Every Thursday I send an email with three quick tips to brighten your day and help you and your family lead a more natural life. Want to get it?
As a crunchy mama, I hope you make the decision to cloth diaper. It’s such a great practice for baby and planet! Trust me, I wasn’t that excited about spraying poop of off a diaper but it actually isn’t that bad (and the benefits are worth it!) I do realize that it doesn’t work for every parent (some daycares won’t allow it) and for every baby (some have sensitive skin that just won’t tolerate cloth), so we have a full gamut of diapering tools in this section…
I always keep a little jar of coconut oil in our diaper drawer. For mild irritation, coconut oil usually does the trick. For more serious diaper rash, Lansinoh’s Diaper Cream is a good option.
This cute, mini trash is for your used wipes.
We love this liner! It comes in fun baby colors and beats plastic bags. We bought two and wash one each time we do diapers.
You’ll need a place to stash all your used cloth diapers. This is a great, slim can that holds in odors.
Keep it clean, mama.
Don’t let an accident ruin your changing table pad.
Depending on your home décor, ﬁnd one that is made of non-toxic materials, straps your baby in, and will grow with your child.
Using cloth wipes is a great eco-friendly choice. These are generous in size, wash well, are super soft and made of completely non-toxic ingredients.
If the cloth wipes are not your thing, these wipes are the cleanest ones out there. Beware as many wipes labeled as “natural” have some nasty and/or hidden ingredients.
Love these organic and airy changing table pad covers and lots of cute styles to chose from!
Thankfully, we’re done with the poop talk. But mama’s (and papa’s) work is never finished! Babies can be pretty messy, so you’ll want to load up your registery with some important cleaning products to help take care of all that mess.
This is the big question. Do you register for your baby at Target? Walmart? Local boutiques?
I'm kind of an Amazon junkie. (Once you experience traditional store visits with a toddler, you'll see why :) ) And Amazon has a great baby registry service. They even let you add products from other websites. You can check out Amazon's baby registry right here.
The best reason to register with Amazon is that most people already have an account, which makes it easy on your friends and family.
And no matter where you register, I wish you a fantastic pregnancy, a really fun baby shower, and a smooth, natural, healthy delivery!
