"My friends loooove their gDiapers! The liners are flushable or compostable, and the outside is durable and cute." - Dana Christianson, Director of Membership Marketing

"The Kid Kanteen Sippy from Klean Kanteen is a product that I have really enjoyed for feeding toddlers. We really wanted to stay away from plastic and found these to be leak-proof and easy to clean. Other non-plastic sippy cups easily leak or involve multiple cleaning parts." - Kristin Brower, Development Manager

"Earth Mama Angel Baby (yup, that is the name of a company, and it is awesome.) has a bunch of products worth recommending. It's shampoo and body wash is gentle, versatile, and made with organic ingredients." - Beth Porter, Better Paper Project Director

"Baby Moso sells really cute, soft bamboo onesies that have beautiful illustrations of animals on them. The company was founded on the promise of giving away a onesie to women in need for every one sold, so it's really a double gift." - Eleanor Greene, Associate Editor

"Honest Company's diapers come in different patterns with lead-free ink. The Mini Diaper Cake is basically a bunch of diapers tastefully stacked together with a ribbon. It's a great way for parents to try out the product, and it doesn't even need to be wrapped." - Ilana Berger, Editorial Fellow

"Colorful, imaginative Haba block sets, sold by Hazelnut Kids and Bella Luna Toys , are always a big hit. They're made from sustainably harvested wood, and their bright colors come from nontoxic, water-based paints and finishes. They're also practically indestructible. After years of being played with (and chewed on!), our set still looks like new." - Tracy Fernandez Rysavy, Editor-in-Chief
