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!

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!

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!

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!

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.

So glad to see that Whole Foods has done all the homework for us on baby products. I'm never 100% confident in my picks.

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.

I have a pug dog that LOVES the small rubber ducks from Whole Foods. A friend used to buy them for me. Now I no longer work with her and my pug is on his last one....we have gone through many. He does NOT like the texture of the myriad of ones I have bought elsewhere. I recently found one in a Christmas box after a year or more and he is glued to it. Unfortunately the head is about to fall off. Has anyone seen one recently????

I use almond oil to massage my baby and for hair I use coconut oil. Also, you can use almond oil for yourself as well. Almond oil has a natural bleech agent. It gives your skin narishment and shine natural way. You don't need to use any kind of lotion after that.

I am so happy to see so many new all natural baby products. As a nurse I have given medications via ointment on the skin that absorbs into the blood and can do almost any action that its counterpart "oral meds" can do...I always wondered if we gave these medications via the skin and it has the same affect as oral, well doesn't everything we put on our skin get absorbed??? Yes what goes ON the baby goes IN the baby! I am here from Baby Blast- All natural flavored Binky Spray. Thanks for your great products at Whole Foods Market!

I have a new born with sensitive skin and I heard of one that has goat milk in it?

@JAN - I would encourage you to reach out to your local store to see if they carry a goat milk option for babies. Our products vary between locations so they will be able to let you know what they have in stock. You can find a list of contact info at http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/stores/list.
