Finally! Just a couple of weeks ago, we announced that The Honest Company and Target were teaming up. And now it’s official.

Houston Parents Are Embracing the Baby Spa – And Here’s Why

06/13/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

Victoria was a fussy, colicky, preemie who never napped. “It was terrible,” says her mom, 30-year-old hat designer Veronica Schiller.

Then a friend told her about Float Baby, a spa for newborns in Houston, Texas. On her first visit, the then 2-month-old happily floated in the baby water spa, then her mom wrapped her in a warm towel and gave her a 20-minute massage.

“She was super relaxed and calm,” says her mother. “Then she was starving. She drank the whole bottle — which is completely unusual. And as soon as she got home, she took a five-hour nap.”

After their successful first session, Schiller started taking her daughter once a week for a month, eventually moving up to twice a week.

Summer Tips for Getting Kids Involved in EnvironmentCourtesy Bambooee

Shocked to learn that only 7 percent of the Brazilian rainforest was left intact, mother-of-two Irene Krasniansky decided it was time to lay down the law: no more paper towels.

Prompted by the pledge, her entrepreneurial husband, Noam, set out to develop a product that not only replaced disposable paper towels, but was also composed of a sustainable and renewable resource.

The result: an “un-paper” towel that replaces up to 286 paper-towel rolls.

The couple, inspired by TOMS’ shoe-donation campaign “One for One,” then took their mission one step further by vowing to plant a tree for every roll of Bambooee sold.

To date, their pledge is responsible for over 70,000 new trees being planted. Also nearest to Irene’s heart is teaching future generations how to care for their planet.

Everyone always talks about how much your skin will glow during pregnancy, but what if your skin doesn’t get that memo?

I was one of those unlucky women and I can tell you, there’s nothing fun about treating acne while you’re expecting because unfortunately, there are a lot of products you can’t use.

My baby boy arrived two years ago so I’m back to being as close to blemish free as possible — thank goodness!

But since I figured there had to be others suffering my same fate, I decided to reach out to an expert to see if there is a safe and effective way to keep those unwanted zits at bay when you’re with child.

Luckily, Dr. Jeannette Graf was more than willing to share her thoughts. Check them out below.
