Breast Ease provides instant relief for the swelling and discomfort that often occurs when nursing, so new mothers can experience a healthier, more positive breastfeeding experience.

Each Breast Ease package contains two soft, reusable gel pads. Breast Ease pads are hypo-allergenic, BpA-free and PVC-free. Apply warm before breastfeeding to improve milk flow, or apply cool between feeds to reduce swelling and discomfort. Purchase Breast Ease SRP $14.99.

Jackson Reece Wipes, Bumbo Baby Seat in the news

June 25, 2010

It’s been a good Friday for us here at Keen. A whole slew of bloggers have deemed today the day to post some lovely reviews of the awesome Jackson Reece Herbal Baby Wipes and the award winning Bumbo Baby Seat. Jackson Reece is a new offering for Keen and we’re proud to have it. It offers modern health-conscious parents a wipe made without harsh chemicals. It’s 99% comprised of vegetable and herbal extracts, and is gentle on baby’s skin.

In the Know Mom (www.intheknowmom) says of the wipes, “With ingredients such as organic aloe vera, organic lavender essential oil and organic tea tree oil, they’ll help soothe the skin and calm rashes and eczema. The wipes are free of alcohol, chlorine, parabens, lanolin, phthalates and many other ingredients considered to be harsh on baby’s skin. I love these wipes. Finally a wipe that’s gentle on my daughter’s sensitive skin, but degrades on it’s own leaving less of a carbon footprint on our earth.”

The Bumbo Baby Seat is great for babies who aren’t quite strong enough to sit up on their own yet. It’s amazing to see how they light up when they sit in it for the first time. A List Baby (http://alistbaby.net) has a cool review here: http://alistbaby.net/2010/06/bumbo-baby-seat/

World Cup Fun with Bumbo

June 16, 2010

We here at Keen Distribution are excited about the World Cup going on in South Africa. While we are soccer fans, we also are excited about our ties to the host country. We are the US distributor for Bumbo, which is based in the capital city of Pretoria, South Africa. Bafana Bafana (the nickname for the South African soccer team) play today in Pretoria against heavily favored Uruguay. Some of us were just in South Africa visiting Bumbo on business and it was amazing how jazzed the whole country is on the World Cup. Everything in the country is soccer-themed right now: buildings are painted to look like soccer balls, World Cup banners are everywhere and people are driving around with South Africa flags on their car doors. Sadly we were there just a couple weeks before the World Cup, but have been watching diligently from home.

In order to celebrate the World Cup we are launching some initiatives on Bumbo’s Facebook page. One is a membership drive – sign up for the Bumbo FB page and you can win a free Bumbo Baby Seat. You will see more fun things throughout the month, so stay tuned to the Keen blog and the Bumbo Facebook page: www.facebook.com/bumbousa
