We search high and low for the best products to use when we’re pregnant. From natural maternity wear to safe medications, it’s the beginning of a lifelong journey to provide the best and safest items for our little ones. With so many options out there, sometimes it’s hard to distinguish between the latest natural baby products you can trust and those that seem clean and safe.
Reviews go a long way, but you must do your homework on the products you purchase. But to help take some of the guesswork out of sustainable shopping that’s good for your family and the environment, we created a list of the latest natural baby products that we love and think you’ll love.
1. Coterie Diapers
This five-star reviewed diaper line might not have the household brand recognition of other products, but we think it should. These diapers are hypoallergenic, soft, and designed to minimize leaks, blowouts, and diaper rash. As a mom of a big-time bed wetter, I’ve tried various nighttime diapers to avoid 3 a.m. diaper, outfit, sleep sack, and sheet changes. Coterie promises their absorbent core holds 70% more liquid, so diapers stay drier longer, even overnight.
2. Esembly Cloth Diapers
Designed with eco-friendly parents in mind, these reusable cloth diapers made of certified organic cotton and recycled plastic bottles have many parents talking. Landfill-free, leak-resistant, and super-absorbent, the reusable diapers in this kit can keep 1,000+ diapers out of the trash each year. Because Esembly diapers don’t contain moisture-wicking sodium polyacrylate chemicals, older babies can correlate the sensation of needing to pee with the feeling of wetness after, which can give them a head start on potty training. It’s a top-of-the-line cloth diaper that we can’t recommend enough.
3. Earth Mama Diaper Balm
Earth Mama is an excellent company committed to sustainable sourcing. We encourage you to check out their product line if you haven’t heard of them. What’s great about this balm is that it doubles as a multi-tasking skin salve safe for the whole family. We love that it’s dermatologist-tested, clinically tested for irritation, and contains no petroleum, preservatives, or artificial fragrance. Hospitals also choose it for even the most fragile NICU babies, so it’s a choice you can feel confident in.
4. Naturepedic Mattress
Barry A. Cik, a veteran in the field of environmental engineering with over 30 years of experience chasing chemicals, founded Naturepedic. Inspired by the arrival of his first grandchild, he researched mattress options. He created an organic baby crib mattress with a patented food-grade waterproof surface made from non-GMO sugarcane with various breathable options. We’ve tested their mattresses and it’s our go-to mattress that we recommend. There’s nothing like the peace of mind for a parent to know their baby is sleeping soundly and safely on quality material you can trust.
5. Solly Baby Wrap
Baby wraps are fantastic, but some can be awkwardly designed. Baby Chick has tested and used many Solly Baby wraps, and this one evenly distributes your baby’s weight across your upper body without pinching or straining your shoulders or back. We love how they are soft and lightweight, keeping you and your baby comfortable and not feeling overheated. Other moms also rave about them, saying that it’s comfy for both their back support and baby. Plus, you can book a free consultation with Solly’s babywearing educator, which we think is a pretty cool perk that comes with your purchase.
6. Kyte Baby Sleep Bags and Clothing
Okay, so there is a hierarchy regarding fabric quality for baby clothing. Not all sleepwear is created equally. Made of incredibly soft, hypoallergenic bamboo rayon fabric, the Kyte clothing line and sleep bags are sure to feel buttery soft on your little one’s delicate skin. Kyte fabrics are breathable and more temperature-regulating than alternatives; it’s three degrees cooler than cotton! We love them so much and have a full review of their sleep bags here.
7. Lou Lou Lollipop Teethers
Teething is the not-so-fun, very unavoidable phase of babyhood. You will undoubtedly need a few options to soothe sore gums in a pinch to help comfort your babe, and we love these adorable teethers from Lou Lou Lollipop. From silicone options made from food-grade silicone to wooden teethers made from beech wood, parents can mix and match favorites and try different selections to find the perfect fit for their baby. You can also chill these for added comfort.
8. Stokke Tripp Trapp
One of my friends raves over this purchase and swears by it for any new parents navigating the hunt for the perfect high chair. When talking with our editors here at Baby Chick, they also couldn’t say enough great things about the Tripp Trapp. On the pricier side? Yes. But this chair plus baby set and harness configuration can grow with your child and be used from 6 months old to 3 years old and then it can become a chair for adults. Its sleek design is available in a variety of colors and in beech or oak wood finishes which will seamlessly blend into your home style.
9. Pipette Bath Products
Finding the right bathing products for your babe can be a full-time job. Pipette takes clean care to the next level. We love that this company banned over 2,000 potentially harmful ingredients from their formulas. The rigorously tested, pure ingredients leave parents with scientifically backed, nurturing, extra-pure formulas—no fluff, no fillers, no confusion. Parents love them, and so do we.
