From the moment you bring your new addition home from the hospital, you feel a deep responsibility to keep your baby safe. You probably began baby-proofing your house weeks in advance to prepare for your new bundle of joy.
You are also probably quite confident that your top-to-bottom baby-proofing tactics are effective, but there are still hidden hazards that slip under so many parents’ radar. Something as simple as your baby’s nursery can even be of danger.
Many new parents let “cuteness” and color schemes to be the deciding factor when selecting their baby’s nursery bedding, but safety should trump all. That’s why we believe organic choices are the best option even for baby’s nursery.
Traditional baby nurseries are loaded with hidden hazards. The curtains, blinds, crib rail, mattress, toys and other beddings are all often manufactured with toxic chemicals. Flame-retardants toxic dyes, phthalates, pesticides, VOC-filled paints and heavy metals are all commonly found in products created for infants.
Even conventional wood materials tend to be made with pressed/composites that use formaldehyde. Brief exposure to these chemicals is one thing, but when babies begin to teethe, the risks become much higher.
There is evidence to support that many of these synthetic materials can be linked to reproductive disorders and weakened immune systems! If more parents knew this, they would take this into consideration when creating their babies nursery.
Parents want to feel like our baby is MOST protected when at home in their own nursery. Introducing organic options is an easy way to do this. Bedding that uses organic cotton shell and low-impact dye rather than toxic dyes minimizes many dangers. These organic materials are safe for baby to breathe and even chew on when they begin to teethe.
Contrary to popular belief, organic doesn’t have to mean drab design. There are countless style options in the organic nursery that are available right here with Babee Talk.
With many selections to choose from, you don’t have to sacrifice cuteness or color coordinating when keeping your baby safe from harmful chemicals. There are even trinkets to accessorize your baby’s nursery that are equally as safe. With all these safe options readily available, creating an eco-friendly nursery is simple.
Choosing organic options for your baby is about far more than following an eco-trend. It’s about making sure your baby is safe! When did you realize that eco-friendly options were the best choice for your baby? Let us know in the comment section below.

As a mother, Jennifer understands the importance of offering nothing by the best for baby. Motivated by teeth marks on her children’s cribs, she decided to design a teething rail cover after trying products that didn’t measure up when it came to quality or style. What she found out made her even more concerned about children’s safety and health: The toxic chemicals used in the production of synthetic materials have been linked to birth defects, reproductive disorders, and weakened immune systems.
She asked herself, “What if I could revolutionize the way parents decorated their crib with a safe and stylish teething rail cover that could be placed on the crib from day one?” Babee Talk® launched in 2014 with organic bedding and accessories. Chew-friendly, drool-friendly, and organic inside and out, her products ensure a healthy start in life for babies.
She only offers products that she would provide for her own children. She hopes moms and dads will start to talk about the importance of choosing safe, healthy, eco-friendly products, especially for babies.
