Baby’s bath time is one of the most special bonding rituals for parents and their little ones. It’s a time to sing and play, and help your baby gently wind down before bedtime. However, did you know that some of the most common bath toys may be potentially harmful to your child? Many vinyl and plastic chemically-ridden toys are regularly used without parents even realizing it. If you aren’t using organic bath toys for your baby yet,Naked Baby Eco Boutique can help you make the switch to keep bath time fun and safe for the whole family.
Many bath toys on the market today are made from toxic materials which contain a mix of harmful chemicals such as chlorine, phthalates, and flame retardants. When you add heat and humidity into the equation (two common elements during bath time), the likelihood of these harmful toxins leaching increases. Instead, choose more natural options like these versatile and entertainingSophie the Giraffe Bath Cubes which are free from BPA, phthalates, and PVC - all the stuff you don’t want releasing into your baby’s bath water.
As parents, it’s understandable that you want to recreate the same experiences for your children that you had as a child, however, it may not be wise to choose the same style of bath toy for them that you loved as a kid. The traditional “rubber ducky” toys are prone to trapping in moisture which can lead to mould and bacteria build up. If toys can’t be dried out completely, they provide ideal conditions for germs to develop and linger. It’s best to look for toys that are either solid so that no water can get in, or ones that can be opened up to fully dry. Toys such as thisGreen Toys Seacopter andGreen Toys Race Boat are ideal as they are not only made from eco-friendly materials, but are also super easy to clean. They’re even dishwasher safe for maximum convenience!
