I’m so excited to introduce to you my favorite place to get some of my must-have baby products…. Healthy Baby Happy Earth!
It’s a cute little brick and mortar store located in the heart of historic downtown Glendale, specializing in “traditional baby care with a modern twist”. And, for all of you who don’t live in the Phoenix area, they have an online store so you can order from anywhere in the country! They offer a whole variety of products, but if you’re especially interested in natural/organic products, baby wearing, breastfeeding, and/or cloth diapering, then Healthy Baby Happy Earth is definitely one to check out!
Because the store is located in a historic house, all the products are organized by room. It’s adorable and makes it easy to find things! Let’s take a little tour of some of the highlights… This is part of the largest main room that you’ll walk into from the entrance! On the back wall you’ll find a whole array of cloth diapering products with brands like FuzziBunz, BumGenius, Happy Heinys, and more! In the original kitchen, there are a bunch of feeding & bathing products with brands like Skip*Hop, Beaba, Green Sprouts (and more)! Throughout the store you’ll find great toys, swaddling blankets, diaper bags, and crib products. If you’re interested in baby wearing, they carry a variety of brands & styles to figure out what suits you best! They even have a room that can be used for private lactation consultants, nursing your baby while shopping, and weight checks. Thus, there are a lot of breastfeeding products in the store! Breastfeeding products is actually how I stumbled upon the store. Just before my due date with Little Brother (29 months ago), I pulled out my Medela pump and noticed mold in the tubing. I knew I didn’t have enough time to order from Medela and yet, those parts aren’t sold in the larger chain stores. Frantic, I found a list of authorized Medela sellers/stores and there was Healthy Baby Happy Earth. And, honestly, I was so nervous about going. With my breastfeeding struggles and the “crunchy” sounding name, I was worried that I would be met with a lot of overzealous pro-breastfeeding judgement. But, it wasn’t that way at all. I was very pleasantly surprised!
The store is run by a mom & daughter team who genuinely care about what they do and their customers. They listened to me and I didn’t feel any judgement about not being able to exclusively breastfeed at all. Through them, I got extra help & support that I’m not sure I would have found otherwise. I rented a hospital-grade pump from them after the birth of Little Brother and Baby Brother (seeing an increase in my supply with both as compared to Big Brother). I also got connected with a local pediatrician who is also a board certified lactation consultant specializing in moms with breastfeeding issues! It’s the personal touches like these that make it a wonderful place to shop & support.
Why shop here when you can find the products elsewhere?
I personally like supporting small businesses, but aside from that “generic” philosophical reason, here’s a list of things that make Healthy Baby Happy Earth extra special compared to many other baby product retailers:
- Owner is a certified baby wearing expert & instructor for 7 different styles of carriers.
- They have weighted dolls in 3 different sizes so you can really try out things in the store.
- They work with 3 different lactation consultants who offer appointments at the store.
- They work with a local herbalist.
- Weekly free in-store weight checks.
- Offer hospital-grade breast pump rentals.
- Offer 10% off military discount in-store and online.
- You can create an online registry and shop online nationwide.
- You get personal attention & real service and they genuinely care about their customers!
Fabulous, right?! Here’s a peak at what I got after a shopping trip just before Baby Brother was born! I love everything I got! So, whether you need products for yourself or a gift for someone else, I definitely recommend you check them out! And, you have a chance to go shopping for free with this awesome giveaway!
