Green Living's Eco Baby Checklist

Healthy green products for peace of mind

Bath time

Your baby’s bath time should be fun, relaxing and, most important, safe. Unfortunately, many common bath products (even those marketed as “safe” and “gentle”) contain toxins linked to cancer and other health problems. Opt for healthier baby care products with natural ingredients mild enough for your wee one’s skin. Download Environmental Defence’s pocket guide to the top 10 ingredients to avoid while shopping, and learn about “label-ese.” For fun in the tub, splash around with Alfie, the rubber duck made from sustainably produced, 100 percent natural rubber—free of BPA, phthalates and PVC. When bath time is over, wrap your baby in this cute hooded towel, made from 100 percent organic cotton.
