Is your baby’s clothing free from stuff that causes irritation, allergy or discomfort? Have you stopped to check if the materials used on those clothes are safe for your little ones? If you’re not sure, then you better find out what is organic baby clothing and why it is a must for your baby.

As parents, we want only the best for our children. Their health and safety are our biggest concern. We do everything we can to make their little world a happy and safe place to live in.

Unfortunately, everyday products they use like baby’s clothes, food and toys mostly contain certain levels of toxins and chemicals. The effect could really be very unpleasant for the baby and you.

Baby’s skin is very delicate and sensitive. Even a slight chemical or synthetic coloring present in baby clothes can harm the skin.  Some baby products contain dyes and chemicals and they pose a serious threat to babies’ skin and health, in general. These ingredients can cause skin irritation, allergies and any form of discomfort.

The best and simple solution to avoid getting these harmful ingredients from your kid’s clothing is to go organic. Babies deserve all-organic, environment-friendly baby products that are pure and non-toxic.

Organic baby’s clothing is made from organic ingredients that are grown and processed without the use of any harmful chemicals thus, making these organic baby products all-natural. The long term effect and benefits they bring to our children is all worth the price. It’s never a waste of money.  It’s a good investment especially if you’re planning to have more babies. You can hand them down to your next baby since it remains durable compared to the non-organic counterpart. 

Nowadays, more parents are making the switch to organic baby clothing. Have you thought of doing the same too?

Benefits of Organic Baby Clothing

Your baby’s clothes will be in contact with his skin all day. So it is important to pay more attention to the type of clothes you let him wear. The best baby clothing is made by organic materials. Organic baby clothing are not only gentle on skin, but also brings numerous advantages to their health, well-being and total development.

Organic clothing is generally beneficial because:

  • It is more durable than non-organic clothing.
  • It is gentler on baby’s sensitive skin
  • It helps cut down allergic reactions
  • It is soft
  • It protects the baby’ skin
  • It supports a healthier environment
  • It reduces the use of pesticide
  • It helps save you money
  • It is safer and sturdier

Choosing organic baby clothing is the first step towards natural living. Isn’t this what you want for your baby?

 

 

Providing Children a Gender Neutral Environment

 It wasn’t too long ago that it was all but expected for boy babies to be dressed in blue and girl babies to be dressed in pink. People felt put upon if you dressed your little one in, say, green, because then they couldn’t make a snap judgment about gender.

Our culture has a long history of making a lot of presumptions about gender. Men and women were expected to behave differently, and that included dressing differently. Boys were to love action figures and toy guns while girls were supposed to embrace dolls and toy kitchens.

Today’s world is a very different place. As we stress gender equality, we also undermine previous divisions between genders and stereotypes concerning them. The result is what is known as a gender neutral environment, and, more and more, it’s being embraced as a more socially healthy way of raising children.

Does that mean no frilly pink dresses for my daughter?

There’s a misconception that gender neutral means androgyny. Gender neutrality means children can express themselves without society dictating what is gender appropriate. So if your daughter (or son!) becomes a fan of tutus and lace, let them explore it.

Will it encourage homosexuality?

One of the traps society has fallen into is to equate gender with sexual orientation, and there’s simply no science to back it up. A girl wanting to dress in a traditionally masculine way indicates nothing more than just that: a choice of style. Millions of tomboys grow up to be heterosexual women. Clothing neither indicates nor determines sexual orientation.

Nor is this about transgenderism, although it does make it easier for a transgender child to understand who they are. This is about children defining themselves in their own terms rather than through stereotypes.

 

Will a child get teased?

The unfortunate fact is when people act outside social norms, they tend to face negative repercussions. Gender neutrality is becoming more and more common, meaning it looks less and less foreign, but there’s certainly the possibility of a child being teased.

But dealing with teasing is a part of growing up. Parents should emphasize that we shouldn’t base our decisions on the opinions of others. But if the child ultimately chooses more traditional fashion because of it, let them. Again, it’s about their choices.

This isn’t some fringe approach to child-raising. Millions of mainstream parents are now encouraging gender neutral environments. So are major businesses. In 2015, Target stopped dividing their children’s products into girl items and boy items. No longer does a girl have to enter an area the labels say are not for her in order to get an action figure. She doesn’t have to challenge a preconception to express herself.

Today, many styles really are unisex, even though they continue to officially be divided into boys and girls clothes. Let your child take point on choosing his own clothes (link to previous post on this topic), and you’ll be one step closer to raising a self-assured young boy or girl.

 

Being Smart about Toddlers and TV

Being Smart about Toddlers and TV

TV is an integral part of American life, and there’s plenty of debate as to how much is too much. The question is even more important when discussing children rather than adults, and it’s most important when discussing the very youngest children, toddlers.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends no TV for children under two, and no more than two hours/day for those older than 2.

The primary concern revolves around brain development. Children learn chiefly by exploring and experimenting, not by watching. Time in front of the TV is time your toddler is not learning through physical and social interactions.

There’s also physical health issues. Children spending many hours in front of the TV are much more likely to be overweight, which will only further encourage avoidance of physical activity.

Content is of prime importance. Children are impressionable. Exposure to bad behavior on TV can impress upon a child that such things are acceptable or even desirable. Consider these issues when shaping your toddler’s TV viewing:

    • Avoid programs containing sex, violence, and bad language is common sense to many parents, but also consider behavior such as smoking or drinking – things you do not want your child to think are cool. 

    • Avoid cartoons. While they may be acceptable for older kids, they aren’t for toddlers. The frantic activity can overstimulate them. In addition, very young children cannot differentiate between fantasy and reality. Cartoon violence is as genuine as real-life violence in their eyes, and many cartoons are surprisingly violent. Remember how many times Wild E. Coyote fell off cliffs and tried dropping anvils on the Road Runner. 

    • Find programs that encourage your child to repeat words, sing, or dance with the characters. This provides the physical interaction necessary for toddler to really grow.

Your own behavior can also play an important role.

  • Watch with your child. It promotes more interaction and can be quality time spent together. 

  • Encourage your child to ask questions and relate what you’re watching with his own life. 

  • Never think of the TV as a babysitter. That sets up the potential trap of turning the TV on every time you need a break from parenting and generally develops into longer and longer times the child is in front of the TV. 

  • Put the TV in an entertainment center with closable doors. A child is much less likely to want to watch it if he doesn’t see it. Instead, he’ll be more attracted to his toys. 

Television doesn’t have to be a bad thing, but is a tool which can be used properly or improperly. Use it to help your child grow rather than to just mindlessly entertain and you’re setting the stage for healthy development in these formative years.
