I didn’t even know this stuff existed until I went to register for baby stuff. Organic slings, organic pajamas, organic cloth, organic sheets, organic diapers, organic shampoo, organic play mats, organic blankets, organic baby towels, organic room decorations?? The list goes on… there are more and more products being sold as ” natural” or ” organic.” Does this stuff really matter? Will your child be healthier if he/she is raised with natural products, organic toys, organic socks?
I mean, really?
I question this myself because I guess I haven’t decided how I feel about it. I’m using cloth diapers because they are ” greener” and ” healthier” and have less chemicals in them (and saving me money, but that’s another issue.) I will feed my children organic and natural foods because I believe it is healthier. I even registered for a baby play mat that has the least amount of chemicals in it. Now that I think about it, I’m even hoping to get the natural/organic baby wash because it has less chemicals in it.
Gosh, I didn’t realize I was trying to be so “green” with my little one!
Infants and toddlers are much more susceptible to dangerous chemicals and toxins than adults are, so it would make sense that if you are going to buy natural prodcuts- you use them for your youngest.
I don’t believe there have been any studies done that prove that going organic or natural with your little one makes them much healthier.
What do you think? Is it worth the money to buy organic products for your child(ren)?