Made from cellulose plant fibers as opposed to plastic, these baby wipes are much softer than many other wipes on the market. The ingredients are simple: 99.9% water and just a drop of grapefruit extract,w which means gentle care for your little one. We also love the size – at 18 cm by 20 cm; these baby wipes are up to 33% larger than many other brands, which makes cleaning up just a little bit easier and faster for parents.
Kids look adorable in shoes, but they grow out of them so quickly that it’s hardly practical or sustainable to constantly buy new pairs. We hate how much waste it creates. So, want to pop a cute pair of shoes on those tiny toes without the waste? Consider Woolybubs, the first biodegradable baby shoe made with planet-friendly wear and tear materials but dissolves when placed in boiling water! A truly stylish and sustainable option for little feet that are constantly outgrowing their cute kicks. Our team also got to meet the founders of this great company at the 2022 ABC Kids Expo, and they have hearts of gold.
12. Coco Village Toys
This company is on a mission to design ergonomic, minimalist toys and furniture to offer kids fun playtime and parents an alternative to the bright, plastic options on the market. We love the variety of quality materials like birch, pine, and cotton for toys, furniture, decor, and accessories.
13. Toki Mats
Soft enough to catch tumbles and firm enough to support standing, these mats can carry your little one from tummy time to crawling, walking, and beyond. We love the beautiful designs and patterns that can effortlessly fit into any parent’s home. Best of all? All of Toki’s play mat materials are certified free of dangerous toxins, which provides a lot of peace of mind since your little one will be drooling all over it in no time.
14. Lalo Feeding Set
Okay, so maybe this set can’t make mealtime any less messy, but it can make it a lot cuter. Crafted from 100% non-toxic silicone that’s dishwasher safe, Lalo eating sets are perfect for little foodies everywhere. Their First Bites kits are all made with FDA-approved non-toxic and BPA-free silicone, meaning you can feel confident about the baby products your little one is chewing on.
15. Wellements Baby Bundle
From Gripe Water to Probiotic Drops, it’s helpful to have all the essentials on hand when a tummy or toothache strikes. We love Wellements formulas because they are all USDA-certified organic and formulated without chemicals or preservatives, so parents can trust the products they’re giving their babes. We also love that all Wellements baby products are bottled in glass: it’s better for the planet and our health.
16. Bēbee Lightweight Stroller from Bombi
Compact and light enough to replace your umbrella stroller, yet sturdy and comfy enough to be your everyday stroller, the Bēbee Lightweight Stroller combines full-size comforts with compact convenience, which is a huge plus for parents on the go. We are huge fans of an easy folding stroller, and parents rave about how user-friendly this one is. We’ve tested it ourselves and totally agree. This stroller gets significant points for us for saving over 56 single-use bottles from ending up in landfills because it uses fabric made with 50% recycled plastic bottles.
17. Lillebaby Complete Organic Carrier
We cannot understate the value of a genuinely comfortable carrier. This one gets the thumbs up from the International Hip Dysplasia Institute as a hip-healthy product. Moms and dads use it to tote their little ones everywhere, from shopping malls to hikes to strolls in the park. You and your baby can feel extra secure knowing the original design got an extra boost of consciousness in snuggly soft brushed organic cotton.
18. Lovevery Play Mat and Play Sets
My son loves everything Lovevery, and he’s certainly not the only one. Made with sustainable, organic, natural products that are good for your growing baby and the world, their play mat and development-stage-based subscription box sets are designed to encourage your little one to explore and imagine. These Montessori-inspired toys promise to spark creativity because child development experts specially designed them.
19. cuddle + kind dolls
The inspiration behind cuddle+kind was to craft beautiful hand-knit dolls that help feed children. The company gives 10 meals to children in need for every doll sold. What’s not to love about a cute toy and a vital mission? These feel-good dolls are also safe for little ones, made with natural, high-quality cotton. If it’s also essential for you to know the products you are purchasing are fair trade, this brand is proud to share that there are incredible women artisans who lovingly handcraft every doll in Peru and Nepal.
20. Manhattan Toys
With a user-friendly website, you’re bound to find the perfect toy based on age, occasion, and even themes. From farms and forests to oceans and outer space, there’s a toy for every interest at Manhattan Toy. We love this company because they’re not only thinking about creating beautiful toys that are visually stimulating for our little ones but also transparent and thoughtful about their manufacturing process. Manhattan Toys make it a point to regularly visit their production partners in China, Vietnam, and Thailand. Each is audited and certified by the International Council of Toy Industries (ICTI), which is dedicated to environmental concerns, fair and lawful employment practices, and workplace safety.
The perfect one-stop-shop for toys, pacifiers, and teethers you can trust, Mushie is an American-owned baby brand best known for its Scandinavian-style products. Parents love their stylish pacifier clips, and it’s easy to see why. All their baby products are advertised as BPA-free, mold resistant, and lead-free to keep your baby safe, healthy, and stylish.
