Baby Grace: My Favorite Toxin Free Pacifier

Pacifiers and babies seem to be made for each other, but toxins and babies are a bad match! That’s why I love Natursutten’s BPA, phthalate, and PVC free version of the classic paci. They have an orthodontic version (pictured above) and a rounded version. (Below) Check out their website for more info and look for these toxin free pacifiers at your local health food store, or on Amazon!

Baby Grace: My Favorite Toxin Free Shampoo & Body Wash

When it comes to babies, the term “sensitive skin” is often an understatement. Their soft sweet skin needs delicate care, and what better way to get little ones clean than with a toxin and chemical free soap? Our family’s favorite baby shampoo & body wash is made by Earth Mama Angel Baby. It cleans delicate skin gently but effectively, foams wonderfully, and smells just lovely, since it is scented with organic vanilla extract and organic calendula. (I think there is nothing sweeter than the smell of a baby’s skin after a bath!) Here are some chemicals that are NOT in…

Baby Grace: My Favorite Newborn Diaper Covers!

If you can’t tell, I’m totally in love with our new little girl, Grace, 2 weeks old today! I thought I’d share with you my favorite cloth diaper covers for a newborn. I have to admit- they’re PUL, not a natural fabric. I’m not so thrilled with that, because I don’t like synthetic things very much. But, as far as newborn cloth diapers go, there aren’t many options. My one size fits all Little Beetle wool covers are humongous on a newborn, so when Micah was born, I bought several white newborn size wraps, made by Real Nappies.(The ones I…

Baby Grace: My FAVORITE Organic Swaddling Blanket!

There’s nothing as sweet as a swaddled newborn sleeping soundly! Pictured above is Grace, snuggled up in her organic Ultimate Receiving Blanket by Swaddle Designs. This awesome, oversized swaddling blanket is made of soft organic cotton flannel, and survives the washer beautifully. It is also a great privacy blanket for nursing! My mother in law gave this to me when Nathaniel, our 3 year old, was born, and I adore it. Now I just need the pink one for Lady Grace!Check out these awesome blankets at their website, Swaddle Designs.com.

Toxin Free Baby: Heirloom Organic Baby Bassinet

When our first son was born, some close friends of our family offered to give us a beautiful bassinet that they had purchased for their twins. It was a gorgeous bassinet, but since we planned to use a crib I had my heart set on, we turned them down. Once Nathaniel was born, and I saw just how small a newborn was, and how his crib seemed to engulf him, I regretted my decision to turn down such a generous offer! I still do to this day! With baby #3 coming in only 3 weeks, I’ve been looking into organic…
