4 Best Organic baby products You Might Want to Know About

Ever since I delivered my first baby in Dubai, I had been in constant battles to search and identify the best products for her, from books, through friends and online. Simply, I want the best for her — what’s the best alternatives of breast milk when I travel for work, what’s the best baby products that irritate the sensitive baby skin the least, what’s the easiest way to keep a calm and quiet baby in the hot summer. 

I also quickly learned that even the softest baby skin won’t stay that way without some serious caring. There are irritants lurking in the most unexpected places.

To give the best for my baby girl, I have tried quite a few baby products, firstly on myself. Here are just some recommendations — there’s so much more you need to know about, from bath time to bedtime and beyond.

Aqua Wipes

Keywords: biodegradable, award-winning

As one of the most popular baby products among UK mums per se, Aqua wipes is 100% biodegradable, perfume-free and plastic-free. You could save your baby from skin sensitivities or eczema, and also avoid burden to the environment. These organic baby wipes, containing 99.6% water and rest with organic aloe vera, won Best Eco-Friendly Baby Wipes. I love the value box, cause it makes life so much easier during nappy changing!

Aquaphor Baby Healing Ointment

Keyword: diaper rash, eczema, sensitive skin

Not only Aquaphor is a multi-purpose ointment that can be used for baby diaper rash, chapped cheeks, cuts, scrapes, burns, eczema and more skin irritations, it also gives the baby a soft, smooth and blemish-free skin. In fact, it’s clinically proven to relieve diaper rash quickly. it’s great for sensitive skin because it’s fragrance-free, preservative-free, and dye-free.

It is just as good for you as it is for babies. Rub it on your feet at night before putting on socks for bed; rub a little on your lips when they are chapped – you will be amazed!

Aquaphor is probably the best multi-purpose skincare product for babies and yourself.

Four Cow Farm Mother’s All-Natural Pack

Keywords: organic, preservative-free

I like Four Cow Farm and have used quite a few different products. This Australian organic baby product brand promises no foaming additives, fragrances or preservatives. The Mother’s All-Natural Daily Rich Cream Salve is a restorative blend of the finest organic oils and extracts for soothing and caring for sensitive, stressed or stretching skins. Intensive Restorative Oil helps enhance the retention of moisture in the skin for your baby, and restore the elasticity for mums. Hair & Body Wash is gentle enough to be used on normal hair without the need for conditioners, great for mums and babies.

A friend of mine bought these three pieces as baby shower gifts, which turned me into a huge fan of natural baby products!

Four Cow Farm’s wash, oil and salve are all 100% natural.

Kabrita Infant Milk

Keywords: non-GMO goat milk, glyphosate-free

After the first six months, baby milk formula could be slowly introduced to the diet. There is strong evidence that goat milk more closely mimics human breast milk than does cow milk, and Kabrita uniquely contains the beneficial type of palm oil. 

In basic nutritional terms, goat milk and cow milk are pretty similar. Goat milk tends to be higher in several vitamins and minerals, and more importantly, easier to digest and less likely to trigger allergies and food sensitivities. For babies, whose immune and digest systems are still developing, this could make a big difference. 

Kabrita is the only brand that uses plant-derived fats that match the structure of most common fat molecules in breast milk. It is also certified as glyphosate-free.

How many diapers does my baby need?

In the first year, the approximate number of diapers is 3,200 (Around 62 Diapers per week). With an average price of leading diapers brands being around 0.94 AED/diaper, that will translate to over 3,000 AED just for diapers alone. This is for a newborn who is born on their due date. After the first year, the approximate number of diapers becomes 2,900 diapers annually which is 56 Diapers per week.

During the first months, more diapers are consumed and diaper changes are more frequent with an average of around 11 diaper changes a day during the first month. As the baby grows, the need for diaper changes becomes less and less. By the 5th month (22 weeks), your precious angel should average 8 diapers a day which translates to around 56 diapers a week. This will continue until they become potty trained and not require any more diapers.

The industry practice is to have similar retail prices for the whole range. Having said that, the diapers manufacturers achieve that via placing less diapers in the pack effectively making the cost per diaper go up in price. To be fair, babies become bigger in size, thus requiring more diaper material as they go up in size.

Furthermore, the sizes for diapers have an area where they overlap as per the table below: Size Weight Range Overlap with previous size

1 Up to 5 kg n/a
2 4-6 kg 4-5 kg
3 4-9 kg 4-6 kg
4 7-18 kg 7-9 kg
4+ 9-20 kg 9-18 kg
5 12-25 kg 12-20 kg

Our novice recommendation is for you to try and delay going up in size as much as possible. However, you risk the following:

a) the diapers becomes tight on your baby possibly causing irritation and rash, and
b) having leakage and blow-outs. When frequent, then switch to the bigger size.
