You’ve got your beautiful little bundle and you’re ready to dress them up in adorable clothes, but have you thought about what you’re going to dress them up in? Cotton is the most common fabric in baby clothes. It is breathable, washable and, unfortunately, filled with pesticides.

Accounting for almost 16% of all insecticides and 6.8% of all herbicides used worldwide, conventionally grown cotton is considered the dirtiest crop in the world. When you think of all the chemicals that cotton can be mixed with, it doesn’t seem like the best thing for dressing a baby. Fortunately, conventionally grown cotton isn’t the only choice. GOTS-certified organic cotton is pesticide-free and grown more sustainably overall.

Fortunately, more and more companies are turning to organic cotton and textiles. If you think organic means more expensive, think again! Just because you’re buying clean, organic, sustainable products for your baby doesn’t mean you have to put their college fund on hold.

Here are some of our favorite brands that make sustainable, organic baby clothes, each at an affordable price.

1. Burt’s Bees
