You know how important what you put in your baby is…have you given as much thought to what they come into contact with on the outside? Here’s a roundup of our favorite organic and organically-sourced baby products.
Best organic diaper: Andy Pandy
Not only has Andy Pandy removed unwanted chemicals (like chlorine and phthalates) from their diapers, they’re also biodegradable and eco-friendly, thanks to their bamboo makeup. Plus, they’re soft, absorbent, and even feature a wetness indicator not commonly found in organic diapers. That means you’ll actually have an answer when your pediatrician asks you how many wet diapers your newborn has every day.
Runner up: Seventh Generation
Thanks to an absorbent, FSC-Certified fluff pulp core, Seventh Generation diapers are as effective at stopping leaks as they are gentle on baby’s skin. We also love how easily accessible they are, from Target to Amazon to your local grocery store.
Best organic diaper rash cream: Earth Mama Organic Diaper Balm
Naturally antibacterial and antifungal, this soothing diaper balm is a quick, safe way to get your tiny human’s nether regions back to baby softness. It’s free of lanolin and zinc, vegan, and even safe for cloth diapers. Smooth move, Earth Mama.
Runner up: Green Goo Baby Balm
Besides boasting an exclusively organic ingredient list, we love this product because it can be used to treat so many skin issues, from cradle cap to baby acne. New mamas can also use it as a nipple cream or to moisturize stretch marks.
Best organic baby clothes: Monica + Andy
Founded by a mom who wanted only the best for her baby (and her baby’s skin), Monica + Andy pairs eco-conscious, organic fabrics with adorable patterns you’ll love showing off in your Instagram feed.
Runner up: Under the Nile
Sustainable, ethically manufactured, and community-driven? Under the Nile has it all. Plus, they’ve been doing organic baby clothes since before the bigger brands realized it was hip—and you’ll love how cute the clothes are.
Best organic baby soap: Dr. Bronner’s Pure Castile Liquid Soap
Moisturizing and unscented, Dr. Bronner’s soap is great for babies (or anyone with sensitive skin or allergies). Not only is it certified organic and vegan, even the bottle is made from 100 percent post-consumer recycled materials, making this baby soap option about as good as it gets.
Runner up: Chagrin Valley Soap & Salve Castile Soap
Don’t be fooled by the hand-cut bars—this 100% natural soap works into a creamy, moisturizing lather that also works great as a baby shampoo. Note: It isn’t tear-free, so keep away from those little eyes.
