You want what is best for your baby. You buy car seats and cribs. You look at all the latest information on the latest and best options in child rearing. Then, you lather our little darlings in chemicals such as sodium lauryl sulphate which can strip skin of vital natural oils and cause irritation to their delicate skin.
Wait, can that be right? This sounds like some kind of crazy torture. And no one would knowingly want to harm their baby’s tender skin. Perhaps you know this ritual by another name. You likely call it bath time at your house. If you are using commercially available soap on your baby, this is probably a very accurate description of your daily routine.
So, what can a parent do? Simply switch to natural soap. “By making homemade soap for kids, it gives you the liberty of using the ingredients that you want to use and avoid the harmful chemicals like SLS.” You can create a soap which addresses the skin needs of your baby to make it a perfect fit for him or her. It is one little thing you can do to make everyday just a little more gentle for your precious bundle.
