It seems like one of the most important choices as a parent is which products to use on and in our babies bodies. While we certainly want the products we use to be all-natural, organic, fair-trade, and free from harmful chemicals, we also want to make sure the products we use actually WORK!
Check out our guide to some of the best all-natural baby products that give you the most bang for your buck. After all, as parents of multiples, we are always buying for two!
This medication for ages 2 and up is quick and effective at relieving typical symptoms of illness and help your babies get a good night’s rest. Formulated to help relieve sleeplessness, congestion, runny nose, sore throat, sneezing and coughing, this is a great homeopathic alternative to some of the standard over the counter medications that can be dangerous for children when used incorrectly.
These are a great alternative for those who don’t want to use ANY soap products on their kiddos. Soap can be drying and irritating to especially sensitive skin, but you can make sure baby is clean and germ-free by using these gentle cloths to clean the skin.
Not only is this diaper rash cream all natural and effective, it’s also safe to use on cloth diapers! It’s antibacterial, antifungal, lanolin free, zinc free, and vegan, and can also be used on thrush, bug bites, and chicken pox, as well as minor scrapes, rashes, and burns.
Formulated with Eucalyptus, Lavender, and Chamomile, this all-natural alternative to Vick’s Vapo Rub helps relieve the congestion and stuffiness that can come with a yucky cold and cough.
A great choice for parents who’d rather not use petroleum based products like Aquaphor on babies skin. Made with plant oils and botanical waxes, this product is free of parabens, phthalates, and synthetic fragrances but provides a rich moisturizing barrier to protect skin from chafing and irritation.
When you’re bathing two babies, it’s tricky to stop them from putting the bubbles in their mouths or try to drink their bath water. Luckily, this all natural line free of phthalates, sulfates, and parabens will help ease your worries about bathtime and is also tear-free!
This product line includes a slumber mist, lotion, and bath milk, all containing lavender, which is one of the most powerful scents to help babies relax and fall asleep faster. We could all use more sleep, right?!
This is a natural solution for painful gums and irritability caused by teething. For children ages 1 month & up, these tiny tubes of homeopathic liquid can be tossed in the diaper bag and used anywhere on the go. There’s no risk of overmedicating or numbing your baby’s gag reflex. Camilia is made without benzocaine, sugar, dyes or preservatives.
