Healthier Alternatives for Your Baby
Posted on April 30 2019
Nobody embodies the name “Momma Bear” better than you.
Your baby is your world. You provide protection, cuddles, boo-boo kisses, warmth, and lots of laughter.
You search the internet for answers when your baby is sick, call your sisters for sleeping advice, and try your very best to keep baby happy and healthy 24/7.
However, when parents buy diapers, clothes, or other items, worries of price and easy accessibility typically come first— putting thoughts of whether or not the products are actually healthy for baby on the back burner.
Did you know it only takes about 30 seconds for the ingredients in your lotion or sunscreen to enter into your bloodstream?
That means all those toxic fillers and unnatural ingredients that are in baby products (even popular ones) will be sinking into your baby’s body in a matter of seconds. Even the detergent you use to wash your baby’s clothes can sink into their skin.
What goes into your baby’s body can be just as important as what goes onto your baby’s body, like lotions, soap, diapers, and clothing. Consider changing a few things for your baby in order to find a healthier, more natural approach to diaper changes, bath time, and dinnertime.
Here is a list of items and their healthier alternatives you should consider upgrading to protect your little one:
