Non-Toxic Nursery

?Rooms in my house? – Nursery

Sadly, I no longer have a nursery in my home, so my niece, who is very health conscious as well, showed me all of her favorites for her one year old. They are all items I’d definitely buy if I did have a nursery myself.
“Pound for pound, kids are exposed to more contaminants in air, water, food and personal care products than adults. Immature organ systems are often less capable of fending off chemical assaults.” EWG

“Newborn baby skin care is a delicate matter because their skin absorbs so much of what you rub into it. In the early months, as your baby’s immune system and bacteria in their gut develops, you’ll want to use the mildest cleansers and the smallest bit of lotion. Your newborn needs dye-free, fragrance-free baby skin care products.” (Web-MD).
. ⭐️One of the problems in baby products is the synthetic fragrance. Why❓
?Synthetic fragrance – this can be over 3000 different chemicals and companies are not required by law to label what their fragrance is made up of. It’s their “trade secret.” Nor does the FDA require any testing of these chemicals or monitoring of their health effects. The only label on the product will say fragrance, perfume, or parfum.
Synthetic fragrance is linked to allergies, skin irritation, eczema and can be toxic.
Thankfully so many better choice baby products are out on the market today. Look for ones without:
Synthetic fragrance
Formaldehyde releasors
Artificial dyes
Propylene glycol
Artificial preservatives
Petroleum based
Of course there are so many more items we could have added. What are some of your favorite non toxic nursery items?
