The Truth About Baby Skin
We all know that our babies have super delicate skin. So delicate in fact that pediatricians don't even recommend putting sunscreen on it until after six months old. There's a whole skincare category devoted to baby skincare, and with good reason. Baby's skin is 30 percent thinner than adult skin and therefore absorbs whatever is put on it at a higher rate than more mature skin. Many baby-safe skincare brands are hyperaware of this and are made without toxins or scary ingredients, and that's great and all, but what many moms don't realize is that it's not just soaps or lotions that can affect baby's skin. Any fabric that your baby comes into contact with can also potentially irritate and get absorbed into the skin, too.

What You Don't Want in Fabrics
Fabrics containing petrochemicals, PVCs or synthetic fibers can get absorbed through the skin. Studies have showed that those synthetic materials are linked to all sorts of alarming things, such as behavioral issues and immune disorders as well as cancer. While it's virtually impossible to ensure that all fabrics your little one comes into contact with are worry-free, you can do your best to make sure that the fabrics they're exposed to most often are toxin-free. This means the sleepsuits they wear every day and the clothes and fabrics they sleep with.
