There are several great recipes out on the internet . My favorite is from Mommypotaus. Using natural ingredients such as olive oil, coconut oil and clove bud.

13. Mittens

Besides being super duper cute on babies they are needed to protect their faces. Babies nails grow like weeds and it’s important you place mittens on their hands to insure they won’t leave scratch marks on their cheeks. The awesome thing though mittens are super cheap and an easy fix.

14. Baby Bath

A baby’s first bath ( or first one at home at least) will be something you’ll remember for the rest of your life. Having a baby bath will that experience way easier and more enjoyable. Baby baths help support your babies head and help insure no water will go into your babies mouth. All while they have the room to kick around and enjoy their bath.
