Organic baby clothes are a hot item with both large and small retailers these days. They're so hot, in fact, that -giants now carry a line of organic baby clothing items in their stores.
Though the organic baby clothes trend is extremely popular with apparel makers and retailers, many parents are confused because they simply do not understand how the term organic relates to fiber and baby clothes. Parents often believe that the term is simply made up to con them into believing there's something special about the baby clothes when there probably isn't. Many of them will pass on buying organic baby clothes, blankets, and such--and thus miss the many benefits that their children could get from wearing them.
So, when looking at organic cotton or wool baby clothes it's good to have some background. For example, organic cotton is grown abundantly in India under strict regulations and in fields that are chemical-free. Organic means that something is grown in a chemical-free environment. Organic cotton growers take that further by ensuring that the fields have no chemicals or pesticides of any type used for a minimum of three years. This is heavily regulated and is highly watched to ensure that organic cotton and certified organic wool is exactly what it claims to be.
By comparison, ordinary cotton is grown in places that are not as particular about where the cotton is grown. It is also grown using high levels of pesticides and chemicals that is imbibed by the cotton as it grows. As there are far fewer restrictions in place for conventionally grown cotton, there is no way of knowing just how much chemical pesticides is really being used.
These pesticides are generally petroleum-based and have many serious side effects. These chemicals do stay in the cotton long after it is harvested. Similar is the case with wool and silk. The chemicals left in the fiber are thought by experts to have the potential cause everything from allergic reactions to asthma to even cancer. Add to that the fact that manufacturers also often add dyes to the fibbers which offer additional chemical reactions, and you have a serious problem.
Baby clothes made from organic fibbers – wool, cotton, silk eliminate all health issues that can come from traditionally processed fibers. To make organic clothes an even healthier choice, many have nickel-free snaps or buttons made from beetle or coconuts, which are hypoallergenic, further ensure that the baby clothes are the safest possible clothing for children to wear.
Organic fibers also protect our environment. It also protects water quality and the health of people who work growing it and manufacturing it. So, purchasing organic baby clothes, blankets, bedding, etc., means that you not only protect your child, but you also have a hand in making the whole world a little safer place to live.
