Deciding what you need for a new baby is so overwhelming with all of the options in stores and so much research to do on the safest and healthiest gear for your new little one. We’ve put together a list of ten non-toxic baby items for your registry to make things easier!
1. Aden + Anais Organic Muslin Swaddles
Aden + Anais is the go-to brand for premium muslin swaddles, available in organic cotton and conventional options. We love the softness and easy-to-use of their muslin swaddles and think you will too! Check out their collections for a variety of adorable prints to coordinate with any nursery theme.
2. Bannor Toys Wooden Teether
You probably already know that babies put everything in their mouths, so make sure they have a safer option when it comes to teething relief! These wooden teethers made by Bannor Toys use sustainably harvested maple wood with a smooth sanded finish and no oils or finishes.
3. Boon Pulp Silicone Feeder
Mesh feeders are a great way to introduce food to your little one when they are ready for solids (check with your doctor - this is usually around six months or older), and Boon’s feeder is an ideal option made without plastic, using durable silicone instead.
4. Applecheeks Cloth Diapers
Cloth diapers are more affordable in the long run and much more eco-friendly than their disposable counterparts, but there’s a learning curve and a lot of apprehension for first time users. Luckily Applecheeks has a starter kit that will set you up for success if cloth diapering is something you want to try!
5. Bambo Nature Diapers
While cloth is great, sometimes you really just need the convenience of a disposable diaper for laundry day or an emergency backup in your bag. Bambo Nature diapers are made with renewable and eco-friendly materials for a healthier baby and healthier planet. They also make training pants, wipes, and more!
6. Charlie Banana Organic Cotton Wipes
Charlie Banana’s two-sided wipes are a top pick for the cloth diaper enthusiast (and they’re handy even if you never use them for a diaper change at all). Made with comfy cozy organic cotton, they’re machine washable for convenience and easy cleanup.
7. EZPZ Mats
Available in a full-size and mini-size, these silicone mats from EZPZ are perfect for finger foods and big kid meals. They combine a sectioned plate with a placemat that suctions to the table, significantly reducing overturned bowls and other messes.
8. Kiddy Star Bandana Bibs
Babies spit up and drool - luckily, they’re so cute that we keep them around even when they’re messy. These absorbent bandana bibs are perfect for keeping baby’s face clean all day long. Made with super soft organic cotton, they’re machine washable for easy laundering -- but definitely buy the eight-pack, you’re going to need them all.
9. OrganicKidz Stainless Steel Baby Bottle
Whether you’re nursing or formula feeding, you may be in need of a non-toxic baby bottle! OrganicKidz stainless steel bottles convert from baby bottle to sippy cup to water bottle without needing to purchase new cups each time your little one needs the next step up. Their Baby Grows Up Bottle Kit has all the accessories you need to go from baby to big kid.
10. Lullaby Earth Breeze Breathable Crib Mattress
Baby sleeps up to 18 hours a day, which is all the more reason to invest in a quality crib mattress made without harmful chemicals. The Breeze combines a trusted waterproof crib mattress with a washable breathable pad, for maximum airflow without any hygienic worries. It’s easy to keep clean and provides a comfortable, healthier night’s sleep for your little one.
