You obviously want what’s best for your baby. That especially means whatever you put close to their skin, whether it’s bedding or clothes. One of the softest and most sustainable choices is organic clothing, like organic cotton or organic viscose made from bamboo. Organic cotton is grown without pesticides from seeds that haven’t been genetically modified.

All the baby clothes on this list have organic certifications from either the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), or are made with USDA-certified organic cotton fiber, except for our pick for Best Pastels, which is made from sustainably grown bamboo. They come in delightful colors and whimsical patterns and convenient and comfortable designs.

Ahead, Treehugger's list of the best organic baby clothes.

From dinosaur footie pajamas to tie-dye rompers to flowery bubble dresses, Burt’s Bees has something for every baby’s fashion aesthetic. There are dozens of colors and patterns to choose from and styles ranging from preppy to modern to ruffly. Our editors have found items from this brand to be a good value and stand up to lots of washing, making it our top overall choice.

You can get your baby’s entire wardrobe here, including bodysuits, bottoms, dresses, rompers, tops, socks, jackets, and sweatshirts. Items are fairly priced and made from 100% GOTS-certified cotton. If you want to buy a little of everything, there’s also the Baby Bee Box that includes a selection of bodysuits, bibs, burp cloths, pajamas, a crib sheet, blanket, and lots of baby bath care products.

“As a new mom, what strikes me about Burt’s Bees organic clothes are the thoughtful details. For example, many of the onesies have grippy patterns on the bottom of the feet, to help little ones get a foothold when they’re ready to start trying to stand.” ~ Margaret Badore, Treehugger Associate Editorial Director

What to Look for in Organic Baby Clothes


When it comes to shopping for organic clothes of any kind, the key thing to look out for to avoid greenwashing is certification. The most common organic certification for fabric is the Global Organic Textiles Standard (GOTS). This means the cotton has been grown without synthetic pesticides.  

Other certifications that indicate finish products are free from harmful or concerning chemicals are Bluesign and OEKO-TEX. 

Ease of Use 

When it comes to baby clothes, we strongly recommend choosing function over style. Pay particular attention to how easily garments open and close, and what kinds of fasteners are used. Babies require frequent diaper and outfit changes, so most parents will appreciate zippers that can work in both directions or garments with relatively few snaps. Onesies and other outfits that have buttons or many snaps are much harder for parents to get into a squirming or crying baby. 

Magnets are a new popular option on some onesies, and while they are marvelously easy to open and close, be aware that they can be a problem for caregivers with pacemakers or other kinds of implanted devices. 

Size and Seasonality

Of course, not all babies will fit into manufacturer’s size recommendations by age, but they are a helpful rule of thumb.

If you’re shopping for a new parent or thinking about what to add to your registry, it’s a good idea to think about what season a baby will be born in and what season it will be when they reach future sizes. For example, a baby with a due date in the summer won’t need winter clothes in newborn sizes (assuming they live in a climate where you need winter clothes at all). 

Newborn clothes will be outgrown the quickest, so if you’re giving a gift, bigger sizes may be more useful.
