How does it work?

Screen Shot 2014-06-02 at 2.48.00 PM

Bert&Bratt products have a small UVGI light that kills germs using a dual-action process.The oxygen in the air reacts with a range of 254 nm wavelengths creating ozone to safely eliminate up to 99.9% of germs and bacteria. The only by-product of this process is oxygen, leaving the pacifier without any residue or harmful bacteria. Simply push and hold button until light flashes.  When flashing has stopped, sterilization has occurred. It breaks down bacteria and exposes the DNA/RNA, quickly destroying the cell.

Make It Yours!

Kanga Care

Rumparooz Cloth Diapers contain multiple design elements that hold US Patent Applications. Dual inner gusset technology, and other features, are an exclusive patent pending feature of Kanga Care brand products. Kanga Care was born 8 years ago when Julie, our owner, found a need for a better cloth diaper after her second daughter was born with a sensitivity to disposable diapers. With years of sewing skills behind her, Julie created the Rumparooz with the patented dual inner gusset. Julie spent the first few years sewing diapers at her kitchen table, but soon demand became too much, and she found our amazing manufacturer where Rumparooz and all our Kanga Care products are made today.

Spray Pal

Spray Pal was invented by a cloth diapering mom and dad when they started their oldest on solids and couldn’t get their diaper sprayer to work without making a big mess all over the rest of their bathroom. So they created the prototype, applied for a patent, and started making cloth diapering easier for everyone! Less than a year later, their son was born 3.5 months prematurely. Now all proceeds from their sales go toward his medical expenses and will hopefully allow these parents to stop teaching and work from home to be able to care for both of their kids and keep up with his appointments and therapies. You can follow their story on Facebook, Twitter (@spray_pal) and Instagram (@spraypal).

As a Wisconsin mom of four young daughters, I developed a solution called Rock-a-Thighs. These are Made in USA, eco-friendly, thigh-length socks — sort of like legwarmers with feet.

These are “THE baby socks that stay on!” Available in six sizes ranging from 0-6m up to 6-8yrs.

Zippyz by Little Trendyz

Zippyz are footed pajamas with a patented design that makes diaper changes easier while keeping babies covered and warm during the process. Zippyz are made of a blend of organic and cotton which is extremely soft and eco-friendly! ZippyzÆ (shopzippyz.com) was created by mom, Lisa Youngelson, who like most new parents, had been up night after night changing her newborn sonís diaper. She was so exhausted she could barely function, let alone match up the tiny snaps on her babyís pajamas.

Frustrated by endless missnapping and re-snapping, Lisa found zippered pajamas, and thought her problems had been solved. That night when she unzipped her sonís pajamas, he started to cry from the shock of the freezing cold air. After endless research, Lisa realized there was nothing on the market that could be the solution to her problem. So, that night while feeding her son she thought of ìZippyzî.

No more waking your sleeping baby just because it’s time to get into the carseat! The Carseat Sidekickô was an invention of necessity. While taking our first child home from the hospital and laying him in his car seat, we realized there was no way to easily get the car seat straps out from underneath him, without waking him up and making him cry. Thus was born, the Carseat Sidekickô. The Carseat Sidekickô is not only extremely functional, it’s also chic and attractive in design with a variety of colors to match your carseat. It is compatible with all major carseat brands. This brand donates 10¢ of every Carseat Sidekickô order to Living Water International, an organization that helps provide clean drinking water to those that would suffer without it.

As a mother of two, Julie found she was continuously retrieving dropped pacifiers, because even though they spit them out, they still want them immediately! She called it “the pacifier game,” and, at times, it was difficult to play. One day, she thought, ‘I wish somebody would invent a …’ A what? What could make it so babies can keep up with their pacifiers? Several designs later, the PullyPalz were born… The first ever pacifier toy that – with the help of baby’s interaction – keeps pacis coming back!

Her goal is to offer unique products that make life and parenthood just a little easier, and ultimately more enjoyable. Compatible products (teethers and toys) will be coming to market soon. Julie also offers product development and consultation services for other aspiring entrepreneurs.

Jennifer Jacobellis started Baby J when her son was just a few months old. She ventured out to mommy and me classes and play groups, armed with just a blanket for him to lie on. After class, she would fold up her blanket and stick it in the diaper bag, knowing that when she got home it would have to go straight into the laundry basket. There had to be a better way!

One day she decided it was time to solve this problem. She ran to the fabric store and began tinkering. She designed this play mat with her germ-a-phobe tendencies in mind, as well as being soft, baby friendly, and chic. The Baby J padded play mat was born!

Owner and Hales Corners, WI, mommy of two Kelley Legler hand-makes all baby Jack blankets and puts a lot of love and time into these creations. This business started out as a hobby after Kelley saw how much her son loved to play with ribbons but did not enjoy seeing his fingers intertwined in the loops. After careful consideration, her mother-in-law, Nancy, and Kelley started sewing ribbons shut into tabs, leaving only one ribbon open as a “link loop” to attach a pacifier clip or toy (toy link included!). These custom ribbon-tab blankets are perfect for baby showers & gifts!

Hi and welcome to my blog! I started this blog when I started seeing the potential to help other moms and dads with saving money on the things they needed and wanted. I began seeing posts on facebook for product reviews and for links to free items and thought I would love to do that! If I could just help one family in this economy I would be happy. So that is how Five Lil Bass In Tow started. Why that name, you might ask? Well my sister actually came up with it. We have 5 children ranging from 5-16 and our last name is Bass. (now in the process of adopting a little girl we have had for a year and half) People would stare at us when we “towed” all the kids to restraunts and stores. AnywayÖ..my goal is just to bring you the savings, and the product reviews so you can shop wisely, and maybe you can make some friends along the way!

Did you know?

Disposable menstrual products are bad not only for your body but also for the environment. Most of the feminine hygiene products are harmful, may cause itchiness and irritation due to chemicals and fragrances they contain. Not to mention the bleach enhancements that are carcinogenic. Once disposed all these chemicals leach out into the environment and re-enter the ecosystem, the food and water supply.

This month we’ve teamed up with GladRags and we give you the chance to win a Cloth Pad Sampler Kit

2. Less work for cashier and ease of shopping because produce is visible.
3. With a perforated/mesh bottom for straining or rinsing, it’s part bag, part colander.
4. Grocery bags can be a breeding ground for dangerous foodborne bacterias, our mesh bottom bag is intended for cleaning and rinsing.

TrueMoon was started by women with a 20 year background in female self-esteem programs, who discovered that most women are unknowingly putting toxic chemicals in their bodies with most tampons. It happens because most of us are too embarrassed to even think about tampons, let alone talk about them. TrueMoon believes knowledge is both power and pride, and no woman should ever apologize for being female.
