We might not be a 100% eco-friendly family, but we’re always taking steps to become more friendly to our planet. Today I wanted to talk to you about a brand that I really level with. Eco by Naty are a Swedish born eco company that create, produce and sell a multitude of eco-friendly products, predominately for babies and young children. I was recently sent out some of their products to try with Tyler so today I’m going to give you the full low down!
Baby Diapers (Nappies)
If you have a baby, you need nappies, there’s no way around it. Until I discovered Naty, I didn’t know that eco-friendly disposable nappies were available! I was under the impression that we had our standard store bought disposable nappies that take hundreds of years to decompose or reusable cloth nappies. I’ve not yet been brave enough to try cloth nappies(although we do use reusable wipes!) One of the things that I really like about these is that there are no nasty chemicals in their make up, including:
So we’ve switched out our regular nappies to theses ones and so far, so good! They fit great on Tyler(he’s currently in size 5’s/5+) and we’ve had no leaks! They do feel a bit stiff on the exterior when you first take them out of the packet, but the inside feels super soft and Tyler is definitely comfortable in them.
Available in sizes Newborn – 6 from £6.25
Diapering Pants (Nappy Pants)
We’ve also been giving the nappy pants a go! Although Tyler is 18 months old, we still regularly use nappies instead of nappy pants, but it’s becoming increasingly difficult to get him to remain still enough laying down to get a nappy on, so nappy pants make change time that bit easier! Again, we’ve been trialling these and so far we’ve had no discomfort or leeks at all, so they’re a winner for us!
Available in sizes 4,5 and 6 from £7.49
Unscented Wet Wipes
Finding the right wipes for your babies delicate skin can be tough, but these ones certainly get a gold star from us! Soft to the touch and enriched with nature’s soothing ingredients like aloe vera and chamomile, they’re suitable on even the littlest of bottoms. With them being unscented I’ve also found them handy for mucky hands and mouths at meals times too.
Flushable Wet Wipes – Unscented
I can see these being really handy for when Tyler is starting potty/toilet training. These are made from natural and renewable material and are made up of 98.5% water!
Baby Rash Cream
We’ve only needed to start to use a nappy rash cream for Tyler in the last two months or so. We’ve had a sore little tush which we put down to teething(apparently the excess saliva can make babies poop more acidic, therefore hurting their little bottoms) so we’ve tried a couple of different creams but the Naty baby rash cream is certainly our favourite so far. A little goes a long way! What’s great also is that the ingredients used in this cream are all ethically sourced and cruelty free.
For Mum and Dad:
Being a parent, you spend a lot of time washing your hands, which in my case tends to really dry my skin out. So keeping this hand cream by our sink is really helping to add that essential moisture back into my hands. Similarly to the nappy rash cream, this hand cream is made up of plant based materials and again is 100% vegan and cruelty free. The formulation isn’t greasy and my skin soaks it up pretty quickly and it has a subtle sweet fragrance to it that I really like.
I’ve got to admit, it’s been a while since my feet have seen any kind of attention, let alone a pedicure! This foot cream has a similar formulation to the hand cream but feels slightly thicker. The scent isn’t as strong as the hand cream but there is still a nice fragrance about it. I’m making more of an effort to pamper my poor feet and I can see this become a staple product!
The overall verdict is, that as a family, we love the Eco by Naty products and 100% recommend them to you. Kind to the planet and kind to you. I believe that the easiest way to live an eco-friendly lifestyle is to take small, gradual steps as often as possible. I’d love to know if you’ve tried any of these products?
