In 2020 everything revolves around ecology and environmental friendliness. Even in the world of baby equipment as new parents are increasingly making the conscious choice to go for ecological products. Eco-friendly products are not only wool socks, but all trendy products with which you as a parent can show off. With every purchase you automatically make an environmentally friendly choice. This so you can contribute to a better environment.

As a future parent you need a lot, of course. Just think of toys, clothing and care materials. In this article I, mom-blogger Stephanie, focus on five musthaves. 

#1. Care bag

A versatile nursery bag is really a must-have for parents. You really need to make a conscious choice, because you’re going to use it a lot in the years to come. Dad bottles, nappies, wet wipes, spare clothes,… Going out with a baby is often comparable to moving house. That’s why it’s best to make a conscious, smart choice. 

The nursery bags from the Mini-Me collection doesn’t only look hip with their bright colours, they are also 100% eco-friendly. They are made of recycled plastic. 

#2. Baby sling

Parents with children are often inclined to opt for a stroller by default. But as a mother myself, I have to admit that a stroller can sometimes be a bit cumbersome. You’re a bit inhibited, so to speak. A sling or baby carrier against that gives you a great feeling of freedom. Although mommy’s used to carry babies a lot in the past, now we see a rise in the use of it. 

A baby sling or baby carrier can be found in every baby store. But also here there are many eco-friendly ones. The best ones are already here. 

#3. Feeding pillow

Whether you choose to breastfeed or bottle, a feeding pillow is simply a must-have. It provides the necessary support and comfort during the numerous feeding moments with your baby. Believe me when I say that feeding can take up to 45 minutes in the beginning. Then you’ll be thankful to have such a nutritional pillow in your home afterwards. 

It’s not only useful for feeding your baby, but if you’re high pregnant, it’s great to sleep with. My daughter is now three years old and our pillow is standard in our sofa. Lovely to still sleep on. 

Environmentally friendly food cushions are made of organic cotton.

#4. Sleeping bag

Eat – sleep – poop, repeat. That’s the short summary of your brand new baby’s life. So a good sleeping bag is a big must-have. A good sleeping bag also ensures a better night’s sleep. Babies who have a great need for security, for example, will fall asleep more easily if you have a good closed sleeping bag.

#5. Diapers

As I mentioned above, a baby’s life consists mainly of eating, sleeping, and yes, getting diapers dirty as well. Parents who want to live eco-friendly prefer washable diapers. Many people still have the stigma that washable diapers for hippies are unhygienic, but in 2020 this is absolutely not the case anymore.

These are the 5 must haves for parents who choose an environmentally friendly way of life. Of course, there are still a lot of things you will need such as toys, shoes or care products. Also for this you will find many webshops on the internet that sell this with sustainable materials.
