So a few years ago, a couple was expecting and asked if anyone had advice for first time parents. And lots of experienced moms and dads chimed in. There was some AMAZING ADVICE given and I wanted to share that advice with you because I see so many first time parents struggle in the beginning for different reasons. I think when you hear from other parents who have been there, done that... it can help to normalize parenthood.
The top two reasons parents choose to go "green" when it comes to baby's clothing and toys. 1.) for the health of their baby and 2.) to support environmental changes. These parents feel that it's important to choose organic and natural products that come into direct contact with their baby skin. After all, clothing is next to their skin all night and day. The fact is, much of what we place on our skin is absorbed into our bloodstream. Parents need to remember that babies put everything in their mouths to chew and suck therefore swallowing. So whatever is in and on the material goes into their system.
