Organic Cotton Baby Clothing

Updated on February 25, 2011

The Pros And Cons Of Organic Cotton Baby Clothes

We all want to do the best for our babies, which helps to explain why the popularity of organic cotton baby clothes is growing all the time. If you're unsure about whether it's worth investing in these clothes, here's a quick guide to the pros and cons of doing so.


1) Health: Organic cotton baby clothes have been made purely from organic cotton. This means that the cotton was not grown using fertilizers and pesticides, and has not undergone other chemical processes such as bleaching and dyeing. How does this help to protect the health of your baby? It means that they are some of the most natural clothes you can get, and won't bring your baby's skin into contact with toxic chemicals.

2) Appearance: Buying organic cotton clothing doesn't mean you have to compromise on the way the clothes look. They look just as good as other types of clothing, and in most cases will be even better made and more durable (due to the higher price tag).

3) Environmental Impact: If you want to do your part for the environment then buying organic clothing will certainly help. In the same way that you're avoiding letting toxic chemicals come into contact with your baby's skin, you're also reducing the pollution that takes place as a result of the clothes production.


1) Cost: Unfortunately, organic cotton baby clothes do cost more than standard clothing, due to the fact that organic production costs a lot more.

2) Selection: There really isn't as much choice when it comes to organic clothing as there is with traditional baby clothes. Organic products aren't produced on the same mass-scale as chemically treated products, though the tide is changing. By shopping online you'll find enough choice available to satisfy all of your baby's needs.

3) Finding Genuinely Organic Products: Another important point to note is that you don't always know what's genuinely organic. Some manufacturers may label their products as "natural", but it's important not to trust these labels at face value. Instead, look for the USDA organic seal, or try to find out more information about a company and their products from their website. You should look specifically for labels stating that the products are 100% organic (not just "organic" or made from "organic material").

Organic cotton baby clothes are becoming more popular thanks to the health benefits, though they can still be too expensive for some parents. It's up to you to do your own research and decide whether organic clothing is right for you and your baby.
