Eco Baby Gifts

Apple Park's

Apple Park's "Picnic Pal"

Just in the time for Earth Day on April 22, the youngest member of the family can go green. These eco-friendly baby products show love for Mother Earth — and new moms will love them too.

Weil Baby pacifierWeil Baby’s bottles, sippy cups and pacifiers are made from glass or Tritan, a non-toxic clear substitute for plastic. Forgoing plastic eliminates the potential for the emission of the hazardous chemical BPA, which means you can feed your bundle of joy worry-free. Plus, a natural AirWave venting system reduces container leaks and spit-up from baby. $2.99-$52.99. Available at Babies“R”Us, Whole Foods and at www.weilbaby.com

My Natural Eco-PlushSuper-soft playthings are a must for an infant. The cute stuffed animals & Dr. Seuss characters from My Natural Eco-Plush are made from unprocessed cotton and colored with natural plant and mineral dyes. $9.99, portions of proceeds benefit the Jane Goodall Institute for protection of chimpanzees & their habitats. Available at Target. www.mynaturaltoy.com

You could win a Weil Baby pacifer, a My Natural Eco-Plush set, or a Dandelion teether or rattle! Click here.

Another adorable option is a collection of organic “Picnic Pals” for babies by Apple Park. The eco-friendly packaging is just as sweet as the cuddly animals. Opening the big red box reveals a sunny park scene where the imaginary “Picnic Pal” lives. $48. For stores, www.applepark.com

Dandelion rattle ringLooking for a gender-neutral baby gift? Look no further than the pastel yellow-and-green teethers and rattles from Dandelion Earth-Friendly Goods. They feature organic cotton fabrics, vegetable ink coloring and natural corn fiber fillers, making them safe for any baby, whether it’s a boy or a girl. $9.99-$14.99. Available at www.dandelionforbaby.com.
