With all the information out there about harmful chemicals in cleaning products, I only try to buy green products in my house. Lucky for me, I was recently introduced to dapple, “a line of products that were natural and safe for our babies, but also specifically targeted to clean the unique messes they leave behind.”

Sun and Sunscreen Safety!

The summer heat is approaching…time to slather on sunscreen when out to play. Babies under 6 months should not wear sunscreen and should be kept in the shade as much as possible. If you do need to sunscreen on a baby, use it sparingly. While it is okay to apply sunscreen to babies older then 6 months, use with caution.

Toxic Ingredients In Baby Bath and Body Products

Did you know that 60% of what you put on your skin is absorbed directly into your bloodstream? This means that all those products we are putting on our baby are not necessarily safe and can actually be dangerous to their long term health. Studies show that some ingredients found in personal care products have an adverse affect on the fully developed adult endocrine and nervous systems.

Exederm Baby Skin Care Line

My children have sensitive skin so I am very cautious about the products I use on their skin. I make sure the lotions, soaps and shampoos that I buy for them are as natural as can be. Many products for babies and children are labeled as Sensitive, Mild or Hypoallergenic but are actually not good enough for babies or children with eczema. Most of these products are for your “average” kid.
