COSTA MESA — When Giselle Baturay decided to give all-natural mothering a try with her first child almost six years ago, there was no one-stop-shop that met her needs.
"I wanted to choose products that were more natural, that would increase her imagination, and were safe for her," Baturay said of her daughter, Lora, who is now 5.
Baturay opened Granola Babies, which caters to "everything you need for your natural baby," on Newport Boulevard in Costa Mesa in August.
For years, Baturay sold cloth diapers and baby carries, organic soaps, wooden toys and other products online. She reviewed the products after having used them with Lora and her two younger children, Okhan and Euren.
Her 750-square-foot shop, which houses more than 100 brands — 15 of which are reusable cloth diapers alone — Baturay's shop has the right product with the right fit for every parent and baby, she said.
