Babies are sensitive and fragile. They require all their parents’ time and attention. However, often parents can be deceived into buying products they think are of the best quality to use on their precious children. Sadly, many common bath products, even including baby shampoos, contain cancer-causing chemicals like 1,4-dioxane and formaldehyde. Not only are many popular baby products dangerous to their health, but they can be damaging to the environment too. Many of the necessary products necessary for babies product a lot of waste, so it can be difficult trying to reduce waste while also looking for safe baby products.
We want to help make this journey easier for you, so we’ve put together 15 plant-based, eco-friendly, and non-toxic essential baby products that are available on Amazon! With products like this, you can feel better about the products you’re using for the environment, but especially for your baby’s wellbeing.

Tasha says, “Love that they’re biodegradable. Do a great clean up job, although it’s sometimes hard to get a wipe out of the package and can end up yanking out several on accident – I usually pull out a few before I take the diaper off to avoid any last-minute emergencies.”

My infant has the most sensitive skin in the world and she has switched to this with no issue! It doesn’t leave a soap film on the top of the water after I’ve washed my toddler and she’s playing. I feel good about using it, and that’s super important.”

The bamboo handles are made with an ergonomic design and the scoop is soft and wouldn’t bump or scrape your baby’s gums. This pack of 5 spoons costs $15.99.
An Amazon customer says, “I purchased this set mainly because of what it is made out of but also because I needed a spoon that was not a slim metal handle and was wider than the metal spoons with the slim tip. My daughter grabs at the spoon and I always worried she might hurt her hand. Another benefit is because the spoon is so soft (but definitely sturdy) she can chew on it no problem. She is teething and everything is an opportunity to bite down. The spoons are just as beautiful and vibrant in person as they are in the photo. Love them!”

Most teethers for babies are plastic (why I don’t know), too big for little hands, too hard for soft little gums and terrible aimers. It was important I found something that works while both baby and mom approved and this is definitely it. My baby loves each one of these and I’m so glad I found this brand!”
