While organic products are better for people of all ages, babies and young children are at higher risk of chemical exposure.
They’re smaller and have thinner, more permeable skin.
And once they develop a curiosity, some mobility and an oral fixation…there’s little us parents can do to keep them safe at all times.
But by choosing organic baby products, we can remove the toxic chemicals found in many clothing, skin care, and even baby toy products.
There are many organic baby products online, but as with anything in this world of greenwashing, not all are as innocent as your baby.
So, what are the best organic baby products?
We’ve rounded up some carefully vetted natural baby products for all areas of newborn parentage—everything from dressing, to sleeping, to playing, to keeping baby’s bottom as smooth as, well…a baby’s bottom.
Head to the end of the article to see everything we considered when giving birth to this list of products.

In addition to organic blankets, Finn + Emma has some seriously coo-worthy natural baby products.
Is there anything more adorable than baby clothes?!
Prepare to pack those changing table drawers because Finn + Emma have it all: pajamas, footies, bibs, tops, rompers, pants, dresses, bodysuits, and basics like onesies.
The clothes are made with 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton processed with non-toxic, eco friendly dyes.
Even the snaps are lead and nickel-free.
To encourage a more inclusive model of parenting, many clothing pieces are designed to be gender-neutral.
We like Finn + Emma; Vogue magazine likes Finn + Emma; Parents around the globe like Finn + Emma.
We feel it’s pretty safe to say you probably will, too.
The organic baby brand is socially responsible, environmentally conscious, and makes us feel better about getting babies dressed—even when a tantrum is involved.
The company was female founded and most of their clothes are ethically produced in India by teams of female-artisans. They aim to financially uplift women in these communities.
Finn + Emma also steer clear of manufacturing chemicals associated with pollution and health problems, such as PVC, acrylic, esters, and petroleum-based materials.

If you’re looking for organic baby eco friendly products to foster a budding eco-fashionista, check out Loulou Lollipop’s organic clothing.
Everything is so cute you’ll wish they catered to adult sizes!
Going beyond aesthetics, the bodysuits, pants, rompers, and sleepers are made with some of the best sustainable fabrics, including organic cotton and TENCEL lyocell.
Lyocell is great for regulating temperature and organic cotton is perfect for sensitive skin, so these clothes are some of the cutest and comfiest around.
All clothing is produced in an OEKO-Tex certified factory and printed digitally (which conserves water) with AZO-free dyes.
The sister-owned Canadian company creates fun-loving mom, baby, and budget-approved products.

For all things fabric, Coyuchi creates natural organic baby products.
That includes a few organic blanket options (quilted, flannel, honeycomb, matelasse) to provide parents with peace of mind—or as close as one can get when awake at 3:30 am.
For a sort of wearable blanket, they make bib burp cloths that are hand embroidered with either an elephant, whale, giraffe, bunny, or hedgehog.
These bibs are also 100% organic cotton and ethically produced in India.
Getting some shut-eye isn’t guaranteed with a little one, but it can be supported by conscious and comfy organic mattress protectors, linen sheets, fair trade blankets, and eco friendly comforters from one of our top blanket companies for adults and babies: Coyuchi.
Or, when sleep doesn’t happen, at least you can stay semi-awake and sustainable in a comfy eco friendly robe?
Between the recycling of old Coyuchi linens and supporting regenerative agriculture projects, this is one bedding company contributing to happy dreams for us and our planet.
All products are sent in eco-friendly materials and every purchase means an environmental donation for 1% for the Planet.
Their muslin cotton swaddles are perfect for snuggling and come in a few different nature-inspired colors (blueberry, pumpkin spice, eggplant, moss green, cream, and more).
There’s no shortage of positive reviews for this Etsy shop. Just one look at the comments and reviews of the blankets alone and you’ll see the words “cozy,” “comfy,” and “quality”…a lot.
When it comes to organic baby products made in the USA, you can’t beat sustainable swaddles that are handmade in a small North Carolina studio.
Don’t forget all Etsy orders are sent using carbon-neutral shipping!
Certified organic baby products provide that added assurance you’re really providing your baby with the best.
That’s what you’ll get with the receiving blankets and bibs from Jazzy Organics.
For those of us who don’t spend our free time studying organic cotton, GOTS is the creme de la creme of certifications.
It also means that the cotton, along with any snaps and zippers, is free of residues and contaminants like amines, pesticides, heavy metals, formaldehyde, lead, and nickel.
“Pure organic cotton has it all,” which is why Jazzy Organics uses it exclusively in their entire line. It’s better for our planet, their Turkish cotton farmers, and babies snuggling up for an afternoon nap.
Plus, organic cotton is durable and gets softer over time—meaning you can keep that baby blanket for future children, grandchildren, or pass it along to another set of parents.
To keep our planet a little comfier, Jazzy Organics and their manufacturing partners recycle what they can during manufacturing.

