As a new mom-to-be you are constantly considering what you are putting on your skin or in your body, and once you become a new mom you are now constantly thinking about what you are putting on your baby’s skin. It’s been so exciting finding new brands that are catering to mamas and babies. A newborn’s skin can be sensitive and finding products with natural, organic ingredients is extremely important. Plus it’s extra important to not forget about the mama and continue to establish self-care routines.
CocoBaba - Coconut Body Oil
CocoBaba was designed by a mother, for mothers, moms-to-be, or when anyone wants to feel mothered, and features three incredible products made with 100% raw certified organic coconut oil. The Coconut Body Oil is non-greasy and leaves the skin silky. The beautiful thing about it is that it locks in moisture and reduces the appearance of stretch marks, but you can also use it anywhere on the body to prevent dry and itchy skin.

The Apricot & Chamomile lotion for baby is non-irritating and made to soothe the delicate skin of a baby, plus you’ll love the scent. There is also a shampoo, conditioner, and body wash to complete the full line of baby products.
