Organic Clothes for a Baby

Jun 1, 2008
More and more parents today are aware of what harm chemicals can do to their young child's skin. This is probably one of the reasons why so many are now actually looking to spend more money on buying organic baby clothes.

But as well as protecting our babies skin buying organic clothes is proving better for those in developing countries. On average around 20,000 people die each year from pesticide poisoning in this countries especially those who work in cotton farming. But along with saving lives, buying organically made clothes is going to save the planet as well.

What is important to note is that the skin of a child is far more porous than that of an adult. So any chemicals that are on the clothes they wear can be far more easily and readily absorbed by their bodies. So you may not realize this but the clothes your child is wearing could be doing them more harm than good.

Yet organic clothing is made from cotton, which has been grown using all natural processes, and no chemicals have been in contact with it. But just because the price of this type of clothing is higher than others do not be put off purchasing it. This type of clothing is also far more comfortable to wear and because no chemicals have been in contact with it the material is much stronger and lasts longer.

The cotton that is grown organically uses systems that are biologically based and does not rely on any chemicals whatsoever. If the cotton plants become infected with pests these are then removed using either other insects, which will eat the pests, or organic pesticides. Plus once the cotton is ready to be harvested you will find that most is picked by hand rather than through the use of machinery again helping to save the environment.

When you are buying any organic baby clothes before making your purchase read the labels and descriptions carefully. Only purchase items which clearly state on them that they have been made using 100% certified organic cotton. Plus look carefully at what coloring systems have been used to dye the material. Organic clothes manufacturers only use natural inks and dyes to provide the vibrant colors on their materials at any time and at no stage should they have come into contact with chemicals such as bleach.

Also because the cotton used in organic clothes is far softer than the cotton that is grown using traditional methods, it is less likely to cause any kinds of skin allergies or sensitivities in a child. So the chances of them suffering from skin problems or other health issues are greatly reduced.

It is for the reasons we have shown above that many more parents are preferring to buy organic baby clothes today. Therefore if you are interested in buying such items for your child then a quick search of the internet will provide you with a list of sites that offer such clothes at pretty reasonable prices.