Meri Meri makes playtime merrier.
They can equip any nursery with organic baby toys like rattles, stuffed animals, dolls, mobiles, and musical toys—all of which are consciously crafted.
Organic cotton isn’t just fashionable, it’s also fun. It’s what you’ll see most in Meri Meri’s toys, along with wooden rings and the odd elastic band.
Safety is assured too, every toy either meets or exceeds American, European, and Canadian safety standards.
Meridithe Stuart-Smith is an award-winning entrepreneur and the founder-president of Meri Meri.
She partners with design and illustration experts around the globe to create fun products for “a world of party and play!”

In addition to USA-made baby gift baskets, they have a range of individual toys available for purchase, including wooden teething toys, rattles, and ring toys (mostly from the partner brand Plan Toy).
They’re also a one-stop-shop for bath toys and organic stuffed dolls, rattles, animals, and teddy bears.

Momgaroo’s machine washable cloth diapers are made from some of our top sustainable fabrics—like 100% organic hemp!
For a reusable diaper that’s a little more sturdy and leak-proof (but not completely natural) they make a version that combines hemp with organic charcoal bamboo (that’s hypoallergenic, breathable, and moisture-wicking) and a waterproof PUL outer layer.
This USA-based Etsy shop gets to the bottom (literally) of the most necessary of all organic baby care products.
As they say, “mother knows best.” Founder-operator Veronica handmakes the diapers with a few assistants and even recruits the help of her kiddos to model them.
When it comes to organic diapers, those made with love by a mother get a big thumbs up in our book.
What’s the baby equivalent to organic clothing?
Why, organic diapers, of course!
The outside is made with an equally-impressive fabric: recycled plastic bottles that are OEKO-TEX certified and treated with waterproof TPU.
Did we mention how cute these diaper exteriors are?!
You can also choose a biodegradable bamboo viscose diaper liner that can be disposed of after use (but not in the toilet!).
If you remember our deep dive into the compostable vs biodegradable discussion, you’ll realize biodegradable does not equal compostable, so you still can’t toss these liners in the backyard compost pile.
While best to minimize the use of these, for occasional use on-the-go, they’re still better than alternative single-use diapers.
An exploding diaper was the inspiration for Esembly’s reusable diapers. Quite the cringe-worthy image, isn’t it?
Liz Turrigano and a few of her friends are responsible for these leak-proof washable nappies. They’re responsibly manufactured in China and Pakistan and shipped using 100% recycled and recyclable materials.
Cleaning up stinky diapers and a stinky planet, Esembly even has a unique resell and recycle program to keep diapers out of the landfill. Don’t worry, it isn’t as gross as it might sound.
They’re also a contributor to 1% for the Planet.

By filling them with ingredients you could literally eat.
Here’s what they offer: organic talc-free baby powder, baby butt butter (organic diaper cream), calm balm (aromatherapy for all ages), baby butt spray (diaper changing spray), organic baby wash, organic baby oil, organic baby bath tea, and organic castile soap for babies.

Founder Jillian makes everything herself, with love and without dyes, synthetic ingredients, palm oil, and fragrances.
All are made with pure, natural, organic, cruelty-free, unrefined, and mostly fair trade ingredients. Most items are also vegan, though some contain organic milk or beeswax.

Earth Mama was started by… well, an Earth Mama. Founder, nurse, mother, and “plant lady” Melinda wanted to educate people about the toxicity of everyday products while providing healing herbal alternatives.
The brand is driven by a few core beliefs: “do no harm, nature is our pharmacy, education empowers, honor the body’s ingenuity, and mamas need one another.“
Their definition of mama is beautifully inclusive, too, as they proudly include men.
Aside from raising awareness for trans pregnancy, they also do a lot to shed light on the world of post-Partum depression to let mothers know it’s completely natural.
The all natural organic baby products are shipped in BPA-free PET bottles and jars. This is the safest plastic available and is readily recyclable.
This is chosen over glass for safety reasons (someone was cut when a glass jar of nipple butter broke in transit).
Garden to Bottle is what you get in the baby-friendly organic hair care products by bāeo.
These cruelty-free formulations don’t contain endocrine-disrupting compounds. Instead, everything is made with recognizable, safe, and sustainable ingredients—many of which are USDA-certified organic.
Because a new baby doesn’t require a million hair care products, their line is simple: bare suds can be used as a shampoo or body wash.
For those figuring out how to have a zero waste baby out there, bāeo offers refills of the aluminum bottles.
bāeo is a mom-owned brand that uses ethical sourcing and plant-based ingredients to produce organic baby hair products that go way beyond lush locks (err… shiny scalps for some babies).
They partner with organizations that supply livelihood opportunities to women in need—including Bears for Humanity, one of our favorite organic baby toy brands.
To support the planet, they use recycled, recyclable, and reusable packaging materials and eco-conscious manufacturing practices.
Let’s not forget they donate 1% of their profits to a disadvantaged baby fund and to 1% for the Planet.
Bath time is better for the earth with Babo Botanicals’ line of natural baby products.
They have a few baby-safe shampoo options depending on your baby’s skin needs: sensitive baby shampoo, newborn baby wash, and shampoo, and moisturizing baby shampoo.
They’re cruelty-free and free of many of the toxic chemicals you don’t want anywhere near that kissable head (i.e. phthalates, dyes, MEA, DEA, allergens, and SLS)
Family comes first, naturally.
And for your natural family, only the best natural and organic ingredients will do.
This Certified B Corp sets itself apart by using the best botanical ingredients that can be used by even those with sensitive skin or allergies.

