So why use organic cotton for your baby? When you buy organic cotton, you are buying the cotton in a form that has not been touched with toxic chemicals during the growth or manufacturing process.
In the normal cotton growing process, pesticides and poisonous fertilizers are used, which is not only harmful to the soil, but to the farmers who grow it, the workers who pick it and to the end consumer.
In non-organic cotton, these chemicals will actually stay and be present in the finished cotton fabric. These chemicals and pesticides are then transferred to your baby through the respiratory system and also through the skin, which is the largest and most absorbent organ in the body.
