I love cute baby and toddler clothes - who doesn't right? So I love them even more when I find clothes that are organic. Fig Leaf Baby offers an adorable line of organic clothing for preemies/newborns and infants/toddlers. A little bit about the company:
"Fig Leaf Baby started with co-founder Jaclyn's casual search for a baby shower gift. Frustrated with the lack of truly unique, high quality products available, she decided to make her own. When the simple contemporary design of her embroidered onesie was the hit of the shower, she knew she was on to something much bigger. After building a team, we conceived an idea - an idea founded on the premise that children's fashion is not only about the children. Rather, the clothing is often a reflection of the parents' own unique style and personality. Combining smart design, creative writing, and high quality materials, Fig Leaf Baby was born!"You can choose from kimono style dresses and bodysuits or my personal favorite, shirts and bodysuits from the "First Words" line. The 100% Organic Peruvian Pima cotton tops come in either white or in a nice selection of colors that are dyed with organic vegetable dyes. They are then embroidered with cute words and sayings like "Play Dating" and "Early Bird" or "Preemie Donna" for preemies. Of course the outfit would not be complete without a pair of the coordinating pants! I am also happy to see that they have a good amount of options for preemies. My boys were all full-term, but I have small babies so I need preemie clothes in the very beginning.
Fig Leaf Baby was generous enough to send me a 0-3 month bodysuit for my new baby. Baby boy 4 is due just a week before Christmas, so I was given the "Santa Baby" bodysuit.
I seriously cannot wait for him to get here so I can try this on him. The cotton is so incredibly soft and stitching is really well done. My plan is to use this bodysuit for when we take photos for the announcements. I do think I need to get some matching green pants though, it needs to be a complete set! Obviously I couldn't take a picture of him in it yet, but I promise that you can see pictures of him in it on here come December!
Fig Leaf Baby is dedicated to social responsibility. "Aside from ensuring an eco-friendly process and using 100% organic materials, FLB believes that you get back out of life what you put in.
