Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Eco Friendly baby products that prevent trips to the doctor? Well the answer to this is way simpler than you might think. Have noticed that your newborn has irritataed areas on his or her skin? Lots of time this is not due to some tropical desease as many parents fear but simply caused by the clothes they wear.

Most of the time, as parents we gravitate to cotton to provide our babies with the most comfort that we can. What many parents do not know is that until 1995, 25% of all of the worlds insecticide and 10% of all pesticides was being used by the cotton industry. Another thing that is not very well known is that when sleeping, our bodies are five times more sensitive to environmental influences than when we are awake. What that means is that while your child sleeps they are in danger, especially if they are dressed in some chemicallly loaded material. How many hours a day does your child sleep?

Chemical Free Cotton

Eco friendly, chemical free and sustainable cotton means the absense of insecticides and pesticides. So when shopping for your bundle of joy, do not just shop cotton, shop chemical free cotton. As time goes by it is easier to get this cotton since growers are increasingly sacrificing profit to provide a product that contributes to the quality of you and your baby'e life.

Bamboo

This material is even better than cotton and because of this is being used in more and more applications due to its great attributes. Some of the benefits of bamboo are:

  • It grows as much as four feet per day without the help of pesticides, insecticide or fertilizers
  • Clothing is made from the pulp which is easier to dye, removing the need to use harsh chemicals in the dying process.
  • Bamboo grows faster, easier, is lighter, easier to process, softer, feels closer to silk or cashmere and dries in half the time as cotton.
  • Bamboo provides 35% more oxygen than a stand of trees the same size.
  • It also attracts moisture from the skin which makes it a great work and play material for year round wear.

Another great thing about bamboo is that it is totally bio-degradable and that is a great attribute for an eco baby product.

All of the above attributes of the eco friendly or chemical free cotton and the bamboo all converts to less trips to the doctor due to skin rashes and other irritation. There are many different options available when purchasing eco baby products for your baby.
