Why Cotton?

Cotton - Giggle & Beans

Your baby is delicate and so is his/her skin. That is why cotton is the best fabric for your newborn’s skin. This is why doctors recommend using Cotton baby receiving blankets and cotton clothing for babies. Here are a few reasons why you ought to use only cotton fabrics for your baby:

• Cotton is a natural, 100% organic fabric.

• Cotton clothes are soft, and do not rub harshly against baby’s soft skin.

• Cotton fabrics permit better aeration and will keep your baby cool. The nature of cotton permits it to absorb and remove body’s moisture easily.

• Since it is a natural fabric, cotton is non allergenic. Therefore, you don’t have to worry about baby breaking out in rashes or eczema. Synthetic products are often treated with harsh chemicals to give them a good finish – These chemicals can cause rashes on our newborn baby’s skin.

• Cotton is perfect for babies who suffer from asthma because unlike other materials, it does not release small particulate matter that can trigger an attack.

• It is easier to clean cotton fabrics than other kinds of fabrics. They release dirt and grime easily, so there is no need to use harsh soaps and chemicals to get rid of stains and dirt on cotton fabrics.

• In addition to the benefits it offers your baby, cotton is great for the environment too. It is 100% natural and therefore biodegradable too.
