Under The Nile Organic Cotton Clothing

I love putting soft, comfy cotton clothing on babies. There is just something so comforting about sliding their tiny arms and legs into cozy, cottony sleeves and pants. It makes me so happy to see them comfortable and when you pick them up they feel so silky and delicious.

When you use Organic Egyptian Cotton the clothing is just softer and silkier. Under the Nile is an ethical brand that has the yummiest, softest egyptian organic cottong clothing.

First of all, before we get to how cute the clothing is lets discuss why we would want to use organic baby clothing. It is sometimes more expensive (however not in the case of Under the Nile clothing) and you can't really see a difference so what is the point? Why go organic??

Conventional cotton contains pesticide residues as well as many chemicals used in the finish of the cotton. The dangerous pesticides end up on the your or you baby's skin through direct contact with the fabric, and can absorbed by the body through the skin. These chemicals affect many people. Not only does conventional cotton negatively impact peoples health, but also it seriously affects our environment. Cotton pesticides contaminate our ground and surface water. Birds are killed from aerial spraying, and fish are killed from pesticides polluting streams and rivers.

Now that we have that figured out let's talk clothing!

Adorable, Adorable, Adorable are three words I would use to describe Under the Nile clothing. Oh, I almost forgot-they are also super practical!

Elasticized waists, snaps, fold-over cuffs and easy to wash make Under the Nile clothing super easy to use and maintain. Diaper changing is always easy, side snap undershirts are great for newborns, footed pants keep little toesies warm-all practicalities that make life with a newborn so much easier. No worries about itchy seams, narrow necks, rough fabric, unhealthy chemicals-with Under the Nile you are getting the best of everything.

Under the Nile offers an alternative to conventional cotton apparel for infants and children. All products are made from 100% handpicked organic cotton, without the use of pesticides or chemicals throughout the entire production process. Grown exclusively in Egypt, the products reflect the extremely soft and durable features that Egyptian cotton is known for. Under the Nile's dyeing process uses metal-free or vegetable dyes. Accessories such as buttons and zippers are made from organically friendly elements such as wood, shell or nickel-free metals.

BTW, they also make adorable, organic stuffed toys that are great for teething and pretend play.


  1. They are so cute and comfy for baby. I also like that I don't see these around much so my baby has something unique :)

  2. It is necessary for a child to wear comfy and soft clothes, especially for a newborn. Also, clothes don't have to cause allergies.
