Registering for baby items can be overwhelming especially when you are seeking out only natural, eco-friendly, and non-toxic products. Fortunately expectant moms are no longer limited to their neighborhood big box store for their baby registry needs. Listed below are a few of my favorite essential items to help you get started on purchasing for baby.
Matimati Baby Bandana Drool Bibs: These fun bibs are super absorbent with the front being made of 100% soft organic cotton. They also grow with your baby as the 2 nickel-free snaps provide different sizing.
Green Sprouts by iPlay Organic Muslin Burp Pads: Soft and absorbent, these solid baby burp cloths combine cuteness with utility. Made of organic cotton and available in several colors.
Hanna Andersson Organic Layette: This shop is fully stocked in a variety of adorable organic layette options. Made from luxuriously soft organic cotton and finished with seams baby can’t even feel. Sleepers have easy snaps from neck to foot. Fabrics are pre-washed and in addition to being organic they are certified by OEKO-TEX® Standard 100.
Nuna Pipa Car Seat: This is by far my favorite car seat for so many reasons! It is made with OKEO-TEX fabrics and fiber fill and all plastics/metals comply with European REACH and EN71 standards as well as CPSIA in the US. The company strives to be green in their manufacturing process by using solar panels, recycled packaging, recycled water and plastic waste, and more to keep their carbon footprint down. The seat is lightweight, has a 5 point safety harness, infant insert for smaller babies, removable two-position sun canopy with mesh window, and several more features.
Baby Jogger City Mini GT: This stroller is perfect for any adventure you and baby may take. All-terrain wheels let you decide how far you want to go off the beaten path. And with little touches like an adjustable handlebar to adapt to the parent’s height, and a hand-operated parking brake, the City Mini GT is very accommodating. Several features make this an optimal choice for your little one’s stroller!
The Nesting Pillow: This 100% organic nursing pillow has a quarter moon-shape to provide the perfect “nest” for nursing babies. It’s unique filling conforms to baby’s body — simply reposition the interior filling to achieve and maintain the ideal nursing position. The most comfortable nursing pillow available for mothers and babies of all sizes!
Honest Organic Healing Balm: This is my go-to for my little one’s diaper rashes. It is formulated with certified organic sunflower, olive, and coconut oils as well as enriching shea butter to nourish, moisturize, and help soothe sensitive and dry skin. Plant and botanically based, this must-have salve is effective and powerful while also being ultra gentle and sensitive for baby.
Nuna Leaf Curv: The powerless and noiseless Nuna LEAF does not require any cords or electricity for movement — simply give a soft push to start a soothing rocking motion and it continues on its own without assistance. The Nuna Leal Curv features certified organic fabrics, a locking mechanism for feedings or playtime and a removable base for easy storage and portability.
Organic Swaddle Blankets: These generously sized 48″ X 48″ swaddle blankets are made with 100% organic cotton muslin. Luxuriously soft, these are the ideal fabric to use on baby’s delicate skin.
Born Free Glass Bottles: When I returned to work and my daughters had to use a bottle, this was the only bottle they would take. The body of the bottle is made entirely of glass, making it naturally non-toxic and easy to clean. The bottles feature patented ActiveFlow Venting Technology that reduce air pressure and vacuum buildup, resulting in reduced gas and colic symptoms. The leak-free vent allows baby to control the flow of milk, and helps to prevent nipple confusion. Highly recommend these bottles!
ErgoBaby Organic Carrier: A baby carrier is a definite must-have item for mom and baby. This hands-free way of carrying your little one offers both convenience and bonding. The award-winning design of the Ergobaby Baby Carrier holds baby in an ergonomic, natural sitting position. The padded waistbelt ensures baby’s weight is evenly distributed between your hips and shoulders while the adjustable, cushy padded shoulder straps provide you with ultimate comfort.
Be on the Sea Activity Floor Mat: This activity mat has a 100% cotton shell and lets baby explore the wonders of the seven seas from the comfort of the nursery. It features a school of appliqued and embroidered sea creatures, rouched fabric for a wavelike texture and soft padding for extra comfiness.
Keekaroo Height Right High Chair: I love this chair because it is free of BPA, PVC, Phthalate, Latex, and Nitrosamine. It is constructed of sustainable rubberwood and finished with a plant based lacquer. It has a plastic tray (fits over the wooden tray) which can be easily removed and washed with soap and water for clean up. Additionally it is not awkwardly tall like so many other highchairs- so baby is at level with the rest of the family at mealtime. The entire tray portion can also be removed so you can push the chair right up to your table as well. The chair is JPMA certified and to the highest ASTM standards for children up to 3 years old. The best part of this chair is that it is cost comparable to many other conventional highchairs.
Honest Diapers & Wipes Bundle: Theses are the only diapers and wipes I have used on my two youngest daughters. I absolutely love the convenience of having the eco-friendly diapers and wipes delivered straight to my doorstep however often I need. The diapers are made from chlorine-free wood pulp (harvested from certified sustainably managed forests) and contain no optical brighteners. They have an absorbent bio-core and plant-based PLA (inner and outer layers). The wipes are biodegradable and ultra thick and strong. Made from Oeko-Tex® certified medical-grade cloth they gently cleanse and soothe with plant extracts that help support healthy skin.
Angel Baby Body Wash & Shampoo: I love this line of baby care products as they only use natural, non-toxic ingredients to create their products. This gentle castile-based baby body wash is made with soothing organic Calendula and is naturally detergent-free. Free of synthetic fragrances, Triclosan, phthalates, parabens and harsh sulfates.
Nuna Sena Mini Play Yard: This portable crib and play-yard is made with 100% Oeko-Tex certified fabric. It’s super comfortable for baby with a quilted mattress pad and cushioned bed. One-of-a-kind zigzag leg construction makes for simple opening and and one-handed closing.
