Whilst doing my research on organic baby onesies, I found one of my favourite companies for organic baby bath products and creams, also produced organic baby clothes. I found many other wonderful organic baby onesies, however i was so impressed by the quality and variety this company had, I decided to dedicate the whole of this ‘Best of’ to Burt’s Bees Baby onesies.
Of course ‘the best of the rest’ will follow in another article. Where we have not personally used or owned any of the items mentioned in this article, we have formulated our recommendations through thorough research and analysis of the reviews of others.
Why has Burt’s Bees Baby impressed me so much?
Firstly they understand how difficult it can be to be a parent. They help with those of us who are striving to give our babies the purest start in life. By focusing on sustainability, they are able to bring us the highest quality organic products that are not only safe and great for your baby, but also for this wonderful planet of ours.
The company has a great ethic of trying to give back whenever possible. They really do live the saying ‘In a world where you can be anything, be kind’. They do this through much charitable work, including donating products and by volunteering in their community. They are happy to roll up their sleeves and go clean Sea shores or work on farms. They really do encapsulate the meaning of connection and community and it is inspiring.
We have discussed so many times why it is so important to go organic for your baby, yourself and your home. Whilst I don’t want this to become a plea for the earth in a baby onesie post, I figure now is as good a time as any to point out, our earth needs us. The production of mass produced throwaway products is truly taking it’s toll on our world.
Burt’s Bees Baby uses high quality 100% organic cotton, which they tell is earth friendly. They have achieved GOTS certification which means they meet the highest global standard for organic textiles. The great thing about Burt’s Bees Baby is they offer us this premium organic quality at surprisingly affordable prices!
Why is organic cotton so much better?
- It is better for your baby’s delicate skin. Your baby has not had the time to build the protective layer that us adults have. in fact it can take years, so your baby’s skin is thinner and much more porous than our adult skin, this makes it incredibly vulnerable to anything we put on it.
- If we use products with harmful chemicals these are more likely to penetrate the different levels of your baby’s skin.As we have seen in our article ‘The Organic Pregnancy’, some of these chemicals used in the growth of cotton and the production of clothes are really toxic.
- Organic cotton is naturally much softer than non organic cotton. it is important to know, not all organic cotton is created equal. Burt’s Bees baby clothes are GOTS certified. This means that not only the growing processes are regulated, but also the dying process too.
- Organic cotton is friendly to our earth, our farmers, ourselves and our babies. Burt’s Bees Baby tell us their organic cotton is 100% pure. This means that they have not used any synthetic pesticides or fertilisers in the growing of it. This is not only good for your baby and their delicate thin skin, but also for our farmers and producers as they do not come into daily contact with these harmful sustances.
What does GOTS Certification actually mean?
We hear this saying and claim all the time when researching and reviewing organic products and here at Natural organic For Baby, we have told you companies have it lots, but what does GOTS actually mean?
GOTS is the Global Organic Textile standard and if a a company is certified it means that they have the highest rating there is for all things organic. The fact that Burt’s Bees Baby has this certification gives you the peace of mind that they also support your desire to help the earth and provide your baby with a green, natural and organic start.
What is so great about Burt’s Bees Baby Onesies?
They have really thought of everything. when I think back to the Onesies I loved and that my two loved getting into, Burt’s Bees Baby have really captured that with their design.
They have designed everything perfect for the new Parent coping with a new baby. With features like protective Zip guards, some of the smaller sizes have no scratch mittens attached, perfect for stopping your baby scratching themselves. And some are made with non slip bee grips, which is indespensible for when you baby gets on the move or even starts walking!
But let’s not wish our babies very first weeks and months away. Lets look at these Onesies.
They are made from the purest Layer 100% organic GOTS certified cotton, which is breathable and will help regulate your baby’s temperature, stopping them getting too cold or too hot, which is key to reducing the risk of SIDS (Sudden infant Death Syndrome)
This design is sporty yet sweet. A snug fitting footie pyjama that is made from ‘The purest Layer’ ™ 100% organic cotton. Which makes a snuggly onesie that is great for sensitive skin. These have elastic ankles and non sleep ‘bee grips’ on the bottom of the feet, for complete non slip safety.
The diagonal zip design makes it much easier to get those nappy changes done quick and efficiently, which will be a great help in those first weeks. All their Onesies are machine washable for convenient cleaning, as let’s face it a baby onesie is probably going to spend as much time in the washing machine as it is on your baby.
This design is available in sizes 0-3 months up to 24 months.
This design is roomier with a loose fit, which allows for more wriggle room. This design also comes with the convenient diagonal zip design, and includes the no-scratch mittens on sizes New-born and 0-3 months, which is the time your new baby is most likely to scratch themselves as they reach out to their face a lot as the move.
Made with gentle organic cotton and also features the non slip bee grip booties.
Lovely Unisex design in super soft 100% organic cotton, giving you the peace of mind that no toxic chemicals or bad stuff, is going to get anyway near your precious baby. With a choice of 15 designs, you are bound to find a design you absolutely love. Avaliable in sizes Newborn to 24 months.
Again these lovely designs come with the no slip grip booties for safety for the baby on the move.

When analysing and researching all of the onsies and sleepers above, they all come highly recommended. I guess it will just be down to what designs you really love. I wish i had, had this choice when my two were younger, as organic onesies, back then, mainly came in white or neutral colours.
A good quality baby onesie is going to be a piece of clothing that you use extremely frequently in the first few months. As your baby gets older you will use one every night. So these onesies are going to be on your baby a lot of the time. Burt’s Bees Baby give you the peace of mind that if you choose one of their sleepers above, only the best 100% organic soft cotton will be touching your new preciuous delicate baby.
