When I was a young mother I trusted EVERYTHING my doctor told me...even when they told me to smear my precious newborn baby with toxic chemicals. No wonder her skin was always so sensitive.
Our skin is the largest organ our body has!
While I was at Meijer (a local grocery store) the other day I was on a mission. Not a mission of grocery shopping in-between 130000000 people but on a mission to find things I use to buy and use to turn those products around and to TRULY read the labels. What I found was shocking.
Most hospitals here in MI anyways all have the Johnson and Johnson "sensitive" newborn lotion that is #1 choice of hospitals readily available for all new parents to smother their newborns with :(
I too was one of those vulnerable parents that fell into the trap.
We all want what is best for our children especially our precious newborns....So we buy the best of the best. Of course your going to buy the first thing the hopsital gives you to use once you leave and go home because its #1 choice of hospitals and used by most people. what most people including myself failed to realize is what toxins I was putting all over my baby.
I still cannot believe I used this stuff on my newborn and baby!
Let me break it down for you of what some of these chemicals...I mean ingredients really are:
Pretty scary stuff huh? Im not trying to scare you but I got your attention didn't I? Fear sure as hell works to grab peoples attention.
So now your probably thinking, "well what the hell? I have like 10 bottles of that in my nursery from all the baby showers I had!" Its ok, your not the first person to have a stock pile of this stuff laying around.
Here is a all natural healthy and non-toxic alternative...are you ready?
yes Coconut oil will work wonders on your brand new (and grown up) baby's skin.
Of course there are some rare occasions where your child might be allergic to coconuts but
at least you will know what they are allergic to instead of trying to decipher through a "honey-dew" long list of possible culprits.
KNOWLEDGE IS POWER...pass it on :)
