Our April Featured Brands
iPlay Organic Woven Terry Hooded Towel
Give your baby the spa experience with this luxurious hooded towel. Made from organic cotton, it’s thick and absorbent to keep your baby warm and toasty right out of the sink or tub. We love that it’s heavier than most baby towels, for added absorbency. Plus, it’s generously sized, so it’s sure to get months of use.
Satsuma Designs Bamboo Flannel Wash Cloths & Reusable Wipes
Pick up one of these organic wash cloths and you’ll understand why we chose them for you—they’re buttery-soft, absorbent and lightweight enough to use as reusable wipes. (They even fit standard wipe warmers.) They make very special wash cloths, too. The quick-drying flannel is made from bamboo rayon.
My Dentist’s Choice Tooth Tissues
It’s never too early to begin protecting your baby against cavities, but brushing one or two teeth may feel like…overkill. Doctors recommend wiping baby’s gums and mouth with a washcloth after every feeding, but that can be a challenge, too. Instead, use disposable Tooth Tissues to remove plaque from baby’s new teeth and gums. They’re formulated with xylitol, a natural cavity-fighter derived from plants.
Seventh Generation Chlorine Free Baby Wipes
We love that Seventh Generation’s baby wipes are chlorine- and alcohol-free. Unlike most wipes, they use plant-derived ingredients for gentle cleansing. That makes them ideal for sensitive baby bottoms! We’ve sent you a full-sized travel pack— perfect for your diaper bag or the car.
Seventh Generation Natural Hand Wash
Even if your little one isn’t using the potty regularly yet, it’s a great time to reinforce handwashing! Many moms use handwashing as part of their child’s nighttime routine, to kick off a lifetime of good hygiene habits. We love Seventh Generation’s hypoallergenic hand wash, scented with essential oils. We’ve chosen their Fresh Citrus scent (of course).

We’ve chosen one of their best-selling formulations for you to sample: the lightweight Antioxidant Serum, which is clinically proven to reduce free- radical skin cell damage by up to 85%.

We’ve packed a box of treats for your child—this one’s just for you! Juice Beauty is committed to producing healthy, organic beauty products that really work—without harmful chemicals. We’ve chosen one of their best-selling formulations for you to sample: the Green Apple Peel combines organic fruit acid and raw cane sugar to gently exfoliate even sensitive skin.
Eco Mom gift card
At Eco Mom, you’ll find eco-friendly baby and kid goods, conveniently gathered all in one place. We love their selection, and now you can, too: they’re graciously including a $15 gift card in this month’s box!
Green Sprouts Organic Cotton Bath Puppet
Delight your bathing beauty with this funny, cute bath puppet. We like this bath mitt because it’s literally at hand, no matter how your baby wriggles around. (No need to fish it off the bottom of the tub!) As baby gets older, you can put on an impromptu puppet show in the bathtub to keep him happy among the bubbles. Made from 100% organic cotton.
Green Sprouts Stacking Cup Set
We love simple toys like these cups that reinforce multiple important skills. In the bathtub, he’ll learn that the floating cups hold and pour water. Outside the tub, he’ll start by grabbing and banging the cups together, eventually graduating to stacking! This classic toy features drainage holes for quick, clean drying.
Green Sprouts Stacking Duck Set
Add a pop of color to bathtime with these sweet BPA- and PVC-free ducks. Baby can practice dumping and stacking for motor skills development—and you can encourage early imaginative play by talking about duckies in the water. Perfectly sized for small hands to wave and hold, they feature drain holes for easy clean-up.
Green Sprouts Sea Friends Bath Toy
(Note: This toy is rated 3+, so it may be a little early for your toddler. Please use with adult supervision.) Bath time is more fun with a friend—so we’re sending your little one fifteen of them! These adorable, PVC-free shapes are easy for little hands to hold. They stick to smooth surfaces when wet. They also stick to small, wet bellies, which should encourage lots of laughs! A great excuse to learn about undersea animals.
I’ll See You In The Morning by Mike Jolley, Illustrated by Mique Mariuchi
There’s a reason bedtime stories are an essential part of a nighttime routine. They encourage lying down in bed and snuggling—great practice for a full night’s sleep! This story’s gentle, reassuring words and sweet images calm bedtime fears, especially helpful for children who have a hard time making that transition. Sure to be a bedtime favorite.
Only In Dreams by Paul Frank Industries
Many doctors believe night terrors occur, in part, because toddlers don’t fully understand the difference between dreams and reality. With good humor and cute, quirky illustrations, “Only In Dreams” makes the connection between dreaming and imagining. Parents appreciate the surprisingly sophisticated lesson…and children love Julius the monkey!
Branam All Natural Xylitol Tooth Gel
Until toddlers learn how to spit out toothpaste, dentists recommend using fluoride-free products that are safe to swallow. We picked Branam bubblegum because our kids love the taste, and we love the added xylitol. In case you hadn’t heard of xylitol (we hadn’t!), it’s a sweetener found in natural sources like fruits and vegetables. Xylitol has been shown to reduce tooth decay, so it’s a great alternative for kids too young for fluoride.
Kid O Floating Ducks
Get the bathtime giggles with this adorable mommy duck and baby duckling! Inside the bath, the baby nestles snugly on the mommy’s back, making it easy for little fingers to match the set. Outside the bath, extend play by rocking them gently on any flat surface. Unlike traditional bathtub ducks, these ducks are waterproof—so they won’t take on water, making them easy to keep clean and mildew-free.
Green Toys Tugboat
This toy was so popular with our subscribers that we wanted your baby to have one, too! Green Toys are made from 100% recycled milk containers. Their simple, sturdy toys stimulate even the youngest imaginations. This bright, fun tugboat will be the focus of years of bathtub games. The wide spout at the front allows it to scoop water— perfect for rinsing shampoo or an impromptu waterfall. Contains no BPA or phthalates.
Skip*Hop Dunck Stacking Bath Toys
Many parents recommend a bath to help children wind down at the end of the day. These stylish duck bath toys float, pour, then stack up neatly for storage. Plus they’re dishwasher-safe and BPA-free! They’re fun and functional: use one duck for rinsing shampoo while your child plays with the other two.
