Daily Mom Spotlight: Smart and Natural Baby Solutions by Natursutten & Fridababy

Remember your first pregnancy? If you were like us, you were so excited to create a baby registry in preparation for the multitude of showers being thrown for you, but that excitement quickly turned into anxiety as you stepped into the baby store. Who knew that there could be so many baby products, and why are they all so necessary? Or are they?

The truth is that much of what we had to have the first go round wasn’t really necessary (useful, but not necessary). In fact, as we prepared for baby #2, we realized that much beyond milk, diapers, and a car seat, babies don’t need much. That said, it doesn’t mean that we all don’t still enjoy buying baby products. However, having a little experience goes a long way towards choosing smarter, more natural, higher quality products. When you know better, you do better. Period.

With that in mind, today we’re thrilled to introduce you to Natursutten and Fridababy.

The Gift of Life From Womb To Womb

This may not be a story you’re accustomed to hearing, but it’s a story many mother’s who struggle to have their own children may long to hear. The story of the opportunity to simply be… a mom. To carry a child in her womb, experience the hiccups, kicks, and the precious heartbeat that exhibits a new life growing within her body. Now, this has been made possible through embryo adoption. An adoption that was made possible straight from conception, giving you the full experience to “Mom”  even though the child is biologically someone else’s, just like adoption. Through the heart and eyes of Anabelle Peterson, she gave life from her womb into another’s.

You had your birth plan set. Hospital picked out? Check. Doctor or midwife who you trust and respect? Check. Overnight bag packed?
