. Every baby appreciates eco-friendly, non-toxic products made with natural hemp! No doubt your baby will love the comfort without knowing the non-toxic or the nutritional benefits. It is worthwhile to buy hemp products for your baby, but it important to determine if it is right for you as hemp products currently cost more than generally available products.
This is not an easy decision for some as cost and convenience are high priority when baby arrives. This post is designed to be a helpful showcase of which hemp baby products are being sold and to see if they would be a benefit to you and your family.
Here is important buyer criteria for hemp baby products!
- Is the product safe for your baby?
- Is it durable; can it really take the wear and tear of everyday life?
- Is it appealing? Does it taste good, feel good? smell good? look good? …after all we are talking babies.
- Are there really nutritional health benefits that stand out?
- Is it something you can afford to buy?
- Where can you buy quality, organic hemp baby products?
Here is my line-up of the 5 best organic hemp baby products for 2018:
I always try to leave with a question as hemp is a re-emerging industry and we should have questions!
1)The Best Hemp Baby Swaddling Blanket! How Comforting!
There is a company out of California that is essentially a cottage industry that started in 2009 called ilovebad. They have a shop on etsy.com and sell many of their organic hemp “essentials” on Amazon which is where I found these baby swaddling blankets. The blankets are a double layer of 55% hemp “fleece” and 45% organic cotton The color choices are lavender, tangerine or sea foam green. It is unique that they have hemp fleece (SOFT) as usually that is a man-made component. ilovebad uses
” target=”_blank”>Hemp Traders as their distributor. The blankets are described as having the weightiness that leads to good sleep at the same time being lightweight. Hemp is known for its all weather features….allowing you to feel very warm in the winter and cool in the summer without the sweat factor because it is also a breathable material. Hemp is known for its durability (and also for a fair amount of lint at the start). ” target=”_blank”>Click here to learn more about these hemp blankets!
The conclusion is this mold and bacteria resistant fabric is non-toxic, very comforting and safe for your baby.
The cost is $54 plus shipping on Amazon and because it is a durable fabric- well worth it. When the day finally arrives and it is time to throw away the blanket…hopefully after years of loving use, rest assured hemp just returns to the earth without a carbon footprint.
2) Best Hemp Diapers for Your Baby! What is selling in 2018!
This is what matters when it comes to diapers:
Do they fit? Do they leak? Do they rub? Do they hold up in the wash?
And if you are considering hemp as a diaper you are also looking for an eco-friendly approach to an age-old necessity. Also hemp is non-toxic, it doesn’t require pesticides, it is bacteria resistant and hypo-allergenic. These are practical concerns in our modern times. Remember: hemp comes from the earth and simply returns to the earth.
I have chosen the ” target=”_blank”>Heavy wetter hemp/organic cotton nighttime diaper by Ecoable for sale in a pack of two with inserts for sale on Amazon. These need a diaper cover to completely work. This product is made in China …a country that is ahead of the United States in hemp cultivation. Apparently parents with infants who sleep through the night are very happy with these diapers and how well they hold up. They don’t leak or rub…and they can handle a heavy wetter…and that’s not easy. The inserts are a big help with absorbency.
Thirsties, Inc is a cottage industry out of Colorado and they make an absorbent cloth hemp diaper with a patented pre-fold design. Thirsties are more for everyday diaper wear and come in two sizes…they can be folded in different ways that help soak up wetness.! ” target=”_blank”>click here to learn more about Thirsties on Amazon
Thirsties get mixed reviews in the “do they hold up in the wash?” category. Some are very satisfied while others found these hemp diapers actually came apart after being washed a few times and were not worth the money. I wonder if it is because individuals are hard at work in a new industry where there is still a learning curve. It seems to me hemp and organic cotton as a blend are most effective.
There is another company who have the cloth diaper made with hemp and cotton and they include bright colorful prints on the outer wrap. They have the same two part system using the hemp cloth as the insert to do the soak up and the snug but not rubbing outer wrap to protect from seepage. This is one of the best hemp diaper companies out there in my opinion called Ragababe and they also source from Hemp Traders. Click here to learn more and find out how to order!
3) Best Hemp Baby Clothing out There… More Choices Than Ever!
How about a 100% organic cotton fabric “onesie” by Rawganique? Well it is sure cute and soft and eco-friendly and, even though it is 100% cotton without the hemp, it deserves a mention, for its sustainability and hypoallergenic features alone!. Rawganique is a company that primarily manufactures products made with hemp fabrics. A nice quality about hemp is that it chums up well with other sustainable products…often fabrics are a blend of hemp and 100% organic cotton. It pairs well with flax and bamboo too.

This ORGANIC COTTON ONESIE BABYBODIES comes in 4 sizes…the smallest fits 3-6 month old the largest 18-24 month old. It has a snap crotch and the shoulders overlap.

It is made by Rawganique in the USA without sweat shop labor…making it more a labor of love.
This onesie goes well with a BABY AVIATOR ORGANIC HAT also by Rawganique made of the same 100% organic cotton. It is also soft and cute and costs $11.00 ( I noticed at the time of this post it is half price!).
What is all the fuss about 100% organic cotton versus the conventional cotton we are all used to wearing? This website for ONNO tee shirts out of Colorado will give you a good idea about the negatives of conventional cotton. In summary, it is the USA’s second largest crop and tons of pesticides of the worst kind are used to grow it. The cultivation also requires a huge amount of water and often times cotton goes to sweat shops for the final steps of production. If I might add, about the time that hemp cultivation became forbidden in the U.S., cotton became the industry leader. There is more to that story…
Click here to see adorable onesie made with organic cotton blended with hemp it is called a Hemp Snappie made by earth creations out of Alabama. It is only available in a very natural color called moss. This company dyes their hemp cloth with natural clay. How very wonderful!

Is your baby 7 months or older? Maybe it is time to include hemp hearts or hemp protein powder in your baby’s diet. How and why? According to this little foodies website hemp provides such a balance of super food nutrition in easy to digest form that they are perfect for children…even very young ones. Hemp is high in balanced plant protein and EFAs that we all need. Ruth Aaron provides the recommended serving size for your toddler so as not to overdo at too early an age. I don’t know if you have ever tried hemp hearts (raw and hulled hemp seeds), but they are almost “buttery” and quite soft and most children are very happy to eat them. Do what makes sense with your baby of course…some ways to serve hemp hearts is to mix into mashed baby foods (avocado, sweet potato, bananas etc) or sprinkled on yogurt. A very easy way to serve hemp is to blend hemp protein powder into a smoothie or similar .hempinformer is a good website to verify recommended serving sizes.
