Why Is All Natural Crib Bedding So Soft

By Rob Hikers

The safety of organic baby bedding is why it has become popular with parents over the past 7-10 years. Parents realize that the best way to protect their children is to use bedding and even clothing where the materials grown are not infected with harmful chemicals.

Before we explain in details what organic baby bedding is let us first define what organic means when referring to baby bedding.

When crops are grown the old fashion way, without any help from chemicals or pesticides these are organic crops. Also known as natural crops and natural products.

The crop that is grown and used in organic baby bedding is cotton. So now when parents purchase organic baby bedding they know that they are buying a product that is 100 percent all natural and that means it's safer for their babies.

Not only are organic baby bedding more safe than chemically grown cotton but many parents report that the material actually feels much more softer. And because the materials are softer studies have shown that babies actually sleep longer on organic baby bedding versus your chemically grown material.

All natural bedding is more softer because when chemicals are used to grow cotton it actually causes the cotton to deteriorate in small portions. This causes the crop to lose some of its luster and softness. So not only do the safety features entice parents but organic material also has a higher level of comfort.

However there is a downside to using organic products and that is there usually more expensive. So is there a way to make your babies bedding and even clothing safe if it's not organic.

Let's be honest everyone can't afford to go green. If you fall under that category the best thing for you to do is to wash and clean any item that will touch your infants skin before you use it or wear it.

This is important to do because it will wash away any chemicals used to grow the crop that created the baby bedding. However, you have to use a cleaning solution created for baby items like Drift. It's much safer and it will not add more chemicals to the clothing like tide. This is important to do because your infants skin is very sensitive and can be easily irritated.
