Eco Ike owner Faith Moser launched her line of natural, fair-trade onesies and t-shirts in 2007, shortly after her son Ike was born. Passionate about the environment, Moser has striven to make smart choices about her line, including using non-toxic water-based inks for the designs.

But Moser’s focus on the environment goes beyond her products.  From receipt paper to packing materials, she chooses recycled and environmentally friendly items.  That’s an environmentally-conscious company.

Not only are these adorable and colorful onesies and tee’s the softest I have ever felt (so soft I wish they came in adult sizes), they are printed with the sweetest, simple and original captions and graphics, sure to make your baby the star of the playgroup.  Items are all natural, 100% fair trade and sweatshop-free.  Moreover, eco ike donates 5% of their proceeds to environmental non-profits.  I like that!

We all know it costs a bit more for organic items, especially quality, 100% certified organics, but I think at $22 – $24, you’ll agree this beautiful, quality line is also eco-friendly on the wallet!

So much care and attention goes into preparing for a new baby, and it’s only natural that you would want to provide the very best.

One of the decisions that new parents are faced with is whether to choose a traditional or organic crib mattress.  Organic crib mattresses work just as well as traditional mattresses but have the added benefit of being free from chemicals.  Here are some considerations to help you in your purchasing decision:

1. By purchasing organically made products, such as a crib mattress, you are influencing the marketplace with your dollars.  The more people purchase organic products, the more they are likely to be provided in the future.  Because organically grown cotton reduces the use of pesticides in fields, your purchase is helping the environment.

2. Switching from a traditional crib mattress to an organic crib mattress may be more than just an eco-friendly move.  It may be a matter of safety.  Many traditional crib mattresses contain a number of materials with questionable effects.  Experts are starting to look at everything from polyurethane foam to chemical fire retardants to see what kinds of effects they may have on growing babies.

3. Some experts say that organic crib mattresses, with their natural ingredients, allow air to flow freely through the mattress.  The better air circulation may help your baby breathe better.  In addition, some studies suggest that the organic cotton may lead to a lower incidence of allergic reactions.

4. Due to the recent interest in organic baby products, be wary of any misuse of the word “organic” in the marketplace.  You want to make sure that you are getting a certified organic mattress.  You can also call the Organic Consumers Association to get a list of accredited organic retailers.

5. If you’re purchasing your organic crib mattress online, you need to read the fine print and look through the list of components.  A mattress may say that it’s organic, but lists polyurethane in the components, for example, it can’t be 100 percent organic.

6. Organic crib mattresses are more expensive than traditional crib mattresses.  But given the fact that a new baby spends 70 percent of her time sleeping, it might be worth a little bit extra to get an organic crib mattress. When you lay your baby down on something you know is chemical free, you may find that you rest easier yourself.  Some of your better online retailers offer free shipping on large purchase items like organic mattresses.

Babies have been sleeping on traditional mattresses for a long time, so don’t be overly alarmed by the claims or warnings that you might read online while researching organic baby gear.  That said, with so many chemicals in our world today, it might make sense to research your options before making this important purchase.

HugaMonkey Organic Baby Sling

A wonderful trend is sweeping the nation, and unlike most trends, this one seems like it’s here to stay.  The trend I’m talking about is baby wearing.  There are many benefits to baby wearing and now there are even more choices in how to wear your baby.  So, let’s start with the benefits:

Wearing baby close to your body, makes them feel safe and secure.  Whether it’s mom, dad, grandma, grandpa or an aunt or uncle doing the baby wearing, baby has that extra sense of closeness and a special kind of bonding takes place.  You also have your hands free to do other things, which is a big bonus if you have a fussy little one that wants to be held all the time.  When my little one was an infant, the best choice out there was the Baby Bjorn, and while I loved it and carried her in it until she was 10 months old (always facing me), it was a big cumbersome and awkward.  How I wish I had all the choices then that we have now. 

So what is my favorite baby carrier on the market today?  Well, it’s hard to pick a favorite since there are a lot of great ones out there, but one new to the market really has me smitten.  The organic baby sling by HugaMonkey is not only attractive, inexpensive and eco-friendly, its cool sling design has no slipping, no rings, no folding and no fuss.  These high quality slings are fashioned from a single cut of breathable, durable, soft natural fabric with quadruple over lock stitching that prevents fraying and provides strength so that the body-conforming tube with seat pouch is adaptable to carry infant or toddler with cuddly support.  The fabric consists of 60% organic cotton and 40% natural bamboo and is moisture and wrinkle-resistant.  It’s machine washable and just right for newborns up to age 3 or 30 pounds.

Priced at an affordable $40 and with so many great prints, you might want to buy more then one.  The sling is made from made from earth-friendly organic bamboo.  How cool is that?  Good for baby and good for the environment.  Purchase your sling at www.motherearthandbaby.com and HugaMonkey today!

Alright, I’ll admit it, when my daughter was an infant there were two things that made me really nervous.  One was bathing her and the other was clipping her miniscule, translucent fingernails.  (We’ll discuss the fingernails tomorrow.)  When bathing my daughter in the sink, I was always afraid she’d slip out of my hands and bang her sweet little head on the porcelein.  If I bathed her in the baby tub, she would cry like she was being tortured.  She didn’t like the reclined position or having parts of her exposed to the cold. 

How I wish I had known about these wonderful European tubs.  Designed from your baby’s point of view, this bath allows your baby to sit in a natural upright position and keeps your baby warm and relaxed in the bath. Babies love this tub.  Parents love it too because it is easy to use, comforting and secure for your baby.

Made by Spa Baby with this guarantee – your baby will not cry in this tub.  If your baby doesn’t love this tub, you can return it for a full refund.   Some other great features; they’re BPA Free and 100% recycleable.  Fill the tub with an organic hooded bath towel or wrap, washclothes, bamboo After bath hat, organic pajamas and all natural baby products and you have the perfect baby gift!
