In order to maintain health and promote good development, it is essential to provide a healthy room for baby without toxic substances. A few simple gestures, such as the choice of mattresses, furniture and painting, the verification of insulation or the use of natural household products will help to protect baby from possible allergies, irritations and respiratory problems.

If environmental pollution is a daily concern for everyone, it becomes a priority when it comes to protecting babies before and after birth. When we talk about pollution, we always think about the outside air. However, our interiors can also be impacted by a polluted air, which can cause respiratory problems, allergies and other health that we would be happy to do.

Fortunately, there are several ways to reduce this harmfulness to ensure that babies have clean air and optimal health. Need a boost? Here are 7 tips to offer a healthy room to your little one.

Avoid natural materials

If a baby is on the way, his room is probably on the road or already perfectly prepared. Of course, it is a central element in an infant’s life, since it is in this room that he will spend long hours of sleep during his first months. This is why the materials that make up the furniture of the baby room must be carefully chosen! It is advisable to choose healthy and ecological paintings for the baby room, as well as furniture from natural materials. Avoid ecological wood and water painting, as proposed by the full scalable baby room Lit'bellule, 100% made in France from environmentally friendly, traceable and non-toxic materials.

Move the room in advance

Start the development of the baby room as soon as possible before birth. Thus, VOCs and toxic products that come from new furniture and fresh paint will have several months to leave the room completely. Bonus tip: if you can, open the boxes from the furniture to the outside so that they release their harmful erasers before being mounted and installed in the baby cocoon. But all this is not useful if you choose ecological baby furniture asthefull scalable baby roomLt'bellule!

Opt for a mattress and ecolabellized bed linen

In order to ensure that a baby has nights filled with beautiful dreams and without pollution, the choice of an ecological mattress is essential, at the risk of exposing your child to the inhalation of volatile organic compounds during sleep. Ideally, opt for a mattress made of organic cotton, ecolabellized and guaranteed without toxic substances, like mattress Dream of Libellule. On the other hand, a mattress of good quality is nothing without a bed linen at its height! Station with noxious treatments that often embody fabrics and other textiles. Here too, turn to one cloth-housse in natural matter, preferably certified by the Oeko-Tex label.

Opt for natural household products

So that baby can evolve in a healthy environment, parents don't harm the household. No question of making a cross on this good habit, however, household products are major vectors of harmful chemicals in our homes. In order not to expose baby, make sure to use labeled ecological products or opt for just as effective natural solutions such as white vinegar!

Damage to the mites

The rugs, doudous, plaids and other downy companions have the odds in the baby rooms, and for cause they are soft and comforting. Unfortunately, these qualities have not escaped the mites who love to stay there! During the first months of your toddler, limit textile decorations to the necessary to avoid an allergic reaction to these invasive arachnides.

Ban the cigarette at home

The queen of indoor pollution is still and always the cigarette and its smoke filled with toxic products: formaldehyde, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, hydrocarbons... Even if you loved ones smoke in another room, cigarette smoke impregnates your home and harms baby's breathing, in addition to yours. The only effective solution to eliminate this internal pollution factor is to take it out!

Heating, insulation and ventilation: keys to a healthy room

A poorly isolated and/or poorly ventilated space is a real eldorado for molds! To prevent these from developing in your baby’s room and causing respiratory disorders, plan a check of your walls, windows and ventilations to check that everything is in order and does not present any risk of cold or humidity. Enjoy it to take a look at your heating and control its proper operation: a deficient heating can emit carbon monoxide.

These few tips are accessible to all parents and easy to put in place. They will allow you to offer a healthy and serene environment, away from pollution, allergy and irritation!
