It seems there’s another baby boom on the way. We’ve had lots of visitors at 21 Acres the past couple of months who are new parents or soon-to-be parents. There are so many decisions, so many choices to make with a growing family. In our on-going effort to provide information and resources for consumers, we’ve added a section to the 21 Acres Green Resources Directory that’s all about kids. We’ll start with the littlest ones!
Eliminating a baby’s exposure to harmful chemicals is so very important. Children are more susceptible to the effects of toxins, more so than adults. Their little immune systems are immature and much less capable of eliminating chemicals. Decreasing their exposure could could lower the risk of allergies later on, sensitivity to other elements, and even lower the risk of cancers and other disease and illnesses.
From nipples and bottles, to pacifiers, to diapers, to shampoo, to linens, to furniture; choose the products you know will keep your child safe and healthy. Here are some resources and shopping sites to help with your purchasing decisions:
And, the Environmental Working Group has a whole list of non-toxic products for babies and moms. Check it out here. Now, pinch those sweet cheeks and tickle those little toes for us please!
(As always, if you have information or a resource to share with us, please let us know in the comments. We’d love to hear from you!)
