All babygrows are the same you say? Well that’s not quite true. While they all serve a very similar purpose, next time you pop one in your basket or hit that buy now button you may want to take a take note of the fabric.

Organic cotton has fast become a go-to for baby brands both high street and designer.

Better for baby with its super soft qualities with no nasty chemicals to irritate precious skin; better for parents as they’ll stand the test of time and countless washing, and better for our lovely planet too.

According to The Soil Association organic cotton emits up to 46 per cent less greenhouse gas than non-organic.

It’s better for water than conventionally produced cotton too, organic farming allows for healthy soil to become like a sponge, soaking up water during floods and holding it for longer in times of drought.

Organic fibres are grown without nasty chemicals, and organic cotton farmers get a much better price for their crop, so everyone is a winner. In the UK, there are two independent organic certifications: The Soil Association Certification and the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) so when making your next babygrow purchase look out for these.

An all-in-one, a romper, a bodysuit – they’re all babygrows to us, and we’ve put to the test a fine selection of strictly organic babygrows.

Trialling and rating them in terms of ease of wear, comfort, design, cost and production methods, and we’ve given kudos for any additional eco credentials too.

You can trust our independent reviews. We may earn commission from some of the retailers, but we never allow this to influence selections. This revenue helps us to fund journalism across The Independent.

The verdict: Organic cotton babygrows

For us, the winner has to be From Babies with Love for keeping it strictly organic, going above on beyond to look after others less fortunate and all the while producing a wonderful babygrow with its INPO x From Babies with Love multi-print organic babygrow. We also fell head over heels for Polarn O.Pyret’s adorable wraparound baby bodysuits, and it should be applauded for its nifty design features.
