What Does Natural and Organic Mean for Babies?

There is a big push towards #natural and organic food products and clothing for #babies and toddlers. Benefits of the migration to natural and organic have varying degrees of support. One thing is for sure; buying natural or organic will cost more money.

If you are a proponent of natural and organic products for your baby, you certainly have been shopping in different stores, online and spending more time and money to incorporate this new life choice into your lifestyle. You're reading and getting confused about what cleaners to use, what sunscreens not to use and which fruits and vegetables you must buy organic versus which you can buy chemically treated. You're also finding that the selection of organic baby clothing is limited and expensive.

Other aspects altogether would include much organic food to buy at one time, cooking of organics to get the most nutritional value as well as storing of organics because they will go bad faster than pesticide/preservative treated foods.

To keep confusion to a minimum, don't "go natural" all at once. Address one food group or product at a time and slowly make the change. Chances are it's going to take you quite some time and testing to find, for example, the right shampoo that works for your baby.

Remember: Just because a product or piece of clothing is "all natural" or "organic" does not mean your baby will not be allergic. There are plenty of natural things that people are allergic to like peanuts, flowers, animals, etc. Allergies can be triggered when products are ingested, come in contact with skin or are airborne. Be sure to test the new foods, fragrances, and materials on your baby for the recommended 3 days before introducing another new agent. If irritations present themselves, stop usage and contact your pediatrician for advice.
