i am thinking back… back, back,
back before i had changed a diaper.. back to the last month of pregnancy.
i felt pretty prepared, (although now i know no one can ever be truly prepared for being a parent) but i was still unready as far as products. what would we need for a baby? what should we use on a baby's bod? and why isn't it in my house already?! i don't know if any of you are at this point, but after a bit of hunting around, i got hooked up with some products that i think are tops.

i emailed the lovely shop owner about which bar she recommends for babies, and she was super sweet! she told me about this castile option and we love it. very creamy, gentle, unscented, and doubles as shampoo. after 4 months, we're still on our first bar, so it's absolutely economical.
you should see all the shampoo/body bar options they have! i could go crazy there. i also bought bug spray from this awesome company over the summer. can't wait to buy from them again.

for $12 you get 50 of these drops. 50! this box is going to last us forever. it's so nice. and we haven't had a single diaper-area issue to report, so we are pretty happy about this purchase. here's what we do: put one drop in a cup of very hot water and let dissolve, then pour the solution over a stack of paper towels cut into thirds. boom! baby wipes. and you don't have to run to target when you're out! you can also use the solution on cloth wipes or in a spray bottle, but we like the throw-away option for now.
really, that's it for the day-to-day things. the only other products we've used so far are: California Baby super sensitive everyday, cradle clear lotion, and unrefined coconut oil. oh, and we use Charlie's Soap liquid laundry detergent. can't forget about that!
i've been super happy with everything, so just had to share with you guys.
