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/

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!

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.

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. ;-)

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.

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!

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!

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.

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

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

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

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!

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!
