Eco Friendly Baby Products of 2022

When we had our first child, we ran a parenting blog and wrote about everything we learnt as parents. As our kids got older, we have been teaching them about the environment, which materials are eco friendly and the impact that plastic has on our health and the environment. With our mission to improve the world, we have developed a love for all natural materials and always buy the best quality things for our family.

An example of this is our wool duvets and pillows, glass containers for meal prep, stainless steel water bottles, cotton clothing and more. The point is that if you share our passion with all things natural and want the best for your family, you will love these eco friendly baby products, we have hand selected every product to provide you with the best ones. 

1. Baby Tights (3 Pack)

1. Baby Tights (3 Pack)

These baby tights come in three main colours, blue, white and charcoal. They are made from organic cotton which keeps them soft and breathable ensuring that your baby does not overheat. In addition to this, they are also highly elastic. Due to the elasticity of the tights, your baby will not feel restricted in any way and as a result will be able to move freely whilst they are awake. This allows them to sit comfortably, as well as explore the house as they begin to grow. 

They are the perfect outfit for any occasion. Whether you’re going to the park, visiting family or simply sitting at home, you can be confident and happy knowing that your baby is comfortable. As they are relatively neutral colours, they can be combined with a number of different tops to create fun and exciting outfit variants. In addition to occasional wear, they are also great for different seasons. These baby tights can be worn in warm weathers and summer days without your baby overheating. At the same time, they are also perfect for keeping your little one snug on cold winter days. They can also be worn underneath trousers for additional warmth if conditions are particularly cold. 

After use, they can be washed using a washing machine along with all of your other babies clothes. Sizes vary from newborn to 4 years old, making these tights perfect for your baby as they grow up. We always suggest that you buy your tights slightly too large, this way your baby will still remain comfortable whilst they grow and develop. This way, they become an investment rather than a cost.

They are compatible with a wide array of cot sizes and designs ensuring the perfect bed conditions throughout the year.

What is a fitted sheet for a cot?

A fitted sheet has a total of four corners as well as between two or four sides that have been fitted with elastic. As a result, they are perfect for use as a bottom sheet. The purpose of this sheet is to keep it slipping off the mattress whilst the bed is being used by your baby. Therefore, your baby can sleep comfortably without the risk of their sheet slipping. These particular sheets are extremely comfortable, allowing your baby to sleep comfortably and without hassle throughout the night. 

How to fold your sheet?

There are many different ways to fold your sheet, all of which depend on your own personal preferences. The easiest way to fold any sheet is to start with the corners. Fold one corner to the other and continue to do so until the sheet has been folded to the size you are looking for. Once it is the perfect size, you can store your sheet in a dry location until it needs to be used.

5. Cotton Baby Socks (12 Pairs)

5. Baby Socks (12 Pairs)

Bless their cotton socks, well, you can only bless them if they are cotton and not if they are polyester (plastic!). Cotton is one of the most natural materials for clothing and your baby deserves the best. The majority of socks are made with 100% polyester which is bad for the environment and for your skin. Other socks are often made with a mix of 80% cotton and 20% polyester and these luxury socks only contain 5% polyester. The truth is that polyester is useful when it comes to producing socks because it helps make them more stretchy and flexible, without it, socks become either too loose or tight.   

These unisex newborn-12 months baby socks come in tons of different colours to choose from such as purple, green, brown, grey, yellow, blue and more. This means you will have as much choice as you need when it comes to picking a pack. Because they come in packs of 5 pairs it will mean you are not going to be constantly washing socks, just make sure you keep them in pairs. Newborns tend to get cold feet all of the time because of the lack of movement being cuddled all of the time, they need socks to keep their tootsies warm and cosy, socks can also make a newborn feel more content. Having cold feet can disturb sleep so make sure they’re nice and warm at bedtime.

Many mums buy tons and tons of newborn baby socks that they just grow out of, but really you should only need 10 pairs of plain and coloured socks to avoid mixing them up in the washing. As these newborn socks last until your baby is 12 months it means they will be using them all year round, and even learning to walk and crawl in them. The materials that they are made with mean that these socks can be used in summer, winter, autumn and spring. It is a breathable yet cosy material, they are also super stretchy for the baby’s growing feet. Many grandparents and parents chose to hand knit baby socks, if you don’t already know how to knit, there are plenty of learning online courses to get you there.
