Teething Lovie by Drool Monkey Organics Review and Giveaway {Sponsor Spotlight} Shake, Rattle and Roll #ShakeRattleWin

How it all began:
Kamala Corkin desperately searched for something safe and clean for her teething baby to chew on. Being a new parent and learning about the importance of using organic she took an organic cloth and made her daughter her first lovie. Soon she realized it was something they would not be able to do without. She even hand embroidered a little monkey on it in honor of her daughters nickname, Drool Monkey. After her second child, Kamala finally released the Drool Monkey we know and love today. She had worked two and a half years on perfecting it and it shows! The design is flawless.
Someday Kamala hopes to pass the business on to her children who have been her motivation. Her daughter already asks where each monkey will be making its new home. When Kamala has time to spare she spends it with her family at the beach, her daughters favorite place.

This teething lovie is very unique! I have looked into other "lovies" and fabric teether on the market and none compare to this. You can use the Drool Monkey as a teether, blanket, burp cloth, and even a nursing cover. It is machine washable and does not pill. It's hand stuffed. It can be attached to a stroller or carrier either by the ribbon tether or the little carrying pouch.

Custom woven and super soft!

It is so cute. I just couldn't stop taking pictures of it! :)

What do I ♥ about it?

EVERYTHING! This has become my new favorite baby accessory along with my carrier. We take our drool monkey everywhere. I love that it can be washed often to keep it nice and clean and it does not pill! It even air dries nicely. I love that it helps prevent rashes by keeping my little ones face dry. I can't tell you how many times I have reached for it when Vallon spit up (and it's always within arms reach). I love that it is made of organic cotton and it's so soft! I love the removable ribbon tethers. I always keep a pacifier connected to one. Now I never loose a pacifier and it stays clean. I also attach the drool monkey to the carrier so it wont fall on the ground.
I think I like it more than my little one... :)

Drool Monkey Organics also sells organic hankies! I would love to try them. They would be perfect for sore little nosies!

What would I change?

As I said before, the design has been perfected. I wouldn't change anything about the drool monkey. I hope to see more products made from this wonderful fabric!
