A lot of people ask what Calendula does, how it smells, and why Weleda uses it in their natural baby products, so I listened in on the Weleda Baby Calendula Friday conference call that Weleda graciously provides for its Retailers.
Weleda Natural Gift Set for Baby :
Calendula provides a thin soft layer that stays on your skin after you put it on to moisturize and protect the babies skin. Its scent is soft kind of like chamomile. I use the Weleda Calendula baby lotion on my feet at night since it provides a cool, moisturizing layer. It has done wonders for my feet. I have been using the natural lotion on my daughter’s skin since birth and it feels as soft as the day she was born. I also use the natural cream on any dry itchy spots and it has helped so much.
Here is Weleda’s take:
Organic calendula flower extract soothes and softens your baby’s skin, wrapping your child in a layer of warmth and protection like a loving hug. Our Calendula Baby Cream also has essential fatty acids from sweet almond oil that protect your baby’s skin from drying out and render delicate or chafing skin supple and smooth. Gentle organic chamomile flower extract in our all natural baby cream soothes your baby’s skin with its calming anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. Developed with the assistance of midwives and physicians, your precious baby is naturally nourished and protected with our Calendula Baby Cream, turning chappy skin into happy skin.

We had a customer write us asking whether the Sophie Bath Toy by Vulli Callison was BPA-free …
The answer is YES, the Sophie Bath toy is BPA-free. I had verified this with their representative before ordering these for our store– as all of our products / gifts are natural, organic, or otherwise non-toxic.
The Vulli representative had ensured me that the product is indeed BPA-free, but since the customer was concerned, I wrote the company again, and received reports back from Consumer Product Safety Testing on 8 samples of the product that states that it tested as BPA free. No worries moms! They are absolutely fine for your babies’ natural bath or for a great natural baby gift basket!
Spotlight on the: Melobaby All-in-One Diaper Wallet and Changing Pad
The question we get most often is: Is this a diaper bag or just a one-diaper carrier and pad?
The answer is that it can definitely be substituted for a diaper bag just on a lower scale. It is just much more compact, but can fit 4-5 diapers. It also comes with a hold for wipes. What is special about the Melobaby is that it is extremely well made, durable, and easy to carry. It has a magnetized closure, and then flips over with this extra soft luxury feel fleece changing pad so that you are not just laying your baby on a thin plastic mat.
Here is a recent review from one of our customers:
Melobaby diaper changing wallet and changing pad is not your normal diaper changing accessory. It is much more convenient,–dad’s especially love them so that they are not carrying around a bulky bag around. We keep a Melobaby in both cars and it makes it easy to grab and leave one for grandma, or the school. It has a spacious pouch for wipes and pacifiers. One great pro is that the changing pad and Melobaby diaper wallet are washable. So every few months I throw it in the wash. It is an extremely durable product (made in Australia). The changing pad is made of a thick super soft fleece and the design of the Melobaby wallet is ultra hip and modern! Get one. You will love it.

We’ve had so many people ask us what the Sophie the Giraffe toy chain is.
You know the little plastic toys that are are attached to car seat carriers in order to entertain baby, well the Sophie Giraffe So Pure Chain is a car seat toy and more. We think it is the best organic baby gift you could give. You can wrap it around ANYTHING the baby is near. Simply attach the velcro around the nearest table or station that you have your baby set up at. You can also attach the babies Sophie teether and pacifier. (It has 3 entertaining toys on it itself). It is 100% organic cotton so if the baby puts it in its mouth– no worries! It makes a super memorable organic baby gift. By the way, the chain is plush and is obviously really a chain. It is safe and nothing that could actually tighten around your baby.
Here is a recent review on the Sophie chain from one of our customers:
Chloe from Austin, Texas
We wrap the Sophie Organic Baby Toy Chain around our son’s carrier, and let it hang down for entertainment in the car. It wraps so easily around anything and we can easily move it from place to place or play station to play station. The Sophie the Giraffe toy has two Velcro attachments. It has a leaf, a Sophie the Giraffe rattle, a ball that rings and and a tie for hanging up another fun toy for your babies entertainment. I forgot to mention that it is made of 100 PERCENT pure organic cotton. You always have to pay for ORGANIC, BUT IT IS WORTH IT! If you are interested in purchasing an organic baby gift you should def go for the Sophie the Giraffe organic cotton toy chain is my baby’s favorite source of entertainment.
I definitely recommend the Sophie the Giraffe toy for any baby!
