Shower Season – Baby Edition

Springtime for me usually means – Showers! Babies are being born, people are getting hitched, and there are lots of parties associated with both!


  1. Burt’s Bees Baby Deluxe Gift Set – chock full of all natural products to take care of a baby’s delicate skin
  2. Bamboo and Silicone Bowls Feeding Set and Soft Tip Spoon – this organic bamboo bowl with stay-put silicone is a great option for the wee one once he or she is eating some more solid foods or snacks
  3. Lifefactory 9oz Baby Bottles – These cute bottles are BPA, phthalate, and PVC free, the silicone nipples are non-toxic and latex-free, and they come in four bright and punchy colors!
  4. Words of Love Muslin Wrap – Made from organic cotton muslin and covered with literal words of love. Plus the website includes directions and a video for how to safely swaddle.
  5. Lucky Sparrow Swaddle – Made from soft 100% organic cotton double gauze that is certified through GOTS – the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibers to ensure ethical manufacturing and sourcing. Plus, the pattern is gorgeous!
  6. Coral Floral Swaddle – This swaddle is made from the same company as #5 above, but I loved this pattern too!
  7. BumGenius Cloth Diapers – I have heard that BumGenius diapers are the diapers to have if you are doing cloth diapering. They come in several different colors and can be reused multiple times, reducing the waste and cost of disposable diapers (which can get VERY expensive!).
  8. Reusable and Washable Flannel Baby Wipes – These wipes are made of 100% unbleached cotton flannel, are soft and absorbent, contain no harsh or allergenic chemicals, can be washed multiple times which saves parents money and avoids a lot of waste from disposable wipes.
  9. Planet Wise Wet Diaper Bag – From what I hear, wet bags are an absolute must for cloth diapering and this one is so adorable! Plus it is anti-microbial (thank goodness for that!), PVC and lead free. It comes in 49 different colors and patterns and 3 different sizes so there is sure to be an option that fits your needs.
  10. Maximus the Cat – This super cute cat stuffed animal is handmade from 100% cotton yard in Peru using sustainable, fair trade practices. It is safe and non-toxic, and is US and Canadian safety standard certified. Plus, with the purchase of this stuffed animal, or any of their dolls, Cuddle + Kind donates 10 meals to children in North America and around the world.
  11. Tank and Bloomer Set, Grape Vine – This sweet little outfit is made from organic cotton and is chemical free so everyone can be happy giving this to a cute little newborn.
  12. Tank and Bloomer Set, Santorini Blue – The companion outfit to the one above is similarly made from organic cotton and is also chemical free. I love the little scene of Santorini on the front as well! Would make a cute gift for world-traveling parents.
  13. Fishing Boat Short Sleeve Bodysuit – Such a cute little onesie for potential days at the beach, or just hanging around in the summer. Made from the same company as #11 and #12, this is also made from organic cotton and is certified Fair Trade. Lots of options here!
  14. Organic Crib Sheet – Arrows –  GOTS certified organic cotton muslin fitted crib sheet that helps regulate temperature to keep the baby comfortable year round, is highly absorbent which speeds up drying time (faster laundry sounds like a huge win for new parents!), and the fabric become softer every time it’s washed.
  15. Wooden Cloud Stacker – Made from organic wood, this toy is more durable and safe than plastic and can be used over and over again. Each piece is handpicked and can help spark the imagination of kids.
  16. Woodland Teether – Each teether is hand cut and sanded smooth. They come in natural or waxed with a beeswax and coconut oil mixture.
