I’m on the granola side of things. I clean with baking soda and vinegar, take my veggies organic, and am one of those people who use natural deodorant (thankfully I’m not a sweaty person, otherwise it could get … interesting).
I can honestly say I’ve been a pretty relaxed pregnant person. I’ve been careful not to consume deli meats, unpasturized cheeses, and all of the other goodies on the no list. But I haven’t gone overboard like I thought I might. I let myself have a coke if i’m queasy … I just try to listen to what my body needs. Heck, I even had a steak last weekend! Which is something I do just a few times a year and not really on purpose but more as I’m not much of a meat eater, and even less of a red meat eater. I’ve been in tune for the most part… I’m exhausted, I get rest. I’m hungry, I eat. Same goes for what to put on and in my body. Thanks to my mom who is light years ahead of everyone else in the health and organic world… I have developed a love for the as natural-as-i-can get away with in products, food, and lifestyle. So naturally, when picking out things for the babe, I’ve been reading labels and researching away. Here are a few items I’m going to give a whirl for baby tuck from aden + anais, Charleston Naturally (who offers 20% off to any of my readers with code FTAT) and Honest Company. Would love the input from all the momma’s out there too!
2. baby oil. but not the kind with mineral oil (yuck).
3. baby comforter. read about this one. love.
4. Honest diapers. we’re not doing cloth over here, and these are the next best thing upon researching. Plus they are pretty darn cute.
more to come as my knowledge increases! and if you’re a momma who likes this sort of thing, I’d love to hear from you.
