I found out about your site from www.jollymom.com. The inforlation provided was educational and I can not wait to go intothe store and learn more about the products. Thanks

Cindy says …

I shop weekly at whole foods and one of the greatest things about whole foods is the staff is so educated on the items and are willing to let you try the items or order in special items if needed!

Joy says …

Wow! I learned so much about the importance of natural products. I never really thought it was necessary, but my two toddlers will appreciate it from now on! Thanks for educating!

Pam says …

I love Whole Food & the fact that you're carrying this line of baby products is awesome! I'm visiting from http://grocerymama.typepad.com/

jessica says …

Thank you Whole Foods for carrying this line, I look forward to shopping there to discover more important natural items for my baby.

with a kiddo who has very sensitive skin and seems to be allergic to scents, this is a life saver! thanks.

Elizabeth Keller says …

I never knew how many things there were to irritate my baby's skin! There are so many lines that do claim to be "natural" and it's nice to know that Whole Foods has done all the hard work and picked the good lines to choose from. www.mommymandy.com/

Lacy says …

Your stores have been a tremendous resource for mothers like myself who find natural products a must for raising kids. Thanks for extending into social media!

Michaela says …

Thank you for the information about this product line!!

Jennifer says …

Thanks for the info I have a 7m old.

Steven-Sanders says …

So many companies make claims or trick readers into thinking their products are good for you, when they simply are not. I'm glad there are companies that spend time researching the best products... the ones that aren't harmful... and offering them in one central location. It's so much easier, than having to remember it all yourself.

Tracy says …

This info is great, but I admit, I still feel tremendously overwhelmed in trying to make a choice - especially about BABY stuff! If you go to WF and see a big ol' pregnant woman standing there staring forlornly at the shelves? That's me. ;-)

Carol says …

I agree. It IS a great time to be a parent if you want to raise your baby with natural products. Whole Foods has done a great job intergrating these products into their stores now.

Jennifer says …

I agree that natural is a term too often used in products and needs to be carefully checked out. Im glad whole foods takes away the guess work for me! I am ganna get my baby stuff there, there is one by my work!

shannon says …

I never thought about the products that I put on my baby could possibly go in my baby. I love the grocery store whole foods. I will definitely have to try some of the stuff out.

Carol says …

Thanks for the podcast. I agree, this IS the best time to be a parent if you want to surround your child with good and natural products.

Amanda says …

Thanks Whole Foods. This podcast was very informative. I trust the brand and reccomendations so will try some of these products.

Lalitha says …

Wow..I was so ignorant of all the details about baby products..Now I would be looking at the shelves differently..

Sarah Thompson says …

This is an awesome giveaway. What a neat job Jeremiah has! Keep up the good work!

Angelica09 says …

I really am so happy there are more natural organic products out there. Of course some of us weren't raise with these products but it is never too late to start. Of course I would want the best for her. Thanks for sharing the podcast. This was informative and can't wait to start practicing more with my little girl

Susan says …

Glad I can turn to your store for great products and foods for my child!

Diana G says …

This is wonderful… I’ve always been very cautious of what my little one eats/wears/plays with…don’t get me wrong…I’m not a clean freak mom but I want to protect my baby as much as I possibly can without being overprotective…this is great information

Julie A. says …

I would love this for my nephew! He loves all the organic stuff and he's a "green" baby. :D

Melissa says …

Thank you for this great information. My daughter has eczema and so this is really relevant to us. I scrutinize labels on all bath products and look for the most natural, gentle ingredients I can use for her. I love Whole Foods!

Lester says …

I love that your place is the one stop source for my babycare needs

Dawn says …

I never thought to look for baby products at whole foods! I try to use organic, natural products for my baby, and there are not alot of readily available choices out there. Thanks!

Christine says …

Thanks!

Ashley says …

I love Whole Foods, wish there was one closer to Palm Harbor, FL. I have a new baby with super sensitive skin so Whole Foods baby care products are a life saver. The podcast was great and very helpful. Thanks for keeping us educated! :o)

amanda says …

Last time I was at Whole Foods, I grabbed a copy of "Organic Beauty" magazine & fell in love with it. One of the best "articles" was a spread about the distinction of buzz words used in "natural" products. I love using natural products and find myself becoming obsessed with understanding everything about every product for my new baby's care!

Stacy says …

So great to know I can get all my baby products in one place.

Liza767 says …

oh wow that was so interesting i love natural products and you have been improving them for 15 yrs great job

Olive says …

Thanks for sharing! We are big believers in considering very thoughtfully what we put in and on our children.

Cecelia says …

Great series...thanks for your focus on babies and kids. :)

Susan says …

This was really an eye opener about many products out there. I'm glad to know that there is something that is purely safe for my kids.

Carol says …

Whole Foods now becomes THE place to get everything a growing family needs. Kudos to them for thinking green and natural. It is a great time to be a parent, with so many fine green options available.

Karen says …

This was really informative. Most people don't realize how sensitive a baby's skin really is.

Elizabeth says …

As a parent of a kid with excema, I love how gentle natural products are. Plus, they're better for the planet!

Dan says …

I wish there were more standards concerning "natural" skin products for babies, but since there aren't, I'm glad Whole Foods takes a look at what actual ingredients are in these products, e.g. artificial colors, so at least we know we're buying something safer.

Tina Burnett says …

Such a fantastic idea!

Kianna says …

I'm currently 22 weeks pregnant with my first child. Thanks for sharing the importance of using natural products on babies. I would love to win the Green Baby Diaper Bag giveaway for my son. kikisp2008@yahoo.com

charlene says …

This was great to listen to. I am preg with my 5th child and we are slowly trying to switch to more green. Hearing all the good that comes from going green encourages me in my quest to get there my self even if it is slow going due to money. thanks for the site.

Michelle says …

I think using the highest quality body products is one of the best things you can do for your child. I always knew babies had sensitive skin, but never thought so much as their skin being responsible for things like temperature regulation and hydration. I plan to look into these natural products!

the holly says …

always encouraging to hear folks who are asking similar questions - and helpful to know that whole foods is trying to also ask them.

Sara says …

I am just becoming aware of the effects of skin products on my daughters sensitive skin! Thanks for the informative podcast and I will surely check out your skin care products when I am in the store next!

Gina Stratos says …

I really appreciate the premium body care standards. gkstratos@yahoo.com

Karen says …

I wish I knew what I know now 15 years ago. But it is never too late! I am surrounded by soon-to-be moms and will pass on this helpful info.!

Cindy Phiffer says …

Thank you for such useful information.

Charity S. says …

This product line would help my family. I already love Whole Foods.

Julie G says …

We love Whole Foods and are always on the lookout for new natural baby products. Thanks!

Sarah says …

I am 26 weeks pregnant. And totally agree I never really thought about Natural products and being more healthy until I was responsible for another human being. Sounds like an Awesome product.
