Protect Their Sweet Cheeks #EndTheRed

This post brought to you by Balmex. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Penelope’s Oasis. My sons had the sweetest cheeks as babies, adorably kissable and irresistibly pinchable. It was soft and smooth and perfect, and like most babies, made them super cuddly. There were times though that their other cheeks weren’t […]

  • I csnt remember the last time one of my babies had a diaper rash. When they did we used coconut oil and it worked super well! I haven’t seen this before!ReplyCancel

  • Catherine S

    We always used Balmex when my son was little. I always had one for the house and one for the diaper bag.ReplyCancel

  • It is the worst when your kids have diaper rash. It’s so nice to have creams like this around.ReplyCancel

  • Natalie Z

    That’s what we used! Our middle son had about 10+ poops a day as an infant courtesy of Celiac Disease. Balmax was the best way to keep him as comfortable as we could! Thanks for sharing the coupon!ReplyCancel

    This is a wonderful product and makes a great shower gift. I will share this coupon with my friend. She has two little ones in diapers.ReplyCancel

    Although my babies are older I remember bad diaper rashes all too well. I will certainly be sharing this coupon with my sister since she is still going through the diaper days!ReplyCancel

    Balmex Diaper Rash Cream sounds like it really helped your little ones. It’s nice to have something on hand at all times to protect that tender skin.ReplyCancel

Moms Are Never Really Alone #MomsFirst

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walmart. All opinions are 100% mine. When I first became a mom, I couldn’t believe the hospital would just hand me a brand new human being to take home and take care of. Didn’t they know I had no clue what to do? No […]

    This sounds like a great web series. I am sure it will be very helpful for new moms. I wish they had something like this when I had my son.ReplyCancel

  • I think this is great! New moms are so afraid to ask for help. They somehow feel like they aren’t allowed to ask. It’s OKAY!ReplyCancel

  • melisasource

    What a great idea! I wish that something like this would have been around when I was a first-time Mom!ReplyCancel

  • Robin (Masshole Mommy)

    That sounds like a great resource for new moms! I would have loved something like this back in the day.ReplyCancel

    I’ve never heard of American Well before and would have loved this when my son was younger (can still use it, but when he was a baby/toddler you question everything). I’m going to share this with my niece who has a 4 year old and a 2 month old… I know she will appreciate it!ReplyCancel
