Nothing is more sensitive than a baby’s skin, and sometimes over-the-counter toiletry products are irritating or just don’t mesh well with your little one.
Organic bath products could be the way to go. There are slews of great hypoallergenic as well as organic nappy creams, bath items, balms, and oils that will soothe baby skin in a natural way.
Here are a few fantastic organic bath products available to Canadian mummies.
