How about a natural baby gift basket, with things like lotions, shampoo and baby wash?
Anyone who has looked at the ingredient label of common baby body products can tell you there's some pretty scary stuff inside. Even the top brands that everyone knows have a lot of synthetic chemicals added in. Of course, some say it's debatable whether those additives and preservatives are really harmful or not. But, some very common baby bath product ingredients are known carcinogens.
If the mom on your list is into all-natural and organic then she'll be delighted with an organic baby gift basket! Wondering how to get baby off to the best start with bath and body products that are better for that delicate new skin?
Any baby cleanser should be tear-free to gently clean baby's skin and hair without irritating his eyes. Babies don't really need a separate shampoo and body wash. Why add two new bottles to the bathroom when one bottle of baby wash- hair and body cleanser, will do the trick?
Real true soap is made from oils. These oils gently clean and moisturize the skin at the same time. What you won't find in natural baby wash or soap is all that gunk that really has no place in baby products.
A new baby's skin is naturally so soft that babies don't truly need lotion. The one place a baby is likely go get dry skin is on her head (called cradle cap). Pure coconut oil is perfect for this very common baby condition. Coconut oil is solid at room temperature but quickly turns to liquid in your hand from your body heat. You can find it in the baking section of your natural food store. It's a simple one ingredient solution! Typical baby lotion has all kinds of preservatives, and about a zillion ingredients. Pick some up for your natural baby gift basket.
Baby bath products are one of the more obvious ideas for an organic baby gift basket. But, don't stop here. Check out some other baby items that will go quite nicely in a natural baby gift basket.
