What do I choose?
Want to know which products to buy for your little one? Concerned if the products you’re after are natural, organic non-toxic and safe for your child? There’s a gamut of options out there and it takes hours of researching online.
Essentially, one of the most successful ways to approach parenthood is by selecting the right set of products and tools for your baby. By choosing non-toxic and organic baby products that are free from harmful chemicals, you ensure the safety and well being of your child and your family.
What to Look Out For?
Up until now, I’ve spent most of my time writing about cribs, because that’s the first product I struggled with as a parent. With many baby product brands talking about your well-being, it becomes difficult to choose genuine non-toxic baby products and preempt how certain products can go terribly wrong. A perfect looking crib can, for instance turn out to be toxic.
Look out for well known toxins such as BPA, phthalates and flame retardants, as they are present in so many baby products, and harmful to baby’s well being and safety. My research on the best non toxic cribs shines more light on this issue.
Many brands today are becoming more conscious about these toxins and concerns of safety and well being, and so we explore a non-toxic chemical-free world together. Some ingredients are sneakily added in to baby products under false pretenses of being “100% Eco”, which is even more worrisome.
Sometimes the beautiful and elegant crib you just bought might not fit in a small space or like me, you might fall short of crib storage. Many baby cribs offer storage on the side or under the crib. Another thing to think about are crib accessories.
You can read much more about all these here on The Safe Parent.

The Joy and Pains of Parenting
In my opinion, parenthood is one of the greatest blessings on earth. It is the highest promotion in the job of life. It comes as a reward for successfully completing some very important phases and is an experience that can completely change your view of everything (got a little philosophical there). But along with the completeness that it brings to life, parenthood also increases our responsibilities many fold. Suddenly in our arms lies a little wonder, completely helpless, waiting to be looked after and loved.
Most of us like to believe that we’d be able to manage the change from being a care-free couple to responsible parents naturally, without having to do any prior preparation. I believe that just a little research in the right direction can work wonders when we’re entering this new world of parenthood. It gives us some key knowledge that is needed before the little one arrives. It can also save us from a lot of mistakes and regrets later on.
