Seventh Generation Coconut Care Diaper Cream {Review}

I have always used coconut oil when my babies have gotten a diaper rash. I don’t always start with it, but if I can’t kick a rash with other creams, then I always slather it on before calling the doctor. Both my littles have always had really sensitive skin and they get a rash anytime they have a dirty diaper for any length of time. BK#2 is much worse than BK#1 ever was. The poor guy always seems to have some sort of rash starting or going. I will have it cleared up for a day or so and he will start teething, or take an extra long nap and it’s back full force! Coconut oil just about always clears it up in a day or two, it is that awesome. The only negative about it is it’s an oil. You have change diapers more often because it soaks into the side of the diaper and causes leaks.

WHY I USE COCONUT OIL FOR DIAPER RASHES:

  • It has natural antimicrobial, antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties to help the healing and prevention of a rash.
  • It also contains lauric acids and caprylic acids that are natural yeast fighting agents.

So it basically gets rid of any type of rash your child (or even yourself) has!

Seventh Generation just came out with a diaper cream with coconut oil in it! When I saw it at Target, I was so excited! I have never found anything made for little bums with coconut oil in it. I have just been working around the diaper leaks because it is what works best for my little ones!

Other awesome ingredients: Sunflower seed oil, zinc oxide, palm oil, and rosemary extract. Seventh Generation special formulated it to protect sensitive skin with a non toxic formula that is pediatrician tested!untitled.png

  • GLUTEN FREE
  • NO MINERAL OIL
  • NO PETROLATUM
  • NO PARABENS AND DYES
  • NO FORMALDEHYDE

It is a thick cream that you have to spread around pretty well but when it warms up to your fingers, it spreads easily. There’s absolutely no scent either! So even though you have to spread it on, you won’t be smelling it all day!

The price point is pretty average at $9.99 for a 4 oz tube. The only downfall I have for this product is that you can only find it at Target. Now, I don’t have a problem with that because I have a target problem like most 20-something moms, but I know Target isn’t located everywhere! But it is available on their website. Seventh Generation also released a Coconut Care moisture lotion (7.6oz for $8.99) and a Coconut Care foaming shampoo and wash (9oz for 9.99), both available online as well as in store!

Cute packaging, awesome ingredients, superb quality and most importantly, it’s effective!

Noodle & Boo Skin Care {Review}

If you haven’t noticed (or are a first time reader, in that case – hello!), BurritoBuzz loves finding and sharing new skin care products for baby. I look for products that are hypoallergenic for baby’s delicate skin and with no harmful chemicals. I recently found a fantastic, luxurious skin care line for babies and for mamas that I have to share! Noodle & Boo sent me several samples to try with my four month old and I am in love with every single one of them!

Noodle & Boo is a skin care line designed developed specifically for ultra-sensitive skin. The founder Christine Burger worked with holistic and natural healthcare providers to create products that nourish, protect and replenish delicate and sensitive skin. The ingredients used in Noodle & Boo products are certified organic and derived from natural resources. I love that the products are made in the USA and are manufactured in a pharmaceutical-like environment so the quality is superb. Noodle & Boo also has a complete line just for those with super sensitive skin and eczema.

You can rest easy knowing the products are free from a slew of harmful ingredients:

  • Parabens
  • Phthalates
  • Sulfates
  • PPG’
  • Dyes
  • GMO’s
  • Triclosan
  • Formaldehyde Donors
  • Bisphenol A (BPA)
  • Essential Oilsgift_newborn_deluxe_detail

The first thing I noticed (and loved) was the smell of the products. It’s the epitome of what a baby smells like. They somehow bottled the smell of a newborn and it is fantastic. I received four amazing samples, Noodle & Boo Newborn 2-in-1 Hair & Bodywash (8oz for $14), Super Soft Lotion (8oz for $14), Ultimate Ointment (2.5oz for $15) and Baby Balm (4.5oz for $16). I love all of the products I got to try. The hair and body wash gets my little babe clean, even in all of her rolls (and there are a lot!) and keeps her smelling great. The lotion keeps her skin hydrated, soft and smooth all day. She’s had a few dry patches on her elbows, I’m really hoping it’s not eczema (it’s not bad, so I don’t know if it is or not) and I applied the Baby Balm which provides long-lasting moisture and comforts irritated skin. I love that it’s super thick and after using for a few days, the dry patches have subsided for the most part! The Ultimate Ointment is perfect for diaper rashes, dry skin or eczema as gift_big_sister_brother_detailwell. It creates a moisture repellant to promote natural healing of rashes. I use it for the rash on my little one’s neck. Her rolls are trapping moisture and the Ohio heat has caused a heat rash. The ointment has helped tremendously.

