We couldn’t be happier to introduce another new affiliate, Natural Collection. We have come across this company many times during my last years search for natural and organic wonderment for you, your baby and your home.
When we go in search of sourcing new companies we would love to recommend and share with you, our reader, we have very high standards, on the ethical, and environmentally friendly and sustainability front.
However, every time the most important measure is, do we love the products?, would we buy them ourselves?, and would we recommend them to our friends and family?. If the answer is yes then we shout about them here at Natural organic for babies, so you can share in the natural organic finds.
Natural Collection have a vision and one they strongly believe in. They believe in a no judgment approach to ethical and environmental retail. They embrace every one of you that want to go more environmentally friendly, whether that be one or two products, or those of you who are passionate enough to completely change the way you live completely.
They tell us they are here to support us all with our ethical purchasing. Natural Collection aim to empower you to make choices that are right for you and your family.
What we love about them is are committed to help you ‘buy what you believe’.
They source the best natural, fair trade, sustainable and environmental ethical companies and products and offer you a vast array and choice of environmentally goodness.
Offering something for everyone including Fashion, Home and Garden, Beauty, Cleaning and household, and they even do amazing organic groceries!.
As we all acknowledge, there is still a long way to go in order to make a more environmentally friendly and ethical consumerism part of the retail mainstream norm. However natural Collection (and us at Natural Organic for Babies), ask that we work together to each play our part in getting that message across the Uk and the world.
So today I am going to spread the message on the wonderful range of the best natural organic baby clothes at Natural Collection UK.
When you first dress your new born baby, there are two key items (besides a nappy) that you will no doubt be using. These two will become the staple of your precious baby’s first weeks.
They are the iconic baby grow and baby body suit. Believe me when I tell you, one of these are going to be on your baby every day (sometimes multiple times a day).
I would recommend for planning for around 3 body suits a day and two baby grows. You may be lucky and have no change days, or you might (like me) have the delight of a five outfit change day and beyond.
It is important to know that if you are due to have a C-section, you may have an extended stay in hospital, so it is best to pack for at least five days.
Again if you have a partner or friends and family who can bring in clean clothes for you and baby, you may be able to pack slightly lighter.
When you give birth, the Midwife will clean up your baby and wrap them in a towel or blanket, allowing you to have skin on skin time. After that they (or your birthing partner) will put a nappy and a first outfit on them. Baby grows make the perfect first outfit.
I made the mistake when I was expecting Jack, to buy lots of very cute but very complicated outfits in a newborn size. Whilst these looked incredibly sweet, they were fiddly and difficult to put on and off, and Jack got incredibly irritated by it all.
I absolutely love the range and choice of natural organic baby grows and body suits available for your new born. In particular the ranges by Frugi, From babies with Love, Kite and Little Green radicals, who do some fabulous Eco graphic baby grows.
I particularly love the From babies with love range of organic baby grows that have matching organic swaddle blankets, available in duck, frog, rabbit and monkey designs.
I also love their organic baby grow and hat sets. How cute and functional is that!, I have to admit, I am a bit of a person who loves to match things.
This company has really caught my heart as well as my eye, as not only do they offer a lovely range of organic baby clothes, but they are a foundation who supports orphaned and abandoned children around the world! These really are the ultimate gift to the children of the earth.
I also really adore the Little Green Radicals range of baby grow with wonderful graphics like ‘Give peas a chance’, and ‘Locally produced’, and my particular favourite ‘wind farm’.
I could share pretty much most of the whole range of baby grows from Natural Collection, there is something about a baby grow that brings back wonderful memories of those first weeks and months with my babies.
Instead, I will let you discover your own favourites.
Natural Collection offer a huge choice of T-shirts and tops for your baby.
From babies with love
From the wonderful simple range ‘From babies with love’, matching the baby grows I mentioned earlier with the frog, monkey, rabbit design. Here they also introduce a really cute penguin character to their graphic ensemble.
As mentioned the wonderful people at from babies with love, donate the profits from the sale of these clothes to their foundation that supports orphaned and abandoned children.
I personally love the vintage simplicity of their design, with the quality of 100% GOTS certified organic cotton.
Kite offer a wonder array of bright and bold graphic t shirts, with both short and long sleeves. Many of the designs for the younger babies have a really handy popper design, which make getting the top on and off much easier.
With really cute characters and a lovely story to go with each one, these t shirts will really appeal to both you and your babies and toddlers. All Kite T-shirts are made with 100% GOTS certified organic cotton and are packaged in a recyclable plastic bag!.
They are also a company that champion all workers having rights and minimum wages. Frugi also donate 1 % of their turnover to chosen charities helping people all over the world!.
Their range is colourful and I particularly love their rainbow range. Frugi also have a wonderful bright range with different vehicle graphics.
I’m sure you will also find something you and your new baby will absolutely love.
Rompers and Dungarees
Rompers are perfect for the warmer summer months. I remember both Jack and Jessica loving their rompers, I think it was because of the freedom it gave them.
A romper has open feet and can have short or long legs and short or long arms, so can adapt to the weather and seasons.
Kite has some gorgeous rompers, I really like their bubble rompers for the summer months as they have no legs and are vest style sleeve. Again Kite make this in 100% certified organic cotton, making it really soft and comfortable for your baby. This also comes in a recyclable plastic bag.
Another style that I my two really loved wearing was the short sleeve romper.
