The Best Organic Baby Clothes Brands (Plus, One to Avoid)

Looking for organic baby clothes? Find out which brands are the best (and which ones are guilty of greenwashing), plus our favorite picks from each line.

Best Organic Baby Clothes - MAIN

Choosing organic baby clothing is a great choice! It’s better for the environment and organic clothing is free from harsh chemicals, unsafe dyes, and toxic flame retardants—chemicals that studies link to lower IQ and hyperactivity.

If you’re new to organic baby clothes, we created this guide with some of our favorites, plus tips on how to be sure your baby clothes are safe.

Be sure you’re really getting organic clothes…

Just because a package boasts the words “organic” doesn’t mean it actually is.

For example, a onesie labeled organic may only contain 10% organic fibers, while the rest is made of non-organic materials. Even popular companies like Gerber do this! (Gerber is also known for unfair and unsafe labor practices overseas. BOO!) (source)

Look for clothes that are both GOTS- and OEKO-TEX-certified.

Let’s breakdown these certifications…

  • GOTS-certified: Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the strictest textile processing standard. In order to receive this certification, fabric must be free from toxic dyes and bleaches and the products must contain at least 70% organic fibers. Even the packaging must meet standards, such as being free from PVC. (source)
  • OEKO-TEX: This is a global certification that means the fabric has been tested for toxic chemicals.

Burt’s Bees

This popular brand also makes great lip balms! A mom favorite, Burt’s Bees carry a full line of the essentials, including onesies, pajamas, blankets, swaddles, and layette sets. Their burp cloths are particularly awesome!

We like the Burt’s Bees clothing line, because the clothes are super soft, adorable and the company is upfront about their 100 percent organic, GOTS-certified fabrics. They even share their GOTS-certification registration number for accountability.

Price range: $11+

Our favorite picks:

Pact

Pact is changing the way we think about clothing. They offer clothing that is fair trade, 100 percent organic, and free from all harmful toxins and dyes. The company also helps you recycle your old fabrics (like old towels). They produce their baby clothes with organic cotton and use manufacturing processes that save at least 12.5 gallons of water per piece of clothing.

We like the Pact line of clothing because there is a little something for everyone, including mamas, papas, and older kids.

Price range: $9+

Our favorite picks:

Under the Nile

Under the Nile is another company on a mission to provide organic baby clothes. In fact, for over 20 years, they have tried to make the world a better place through their clothes. As a fair trade company, Under the Nile teaches men and women how to sew, so they can provide for their own families.

We like Under the Nile, because they provide organic options for preemies up to 6Y. As a bonus, they also offer organic toys—the Scrappy toys are made from fabric scraps as an effort to be a zero-waste company. Their clothes and toys are super soft and baby-friendly.

Price range: $24+

Our favorite picks:

Hanna Anderson

Hanna Anderson is a high-end clothing line inspired by Hanna Anderson’s Scandinavian roots.

We like this fashionable line because not only is it organic, but it is a wide line for babies, toddlers, and children up to age 14. Hanna Anderson also offers pajamas, play clothes, dress clothes, swimwear, and accessories—everything you need to indulge your child’s inner fashionista.

Price range: $12+

Our favorite picks:

Touched by Nature

Touched by Nature is another organic line, and it is readily available on Amazon. This line is ideal for parents with younger babies and preemies. The line features layettes, onesies, sleepers, dresses, and bibs.

We like this line, because it is one of the most affordable of the organic baby clothes brands, which is great for all the poop, spit up and food stains!

Price range: $15+

Our favorite picks:

Boden

Like Pact, Boden offers organic clothing for everyone in the family. Boden is a British company that strives to work ethically to reduce modern slavery practices in the textile industry.

We like Boden, because their line is reminiscent of clothing from years past but with a modern twist.

Price range: $34+

Our favorite picks:

Oeuf

Oeuf (which means “egg” in French) is an organic line led by a husband and wife team. Whether you’re buying a wool sweater or cotton romper, all of Oeuf’s materials are organic and produced in eco-friendly manners.

We like Oeuf, because it’s not your traditional line of baby clothes. Just note: This is a very high-end clothing line, so it’s not always practical for everyday wear.

Price range: $55+

Our favorite picks:

Mini Mioche

Mini Mioche is a clothing company started by a mama who wanted one basic thing: a timeless, gender-neutral wardrobe for her daughter.

We like Mini Mioche, because it features basic pieces in neutral colors that are produced in sustainable methods. And clothes can be passed on through siblings, regardless of sex.

Price range: $26+

Our favorite picks:

Jazzy Organics

Jazzy Organics offers rompers, bibs, and bonnets that are made of 100 percent organic cotton. Even though the line is known for bright, fun patterns, all of the rompers are free from dyes and harmful residues. Jazzy Organics proudly offers GOTS-certified clothing for babies.

We like Jazzy Organics because it’s not your typical muted palette. You get all of the bright colors with none of the toxic dyes. Win win!

Price range: $34+

Our favorite picks:

Hope and Henry

Hope and Henry is a vintage-inspired clothing line for babies, kids, and adults. Whether you’re looking at classic dresses, sweaters, or newborn clothing, all fabrics are GOTS certified.

  1. Got some Burt’s Bees onsies as gifts and the sizes are completely off. After washing, what was labelled 9 months was too small for my 3 month old! The zipper onsie, in particular was very narrow, my baby is thin and it was very tight in the arms and legs.
    Lamaze is awesome, in my experience. Although it also fits a bit on the small side, it’s nothing like Burt’s Bees.

  2. Is Touched By Nature actually organic? I went on the GOTS database to look them up because their prices seemed extraordinarily cheap and I couldn’t find their certification. Some other good brands are: Endanzoo, L’oved Baby, Colored Organics…If you live in Canada a great source for organic baby supplies is babyjoy.ca

    • I am wondering the same thing. I found their certification number on their facebook page in a comment from a staff member, but still no luck…
