Before you have kids, detox is what you do after a night out on the town with too many cocktails. After you have kids, detox is what you try to do your immediate surroundings and every item that comes in contact with your precious and perfect baby. You may not go as far as making everyone don surgical scrubs (though the thought has crossed your mind!), but let’s face it, we live in a world awash in harmful chemicals and carcinogens, toxins and endocrine disruptors — for parents the struggle is real.
Fortunately, there are a number of baby companies out there who are just as concerned as parents are about ensuring baby products are safe. Every year it is getting easier to give kids a good start. Here are some great organic and eco-friendly products that will give you peace of mind.
aden+ anais Organic Dream Blanket
This blanket is made of four layers of 100 percent organic cotton muslin. It feels thick and fluffy but is highly breathable and gets softer with each washing. It’s a mom’s feel-good go-to blanket and will add a nice touch to the nursery décor.
Líllébaby Complete Organic Original Baby Carrier
If you want to leave the house without a cumbersome stroller and get that hands-free feeling back, a baby carrier is a must have. The Líllébaby Complete Organic Original Baby Carrier is made of certified organic cotton and offers six ways to carry baby from infancy to toddlerhood without breaking your back.
Babyganics Essentials Kit
When it comes to creating nontoxic baby-safe products, Babyganics does. not. play. This essentials kit is an ideal starter set for new parents and includes bubble bath, wipes, hand sanitizer, body wash, body lotion, body wash and shampoo, and hand wash dish soap.
Organic Cotton Baby Protective Pillow - Cloud Lamb
This might be the most eco-friendly pillow on the planet and it’s super cute to boot! It is 100% chemical free: no pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, GMOs, or flame retardants.
Organic Garden Patch Lavender Hat & Footie Set
This footie and hat set is utterly adorbs. It’s made from 100 percent organic cotton, and there is a matching bib and burp cloth, too — the ultimate baby gift set.
Burt’s Bees Crib Sheet
If you thought Burt’s Bees was just about lip balm, think again. The company has an amazing line of affordable organic baby products. This crib bedding is made with GOTS-certified 100 percent organic cotton and safe for baby’s sensitive skin.
Burt’s Bees Body Suit
While you’re at it, throw in a few packs of Burt’s organic cotton onesies, which just might be the one indispensible clothing item for the diaper set.

The Honest Company completely owns the market when it comes to cheerful and fun prints for baby’s bottom. And they’re serious about being eco-friendly: diapers are made with plant-derived and sustainable materials and without chlorine processing and additives.

Aden + Anais’ gorgeous swaddles are ideal for making a perfect “baby burrito." They also convert nicely to nursing covers, burp cloths, and stroller shades. (This mom still likes to wear them as scarves!) They're made of organic muslin and come in a variety of prints.
Zoog Bath Robe
A nice alternative to a towel, this super soft bathrobe is chemical free, vegan and GOTS certified. You can practically eat it for lunch.

So you might have heard that BPA-free products are possibly no safer than ones with BPA. While the jury is still out, it is probably a good time to start using glass bottles. These Born Free bottles can go from freezer to boiling water and come with a “Just Like Mom” nipple that’s suitable for babies who nurse.
