My Top 5 Non-Toxic Baby Products

by Charise Rohm Nulsen

As I prepare for my second baby’s arrival in May, I am spending a lot of time thinking about the baby products I love. One major prerequisite for the baby products we are purchasing or adding to our wish list is that they are non-toxic. I know how easy it is to get wrapped up in the cuteness factor when picking out baby items, but there is really nothing more important than the health of our babes. Especially when children are so young with tiny bodies that are still developing, there is no greater gift we can provide then making aware and non-toxic choices for our little ones. Luckily, these days, there is no shortage of baby products that are both cute and non-toxic!

Here are 5 of my favorites:

1. Earth Mama Angel Baby’s Baby Essentials Bundle
We love Earth Mama Angel Baby’s all natural and organic products. Two of our current favorites are the Angel Baby Shampoo & Body Wash and the Angel Baby Bottom Balm. It’s important to me to know that the products absorbed into my little one’s skin contain zero toxins.

2. Hyland’s Homeopathic Kids’ Kit
This is such an easy way to give homeopathic medicine a try, and the instructions are simple to understand.

3. Organic Pajamas and Sleep Sacks
Nature’s Baby Blankets provides a wide array of organic pajamas and sleep sacks (as well as every other non-toxic baby product you can imagine!), and we love the Warm, Organic Fleece Footy Pajama for our son. It is so important to avoid flame retardant chemicals in sleepwear and sleep products, and this little suit is a perfect second layer over Baby’s snug fit pajamas in the winter. This is especially helpful if your little one is not ready to sleep with a blanket or if she is a very mobile sleeper who can’t keep a blanket on.

4. aden + anais Organic Swaddler

aden + anais offer such beautiful, delicate, and pure products for babies. I can’t imagine having not had their swaddle blankets for my son. We used them as swaddlers, sun protectors, burp cloths, and nursing covers. The material is exactly the kind that you wish you could surround a child with all of the time.

5. Non-Toxic Teethers and Amber Teething Necklaces

There is a fantastic selection of non-toxic teethers out there, and it’s a good thing because I would never want my babies to spend time gnawing on anything that contains toxins or chemicals. Some options we love are: Vulli Sophie the Giraffe Teether, http://www.dressmeuporganic.com/collections/organic-teething-bonbons, and the Wooden Elephant Rattle/Teether. An amber teething necklace from Inspired by Finn was another essential in our home, and I just adored how my little guy looked in it.

We used our Aden & Anais swaddling blankets all the time for baby #2. They are a life saver! We also like the new Dolphin Organics line of bath products for the kids. Super safe.

Thanks for the list, this will help me very soon after giving birth. Anyway, using non-toxic products is really important for the skin of your baby and this is such a guide for me. Thanks once again!

I wish there had been more ‘ecofriendly and natural’ options when my kids were younger. Great seeing so many available now!

My sister absolutely loves Amber Teething necklaces, which she recently discovered and bought for her baby. Besides making the baby comfortable, they sure make good fashion statements for the babies, and some matching ones for mum too! My friend bought a matching set from a company called ozsavers.
