My daughter’s first tooth poked through when she was three months old! We were glad that we had plenty of non-toxic teethers on hand to help soothe her aching gums. Here are 7 eco-friendly, non-toxic teething toys your little ones will want to sink their budding teeth into. Above, my daughter is poised to chew on a Maple Teether by Camden Rose.
6. High Chair
Although baby may not sit up to eat a solid meal until 5-6 months, having a high chair ready to seat and properly position him for the grand occasion is a definite must. There are so many varieties of high chairs available, from the kind that grow with your child, to convertible high chairs and sleek recycled leather options to portable, flatpak hideaway high chairs.
7. Non-toxic Baby Bath Products
You’ve got the infant tub, now you need the non-toxic baby shampoo/body wash to use on your slippery little babe. Use these products very sparingly — even opting to use plain, lukewarm water during bath time on those occasions when baby isn’t particularly dirty. If you really want to go the au natural route, see our post on how to make breast milk soap. And visit the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep website, which features a special section dedicated to informing consumers of the toxicity levels in baby products.
