  • What kind of stuff are you looking for? Honestly, I use Dr. Bronner's Soaps and beyond that I generally make my own stuff like Diaper Ointment and Nipple cream. And rather than using baby oil or lotion which are usually Petroleum based, I just use Almond Oil. I look at it this way, if I can't eat it I shouldn't put it on my skin, or my babies skin.

  • Natural doesn't actually mean anything. It isn't a regulated term for manufacturers and so they can slap that label on whatever they want to. The only "natural" thing in it could be water! I use California Baby products, which you can find online or at some Target stores and at Whole Foods. You should check www.cosmeticsdatabase.org for the very safest. They rate thousands of products by category for safety!

  • Avoid plastics.

    I love the Baby O Baby brand

    Mothernature.com generally has the best prices (and usually 15% off)
