Baby Shower Bash #17: Chotobaby Review and Giveaway! (US ONLY)



As many of you know, I am always on the lookout for natural items for my home and family. I feel like I have to be one of the Earth Savers out there and a big part of that is using natural products. I was thrilled when I found out I would have the opportunity to work with the fabulous Chotobaby.

What is Chotobaby? An adorable Canadian company run by Marcia Chotowetz(hence the Choto in Chotobaby). The company all came about when she had her first baby and was looking all over for unique and stylish baby products. Unable to find just the right products for her, she decided to import some hip diaper bags and then began supplying stores across Canada! She had always wanted her own business and so, here they are today, an exclusive distributor of chic mommy and baby gear!

Chotobaby carries a huge variety of gorgeous baby items. Let me show you a few of my must haves!



This is the Moby Born Free baby carrier and they sell it for $65.99! So adorable.




The Innobaby Keeping Fresh Glass 2 Pack in Yellow and Green for $15.99.
"Innobaby’s Keepin’ Fresh™ Glass is 100% airtight, 100% leakproof, oven-, freezer-, and microwave- safe baby food storage solution."




The Milk Saver by Milkies! I have always wanted one of these and I hope to get one with my third. They sell this wonderful item for $36.99.




This is the Eden's Carry All Tote and it sells for $89.99~ I am in love with this!


They also carry a wide variety of maternity apparel!

For review I was sent the Gaia Baby Starter Kit and Gaia Bamboo Baby Wipes. These are just 2 of the MANY Gaia items available in their Skincare section.

I had never heard of Gaia baby products before, but I am open to trying any baby product that is natural and Organic. I am so incredibly thrilled that I found this amazing company and it's all thanks to Chotobaby!

The Gaia Baby Starter Kit sells for $25.99 and contains the following:
- 50 ml Baby Massage Oil
- 50 ml Skin Soothing Lotion
- 50 ml Baby Moisturizer
- 50 ml Baby Shampoo
- 50 ml Bath and Body Wash

I adore all 4 out of 5 that we have tried. I have yet to try out the Skin Soothing Lotion, but I guess it's a good thing we haven't had any redness or irritation yet. My kids do tend to get dry skin in the winter, so we may get a chance to try it then.

The massage oil smells heavenly and is perfect to rub your baby down with after a bath. It contains Sweet Almond Oil to protect and nourish baby's skin. Organic Lavender and Chamomile help to calm and relax baby. My Violet has always loved massage time and now I have a safe oil to rub all over her!

The Baby Moisturizer contains Organic Shea Butter and Wheat Germ Oil to keep your baby's skin extra soft. This lotion has lavender in it for a subtle and calming scent. I think this will rock for when I am pregnant as well. It would work perfect to rub all over a giant belly.

The Baby Shampoo is probably my favorite product. It works like a charm and has Organic Sweet Orange. The Sweet Orange not only cleanses without irritation, but it smells yummy! Organic Chamomile makes hair soft and shiny.

Last in the Baby Starter Kit is the Bath and Body Wash. This is also a big favorite with us. It contains Organic Sweet Orange, Chamomile and Lavender to gently cleanse and relax baby!

Each bottle contains 50 ml of product and are perfect for the new mom looking to go eco.





I was also sent the Gaia Natural Baby Bamboo Baby Wipes to try out! I thought it was so sweet of them to send me two different products to test drive. Let me tell you, these are the softest, most luxurious wipes ever to grace my baby's butt(besides cloth ones!). The Gaia Bamboo Baby wipes come in a package of 80 for $6.99. I actually have tended to keep these in my diaper bag to wipe down hand and face catastrophes, and also to have on hand for butts if I run out of cloth wipes. I think the price is great for a natural and safe baby wipe and they last a long time if you use them occasionally like I do. I adore that these wipes are free of alcohol, petrochemicals, soap, sulphates and paraben preservatives. I know if I use these on my baby's butt and she has a mild rash, it wont burn.

I would recommend these products to any of my Mommy friends out there. Head over to Chotobaby to pick some up for yourself!

  1. I love the Bounce-a-Bye Baby ball. What a good idea! My baby loves to be bounced, especially in the evening, but my legs and arms get tired after awhile. This would be great!
