Let’s Talk Baby Products…

Hello!  I was absent from fashion week this season because I had a baby – so along with hanging out with my baby daughter I have been spending a lot of time with some baby products!  Read on below to find a few of my favorites…

Organic Pharmacy 

I LOVE these baby products.  The shampoo, conditioner and body wash that I use on my older daughter smell incredible like chamomile and apricots without being too fragrance-ey.  They also don’t irritate her delicate skin.

Babo Botanicals

I am a huge fan of Babo Botanicals.  Their Oat and Calendula formula also smells fabulous and cleans gently.  They also make a great de-tangler that I use on my eldest.

VMV Hypoallergencis

Another line that I am crazy about is VMV Hypoallergenics.  I’m a big fan of coconut oil I think it’s a great oil for babies and mommies.  It is a key ingredient in the VMV mom and baby line.  I’m really into their Grandma Minnie’s Oil’s Well Nurturing Do-It-Oil.  I love to use it to prevent diaper rash and for a massage after the bath.  The Grandma Minnie’s Kid Gloves Monolaurin Hand Sanitizer is great because it doesn’t dry out your hands like most hand sanitizers canTheir Big Brave BooBoo Balm is another multi-use product of which I’m a big fan.  With this balm you’re always covered – whether you have mosquito bites, eczema or chapped lips this Balm is the bomb!

Mommy’s Bliss

Mommy’s Bliss Gripe Water is an essential that can get you out of a fussy bind.

Aveeno

Aveeno Soothing Bath is a favorite for my older daughter who has very dry skin.

Mustela

I love the extra gentle and moisturizing Stelatopia line.  I especially love the Stelatopia Milky Bath Oil.  And the Hydra stick is another multi-use moisturizing product that is great for cheeks and lips on both mama and baby – it’s great for throwing in your purse and applying any time.

I hope you mamas out there love these baby products as much as I do.  Enjoy!!
