Dealing with health issues and learning that my body doesn’t methylate toxins well, I’ve learned that it’s important for me to reduce the toxic load in my home. Over the last few years, I’ve changed my diet to gluten free and dairy free, and I try to purchase organic and non-GMO when affordable. Additionally, I’ve swapped out nearly every health and beauty product in my cabinet for more natural or organic products, as well as purchasing products with fewer harmful chemicals. I was really excited when I received notification from Seventh Generation that I had been selected to host a Healthy Baby Home Party. My mission was to share healthier products and ideas for home and baby, as well as their #comeclean initiative.
I have been using the full size products since I’ve received them, and I’m happy to say that I’ve enjoyed everything. Not only are these products exactly what I need in my home for myself, they’re different from many companies in that they list their ingredients on their labels. I never have to wonder or scour the Internet to dig up the ingredients lists, unlike some of the other brands I was using.
Did you know that it’s not required that companies list what’s in their cleaning products? There are so many harmful chemicals that can cause health and environmental problems. Seventh Generation wants US to help them change that requirement, because we have the right to know. If you want to learn more about #comeclean, visit 7gen.us/comeclean
Items in my Healthy Baby Home Party Kit
Diapers & Wipes: The diapers seemed to run slightly larger than mainstream diapers, though held up as well. The Wipes were as good as, if not better than, the mainstream wipes I’d been using. Honestly, I didn’t have the time previously to research much about diapers and wipes when the new baby arrived, but I’m disappointed in myself that I hadn’t considered alternatives to these items.
Bobble water bottle: Comes with a cool carbon filter than can be removed to allow you to use the water bottle as a water infuser. The design of the carbon filter allows you to select a month that the filter needs to be replaced.
Dish detergent: When washing sippy cups, bottles, or breast pump parts, I prefer to wash them without all the chemicals and fragrances in mainstream products, because, on the off chance I don’t happen to rinse it all away, I don’t want to be ingesting a load of toxins. I’ve been really pleased with the effectiveness of the dish detergent.
The samples and coupons I was able to share with my group during this party were a lot of fun. My guests had samples of laundry detergent, dish soap, baby cough syrup, Plum Organics tot food, and more.
