Does Organic Baby Clothing Really Make a Difference?

When a baby is born, they are instantly bombarded with environmental chemicals. Formaldehydes, classified as a probable human carcinogen, are used in building materials to textiles. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are present in wood and laminated furniture, shelving, most paints (that are not low VOC) and wall covers. Heck, just bringing a baby home from the hospital exposes them to air pollutants. So, the question is, is Organic Baby Clothing really worth it? We answer with a resounding, Yes.

Organic clothing is particularly important for infants and children, as their bodies are more sensitive to the health risks posed from chemicals and pesticides. Premature babies are even more sensitive, as their lungs may not be at full capacity yet.

Also, by purchasing your organic tot organic cotton baby clothes, you are reducing the environmental impact of cotton growing. Non-organic cotton crops use 25% of all insecticides globally. Yuck!

Not only are your protecting your little one, but you're protecting cotton workers as well. The EPA rates 7 of the top 15 pesticides used on U.S. cotton crops as potential or known human carcinogens.

Any cotton lover knows how durable it is as well. So, when your baby outgrows their organic clothes, why not pass it on to another new mom? She will be sure to appreciate it, and you're reusing is the best way to conserve

Are Organic Baby Clothes expensive?
