Going Green for Baby’s Health and Safety
"Going Green" is about health and safety for your baby. By choosing "Green" you are reducing your baby’s exposure to harmful chemicals and toxins. You’re also making a choice for a healthier home and a healthier environment and that’s important for your whole family.
Making “Green” choices for your baby’s nursery is of vital importance (think low-voc paint; natural bedding, wall and window treatments; lasting furniture.)
Selecting your baby’s crib and nursery furniture is a good place to begin “Going Green”; choosing high-quality, safe furniture that will last and transition with your child throughout his or her growing stages is a smart investment and a savvy “Green” choice.
A Young America Built To Grow Laurels Crib (shown above) is a good example of a product that is not only Greenguard-certified, but also can be converted to a toddler bed, then full-sized bed when the time comes. Young America stationary cribs (see the Grace Crib below) can be converted to toddler beds too.
…to chemical-free bedding and beyond. Plus, we discovered Naturepedic is a good source for natural crib and kids’ mattresses, an important purchase to consider when planning your baby’s bedroom.
We also love the concept of treating your baby to the safety of beautiful, all-natural cotton linens, like these sweet baby blankets from etsy.com…
…and then there’s the lure of organic cotton baby clothing like these finds at kate quinn organics…
And once baby is clothed and resting in a safe, healthy place, you may want them playing with toys that are toxin-free as well. There are countless sources of “Green” baby and kids’ toys out there, including environmentally-friendly ones made from recycled materials like greentoys.com or all-natural and organic toys from a website like oompa.com. Visit local stores in your area too.
…or look at gogreentravelgreen.com for their “top ten” list of “green” toys, most of which can be purchased on Amazon.
The JPMA , the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association, is a valuable resource for baby safety information and tips too.
We are always on the look-out for ways to “Go Green” for your baby’s safety. We hope these suggestions give you some new insights on how to create a happy, healthy home for your wee one.
Happy baby safety month. Happy September!
