An organic baby is a happy baby
No, don’t worry… I’m not pregnant nor will I be for a long time (I don’t even know where I’m going to live in a year!). However, if I was about to have a baby, these products would be at the top of my list. So often I am shocked by what people feed and put on their children. I’ve mentioned the importance of organic clothing before and that is even more important when it comes to tiny bodies that are extra sensitive. Luckily, there are many options when it comes to purchasing healthy baby products these days. I was overwhelmed with the variety I found when putting this post together. I was going to put a bit of everything that babies need, but decided to cut down and my post still looks like a kid’s playroom!
A couple years ago, I read that the number one bestselling children’s toy in the US at that time had way more than the safe amount of lead. Kids were getting poisoned by their toys! No need to worry with these toys. Sophie the Giraffe is currently the best-selling baby product on Amazon.com and she’s completely natural. Your child can learn the alphabet in a variety of languages thanks to these beautiful handmade blocks from Uncle Goose Toys. These wooden worms from Naef are sure to keep a child entertained and safe.
Did you know that an estimated “27.4 billion disposable diapers are used each year in the U.S. (according to the EPA, that translates into more than 3.4 million tons of waste dumped into landfills) and that producing those diapers also consumes huge amounts of petroleum, chlorine, wood pulp and water.” [Source: Time] Reusable diapers like these super cute ones from Sckoon will be better for your baby and the Earth.
Other than food, this is the area that scares me the most, even for adults. Most baby bath products and lotions are full of chemicals and can lead to serious health problems in the future. Little Twig has a variety of products available that are safe for babies, the world, and animals.
Phew! That’s all for now on this baby round-up, folks! If you liked it, let me know. It took a lot of time and searching, but it was fun. I hope that, if you haven’t learned something new, you at least got some pretty things to look at and were able to say “aww!” a couple times.
