Along with those glorious sunny days, we unfortunately have to deal with those pesky mosquito’s! We have options for you there as well!

Along with using a natural insect repellent, wearing long sleeves & pants in the evening is helpful, along with limiting your time outside at dusk.  Don’t forget about protecting your pets as well!  Some say eating lot’s of garlic is helpful, as well as burning sage.  Mosquito’s however are attracted to scent and most of that is going to come down to genetics!

This year we have also brought in Real Kids Sunglasses for Infants & Toddlers that offer 100% UVA/UVB protection.  They have an adjustable, detachable strap and will not break!  as well we have a good stock on AMP Swim Diapers in two sizes 6-20 lbs & 15-38lbs.  Swim Diapers are made of two layers of soft micro-mesh. This fabric allows the diaper to retain solids and not catch and hold onto water from the pool.

A year round favorite is our Watuko Headbands.  Made in Canada from Bamboo, these Headbands keep you warm in winter & cool in summer! Bamboo is great for absorbing moisture along with offering antibacterial capabilities.  Watuko shows a video on the website how to wear the Headbands in a variety of ways, including as a headscarf & skullcap to protect your head from sunburn!
