Do you ever stop and think about the chemicals that might be firmly entrenched in your baby’s clothes? Cotton is one of the most heavily pesticide-treated crops in the U.S. And those chemicals don’t all come out with a simple wash in your machine, I’m afraid. For some babies, this doesn’t seem to be a problem. But for many, it is the root cause of rashes, redness and irritation. This is what the founder of Cutie Bees discovered just a few years ago when her baby girl was suffering from skin flare ups. Once she started putting her in organic cotton, she rapidly improved!
Cutie Bees in an organic clothing company for babies that focuses on bringing back really cute styles, which is something the founder noticed was lacking in the current selection of organic-only clothing for babies and toddlers. Check out one of the styles that is currently available on the website:
I sort of die every time Layah puts on this bows and ballet outfit. It is so ADORABLE!!! And totally free of the chemicals that are in most other outfits and that have been linked to asthma and even cancer.
And the attention to detail is spot on, right down to the leggings!
This outfit retails for $41.99 and is just one of several very cute options that are brightly colored, fashion-forward, and most importantly, COMFORTABLE for play time and nap time! And right now through May 15 Cutie Bees is offering 22% off and free shipping in honor of Earth Day! Just use code EARTH22 at checkout!
If your child seems to be experiencing sensitivities to certain types of clothing, or if you are just concerned about the chemicals found in many cotton outfits (the chemicals DON’T wash out well…I’ve done my research on it!), then you may want to give organic clothing a try. It is a bit more expensive, but there’s something to be said for having fewer items, and having them all be high quality and SAFE.
