Are you looking for natural and safe mom and baby products?
I often get asked my opinion about mom and baby products. What are the best products for mom and baby?
There are so many!!!
How do you choose between 50 different types of baby carriers, swaddles or diaper creams?
It can be overwhelming.
In short… there are SO MANY new baby gadgets and paraphernalia that you can simply LIVE WITHOUT!
Okay, I’m admitting here that I’m a bit of a minimalist… even before minimalism was popular!
Sure, it might be nice to have that wipe warmer or butt spatula, (yup, it’s a real thing!) but can you live without it? Sure you can.
Well… I have the advantage of seeing a lot of mom and baby products and I am constantly AMAZED at how often I see new products. It’s crazy, actually!!
But… not all mom and baby products are healthy or safe.
In fact, many are downright dangerous in my opinion! (chemicals, toxins, not conducive to safe sleep practices, etc)
So… in an attempt to help out new parents, I’ll share with you some of my favorites.
It’s a long list, but, here goes..
Best Online Childbirth/Breastfeeding Classes:
Birth “plans” don’t always go as planned, but if you are serious about preparing for a natural, drug-free birth, then this course gives you a good shot at it!
It is written by a certified nurse midwife and the bestselling author of The Mama Natural Week-by-Week Guide to Pregnancy & Childbirth .
This evidence-based online course is just simply amazing!
It prepares you physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually!
The instructors do a great job of presenting the material in a very fun, engaging way.
…And it’s not long and boring!
Not only do you get a childbirth class, but it includes a breastfeeding lesson and an online Facebook community!
It even comes with a really nice money-back guarantee, so you can try it out for 30 days, if you’d like!
Find out more about this affordable course HERE.
If you are not sure if you want a “natural” drug-free birth, then consider looking into Birth Boot Camp.
They have several great online classes for pregnancy, labor, birth and breastfeeding!
What I love about their classes is that they are very specific to each birthing situation… hospital, birth center and home birth.
Many of my doula colleagues also highly recommend them and you will love their experienced instructors and affordable online classes!
My Favorite Breastfeeding Resource
My Favorite Breastfeeding Mini Pocket Guide!
I just discovered this brand new breastfeeding resource published in 2019 that I absolutely LOVE!
Do you want to learn everything you need to know about breastfeeding, but you’re short on time?
Maybe you prefer not to spend the extra money on a breastfeeding class?
Or… you want to get your hands on a great breastfeeding user-manual?!
This is the PERFECT resource for you!!
Why do I recommend it?
1. It’s a quick & easy read that is PACKED with everything you need to know about breastfeeding, … in SMALL. DIGESTIBLE. BITES!
2. The author takes you day-by-day through the first week of breastfeeding and then week-by-week for the first 6 weeks! After that she walks you through each month of your baby’s first year.
3. This book is well-organized! It is easy to find the information that you need when you need it. (What to expect each month, what’s normal, what’s not, how to know if my baby is getting enough, how to recognize growth spurts, along with up-to-date, evidence-based breastfeeding tips for each week and month!
4. You can download Breastfeed Like a Boss to your phone or tablet and have it ready whenever you need it! It’s seriously like having a lactation consultant in your pocket!
5. It’s really affordable…. NO... REALLY!
My Favorite Pregnancy/Postpartum Planning Resources
I simply cannot review best products for mom and baby without including planning resources. Here are some of my favorites…
This affordable planner is one that I want to bring to your attention.
As a postpartum doula, I am VERY excited to recommend this great planning resource!
Why? Because I have witnessed so many new moms who are not prepared for their postpartum recovery and consequently have a much more difficult time recovering and adjusting to motherhood.
The Nesting Planner is a complete planner for pregnancy, childbirth, postpartum, breastfeeding and newborn care.
It is LOADED with printable checklists, worksheets and other planning tools.
It will help you get organized and stay on track throughout your entire pregnancy.
You will never miss a step with monthly checklists and reminders that easily itemize what must be done before the big day!
Learn more about the Nesting Planner here.
If you want an easier 4th trimester, make sure you stock up your freezer during pregnancy!
Consider having a cooking party with a couple friends and you can make short work of it while having fun.
I love this freezer meal bundle because Kelli has made it EASY for you! The kit comes complete with 100+ recipes, grocery lists for each recipe, printable labels, expert tips and MUCH MORE.
Check it out!
This 5-Day FREE email mini-course will help you get started on planning and organizing for your new baby and the 3rd Trimester.
The course is written by a certified postpartum doula (me!) and designed to help you get organized with confidence.
Lots of FREE downloadable freebies included: planners, worksheets, shopping lists, etc!
Are you looking for more FREE STUFF?
Here is FREE planning help to help you get organized and ready for your baby’s arrival.
