Fergus is a morning baby. He grins and shows me his dimples when I lift him out of his crib. He raises his little fists above his head, arches his back, and sticks out his bottom. Then he gets a big hug from Mama.
This morning, as I cuddled my baby, he tried to suck on my chin. Cute, but slimy, and a reminder to use the safest possible products on my skin. I don’t want potentially harmful chemicals migrating into his mouth or onto his skin.
I moisturize with coconut, almond, or olive oil. When it’s edible — and organic — I feel good about putting it on my face and body.
