    Thank you for this article I really wish I had known all of this sooner. I have emailed carters about their baby clothes and they say they do not use any toxic chemicals in the production of their clothes. I’m not sure how much I believe it though. I’ve started buying from sweet peanut. They sell gots certified baby clothing and they have sales which make it a lot more affordable. Thank you again for this article

    Hi Could you Kindly tell me if Okaidi sells original organic cotton clothes.

    I have just picked a few for my baby.



  3. Estee says

    Thanks for this information! What about Burts Bees organic baby clothing line? Zara’s baby clothing?
    Hoping to hear back from you!

  4. Stephanie Serkhoshian says

    What about L’oved Baby, Maple or Silkberry? All three have such cute options and claim to be organic. Do you regularly update to include new brands?

    • Maia James says

      I don’t know those brands, Stephanie, but will add them to the list for when we update this guide (yes, we are always updating!).

  5. Marisela says

    This is all great information, I’m so glad I came across it. As moms, we care about our babies health more than anything else. I recently bought these baby bibs in Amazon, I would really recommend them to all the moms out there. They are 100% Cotton and have no fluorescent agents.

    What are your thoughts on Lyocell fabrics for clothes (and sheets, mattresses pads, etc, for that matter). How about bamboo? People are marketing these as eco-friendly, etc, but I am wary and would love to know your opinion. Could they be good alternatives to organic cotton? One site said that Lyocell was more eco-friendly than cotton (even organically grown cotton).

    • Maia James says

      While the manufacturing process for lyocell (and some of the newer ways bamboo is turned into fabric, too) are gentler on the environment, they both still use chemicals that sensitive people (if not all of us!) should avoid.

    I recently placed an order of Burt’s Bees Baby organic clothing and it’s so unfortunate, but it smelled. I washed it twice; the smell didn’t go away. I am so disappointed because I had ordered clothing from them in the past and it never had a smell. Now, it even had a GOTS certification and it was puzzling for me to smell the strong fishy like odor. So, I researched and found out that its parent company is Clorox, which is anti GMO labeling. Do we trust Burt’s Bees Baby organic line? Do you have any updated information on this topic?

  8. Coriena says

    I recently discovered PACT: I ordered a shirt for myself, but saw they also have baby clothes. They seem pretty good, so consider researching them and adding them to the list. Also, I got some L’ovedbaby organic clothes for my baby shower–organic cotton and GOTs certified I believe, so hopefully another good one.

    Here in Canada we have an amazing company called Peekaboo Beans which is free of harsh chemicals and strictly follows the oeko tec 100 standard. Although it is a Canadian company, it does ship to the US! You can find out more at

    • Maia James says

      This is on our list for a future investigation–typically, water-repellent treatments are a problem, so we will post as soon as we have some safe recommendations (if they exist!).

  10. Kiki says

    Yes please same question,
    maybe somebody knows a company who makes winter jackets gear without harsh chemicals?
    We checked Hannah Anderson but there winter gear smelled like chemicals and was no different compare to target for example, made in China, 100% polyester, no oeko Tex sign, etc
    Very disappointed

  11. Kairi Gainsborough says

    My sister tries to make sure her kids wear completely organic clothing. I want to buy her some baby clothes, so this guide is super helpful! While I look for clothes, I’ll keep an eye out for companies that have a third-party certification. Hopefully, I can find something in a cute print!

  12. Jennifer B. says

    Do you know anything about Mud Pie?
    All their website says is that they “comply with all applicable rules, bans and standards set forth by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.”
    Doesn’t sound too promising!

  13. Liza says

    Can you please recommend the safest fabric to use for baby blankies, including silky material, as I wish to use the safest material?

    Many thanks

    I’ve been looking for organic clothing for adults and the selection is really poor. It’s hard to find something that is organic and also stylish. Would love to hear about any organic clothes for adults as well.

    Thank you for your website!

    Hi Maia,

    There is organic clothes sold in Amazon, the brand is Hope & Henry. I was wondering if you may have heard of it.
    Thank you very much!

  19. Melissa says

    Hi Maiai,
    Hope & Henry claims they are ECOCERT certified. They sell organic clothes in Amazon.
    I am interested to know about your thoughts on this.
    Thank you for the work you do!