In this planning post, I take you by the hand and walk with you step-by-step through your entire pregnancy and help you figure out what to do each trimester.
My Favorite Baby Products
Buckle your seat belts and scroll through this list. To make it easier to browse, I have set up various categories for you…
It’s very easy to mix into bottles or soft food. If, however, your baby is exclusively breastfeeding, try allowing your baby to suck the sweet-tasting powder from your clean finger!
Vitamin D Drops
Skip the brands with preservatives and additives (yuck!) and use this organic vitamin D brand instead!
My 2 Favorite Swaddles (and Why!)
The Ollie Swaddle is my ABSOLUTE favorite swaddle!
Don’t let the more expensive price scare you away, because it’s TOTALLY WORTH IT!!!
Most of the other swaddles have their flaws such as openings where baby’s arms can escape, having to un-swaddle for diaper changes and how quickly baby outgrows the swaddle.
For all other swaddles, you will need to buy a larger size as baby grows. This swaddle is one size fits all! No need to upgrade as baby grows.
It is also so well-made that this swaddle will easily last through several babies!
If you are into a more minimalist lifestyle, this swaddle is for you!
If you’re looking for a less expensive swaddle option, I’d pick this one!
This is my second favorite swaddle in the newborn size! The next size up can seem a bit too roomy for some babies, but the newborn size is awesome!!
I do mention a few other swaddles that I like in my swaddling post, but these two above are my favorites!
**If you’d like to read more about why I like these swaddles so much, here is a review of my two favorite swaddles.
This sound machine has become my all-time favorite for many reasons… small, lightweight, portable, great for travel, holds a charge for a long time, can be used with battery or plug in,
I have had LOTS of clients who have used it and love it too!
Okay, I hope that Mr. Wubbanub is a very rich man for creating these awesome pacifiers!!
They are seriously so cute but also very functional.
They stay in place and the cute little animal actually holds the pacifier in the baby’s mouth. It’s genius really!
Some complain that it’s hard to wash, but most moms just dunk it and air it out to dry on the bottle rack.
Get two so that you always have one that’s clean.
Really love this product!
Disposable Diapers and Baby Care Products
A great company that sells organic and completely safe and natural baby care products is Made Of
You absolutely MUST check out this company!
Did you know that skin care products are unregulated in the United States? But this company is completely transparent about the ingredients that they use in their products.
Check out their website here for more information.
I am seriously excited about this new disposable diaper!
Most disposable diapers contain petrochemicals, phthalates and parabens.
If you are serious about keeping these chemicals out of your home, then take a good look at the diapers you use.
You can subscribe and get 20% off your first order.
Great online shopping convenience with free shipping!
Again in this category of pure and natural organic baby care products, I would include Earth Mama Organic’s Baby Products!
Both these companies are amazing and I would say that it’s pretty much a toss up as far as baby care products.
You can’t go wrong with Made Of or Earth Mama Organics when it comes to baby care products. So nice to have healthy options!
Best Products for Mom and Baby: Baby Carriers
If you want to invest in a great baby carrier that truly g-r-o-w-s with your baby, get the Ergobaby!
It may seem a bit pricey at first, but you won’t regret your purchase.
Mom and Dad can both use this carrier and I’d say it is the “Cadillac” of baby carriers!
I’ve never met any mamas who didn’t like their Ergo. Just sayin…
Another great baby carrier that many moms really love is the Boba Wrap.
Although not as popular as the Moby Wrap, I much prefer the Boba. Why? Because it is lighter, stretchier and easier to use, in my opinion.
Best Products for Mom and Baby: Pregnancy Products
My favorite product line for pregnancy teas and skin care products is Earth Mama Organics .
Since everything is absorbed through our skin, we can never be too careful about the skin care products that we use during pregnancy. These products are gentle, chemical-free and safe.
Check out their line of pregnancy care products here.
Okay, I actually have a few options here…
But, they are all equally great for different reasons!
However, they are all food-based, organic and easier to digest than most synthetic prenatal vitamins.
See which ones are right for you in this post.
My Favorite Postpartum & Breastfeeding Products
If you are looking for soothing, healing postpartum products that are completely natural, make sure that you check out Earth Mama Organics again.
They have a great postpartum care product line as well.
Safe, natural and effective!
Yup. Earth Mama Organics also has a great line of breastfeeding products for new mamas!
These are organic, pure and natural.
I wouldn’t recommend them if I didn’t think that they were pretty special. Check them out here.
Best Products for Mom and Baby: Homeopathic Remedies
I love homeopathy!
Homeopathic remedies are safe and effective ways to naturally stimulate your body to heal itself.
Learn more about homeopathy in this post.
This little kit has great remedies for both mother and child.
Here are some more of my favorite remedies for infants…
