It's become more and more important for parents to know EXACTLY what products we are putting on and in our childrens' sensitive little bodies.
As a result, a growing number of parents across Australia and the world are deciding to opt for vegan-friendly baby products - also knowing the effect of what we eat and use has on the environment and the welfare of animals
Luckily, there are plenty of incredible products available - from body wash to baby oil and baby wipes to baby food - here's a list of some of our favourites.
