Organic Skin Care is Better for Babies and Mums

2012 February 27
by Angels Avenue

Organic Skin Care for BabiesBabies come into our world with the most delicate skin; keep that skin soft and free of rashes by using organic baby skincare. Many non-organic cosmetics on the market contain harsh chemical ingredients that can cause irritating rashes and should never be found in baby products in the first place. Organic baby skincare products do not contain any of the harmful additives or artificial dyes that can lead to allergic reactions. For mothers who choose to use an organic baby bottom cream, there is no concern about the dreaded nappy rash. Baby skin stays soft, well protected and in a tip top condition.

Additionally, many non-organic baby skincare products contain ingredients that come from crops which have been genetically modified and treated with chemicals, including potentially dangerous pesticides. Consider what you would like to have close to your baby’s skin. Choosing organic baby skin care range as an alternative to the big brand names ensures that you are giving your baby only the best and gentlest ingredients, and you are avoiding harsh chemicals. Organic ingredients come only from natural plant and fruit sources, and are guaranteed not to contain pesticides. Such chemicals can not only irritate baby’s delicate skin, but cause other long term negative side effects. read more…

Why You Should Breastfeed Longer

2011 April 5
by Angels Avenue

Breastfeeding babyHuman breast milk is nature’s perfect food for infants. It promotes health, prevents disease and minimises health care and feeding expenses. The World Health Organization, the NHS and many other organisations have adopted policies to promote the benefits of breastfeeding for both mothers and their children. They advocate exclusive breastfeeding from birth up to six months, then supplemented breastfeeding up to two years or more.

What makes breast milk so ideal is the fact that it is easy to digest, and it has basically the right amount of water, fat, sugar and protein that babies need to grow and develop. Antibodies are handed down from mother to child during breastfeeding. Colostrum, the milk produced in the first few days after birth, is particularly rich in immunoglobulins, which help prevent prevalent childhood illnesses such as diarrhoea and pneumonia.

There are so many advantages to breastfeeding. You will get to enjoy a special bond with your baby, knowing that you’re giving him the best possible nutrition. You also save money since you don’t have to buy infant formula. There are so many health benefits for you and your child. In some studies, it has been found that mothers who breastfeed lower their risk of developing health problems such as type 2 diabetes, and ovarian and breast cancer. Also, women who breastfeed are able to return to their pre-pregnancy weight a lot faster and enjoy lower cases of obesity.

Breastfeeding leads to a lifetime of excellent health. According to the WHO, there is evidence that people who were breastfed perform better in intelligence tests, have lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and lower rates of obesity and type 2 diabetes. It is also interesting to know that women who were breastfed as babies, tend to have a naturally positive attitude to breastfeeding and would choose it as their preferred feeding method for their newborn babies.

Though any amount of breastfeeding has a valuable effect, the longer you breastfeed, the longer the protection lasts and thus, the bigger the benefits. Breastfeeding your child after one year and beyond is beneficial to both you and your child. One of the best ways to help toddlers develop emotionally is the closeness and availability of the mother through breastfeeding. Also, similar to babies, toddlers receive a lot of health benefits from breastfeeding, as your milk continues to provide vitamins and immunity boosters, and guard your children from illnesses and allergies. read more…
