As my career is focused around good skincare, I want the absolute best for my lil peanut girl. I have done quite a bit of research, as to different brands, ingredients, consumer reviews, etc. I have carefully chosen my Must Have's for her.
Please feel free to leave a comment on what your baby must have's are!!!

Mustela Dermo-Cleansing Cleanser was chosen because it is soap free & easily removed from newborn's skin specifically during those early sponge bath moments, as we must avoid getting the delicate umbilical cord wet for proper healing. I also really like that this cleanser is soothing with coconut oil which also preserves the hydrolopidic film, aka skin's natural moisture barrier. After we use this cleanser up, I plan to use Honest's Shampoo & Body Wash. This is an organic cleanser that can & will be used for the whole family containing jojoba & quinoa, plus amino acids.

I did purchase this Mustela Foam Shampoo for Newborns specifically because it offers a mild exfoliation that helps soften & rinse away cradle cap flakes. I don't mind cradle cap on other babies, I just again have a weird little quirk where I'd rather eliminate it as much as possible on my kids. : ) It is tear free, as well.

I actually partake in Honest's bundle programs. I do not work a full time job outside of the home and do not have a car at this moment, so being that our Honest bundles ship to our home, the products are better for us, our future baby, better for the earth, & so on, it was a no-brainer. We are signed up for 2 of their bundles. The Diapers & Wipes bundle which is postponed til I need it & the Essentials Bundle. The Essentials Bundle is about $35/ month. You can chose between every 4, 6, or 8 weeks. I tend to need my bundle shipped every 4 or 6 weeks. You do not get charged til your next bundle ships. I love that everything within the bundle plan is adjustable by time frame, items needed, and can be put on hold whenever necessary. You can also add more than the 5 products that you choose from for $35.
So everything in our home is turning into Honest products. You can purchase these items individually, if you like.

California Baby Calendula Cream, I did purchase in the family size. I figured, why not?! I plan to use it on Penelope's face & body. It can be used for the diaper area. Calendula is soothing & this cream offers deep hydration, absorbs well, and works very well for that dreaded cradle cap! : ) Might I add, it smells heavenly with added natural aromatherapy blend that includes French Lavender.
