Safe, Natural and Organic Baby Products
It is hard to believe that my youngest daughter just turned two. What? How did that happen? She is an official toddler and has been moved to the youngest ‘preschool’ class up from daycare. She is doing and saying things that are familiar from our experience with our oldest daughter, but she has such a distinct personality that this time around it feels like a whole new experience. One thing that remains the same is that both our girls have my very sensitive skin. I have a secret (ok, maybe not so secret thanks to this blog) love of hair and body products probably due to my own hypoallergenic needs so when I hear about new products for babies and children on the market, there is something inside of me that says, ‘you must try this’. And you might be thinking, “Is there really much difference in shampoos, conditioners and lotions?”, and to that I say, “YES!”
I recently learned about the company called Wellements Baby products and they not only have a new shampoo and conditioner in their product line, they also offer a variety of health related natural and organic baby products. Oh so exciting! This Scottsdale, AZ based company’s products are now available at your local Walgreens and all of their products are made with simple, natural and organic ingredients.
Wellements Baby Shampoo & Wash is a natural and tear-free formula that is perfect for cleaning your little one. There is only certified organic ingredients so there are no toxic preservatives, chemicals and additives. It is fragrance-free and has aloe juice included so it is great for sensitive skin and is hypo-allergenic. It is gentle enough to use everyday and made right here in the USA.
Hello my new favorite conditioner for my girls! The Wellements Conditioner & Detangler leaves your child’s hair baby soft and keeps their hair tangle free naturally. That is very important for our curly headed little girl. The conditioner has a light airy smell and, after reading the ingredients, think the yummy smell comes from the apple fruit extract that is included in the list. Made in the USA with no parabens, BPA, phalates or GMO’s, the Wellements Conditioner & Detangler now tops my fav list of baby hair products.
The Wellements Baby Organic Gripe Water is their signature product. Where was this product when we were dealing with Brie’s colic? I promise you I think we tried everything we could find to help ease her stomach discomfort when she was a baby and it was a long six months before she would sleep a solid four hours straight. Yes, it was a LONG six months. Wellements Baby Organic Gripe Water is an herbal supplement that safely and effectively helps to ease stomach discomfort and gas often associated with colic, teething and hiccups. Their Organic Gripe Water is free of fillers, binders, artificial ingredients, yeast, gluten, dairy, soy and alcohol. As with all natural and organic homeopathic medicine, it is not regulated by the FDA. It comes in a 100% recyclable glass bottle that is BPA and phthalate free.
Wellements Baby Move is a natural formula designed to help infants and toddlers with occasional constipation. It is made with organic prune concentrate and prebiotics and is made to be gentle and safe for infants 6 months and older. It is naturally sweetened with prune juice and is free of gluten, dairy, soy, alcohol, added sugar and artificial ingredients. It is pleasant tasting and can also be mixed with things like water or juice to help your baby move things along. As with all natural and organic homeopathic medicine, it is not regulated by the FDA. It comes in a 100% recyclable glass bottle that is BPA and phthalate free.
Much to our relief, Brie is in the last stages of getting her molars. We have been fans of using clove oil to soothe her gums when teething is particularly painful. Wellements Baby Teeth Relief is an all natural formula made with olive oil, white willow bark oil, clove oil and natural vitamin E. It is designed to safely and naturally help soothe and support gums during teething. It is free of benzocaine, gluten, dairy, soy, alcohol, added sugar, and artificial ingredients. As with all natural and organic homeopathic medicine, it is not regulated by the FDA. It comes in a 100% recyclable glass bottle that is BPA and phthalate free.
Wellements Baby Tiny Voices is an all natural herbal formula made with elderberry and marshmallow root made in the USA. It is for children ages 2+, which was exciting to us since Brie just turned two and gets the same dreaded cough this time each year like her older sister (seriously, Austin, TX, are you trying to hurt us?). The formula is made to support the upper respiratory systems and comfort and sooth tiny voices. It is a great way to help the girls with their seasonal immune support. It has a berry flavor and is free of gluten, dairy, soy, alcohol, added sugar and artificial ingredients. As with all natural and organic homeopathic medicine, it is not regulated by the FDA. It comes in a 100% recyclable glass bottle that is BPA and phthalate free.
I was pleasantly surprised at how much I loved the Wellements Baby Products and, in particular, their new Conditioner & Detangler. I love finding natural and organic products because I do think it is important to try and only use all-natural products on babies and children because they are far more sensitive to all the chemicals that are out there. Wellements also have a ‘Learn More’ section on their website for more info on colic, immune support and baby constipation you may find beneficial. For those dealing with colic at the moment, I salute you and will tell you it does EVENTUALLY get better. I now have a newly christened two-year old to prove it.
