Luckily, many baby brands today are focusing on organic, healthy, eco-friendly products you will love to use. So let’s dig into our top 10 baby items for the eco-friendly sustainable mama’s baby registry.

  1. Breastmilk Storage Bags
  2. Cloth Diapers
  3. Solly Baby Wrap
  4. Design Dua Baby Bassinet
  5. Snuggle Me Organic Infant Lounger
  6. Phillips Avent Glass Baby Bottles

1. Breastmilk Storage Bags

Every nursing mama knows storage bags for your liquid gold (aka. breastmilk) is a must! I was finding myself going through so many breastmilk storage bags it was hurting my heart at times. I never really liked storing frozen breastmilk in glass canning jars because of the amount of space and pure fact they would come falling out of my freezer at times. I was on the hunt for an alternative. It wasn’t until my son Beaumont was 1.5 years old that I came across these Nuliie 7 Pcs Silicone Breastmilk Storage Bags that are reusable. Not only that but leakproof, eco-friendly, and heatable/freezable. Once I started using these I decided I’m never going back.

2. Cloth Diapers

If you’re a mama looking for a way to make a large impact on helping to create the change in reducing disposable diaper waste, cloth diapers are a must! Diapering a child in generic disposables typically costs more than $1400 over 2.5 years. In your baby’s first year of life you will likely throw away anywhere from 1500-1800 disposable diapers that take at least 500 years to decompose. This isn’t to make anyone feel bad, but if you’re obviously reading this article you’re already thinking about the earth and impact your making!

I chose to build my cloth diaper stash out with Nora’s Nursery Diapers. They are designed with the earth in mind, well-made, and cute too! I’m a fan of muted tones and Nora’s Nursery had it handled with their curated 7-pack diaper stashes.

Pro Tip for Mamas:

Create a baby registry using Babylist!

Babylist is an online baby registry that lets you curate your every want and need. Much like Pinterest, you can add products from literally any of your favorite stores.

3. Solly Baby Wraps

Solly Baby has a beautiful assortment of well-made wraps and loop carriers in both organic and sustainable materials. Made in the USA the fabric is sustainably sourced, biodegradable and durable enough to be machine washed and dried.

I personally have two of these wraps and love them for the newborn days. Your baby can fit snuggly against your chest while you go about your routine. These wraps are designed for babies 8 to 25 pounds and are a one size, universal fit.

They also have a loop carrier designed for babies 15-45 pounds when you’re little one gets heavier. Again in some of the most beautiful colors.

4. Design Dua Baby Bassinet

Handmade, fair-trade and chemical free the Design Dua Baby Bassinet is a stunning way to keep baby close to mom. They are handwoven using ancient weaving techniques with elephant grass. They also have a vegan collection of bassinets if that is important to you.

Whether you want baby next to your bedside or in the kitchen as you bustle around making breakfast, the Design Dua Baby Bassinet and Rocking Combo Set is a wonderful option.

5. Snuggle Me Organic Infant Lounger

Snuggle Me Organic Loungers come in both infant and toddler sizes uniquely designed to hug your baby’s body and create a safe space to play. They can help with tummy time, support for sitting up, or just be a cozy hangout for your little one. These loungers come in a variety of colors and have covers you can easily switch out when dirty.

The outer shell is made with 100% organic cotton, a non-toxic and safe material. The lounger is filled with polyester fiber

6. Phillips Avent Glass Baby Bottles

The Natural Philips Avent Baby Bottle is made of premium quality glass and BPA free material. As a mama, you don’t want to have to worry about different types of plastic and whether or not they’re safe. Glass bottles like these are also easy to clean and easily sterilized in boiling water.

If you want a non-toxic baby bottle, you can’t go wrong with glass.

Pro Tip for Mamas:

If you plan to use disposable diapers, including a clean unscented brand on your registry is a great idea. Choose a brand you can stand behind and tell your friends and family why!

You might also consider having a diaper raffle be a part of your baby shower or host a daddy diaper party for your man!

7. Mushie Organic Baby Swaddles

Every soon-to-be-mama should have an assortment of swaddle blankets on her registry. Whether it’s an extra layer of comfort during naptime snuggles or an impromptu nursing covers when you’re out and about, there are countless ways they come in handy. Mushie’s super soft, breathable baby swaddles are made from 100% organic cotton and come in a so many colors that will leave you wanting them all.

8. Nuna Carseats

Not only did we go with a Nuna carseat for it’s compact style, but fabric to foam and beyond, each element of their carseats are sourced to be both flame resistant and contain no added fire-retardant chemicals. Nuna uses high quality, durable materials and comply with the most current US federal and European chemical safety standards.

Your baby spends a lot of time in their carseat, especially when they are infants. So purchasing one from a brand you can stand behind is key!

9. Earth Mama Organic Diaper Balm + Other Earth Mama Products

I was turned onto using Earth Mama Organic Diaper Balm after using their Organic Nipple Butter Breastfeeding Cream when my son was born. It worked so well that I’ve slowly widened my use of their products and have loved every single one so far. Not only does it soothe your babies tooshie, but doubles as a multi-tasking skin salve.

The balm is formulated with organic lavender oil, tea tree oil, and other powerful herbs.

Pro Tip for Mamas:

Don’t forget to register for things you need as a new mom!

Nursing Pillows, Nipple Balm, and Breast Pumps are all just as important as the cute baby items you’ve been eyeing for your little one.

10. Newton Baby Crib Mattress

Just like a baby’s carseat, most infants will spend a lot of time in their crib for naps and during sleep. Newton Baby makes a safe and breathable mattress that is also 100% washable, from cover to core. All the Newton Baby Mattresses feature Breathe-Thru Technology that allows your baby to breathe right through the surface, reducing the risk of suffocation. NO foam, glue, latex or springs are used in the design of their mattresses helping your baby enjoy a cleaner, hypoallergenic sleep.
