The Toxic Load Starts Early

Do you know that as soon as you are conceived you start taking in toxins? Yes, it’s scary but true. There are so many unavoidable toxins in our lives, so when it comes to the ones we can control, shouldn’t we exercise that option? A baby cannot control it’s toxic load, but mommy can!

When a mom-to-be uses products, it can affect the baby, even later in life. This is why it is extremely important for pregnant women to eat right  (organically) and use safe cosmetic and personal care products.

After the baby is born, your product vigilance should not stop! Babies take in so many toxins through the products we assume are safe….You bathe your baby in bubble bath, use baby lotion or oil, diaper cream, and powder. Do you know what is in these products? They may contain parabens (a hormone disruptor) artificial colors, artificial fragrances (phthalates,) talc….too many for baby’s burgeoning system to handle. Do you really want your precious new baby exposed to all these chemicals?

If you plan on ever having children, I highly recommend you check out this post from Euphoria’s Blog For Green Mama’s. In it, author Rachel lists the top 10 toxic baby products. Go take a look……anything surprise you? Is this going to make you change what you use? I hope so!

I would love to know if you use safe baby products and how they work for you.

Stay natural…stay beautiful…go green!
