    Default Natural/Organic/Evoluntionary Parenting

    Hello All,
    I'm pregnant with my first baby and am struggling to get the facts when it comes to the best organic/natural nappies, wipes, skin care etc for my bub. I have researched lots and wipes and it seems the water wipes are best. Has anyone tried these or does anyone have any other recommendations?
    Also. In wanting to co-sleep and demand feed. Can anyone recommend books/websights to help?
    Thanks in advance

    Make your own wipes! So easy and heaps cheaper then water wipes. I just put water and a tiny bit of coconut oil on mine. X

    We use Reynard wipes (all natural/organic dry wipes) that you just wet with water. We then use natures child organic bottom balm and have never had a case of nappy rash. For nappies we use Bambo Nature disposable organic ones. We've tried tons of different ones and have found these the best fit. They're really thin like they're barely there but really absorbent. We also co sleep and demand feed etc but haven't read any books as such. I did read a few websites and Facebook groups early on to see what I was comfortable doing though. I did read Beyond the Sling and some of Pinky McCays books though and took the messages that worked for me out of those.

    I use cloth wipes! Bought the cheeky wipes system but you can make your own too. Lots of people use baby flannels from Kmart etc, wet with water for use then wash with the cloth nappies - easy!
    I find they "grab" the poop a lot better too so you only need to use 1 per change.

    MooGoo is an Australian small company that makes completely natural, organic products, they have baby bottom cream, bubble bath, moisturisers and many many more. I use their aluminium free deodorant and many other of their products. They have a very good website.

    Anything by William Sears, Pinky McKay or James McKenna is a good place to start
    And Evolutionary Parenting (blog and facebook page).
