Organic Baby Products You Should Be Buying

May 5th, 2016

Organic Baby Products

As a new parent, you work hard to make sure your baby is safe, loved and well cared for. You wouldn’t dream of exposing the most vulnerable member of your family to toxins or harsh chemicals of any kind. Luckily, more than ever before you have a wealth of options for everything your baby needs. From organic baby food and feeding supplies to the gentlest skincare products, cleaners and more, you can give your baby a safer start. Here are the baby products that set the standard for safety and quality.

All-Natural Baby Food and Formula

Whether you are opting out of breastfeeding for personal or medical reasons, many healthy and happy babies spend their first year drinking infant formula. There are several organic infant formulas on the market to choose from. Avoid conventional formulas if you can — like junk food, they can contain trace amounts of toxins such as pesticides. Read soy-based formulas carefully, because non-organic soy products are usually genetically modified. Sugar, preservatives, palm oil, and hexane-extracted DHA and ARA are other problem ingredients. The bottom line? Breast milk is best, but organic formula is a close second — ask your pediatrician which is right for you.
Once your baby graduates to solids, it’s time to make your own food with organic fruits and vegetables. Invest in a Beaba Babycook, or the Baby Bullet, and you’ll never have to worry about feeding your child out of a jar. Making your own baby food is easy and fast, requires no special trips to the supermarket, and is the healthiest overall option. Stock up on baby food containers from Cuisinart and keep things simple.

Cloth Diapers

Disposable diapers may be convenient, but they’re also packed with chemicals designed to keep your baby dry. As if that’s not bad enough, think about the number of diapers you use in a day — and how much trash you’re making. Plus, a wet baby is an uncomfortable baby — and that may make yours ready to toilet train earlier.
Enter cloth diapers, the old fashioned remedy to disposable diaper conundrum. GroVia, The Honest Co. and bumGenius are just a few of the eco-friendly companies that are making cloth diapers easier. If you’re not into DIY cloth diapers — and honestly, who would blame you? — Quintessentially People can arrange a diaper service for your family. All of the benefits and none of the hassles make a diaper service a remarkably user-friendly solution.

Organic Cotton

When your baby cuddles up for naptime you want only the softest, coziest linens. Now it’s possible to buy organic cotton linens for standard and hard-to-fit cribs, plus portable cribs, strollers, car seats and more. Don’t forget to choose ultra-absorbent organic cotton towels, and dress with clothes made from — you guessed it — organic cotton. Nile Organics and BabySoy are a couple of the manufacturers who make high quality, organic cotton products.
