Most often, nursery bedding is chosen based on color and theme, but there is more to consider than how it looks. Some materials and dyes contain chemicals that can irritate your baby's skin. For a greener, healthier option, choose a crib set made from organic cotton.
A Baby's skin is thinner and more porous than an adult's, so they tend to absorb toxins more easily. Organic cotton is grown and processed without using harmful pesticides or chemicals, making it much safer for your baby's delicate skin. Also, organic cotton absorbs moisture in a more efficient way than polyester, keeping baby drier and happier. In addition to the health benefits, many moms claim it is softer, more durable and last longer than bedding made from traditional cotton.
Organic cotton is not only better for baby, but it is better for the environment. Choosing organically grown materials encourages agricultural methods that do not harm the environment and reduces the amount of chemical emissions released into the air.
