Remove Toxins From Your Babies (Pets and Kids)
Taking care of babies and pets can bring a whole new layer of chemicals into your life.
Protect them – and yourself – by making a few very conscious choices about their care.
NO: Pest-control shampoo
One recent study found that parents who’d bathed their pets with pyrethrin pest-control shampoos were twice as likely to have an autistic child.
YES: Natural pet shampoos
Two good ones are Davines and Dr. Hauschka.
NO: Lice shampoo for kids
Every time you use lice shampoo, you’re dumping pesticides on your kid’s head.
YES: Adopt a “no nits!” policy
Use a lice comb and get the nits out before they develop into lice.
Prevent recurrences with a few drops of tea tree essential oil sprinkled on their heads every day.
NO: Flame-retardant clothing
Make sure your kids’ pajamas, bedding, pillows, and mattresses don’t include polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), chemicals linked to thyroid disruption, learning and memory problems, damage to hearing, decreased sperm counts, and birth defects.
YES: Organic bedding and clothing
Your body, your kids’ bodies, and the planet will be much happier.
NO: Plastic toys
Many manufacturers and stores have pledged to remove phthalates from their toys, but if the recalls on toys from China tell us anything, it’s that we can’t be 100% sure of product claims.
YES: Wood and cloth toys
Choose unpainted wood and organic fabric toys, and don’t buy toys made in China. (Sorry, but until they clean up their act, it’s best to steer clear!)
NO: Soy formula
Unless your pediatrician says otherwise.
Babies who drink soy formula consume a tremendous amount of phytoestrogens per pound of body weight.
YES: Breast feed
Try to breast feed and if you can’t, ask your pediatrician to recommend the best formula for your baby.
Don’t be scared that environmental toxins may leach into your breast milk.
Experts say the benefits of breast-feeding surpass any potential dangers.
NO: BPA bottles or chlorine-bleached diapers
Don’t put endocrine disruptors directly into your baby’s mouth or on your baby’s bottom.
YES: Use glass bottles and unbleached diapers
Choose glass bottles and unbleached diapers, such as Seventh Generation chlorine-free diapers or gDiapers.
