This is a sponsored conversation with Burt’s Bees and SocialMoms. All opinions are my own, and I fully believe in the messaging of this post!
I am about to have a two year old. My son is officially a toddler. The past two years haven’t always been easy. Between moving, losing a pet, getting (and quitting!) a new job, things have been quite chaotic. Though, some things stay the same. I still write on this blog (7 years and counting!), I drive the same car, I use the same minty Burt’s Bees lip balm. I’ll never forget the first time I tried Burt’s Bees products in college, and I quickly became their biggest fan. I find old tubes of the stuff hiding under car seats or tucked in the bottom of a purse. So when it was time for me to start planning life with a newborn, I looked toward one of my favorites for guidance.
Baby Bee by Burt’s Bees are made with natural ingredients and fragrances. From buttermilk for moisturizing, beeswax to lock in moisture, shea butter to soften dry skin, aloe vera to sooth, coconut oil to help nurture sensitive skin, these natural products are gentle and soothing for my son’s delicate skin. I knew this was a brand that I could trust, since I had been using Burt’s Bees myself for quite some time. A baby has such delicate skin. It is important to give them a soothing start to life.
Some of my favorite Baby Bee products include Baby Bee Nourishing Lotion, Baby Bee Shampoo & Wash, Baby Bee Chlorine-Free Wipes, Baby Bee Cream-to-Powder, and Baby Bee Multipurpose Ointment. Even after two years these products still get great use with my son! The wipes and the cream-to-powder are quickly used up in my home, so I can vouch for their quality. Don’t be afraid to gift a new or expecting mama extra wipes or diaper cream. I didn’t think it was possible to go through tubes of cream and bulk boxes of wipes, but it IS possible. In fact, it’s kind of a given. I started life with a newborn with a large haul of baby products, but we ran out before nine months. If you are expecting or shopping for a new mother, products for sensitive skinned babies are always a plus. You can never predict how a baby will react to certain brands, fragrances, or materials. It is best to use gentle and natural items first.
By starting natural from day one, you won’t have to worry about chemicals with your child. These wipes are a good example of something a new mother will need. They are fragrance free (definitely a plus!) and soft.
Baby Shower Gift Ideas
- Gift the essentials with the Sweet Memories With Keepsake Photo Box Set. From calming ointments to gentle washes, lotions and cleansers, this bundle of baby love comes in a cute keepsake box that can be personalized with a photo. Any new mama would be thrilled to get this one!
- Spa gift certificate paired with cozy slippers

You can always stick to a baby registry to make sure you gift the right items. And, if you’re registering for your little one now, don’t waste too much time researching or trying new products just because. Spend more time with your family and less time worrying about harmful chemicals or materials in your new baby’s nursery. Stick to the basics and get ready to enjoy special moments like this:
A regular day at the park means so much more when I know my son is happy and healthy.
