Every parent wants what’s best for their baby. We read all that we can before our bundle of joy arrives and spend every moment after they arrive protecting and providing for them. However, many parents are unaware of organic fabric and the benefits that items made from organic cotton provide for babies.

What is Organic Fabric?

Organic fabrics are grown and manufactured without pesticides and other chemicals. The materials must be checked during every step of the process to ensure that no contamination or additives end up in the fabric. While not all fabrics can be organically sourced and created, several materials can. These include cotton, wool, silk, and linen.

Organic fabrics are better for the environment and better for the farmers who grow the materials for the fabrics. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) ensures organic fabric manufacturers meet the certification process every step of the way, from planting to distribution.

Why Organic Cotton Is Better For Babies

Although many people purchase organic clothing and other products because of the environmental impact, organic fabrics benefit babies in several other ways as well.


Better For Your Baby’s Skin

No matter how many times you wash your baby’s onesies or swaddle blankets, any chemicals or pesticides used during the growing and production process can linger in the fabric. These toxic chemicals can irritate or even harm your baby’s delicate, soft skin.

However, organic fabrics like organic cotton and bamboo are better for your baby’s skin because they don’t contain these toxins or other irritants. For this reason, clothing and blankets made from organic cotton are the safest for your baby’s sensitive skin.


More Durable and Soft

Organic cotton is just as durable and strong as regular cotton. However, because most organic fabrics are farmed and created with care, they are typically better quality products. For this reason, organic cotton clothing and blankets typically hold up better through the high amount of washing and heavy use they undergo with your baby. An added benefit is that not only is organic cotton and bamboo gentle for your babies’ skin, but these organic fabrics actually get softer with every wash. Furthermore, many organic cotton blankets also include bamboo — which is one of the most durable materials used to make clothing and other items.


Comfortable For Baby

Babies can’t regulate their body temperature in the same way that adults can, which means they are more likely to overheat or cool down depending on the temperature inside or outside. Organic cotton is comfortable and breathable, making it great for your baby any time of year. The lightweight, breathable material makes it so your baby won’t overheat, and that any sweat or wetness won’t get trapped in your babies’ skin folds which can lead to eczema and other skin rashes.


The Wee Bean’s Commitment To You

Here at The WeeBean, we believe in making products that are both kind to your baby and kind to our Earth. This is why we use mostly organic cotton and bamboo in all of our swaddles, bibs, and onesies for your baby.
