When I was still pregnant, a friend loaned me her copy of Green Babies, Sage Moms, a book about how to incorporate natural products into your family's lifestyle to start your baby off in a healthy environment without breaking the bank.
After reading the book, I realized that a lot of the items I used around the house contained potentially harmful chemicals or ingredients that could be dangerous to a new baby. And according to Green Babies:
The most important people in the world are also the ones who should be the most discerning about what they choose to use. By important I mean expectant moms and new and growing babies. As we now know, toxic ingredients that don't appear to effect the mother at all can cross the placental wall and have negative, even disastrous effects on developing babies.
Knowing that everyday bath products may contain harmful ingredients has made me more vigilant in the products I choose to use on him. When I heard that Green Babies had launched a new organic body care line, I was excited to try out some of their products.
The Shampoo & Body Wash lathered much better than I expected. It foamed easily and did not leave Levi's skin dry.
The fragrance was a little strong for me straight out of the bottle, but it faded almost immediately into a very pleasant clean smell once Levi was out of the bath. I thought that since the fragrance seemed strong, it might irritate Levi's sensitive skin, but he was absolutely fine. Just a nice, clean baby.
Just to be on the safe side, we tried out the Calming Bubble Bath on a different night to make sure there weren't any skin reactions.
Great scent, not as strong, and lots of bubbles. Levi had fun splish-splashing them in the tub.
