Natural baby products

As soon as I found out I was pregnant last year, I made it a mission of mine to find out what products will be the safest, most natural and chemical free for Savannah. I heard far too many gory stories about mainstream products like Johnson and Johnson, and knew I wanted to go down the natural route.  Here’s some products I have been using, and will definitely recommend all mama’s to use as well.

 

Baby wash

DR BRONNERS LIQUID BABY MILD CASTILE SOAP

This soap is magic. It is very concentrated, which means you only need a tiny drop to wash bub’s whole body with it. It’s 100% natural (you can even brush your teeth with it- if you can ingest it, it’s got my vote!) The soap is very delicate on their skin, and IT IS NOT TEAR FREE, which might sound like a bad thing, but in fact, it means there’s no numbing agents added to the soap. Just try and keep the soap away from their eyes, and do not wash their face with the soap (instead, just wet their cloth with water, and wipe down their face.)

Body Moisturiser (aka Baby oil)

100% ORGANIC COLD PRESSED COCONUT OIL

I don’t need to explain the hype on coconut oil to anyone, do I? This miracle oil is good for everything, and yes, that includes your little bundle’s skin as well. I bought a big 500ml tub of coconut oil right before Savannah was born, and I have more than half a tub left (Savannah is almost 5 months old)… and yes, I have a sneaky spoonful every now and then in my turmeric latte… So not only is it great for their skin, but it’s really cost effective, and smells like tropical heaven!

Teething remedies

WATER FILLED TEETHING RINGS

Stick these in the refrigerator until they get nice and cold, then give them to baby to chew on.

COLD PEELED CARROT

A good alternative to plastic that your baby can chew on.

MESH FEEDER

Pop in some cold fruits, and give to bub to suck on.

(ps, these are simply temporary relief – unfortunately there’s not much we can really do about teething ….)

 

Wind and gas

CHAMOMILE OIL

Rub a small about of chamomile oil on baby’s belly.

Bug bites

BAKING SODA

This takes the itch away. Mix a teaspoon of baking soda with just enough water to make a thick paste, smear it on the bites, and let it dry.

Baby wipes

WATER WIPES

This great product is completely chemical free, and contains 99.9% water, and 0.1% fruit extract. It’s a little on the expensive side if you had to compare it to other baby wipes, but I would happily pay that little bit extra to avoid all the chemicals and perfumes added to your standard baby wipes.
