Benefits of Buying Organic Baby Clothes


Once blessed with the responsibility of nurturing a precious new life, it is natural that many new mothers start exploring the benefits of organic food, natural care products and organic baby clothes. I’ve compiled a list some of the benefits of choosing organic materials for your baby (in particular, cotton) below, but I’d like to make a little something clear first. I know for most of us, it is just not realistic to be able to afford to exclusively dress our babies in organic clothes. Like any of my advice geared at living a more natural and sustainable life…baby steps are the way to go. Small changes can make a big difference!

I first learned about alternative menstrual products around 2006. When I started using cloth pads at the end of 2007, my life was changed! Excruciating (sometimes to the point of near fainting) cramping for three - four days turned into one day of manageable cramping. Heavy, long periods turned into moderate, shorter periods. This past July I first tried a menstrual cup. Best.Thing.Ever. Reusable menstrual products do not contain any chemicals that disposable products contain, such as chlorine or dioxin. They are healthier for you and the environment, and last many years; you may even forget you have your period!