From baby clothes to milestone blankets to bed linens, we love this super soft and sustainable fabric you might want in your size. Made of a unique blend of 30% organic cotton and 70% bamboo, MORI fabric is easy to care for, durable, and gentle on a baby or toddler’s sensitive skin. MORI is intentional about bamboo use because it’s a natural, sustainable, and renewable resource. Using closed-loop processes, whereby no chemicals enter the waste stream, the fabric is even less harmful to the planet than conventionally produced cotton or oil-based synthetics like polyester.
23. Life Factory Glass Baby Bottles
Glass and baby bottles might sound like a dangerous combo, but for eco-conscious parents who want a sustainable, chemical-free option – Life Factory is the perfect solution. Their fan-favorite narrow-neck baby bottles are easy to clean and feature a silicone sleeve in a variety of customizable colors. A bonus for parents who love twinning with their babe? Grownup-size bottles with silicone sleeves so you can match your drinks together in style.
24. Colored Organics Clothing
Beautifully crafted clothing for babies and toddlers to love, this fashion line is ethically produced and touts a tagline that tends to stick with you: “by choosing to be 100% sweatshop-free, we ensure that children play in our clothes, not make them.” If that mission alone isn’t enough to encourage you to check Colored Organics out, consider that their naturally hypoallergenic organic cotton is the perfect natural solution for sensitive baby skin.
25. Boppy Organic Nursing Pillow
Boppy has been a reliable and trusted brand for years. Whether breastfeeding or bottle-feeding (or both), it’s great to have some added comfort and support for you and your baby. Having a few covers on standby is always a good idea because spit-up, throw-up, and blowouts happen often. The organic nursing pillow features gentle 100% organic cotton jersey fabric with dual-sided prints, ideal for sensitive baby skin during feeding and cuddle time.
26. Avanchy Feeding Set
Feeding time just got a whole lot more stylish. We love this no-slip, no-mess hypoallergenic and non-toxic feeding set crafted from organic bamboo atop a silicone ring for easy eating and easier cleanup. The bamboo baby spoon features an ergonomically designed handle so it will fit in grown-up hands but is intuitive for baby fingers. Whether you’re opting for baby-led weaning or just getting your little one used to grasping and gripping, the spoon makes self-feeding a snap for your baby.
27. Motherlove Nipple Cream
Nursing mommas know that nipple cream is a breastfeeding must-have, and it’s wise to have a few extra bottles on standby. This award-winning balm from Motherlove is a fan favorite because it’s so versatile. Our Editor in Chief has been recommending it to her clients for over a decade. Moms can use it to soothe sore nipples, lubricate pump flanges, and moisturize lips and hands. We also love that Motherlove uses solar-powered, zero-waste facilities.
28. Snuggle Me Organic
New moms only have two hands, and sometimes you must wash something, shower, or reheat your cold coffee in the microwave for the fourth time in the morning. Cue the Snuggle Me Organic infant lounger, the perfect place to pop your babe for a few minutes and let them relax. While the lounger is not a sleeping device and should not be used for co-sleeping, it’s great for an “extra set” of helping hands. You can safely set baby down in your Snuggle Me and keep them close while you conquer your day. We love how this product features organic cotton with fills free from chemicals and flame retardants.
29. Levo Baby Rocker
Pricey? Yes. Super chic? Also, yes. This baby rocker can be used from birth to seven months and fits perfectly into any interior with a modern wood design. We love how it mimics natural rocking and is adjustable with a removable harness. You can use it for years to come making it a sustainable purchase that saves you from buying a chair your little one would otherwise outgrow. Joanna Gaines also loved it and had it in her son’s nursery, which you can see in this article.
30. Bumbleride Indie
Speaking of baby products that grow with your growing babe, we are all about strollers that adjust and grow through toddlerhood. This stroller is built for all-terrain, lightweight, and infant-ready, with no attachments. We also love that it features fabric made from 100% recycled PET and that 25% of its plastic frame is sourced from recycled fishing nets.
31. Babyletto Crib
Cribs have come a long way from our childhood. Babyletto cribs are comfortable for babies and works of art for dream nurseries. Their collection of Greenguard Gold-certified products follows strict criteria screened for 10,000 chemicals and volatile organic compounds. They are scientifically proven to help reduce indoor air pollution and create a healthier home for sensitive individuals.
A lot of baby product buying is trial and error. It’s about finding what works for you and your family over time. A product you think your little one will love may not be the best fit. Hey, I can’t tell you how excited my baby gets over simple household items like wooden spoons or my sweater. Go figure. But some baby products, especially the ones coming in constant contact with your baby’s skin (and their mouth), are worth researching and putting a little extra effort into investing in. We hope this list helps you find a few new brands you can love and trust for years to come!
