Why choose organic cotton over normal cotton for your baby?
When it comes to your newborn baby, it’s natural to want the very best for them. But with so much information available, it can be tough to know what to prioritise and where to begin.
As any parent will tell you, the early days are some of the most precious. As such, you’ll want to give your baby the best start in life, which means protecting their sensitive skin and minimising their exposure to unnecessary harm.
This is particularly important, since newborn skin is especially vulnerable. Born with a protective coating called ‘vernix’, as this natural layer comes off, some babies may show dry or even cracked skin as part of the normal process. And as you may have experienced, babies are also prone to common skin ailments such as; eczema, cradle cap, milia, dermatitis, baby acne and nappy rash.
While there are some great creams and products on the market to help with this, prevention is always better than cure. That’s why many parents are choosing to opt for kinder fabrics, such as organic cotton for their child’s clothes and cot bedding. Even Plunket NZ advise the following in relation to babies: “Some fabrics can irritate the skin. Try to avoid Polyester and nylon and stick to cotton instead.”
