I like that Whole Foods has screened their products to make sure that they are really "natural" so I don't have to guess.

Whoa! Have I ever been enlightened! As you said, it is critical to use organic products on babies skin, leaving out the artifial stuff, like colors. I also like the fact this business is based on knowledge and passion. Great podcast and thank you.

As far as I'm concerned, it's all about providing the absolute best for your newborn. The common argument is that, "we didn't have all natural products growing up and we turned out ok." But the truth is, there probably weren't as many chemicals and pesticides being used as there are now. Bottom line, if it's all natural you can rest assured that it's the best thing for your baby. I'm so glad that more companies like Whole Foods are starting to carry multiple options in the way of natural care. Thanks Whole Foods for making it more convenient then ever to have a green baby!

I hope more stores catch on to this green 'trend' soon.

We don't have a Whole Foods in OK which is disappointing. I hope to use more natural products on my baby if I can find them.

Thanks again for making sure that great products, made by conscientious parents are available nationwide. I have long relied on California Baby and Weleda for safe products, and as you introduce new lines, I always carefully read ingredients, open caps and sniff, try the testers, etc. I would love if you would use your national-chain clout with Earth's Best and get them to resume manufacturing Tushies diapers, keep them gel-free, and in the US. Or better yet, maybe Brand 365 can buy that factory, and become the exclusive supplier of gel-free diapers. That would be FABULOUS!

I found out about this podcast on www.jollymom.com. Thank you for this great information! Since the birth of my first baby, ten years ago, I have been looking to Whole Foods, specifically the California Baby and Weleda products, to ensure that I only use the safest products for my baby. I am very happy to see that Whole Foods is providing an incentive to its vendors to not only list ingredients but disclose what they are, as well as to use truly safe and natural ingredients. I really hope I win the sling full of goodies, because the prizes are things I would actually buy and use with my children. Thank you!

We are big fans of Whole Foods and all their wonderful products! Our favorite line for baby's, and our own skin, is Burt's Bee's. It is so wonderful to have a store like Whole Foods to carry "real" natural skin care products. We just wish there was one closer to us!

Me and hubby are expecting baby #1 this summer and I plan to make Whole Foods our destination for natural baby products because I trust that they only stock their shelves with real organic items

I shop at Whole Foods and am expecting our 3rd child - after a 9 year break! I havne't even thought about all natural baby products - though I have thought about the cleaners I use at home. I can't wait to get up to my local store and check out the whole line!

Great information! It is so important to me that my family avoid using petroleum-based products on their skin. Not to mention chemical "fragrance" and other unnecessary and potentially dangerous additives. I, too, scrutinize the labels of everything I buy. Thanks for making my shopping for us and our baby safer and easier!

I feel confident that shopping at WFM is the best choice for me and my baby. When looking at the different options and all of the "no-no's" in all products, let alone the ones for our most important families, it is nice to know that you can trust someone else to do all the homework. Thank you.

As a mom of a baby who has sensitive skin I am so glad that whole food is doing all they can to promote the real "natural" skin products this gives me a lot of reassurance that I can rely on whole food for my purchases, thanks the podcast was very informative.

My little guy has very sensitive skin. I am always looking for products that will help NOT irritate.

I think it is great that Whole Foods takes the time to evaluate products to verify that they are indeed natural rather than just taking the mfg. word for it. It shows me that they care about their products and stand behind what they sell. I have a grandbaby coming in May, and while I don't have a Whole Foods near me-I do travel several times a month to where there is a store-and I will be sure to stock up on natural baby goods while there!

It's so nice to hear this coming from a father...usually, I see mothers concerned about making sure their baby gets all natural products. I love browsing the baby "skin care" section. Hopefully, one day, daddy will enjoy it just as much!

We should always take caution with what we put on our own skin let alone our young child's. Recently I discovered the products offered by WF and I am very impressed. Thank you.
