Buying Organic - A Natural Choice for Baby Clothing

By: Chris Robertson

So, you know someone who is having a baby and you have been invited to a baby shower or two. You would like to purchase items for the baby that will last, yet be relatively inexpensive, durable, be something they will use, and even pass down to other siblings as they come along. You are concerned about the environment, so you'd prefer to buy items that were produced to be as easy on the environment as possible. If so, perhaps you should take a look at all the cute funny onesies, bodysuits, and T-shirts made of organic cotton that are available for newborns and small children.

Most of us are concerned about the environment these days, so starting a newborn baby off in organic baby clothes seems totally natural. Along with organic clothing, some pediatricians suggest feeding a baby only certified organic foods until the age of three years. Because they are smaller, babies' bodies absorb more pesticides and other chemicals per pound of body weight than adults. Those nasty toxins tend to remain in their bodies longer, and that's not good. The problem is that organic products are more expensive because of the process of getting them certified, plus fewer organic units are produced and so they are more difficult to find and acquire. However, if more people request organic goods, more will be produced, and the prices will come down. And that's a good thing. So do your part and buy organic!

Certified organic cotton is harvested from plants that are not genetically modified, so no fertilizers, antibiotics, growth hormones, additives or pesticides are used in the growing process of the plants. What this means is that when growing cotton plants organically, there are no chemicals used that pollute the air, soil, and water. In addition to cotton, other certified organic fibers that can be made into clothing are wool, hemp, bamboo, and soy.

Residual chemicals can irritate human skin, so by wearing organic cotton clothing there's less chance of a baby encountering chemical-induced irritations. Garments made of certified organic cotton are unbelievably soft and feel fabulous on your skin, so you know a baby will love the feel, too! And organic cotton material only gets softer with each washing, so you can feel safe in knowing the garment will remain comfortable.

Organic materials can (and should) be used to make baby toys as well. Non-toxic stuffing is used inside these toys, as well as non-toxic paints and dyes. Soft, squishy cloth stuffed toys make great gifts for newborn babies because there's nothing on them that can hurt them. They can keep them close and feel more secure. A big, soft teddy bear, or puppy dog, or even a stuffed humpty dumpty doll can turn out to be a friend for many years to come, and can even be passed down to future generations.

Deciding on what to purchase for a baby shower can be frustrating and time consuming, but it can also be a lot of fun. Along with cute funny onesies and T-shirts, there are a lot of fun baby clothes nursery decorations, and toys available. As for clothing, you can buy classic styles and colors, or cute funny onesies, or playful designs that suit the hobbies or interests of the baby's family. From newborn preemie baby clothes to military baby clothes, there is something available for every baby.
