In today’s society, we create a lot of pollution. This pollution comes from carbon gases, exhaust pipes and industrial fumes. Of course, they are the obvious ones. But there are the subtle ones too, that we often forget about, things that are part of our everyday life, in the comfort of our own house or workplace. Everyday, we are exposed to several chemicals. On the long run, we don’t know what this exposure, so little it is, can do to our health. So this is why it is important to decrease our children’s exposure to chemicals. Here are some tips to keep this pollution in baby’s bedroom at a low level.

Provide them with a healthy and well-aired space.

An eco-advice that is easy to apply : air your child’s bedroom every day. There is nothing better to clean to air and get rid of polluting matters floating in the air. Be careful however on cooler days that baby does not get cold. While you are airing the room with the windows wide opened, bring your baby to a different room.

When cleaning to room, avoid using bleach or aerosols because they are often the cause of air pollution in the house. Dusting and cleaning regularly using water and a regular soap are usually more than enough.

Our industrialized society calls for the need of exhaust pipes, carbon gases and industrial fumes, which are all part of what causes pollution. But pollution is much more than industrial fumes, they are also more subtle things we are exposed to everyday at home. Because babies and children are much more sensitive to this pollution, and because we don’t know what long term exposure can cause to our bodies, try to keep this minimal in your baby’s room.

Organic and eco bedding and mattress

Bedding wise, opt for organic material and an organic crib mattress. Organic beddings (blankets, organic crib mattress, pillows, pillow cases, crib pads) are made of natural materials, that are untreated, unbleached and does not contain chemicals dyes.

Sheep wool is a very popular material in the making of baby blankets for several reasons. First, they are hypoallergenic, have natural antibacterial properties and are treated with natural methods.

As soon as your child is old enough to sleep in a regular bed, opt for a pillow and a comforter filled with cereals (millet, buckwheat, wheat) ou goose feathers if there are no allergies running in your family.
