KUDOS to Whole Foods for going beyond looking at the term "natural." Arsnic is "natural" but I don't want to be rubbing it into my baby's skin. Keep up the great work, but don't hesitate to raise the bar a lot more...we can do with less selection if we're dealing with the highest quality.

So glad that Whole Foods is addressing the problem with everyone tossing around "natural", and giving us brands we can trust! My daughter has allergies and eczema and it is so hard to find appropriate products for her to use.

I have a child with sensitive skin also. I went to Whole Foods and got some calendula lotion when he was 5 months old. He is 18 months now and we are still using it. Now he only has eczema on his hands and feet, none on his trunk :) I'm visiting from JollyMom.com but I blog at MomMostTraveled.com

This is good information and products. As I am allergic to so many things, I'll have to be careful what I use on my baby, so these products will be very helpful! Thanks!

This is all new to me and I am quickly adjusting. I was introduced to more "natural" products by several family member and friends. I think this new natural direction we are taking has already made us feel better in many ways. I was never much of a label reader myself but now I read EVERYTHING. I'm glad I was introduced to Whole Foods and now Whole Baby. Thank YOU!

My entire awareness has been raised exponentailly since having my first child to having my fourth child. I am so much more in tune with natural and organic products, and am SOOOOOOO happy that Whole Foods is on board too. Now I can shop at Whole Foods for everything!

I always forget that your skin is an organ. It really needs to be taken care of as well as you would your heart or your brain. It bothers me that people are throwing around the natural word. Not everything labeled natural is safe. I wish there was a way to keep that term for actually safe and natural products. Thank you for all your work on making sure everything is safe/natural in your stores. I just wish there were a whole foods closer than the hour and a half it would take to get there.

Jane wants to interject here that she also makes baby products, not mentioned for some reason :(, and that they are sold in Whole Foods. One is a rubber duck embedded in a gently baby soap and one is a full size baby bar. Both soaps have only olive oil and a touch of both shea butter and beeswax...nothing more (no fragrances, artificial colorings, etc.)! I see a lot of people mentioning eczema and skin troubles (heartaches when they are babies!), and I don't use anything else on my babies. The popular "tear free" formulas are full of chemicals and fragrances. The problem is that when there are SO many ingredients and your baby/child has a reaction, it's nearly impossible to tell what the irritant was. With fewer ingredients, it's much easier to identify and avoid it. Just my two cents!

I appreciate the insights shared. It is so over whelming trying to find the most effective and safest products, especially for our little ones. I'm glad to know that I have a "trusted source" to go to. Thanks so much!

AS a mom with a baby with sensitive skin, I am so thankful for products out there like these. The Whole Baby line is great. Thank you for the great products and spreading the word.

It's great to see a truly "natural" product that pays particular attention to a baby's special needs.

I tell mamas and papas all the time about using less on their baby - but if they are going to use anything it should be as natural as possible. There are so many great products - and those with the least ingredients are usually the best! Thanks for helping parents think about what they are using.

Thank you so much for addressing that "natural", doesn't always mean healthy in today's terms. That is why I stick to one brand that I trust- that I could actually eat their skincare products. That is what I want and expect from anything that touches my family's skin - I want to recognize each ingredient as being healthy. Imformative - thanks.

I love natural, organic products. I never realized you carried baby products like this. This is great, as I won't have to go to a different store to buy them from now on. Thanks!
