Not sure what’s safe for baby and toddler? Here is my list for all of my favorite nontoxic baby registry essential items.
Why a nontoxic baby registry?
When it comes to our kids, we want what is best.
But not always do we know what is best.
And sometimes (even worse), we are mislead by sneaky marketing looking to make an extra buck for a large monopoly.
So from one caring mom to another, here is a list of my favorite truly nontoxic baby items.
1. Pura Stainless Baby Bottle
Materials 100% Food Grade Service Stainless Steel & Medical Grade Silicone
Pura Stainless is the only MadeSafe Certified bottle out on the market today. The company makes a variety of infant, toddler, and adult bottles that convert by changing lid attachments. This means as your child grows, so does their bottle! Bottles are made with zero plastic, food industry grade stainless steel bottles and all nipples, caps, and travel sleeves are made out of medical grade silicone. For infants and toddlers, they have a variety of nipples ranging from slow flow to “sippy spouts”. This is one of my favorite companies whose products I use for the entire family.
2. Green Sprouts Glass Sippy Cup
Materials Glass & Silicone
My Pick Green Sprouts Glass Sippy Cup
Green Sprouts’ Glass Sippy cup is one of my favorite bottles for my baby/toddler because not only do liquids only come into contact with glass or silicone, but it comes with two attachments — a sippy spout and a straw. The straw attachment makes it super easy for my toddler to get a drink in her own time and minimizes a lot of spillage!! Also, the plastic exterior keeps the glass interior from breaking. My bottle has personally withstood quite a few drops from the dinner table and it has yet to crack!
3. Green Sprouts Learning Utensils, Bowl & Cup
Materials Stainless Steel & Silicone
My Pick Green Sprouts Learning Utensils
Green Sprouts’ learning utensils and silicone bowl are favorites of mine because not only do they come in matching colors, but are made entirely without the use of petroleum and consist of silicone and stainless steel. Another great option is their toddler learning cup, which I use at dinner time rather than during the day to minimize spillage!
4. Burts Bees GOTS Certified Baby Clothing
Materials GOTS Certified Organic Cotton
GOTS certified clothing is made without any of the harsh chemicals that can irritate our little one’s skin. I enjoy Burts Bees’ packs of onesies as well their zipper footed pajamas that give easy access to nighttime diaper changes. They have many adorable patterns that come in boys’, girls’, and gender-neutral colors.
5. SnuggleMe Organic Swaddle
Materials 100% Certified Organic Cotton
My Pick SnuggleMe Organic Swaddle
Snuggle Me Organic is an awesome little company that makes organic cotton sleep products for our little ones. I love their swaddles because they are stretchy, soft, and safe! This swaddle for me is a MUST because it makes swaddling a breeze and actually kept my daughter asleep for more than ten minutes at a time (SHE REALLY LOVED BEING SWADDLED!!!!).
6. Britax Flame Retardent Free Car Seat
Materials Polyester & Nylon; Flame-Retardant-Free
Flame retardants have recently come into the public eye with the creation of California’s Prop 65 Label (products containing flame retardants must be labeled with the health warnings of causing cancer and infertility). That is why there has been a new push to especially eliminate flame retardants from children’s products. Luckily for us health conscious mamas, there are a few companies out there making carseats, strollers and portable cribs WITHOUT these toxic chemicals. I love this flame-retardant-free carseat from Britax because not only is the cover washing machine safe, but it is also convertible and grows with your child from a rear-facing infant seat to a forward-facing toddler seat.
7. Naturpedic Organic Crib/Toddler Mattress
Materials 100% Organic Cotton & UL/GreenGuard Certified
The Naturpedic crib mattresses are a great go to option for a safe place for baby to sleep. Not only do they have two-sided mattresses that grow with your child into toddlerhood, but their mattresses are also GOTS/GOLS certified and come with waterproof coatings that make those nighttime accidents easy to clean up.
8. Natursutten Natural Rubber Pacifier/Teether
Materials 100% Natural Rubber
Natursutten, which means “Natural Pacifier” in Danish, is an awesome family-run company that makes natural rubber teethers and pacifiers. Their products are all nontoxic and contain “no BPA, nitrosamines, PVC, phthalates, chemical softeners, or artificial coloring”. They have different sized pacifiers based on age ranges, different shaped pacifiers to help accommodate baby’s personal preference, and cute little hand held teethers for when baby grows up a little more!
9. Honest Company Soaps, Creams, Wipes, etc.
Materials Made without phthalates, parabens, dyes, synthetic fragrances, formaldehyde donors, or SLES.
As of recently, I have fallen in love with the Honest Company because of their diaper subscription service. Not having to go to the store to buy diapers is one blessing and another is that all of the Honest Company’s products are made without phthalates, parabens, dyes, synthetic fragrances, formaldehyde donors, or SLES.
10. Fawn & Forest Greenguard Certified Rocking Chair
Materials Greenguard Gold Certified Rocking Chair
The Sleepytime upholstered nursery rocking chair is not only comfortable for you and your baby, but it is made with environmentally friendly materials. It is GREENGUARD Gold Certified, meaning it has been screened for 360 volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and over 10,000 chemicals. The upholstery chemical flame retardants and meets California’s TB 117-2013 flammability requirements.
