Why organic baby products are better for your baby's health ?

When a new baby comes into the family, it is important to surround the baby with all - natural baby bedding.

Many families are concerned about the amount of chemicals in our everyday lives. Since babies sleep nearly half of the day, it only makes sense to make sure they are sleeping in a safe environment. While we might not be able to remove all the chemicals our family is exposed to, we can reduce the amount in the home.

There is a nice variety of organic baby products. You can find blankets, sheets, swaddling blankets - pretty much the same selection you would have with other baby bedding options. They even come in a wide variety of colors, not just neutral tones.

Having organic baby products is better for your baby's health - as opposed to the 50/50 non-organic cotton and polyester blend that is made from a petrochemical. These chemicals can irritate the tender newborn skin.

Another chemical found in bedding and other fabrics is the fire-retardant chemical PBDE. This chemical is sprayed on to the product, so it gets into the environment quicker than other chemicals.

Some people have allergic reactions to chemicals in household goods.

By reducing the amount of chemicals your family is exposed to, it will reduce the risk of allergic reactions.

If you check with your local baby specialty store, they may have a limited selection of organic baby products. There are several websites where you can purchase organic baby products. Many of them specialize in organic crib mattress and baby blankets, but some carry bedding for larger beds as well. The price is very comparable to other bedding sets.
