After we find it:
A manufacturer could take organically grown cotton and dye it with toxic colorants and then treat it with formaldehyde to prevent wrinkling. Organic standards for clothing are still not as clear-cut as they are for food. That said, buying organic cotton garments greatly reduces the likelihood that you are exposing your baby to endocrine disruptors and carcinogens when you lovingly wrap her in a brand new swaddle blanket.
You should continue to wash all clothing and blankets using non-toxic laundry detergent before use, preferably multiple times but really, does anyone actually have time for that?! When buying organic cotton clothing, make sure the company has a third-party certification to back up their claim. In the US, solid organic certifications include:. Under the Nile offers a widely available, relatively affordable selection of GOTS-certified organic baby clothes, blankets, and toys.
I love that Under the Nile is a family business that is genuinely committed to ethical production, including making sure their employees receive a living wage, education, and health care. The Under the Nile basics are perfect for stocking a non-toxic, organic nursery before your baby is born. CastleWare is one of the most transparent organic clothing companies out there.
CastleWare offers a range of clothing items and the design of the clothing is simple and understated. I often struggle to find clothing for my kids that is organic but also cute but not cutesie.

Buy now from Target. Gimme the Good Stuff contacted Gap with a long list of questions, but have not heard back from them for any confirmation on the production of their organic clothing.
One problem with this claim? There is no such thing as organic bamboo. Thank you for this article I really wish I had known all of this sooner. I have emailed carters about their baby clothes and they say they do not use any toxic chemicals in the production of their clothes. They sell gots certified baby clothing and they have sales which make it a lot more affordable. Thank you again for this article. Thanks for this information! What about Burts Bees organic baby clothing line? Hoping to hear back from you!
All three have such cute options and claim to be organic. Do you regularly update to include new brands? As moms, we care about our babies health more than anything else. I recently bought these baby bibs in Amazon, I would really recommend them to all the moms out there.
What are your thoughts on Lyocell fabrics for clothes and sheets, mattresses pads, etc, for that matter. People are marketing these as eco-friendly, etc, but I am wary and would love to know your opinion. Could they be good alternatives to organic cotton? One site said that Lyocell was more eco-friendly than cotton even organically grown cotton. While the manufacturing process for lyocell and some of the newer ways bamboo is turned into fabric, too are gentler on the environment, they both still use chemicals that sensitive people if not all of us!
Many companies label rayon fabrics as bamboo. Rayon is made from plant cellulose, and the cellulose can come from a variety of sources, but the process of turning cellulose into fabric is highly toxic. I have come across this brand for Bamboo clothing in Canada called Boody wear, they are launching the baby line in August and wanted to know what you think of it?
I really enjoy the underwear and leggings for myself but want to know what you think of the product for my children? I am so disappointed because I had ordered clothing from them in the past and it never had a smell.
Now, it even had a GOTS certification and it was puzzling for me to smell the strong fishy like odor. Do you have any updated information on this topic? Questions about GMO, Oke-tex standard for dyes and truly organic? I recently discovered PACT: I ordered a shirt for myself, but saw they also have baby clothes. They seem pretty good, so consider researching them and adding them to the list. U definitely got unique ideas here.
