The Decision to Buy Organic Baby Clothing

Jun 13, 2008
As people become more aware of the dangers posed by chemicals laced throughout millions of products, there's been a monumental shift in our purchasing decisions. We have a broader appreciation for the potential risks of the products we consume, wear and use. The chemicals we once ignored pose a risk both to our health and the longevity of our environment. Today, millions of parents choose to cover their babies in organic clothing. Forsaking the baby clothes that put dangerous chemicals in such proximity to their children, many people have decided to go organic. Below, you'll learn about the benefits of buying organic baby clothes. We'll also provide you with the names of a few dependable baby clothing companies who produce the clothes that help protect your child.

Benefit To Your Baby Of Going Organic

Organic baby clothes offer a number of benefits. First, it's important to understand how traditional clothes are made. Most baby clothes are made from cotton. You may not realize that cotton is a crop. It's grown and harvested. Unfortunately, while it grows, it attracts a host of insects. To prevent the crops from being decimated, several pesticides are sprayed onto the cotton. Research has already revealed links between some of the chemicals used on the cotton and cancer (namely, propargite, dicofol and cyanazine).

Stop for a moment and think of your baby's skin. It's vulnerable. It hasn't developed the same thickness adults enjoy. When babies wear clothes made from cotton treated with pesticides, the chemicals used on the cotton crops rest on your baby's skin. By contrast, organic baby clothes are made from cotton that is grown on land untreated by pesticides. The chemicals used in conventional clothing never touch the organic cotton crops. As a result, there's no risk of dangerous, cancer-causing chemicals being absorbed through your child's skin.

Benefit To The Environment Of Going Organic

Because pesticides are so powerful, they have a long-lasting impact upon the environment. The effects are not limited to the fields upon which the cotton is grown. Though the pesticides are sprayed upon the crops, a devastating ripple effect that takes place. The chemicals in the pesticides seep into the soil. They contaminate the water. Ultimately, the ecosystem that depends upon the water becomes retarded. The wildlife consume the pesticides by drinking the water. Plants and trees are unable to sustain healthy growth.

These are the impacts caused by spraying pesticides on cotton crops. While organic baby clothes are safe for your baby and prevent their exposure to chemicals, they also reduce the amount of damage we cause to our environment.

Baby Clothing Companies To Consider

There are several well-regarded companies which produce organic baby clothes. They've devoted themselves to the protection of your children and the environment from dangerous pesticides. Some make general clothes while others specialize. For example, BabyLegs produces organic legwarmers while the Baby Bam Collection includes pajamas, onesies and even towels and washcloths. Pure Beginnings produces organic baby blankets, caps, booties and pants. Didymos manufactures organic baby slings. These companies strive to deliver organic baby clothes that are untouched by pesticides.

Buying Organic Baby Clothes

If you're concerned about having chemically-treated clothes on your baby's skin (and you should be), explore organic options. The companies mentioned above have a reputation for producing quality baby clothes from 100% organic cotton. Years ago, there weren't alternatives available. Times have changed. You can buy fashionable baby clothes that are safe for your baby's skin. They often cost less, last longer and give you the peace of mind that comes with knowing your baby is protected.
