Why is Organic important when choosing for your baby?

At Baby Village, we encourage the use of organic materials in baby products as it's not only great for your baby but it's helping the earth heal too. 

Did you know? Your baby's skin is five times softer than yours! So it's important when choosing sleepwear that you know what it's made from. Love to Dream, founded by Hana-Lia Krawchuk (a new mummy herself at the time), created the infamous Swaddle UP and has since released a range made from organic Cotton. 

The value of organic cotton lies in the fact that the fabric is often rich in essential oils which means it creates a barrier to anything that could cause your baby a nasty rash, and it's free from harmful chemicals. Love to Dream's Organic Sleepwear is the range your eco-friendly baby Wishlist has been missing!

At Baby Village, we also stock and love Nature’s Child baby wipes. Being free from unnatural and harmful chemicals, you can be confident that your baby is not only clean, but safe and happy at the same time!

 


Why choose Eco Friendly and Sustainable products for your Bub?

Sustainable and eco friendly products have become increasingly important in our lives with many non-biodegradable products taking over 500 years to decompose. As we bring our new humans into the world, we become more conscious of the footprint that we are leaving and look for more carbon-neutral, earth-friendly products in our parenting lives. From natural rubber, to bamboo fibres and wooden toys generated in sustainable forests, we range a variety of eco friendly and sustainable products that should be at the top of your baby wishlist! 

"Grown and harvested without pesticides, bamboo products are a guaranteed safe way to put food on the table for your toddlers"

Eco Rascals is a brand we love here at Baby Village due to it’s eco-friendly material use of bamboo. Started by the yummy mummy duo, Kristina and Celeidh, the two had the goal of creating children’s tableware products that were plastic free, sustainable and biodegradable. Grown and harvested without pesticides, bamboo products are a guaranteed safe way to put food on the table for your toddlers. They are also heat, stain, odour, water resistant and non toxic - what more could you ask for?!

Another sustainable product we just can’t get enough of is Ecoriginals Antibacterial Wipes. Founded in Byron Bay, the two young parents behind this brand struggled to find any nappies and wipes that were truly eco-friendly. 

The wipes they created are made from Natural bamboo fibre and purified New Zealand water ensuring that they are gentle and effective against germs. If your goal is to keep your baby fresh, clean and to stay eco-friendly while you're doing it, look no further!
 

Why is Natural so important for you and your baby? The differences between Rubber and Silicone:  

In a world that's filled with toxicity, we relish in anything labelled ‘natural’. A common question is rubber versus silicone pacifiers. Although silicone is made from natural chemicals, the process of getting silicone requires sand mining, which is a direct cause of erosion and is responsible for habitat depletion, coastal flooding and the decline of water quality.

"In a world that's filled with toxicity, we relish in anything labelled ‘natural’"

At Baby Village, we love natural rubber as a more environmentally friendly alternative. When harvesting natural rubber, the process involves 'rubber tapping'. This is where the sap is taken out from the tree and used to make latex. This is an incredibly environmental process in comparison to the creation of silicone because a single rubber tree can be sustainably harvested for approximately 35 years!

It is important to consider all your options when choosing what pacifier to buy your baby, and at BV we highly recommend Hevea Dummies made from natural rubber.
