Cleaning products and children's health

I’m not big into cleaning so it’s funny that Im writing about cleaning products right now...


As I unpacked my delivery from @natural_collection today. I thought back to when I made the swap to eco friendly laundry and cleaning products. 🧼 🧹 🧼

My middle son was 12 weeks old and after a hospital admission for bronchiolitis, it became apparent he had developed rhinitis and eczema....most likely as a result of the antibiotics given to protect his chest.

In an effort to tackle the copious amount of bogies he was producing, I did my research and soon became aware of air pollution in the home and how certain chemicals can cause allergies, respiratory symptoms and skin conditions like eczema.

I also read about the hygiene hypothesis and realised my children needed more dirt in their lives.

I recognised living in a heavily sanitised home (not that mine was!!) wasn’t conducive to the development of their immune systems so I introduced some changes.
