Are you excited to meet your baby and wondering how to best prepare your home for his or her arrival?
In the excitement of preparing to meet your baby, one thing that you may not have thought about, is the amount of chemicals and compounds, that may affect you and your baby’s health.
Why is this important?
The cleaning products you use in your baby's nursery should ideally protect his or her gut bacteria and provide a good foundation for health.
Baby care and cleaning products may not be as caring as they are made out to be and this can come as a surprise!
The products that you use to clean your baby’s;
…may contain chemicals that disrupt your baby’s natural skin and gut bacteria, causing imbalances that influence his or her future health.
By using eco-friendly baby care and cleaning products, you will be supporting your baby’s delicate new skin and gut bacteria, providing a strong foundation for their good health in the long-term.
The best time to start getting your baby’s nursery ready, is in the second trimester. By this time the early tiredness and nausea, will (hopefully) have subsided and you may be feeling strong and energetic.
If this is your first baby, you may want to start off with getting the bigger nursery furniture. This is specially so, if you are planning a baby shower, as you may receive clothes and other baby equipment from friends and family.
Remember that babies grow fast and will outgrow a lot of clothes and newborn baby furniture quickly.
You won’t need all the baby gear, that you see trending on social media.
According Fortune Business Insights, the global baby care products industry, was worth a staggering $215.13 billion in 2022 and is projected to rise to $331.92 billion by 2029.
It can be tempting to buy all the furniture, gadgets, and gizmos that the baby product industry tempts you with. However, your baby will not care or even remember how expensive the cot, toys or clothing you buy are.
All she or he will need are the basics and these are:
In the current financial climate, you may choose to buy second hand baby furniture or clothes.
Whether you buy new or second hand, you will need to make sure that they are clean and hygienic before they come into contact with your baby.
A lot of commercial baby care and cleaning products contain compounds and chemicals that are known as endocrine disruptors. You’ve probably heard the more commonly known chemicals as phthalates, parabens, BPAs, Triclosan and many others.
These chemicals also have the ability to affect your baby’s skin and gut bacteria.
This may cause childhood illnesses such as eczema, psoriasis and asthma.
Which is why breast milk is promoted as the best milk for babies and why skin to skin contact is promoted, especially for newborn babies. This is because they help provide a good foundation for your baby's long-term health.
