The Rising Trend in All Natural Toys and Clothing

You have probably heard the terms “BPA” and “Phthalates” thrown around as big no-no’s when it comes to products and toys for babies and children. These are known as “everywhere chemicals” which is not a good thing. Found in a huge array of products, these chemicals have been suggested to contribute to various health issues – especially in infants and young children who are at a higher risk during their developmental years.

So it’s no surprise that parents are choosing to use all natural products for their children. With so many companies dedicated to providing healthy alternatives to everyday products, now more than ever it is easy to introduce natural and organic clothing and toys into your home.

Wooden Toys

There is definitely something nostalgic and classic about wooden toys. They are durable, timeless and are built to grow with your child. Because wooden toys do not come with catchy tunes or light-up buttons, they are less distracting and perfect for encouraging your little one’s imagination. Additionally, they are quiet – and any parent who has experienced noisy toys with no volume control will appreciate that.

Apart from the wonderfully amazing developmental benefits wooden toys have, wooden toys are safe. They do not break easily, contain small, choke-able parts and sharp edges. They are 100% natural so you know your child is not being exposed to harmful plastics or toxins.

Cost-wise, do not let the price stick-shock you. Imagine the financial benefit of purchasing one durable, long-lasting toy over many plastic toys that break easily and have to be replaced. Not to mention the constant purchasing of batteries.

All Natural Teethers

Teethers made of 100% natural rubber, unpainted wood, organic cotton or silicone are guaranteed to be free of harmful chemicals and toxins such as BPA, Phthalates, PVC and lead. While you may be more lenient about the products and materials touching your baby’s skin, it is important to be vigilant about what is being put in their mouths.

When a child is experiencing the teething stage, they are determined to place anything they can in their mouth to alleviate the discomfort – cell phones, pens, books, shoes. A child does not discriminate when it comes to chewing away the pain.

Natural and organic teethers are a great way to ensure that your child is placing a safe and health-conscious object in their mouth as their little baby teeth cut through. And, to the delight of your bank account, the prices of these items are very reasonable.

Organic Cotton Clothing

Organic cotton is a light and breathable fabric free of synthetic materials. It can be woven into varying weights of fabric including denim and corduroy, creating a strong and durable material.

The breathability of the fabric allows for proper air circulation which means that heat is not trapped and moisture is allowed to evaporate. Because of this, organic cotton retains less odor than synthetic materials, meaning that you do not have to wash it as often – saving water, energy and ensuring that the clothing lasts longer.
