A Safer Baby Wash

I'm sickened by the ingredients that are added to our baby's products. There are so many parts of being a parent that are out of my control, that I must do what I can do keep my girls safe. You can read more about how most baby products out on the market now are unsafe, just by googling "safe baby wash". You can also see how your current product scores on the safety list at the Skin Deep website.

I was on a quest for a reasonably priced "safer" product line as well as one that I could buy at a brick and mortar instead of paying shipping fees. I came across the California Baby line, that you can find at your local Whole Foods Market. I purchased the lavendar scent which has a safety number of "2". The sensitive skin formula is rated even better at "1". The large pump was about $20, and should last me a very long time. The tiniest bit goes very far. The essential oils have a wonderful spa-like smell that isn't too overpowering. I am really happy with the shampoo, lotion and SPF.

Baby-safe Coffee Table

I've been on a quest for a "safe" coffee table for our living room for when the girls become mobile. Our living room is modern and I try to stay clutter-free. This ottoman at Target, is leather padded and just the right height for our 5 month olds to hold on to when standing. It is also serves as extra seating for visitors and extra storage for baby items we like to keep in our living room. It's a little small, so we purchased two and set them side by side. They are currently on sale at Target for $60 and also available in brown.
