Admittedly, I never really put too much thought into the products I was using on my newborn baby girl a few years back. I guess you can say that I naively assumed that if a product was on the shelf, that it was safe. In a perfect world, that’s the way it would be.
These past three years have been enlightening. I’ve learned the scary truth when in comes to some of the chemically-laden products that are marketed to parents of newborns and we’ve taken measures to ensure that we don’t fall into the same trap again.
Launched in January, The Honest Company offers an eco-friendly line of family essentials (diapers and wipes, bath and body care, and household cleaners) through a monthly subscription service at Honest.com. The company was founded by actress Jessica Alba, who says on motherhood, “It’s the most satisfying job in the world. But, it can also be overwhelming and confusing. I created The Honest Company to help moms and to give all children a better, safer start.”
We received a sampling of items including detergent, bath and body products, wipes and a sample pack of diapers which are the next best thing to cloth diapers.
The diapers are made without synthetic materials and are available in adorable patterns. The bath and body products are completely organic and guaranteed safe. I’ve been washing the baby’s clothing with the gentle laundry detergent which is safe not only for baby but for the entire family.
Right now, you can get started by signing up for a free trial. If you like the service and products, you can subscribe and have access to the entire product line.
