This contest is now closed. Thanks for stopping by. Congrats to Nan Lara!
When our baby girl was born (3 weeks ago!), my husband had an opportunity to help with her first bath. The nurses naturally wanted to do it right away (apparently to “disinfect” the baby!). Since we did not go to the hospital that day thinking we would be greeting her, we did not have a bag packed. It’s amazing to me that the standard product used on all newborn babies contains sodium laureth sulfate. We opted to wait until my husband could go home and pick up one of the natural baby products we keep on hand.
Fresh Organics offers organic, hypoallergenic baby care products free from potentially dangerous chemicals. Being a so-called “green mom”, I have had the opportunity to try a number of all-natural, organic skin and baby care products. I had an opportunity to try the company’s Bubble Bath and Shampoo & Body Wash. The two things I immediately noticed about the Bubble Bath were that it smelled lovely and it made a lot of bubbles (which my son was thrilled about). The company discloses all ingredients right on their site, which I appreciate, considering one of the first things my son did was try to eat a mouthful of bubbles!
The Shampoo & Body Wash also lathers well. I suggest using just a little on a child’s hair, since it can be a bit difficult to get out with a squirmy toddler. Both products are tearless…thankfully…because it’s rare for me not to get any soap at all in his eyes when he wiggles.
While I think both products smell lovely (and clean really well), I prefer to use unscented products on new babies and scented products on my son (who is a toddler). My son has very sensitive skin and I found myself avoiding all scents and chemicals when he was a baby. I’ve used it on our daughter and so far she hasn’t had any skin reactions. But I’d love the company to develop a fragrance-free version.
