Organic Baby Shampoo and Body Wash

By |February 23, 2010 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Bath & Body Care, MACT Award Winners, Product Reviews|

Fresh Organics pulls through again, with flying colors, with their organic Conditioning Shampoo and Body Wash for baby, child (and adults even love it too)!  Fresh Organic’s organic bubble bath was just recently awarded our Green Award, and this shampoo/body wash has been awarded our Green Award too! One of our readers commented on that bubble bath post that she learned some good info on how to keep her child’s sensitive skin protected.  This post will elaborate on that a bit more. All baby and children have sensitive skin.  Their skin is so new and delicate.  What we put on their skin is just as important as what we put into their bodies we believe.  I also have to mention that a baby’s delicate skin is even MORE ABSORBENT to dangerous toxins than us adults. They are just so vulnerable to all of the harmful ingredients that are hiding in many of the skin care products we believe to be safe to use everyday on our children. […]

Bummis Organic Cloth Diaper Kit offers a parent everything you need to get started diapering their baby in a more eco-friendly way!   This kit is supreme, stupendous, ingenious and darn right put together with the finest of materials and durability.  The kits come in 2 sizes and includes prefold inserts, 2 different types of diaper covers, flushable diaper liners, fleece liners to wick away moisture, a wet bag for storage of dirty diapers and a user guide! I personally chose cloth diapers for my baby girl when she was one, and I am so happy I did.  I didn’t do it when she was an infant because I failed miserably my first few attempts and didn’t think I could handle.  The real problem was that I just needed to know a few BASIC things to make diapering in this invaluable way successful.  If I would have had this Bummis Kit, I would have had all the tools I needed.

My Favorite Safe and Natural Teething Toy

By |January 14, 2010 |0-1 yr, Baby Accessories, Product Reviews, Toys & Activities|

My son is little over 4 months old and he’s sucking and chewing anything he can get his hands on. I bought him a bunch of wooden rings, cloth toys and safe plastic teethers, but all he wants is his Sophie the Giraffe. He usually drops toys a few seconds after he chews on them but not Sophie, it is the only toy that stays in his hands for more than 5 minutes! Mommy also appreciates Sophie’s help to keep  little guy happy in the car, crib and even in the bath tub! Below are my top 10 reason, why Sophie the Giraffe is so fabulous and simply irresistible!

A Rich Organic Baby Lotion That The Average Income Can Afford!

By |December 29, 2009 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Bath & Body Care, MACT Award Winners, Product Reviews|

It is insanely mind boggling how many dangerous toxins readily make up many of the mainstream skin care products targeted for our children.  Seriously, if the mass public knew the dangers of rubbing these neuro-toxins and hormone disruptors into the bodies of those we love and cherish the most, major companies would be going out of business fast.  Using a non-toxic moisturizer on our children is incredibly important.  Unfortunately not always affordable.  Not anymore! Many children these days also suffer from serious skin conditions such as eczema.  So it is so wonderful to find skin care that is safe for the whole family, organic, hydrating, and INCREDIBLY AFFORDABLE! Not only that, but Fresh Organics uses such amazing green practices in their manufacturing process that we are truly blown away!  We love this product, their Velvety Soft Babee Lotion! When our skin feels healthy, we feel healthy!  Dry winter air can cause the moisture in the top layer of your skin to evaporate quickly.  Hence, this may be a time you are beginning to look for a rich, organic lotion for you AND your baby.

A Safe and Effective DEET-Free Bug Spray for Babies and Kids

By |July 8, 2009 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Product Reviews, Sun & Outdoors|

Deet, especially for our babies and children, is highly toxic.  So, being a nature loving family, we wish to use a safer alternative. The great outdoors is a place where our young one’s mind can expand with the vastness of nature. Breathing in fresh air and experiencing the delightful array of unlimited possibilities that stretch from the grass on the earth, to the expansive vault of the sky is a gift we can give our children daily. Don’t let those pesty mosquitoes hold you back from getting into the forest/jungle, enjoying colorful sunsets, or even picnicking in your very own backyard this summer.  OUR BABIES THRIVE FROM THE NURTURE OF NATURE.  Find a DEET-free bug spray, and get out in nature and enjoy! What you need to know about deet, especially if you are a parent is this…. […]

Stainless Steel Ice Cube Trays Makes Safe Frozen Baby Food: A Safe Alternative To Plastic

By |June 25, 2009 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Food Gear, Product Reviews|

Making baby food for your baby is a wonderful gift.  For a baby to receive the nourishment of whole foods, cooked from your garden or local farmer’s market to the table is the best! But sometimes it really is a little too time consuming to make each meal fresh.  Freezing your own cooked baby food is the next best thing to a freshly cooked home-cookin’ meal. And since SAFbaby loves to stray from the norm of plastic everythings, we were really excited to hear about these stainless steel ice cube trays from the Tickle Trunk!  Not only can you make ice cubes from plastic free trays, but what an invention for safely freezing your own homemade baby food and food purees!
