About two years ago, I saw the drama film 12 Years A Slave. It is an adaptation of an 1853 slave narrative memoir of Solomon Northup. He was a New York State-born free African American man kidnapped and sold into slavery.
I looked for its book version and was all the more moved. Indeed, the widely talked about slavery primarily of African and African American in the USA in the 18th and 19th century was so brutal.
The treatment of slaves that time was so degrading. Whipping and sexual rape were a common practice. One duty slaves needed to finish was cotton picking, and those who picked less got a whipping.
From the film, I also learned that cotton was hard to harvest. Thus, perhaps the reason that pure cotton is way expensive than other kinds of clothes.
Only pure cotton for our boys
Despite the fact pure cotton can be more expensive than other fabrics, we still prefer the former for our boys, especially for the two little ones. For one, it is easier to wash and care for than other fabrics. Add to that, cotton is soft, absorbent, and breathable, making it the healthy choice.
I likewise like the fact that because cotton is breathable, it doesn’t retain odor from sweat. I also find cotton to last longer than other fabrics thus, we save money by not buying new clothes.
Only organic cotton for our boys
Recently though, I learned that commercially grown cotton is considered the world’s dirtiest crop. This is due to its heavy use of pesticides. These pesticides are important to cotton farming as they protect the crops.
But we all know for a fact that pesticides not only disrupt the balance of nature in the field. They can be real harmful especially to those that come in contact with them. Many have been documented about the serious problems pesticides brought to the environment worldwide.
Its harmful effects also reach the humans who come in contact with the cotton sprayed with insecticides. This is because the harmful chemicals from those pesticides are easily trapped in the cotton threads. And our babies who mostly wear cotton are the most affected.
Thus, our personal choice to support organic farming is crucial. Since I learned about this fact, I now opt for products that are 100% organic.

I further learned that companies that use organic products follow strict guidelines in the farming process. This is to protect the world’s health and its natural eco-system.
And I am happy to learn that our favorite baby brand now has a new line of 100% organic baby clothes.
Tiny Buds Organics Collection
All its baby clothes are made of 100% organic cotton grown in responsible farms. No doubt as well that each product is made with love.
Make a difference
As I put our SumoSam to sleep, I carefully caress his nose, head, and back. His skin is so soft. And the problem with such soft skin is that it can be delicate and vulnerable to irritation.
We all know that an infant’s skin is thinner than an adult’s. Thus, it is crucial that we use products formulated for the baby’s delicate skin.
As a responsible parent, I choose pure, safe, and organic for our clothing and other cotton textile needs. This is because organic cotton is grown without pesticides or any artificial fertilizer. And the brand I opt for our baby is only Tiny Buds Organic Collection. I find it the safest and softest choice for our Sumosam’s delicate skin.
Your shopping choice can make a difference, too. You may also opt for pure organic cotton for your little ones. It’s my personal decision and I hope you see as well the good side of shopping for certified organic cotton. It is after all for your family’s health and to protect our planet, too. And should you choose a brand to trust, no doubt Tiny Buds Organic Collection is the safest and softest choice among all other brands. This momi has tried and tested it already.
