A Growing Trend on The Rise: Sustainable Kids Wear

Let’s face it - fashion is changing every single day. Not only regarding trends, prints, and labels, but also regarding materials. In times when almost every industry is adopting environmentally-friendly standards, kids wear is one of the new industries that are adopting sustainable fashion. Knowing that our kids grow too fast, buying them clothes that will pile up in the washing machine and then be thrown away is an environmentally-friendly concern on its own. Sustainable fashion is seeking a shift towards sustainability - and is the new buzzword in kids clothing. On the other hand, sustainable fashion is a trend that is picking up everywhere.

THE BENEFITS OF SWADDLING BABIES

Most babies enjoy being snugly wrapped in the warmth and security of a blanket. When you swaddle your baby, he or she experiences a feeling similar to the days when the womb provided security and comfort. Although parents are encouraged by pediatricians to use swaddling as a means of calming infants, parents are also cautioned always to employ correct methods of swaddling so as not to cause more damage than good. Here are 3 of the many benefits of swaddling babies:  Swaddling may improve sleep. Newborns sleep for about 16 hours per day at periodic intervals of 3-4 hours. Swaddling may increase the hours of REM (rapid eye movement) sleep that infants get daily. This state of deeper sleep may reduce the likelihood of your baby becoming fully awake when roused, which in turn results in parents making fewer trips to their baby's crib. So swaddling benefits babies and parents as well — more sleep for baby, more sleep for mom and dad! Swaddling may soothe a crying baby. This particular benefit compels many parents to give swaddling a try. Imagine a technique that gets your baby to stop crying in just a few folds! Studies have shown that swaddling...

It is important to pay close attention when designing a child’s bedroom as the color is an important element. Color is also known to cause an impact on an individual's mood, learning behavior, and emotional state. HOW COLORS STIMULATE A BABY’S BRAIN? The nerve cells in a newborn are disorganized and not completely connected. Even though their brain perceives all five senses, it still needs stimulation to develop and grow. Monochrome colors and patterns are necessary to stimulate a baby’s brain. The best colors that help stimulate a baby’s vision are black and white.
