It matters where your baby sleeps. In addition to purchasing non-toxic baby furniture and an organic crib mattress, another important purchase is your baby’s bedding. Newborns can sleep for a total of up to 20 hours a day, so it’s important to have pure, organic baby sheets and bedding available for them to rest their little heads on. And the good news is that organic baby sheets don’t have to be super expensive. Here are some recommendations for soft, high-quality baby bedding that’s also affordable.
Organic Baby Sheets and Bedding:
Here are some of the highest quality and most cost-effective options for organic baby sheets.
Crib Sheets (Cotton)
Burt’s Bees Baby makes wonderful and affordable oh-so-soft organic sheets that are made in India with GOTS-certified cotton. With these sheets, you’re getting high-quality organic bedding at a great price.
You may find Burt’s Bees Baby on Zulily from time to time, though it’s best to shop directly from Burt’s Bees Baby for the widest selection. We have used the same sheets for over 3 years and they have lasted through several washes. I really can’t complain about them! (Oh and if you do shop directly from Burt’s Bees Baby’s website, check out their crib skirts and quilts.)
I’ve also gotten great feedback about the organic sheets from Pottery Barn Kids. YourEcoFamily makes nice organic sheets as well. American Baby also makes organic sheets, but they are manufactured in China.
Crib Sheets (Flannel)
If you live in a colder climate, you may want to consider flannel sheets to help keep your baby warmer at night. Please just make sure that your baby won’t be too warm and bundled up.

And finally, SwaddleDesigns makes a flannel crib sheet, that is manufactured in the USA. It’s not organic, but it does the job.
