Not everything at Expo West 2012 was for eating or drinking. Lucky for us natural mothers, the natural health industry knows we are trying to raise natural children. This year’s Expo West featured several baby and children’s products that I would just LOVE to have in my medicine cabinet, travel bag, diaper bag, playroom, and home.

I just got back last night from another pilgrimage to the Natural Products Expo West show, where the natural foods and natural health industry converge annually to stop traffic in Anaheim. Well, obviously, the purpose was not to stop traffic, but the size and scale of the show was and is such that traffic was, for all intents and purposes, stopped on Katella Avenue. My maiden voyage to Expo West was last year and it was…mind-blowing. So I determined to make my way there again this year – even if it meant leaving my little girl behind for a weekend … Continue reading
