|Rainbow products, Baby Oh Baby Body Wash|
The scent leaves you wanting to eat your baby even more than you do now. It's
made with nature's finest ingredients-Borage Oil, Shea Butter, Organically grown herbs, Vitamins, and Essential Oils.Animal Free, NO Colors, Dyes, Petroleum or Mineral Oil. I also use it for my diy baby wipes.
|Earth Mama Baby Angel|
The nipple cream and mama bottom spray (I had an epitome) were my first purchases from this line. I loved that the nipple cream didn't leave my nipples with a "clogged/blocked feeling for lack of a better word (as oppose to the Lansinoh the hospital gave me). I also loved that the mama bottom spray could be used as a toner as well (score). So I had to go back and purchase the baby bottom balm. The Earth Mama, Angel Baby line is:100% Organically Preserved, Clinically tested, Hypoallergenic, No Artificial, Fragrances or Dyes, Cruelty-Free, Toxin-Free, Certified Vegan.
My first all natural baby product purchase was a travel size baby kit from Weleda . I immediately fell in love with the calendula oil. The scent was amazing and the oil hydrated my little man's skin nicely. The diaper cream goes on fine and I like that it's not too thick so it can be used with cloth diapers. I use it as a rash preventative at bedtime so I don't know if it gets rid of existing rashes well. When I looked over the list of ingredients I didn't find one unpronounceable synthetic compound or one toxic chemical. Just flowers and herbs, fruit extracts. Clays, roots and minerals.
|Spectrum Unrefined Coconut Oil|
I wrote about the ways I personally use coconut oil in a previous post. Coconut oil has many benefits for your baby. I use it as:
|Tot Bots Cloth Diaper|
I am a huge fan of cloth diapers! But have to be honest and say I also use disposable ones as well (from The Honest Company-they're just so cute!). Cloth diapers require more work than the comparative disposable diapers but they are a lot safer. Disposable diapers contain lots of chemicals that have proven to be carcinogenic. Besides them being healthier for baby and the environment, cloth diapers are waaay cheaper than disposables. I mainly bought the Tot Bots cloth diaper (pictured above) because the fabric was soft and fluffy and cuter than other cloth diapers.
|Boon Grass Countertop Drying Rack|
I primarily breast feed but have tote loads of bottles courtesy of my mother. I began to give them away but then decided to keep a few to bottle train him so my family members can feed him. The Boon Grass Drying Rack is just a cool way to present the bottles and pacifiers that are all over your countertop.
I got a lot of his toys second hand from a semi-annual rummage sale in town. I struck GOLD! I bought brand new Baby Einstein and Lamaze toys and DVDs as well as stuffed animals. Being that they were second hand, I didn't know how they were previously handled, so cleaning them was crucial to me. I machine washed the stuffed animals with Dreft (smelled so good I had to talk myself out of sleeping with them). The hard toys I washed with a vinegar and water mixture.
|Maty's All Natural Baby Chest Rub|
I haven't had to use this yet (fingers crossed) but read many great reviews. It's list of all natural ingredients work as a great combat to congestion. Put a dollip of Maty's All Natural Baby Chest Rub on baby's chest and feet and after one night his/her congestion will seem sooo much better. It has a milder, but still effective, scent that isn't overwhelming.
