This is Part 2 of a four-part series highlighting Healthy Child, Healthy World’s new e-book, Easy Steps for a Healthy & Safe Nursery.
What you put on your baby’s skin is just as important as what you put in his body. You wouldn’t feed your baby soda, so why lather him up with chemical-laden lotions and wipes? Not only are these chemicals absorbed into your Little One’s skin, but since his hands and feet always end up in his mouth, he actually eats the products you put on him.
All-natural baby-care products can be expensive, and not all mothers can afford organic bubble bath. But what many expectant and new moms don’t know is that making your own baby products is actually a very affordable — and EASY! — option. Many of these take minutes to make, and you can even make them ahead of time — heck, you can even make these while you’re still pregnant, before your new bundle arrives.
I’ve personally made the natural baby wipes and the oatmeal bath, and I can assure you: These really are easy.
So give ‘em a try, and keep your baby’s skin chemical free!