Kite have a great range of designs ranging from a whale graphic to a strawberry. All perfect for the summer months or if you are taking your baby away on holiday somewhere nice and warm.
I loved this style of romper and had quite a few of them in different designs, as they were really easy to get on and off, with the popper at the neck, and really easy to do a quick nappy change, with the poppers around the nappy area.
The final romper style is a bit like a baby grow, but without the feet in.
Again mine loved these, especially Jack who was an incredibly sensitive baby when it came to fabrics and styles. He loved and felt comfortable in these. You just need to pair them with a cute pair of baby socks.
I loved the organic cotton knit rompers for the cooler days. Kite have some ultra cute designs including bears and sheep. These are everything you and your baby could want from a romper.
Dungarees are the perfect combo to a t shirt or baby suit. Again they don’t have the feet that baby grows have and they tend to have the traditional dungaree/over the shoulder design.
They are trendy and versatile. Most are really comfortable and are perfect for your baby when they start to move or crawl.
I have to be honest my son Jack did not like the stiffer denim style ones, he cried as soon as I put anything like that on him, however the organic cotton ones that were more flexible he absolutely loved.
I love that Kite offer matching designs and themes across their whole range making it really easy to mix and match.
Trousers and Shorts
Both of my ‘babies’ were highly sensitive to all things but most of all their clothes (and still are at 10 and 13!).
So as much as I absolutely loved the design of the jeans and the chords or the chinos, neither of mine would tolerate them. The minute I put them on they would get irritated, uncomfortable and cry. Friend babies however, were quite happy to rock the cute jeans etc.
I also personally found joggers and tights easier to put on and much easier to negotiate nappy changes. But again this is a personal choice and you may be a dab hand at negotiating the jeans.
I adore the Frugi joggers and leggings that match their t shirts and knitwear perfectly (like I said, I am a bit of a matcher).
Jessica would also love joggers and leggings or just tights. I particularly love Kite’s range of organic leggings. These, again, are really nice and easy to get on a wriggling baby multiple times a day!
What I love about the Kite and Frugi range is that they are bright and bold and embrace really lovely character designs that every baby and toddler will love as much as you.
Dresses and Skirts
The range at Natural Collection did not disappoint either, I was like a Mama in a candy shop!.
Unfortunately my girl is now nearly 11 and no longer into cute dresses, just crop tees and leggings (apparently). So I guess I’ll have to just share my loves and cute organic finds with you.
I am going to honest, I could quite easily rave about every single dress that the wonderful Kite and Frugi have to offer us, however 3 styles really stood out to me as those I would have loved back when Jessica was a baby (and Jessica would have too).
Kite’s Rainbow Hopscotch Mailibu Sun dress makes you want to have it, just from its name. Frugi’s wonderful reversible dress, and Kites range of bright fun t shirt dresses.all had me reaching for the buy button (until I stopped myself as I don’t have a baby anymore)
The first dress that really caught my eye, was one by Frugi, with their wonderful idea of a reversible dress. This therefore gives you two dresses in one. Worn alone or with a t-shirt under, it gives real versatility, which I loved.
Made from 100% organic cotton this dress is Vegan friendly, so perfect for us Eco conscious herbivores out there. Being a vegetarian I really care about the impact on animals that our consumerism has.
To have a wonderful organic baby dress that assures us no animals were harmed in its making, is wonderful!, and just made me love this even more!
Kites range of T-shirt style dresses are perfect for the summer months, paired with their fabulous high bright socks, I can see most baby girls really rocking this look and loving it.
Knitwear and Jumpers
A good jumper or cardigan, can transform your baby’s summer outfit into one suitable for the cooler evenings or colder months, making your baby’s’s summer wardrobe last a few more seasons.
Natural Collection bring you some of Frugi and Kite’s wonderful colour, characters and organic quality knitwear. Kite brings you ‘happy hare’ and Frugi brings you Wilfred the dinosaur. Each company knowing that colour and character is what both you and your baby will love.
I remember both Jack and Jessica having favourite clothes and they were usually the ones with cute characters like these. To have this cute design combined with the softness and quality of organic materials, make me not be able to recommend them high enough.
Coats and Jackets
With rain wear made from 100% recycled polyester you can still keep your children dry whilst keeping your environmentally friendly ethics.
Kite offer you the choice of jackets and coats, where not only environmental impact has been thought of, but they deliver style and quality too. Their coats are made from 100% organic cotton and fleece, or utilise recycled materials.
They also packaged all of their products in plastic that is recyclable. What more could you want from buying a children’s coat?
Pyjamas and underwear
What I really loved too, is that they have underwear for the potty training phase, but still with great bright cute designs.
This makes it so much more fun and easir to get a toddler to embrace potty training. Jessica absolutely loved her first pairs of ‘grown up pants’. and I am sure yours will love these too.
There is something so cute and memorable about baby socks.
I remember when I was pregnant (and in the nesting stage), opening the top drawer in my nursery and seeing the tiny pairs of baby socks all folded up awaiting the arriving of their wearer.
Those little socks turn into bigger socks, those bigger socks, turn into ‘fashion accessories’ for the fussy toddler.
Natural Collection see you through all the sock stages with their usual organic goodness, allowing you to build your own memories with them. Occasionally an old baby sock will appear from nowhere in our house, and it just makes you pause and smile.
