Looking for the perfect "green" baby gift?
Buy something useful and safe!
I can't tell you how many useless baby gifts we have received over the years from well-meaning friends and family; well, I COULD tell you, but you wouldn't care to listen. The most difficult part of any baby shower for me is going home and sorting through everything, trying to figure out what is actually safe to keep.
And then of course, I start to consider how much money was not only wasted on purchasing unsafe products for my baby, but adding up in my head all of the useless products purchased for all babies every year in the name of good intentions. Those billions of dollars spent annually, just a dollar here and there, on cheap plastic toys filled with cancer-causing chemicals, clothing doused in toxic flame retardants, and enough estrogen mimicking ingredients in typical baby bath products to make them grow their own breasts at birth (regardless of gender). I know that these well-meaning parents, friends, and family wouldn't even touch these products if they had even the slightest clue at what they were REALLY giving this baby as a gift: cancer, hormone disruption, early puberty onset, decreased fertility, asthma....the list goes on and on.
And so, as a parent, I'm here to ask you, pretty much BEG of you, to please look into the products you are buying, whether for yourself or as a gift. Ensure you are giving only the gift you intend; not the toxic byproducts and diseases of so many products sitting on the shelves. Even though it may seemingly cost more upfront, it's a better value for several reasons:
*LAST LONGER: higher quality products usually require a lesser amount to achieve effectiveness
*HEALTHIER: lifetime of health costs saved due to healthier choices from birth
*ECO-FRIENDLY: less pollution, less impact on the environment
*GIFT TO FUTURE GENERATIONS: knowledge, health, wellness, wisdom, and a healthier world!
I promise, in the long run, not only will your gift mean more, work better, and create less damage, but if you can share the knowledge behind why you chose this gift over others, you plant a seed of knowledge in that parent, enabling them
to make better decisions for themselves and their families in the future. Now, THAT is truly a gift worth giving!
One of the BEST gifts you can buy for a new baby are safe bath products! This is a universal need of all children, they require frequent cleaning, and to accomplish this without drying their delicate skin, you need a sensitive baby wash and lotion, just like that offered by Babo Botanicals. The ingredients are pure, safe, and gentle yet effective. Gentle lathering and easy to rinse, the Oatmilk Calendula newborn gift set cleanses baby, but leaves their skin soft and feeling like...well, feeling like a baby's bottom!
Includes: baby Shampoo and wash, moisturizing baby lotion, baby bunny soap trio, organic washcloth, & natural jute reusable gift bag
Scent: It reminds me of a soft cinnamon bun, fresh from the oven; my husband swears it smells like his cologne....either way, this is not your typical "baby" scent, it is soft and warm, inviting - just begging for little kisses on those sweet tiny toes!
