Thankfully, we have many sustainable gift options available that are good for babies and our planet.

Throw in a pack of biodegradable baby wipes, and voila, you have the perfect eco-friendly baby gift-ready.

Swaddling Blankets

Swaddle is a traditional technique of wrapping a baby up gently in a light, breathable blanket to help them fall asleep. Because newborns spend most of their time swaddled in a blanket, it is worth gifting them swaddling blankets that are made of soft, 100% cotton fabric to wrap them up in snugness and safety. To make it exciting, blankets with fun print and colors are just the ticket.

Cloth Diapers

Being environmentally conscious as a parent can be pretty challenging. The first few weeks can baffle you with the amount of waste produced – diapers, tissues, baby wipes – all deteriorating to mother earth. A year-old baby can go through 3,000 diaper changes! To ease this eco-guilt, consider gifting newborn cloth diapers for babies who are gentle on their skin and kind to the environment. Cloth diapers can be washed and reused several times and thus make an excellent gift for parents looking to reduce their carbon footprint (and expenses).

With a baby food maker, parents can make baby food at home full of healthy nutrition and love. Whether they need to make a quick purée or steam veggies, a baby food maker is extremely useful for conscious parenting.

Bibs & Placemats

They would love to use food-safe baby feeding products that are environment-friendly.

Eco-Friendly Toys

Eco-friendly gifts for babies are not hard to find if its toys. As the little geniuses grow up, they love to have numerous toys around that satisfy their curiosity. Keep those little hands busy (and allow their mum and dad a breathing space) by gifting them eco-friendly toys like a squeezable ball or a baby gym. You can also give BPA-free teething toys for when the ‘mouthing objects’ phase starts to ensure that the babies do not consume harmful materials while playing.

Eco-Friendly Feeding Utensils

Look for durability, non-toxicity, and sustainability when buying feeding utensils for babies.
