Awesome Organic Baby Products for New Mums

Natural nurturing

As kids, we don’t think at all about the ‘chemicals’ that might be in the things we put in our mouths or play with. As teenagers, we certainly do care about the chemicals we put in our body… and often put them in purposefully, in the interests of experimentation! As adults we are usually quite indifferent… until our babies start arriving. These tiny little bundles are inescapably helpless, miraculously soft and mightily vulnerable, and many Mums turn to organic solutions to help assure them that they aren’t doing any harm to their children. If you know a natural nurturer, today we check out some of the best organic baby products and baby accessories to be found.

1. Organic baby products for the bath

Bath time is one of those times when you can’t really do without the help of various substances to get your bub clean. For natural-style Mums, organic baby products for the bath are a must.

2. Organic baby clothing

Mums can not only feel good about their contribution to the environment with organic fabric baby clothing, but can also stress less about itchiness that causes unfathomable crying, skin rashes and sensitization to various substances.

3. Cloth nappies

Buy organic cotton terry towelling nappies as a new-Mum baby product gift, and she’ll be saving money as well as protecting her baby’s skin and the environment.

4. Organic skincare for Mum

Becoming a mother can be so rewarding… but also terrifying, as you completely lose your sense of self, sense of beauty and ways of relating to other adults. Beauty products for Mums are a fantastic gift after the birth – organic is best, because bubs will be in close contact with Mum’s skin for substantial portions of the day while either breast or bottle feeding.

5. Organic household cleaners

I personally hate breathing in Spray and Wipe fumes… and you can imagine what they do to a tiny baby’s not-yet-developed lungs. There are plenty of organic cleaning products options available nowadays, and these baby accessories come in far more delicious flavours than ‘Commercial Lemon’!

6. Organic wipes

With a new baby, Mums spend quite a few of the day’s hours wiping various ‘things’ up! Baby wipes can’t help leaving a residue on the skin, so many Mums prefer them to be organic.

7. Organic teething toys

With the current kerfuffle over bisphenol-A, most Mums agree that organic baby accessories for teething are best. You can get all-natural rubber or leather teething baby products.

8. Organic shopping bags

Granted, you won’t be shopping for nightclub fashions, new jewellery or makeup… but you may as well look great (and be organic!) while popping out for rice cereal and juice! You’ll find Envirosax organic shopping bags designed for Mums at many good organic baby products shops… and the range of designs is irresistible.

However the most important thing to parents is that their child is going to be safe when using this equipment and Babystyle know just how important this is. Most of the furniture is fitted with the “soft close” device which stops children from slamming down lids or draws shut and causing injuries to themselves and loud noises. Most parents like the idea of having extra storage space too and Babystyle recognise this by adding extra storage space underneath cots and baby changers built on top of draws.

The furniture available by Babystyle comes in a range of colours and designs meaning that you are able to buy furniture that will match what you already have, or buy the whole range.

Another fantastic range of baby furniture and accessories is Silver Cross.

Because of the brand being so well known and trusted for such a long time, parents find that buying from Silver Cross is the best choice they can make.

Cybex are especially known for their safety and were awarded a which? Award. They come in a range of colours and styles depending on the child’s size and age and can be used in car or as a carrier when out and about.

All of these brands can be found on the high street and in almost all baby and children’s retailers across the region.
