Has Spring Sprung? Nesting Story’s Warm Weather Picks!

Well… we have officially entered into the first week of spring but here in Canada it has snowed all week!  Wait, what is this bright light coming through my windows this morning?  Is it actually sunshine?  My almost vampire children who have been cooped up with cabin fever all winter are more than ready to get outside.  This allusive morning sunshine got me daydreaming about summer which I have to remind myself will eventually come… swimming, cottaging, bike rides… can’t wait!  So I thought this would be the perfect time to share Nesting Story’s picks for summer…. enjoy!


I found quite a few items from I Play, a company that prides itself of constantly finding ways to make baby products healthy for our children and the earth.  I am in love with these lace less rubber shoes that are PVC free from I Play!  A refreshing alternative to my other go to summer shoe, Crocks.  I prefer closed-toe shoes to open toes sandals to protect those little piggys from catching and causing scraped knees.  I Play also carries a great series of sunglasses that come in a soft plastic that won’t break when bent and provide 100% UVA and UVB protection.  I Play has thought of everything, including a built in diaper in their children’s swimwear!

Another great summer must have is Piggy Paint nail polish.  Piggy Paint’s nail polish is non-toxic, kid friendly and odorless.  A perfect loot bag gift idea for a kid’s summer birthday party!


We can’t forget the SPF!  Original Sprout carries a vegan sunscreen that is family friendly and toxin free.  Excellent for baby’s sensitive skin.


If you are planning on spending time at a cottage this summer then you will have to get your wee one a life jacket.  The Salus Nimbus Children’s Vest is designed for comfort so your little one will be happy to keep it on!


Each of the products above can be purchased from Simply Green Baby, either from their online store or in their adorable and green shop located in Oakville, Ontario. Visit www.simplygreenbaby.com for more information.

One more summer pick I had to include was the Appaman children’s sunglasses.  Appaman’s sunglasses are made with 100% Acrylic Frame and UV400 Coated Polycarbonate Lens.  You can find these bad boys at the hippest children’s boutique around… Jet Baby located in Oakville, Ontario.
