    Babies skin is so sensitive that the more natural a product for baby is the better.

    The younger a baby is, the more sensitive to chemicals or just their surroundings they are, even before birth. I think it's more important that the begining is as natural as possible.

    I think that it is extremely important for the products that pregnant mothers use while pregnant are natural. Babies can be extremely sensitive to so many things, that you really need to be careful as to what you, the mother is using, and what you are using on your baby once they arrive into the world.

    Skin is the largest organ on our body so the more natural the product is that we use on it, the better.

    I'd pick all categories if I could, but the skincare/body would have the biggest effect, therefore it's the most important. Also, healthy mommy = healthy bay.

    I picked skin & body because I felt it encompassed all the stated choices. Honestly I feel... that anything I put in or on my body...is an important choice. *The mommy must take care of herself and make good choices for the two of them...if the baby is to benefit.

    i picked skin and face. i feel that its important to what you are putting on your skin. skin sensitivity is among alot of us. the perfumes and stuff they add to skin products irrritate my skin. i like natural for make up and skin.

    I picked baby because they depend on us to keep them healthy and safe. They can't do it on their own.

    Your children will always come before you and you will naturally want to protect them with things that appear to be good for you (which is what you think you get when you see 'natural').
