My last Loving Lately post was about hair & personal care, but this time I’m focusing on babies & kids rather than mama!
There’s a million and one reasons why you should care about natural products for yourself, but even more for your baby. Let’s just say that the most popular products for the little’s that have been around for years aren’t as safe and gentle as they claim to be. The safest products you can use are the ones that are made with ingredients right from our earth.
These are a couple of my favorite products that Royce and I have been using a lot recently. You might be wondering why I’m using the bug spray in the middle of winter – I’ve found that it really helps stop you scratching an itch whether it’s from a bug bite or even dry skin!
When I’m not using Royce’s special cream for eczema, I use the Oilogic calming cream at night since it has lavender to soothe him. Many other brands break him out so we usually stick to one kind of lotion, but this doesn’t at all. Plus I just love smelling the soft lavender scent when I’m cuddling him 😉
The product I’m most excited about that also has lavender is the Wink Naturals chest rub! You can shop the products on their website or here. Royce and I have been SO sick recently with nasty coughs from congestion and I’ve bee putting this on his chest (and mine) and even on the bottom of our feet. My coworker recommended that trick to me and I’m not sure if it works, but when someone says xyz helps them feel better… you try it!
The diaper rash cream is something that I don’t have to use that often anymore, but whenever I see any sign of pink or red down there I use it and this is by far the #1 product by the Honest Company I recommend to people. It works instantly and you see a huge difference within a single day.
Lastly, Tom’s toothpaste is something I’m really excited to use because Royce actually has teeth now. If you didn’t know, it took him forever to get his first two and now he has FOUR on the bottom and two coming down on top. I’m trying to get his good habits started early and he actually likes this toothpaste! He actually runs to me when he sees the toothbrush now and opens his mouth so I can brush them. It’s soooo cute.
