Babies & Up Skincare line by Alaffia/Everyday Shea: It’s all-natural and gentle on baby skin, while the scents and quality are heavenly! I urge anyone to try it and fall in love with it themselves.

Bambo Nature’s Diapers: If a mom does not want to go the cloth diaper route, they are a great alternative! The diapers are free from perfumes, chlorine, and have a super-high absorbency (which is tough to find in these types of diapers!) and the “fluff” is made from sustainably sourced timber.
Valerie Trumbower, Nurturing Doula, Montgomeryville, PA
Skip*Hop Grab & Go Wet/Dry Bag: These reusable bags eliminate the need for using multiple plastic bags for soiled clothes, wet swimsuits, etc.
