Seventh Generation Baby Products: Great for Babies With Sensitive Skin
My husband and I began using Seventh Generation baby products because we wanted whatever that came in contact with our 17-month-old son’s extra-sensitive skin — whether it was diapers, wipes or the clothes he wore — to not be a potential irritant to his delicate skin.
Seventh Generation diapers, which are chlorine-free (and hence, gentler on baby skin and less harmful to the environment), look and feel nothing like conventional diapers on the market. But we were happily surprised by its performance: The diapers, which feel more paper-like than the other diapers we used in the past, were not only sturdy, absorbent but breathable. And we loved (loved!) the generously-sized tabs — it makes slapping a diaper on one squirmy, super-strength boy that much easier.
From the diapers, it made sense to add Seventh Generation Baby Wipes to Travis’s diaper routine. The chlorine-free, alcohol-free wipes do a good clean-up job without stripping Travis’s skin.
We also began using the company’s Baby Laundry Liquid Detergent. The non-toxic, hypoallergenic detergent is free of dyes and fragrances — and the green thing to use for our environment. But on a purely selfish level, Travis’s dad and I are just happy his freshly-laundered clothes are clean — and feel like his second skin.
