Choosing Paint for Your Baby’s Nursery

eco friendly paint


By Michelle LaRowe.

Painting the nursery is a right of passage for expecting parents. Soon-to-be mom and dad’s spend countless hours choosing the perfect color, shade and hue for their baby’s bedroom.

For dads who are concerned about the safety of painting with an expectant mom in the home, they can worry no more.

Green, organic or otherwise known as eco-friendly paints are becoming more and more popular. In fact, many expecting parents are now choosing strictly green paints when it comes to colorizing their baby’s nursery. They are doing this for the simple fact that these paints are now billed as safe for pregnant women (some brands even put it on their label).

So what makes these paints safe? Unlike their traditional counterparts, organic paints do not have harsh solvents (otherwise known as volatile organic compounds -VOCs) in them. Solvents give paint their texture and consistency and make it easy to work with. As traditional paint dries, VOCs are released into the air (this is the fresh paint smell that often causes dizziness and nausea to those whom inhale it).

In green paints, these harsh solvents are replaced with non-toxic, synthetic alternatives that reduce or eliminate VOCs altogether. As a result, the fresh paint smell, which is caused by traditional paint “fumes”, exists no more.

So when you’re making choices about painting your soon-to-be baby’s nursery, consider using a green paint. Your partner will certainly thank you!

I would just like to say how much I love Bonjour Baby! They are really fantastic! I recently emailed some about baby care to some other mums in my parenting group and now my whole parenting group are all devoted Bonjour Baby fans! I’m just so glad your website is available, thank you again and keep up the great work! — Amalia, Wakerley QLD
My three-year-old had a seemingly ‘endless’ runny nose with watery eyes, sneezing and chest congestion. Thanks to your article on homeopathy for babies we were able to naturally treat her condition. She is now perfectly fine and we use those natural remedies on ourselves too when the seasons changes. Thank you very much for your quality articles. — Alexandre
Last fall, I was fortunate enough to be introduced to Bonjour Baby via a giveaway over at the ecoxpo. They had a great display and hosted a giveaway and I won an organic cotton mini bunny. It was perfect timing too, as my little girl was just born. He loves his new cuddly friend. I haven't gone back to use any other resource platform again. Your articles are very high quality and I love your selection of products too. The Bonjour Baby products are truly amazing! I always look forward to your new articles and products. — Millie, Sydney
Thank you Bonjour Baby, you have done a fantastic job. We discovered you from a friend and you have inspired us to live a bit greener once our little one arrived a few months ago. My sister and I are continuously looking for your new articles, as we want what is best for our bubs. So thank you again for all these quality articles. — Magda and Jenny, Alstonville
Every time my little girl has her bath, after using your products (we have the entire range) our whole family would comment on how our little ones smells! We all love your products, cannot give enough praise for them. The quality of your articles are also a great resource for the new parents wanting to raise a sustainable baby like us! Much love — Sangeeta, Neutral Bay
I just wanted to let you know that our kanoe has basically saved my life and my marriage. It has changed our lives completely. My daughter now takes at least 3 naps a day! Before I had this Kanoe I was never able to get her to sleep except for when she would fall asleep on me nursing (...) I just wish I had known about it earlier. Thank you for making our life a little easier :) — Megan Williams
