The first Christmas we had with our son, he was closing in on 1 year old and so close to walking so we decided to forgo the regular tree and get a table top tree to keep his hands off EVERYTHING! The sparkle, shine and bright colors of all the ornaments are really more than any baby or young toddler can resist. Oh, and the dog too…..non-toxic gifts for babies
Like probably every parent in America, you spend all this time trying to find the right gift for your baby or toddler and they are more interested in the wrapping paper or the box than the gift. So save all those boxes!
Babies and toddlers put everything in their mouths so you want to be sure that the products they get are safe for their little, growing, developing bodies.non-toxic gifts for babienon toxic batoys

Amber Teething Necklace
Most amber teething necklaces are made with Baltic amber which contains a magic ingredient – succinic acid. The teething necklace isn’t meant to be chewed on but worn and as the necklace heats up against babies skin, it releases oils that contain succinic acid which is then absorbed into babies skin. Succinic acid has anti-inflammatory properties that can help to relieve pain associated with teething, among other things.non-toxic gifts for babies
BPA Free Teething Toy
When those little gums are sore, babies just want to chew. This top-rated toy is perfect. Pop it in the fridge or freezer first to make it cold for some extra relief.non toxic baby toys
I think this is brilliant. A teething ring necklace. Different from the teething necklaces because mom is wearing it and with the fabric ‘necklace’, it’ll be harder to lose in the house. I’m sure most moms will agree, necklace wearing is out while baby is teething.
Sensory and Learning Toys
My kids loved playing with these toys. My daughter could sit for hours just moving the beads along and changing directions. The beads are handcrafted with real wood and colored with non-toxic paint. There are suction cups on the bottom to prevent it from slipping.non toxic baby toys
This type of toy used to frustrate my son but my daughter could play with it forever. The toys from Green Toys are made from recycled polyethylene, which is a safe non-leaching type of plastic. These toys are made in the United States.
Another toy from Green Toys, every baby needs a set of stacking cups. My kids used to love playing with stacking cups in the bathtub and outside at the water table we had set up. They’re great for developing fine motor skills and counting skills. Bonus, they are made from recycled plastic milk cartons!
All babies need a bath at some point and they are more apt to enjoy it if they can hold, squeeze and chew on toys.
Any parents nightmare, bath toys infested with mold. These are mesh, PVC, and BPA free. No phthalates, hazardous paints or removable parts (choking hazard). In my opinion, the best part is they are machine washable. If you are concerned about toys made in China, these are made in China.

I started reading to my son before he could sit up. It was all part of our bedtime routine. These are some of our favorites.
