Less is More

When it comes to baby wash and baby lotion for my kiddos, the fewer ingredients in a product, and the more natural the ingredients are, the better off we’ll be!

We’re blessed to have two happy, healthy babies in our house. They’re rambunctious, hilarious, feisty, sweet and generally add a sweetness to our world.

I’d like to think they’ve inherited the best possible combination of traits from my husband and I… not that I’m biased or anything.

But, I can tell you right now, there’s one thing they’ve both inherited from me that we could all probably do without. My ridiculously sensitive skin.

For as long as I can remember, my skin has reacted to the slightest provocation. Mosquito bite that someone else barely feels? Mine swells to the size of a giant marble. Want to wear some fun costume jewelry earrings for a night out? Sure, as long as you’re fine with your ears turning a fiery shade of red and itching for days. Basically, any man-made, artificial ingredient is going to create a painful reaction that’s just the pits.

It’s taken me about 30 years, but I’ve finally figured out what works for me. And given that I’m now responsible for two tiny humans who have the same ridiculous skin as mine, you can be darn sure that I’m going to be careful about what I put on their skin too.

So what rule do we live by? Less is more.

When it comes to baby wash and baby lotion for my kiddos, the fewer ingredients in a product, and the more natural the ingredients are, the better off we’ll be!

Green Beaver is my go-to brand for a bunch of personal care items (shampoo, deodorant, etc.) and now we use their Fragrance Free Baby Wash and Fragrance Free Baby Lotion for the kids too! They are completely natural, there are no additional irritants in the formula, and the baby wash is tear-free. Oh, and did I mention the lotion is buttery smooth? Honestly, the kids love them, I feel great about using them, and we all know that we’ll wake up comfortable and rash-free in the morning.

That’s a giant win in my books.
