ooooo baby! bamboosa organics (review & giveaway)

I’ve got babies on my mind.  Well, baby – singular.  It’s quite possible that it’s due to the little one that is in my belly.  I just hit the 21 week mark, so we are officially more than halfway to when we get to meet the latest Ferry addition.

This pregnancy is different, but similar this time around.  The baby belly is growing at a noticeably faster rate than with Beckett and the first trimester sickness blues have subsided.  But, there isn’t this all-consuming, always thinking-about-it kind of feeling and sense of “oh-my-God-what-have-we-gotten-ourselves-into”.  It’s just as miraculous and the baby butterfly kicks and somersaults are just as fantastic and wonderful, but it’s more chill.  Kind of go with the flow.

Being an eco-conscious mommy, I am thinking about the dozen bins of baby clothes I have kept from Beckett.  I am fully aware of how each one of those pink outfits and snuggly, footed pajamas translates into dollar savings and earth savings if we have another girl.  This baby is special.  He or she is a blessing and I am spending a bit of money here or there to get things that are just for him or her.  Not a hand-me-down or a borrowed big sister item, but just a handful of things that are hers and hers alone.

This post is the kick-off to the start of some blog posts focused on baby products that I have for the new little one, would love to get my hands on or think you should hear about.  Here’s to the “Bundle of Baby” section!

Bamboosa: Organic Clothing for the Whole Family

Purchasing clothing and bedding made from organic materials was not even on our radar when Beckett was born in August 2008.  As she has grown and acquired more clothing and things have needed replacing, we have slowly transitioned over to organic.  Most of her wardrobe is consignment-purchases with the occasional screaming deal of off-the-rack organic, and she now sleeps on an organic mattress and sheets.  I am trying with this new little one to incorporate more organic clothing into his/her wardrobe and replace the fire-retardant sprayed onesies and pajamas with chemical-free versions.

Bamboosa is a wonderful company that makes organic clothing and accessories for the entire family.  All of their products and the fabrics that they are assembled from are made in the USA and certified organic.  And, true to the name – the clothing is made from bamboo.  Bamboo is an extremely eco-friendly plant for manufacturing because it is highly sustainable and it’s phenomenally rapid growth rate makes it ideally renewable.

One of my weaknesses when it comes to children’s décor, books and clothing are things that center on the alphabet.  I love it when people can take the classic theme and put a twist on it.  Bamboosa has done just that with their adorable new BambooBaby line of printed tees, pants, onesies and cuddlesacs.  I snagged a baby onesie with a sweet chick on the front that says “C is for Cage Free”!  I love our chickens and I love what a farm-fresh (suburban farm that is) egg tastes like from a happy, healthy layer.  The double entendre of “W is for Wind Power” makes me chuckle and the “F is for Farm Grown” is just plain sweet.

I love clothing that serves the dual purpose of sending a message straight from an adorably, chubby round baby body and keeping that same body wrapped and warm in a chemical-free, uber-cute and eco-conscious fabric.  Bamboosa has found a way to do just that.  Their adult clothing is fashionable and beautifully dyed with natural hues.  The extensive BambooBaby line will stock your little one up with organic washcloths, sheets, blankets and a whole wardrobe of cuteness!

    How fun! I would love to have one for our new baby! If I got to design a baby outfit I would have it say, “Bringing home a baby bumble bee” on a tiny new sleep sack for brand new baby. Our last name is Bybee…so I think the play on words would be fun.
