All of us were babies at once. This made us think that we know well what the baby needs. The space and environment where the baby will grow, the toys and clothes it needs to have are in value to every parent. Yet, there are things in which far more important than those things mentioned earlier – especially the crib to be used and the things to be put onto it, including the crib sheets, the mattresses and the beddings to be used. Of course, we know how important these things are for babies. However, mothers, as sometimes due to excitement, are eager to find comforting and attractive baby gears. This is not always good. This may compromise one thing – the baby’s safety. How so?
Make Baby’s Safety a Priority
I found it common that most mothers buy things for their baby according to their respective likes, may it be in terms of color, design and type of fabric, with regards to decorating the baby’s crib, especially the beddings and the mattresses. Of course, babies can’t decide, so mothers will. A vast array of designs and textures of different beddings and mattresses exists in the market. Many of these come inadorable styles and prints which may be tempting to mothers when decorating baby’s room. However, little did we realize that most of these clothings used in beddings and mattresses are harmful for babies.
Most crib sheets, mattresses and beddings are made up of synthetic materials. These synthetic materials came from crops which are very susceptible to insects and pests.So, to increase the production as well as its profits, the use of spray with generous amount of pesticide and insecticides is implemented.Due to the advancement in manufacturing technology, industries often produced materials that are easy to produce, with quality, more efficient and affordable to the public. These types of clothing producedhas an overwhelming amount of toxins and full of harmful agents such as chemicals coming from pesticides, flame retardants, ammonia and artificial dyes. Though washing these clothings before using it may sound helpful but it doesn’t remove all the harmful agents. More often than not, many of these harmful agents will leech into the body’s system andcan affect the baby’s health.There is no way we can let any baby to sit, plays, and sleeps for almost 18 hours a day on this kind of sheets, would we?
Baby’s body system is so sensitive and delicate. It continuously develops even outside the womb, which includes the respiratory system, the digestive system, and the nervous system. I suppose this is the reason why mothers take extra good care of their young ones. Choosing the finest item that could guarantee baby’s safety is of the most priority. Items that are softer and warmer, more pleasant to skin and most importantly are free from harmful chemical agents are preferred.For this reason, the use of organic crib sheets is recommended.
What to Choose?
Though organic crib sheets may sound costly, but the benefits it gives to babies surpasses its monetary value. That’s why most of the mommies out there chose this type of crib sheets. What are the benefits then? Consider these things.
- Safe and no harmful chemical agents.From the name itself, “organic”, this type of crib sheets is mostly made up of cotton blends – an organic material. Cotton blends come from cotton crops. These crops are grown without any toxic material or sprays against insecticides and pesticides. Even synthetic fertilizers or other materials are not included in the manufacturing process.On this account, we can be sure that this type of crib sheets contains no harmful chemical agents which is mostly present in standard brands. Additionally, organic sheets don’t produce excess dust and are safer for babies. When using this, protection of the baby skin and lungs is a sure thing, which means there is nothing that will cause your baby to have any skin or lung allergies.Nothing to worry out much mommies!
- Delicate enough to handle baby’s delicate skin. Organic sheets are made up of organic or natural materials which are naturally softer and warmer compared to others.Natural fabrics also provide baby a comfortable experience. It is a natural absorbent and wicks moisture on the skin which then keeps the baby skin warm during cold days otherwise cool during warm days.The babies will surely get a comfortable and relaxing lengthy hours of sleep.
- Inspiring prints and styles. Many mommies may think that organic sheets come only in one style and color which is not inspiring at all. Actually, to clear that negative perspective, organic sheets come also in a vast array of different colors. Why, there are dyes that are allergen-free and non-toxic. Organic sheets used this type of dyes to beautify and leave colorful impressions on the baby’s sleeping environment. Mommies would surely get excited and inspired in decorating.
Since there are things that are inevitable which can affect the baby’s health, however, it is of great advantage to do the best things and make wise decisions for the baby’s utmost protection. Don’t ignore simple things. So may we take one step in advance for protecting baby’s health by choosing organic crib sheets.
