Every year there's an avalanche of new baby products that promise to be the best on the market. Sometimes they are, but often times they don't live up to the hype. Among all of the products we test, there are those worthy of winning the LilSugar Editors' Picks of the Year. Here are the 2010 winners!
Since having my second child, I've been on a mission to green our home and provide my kids with the most eco-friendly options available. At the same time, I'm a bit of a clean freak who has been known to develop a nervous twitch when things start to feel dirty. So moving to eco-friendly household cleansers has been a slow migration. With the help of our friends at Babies R Us, we gathered a handful of green cleansers and put them to the test – attempting to clean off an infant's dirty high chair tray after a messy dinner of pureed butternut squash and apricots. Click through the following slides to see which cleaning agents made the grade in our home.
You wash your tot's hands frequently in hopes of preventing the tiniest of cold and flu germs from entering her body, but what do you do when her friend comes over with a runny nose, little cough and dirty fingers? Though her mom may wipe her nose incessantly, be sure to clean the toys they played with soon after the playdate ends.
While some mothers opt for an old fashion scrub down in diluted bleach, others look for more natural cleansing solutions. Dapple Toy Cleaner Wipes ($8) are made from fruit extracts and baking soda, meaning that no harsh chemicals are left on the surface of the toys when you are done. Phthalate, paraben, SLES and dye-free, the wipes are biodegradable and convenient to use.