I love Noodle & Boo products and I would love to try more, especially products for mama! The only issue, is the price. This is a luxury brand (so many celebrities swear by Noodle & Boo, check out their testimonials and who loves Noodle & Boo here!) so the cost is a little high but totally doable if you want high quality products. Be sure to check out Noodle & Boo’s website here. They seriously have so many awesome products to offer for both baby and mom!super_soft_lotion_detail

Seventh Generation Natural Laundry Detergent {Review}

When you have kids, you want to find the best possible products to use on and around them. You don’t want unnecessary chemicals and synthetic materials to be used around your precious little ones, whether it’s cleaning supplies, skin care products or something as simple as laundry detergent. I never really put much thought into the type of 41d4UiaXwwL._AC_UL320_SR198,320_detergent I was using until I was given a few samples of Seventh Generation Natural Laundry Detergent right before my youngest was born. It made me rethink (and ultimately switch laundry soaps) what I was using to wash our clothes with.

Seventh Generation’s laundry detergent is awesome. It allows me to wash all of our clothes together, including my infant and toddler’s clothing. Because it is so gentle, I feel really good about washing my baby’s clothing in a detergent that gets her clothing clean and keeps her clothes free of harmful chemicals. Seventh Generation laundry detergent comes in several different types of soap (in liquid or powder form), including a new detergent specifically meant for baby’s delicate skin (which I love a million times more than Dreft, as I cannot stomach it’s strong fragrance). It cleans in all water temperatures and it has enzymes that lift stubborn stains, which we all know are inevitable with babies and kids (and adults, too).


IT’S NATURAL!Seventh-Generation-logo

  • Designed for Standard and HE machines
  • Free of dyes & synthetic fragrances
  • USDA Certified Biobased 97%
  • Supports sustainable palm oil
  • Works in all temperatures
  • 2x concentrated formula
  • Hypoallergenic

I give it a 5 out of 5 stars. I was impressed from the very first wash and have been a customer ever since. If you want a detergent that is truly harmless for your family, Seventh Generation is the way to go. And it works, which is what we all want in the end: fresh clean clothes for the whole family. It keeps clothes clean and our skin free of harmful chemicals. It’s a win-win for everyone!

Be sure to follow Seventh Generation on Instagram, on Facebook and on Twitter! And don’t forget to check out all of Seventh Generation’s family-friendly products here! I also only use their plant-based natural hand soaps, the fresh lemon & tea tree scent is to die for! Seventh Generation also makes Free & Clear diapers and baby wipes and I have to say, the diapers are very absorbent and the wipes are nice and thick, they’re great at cleaning up yucky messes!

Lil’ Leona Baby Wash {Organic Review}

Alright, guys. As a parent, I obviously always want what is best for my baby.

  • Sometimes I’m naive.
  • Sometimes I’m over-educated.
  • Sometimes I’m just trying to survive.

(Mostly the third one.)

So I feed my guy as much organic food as I can. I try pretty diligently, but also know that he’s going to be exposed to a lot out of my control… because, let’s face it, America is really slacking on healthy food/products (you can do some research on this, but I personally was amazed by the number of things banned in other countries that are acceptable here.)514VrwBWcWL

When it came to body washes/lotions… I just didn’t think about it. I received a ton of Johnson & Johnson baby toiletries at my baby shower, and proceeded to use them, not realizing what I was exposing my baby to. Really, you can google various baby products that are carried at large retail chains and might be shocked at some of the information you find. If you want to read just one of the MANY articles I found, you can check it out here. It’s hard to find the time to research all of this stuff, and I get REALLY frustrated that products have such poor/misleading labeling.

So outside of just those factors: I noticed my son really hating bath time. Even if I avoided getting water in his face, he almost always would splash some into his eyes. His eyes would get red and irritated. I thought this stuff was tear-free? Also, a lie. Most shampoos for babies aren’t actually tear free, which you can read about here and here.

I went on a mission to find something that was GOOD for my baby and wouldn’t irritate61YCcxGkzuL._SL1024_ his eyes. There isn’t much on the shelves at a standard grocery store (if you’re lucky enough to have a Babies R Us close by, you might find some California Baby or Honest Company.)

I found a company called Leona, and their baby wash+shampoo had amazing ratings, and was 100% natural and organic. I ordered it, and am thrilled with the purchase.

This wash is a little pricier, $14 for 16 oz. That being said, it takes less than a dime-sized amount to wash my entire tiny human from head to toe. It has a very light floral scent, but cannot be detected after washed off.

I also noticed that my son’s hair is softer, and seems cleaner somehow. There is no residue left behind.81DP+bbIDmL._SL1500_

I am absolutely in love with this product and what the company stands for! Check them out and consider testing this alternative to the typical Johnson & Johnson products!
