Before my son was born, I received what seemed to be a lifetime supply of 0-3 month onesies. Everyone told me: “you can never have enough onesies, especially in the beginning.” While, yes, I went through my fair share of onesies, a large portion of the stack went virtually untouched. I did laundry often enough, that I really probably only needed 7 or 8, maybe less.
As my son got older, I needed less, and I found that I would rather purchase key pieces in an organic fabric, than more for less, by buying conventional. The problem with organic clothing is that there’s not a lot of stuff out there, and most of it is extremely expensive. And while I understand the cost, there are just some instances where I have to be smart about what I spend. Toddlers are pretty messy, and I get the reason for “play clothes” now that he’s older.
Enter B nature organics. This is exactly what someone like me needs. Minimalistic design, affordability, yet still stylish to dress up or bum around in. B nature’s clothing line is high quality in both fabric and construction. Any dyes that are used are low impact dyes and the process from start to finish is certifed organic. And yet, the product itself is affordable. You only need a few pieces and you can mix and match to keep the look fresh. Did I mention that it’s all super soft? I wish they made this stuff for adults.
While baby jeans are cute, I tend to be geared towards knits for babies, because they’re functional and comfortable. Save the baby jeans for special occasions, and keep them in clothing that is not only comfortable but good for them and the environment.
Get It: You can order B nature’s clothing directly off their website, and enjoy 10% off your purchase using code SM2008. Code expires 1/30/09.
Bonus! We have a separates set to give away. The set consists of a long sleeve crossover top and a matching set of leggings in tan. Size is 3-6 months. This would make a great gift for someone, or you can keep it for yourself. I’m tempted to snag it for number two. Here’s how to enter:
