Affordable Natural Baby Care Products You Can Find Around Town

Affordable Natural Baby Products | mindfulmomma.com

“It wasn’t until I had a baby of my own that I started to really pay attention to buying non-toxic products.”  

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard that line. There’s something about bringing a new life into the world that wakes you up to the potential hazards in the world around you. Suddenly you become extra sensitive to every little thing in your new baby’s environment – from food and clothing, to items in your home, and even the air they breathe. The shampoos and creams you use on their little bodies are under scrutiny as well….and for good reason.

Why It Matters

Pick up a personal care product off a store shelf, and it will very likely contain ingredients linked to hormone-disruption, early puberty, cancer or other negative health effects. Why? Because current federal regulations are extremely limited, and untested ingredients are perfectly fine for companies to use.

It’s one thing to use these ingredients on our grown-up bodies, but another thing altogether for a baby. A baby’s tiny body does not detoxify as efficiently as an adult’s, so the same chemicals can have a more drastic effect on them. You just don’t want to mess around with something like this on your baby. And why take the chance when plenty of safer products exist?

(For more about how to buy safer personal care products, including how to read and understand product labels, check out this post.)

Suggested Products

Speaking from experience, life with a newborn can also a pretty overwhelming time. As a new mom, you don’t have a lot of time for leisurely shopping. Sure, you want to buy safe and healthy products, but you don’t have time to visit specialty shops all over town. Nor do most of us have an unlimited budget to buy high-end lotions and potions for baby.

Safe. Affordable. Easy.

I get it. That’s why I put together this list of non-toxic baby product brands that are both affordable and easy to find on your next trip for diapers and groceries. Everything listed here meet the following criteria – especially important for babies:

  • EWG’s Skin Deep rating of 1 (or certified USDA Organic)
  • Fragrance-free or lightly scented with natural essential oils
  • Made with natural and organic ingredients (synthetic preservatives may be necessary in some products for safety**)
  • No animal testing

(**For a great discussion about preservatives in personal care products jump over here – but come right back!)

How Skittles Are Part of My Kids’ Healthy Diet

Teaching Kids How To Manage Junk Food | mindfulmomma.com

  Skittles™ + healthy diet? Whaaaat? I knew I'd raise some eyebrows with that headline. Don't worry - I don't feed my boys artificially colored sugar bombs along with their broccoli and brown rice. I'm well aware that when they say "eat the rainbow", they do not mean Skittles™. But I do want to talk about how Skittles™ … [Continue reading]

Thank you to Stonyfield for sponsoring this post! Not. Enough. Food. That's the message I was getting from my tween/teenage boys about the lunches I was packing for them. Somehow my little dudes have become big dudes, in grownup sized bodies that are still growing, if that's even possible. Gone are the days when I can create a … [Continue reading]

Kid-Friendly Orange Hummus

Kid Friendly Orange Hummus // www.mindfulmomma.com

Given their own devices, kids don't always gravitate toward healthy, flavorful food. Have you noticed? LOL - I have too! But here's another thing I've noticed: If you put out a colorful plate of raw vegetables for snacking - kids will gobble them up! Having something tasty for dipping helps too - because who doesn't love to … [Continue reading]
