Okay, before you stock up on all kinds of organic baby clothing, have a look at the label first. As a new mom, the last thing you're going to want to do (or have time to do) is take individual pieces of baby clothing, hand wash them, and hang them on the line to dry. It wouldn't be so bad if it were just one or two pieces of clothing here and there. But babies spit, burp, and poop all over their clothes. A lot. You don't to spend your whole day hand washing organic baby clothing.
If you're in the market for organic baby clothing, try a place like prettybabies.com where you can buy Babysoy products. These clothes are made from a 50-50 combination of soybean fiber and pure cotton. Everything goes into the washer, just not the dryer. If you have a flat screen to lay the clothes on you can do that, you can hang them on the clothesline, or find another place to lay them out.
Don't worry though, it's nowhere near as time-consuming as it sounds. These are baby clothes after all. They're small, dry very quickly (the soybean fiber has a quick drying effect made to whisk wetness away from the baby) and take up very little space.
So, go ahead and buy organic baby clothing. Just look for less fussy fabrics like those found in Babysoy products.
