Choosing Organic Materials for Your Baby Products

Should you buy ORGANIC?

"Organic" is a word that many parents are used to seeing on the products they buy. Many of us only know that organic foods cost more but what exactly does that mean when it comes to baby products?

 

What Does "Organic" Mean?

Once you get down to it, many of your baby's products are made up of a bunch of plants. From blankets and clothing to hair and skin products, plants are the base and most often main ingredient. When it comes to plants and products one of the main separators is if its "organic" or not. According to the USDA "[plants] can be called organic if it's certified to have grown on soil that had no prohibited substances applied for three years prior to harvest." Some of these "prohibited substances" include artificial fertilizer and harmful pesticides.

 

Organic Baby Products

Many parents wonder if it is important to check that the things they buy for their baby are organic and the answer is YES! Many of the pesticides used on non-organic materials are not only poisonous to bugs but also to humans. For new babies with delicate skin and systems this can be extremely hazardous. Many companies use pesticides to make their products cheaper and faster but may be making them less healthy for your baby in doing so. Remember these products will be used on or right next to your baby's skin.  

Many synthetic materials commonly used in baby clothing and blankets are sprayed or "treated" with agents used to make them last longer or more durable. These synthetic materials have not been found to outperform or last longer than organic materials by parents. In fact, parents for generations have been happy with their organic materials. According to a study done by moms, Organic cotton lasts about 100 washes without breaking down, while conventional cotton can start breaking down after 10 to 20 washes. That means you get more use out of organic cotton products!

When it comes to hair and skin products it is very important for parents to look for organic options. Non-organic shampoos and soaps can contain fragrances and parabens which can both be harmful for sensitive baby skin. Many companies are not required to list full ingredients for fragrances added to their products making it hard to stay clear or avoid allergies. Organic shampoos and soaps only use non-toxic ingredients that have been proven to be safe for your baby.

"Cotton accounts for only 2.4 percent of crop land worldwide, but 24 percent of global insecticide sales and 11 percent of global pesticide sales are used on cotton."
