Like many moms, I was not originally sold on the idea of dressing my baby in organic clothing. With all the sales that take place every day with mainstream brands, why spend more for organic clothing for babies?
The first thing that prompted me to look into organic cotton infant clothing is when my younger son, Trajan, developed very bad cases of skin allergy and irritation. Later on, I found that:
- Formaldehyde is generally used to keep clothing look new and fresh. The US National Toxicology Program described formaldehyde as "known to be a human carcinogen”! Organic clothes are free of formaldehyde.
- 7 of the top 15 pesticides used on conventionally grown cotton crops in the United States have been classified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as potential or known carcinogens.
I also learned that babies’ skin is less oily and much thinner than adults’, which in turn makes it more porous and less shielded against toxins.
By spending a few more dollars, I am protecting my babies against some of the worst toxins known to man, not to mention providing them a greener environment in their future.
After purchasing several organic cotton baby onesies and footies for my son, I also noticed that those organic pieces lasted longer and looked like new after several washes. This is because organic newborn clothing is minimally processed (has not gone through all the chemical beating) and is usually produced in small batches and thus is of much higher workmanship. So what is good for my baby also turned out to be a sound financial decision!!!
