Help! Natural baby products

482 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  Aura_Kitten
I'd like to make natural baby care products or use really natural things on her for bathing, skin care, shampooing, etc.

Does anyone have ideas for recipes or what to use? I.e. I know to use cornstarch instead of powder. Any other ideas?

babies don't need anything extra on their skin. a bit of cornstarch on their bum is fine if they tend to be a little rashy.

i stopped shampooing my son's hair a while back... now we just rinse it really well with water at his bath-times. he has wonderfully soft, healthy hair.

and i wouldn't recommend any sort of soap for a baby. i suppose you could add some oatmeal to their bath if they needed it (which will also soften their skin)... otherwise plain warm water and a washcloth is really all you need.
