There is nothing like caring for your first precious little baby to make you rethink what you're putting on both her skin and your own. That protective mama instinct is there all the time, even when you're browsing the baby shampoo at Target. Suddenly you find yourself scouring every label and googling scary- looking ingredient names, making sure there is nothing in her bubble bath that's going to give her cancer in 30 years.
After learning about some of the effects that certain chemicals can have on the body, I knew right away that I wanted to use the most natural products I could for my first baby. 20 months and a sibling later, I'm glad I chose to do so!
Since everything ends up going straight into babies' mouths (hands, toes, whatever they can get their hands on), I want to make sure that my products are safe, and my kids' are too! Yes, I want my sweet babies to have soft, smooth skin and smell baby fresh, but I'm not willing to sacrifice their health. Luckily there's no need to sacrifice since there are some great nontoxic baby products that actually work.
Here are my picks for the BEST Nontoxic Baby Products That Actually Work for Bath Time and Beyond:
The Best Nontoxic Baby Shampoo and Baby Body Wash:
Tubby Todd Hair & Body Wash I'm in love with the Lavender and Rosemary smell of this shampoo and body wash in one. It gets my babes squeaky clean! And I love that it's made by a family-run small business.
Primally Pure Baby Bar I love this creamy goat milk baby soap made with very few, high-quality ingredients. It's the best for giving your babies those sweet baths in the first delicate months. The Baby Bar is also great for washing your own face if you want something gentle!
The Best Nontoxic Baby Lotion:
Tubby Todd Everyday Lotion I love slathering my girls with this delicious-smelling, safe-for-everyday lotion. It leaves their skin (and my hands!) soft and smooth, and is safe for everyday use.
The Best Nontoxic Baby Ointment:
Tubby Todd All Over Ointment - This nontoxic ointment is super creamy and moisturizing. It is multipurpose and can be used on just about everything, helping to clear up everything from eczema to diaper rashes. I even have a jar for myself for my super dry winter hands!
The Best Nontoxic Diaper Cream:
The Honest Company Diaper Rash Cream We went through a phase where my first babe had a TON of dirty diapers each day and it was causing really bad chafing on her bottom. This all-natural diaper cream helped so much and has much fewer ingredients than most traditional diaper rash creams. Though you could also use the Tubby Todd All Over Ointment mentioned above on diaper rash and skip the cream altogether!
The Best Nontoxic Baby Powder:
Primally Pure Baby Powder After finding out that conventional baby powder may be linked to ovarian cancer, I basically banned it from my house, so I love that Primally Pure makes a talc-free nontoxic baby powder to keep baby's bottom soft and smooth and prevent chafing! And it smells so good!
The Best Nontoxic Baby Sunscreen:
Tubby Todd Mineral Mist, Sunscreen & Sunstick Tubby Todd for the win again! The mist is BY FAR the best nontoxic kids' sunscreen I've tried! I'm also obsessed with their nontoxic sunscreen stick. It is easy to apply and is perfect for protecting to babies' delicate faces. Most sunscreens use chemicals to block the sun's rays, but those same chemicals are potentially harmful, so it's better to stick to physical, mineral-based blockers. The problem with most mineral sunscreens is that they can be hard to apply, which is why I love the mist and stick for squirmy little ones!
The Best Nontoxic Diapers:
DYPER If you aren't quite into cloth diapers (I get it, it's a commitment!), these nontoxic disposable diapers are the next best thing! Traditional disposable diapers can have a lot of harsh chemicals, and then of course there's the whole landfill issue. I finally found Dyper bamboo diapers with no chlorine, latex, alcohol, perfumes, PVC, lotions, TBT or Phthalates. They also have no prints, so there's no ink to worry about. Even better, they are delivered right to my door so I could skip the Target run with two kids! Have you ever tried to put a box of diapers in a cart with a carseat in it? It's not easy.

And a few other natural remedies for babies that I love:
Mommy's Bliss Gripe Water Gripe Water saved our new parent lives for the first 4 colicky months of my first baby's life. It helped to soothe her tummy when she got fussy after eating (and in general). If you are having a baby any time soon, do yourself a favor and stock up on Gripe Water ahead of time!
Tubby Todd Chest Rub This chest rub has been a lifesaver for me! I've used it so many times to help my babes sleep when they get congested without relying on cold medicines. I have also used it myself, since it doesn't contain any of the icky ingredients in traditional chest rubs, and it's pregnancy and nursing safe!
After much trial (and some error!) with all-natural baby products over the years, these have been the best, tried-and-true nontoxic baby products I've depended on - and many I still use with my older kids! Do you have any favorites? Leave your recommendations in the comments!
