Whole Parenting Goods {giveaway}


SONY DSC{Today’s giveaway is from Nell, of Whole Parenting Family and Whole Parenting Goods!}

 Hello, friends! I’m Nell, the voice behind Whole Parenting Family and artisan of Whole Parenting Goods. My natural parenting blog began just after I had my first of our now family of three little ones. After blah-blahing to my dearly sainted mother (herself a mother of five) all about what I was learning on my journey as a mother, she suggested “why don’t you start one of those blog things?”

And years later, I’m still at it: sharing parenting experiences, spotlighting our local natural birthing and parenting community in the Twin Cities in Minnesota, and hearing back from our community of mamas and papas about their journeys too.

My husband and I are both attorneys but I’m on hiatus indefinitely. Our eldest son, 4 years old, has inherited a tendency for negotiation that’s tricky. Our two year old daughter certainly understands how to press the question But why? And our four month old son can cleverly smile and be evasive, all at once. We love our garden, compost heap, cloth diapers, and living in my ancestral family home.


My artisan textile and fiber work is a joyful sidecar to mothering at home. I retail and sell on etsy Bandit Bibs for dribblers // teethers // eaters, Contour Cloths for burping // spitting // catchingtiall, Plush Blankets with a thick layer of cotton batting between designer modern cottons and plush minky, as well as pure organic blankets and throws, with a handful of growing knits in the thick of it as well.  Having a little girl inspires me to have a line of Twirly Girl Skirts too!  My favorite delight for mamas and papas is my Organic Flaxseed Heat // Cool Packs. Because when your neck is aching or your low back is fatigued, a little flaxseed will soothe you every time.

Please come and visit me on the blog, on Facebooktwitterinstagrampinterest, and of course, my etsy shoppe!

  19. How adorable. where was those contour burp rags when I had my babies? I use those skinny ones that barely catch anything. Yours looks nice and big. not sure if I will have anymore babies in this house. my youngest is 2 and I am 42. I leave it in God’s hands to heal my body and my worries from my last delivery of an emergency C section turned into a nasty hematoma. I have apprehensions of delivery another. but I will definitely keep these things in mind
