Tom’s of Maine: Our Journey To A New Beginning
Our journey to Tom’s of Maine® products was born, literally, into the world as a squalling 6.5 pounds baby boy. I was hoping our last child would be a girl, but we had another boy!
Moms of all boys, you feel my pain don’t you? But despite that small slight, and just barely there disappointment, I still love him to pieces. Like most babies they can come with all sorts of surprises and, unfortunately, they don’t come with a set of instructions either.
Our Zayd’n was born with mild eczema, and of course again like most young parents I didn’t know what that meant or how to properly deal with it. My pediatrician strongly recommended Tom’s of Maine® Baby Shampoo & Wash and I shot back with…”Tom’s of Who?” We both laughed. But honestly I had never heard of it and, therefore, I was a little skeptical.
My doctor reassured me; she said that it was a great product and more than likely it would work for my little boy, and if not we would try something else. But we never got a chance to try something else because we didn’t need to. Our baby’s dry skin cleared up and breakouts seemed not to be a problem anymore. All was well in the Worthey household.
But a funny thing happened. I was so pleased with the results that I started using other Tom’s of Maine® products, like the Tom’s of Maine® toothbrush and mouthwash. My husband and I love the Tom’s of Maine® Simply White® Clean Mint Cavity Protection Toothpaste and our boys, especially our oldest boy loves the Tom’s of Maine® Silly Strawberry® Anticavity Toothpaste. According to Zayd’n apparently the Silly Strawberry tastes great. I haven’t tried it, but I am going to take his word. And because of the “taste” great factor, our boys don’t complain about brushing their teeth. And as a parent that’s a good feeling, knowing your kids enjoy taking care of their teeth all because they enjoy the product. Major points.
Here’s a list of the thing you won’t find in Tom’s of Maine® products:
- No Artificial Colors
- No Artificial Flavors or Fragrances
- No Artificial Preservatives (EDTA, Formaldehyde or Parabens, etc.)
- No Animal Ingredients
- No Animal Testing
But for us there’s something bigger in play as to why Tom’s of Maine® is a good fit for our family. Our twins are on the autism spectrum, and with that punch in the gut diagnosis came the heightened concern, awareness and mission to use more naturally made, sourced and produced products. Yes, this was major. but in the end our families health and safety is priceless.
We’re able to stop by our local Walmart and pick up all of our Tom’s of Maine® products:
