The Verdict

There is something for everyone on this list, from the $400 crib that takes families from newborn to teens, to the everyday essentials like reusable cotton wipes. All the organic baby products on this list will not only keep baby comfortable but also lower the impact on the surrounding environment. The focus for many of the items on this list is a move away from products that are low quality and need to be replaced all the time.

Because these items are built for long-term use, it is difficult to compare the prices of these items with disposable brands. There is something to be said about paying slightly more for a high-quality product that can be used for years to come.

While not every mom may want to run out to buy a designer diaper bag made of plastic bottles, using a wooden teether with essential oils may be something they can get behind. It is possible to find the right mix of products to both meet the needs of the fragile infant skin and be kind to the environment.  Even if you’re not ready to invest in a pricey piece of furniture made from sustainable materials, you can always start replacing your disposable necessities with reusable products.

Parents looking for organic baby products can make each of the items on this list fit nicely into that group. They mostly come from brands with long histories of parent satisfaction.
