alternative baby products?

Not sure where I should've posted this but....
Ok so I'm due in a less than a month and I was looking for a nice set of baby lotions, bath, hair and skin stuff. But I wanted an alternative to the regular junk like johnsons thats in the store. This is part of my baby steps program into the natural world. I do have a budget though and I am not about to spend $20 on a bar of soap!
Any suggestions or reviews on these types of products. Brick and mortar stores preferred but online is fine too.
thanks

Burt's Bees is really good, and you can get it lots of places (I know we have it at Barnes n Nobles and in lots of boutiques) I prefer Northern Essence, but you have to get that online. http://www.northernessence.com/catalog.php

Re: alternative baby products?

I highly recommend Burts Bees. They have a new "no tears" baby wash. I LOVE it! It smells nice, without being too perfumey. And it doesn't contain a lot of the harmful chemicals that other baby washes do. You can check out their products at www.burtsbees.com . Most healthfood stores carry them, and you can probably ask them to order something if they don't have it in stock. I know my local Cracker Barrel restaurant carries some of their products too- in case you may have one of those nearby.

Good luck!

Re: alternative baby products?

I google and find small companies and etailers who sell stuff. Some are cheap. some are exspensive. You have to sift through it all but you can find some really cool products out there by doing that.

I love Burt's Bees - you can buy it online, at a store or you can search and buy it through an online coop - you can save a ton doing that!

Arbonne baby stuff is good too. I am a consultant, if you want to order some I can give you my consultant id. Not meaning to spam, but you can pm me if interested.

Im a HUGE California Baby lover. I have several of their products but I do think its a little pricey, but well worth it.

Also, www.northernessense.com is great too and a lot more affordable and a quality product

Burts Bees is also great. Love the apricot oil

Also www.ignitethesenses.com has some GREAT natural baby products and a very reasonable rate I love her Coconut Milk Bath

Re: alternative baby products?

I like Burts Bees and you can get a baby "kit" that is reasonably priced, lasts quite a while, and gives you the chance to try out a bunch of their different stuff which I thought was good 'cause that way I knew if it would work w/ my baby's skin or not. Their buttermilk soap smells so good, too!
