Beauty for the Mama and the Baby

By Courtney Gerring, Contributing Editor

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.

It’s a brand that you can depend on to deliver high-quality skincare, makeup, supplements, and now a mother and baby line of products. It’s a one-stop shop for all things natural health and beauty. As a new mom myself, it’s important to use products that are made with organic ingredients. 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.

ATTITUDE produces natural personal care and household products. The personal care products range from products for babies and kids, through to adults. The brand is completely EWG VERIFIED™, 100% vegan and cruelty-free.

There’s no worry about rashes or allergic reactions with this brand, plus it has an easy to administer pump and with one product doing two jobs, we’ll take it.


Mama Mio - Pregnancy Boob Tube


This vegan, cruelty-free cream is formulated to leave skin feeling refreshed, but doesn’t leave a sticky cream feeling, and has a natural fragrance. It can also be used while breastfeeding to keep dry skin away, plus it increases the skin elasticity. It’s important to continue self-care rituals during this postpartum time, and applying a hydrating cream that is targeted to help keep your girls feeling refreshed is definitely a new ritual any new mom should be doing. Because boobs need love too.
