Is Organic Baby Clothing Worth the Hype?

Every parent wants the best for their children, organic baby clothing that is said to be perfectly safe tempts so many people. This issue is getting more pressing today as the number of children suffering from various skin disorders is increasing.

However, are organic fabrics really that different from non-organic baby clothing?

The difference is definitely there as the plants for organic fabrics are grown without the use of insecticides and other chemicals that might be dangerous for the baby.
If the fabric is 100% organic, it must also be produced without the use of any chemicals. This is where the issue gets difficult as the mass production of cloth relies heavily on some specialized solutions. In the end, no fabric can be made completely chemical free.

Another issue you will need to consider is the fact that environmental pollution is so widespread that there is hardly a part of the land not touched by it in some way. Therefore, even if the manufacturer doesn't use any pesticides and insecticides, some of them might be in the ground already as they are carried from other fields together with the ground water. Even rainwater carries some pollutants today, so no plant is 100% chemical free.

Taking these two facts into account, it becomes obvious that organic fabrics aren't as perfectly safe as they are made out to be. Of course, there is no arguing the fact that they contain a smaller amount of potentially dangerous chemicals. However, they still carry some "poison" in them and any claims to the contrary are false.

On the other hand, everything in the environment is polluted to some extent, even the air we breathe. Therefore, it's impossible to protect your baby from these chemicals completely. What you should really do is aim to reduce their exposure to the most dangerous of them.

So, avoiding synthetic fabrics is a must.
