New mothers and fathers need a host of products for their bundle of joy. Choose a gift basket full of practical and fun organic products that pamper a new baby. These useful items provide parents with the reassurance that they are using products that are safe for the environment and the baby.
Choose a gift basket that includes organic soaps and oils that soothe baby's delicate skin and keep the diaper area clean and moisturized. Use the soaps with 100 percent organic cotton washcloths made from fibers free of pesticides and fertilizers. The cloths are soft on sensitive skin. Swaddle your baby with a receiving blanket made of organic cotton flannel. The blanket also provides privacy while breastfeeding. Babies enjoy the gentle noise of a rattle made from recyclable, sustainable wood. The rattle is free of paints or chemicals, and its germ-repellent natural surface prevents the transfer of harmful bacteria. Baby quickly makes friends with the plush Miyim bunny made from organic cotton and recycled fiber filling. Read your baby to sleep with an eco-friendly version of the classic "Peter Rabbit" book printed with vegetable inks on recycled paper. A new mother enjoys a lasting memory of the gift basket when she plants the included recycled-paper tag, and watches as it sprouts into a blooming plant.
It is hard to go wrong when choosing a baby basket comprised of organic materials. A new mother or father appreciates the practical items that see everyday use in a nursery, and they enjoy using natural products that are kind to a baby's skin. Blankets, books and plush toys provide keepsakes that stay with the child for years to come.
