I checked out "the complete organic pregnancy" book from the library and have been reading it again (I read bits of it a year ago) and I'm starting to go with more natural products. I just feel better if I am reducing the amount of chemicals I'm exposing my baby to.

What do you use that is natural or organic? I have been using a more natural shampoo and soap for awhile, I don't recall the brands. Then I went yesterday to buy Burt's Bees chapstick, some Burt's Bees tinted moisturizer (to use as concealer), and some Kiss My Face deodorant. I don't think the deodorant is going to work out though.

You can always stop using deodorant and use something like baby powder instead. That's all that my mom has used for years and she never stinks.

Oh yeah, I use Tom's of Maine deoderant and like it. At first I had some BO issues (TMI, I know) but now that I've been using it for a while it works just fine. I just clean and exfoliate my armpits every day and no stinks at all.

We are going to buy the Tom's toothpaste next time. Do you like it? I have heard mixed reviews on it.

We use Tom's toothpaste. I like it! We have the spearmint anitcavity kind and the then cinnamon gel stuff. I forget what it is called. I use one in morning and the other at night I just ordered us some Tom's deodorant too, can't wait to use it! I was using Alba organic deodorant (i think is the name) it works alright, I'm hoping Tom's will be better.

Other products I like/use are Burt's Bees mainly lotion, body wash and massage oil, can't wait to use it on our baby I love the smell. Tom's body wash. Giovanni hair products, thinking of trying something new next time, I like it but it leaves my hair knotty I like my hair being soft and silky.
