New Haven, Conn. (WTNH) – Spring has sprung, and that means we’re all hopefully getting out with our families after a long winter of inside activities. CT Style Host Natasha Lubczenko recently spoke with Lifestyle Expert Marisa Brahney who had some great tips for us to make the most of this brand new season.
Below are some of Marisa’s highly recommended “must-haves:”

Handzies Soap + Water Wipes $22.99/24 ct,
-Now that we’re out and about more for the season, preparation is everything and messes and germs do happen. As a mom with 3 littles ones, I love knowing I can get a ‘soap and water clean’ anytime, anywhere.

Handzies Soap + Water Wipes give you fresh, clean hands using ONLY natural castile soap, water, and essential oils.

-No harsh hand sanitizing here- because Handzies are free from alcohol, BZK, triclosan, AND artificial perfumes or dyes.

-Not only are they gentle for the whole family, they’re ideal for family outings, because they come individually packaged – so perfect for backpacks and purses, even to stash in luggage.         I keep them in the car and always have a few for each of my kids within reach of their seats.

-Being on the go with a baby in the warmer months is so fun but can certainly mean a lot of GEAR. All of these ideas are from KeaBabies, which is a mom-founded brand that has become a go-to for busy parents.

-As a mom of kids close in age, babywearing became a must for me. The KeaBabies Baby Wrap Carrier mimics the womb, is ergonomically designed and has just the right amount of stretch to evenly distribute weight. It provides back and shoulder support and is available in 16 colors and patterns, it’s also machine washable.

-Of course, we need a good bag for family outings.  KeaBabies Diaper Backpack is really thoughtfully designed with multiple pockets and compartments to organize all the necessities. It’s easy to get in and out of, and includes a waterproof diaper mat.

Mabel’s Labels,
-We need to think ahead, and one of the ways we can get ready this spring is by getting
in order the labels we need for summer camp.

Mabel’s Labels has a variety of collections that include all the labels, stamps, tags and more to keep your child’s things organized.

-You can choose from the Day Camp Label Pack or their Sleepaway Camp Label Pack as well as a set of their NEW Water Bottle Bands to keep your camper organized. 

-The labels are DURABLE- weatherproof and waterproof- dishwasher safe, machine washable, dryer safe.

-They always have new, on-trend designs for children of all ages.
