The decision to choose organic baby stuff for your infant must go beyond following a simple fad. Why? Because, honestly, it tends to
cost more. So why are millions of mothers choosing to go green for their babies? (Hint: it goes beyond global warming...)
Cotton is one of the most intensively-treated crops in the world. According to the Sustainable Cotton Project in California, about a third of a pound of chemicals (pesticides, fertilizer, processing chemicals,
and dyes) are used to make ONE cotton t-shirt.
These chemicals adhere to the cotton fibers and then rub against your infant's skin. Because organic cotton doesn't have
those chemicals, it has been known to help infants with skin issues, particularly eczema.
Organic cotton is grown, harvested, and treated using all-natural products that are safe for the children wearing them, people making them, and families
living around them.
Standard crib bedding is made with a 50/50 blend of non-organic
cotton and polyester (a petrochemical blend). Organic cotton breathes better than the 50/50 blends and is reported to be softer to sleep in.
Choosing organic baby products such as crib mattresses, combined with non-toxic paint and furniture
can also minimize the amount of toxins inhaled during sleep time and improve the overall air quality of your baby's home and nursery. Using certified organic baby clothing, food and skin care products can also reduce the amount of toxins your baby is exposed to while their immune system is still developing.
Many mothers feel the extra price for organic baby stuff is worth avoiding the cancer-causing chemicals used in traditional cotton clothing.
GiggleOutfitter has a large array of organic baby stuff, including 100% organic cotton clothing. Organic baby doesn't always have to be white!
Designer Kate Quinn uses natural dyes to create soft colors and unique patterns.
The "Sherpa Baby Bunting" by Kate Quinn (shown here) is a personal favorite. The fur lining and fold-over
gloves and booties can withstand even a Wisconsin winter!
