Environmentally Friendly Baby Clothes

At 9 months pregnant, I am in FULL nesting mode.  My husband watched distantly and called me crazy, as I washed every onesie, blanket, and burp cloth last week; pre-sorted, organized, and re-sorted; and folded and unfolded.  I am so grateful to all of the friends and family who bought clothes for my daughter - but I can't help but browse for more!  Baby clothes are just so... BABY!

Of course, the most green way to keep baby in cute duds, is by borrowing or buying consignment.  Just google baby and consignment in your state, and you should be able to find at least a couple near you (my favorite local shop is "They Grow So Fast" in Lafayette, California).  Also, garage sales, and flea markets are a good way to go.  (As with any children's clothes, it's always a good idea to wash well before puting them on baby's sensitive skin).

And then, try to save new items for special occasions and buy organic and/or local.  While my baby isn't here yet, so I can't give a thorough review, so far I have liked:

I'd love to hear recommendations for local green baby stores in your areas, product reviews, etc.  Keep an eye out for more baby-centered articles as my baby enters the world and I get a chance to try different products.


That green thing is so cute. 

That green thing is so cute.  I'll need that for my winter baby!
