A baby’s skin is much more delicate than yours. It is thinner and more porous, which means it easily absorbs things it comes into contact with. This is why babies and toddlers are prone to rashes and allergies. Unlike adults, their bodies aren’t that capable of breaking down and eliminating toxins.
Since clothing directly touches your baby’s skin it can help reduce your baby’s skin becoming irritated when you buy organic baby clothes. This is because they are free of harmful chemicals found on synthetic materials and cotton pesticides used in non-organic clothing.
Organic cotton is free of the chemicals that could be sitting next to your baby’s skin giving you peace of mind and is particularly important when buying clothes for babies with eczema or other skin conditions.
Organic cotton wicks away moisture and ventilates cool so your little one is less likely to bathe in sweat or feel too hot and its weave will also help them retain warmth in the cooler winter months.
It’s the perfect material as its unique properties adapt really well to different climates helping your baby maintain a healthy temperature!
The cost of buying baby clothes can really add up and with how often you have to wash them they can quickly become shabby.
With organic cotton though you will get about 100 washes before it begins breaking down, while conventional cotton can start breaking down after 10 to 20 washes!
Because organic baby clothes are so durable it makes your price per wear much cheaper than traditional baby clothes as organic ones will give you a lot more mileage.
(And because they last five times more washes than non-organic, you can hand them down in great condition... like with these two cheeky chappies)
Organic baby clothes benefit the environment as there is no pesticide runoff so there is no damage to habitats or groundwater supplies.
You’re also helping support a healthy and sustainable supply chain as employees of the organic companies enjoy a healthier working environment as they are not exposed to harmful chemicals.
