Wondering about whether I am feeding my kids the "right" things or not is yet another exhausting - but totally worth it - part of being a mom. Thankfully, Beech-Nut Organics is helping us parents ease our worries with their new organic line of baby food. Made with real ingredients and simply prepared for the freshest taste possible, Beech-Nut ranks high on my "momma approved" list and is second only to food I prepare myself. With options that include no fuss, all-time favorites like "just carrots" and "just apples," plus yummy sounding mixes like "just apple, blueberry & cranberry" and "just banana, cinnamon & granola," I know Eliette will only be eating the good stuff.
Beech-Nut baby food retails for about $13 per pack of 10 4.25 ounce jars and is available in 20 new organic flavors.
Sensitive, itchy, irritated skin is an unfortunate part of my girls' lives. At just four weeks old, Eliette's soft newborn skin began getting rougher and redder as it was plagued by eczema, cradle cap and a dairy allergy. Needless to say, I'm careful with whatever comes in contact with her skin, which is why I'm loving SoftBaby and their line of organic cotton baby clothes. SoftBaby's onesies, rompers and playsuits are chemical-free, pesticide-free and made of 100 percent organic cotton. Plus they come in the most adorable, unisex prints, like palm trees and anchors. I'm partial to the pineapple print romper. Check it out on the Chicago Parent Instagram page! SoftBaby products retail for $40+.
Earth Mama Angel Baby
From pregnancy through the birth of Eliette and now in the fourth trimester, Earth Mama Angel Baby has had products which have helped me tremendously, both physically and emotionally. Their vast line of natural and organic products includes Organic Morning Wellness Tea (great for morning sickness), New Mama Bottom Spray (a postpartum must-have!), Calming Lavender Baby Lotion (gentle enough for aforementioned sensitive baby skin) and Organic Milkmaid Tea (perfect for increasing breastmilk production when returning to work).
I love Earth Mama Angel Baby’s commitment to providing safe, herbal-based products made with worry-free ingredients.
Earth Mama Angel Baby products retail for $3+ and their bundles make great baby shower gifts!
