Modern Baby Bedding Made Safe

By Ken Godberson

There are few things more important than the safety of our children, especially during their infancy. As such, parents, especially first-time parents, are very nervous about what ends up around their babies. So they will research what are the most nutritious baby food brands or what are the safest toys. Baby bedding is just one of many of these factors that go into parent's consideration. Not only what the design of the bedding, but what materials it is made out of.

Articles describe that baby bedding made from less-than-stellar materials can lead to health problems. Such poorly made bedding has also been hypothesized as a cause for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), a horrible fate for any child. The hazardous materials could emit colorless, odorless gasses that will damage the nervous system of the infant, causing death. It's truly a parent's worst nightmare.

This may sound like a condemnation of baby bedding. However, there is hope. Over the years, we have seen a rise of all-natural and organic-grown foods in order to not only maintain the environment but to keep humanity healthy. This aesthetic has begun to expand beyond food production. We have begun to see clothing lines embrace the use of natural dyes for their products and the manufacturing from reusable materials in other industries.

The baby furniture industry has begun to take notice of this as well. manufacturers that are embracing this construction plan of utilizing environmentally friendly materials have several strategies. These include the use of reusable woods, the use of non-toxic construction products such as glues, stains, and finishes and above all else, the use of 100% organic cotton, free of pesticides or herbicides, in the production of baby bedding.

I am not going to lie and say that this move to eco-friendly manufacturing is going to wipe away parental fear for their child's safety forever. A fear for one's child is one of the most natural aspects of what makes a human. However, it is the hope that this consideration of both the environment and the consumer's health that pushes companies to make these changes will help alleviate that ever-present fear.
