The Case For Natural Baby Clothes

Jan 30, 2008
Nobody likes the thought of exposing their baby to chemicals or cancer-causing materials, or anything else that could harm them. The reality is that we live in a "chemical world" where nearly everything we touch, eat, and even the air we breathe have been affected by chemicals and synthetic materials that have been proven to be harmful to our health. Do you think you can keep your baby from being exposed to cancer causing materials? If so, then think again.

From the pots and pans you cook with, to your household cleaners and "air fresheners", many of the things you use day to day contain dangerous chemicals to which prolonged exposure can be deadly. From the mold hiding under your kitchen sink to the plastics that 99% of your baby's toys are made of, there are countless opportunities for your child to be exposed to substances and chemical agents that are known to cause cancer and numerous other serious health complications.

Most people don't realize the amount of exposure that their kids are subject to. Many people think that just because their kids are young and eat a healthy diet, they are less likely to have any considerable chemical build up in their systems. This just isn't true. Consider the following:

- Kids are smaller, and their immune systems aren't as strong. It takes LESS exposure for a chemical to negatively affect your child than it does for it to affect you.

- Many plastics contain known carcinogens (cancer-causing agents), and our kids' world is literally made of plastic. Whether it's their spoons or their bottles (and bottle liners), or the toys, teething rings, plates, cups, and even baby gates... babies and small children are surrounded by plastic almost 24/7.

- In lab tests, kids are often shown to have HIGHER levels of foreign chemicals in their bodies than adults.

Here's the bottom line: your kids are at risk of being exposed to some pretty nasty stuff. Chances are, they already have been. Some of it can't be avoided in today's world, but the things that we CAN do something about, we should.

This is where organic goods come in to play. More and more items that you use regularly are available in organic, people safe, environmentally safe forms. Many foods (even frozen dinners), household cleaners, personal care items, and even clothes can be purchased in "organic", all natural form. When something is organic, it means that no chemicals, pesticides, or unnatural substances of any kind have been used to produce it (at any point in the process).

For clothes, this means that the cotton used to create the clothes is organic. It has not been polluted with dangerous chemicals and pesticides! This is important because, according to statistics, cotton receives more pesticides (in percentage points) than any other single crop in the United States.

There are countless forces working against us... in the air, and in nearly everything we eat and touch. It only makes sense that our first line of defense should be the clothes that we wear every day.

If there were no choices, then the lack of action on the part of parents in regards to their kids' clothes would be understandable. But in today's world, there ARE choices. Even if you don't have a store or boutique nearby the offers natural baby clothes, you have PLENTY of choices for online shopping that often have seasonal deals and specials... so even the prices isn't as much of an issue.

Are natural baby clothes more expensive? Yes, unfortunately they are. Just in case there is any question, the health of your child is worth it!! It really isn't worth the risk to save a few dollars (or even a few hundred dollars) now and expose your kids to the "God-knows-what" that could be harmful or potentially fatal in the future. In a world where there are so many "enemies", your kids clothes can be just one more friend in your corner--and one more thing that you don't have to worry about.
