I started my search when Ilakkiya was 3 months old. By then she already had a severe rash due to over-wiping with wet wipes, she used to cry when we used a mild soap(Pigeon) as it hurt her eye, she also got a diaper rash. Well, I was totally crushed to know that I was nowhere close to handling a baby in a soft and gentle manner. I have never held any other baby in my arms, no, not even my sister. Somehow I found them to be cute and adorable and too fragile for me. So, personally and officially, Ilakkiya was the first baby I had to experiment as well as experience everything with. Well, there she was lying on the bed, drooling happily and laughingly trusting her mother completely. Blind Love that was!
As a responsible mother, I really had this job to find something safe, free from most harmful chemicals and definitely not tested on animals. No synthetic fragrances, obviously free from parabens and definitely no added preservatives. This list eliminated many products that was gifted for the little one. I had to even keep away those given by close family. They felt bad, but I knew they would understand. I was looking for simple products that understood babies and their world that resolved parents concerns.
I really didn’t know where to look. I googled a lot and tried to find about the ingredients. I was tired by the end of it all. I was relatively new on Instagram then. I scrolled through posts by friends and friends of friends. The continuous scrolling lead me to mama earth from one random Instagram post. Many participated in some giveaway and I was luckily tagged since I was a new mother then. Anyway, I took that opportunity to run a quick check about them.

I browsed Amazon for the list of mama earth products available with them. I found 200 ml of every product and honestly, I wasn’t ready to buy such big bottles of baby things. I scrolled to find this amazing mama earth Travel Essentials Kit for Babies with exactly what I needed at that moment. I was overjoyed. It was like a hit with me to find the right package.
The kit contained the following 40 ml vol.(each) products:
- Moisturizing Daily Lotion for Babies
- Deeply Nourishing Body Wash for Babies
- Gentle Cleansing Shampoo for Babies
- Soothing massage oil for Babies
On it’s very first use, the Body Wash didn’t irritate her eyes and that relieved me. It was a squeaky clean product which wasn’t really needed for a 5 month old. However, very small quantities were enough for her. The 40 ml lasted for for a month and a half(we bathed her thrice a week).
She loved the massages we gave her with the Massage Oil. The aroma was fantastic, it filled me with joy and it instantly relaxed me. I bet it was the right concoction for relaxing a tired mother.
The Cleansing Shampoo didn’t irritate her eyes, but she didn’t need much of it, so I used the remaining tube for my hair. It came by for two washes, but I felt it left my hair too dry.
The Moisturizing lotion helped her a lot during the rainy season. I went ahead and bought the bigger version of the same. More on that in another post soon.
Overall, I was impressed with the kit for the products it offered my little girl and me. The best part about these range of products was how it offered to help the baby as well as the mother. It can be used by both of us! That made me feel more safe and friendly towards their products.
In the coming posts, I will explain in detail what are the mama earth products I regularly buy for my little one and how it makes things easier for both of us.
