New Guide for Safe Baby Shower Registry Features MADE SAFE Products

 
Safe Baby Products Guide graphicIf you’re pregnant or know someone who’s pregnant, you want to be sure to buy only the safest products for mom and the newest member of the family. The problem is that sometimes, it’s not that simple. Many products don’t have labels, and there are confusing claims to navigate, like “green,” “eco,” and “natural”—that actually don’t mean anything at all in terms of standards. (more…)

MADE SAFE® Certified Products:

Bioserie for teethers
Pura Stainless for baby bottles, kids bottles, and sports bottles, and interchangeable lids. Use the code “HealthyBaby15” for 15% off site-wide. Expires 12/31.

Recommended Products, not MADE SAFE Certified:

Abeego – reuseable beeswax wrap that breathes
Bambu Home for eating, drinking, teething
Bee’s Wrap – natural alternative to plastic wrap for food storage
Hydroflask Food Flasks – reusable containers that keep food hot or cold
Kleen Kanteen – drink and food reusable containers

Steely’s Drinkware – resusable stainless steel drinkware
UKonserve – reusable stainless steel containers with leak-proof lids


Tips:
  • Beware the burgeoning organic baby food market packaged in plastic squeezable pouches. While they seem convenient, they are a disaster for the environment and they contain BPA. The layers of liners and coatings make them difficult to recycle.
  • Try making your own organic baby food whenever possible and store in glass jars. Bananas, avocados, and papaya don’t even need to be cooked! Simply mash with a fork.
  • Cooked food can be frozen in metal or silicone ice cube trays, which make the perfect portion for babies starting on solid food.
  • Give your baby natural teethers, like frozen washcloths, cucumber slices, or natural, uncoated wood.
  • Do not heat food or liquids in plastic or pouches. High heat allows plastic to leach chemicals faster. Try glass bowls or steel pots instead.
  • Use glass bottles or stainless steel bottles.
  • Opt for clear silicone nipples for baby bottles and pacifiers. The evidence indicates that clear bottle nipples and pacifiers can likely be used without worry. (Siloxane migration concerns appear to be linked to a combination of heat exposure and food fat content). To be safe, keep yours out of the dishwasher and discard any that are excessively cloudy or worn. Nipples should be replaced every 6 to 8 weeks regardless of appearance. [1],[2]
  • You may be able to completely skip the “sippy” cup. Babies learn to drink quite easily from regular cups. Give it a try!
  • Buy – or better yet, make – non-vinyl bibs; you can reuse a scarf or just tuck in a cotton cloth for this.

Knowing the risks helps you make better choices for you and your family
By partnering together on this valuable guide, MADE SAFE and Plastic Pollution Coalition are combining our collective expertise to offer you the most up-to-date information to promote a healthy start for you and your family.

Maybe you’ve just learned that you’re pregnant, or maybe you have a new baby or growing children. Perhaps you and your partner are just thinking about having a family. Whatever the reason, you may be hearing troubling things about toxic chemicals around you — especially chemicals in plastic and other harmful ingredients or materials in the things you use daily — and how these chemicals affect not just the environment, but also the human body and particularly growing babies, infants, and children.

For example, plastic packaging, plastic containers, plastic toys — the list goes on — are practically everywhere. The concerning thing is that studies show plastic is loaded with chemicals that can harm our health.

We developed this guide to make it easy for parents and would-be parents to:

  • Learn about toxic chemicals in plastics
  • Find tips to reduce use of plastic
  • Gather ideas to avoid other common toxic chemicals
  • Get safe product recommendations

The goal of this guide is to help you make better, safer choices for a healthy and sustainable future.

What you may not realize is that you have enormous economic power to shift the marketplace away from harmful materials. Companies watch what you buy closely, and by supporting companies that are making safer products, you can help make change happen.

There is little regulation requiring that chemicals be tested for safety before they’re included in products, and they can be hard to avoid.

This guide is intended to provide an overview about some of the most common exposures to chemicals in plastics and other ingredients of harm that you can control and avoid with a little information and effort. We can protect our children’s health and send a powerful message to corporations at the same time by purchasing carefully.

Plastics

 

Toxic Chemicals in Plastics graphicIt’s nearly impossible to avoid plastics in our everyday lives, because it’s literally everywhere. Plastic packaging, plastic containers, plastic toys—the list goes on. But the thing is that studies show that plastic is loaded with toxic chemicals that can harm our health.

Phthalates

Phthalates are plastic softeners used to make something less brittle. Because these chemicals are not tightly bound to the other molecules in the plastic, they often “migrate,” moving from the plastic and finding their way into our bodies.

Phthalates are endocrine disruptors that are linked to reproductive malformations in baby boys, reduced fertility, developmental disorders, asthma, and increased allergic reactions. They’ve also been identified by Project TENDR (Targeting Environmental Neuro-Developmental Risks) as “a prime example of chemicals of emerging concern to brain development.”

These chemicals have been banned from cosmetics in the European Union, and some phthalates were banned from children’s toys in the U.S. in 2008. Unfortunately, phthalates are still so commonly used in U.S. products that studies show that these chemicals are present in the urine of 99% of people tested.

BPA & BPA Substitutes

The most famous toxic chemical in plastics is Bisphenol-A, or BPA, which is a hormone disruptor linked to a whole host of health problems. The good news is that the FDA banned the use of BPA in baby bottles and children’s sippy cups in 2012. However, it’s likely still found in many other plastics.

The bad news is that studies are showing that its replacement BPS, another chemical in the Bisphenol family, may be toxic as well, showing some of the same hormone-disrupting effects as BPA. In addition to BPA and BPS, studies show that plastics leech synthetic estrogen mimickers into the food or liquids stored inside them, which are linked to cancer, infertility, heart disease, and other health problems.

PVC

Polyvinyl chloride, or PVC, is widely known as the most toxic plastic for health and the environment. In its production, it releases dioxins, phthalates, vinyl chloride, ethylene dichloride, lead, cadmium and other toxic chemicals. It can leech many of these harmful chemicals into the water or food it’s being used to contain, which is how those chemicals get into our bodies.

Avoiding It

The good news is that there are lots of options out there for reducing the amount of plastic you and your family come into contact with. And remember that every step you take to get rid of toxic chemicals can have a positive impact on your health by reducing your “body burden”, or the amount of chemicals present in your body.

Some ideas to start:

  • Opt for stainless steel bottles, like these from Pura Stainless that can work for the whole family, from babies to kids to adults.
  • Look for food products stored in glass over plastic and store leftovers at home in glass or ceramic containers as well.
  • Avoid plastic labeled with the recycle symbol #3 is made of PVC.
  • Try not to heat food or liquids in plastic or pouches. High heat allows plastic to leech chemicals faster.
