Organic And Natural Ideas For Your Baby NurseryOrganic And Natural Ideas For Your Baby Nursery

After the initial excitement of finding out your are expecting, you find yourself faced with a myriad of decisions. Today, it is easier than ever to choose to parent your child in a natural and organic way to help ensure she is surrounded by healthy materials and products. Choosing to go organic will help your baby be less prone to allergies and infections and other unhealthy conditions.

Nearly everything in your baby's nursery can be found in a natural form, including the bedding, her clothing, and the décor. Natural baby items are becoming more and more prevalent in the marketplace and many companies are offering products which fall into the natural or organic category. The decision to go natural can be rewarding for both you and your baby.

The environment in your baby's nursery is also important. Your baby is surrounded by paint and carpet and of course air. Make sure the paint is a lead-free paint, and if you are applying a new paint to coordinate with the nursery patterns, you can go with an eco-friend brand of paint, such as Ecos Organic Paints or FreshAire Choice. These paints have less paint odor to the and are free of the harsh chemicals that remain in your home and in the air. This will help your baby avoid inhaling any fumes and breathe more easily. Additionally, an ionizer can also help keep the air fresh and clean as well.

When you are ready to select baby furniture, look for woods that are organic in nature and come from sustainable material. Part of being a natural parent is being aware of where materials are derived as well as choosing healthy products. If manufactured outside the country, try to make sure the furniture is a fair-trade item where the workers are treated and paid fairly for their efforts. In this way you are looking out for your baby's future as well as people's lives today.

Of course the bedding you choose for the crib can be made from organic items. Organic cotton is becoming readily available for purchase, and organic bamboo is also starting to make its presence in the bedding world. In addition to being a sustainable source, bamboo is extremely soft as well as a natural repellant for dust mites and bacteria. Organic fibers like cotton and bamboo can be found in a variety of colors and designs to complement any nursery theme.

Your baby will need some care products. You can have natural canvas shelves with natural baby products on them from manufacturers such as Aveeno, Burt's Bees Baby Bee, and California Baby which are safer for baby's skin and less likely to cause irritation.

If you are choosing to use natural and organic products, it is a good idea to let your family and friends know of your decision. This way if they are purchasing gifts for you and your baby, they can find items which will meet your philosophy. And with the combined efforts of you and your family and friends, you will have a beautiful nursery natural in every way, from the products you use for your baby to the furniture in which she sleeps.
