You’ve probably heard lots of people talking about how they are ‘going organic’ but did you know that there are actually a whole range of proven benefits to changing your lifestyle to one that embraces organic food and products? Buying organic food can bring health benefits to both you and your family and can also help to nurture and support the environment as a whole. And of course the range of organic options doesn’t just stop at food. Nowadays there are a wealth of organic products available from gentle baby bath to bedding and even mattresses.  At Custard & Crumble we’re passionate about promoting organic products and in this blog we’ll explain why! Organic materials can help allergy sufferers We know that you want the very best start in life for your little one, and of course their health will be your priority. That’s why we’re very proud to stock our super soft organic bedding products from the environmentally friendly company The Little Green Sheep. With their cot bed mattresses made from certified organic wool and cotton and their super soft bedding sets made with 100% organic cotton both you can your baby can rest easy. Organic bedding creates a pure sleeping environment and unlike many cot bed mattresses they are free from chemical fire retardant sprays or adhesives. They are also naturally hypoallergenic – making them perfect for allergy sufferers. Organic food is ideal for baby-friendly weaning Weaning can often be a stressful time for new mums but it can also be wonderful seeing your child learning to experience and enjoy a range of healthy tastes and textures. That’s why we’ve come up with some delicious and tasty weaning ideas for you to try out! But to really optimise your baby’s diet why not try buying organic produce. Organic fruit and veg is free of nasty pesticides and damaging chemicals and is usually grown by suppliers who are sympathetic to respecting the environment and preserving traditional farming methods.  It is also important to note that by buying organic dairy and meat products you are also supporting better animal welfare and kinder attitudes towards animal rearing. Organic products are perfect for your baby’s sensitive skin (and for yours too!) Your baby’s skin is adorably smooth and clear and we want to help you keep it that way! Many baby products can be full of unpleasant chemicals such as parabens and can actually be quite harsh on little one’s sensitive skin. That’s why we love the gorgeous products from The Green People Company which manage to be both luxurious and kind to your skin. They create their products by combining traditional herbs and plants such as lavender, aloe, shea and even yucca! These are ideal for all babies and are especially good for children and adults with skin conditions such as eczema. In fact we love them so much that we’re offering 15% off with the code CRUMBLE15. As you can see there are so many reasons that we love living the organic life, and we think that our health, skin and overall feeling of wellbeing have really improved since we went organic. We’d love to hear about your organic product recommendations so let’s have a chat on Facebook or Twitter!
