Yes, there’s the scent of their yummy heads and soft skin, but babies do a lot of stinky things. But using a big fake room scent machine just doesn’t seem like the healthiest choice, nor does spraying a ton of chemicals into the air.

If you’re looking for a little scent relief, I highly recommend the reed diffusers from K.Hall Designs, the brain-child of Missouri couple Kelley and John Barr. Made from the purest essential oils with absolutely no additives or enhancers, you just pour the oils in the glass jar, pop in a few reeds, and your chosen scent gently permeates the room. (My fave? Grapefruit Mint.)

No sneezing, no gagging, and best of all, no smelling of the poop. -Kristen
