Best Eco-Friendly Items for Baby

Every parent is in search of the safest products for their baby, and green products designed to save the planet are a perfect pick for little ones while protecting Mother Earth. "When a child is born, their immune systems are exceptionally fragile, so it's pivotal to ease the toxic overload they are exposed to during their developing years," advises Gay Browne, environmental health advisor and author of Living With a Green Heart. "If I can suggest the most important time to jump into your own personal environmental health, it would have to be the moment you decide to become a parent." In celebration of Earth Day on April 22, we've rounded up the best eco-friendly finds to help ease mom and dad's concerns and even reduce baby's carbon footprint.

Earth's Best Tender Care Diapers Club Pack

It's impossible to have a newborn and live without diapers. Eco-friendly brands like Earth's Best make choosing a comfortable, absorbent disposable diaper brand a bit easier. Available in seven sizes, the organic chlorine-free, latex-free, dye-free and fragrance-free diapers are a recommended choice. "According to Small Foot Print Family, your baby will use between 6,500–10,000 diapers before potty training around 30 months old," says Gay Browne. "It can be difficult to use cloth diapers, so some great alternative brands include Earth's Best, Dyper, and Seventh Generation." ($33; target.com)
