Having a baby is a life-changer. It gives you a whole other perspective on why you wake up every day. These days, we’re bombarded with mixed messages about how to parent “the right way.” It’s easy to buy into advice from the media, relatives, and other parents and start to worry that we’re doing something wrong.

Here are the tips to raise a natural baby using affordable, eco-friendly methods and products without breaking the bank-

1) Eat organic fruits, vegetables and produce

Especially if you’re breastfeeding, your child will absorb the nutrients from your body so be mindful of what you’re putting into it. As your child starts eating solids, buy local produce, use organic baby cookbooks and experiment with recipes that will nourish your growing baby best.

2) If you are bottle feeding your child, avoid plastic

Use BPA free or glass bottles to ensure no nasties can drain off the bottle into the baby’s body. The same goes for BPA free containers once we move onto solids.

3) Take care of what your baby is wearing

Natural fibres ensure our baby isn’t exposed to harmful chemicals or pesticides in synthetic products. Orgassm Organic baby range protects their sensitive skin, supports breathability and provides silky soft comfort for the eco-friendly baby.

4) Look out for toys made from natural materials

Plastic toys are not only unfriendly to the environmentally, but can pose potential harm and threats to your baby. Look out for toys made from cotton, wool or wood to ensure safe child play.

5) Get out in nature

Of course getting out of the house in the first few months is not always easy, but consider some lovely walks around the block or in your local park to clear your mind and get some fresh air for you and your bub. There’s nothing like a cuddle in the sunshine.
