What Every Mom Should Know about Infant Bedding

Moms around the world all want what’s best for their child and one of the main reasons why so many are focusing on sustainable products is to ensure that there is a beautiful world in their future. However, many don’t realize that it is a lot more basic than recycling and looking for BPA in tins containing food products. Did you know that the leading synthetic fibers on the market today are hazardous to your health? Not only are these fibers unsafe for clothing, but should never be used in bedding either. Here are some facts that every mom should know about infant bedding.

Fibers that Are Known to Be a Health Hazard

Much of today’s bedding is made from a cotton-poly blend of fibers which most busy moms absolutely love because they tend to be wrinkle resistant. Unfortunately, most consumers aren’t aware of the fact that Polyester is absolutely the most hazardous material on the market and one that should never be in contact with a child’s skin, especially over extended periods of time.
Polyester is manufactured from polymers which have been made from terpthalic acid (TPA) along with dihydric alcohol esters. According to the United States National Library of Medicine, TPA is an irritant that can cause problems with the mouth, throat and respiratory tract. With such worry about Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), it’s a wonder that governments allow infant bedding to be made with anything even remotely associated with TPAs.

Exposure Over a Long Period of Time

The problem is in repeated or extended exposure to these toxic fibers. Mothers shouldn’t be afraid to have their babies briefly held by grandmother who happens to be wearing a polyester shift. Those few moments aren’t going to make a difference. Unfortunately, clothing and other fibers that the child will be exposed to over long periods of time could very well present health risks.
Consider the amount of time your baby spends sleeping, especially whilst still in a cradle or crib. They are asleep more than they are awake for at least the first several months of their lives. Why risk any kind of health problems when there are organic cotton cradle mattresses on the market that are safe? Every mom should know that only organic fibers should be used around their most precious treasures, their children. With the availability of safe and comfy organic child friendly bedding, why take the risk?
Saving the earth for your child’s future is noble and something every mom and dad should do. Nonetheless, there are more immediate dangers to be concerned with so it is important to be kept informed of potential health hazards. From the food your child eats to the clothing worn or the bedding children sleep with, it is essential to make safety a top priority, both now and for the future. Organic cotton cradle mattresses will be a huge part of your infant’s life and will go a long way in keeping him or her healthy for those first very important months of life. As a concerned mother, you have made the right choice.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
