View Full Version : Organic Baby Clothes?
08-12-2008, 12:46 AM
I'm searching far and wide for some original organic clothing for my son. I seem to be having a difficult time finding organic clothes that aren't too cutsie. I just want simple designs.
I've found some great things on http://dardinelle.com and on http://etsy.com but where are some other places I should look?

What the heck is organic clothes?

Made of organic cotton. I'm not sure what exactly makes it organic. Some requirements for an organic label are pretty loose. But supposedly, they are supposed to contain less chemicals and skin-irritants.

Organic cotton is made with no dyes or chemicals, wears better and is softer. The less chemicals in the materials the less irritants to your baby. Also organic cotton is earth friendly since the use of chemicals are limited, the less impact environmentally and to the workers.

At first my reason for searching out organic cotton was medical.
At only a few weeks old my son developed severe eczema and his pediatrician suggested organic cotton as an alternative to the harsh steroidal creams they wanted to put him on. The search for organic clothing was not easy, and just plain expensive, but I knew his baby skin could not take the harsh chemicals used in regular textiles.
The more research I did, the more I knew our entire family needed to make a change, for us and the planet. That was when I founded a company that supplies <a href="http://www.peacefuldisorder.com/">eco friendly clothing</a>, and since it is a family adventure, the prices are very reasonable. ($12-$30)
You will probably see the same products in your local boutique for twice as much, I know I did. But best of all, after about 6 months of wearing organic, our baby has no sign of eczema.

I recently bought my 4th grader a pair of organic cotton socks for hking. My husband thought I was crazy to spend $8 on hiking socks, but the wool were more expensive but irriates his skin. Any thoughts on wool vs. organic cotton for kids?

Thanks for all the replies! I definitely believe that organic cotton just FEELS so much better than regular cotton. Have you ever had the two side by side? I got some onesies from www.dardinelle.com (all their onesies are made with organic cotton) and they were so soft compared to my other onesies made with regular cotton.
Even if your child doesn't have sensitive skin, don't they deserve fashions that are comfortable and feel great against their skin? I think so! :)
I only eat organic and all natural food. One thing I do feel strongly about is organic materials in everything for my baby. I have the same problem you are in finding them. However, babies r us has organic cotton nursery items (Blankets, sheets, etc), clothes, bibs and other things.
Where I live, Tucson AZ, there are also many organic markets that have organic baby food and diapers made of recycled materials. Try Trader Joes or Whole Foods, you'd be surprised what you might find.

When you consider organic clothes, you should also make sure that they are 100% certified organic. SKAL and The Control Union are the leading organic certification programs. You should also make sure that dyes used for the organic clothes are low impact dyes and no harmful chemicals or harsh bleaches are used. To me it is important to know where the products are manufactured. I understand that it is hard to check the condition of the manufacturing facilities from a consumer's point of view. But I would definately check which country it is manufactured in because the recent recalls of baby items made me skeptical about the safety and regulatory control in some countries.
I researched a lot about organic baby clothes and toys over the last year and decided to start my organic baby boutique. please check it out.
