Baby-safe plastic alternatives for your little one!

Baby-safe plastic alternatives for your little one!

If I start to make a list of all the plastic items I see around me sitting in the comfort of my home, I know the count will surprise me. I also know that if you do the same exercise, the sheer number will surprise you too. While we are constantly torn between trying to figure out the extent to which plastic can harm not just our environment but also our daily lives, here’s what we do know:


The Plastic Problem


Plastic is literally all around us and our babies. Their bottles and toys are all made up of them! So is this amount of exposure really safe for your little one? The simple answer is NO.

Studies suggest that chemical classes found in plastic such as bisphenols and phthalates may act as endocrine disruptors, which means they could potentially change the timing of puberty, decrease fertility, increase body fat, and affect the nervous and immune systems. These chemicals can leach from the plastic and into your baby’s food.

Alternatives for your baby


It is particularly important to pay extra attention when you are little bundle is in that stage where they like to put everything in their mouth. However, we’ve got you covered with some easy alternatives that you can use in place of plastic toys:

  • Toys made of organic cotton. They will not only be smooth on the baby’s skin but also much safer.
  • Silicone or Natural wood. Make sure that any dyes, finishes and adhesive used on the wood are non-toxic.
  • Frozen washcloths


Plastic bottle replacements:


  • Glass: They won’t leak toxins and can be warmed easily. A slightly heavier option though.
  • Stainless Steel: Lightweight but can leave a strange aftertaste sometimes..
  • Silicone: Super lightweight and have a baby-friendly texture. Can take a bit of a hunt t to find one of these though!

Now that you have a range of easy options, let’s commit to making the world a better place for your baby! Let’s do our bit and teach our child to do the same.
