taken extra care to ensure the best for baby: Tear-Free, Hypo-Allergenic, Dermatologist & Pediatrician Tested, Dye-Free, and Paraben-Free. Each formula also contains naturally-derived ingredients to nourish skin and help restore natural moisture(1).

So, I got C's ezcema as controlled as I can and then I let him take a bubble bath!! The Baby Bubble Bath smells amazing! I was really impressed with the amount of bubbles that came from just a small amount of soap!

C played for a bit, and then I got out the loofa I bought to use with the Shampoo/Body Wash. It lathered so much better than a non-soap that we {usually} use! It smells much like the bubble bath - a smell I really enjoy! Then I washed C's hair, I could tell a big difference between the Sesame Street Naturals and other shampoo/washes.
Typically, the 2 or 3-in-1 shampoo/washes make C's eczema go CRAZY, but in addition to that, they make his hair feel dry and gross. Sesame Street Naturals did neither.

Lastly, the Shea Butter Baby Lotion - one word - LOVE! It's such a smooth, creamy lotion! It absorbs so quickly and didn't leave a sticky feeling on C's skin!

End of the school year ...

Well, it's that time of year again - the end of the school year. I am SO excited! We have had a really rough time with J's teacher this year - I don't blame it ALL on her.
Anyway - I want to know:
1. Do you give your child's teacher something for the end of the year? If so, what? (Do you do something different if you have butted heads with that teacher?)
2. Do you give the bus driver something? Again, what?
3. What are your plans for the summer? Anything exciting?!
I asked J what he wanted to do this summer. On the top of his list: "get a dog" ... EEK!!
Thanks for your feedback! :)
