I was inspired to write this post when I came across a product that I had searched what felt like the entire internet for, casually made its way to me via an ad, several years later. I put in WORK to find the safest available products for my little one. It was not easy. Now, with information being shared so readily, companies are realizing people really don't prefer chemicals and toxins all over their babies and the gear and toys that they use ::lightbulb::. Here are some of our extensively curated favorites for the infant stage and a prayer that your research is much easier because there is more available!

The fit of this brand is so cozy and wonderful. I prefer the snaps be this way because it is easy to change baby and it looks way more comfortable that the zippers, which all tend to pucker.
So soft and durable!
By far, the softest swaddles we found. They also make a great towel. And they come in lots of beautiful solid colors in addition to pretty patterns!
We have used this since our first baby’s first bath. It is amazing on sensitive skin types and does an amazing job as an adult shampoo too.
This is a newer brand and we love it. The diapers fit baby so great and do not have a bunch of extra bulk.
This brand out performed any other in longest time it was able to be worn. The way they are cut allows them to wear it for many months. They are very high quality as well.
Such a great mattress brand!
This was one of the best things a fellow parent recommended. The manual versions are my great to have on hand and in the diaper bag, but this one is amazing at home!
This is amazing. Light weight and easy to assemble too!
This is also amazing. And not electronic! (Do your homework on that).
There are so many amazing resources now as well for help with learning how to shop and not be green-washed. Two of my absolute favorites are Nontoxic Munchkin and Sprout San Francisco.
It took us TWO YEARS.
We were spending tons of money on a certain big brand sanitizing spray because it was the safest one I could find. Then the pandemic happened. So, not only was it very expensive, but I couldn't even find it anywhere.
How were we in a situation where we had to sanitize everything, but could hardly
(if at all) find the tools with which to do that???!
I couldn't even find the stuff that had horrible EWG scores.
That was the deciding point. We bought the Force of Nature cleaner!
It is fabulous. As I try to keep these blog posts as quick reads, I will point you to the link to read about the science and effectiveness. It is really easy to use (and fun for the kids to watch)! To make the "family-friendly, multi-purpose cleaner that replaces kitchen, bath, glass cleaners, disinfectants & deodorizers"*, you simply fill the base to the fill line with clean water, twist open and pour in the contents of a capsule, and push the start button. Once, I pushed start before I added the capsule and it actually knew and alerted me to that. That boosted my confidence even more.
I really enjoy not feeling like I am overpaying for a much-needed product and not having to worry about toxic chemicals in the house via "cleaning" supplies. "It’s on the EPA’s List N, the disinfectants approved for use against SARS-CoV-2, the cause of COVID-19."*
The kits include everything you need. Note: each bottle of cleaner lasts for one week, so keep that in mind when deciding on capsule amount.
I cringe at the thought of going back to other cleaners. We hope you love it just as much for your home!
