Sustainable and Organic Baby Products – Helping Save The Planet

When you bring your beautiful bundle of joy in to this world you will naturally want the best that money can give.  In the modern world, however, we also realise that sustainable and organic baby products is not only best for your baby, but it is also taking that importanant step towards helping the planet.

So let’s do it, let’s give them the best start in life!

Organic Baby Food – What To Look For

There are so many products on the market for us to choose from that sometimes we can feel a little overwhelmed, but regardless of the brand be safe in the knowledge that;

Organic standards are certified by law so rest assured that by choosing organic the ingredients will have to meet strict legal requirements.

Organic food doesn’t contain any artificial colourings, flavourings or sweeteners, hydrogenated fats or GM ingredients and it contains fewer pesticide residues.

Organic food products can reduce any potential risk that developing babies may be vulnerable too.

Organic foods have been found to be nutritionally different, with higher key antioxidants beneficial omega-3 fatty acids.

What more could you ask for?  It tastes better and is healtheir for your child.

Can Silicone Baby Products Be Sustainable?

Yes, they sure can be, in fact you may just be surprise at how many amazing products there are out there!  You can buy your baby a dummy, teething ring, cutlery and even breast pumps.  There really is so much choice out there, and my aim is to help you realise that silicone is a fantastic choice.

Silicone is formed from a chemical reaction to transform silica (sand) using 3 natural elements – oxygen, carbon and hydrogen.

Not only are the byproducts harmless, they are also useful to the environment, and even more amazingly the life-cycle of silicone ends exactly where is began when the discarded products deteriorate back into sand. Brilliant, isn’t it?

Silicone products are now a friend to the planet and they have played a major role in our continuing efforts to make our lifestyles more sustainable.  It is eco-friendly and has a long life of reusability, thus reducing our reliance on fossil fuels, whilst playing a vital role in modern advancements toward sustainability.

FACT- A recent study determined that the average use of silicone products saved approximately nine times the greenhouse gases it required to manufacture them!

Feel confident in your purchase of silicone products, they are amazing!

Re-usable or Biodegradable nappies?

Let’s face it, we would all love to use disposable nappies, but for the eco conscious folk like us there is an alternative (albeit a dirtier one).

Reusable nappies have many different names, such as washable nappies, cloth nappies or real nappies.  Thankfully they have evolved over the years to become much easier to use than they were ‘back in the day’ and are a now becoimg a popular choice for eco-conscious parents.  They are no longer boring and now come in range of beautiful colours and soft fabrics.  Another benefit is that they are just as easy too change as disposable nappies, who would have thought?!

However, the main thing that worried me, and probably worries you, is the upfront cost.  Although over time reusable nappies work out cheaper than disposables, you will be paying more initially.  To start with you will probably need around 16-24 nappies in total (especially in the first few months) but the costs will be lower overall in comparison to disposable nappies. It is estimated that it may cost around £80 for the cheapest brand of reusable nappiest, and then you have to factor in the costsof  around £1 a week to wash them.  If you are planning on having more than one child then the savings will be even greater if the nappies are used again.

There is one more alternative though – biodegradable nappies.  It’s fantastic that we now have that choice however we must also take in to account that the manufacturing process and the time for them breaking down will probably make re-usable nappies a better choice.  But hey, it’s a fantastic option as we are not all keen on using washable nappies.

With all this in mind you should feel confident about taking the plunge and using these fantastic eco-friendly products, weather it be washable or biodegradable ones.

What Other Sustainable Products Are There?

You will be amazed, just as I was, with all the different types of products to choose from.  From strollers to playmats, from tableware to clothes – there really is a massive selection.

Most companies pride themselves on being eco-friendly and are producing fabulous products for us all to enjoy.  Some stroller frames are constructed entirely from recycled plastic and the fabrics from recycled drinking bottles. Amazing!  Even the footmuff and rain covers can be made from green materials.

Organic clothing?  No problem!  You should consider organic cotton clothing for your baby, and there are lots of reasons why.  The main reason is that it means the cotton isn’t treated with pesticides and other toxins that are harmful to people and the planet, especially our little delicate babies.  Organic cotton can also be super soft and snug, what’s not to like?

What about baby tableware?  We have already spoken about silicone alternatives, but what if you had some delicious organic produce prepared and you wanted another choice of tableware to serve it on? Luckily you can choose organic bamboo, again free from BPA, PVC, lead, and Phthalates.

With so many choices you really can’t go wrong.

Conclusion

It is fortunate that we now have so many choices on the market to help us achieve our aim of being eco-concious, and it really does make our choice to be eco-friendly much easier.  Many of these products are designed so well that it just adds to the overall benefits already there, such as being sustainable, organic and eco-friendly.  The small extra cost for buying such goods are worth it in the long run.  Not only are we protecting our baby, but we are protecting their planet and teaching them a valuable life lesson of being concious about our delicate environment.

About Organic Baby

 

Hello and welcome to My Organic Baby website.  Children are the most important responsibility we will ever have in our lives.  As parents we want the safest and most natural products we can buy which can help our little precious bundles of joy thrive!

In this time of climate change we are quite rightly focused on using natural products that are resuable and sustaniable for the planet, or at the very least are able to be recycled, after all isn’t natural best?

My goal is to give parents an insight in to products that are natural, safe, and help towards overall sustainability. Through this site I hope to give your handy tips and product reviews that can help you make the right choice for your precious baby.

A LITTLE STORY ABOUT ME

As a mother of two beautiful children I remember the sheer mass of products available buy.  Where did I start?

Nappies, breast feeding products, baby wipes and car seats are just a few things that parents spend hours, even days, of their life researching, I know I did!  Organic food is also high on most parents priority list.

I wanted natural products that would be sustainable, so I researched re-usable nappies, baby wipes with only natural products (wait, what about cotton balls and water?) or car seats that were safe, but made in an environmentally friendly way.  My head was constantly filled with thinking about buying only the best, but also the most natural.

Most of you will have noticed that the cost of products rise as soon as you mention ‘organic’ or ‘re-usable’ and I remember thinking that there was no way I could afford everything that I wanted!

MY GOAL

Well, it’s always good to have a goal, right?  Mine is that this site will give your all the information you need to make the best natural choices for you and your baby without taking away the luxury of time or having a negative impact on our planet.  Organic food as well as sustainable and renewable products are just some of the products I will be reviewing.

As I mentioned earlier, the price of products can be scary, but quality isn’t always reflected in the price of goods.  I’m here to help! My reviews will help you make the most informed choice that you can, and hopefully will save you a few pennies along the way.

 

If your ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help your out.

All the best,

Organic Baby
