The Eco-friendly Mom and Baby for the 21st Century
Date:6/10/2008

being done on these chemicals, some parents have chosen to be cautious. Dr. Greene says there are some things women can do:

-- Breastfeed their babies so they don't have to use baby bottles;

-- Use baby bottles made of glass, polypropylene, or polyethylene;

-- Use baby products with labels that say they don't contain BPA or

phthalates.

What about infant clothing and bedding? Actually the biggest problem new parents have with baby clothes are that their infants grow so quickly that they outgrow clothes before they're even worn! So don't buy too many at once, or go green by seeking out hand-me-downs.

Dr. Greene says a baby mattress made of organic materials is worth the extra expense because the baby will lie so close to it every day and night for several years.

Which are the safest health care products; laundry detergents, shampoos or soaps? Organic shampoos have labels that are often misleading for parents. As for soaps, any kind can irritate babies' skin, so warm water is usually just fine. There's also no need to douse babies in baby powder. Talc, in fact, is a known irritant for babies' lungs.

What is the best way to create a safe, eco-friendly nursery? Dr. Forman advises families to avoid paints that contain high levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Low-VOC and zero-VOC paints and finishes are now available from most major retailers.

Do antibacterial wipes, soaps, and other products really fight germs? Our experts say you don't need antibacterial soaps and wipes. The excessive use of antibacterial chemicals inhibits the development of our natural resistance and can contribute to creating resistant bacteria.
