One of my friends is due next month, so I created this non-toxic baby registry to help her wade through the millions of products on the market today. All families want the best for their new babies, and choosing products that are free from harmful additives and materials gives babies the healthiest start possible.

Babies are constantly developing and growing, and are more vulnerable to toxic chemicals than adults. Why expose your baby to potentially harmful chemicals when you don’t need to?

ADDITIVES & MATERIALS TO AVOID IN BABY PRODUCTS

  • Flame Retardants– These are found in most crib mattresses, strollers, car seats, high chairs and nursing pillows. Studies suggest that infants and toddlers have higher exposures to PBDEs compared to older children or adults.
  • Plastics– BPA and other endocrine-disrupting plasticizers are found in plastic baby bottles, sippy cups, pacifiers and baby toys. It’s not just BPA we should worry about, since other plasticizers like endocrine-disrupting BPS often replace BPA.
  • Phthalates– Phthalates can be found in baby care products like lotion and baby wash, in laundry detergent and dryer sheets and in plastic packaging. Phthalates are endocrine-disrupting chemicals that can affect neurodevelopment in young children.

I searched high and low for the best non-toxic baby essentials for newborns and postpartum moms, and I grouped the items into 11 simple & easy categories. From organic pajamas to a flame retardant-free crib mattress to plastic-free pacifiers and bottles, you or your expecting mom friend will love to unwrap any of the non-toxic baby essentials below!