In addition to other baby and bee-friendly body care products, the range of different scented baby soap from Lemonbuzzzsoap has us buzzing.
We appreciate the short and understandable ingredient lists of these zero waste bars.
Here’s one as an example: organic extra virgin olive oil, organic virgin coconut oil, organic palm oil, distilled water, organic argan. organic aloe vera, grapefruit seed extract, +LOVE.
They’re all non-GMO, cruelty-free, and vegan, but note they do contain RSPO-certified palm oil.
While they come in different scents, you’ll never see synthetic fragrances.
Mrs. Lemonbuzzz is a mother, urban farmer, and the owner of this Washington-based Etsy shop.
We prefer soap made the old-fashioned way, and so does she.
Her soaps are made using a cold-process method using organic and locally grown ingredients.
These organic baby bath products are zero waste and actually wrapped in up-cycled plantable seed paper with flowers especially beneficial to honey bees.
Every purchase supports their organic farm and a nonprofit dedicated to bee rescue.
Save the bees and your baby, all in one bar!
Grab a sustainably-sourced rubber ducky and Earth Mama’s natural baby wash to turn bath time into a breeze.
There are three varieties available: Simply Non-Scents Castile Baby Wash, Calming Lavender Castile Baby Wash, and Sweet Orange Castile Baby Wash. The first two score ONE on EWG’s Skin Deep Cosmetics Database—the safest you can get!
All three are made with certified organic herbs and oils, absent any yucky ingredients like phthalates.
Just be careful around the eyes, because Castile-based soap is not “no tear”.
They do also contain vegetable glycerin which is commonly derived from palm trees. We’ll be double-checking with the brand to see what their stance on palm oil is.
While the packaging is plastic, it is of course BPA-free.
We’re having some serious deja vu here, and it’s not because this is the eighth dirty diaper we’ve changed today. It’s because Earth Mama has earned a spot on this list once again.
This list is like a hybrid between sustainable and ethical fashion and raising a zero waste baby, and these are our ABCs for picking out the very best organic options:
Organic materials were the main priority here. 99% of the time this means certified organic cotton, although some of our other top eco materials like hemp and TENCEL lyocell were also used.
As your baby is likely to put any and everything in their mouth, we also only looked for organic baby products that were non-toxic, down to the dyes and coating.
For some of the baby body care products, we checked for those that are mostly (preferably entirely) vegan, always cruelty-free, and don’t use palm oil (or as a last resort use certified sustainable palm oil).
Supply chain and labor practices:
Many of these companies are owned by women, or mothers, meaning they’re invested in keeping everything truly ethical. Most products are made with love via super small supply chains and carefully selected partner factories.
Green business practices:
Beyond using the best organic materials, we squeal with excitement over recycled/recyclable shipping, resale and recycling programs, and manufacturing practices that limit chemical use.
Community & charitable giving:
Not only are these natural baby products great for a baby shower, but they gift our planet and local/global communities with purchases that incorporate donations to environmental and social causes.
You cut out wine, coffee, you ate healthily, and removed (or at least minimized) exposure to all things potentially toxic to your baby in utero.
You did all that so you could produce an organic baby—why stop short by exposing them to unhealthy products post birth?
In the last decade we’ve had a welcome explosion of natural organic baby products, and we’re thrilled that many of the brands making them do much more than just use organic materials or ingredients.
By supporting these brands you’re investing in not just quality products but also a better world for your little cherub to grow up in.
If you know a new parent who’s trying to wrap their head around diaper duties and all that spit up, feel free to share this guide so they too can give their little one the best.
