Congratulation to Peleg & Raz + Top Ten Eco-Friendly Baby Shower Gifts

It's that time of the year, or something. The Eco-Libris family grew yet again earlier today, when a new baby girl was born to Peleg and Raz Godelnik. Yes, our illustrious CEO and blogger is now a proud green parent. Now you understand why he's been reviewing all these green children's books of late :)

To celebrate the occasion, today's post brings some ideas for baby gifts. It was originally published in Eco Child's Play. We'll post some pictures later, promise.

Moby Baby WrapI've never been a big fan of baby showers (my children had Blessing Ways), and the silly baby shower games annoy me. The typical baby shower involves massive amounts of baby paraphernalia gifts that the soon-to-be mom often doesn't really need. A friend of mine recently asked me to make a list of eco-friendly baby shower gift ideas. This list includes babywearing items, bpa-free bottles, teething toys, clothes, and beauty products for babe. You don't have to be invited to an "eco" baby shower to give a green gift.

Top Ten Eco-Friendly Baby Shower Gifts

  1. Moby Wrap Baby Carrier: This wrap is perfect for carrying newborns. It is the most comfortable baby wearing apparatus, and it keeps the baby snugly held against your body and protected from curious strangers and their germs. It is made from a large piece of stretch cotton and can be used as a blanket as well as a wrap. It is available in an organic cotton material too.

  2. California Baby Shampoo and Bodywash: This all natural, SLS-free baby soap is perfect for a newborn's first bath. It is so gentle and safe, and it will not irritate eczema and cradle crap.
