As a Mom of 2 young girls I am definitely concerned with how many chemicals are in the products we use daily and I am constantly on the look out for items that are not only safe for my babies but also for the planet.
That’s why I was really excited to receive my package from Giraffe Baby; an amazing eco-friendly line based here in Canada. These products are really unique in that they are made from cornstarch and are completely biodegradable.
The wipes/Hand and Mouth wipes I received are really great; they are nice and thick and hold their moisture really well. I think they are unscented but I actually found they had a pleasant smell and didn’t irritate my baby’s skin at all. Actually my older daughter liked them so much she started using them to clean up with after snacks and meals. They contain no harsh chemicals, which is so important when you have an item that comes into such close contact with your child. Another interesting feature is that they are biodegradable within 30 days, how cool is that?
The tableware, Frog Toddler Dining Set included is very cute and I have used them quite frequently. I think it would make a really cute gift for a 1 year old as the set looks like a little frog and includes a cup, plate and bowl along with a spoon and fork. A perfect introductory set for little hands learning to self-feed. The handles on the side of the cup are great and will really help my daughter as she transitions into this phase.
Lastly was a great baby feeding bottle for newborns and younger babies. I loved that the size was nice and small, perfect for smaller feeds and the shape really mimicked the natural shape of the breast so it would be great for moving baby between breast and bottle with less confusion. My daughter is a little older and just getting used to feeding herself so I decided to put some water in it and found she was getting pretty good at holding onto it.
All in all I think these products are really nice, I love supporting local and any option on the market that is safe for my baby and reduces our impact on the environment is a win in my books. I’m very happy to have been introduced to such an innovative brand and I definitely approve!
