But we often find that when you break down the prices, whoa — it’s expensive to get safe sunscreens for kids! Especially considering how much we’re using. So this year we thought we’d take a good look at their short list of the EWG Best Kids’ Sunscreens, find the average prices online (generally from Amazon, Drugstore.com, or the brand’s own website if the product isn’t widely available at...

The EWG list of the safest sunscreens for kids. Just in time for summer

Each year, I check out the Environmental Working Group’s Guide to Sunscreens to find the safest sunscreens for kids. With a slew of fair-skinned redheads in my family, I feel like I go through gallons of sunscreen each summer, and while I’m not all-organic-all-the-time, I do tend to splurge on lotions that are safer for my kids and lower in chemicals since we use so much of them all season. Related: What is the safest sunscreen for kids and babies? If you haven’t yet been to the site,  EWG ranks an impressive 1700 products, from spray sunscreen to lip balm with SPF, and scores them (lower numbers are...

Naturally gentle baby skincare from everyone’s favorite giraffe

Other than diapers and onesies when it comes to babies, is there anything more iconic than Sophie the Giraffe? Even my friends without kids recognize the now ubiquitous French baby teether.

Baby Pibu skin care for babies: Perfect for those of us who don’t have a pediatric dermatologist on speed dial.

Moms have long lamented the fact that newborns don’t come home from the hospital with instruction manuals. But Baby Pibu skin care for babies, founded by dermatologist mom Dr. Amy Kim, actually does come with instruction cards. Okay, so they only help with how to care for your infant’s skin, and not what the heck that cry means and how it’s different from those six other cries…but still. The baby skin care market is flooded with products that claim to be safe for sensitive skin, but personally I feel pretty good knowing an actual dermatologist was behind the formulation. Also the fact that Baby Pibu leaves out...
