21 Bundles is a monthly subscription box for moms-to-be and new moms. It focuses on chemical-free goodies to take you from bump to baby, and then throughout your baby’s early months, for a healthy motherhood. This is the first month of the box’s rebrand as Healthiest Baby.

Healthiest Baby March 2018 Review
Previous boxes have come with an information card that offers some advice for the season, but this month is a little different. 21 Bundles is in the process of rebranding as Healthiest Baby, and this refresh aligns with their sister shop, Healthiest, in which you can buy items that you’ll find in your monthly boxes. This month, I received a card introducing a new affiliated feature, Healthiest Helper, a Chrome extension that helps you through choosing the healthiest options possible during your Amazon shopping experience. So cool!
Each box comes with a sticker that coordinates with your child’s age. If you’re currently pregnant, it reflects how far along you are in your pregnancy. This is a nice detail that I always enjoy since it makes for a personalized-feeling experience!
Silibib Silicone Baby Bib – Retail Value $11.95
We haven’t started solids yet, but the plan is to ease into baby led weaning at around 6 months (aka, SOON). I know that many babies start foods at around 4 and 5 months, though. We have done rice cereal a few times, so we tested this bib with one of those sessions. It’s super sturdy yet lightweight. The silicone material is thin but lays flat and its button-like closure is easy to adjust. It’s also super conveniently easy to clean in the sink. My only issue is that the flap seems quite small and shallow — I can’t imagine that it would catch a whole lot.
I don’t normally use powder with diaper changes, so the concept of this dusting powder was new to me. It’s talc-free, which is an obvious huge plus, and fragrance-free. It’s also marketed as an all-purpose powder that can be used by the whole family for things like sweat absorbency on the skin and dry shampoo. I found it to be a bit clumpy, and it takes some work to get it out of the holes of the dispenser topper. The silky texture of the powder is nice though! I don’t imagine that I’ll get much use of this product since our current diaper change routine doesn’t require extra steps, but it’ll be nice to have on hand for when baby gets older and may go longer between changes.
Nature’s Baby Organics Bubble Bath, Tangy Tangerine, 12 oz – Retail Value $11.04
More from Nature’s Baby Organics! The citrusy scent of this natural bubble bath is divine. The bubbles, however, are not very… bubbly. They form easily but don’t last. This is often the case with all natural products, so it doesn’t bother me — the payoff of not having any gross ingredients in my bath products is far more important and outweighs the fact that this gel isn’t very “lathery”.
Nature’s Baby Organics Face and Body Moisturizer, 2 oz – Buy an 8 oz bottle for $10.19
This fragrance-free lotion is terrific for calming dry, sensitive skin. It is gentle and soaks into skin quickly and effectively. This 2 oz bottle is small and great for tossing into a diaper bag or weekend bag. I prefer a pump with lotions, but it’s easy enough to squeeze the product out of the bottle’s topper.
Baby Blum Naturals Soothing Lotion Baby Wipes, 72 Wipes – Retail Value $5.20
I really love these wipes! They are much wetter than the Honest Company wipes that I’m used to and that extra wetness made them excellent at cleaning up some pretty big messes. Their lotion-like finish was really moisturizing on my baby’s bottom, and it made each wipe feel sort of substantial and sponge-y — soaked with liquid! I did find that these wipes stuck together a bit due to the extra wetness.
BeginAgain Green Ring – Retail Value $8.99
This all-natural teething toy is 100% compostable and made from corn starch rubber! The inner loop is made from supple Maplewood while the green outer ring is made from a cornstarch-based bio-resin that’s safe for children to chew. The outer ring can also be removed for cleaning and is dishwasher-safe. My little guy is in a weird spot where he’s almost certainly teething but is most interested in shoving his hands in his mouth over using toys. I introduced this ring to pretty lukewarm results. But I have a feeling that it will grow on him! After all, the ring shape makes it super easy to grasp, and he’s been loving picking it up and flailing it around.
This board book is adorable. The beautiful, colorful illustrations are engaging and do a great job at telling the story of a group of pals on a picnic. The text reads in sort of a slight rhyme-y, singsongy tone. Each page leads you through one of the pals’ contributions to their picnic experience, and I really loved the ‘sharing’ lesson that it ends on.
Dapple sample, 1.5 oz (1 load) – Buy a 50 oz bottle (32 loads) for $12.99
This detergent is gentle as its hypoallergenic and fragrance free. I did a load of baby clothes with this formula sample, and no complaints! I would definitely purchase the full size and appreciate the coupon.
Verdict: 21 Bundles, rebranded as Healthiest Baby, is always such a delight. I love its focus on all natural products and organic toys, and I’m excited that this month’s box was full of wonderful essentials to introduce to baby Orson. This month has an estimated value of approximately $58.88 which is pretty great considering the $39.99 box cost (plus $3.00 US shipping). This averages out to you paying approximately $7.36 per item for this particular box (but each ‘month’ box varies).
