I can’t believe our little girl is already 10 months old. These last few months have just flown by, but at the same time it’s almost like I can’t remember what life was like before her! The first few weeks and months were of course, a huge learning curve. And even now she still grows and changes so frequently that we are constantly adapting as a family (hello, sleep training!!). But at this point, there are a few tried and true products that we can’t live without, which I’m sharing with you today.
When we had Honor it was important to us that everything we gave or used on her was safe for babies, with natural ingredients whenever possible. We did a ton of research, and after a lot of trial and error found the ones that work best for us. Shop everything below, and don’t forget to share your favorite baby products with me in the comments – I always love to learn about new products from my fellow mummy readers!
Baby Bum SPF: This has been Honor’s first Summer, so we’ve been making the most of it by spending lots of time outside. It’s been amazing, but we always want to make sure her delicate baby skin is safe from burning and UV rays, especially in LA. This sunscreen by Baby Bum is perfect for sensitive skin, is hypoallergenic and also plant based – which is amazing as so many SPFs out there contain toxic ingredients. It’s also water resistant, which is perfect for family pool days!
Child’s Farm: This is a wonderful British brand started by a mum, and I had so many messages from my followers on social media that it made me really keen to find and try it. We got this after-swim cleanser which washes away chlorine, and they also make lovely skincare and bath products for babies and children which are all dermatologist approved.
Dr Sturm: Dr. Barbara Sturm already has an amazing range of skincare and beauty products for adults, so it’s no surprise that her new range for babies is fab too. We love this body lotion – and did I mention that the packaging is also ridiculously cute??
Simply Coconuts: I use this organic coconut oil on any dry patches of skin Honor might have after the bath, and they also make lovely wipes and degradable nappy bags.
Honest Company Hand Sanitizer: We love this spray in the grapefruit flavor. While so many sanitizers have nasty or harsh ingredients in them like alcohol, parabens, and triclosans, this one is formulated without any of those (and smells heavenly!).
California Baby: This baby brand makes lovely products like this bath wash, which can be used on both hair and skin. We use it sparingly (every second bath), and it’s very gentle on her skin. It’s free of chemicals like sulfates and irritating perfumes.
Babyganics Diaper Cream: Let’s face it, diaper rash is bound to happen! This one has gentle, plant based ingredients and is great for both treatment and prevention.
WaterWipes: These baby wipes are 99.9% purified water with just a drop of fruit extract. Other wipes can have so much rubbish in them, even if they are labelled as ‘fragrance free’ or ‘natural’. These are so gentle that they’re safe from birth onward, and you can even use them to clean baby’s hands if they get dirty.
A-Derma Emollient Cleansing Gel: I heard about this bath wash and searched four pharmacies in Paris until I found it! As soon as I showed it on my stories, I had so many messages from you guys also raving about it. It’s good for sensitive skin and eczema, as it’s super mild an pH balanced.
Mustela Baby Cream: Speaking of eczema, we just found out that Honor has it, so we’ve been using this cream which is made from avocado oil, and is great for preventing flare ups.
