Why we love Burt's Bees and pack it in every Belly & Bag
If you know Belly & Bag by Baby Boldly, you know we spent a year sourcing and vetting the best non-toxic contents to offer busy, expecting mommas a
pre-packed hospital birth bag. We’re two moms who have “gone before you” and are proud to make preparing for birth easier than before. We love that our bag makes mommas feel confident in their prep for their hospital birth.
There’s a thousand birth bag checklists available and while much is the same, there are plenty of differences that can dizzy any momma-to-be. As one of our customers states, “Baby Boldly takes the guesswork out of knowing what to pack.” But we didn’t just want to sell expecting mommas a brilliant idea that saved them time and stress, we wanted to help her care for her body, too. So we took our time and only packed the best non-toxic inclusions available that would be effective, yet gentle and safe for her sacred body.
Researching, vetting, wiping, choosing, packing - so you don't have to.
We know what it feels like to have just given birth. We also know how sometimes we wish we could take care of ourselves without having to get out of bed. A quick face wash can be just the thing to make you feel refreshed. Want to wash your face from bed? Travel facial towelettes are for you and they’re packed in every Belly & Bag! After carefully sourcing many options, we determined that Burt’s Bees was the best. Gentle and naturally-derived, it’s safe and effective for momma’s face while she’s recovering from birth. Conveniently packed in a soft, resealable pack made without plastic, it’s also environmentally conscious. #perfectcombo
Burt's Bees brand was started by friends
Burt’s Bees has a humble beginning. Burt left the hustle and bustle of Manhattan for a simpler life where he discovered a beehive and learned to tend to them. He stock-piled the remaining wax with an appreciation for the gift of natural resources. One day Burt picked up an unsuspecting hitch-hiking friend who had left the hustle and bustle of San Francisco in search of a simpler life, too. Roxanne and Burt became friends and business partners formalizing “Burt’s Bees”. They found his stock-piled wax to be quite the versatile resource to make sustainable and much-needed self-care products for the world. Since they started in the early 1980’s, they’ve created more body-care products like these facial towelettes.
Why this matters...
With a safe-for-sensitive skin on-the-go facial towelette like Burt’s Bees packed in your birth bag, you can still care for yourself. Nothing can replace a good face wash with warm water, but this is the next best option! We know mommas tend to put themselves on the back-burner, but we’re all about making it possible for you to re-imagine the juggle. Maybe your doctor recommends bed-rest, or you just don’t feel like moving, or as you live into motherhood it’s suddenly a chaotic day with seemingly “just no time” - these facial towelettes pack easily and give you a refreshing lift whenever you need it. If you’re a makeup-wearing momma, it even removes mascara! #boldbonus
