Anyone who has ever seen rashes and allergic reactions on a babies skin knows the anxiety that comes along with the observation - and the sense of how delicate a young baby really is. It makes sense, if you consider the fact that our skin is our largest organ and biologically our first line of defense… our protective barrier … and with all the chemicals in various different products (i.e. clothing, plastic toys etc), environmental toxins and pollutants, harmful bacteria, viruses, parasites, pathogens, antigens and UV radiation attacking it, babies skin is busy enough…
This is why we decided to source top market, 100 % organic toys and….
We are delighted to introduce our fantastic range of organic cuddly buddies at www.naturalnursery.ie

Why organic toys?
We all know how much babies love their cuddly toys, how much they love to snuggle them at night, how they become their closest companion no matter where they go (read up on transitional objects here for a bit of psychology), but also how they love to suck, chew and bite them constantly.
Here's why you should always opt for organic fabrics like cotton, wool or silk if you have the choice!
"With an increasing awareness of the amount of chemical usage in conventional cotton production and its impact on our health and the environment, more people are searching for alternatives such as organic clothing made from certified organic cotton or hemp clothing."
"Synthetic or man-made fabrics include fabrics such as rayon, acetate, nylon, acrylic, polyester, fleece, olefin, spandex, lastex and kevlar. They are made from chemically produced fibres […] including some manufactured from natural materials like cellulose and wood pulp.
Most synthetic fibres are manufactured from polymer-based petrochemical materials. It is an energy intensive process requiring large amounts of crude oil, coal or natural gas. It releases toxic emissions including volatile organic compounds (VOC), particulate matter, and acid gases such as hydrogen chloride which can cause respiratory problems."
