In case she wants to wrap up herself or the baby after delivery, she has received the coordinating robe and swaddling blankets. (Lopez has also received the Mimi and Coco gowns from the line.)

Fair Trade Sports: Certifying Sports Gear for the Upcoming Season

As a sort through all the upcoming sports programs launching this spring and summer, my attention turns to restocking the boys gear. This find from CoolMomPicks is the perfect solution to ensure that their sports gear lives up to the highest standards and makes an impact in the greater world.

The folks at Fair Trade Sports have done the hard work and researched the products to find soccer balls, basketballs, volleyballs, and certified that they have been stitched by adult workers paid fair wages and given healthy working conditions. (Even better -all of their after-tax profits are donated to children's charities.)

With the indoor soccer season starting next month, I'm ordering their soccer balls which are stamped with the phrase "right to education" in nine different languages.

Available online at fairtradesports.com
