I have been in mommy prep mood for a few months now. No I am not pregnant (yet) but as I prepare to go that direction, took an opportunity to visit the New York Baby Show with MomTrends’ New York Baby Show Bloggers Lounge #NYBSBloggerLounge. I got to check out the next and best in natural, eco, and organic brands. Below I share some of my favorite finds of what I’ll be adding to my mommy arsenal.
Protect Baby’s Skin
Le Petit Créme
In Europe, hospital and pediatrician recommend a multipurpose lotion to new moms that is known to protect against 5 of the main causes of diaper rash: chafing or rubbing, introduction of new foods/stool change, increased frequency of stools, acidity of stool and urine, and sensitive skin. Le Petit Creme created the natural version of this diaper lotion which is hypoallergenic and made with only 6 ingredients: olive oil, water, beeswax, vegetable glycerin, vitamin e, and limestone. It also adds a protective layer on the skin so you’re not only wiping away waste but protecting the skin.
Put Baby to Sleep
This is the Alma Papa Solid Wood Crib and the Coco Lounger Natural.
The crib is made from solid american birch wood & finished in low voc paints & stains and grows with baby to 4 years old. It is compact and fits even in smaller apartments.
The lounger is a favorite and made from baltic birch bentwood, free of lead, BPA, phthalates, PVC, formaldehyde & flame retardants. The seat pad is available as 100% organic cotton.
New Castle Classic
I love this soft, natural bamboo muslin crib sheets and muslins. The swaddle can be used as a stroller or nursing cover, changing pad cover, and anything that you could think of. I’m excited to use these as a baby holder like my mom use to do and tie me on her back. Because the fabric is breathable, it reduces the risk of the baby overheating.
For Mommy’s Milk
For increasing breast milk yield, the More Milk Plus tincture or capsules would be a great edition post-partum. It should be taken after your milk starts to come in, so perhaps waiting a week or so. The active ingredients are organic fenugreek seed, blessed thistle, nettle leaf, and fennel seed.
“Suggested use: Take 1 capsule 4 times per day. Women over 175 lbs take 2 capsules 3 times per day. May be taken with 1-2 oz. of liquid. Avoid additional liquids 15 minutes before and after each use.
On the Go
Did you know car seats are required to pass rigorous fire safety tests? That means most of them use harmful flame retardants, which chemicals that are added or applied to materials in order to slow or prevent the start/growth of fire. The Henry and Jordan MESAs are the only car seats to that use natural Merino wool and its natural flame resistance. When exposed to flame, it resists catching fire, where artificial fibers may melt or burn.
The Tripp Trapp Chair is a Scandinavian design that is only eco-friendly because of the materials and design but because it grows with the child. And even adults can use the chair; I use it as well. Watch the below video as we show some of the features of the chair.
