I’ve always been a health conscious consumer, but never to the extent I am now that I have a toddler running around. Trying to find non-toxic, BPA-free, phthalate free, PVC free, formaldehyde free, organic anything for your child takes a lot of work. Some may say I’m a little obsessive about it, but after reading about all the effects of these chemicals, I can’t with good conscious not take it seriously. I haven’t gone completely chemical free, I’ll admit it, and I realize that there are still chemicals in our cars, our furniture, our clothing, etc… I can’t afford to turn over everything of course, but I can avoid as much as possible. So right from the beginning, I made sure anything touching my daughter’s skin, lotions, soaps, diapers, clothing, blankets and bedding were chemical free and organic if possible. See below for a list of non-toxic items for your little one.
