Rub-a-dub-dub, No Suds in the Tub!
There are thousands of baby bath time soaps, cleansers and other sudsy baby body products on the market and they’re all trying to convince parents that super duper clean is not only a good thing but a totally necessary thing. Yup folks, your baby is a terribly dirty mess! Or is he? Babies do have sweat glands but unless there’s a problem baby sweat shouldn’t smell bad. And babies aren’t spending their time fixing oily cars or other grimy activities. In fact, many baby experts note that parents are over-cleaning their little ones, which can be downright dangerous. Yes, dangerous. Antibacterial soaps, chemical fragrances and even sudsy bubbles can pose a health risk for your baby and these traditional baby care products aren’t eco-friendly.
Instead, aim for warm water washes or use a biodegradable, eco-friendly cleanser for your tot. To learn more read our in-depth guide Rub-a-dub-dub, No Suds in the Tub, which covers everything you need to know about how to keep your baby clean and green without conventional soapy products.
