Our Top Picks


Aveeno Baby Fragrance Free Lotion

If you prefer a nice daily lotion to use on your baby that is fragrance-free, try Aveeno Baby lotion. You can use it daily without your baby's skin feeling greasy.


Earth Mama Baby Lotion

Delightfully scented baby lotion that goes in without being greasy. It also is chemical-free, making it safe for your baby's skin and system. The lovely orange/vanilla combination is so nice, it will make you smile every time you smell your baby.


Noodle & Boo Skincare Line

The Noodle & Boo Baby Skin Care line is a great set of products that are specially formulated for a baby's skin. The scents are gentle and the packaging is parent-friendly.


Mustela Hydra Bebe Baby Lotion

Mustela is famous for their baby products. This lotion is very popular. It has a very strong scent which can be a bit much if you are sensitive to smells or have severe allergies. For everyone else, they describe it as awesome.


California Baby Diaper Area Wash

This spray/spritz is used for diaper changes. It helps cleanse a sensitive area in a non-burning fashion. It also smells really nice. Try using this in addition to regular or cloth baby wipes.


Stelatopia Moisturizing Cream

Stelatopia Moisturizing Cream from Mustela is not overly fragrant and goes on very easily. It's also gentle enough that my child with eczema can use it without having their skin irritated.

While expensive, it does the trick when so many others of equal expense do not. It is also great for the mother-to-be who has sensitive skin.


California Baby Massage Oil

This handy massage oil comes in a pump form with just a touch of aromatherapy for a calming effect.

While California Baby has many fragrances, this one is our favorite. It's a great idea for a baby shower gift and helps make baby massage quick and easy to ensure it gets incorporated into diaper changes or bath time.


Burt's Bees Baby Bee Buttermilk Soap Bar

This is a great product, particularly for washing slippery babies. This also gives you control so you don't have liquids running in baby's eyes. It does a great job at getting baby clean. The smell? It's great. 


Gerber Grins & Giggles

This gentle foaming wash is great for daily use. The foaming help prevent spills or bad applications.