  20. Sam says

    Nice. Discovered really cool brands here. For now i mostly buy clothes for my baby from They make clothes from natural and organic merino wool. It has no chemicals and is very soft for my sensitive baby skin. Really recommend to check that out 🙂

  21. Mary Nowell says

    I am looking at a new simple sewing machine. Like Betty above I haven’t sewed in 40 years and I have a grand baby on the way and it is time to find some cost savings ideas on baby clothes.

  22. Lucy Lue Organics says

    Reading GAP under the bad stuff for children’s clothes just made my stomach turn. Half my precious little baby girl Marijke’s clothes are GAP. I feel like I’m gonna be sick.

    • Maia James says

      Don’t freak out! My kids wear plenty of Gap items, too. Clothing is very hard, and other areas of her life are more important, in my opinion.

  24. Ashley says

    Carter’s recently came out with an organic line. I haven’t purchased any myself, but just wanted to throw it out there for future review. Thanks!

  25. Zehr says

    If long term storage is required we suggest placing Alpaca or Merino wool in a shirt box, pillow case or clean paper bag as these options protect the fabrics from dust and pests while allowing air circulation. If moths are a concern, we suggest natural repellents such as cedar chips or lavender.

    • Maia James says

      Luckily, it’s no longer legal to put flame retardant chemicals into clothing for kids, so this is one thing we actually DON’T have to worry about!

      • Grace says

        Hi! So when the jammies say “flame resistant”, does that just mean they’re polyester (e.g. naturally flame resistant) and don’t contain flame retardants? Now I just have to wrap my head around synthetic fibers vs. non-organic cotton.

        Oh- BTW- Carter’s apparently carries an organic/GOTS certified line now called Little Planet. Looks cute and way cheaper than, say, Hanna Andersson.

  26. Rebekah says

    H&M I know are not great but is their conscious range ok? Would love to buy some of these other brands but with 3 little ones under 3 it can be tough. Thanks!!

  27. Jessica says

    Hi Maia – I’m obsessed with your guides and buy almost everything in my home based on your recommendations (and plan to buy more in future from you directly). Clothing has been the one thing that I’ve found to be challenging cost-wise since my little one grows out of it so quickly. I recently discovered – are you familiar with this company? If you agree that it is great, it could be an affordable option to add to your list. They have great quality OEKO-TEX certified simple clothing that has been great for us for school. Just thought I’d share for others!

  28. tanya says

    I left a comment about Hanna Andersson a few days ago and it is not published, Is there a particular reason?I was hoping to get your input

  29. tanya says

    they have 100% organic cotton items and previously when I inquired they said that their manufacturing process do not involve any chemicals. However,I just found out from the company that even their 100% cotton infant clothes have formaldehyde. They said it is below 20 ppm for infants and 75 ppm for others so adhere to the OEKO standards. I feel very upset. I spent a few thousand dollars over the past year on their items thinking that it is good for my baby and they include a toxic item (at least one God knows what else)

  30. Lindsy says

    Hello! Looking for some updated information, do you have plans to update the guide anytime soon? Thanks so much!

  31. Robert Mikealson says

    Thanks a lot for guiding us with this essential post about baby clothing. It is important to know which is the safe products for children. From your post, we get much valuable information on this topic.

  32. Renee says

    Both Carter’s and Walmart have an organic brand that is GOTS certified! “Two crows for joy” , “new jammies” , Frugi, Kite, and Toby Tiger are brands that I just found ( the last 3 are UK companies).

  33. Serina Carrasco says

    Hello! Thanks for all your very helpful guides. I’ve greatly benefited from them. I was wondering if you recommend any brands or companies that make organic/non-toxic clothing for adults? I’ve just begun to research the toxic things in clothing but haven’t been able to find healthier alternatives (aside from baby clothing…)

  34. susukoshi Australia says

    Thank you very much for sharing about baby clothing here… I really hope I can work on your tips and it works for me too, I am happy to come across your article. Great post I must admit, keep sharing more…

  35. Daniela K says

    Great job! Very helpful!
    Have you hear about the Lamaze Organic baby clothes? They also claim to be GOTS-certified! And have a good variety of clothes.

  36. Lidia says

    I feel that Burt’s Bees clothing should be removed…I have bought it for years and it was great but I just bought a bunch for my baby for the Spring/Summer and the chemical smell it arrived with won’t wash out. I have washed it 5 times and also dried it and it reeks so badly I would never put it in my baby or even myself. Literally spent $350 on stuff that will end up donated or trashed. It even stunk up the bedroom just laying folded on the bed.
