It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and let’s be honest - it’s beginning to feel like it, too! We’re not just talking about the wonderful holiday spirit, traditions and magic, but also all the dry skin and chapped lips that come along with it. As adults, we are loading up on the lotion, chapstick and more to protect ourselves. As we all know, babies are unable to properly communicate with us when their lips are feeling chapped or when their skin is feeling dry, so it’s important for us as parents to stay on top of it and make sure they are well moisturized this winter season. Finding natural, safe products to use on our babies can be a daunting task. Researching all the ingredients and what they mean can feel like a job in itself on top of everything else we already have to do as moms. If you’re not sure where to even begin looking for great, all natural products to get for your little one, worry not! You’ve stumbled upon the right place. We break it all down for you, giving your products that all work together, making it a super easy one-stop-shop for you! Keep on reading - and you might want to use some of these, too!
