There are countless decisions to make both before and after your baby is born. One of the decisions you may find yourself debating is whether to use synthetic or natural baby products. Even if you are becoming a parent for the second or third time, what worked for one child may not necessarily work for another. In recent years, it seems like more parents have turned to using natural products, not only for themselves but also for their babies. Although adult products may differ from child care products, there are just as many benefits of using natural products over synthetic for your baby. 


One of the first factors that might cross your mind is figuring out which products are the safest to use on your baby’s skin. Of course, it is important to remember that all babies react differently, so you may need to try a variety of products to find which ones work best for you. However, one important benefit of using natural products is the absence of synthetically manufactured and chemical-based ingredients. This is clearly noticeable when comparing the long list of confusing ingredients in a synthetic product with the minimal list of identifiable ingredients in a natural product. Knowing exactly what is in the products you decide to use for your baby can make you feel more confident that they are safe for him/her. 


In connection with the “safety” aspect of natural baby products, the ingredients used in them also offer more health benefits than synthetic ones. After birth a baby is adjusting to their new environment outside of the protective, nourishing womb; this includes a baby’s new sensitive skin. Because infants have such delicate skin, manufactured ingredients and strong perfumes can cause allergic reactions and irritation. On the other hand, organic products with gentler ingredients often contain healing and soothing properties. If your baby appears to have an allergic reaction to a topical product, consider trying a natural product to alleviate the irritation. 


In addition to everyday products such as soaps, lotions, and shampoos, there are a large variety of alternative methods and products that can be safely used for infants. This list contains several natural remedies including products that can be used for diaper rash, eczema, cough, sunscreen, and more.   

At Care for Mom Doula Service, we understand how important your baby’s health is to you, so we strive to do our best to help you make confident decisions about such important matters.
