You asked and you shall now receive. It’s only fair for us to share all of this stored up knowledge about a baby and what happens once the baby is born until they are no longer called a baby but a toddler! We now will answer, in a very public forum, all of those burning questions about babies and those first 12 months. Each Tuesday, we will tackle a commonly-asked-question from the point of view of a new parent. Chiming in to give her feedback will be an expert who has been there and done that as well as has oodles of professional experience with babies. Earmark, share and add your own input to today’s question; it’s good karma.
What are some good resources for buying natural baby beauty products?
There are many store and online sources for natural baby products. One of the best places to get natural baby products is Whole Foods, which has a separate and wonderful baby section, filled with natural baby products.
Another source of natural baby products are Earth’s Best products and foods. You can get them in most baby and grocery stores or order them online. They have a large diverse line of natural baby products from diapers to baby food. Their products are excellent.
Another source for natural baby products is California Baby products, which can be found in some baby and retail stores. They also have a whole line of excellent natural baby personal care products for bathing, hair, moisturizing, sun block and insect repellent and many other products. They also can be ordered online from their website.
Another source of natural baby products is Boiron, a French company, which makes homeopathic baby products for teething and colic. Their products can be ordered online or may be in some pharmacies. They are sometimes samples available in your pediatrician’s office too.
There are many products I can discuss and recommend but these are few to try with your baby.
