New baby, Go Green! January 14, 2008

Filed under: gift ideas,Uncategorized — swimmom @ 9:02 am

I’ve got 3 babies on the way.

No not me, my sister and 2 of my friends are due to give birth in the next 6 months. I am at ends. Do I go with the common gifts and just hope they’re not recalled later ? Or do I go safe, non-toxic and natural the first time around?

I think this is a no-brainer.

Uncross your fingers!

Here are some great sites for that baby gifts that you can feel safe about giving to anyone.

Featuring everything from baby, toys to furniture and bedding, Pure Home Products has got you covered, naturally. Some of my favorites were the Halo Organic Sleep Sack and the Organic Veggie Toys by Under the Nile. I also like the Haba Zamba wooden baby Rattle. Cute enough to spark you babies interest and safe enough not to make you cringe every time it goes straight to their mouth.

You can shop the Organic Aisle for Eco-friendly shower gifts for baby and mom-to-be from Bunny Bury Baby. Pamper the mom-to-be with luxury organic skin care that is safe for the environment and the baby with the Organic Mommy Skin Care Bunch by Otopia. Complete with Stretch Mark Cream, Massage Oil, Breast Care Balm, Foot and leg Tonic and Body Cream, this is bound to make those last couple weeks a bit more manageable.

Give the little one a fresh start with the infant all natural bathing essential complete with a plush caterpillar wash cloth.

Cover the weekly onsie quota with this 7 days of Bodysuit Gift set from Kate Quinn .

Babies R Us is also “close to nature” with their extended Organics selection. They feature everything from bedding to baby skin care essentials with prices that can’t be beat. I loved the Mi Yim Organic Plush Rattle

and this Babybearshop Organic Gift Set with skin Care essentials for the mom-to-be.

I didn’t catch it online, but I know in the stores Gerber has an adorable line of Organic layette for baby.

These gifts are bound to make safe selections for mom and baby.
