Baby bedding has come a long way in the 6 years since I had my first daughter. Once limited for choice by major department stores now stylish and savvy mamas are coming up with their own beautiful designs for our baby’s and toddler’s rooms.
But not only are stylish and colourful designs important for making your baby’s bed a beautiful place to sleep, but also the right fabric for the best and most comfortable sleep.
I’m a big fan of organic cotton; not only is it the best fabric for your baby’s soft and delicate skin, but the softness and the texture of 100% organic cotton means it will last longer with regular washing and use.
The newest brand to launch onto the baby linen market is Cotton Seeds, the designs from Brisbane mama of two Aditi, who was looking for gender neutral, environmentally friendly bedding options for her own babies. Frustrated with the lack of options, Aditi designed, sourced and created her own brand, and Cotton Seeds was born.
Keen to provide durable and organic cotton linen, Aditi juddled motherhood with sourcing the highest-quality organic cotton sheeting she could find, taking her all the way back to her birth country India, where traditional farming methods are still used to produce 100% organic cotton. The particular cotton Aditi uses for Cotton Seeds is Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and OneCert certified, making it environmentally friendly AND the best materials available for your baby’s skin.
Even better for your baby, Cotton Seeds linen is hand-printed using patented herbal dyes – incredibly gentle and much better for baby’s skin because the dyes are made from medicinally rich herbs and roots, without using harmful synthetic dyes used in a lot of mainstream textiles.
The muslin wrap is fantastic because it’s so big and square, so will swaddle wrap around your baby nicely, and also doubles as a wrap to cover the stroller for day sleeps or a tummy time cover for the couch. So versatile, you can even use it as I have as a top sheet in the cot.
Being 100% organic means the linen is just so incredibly soft and so smooth on little one’s skin. And the gorgeous designs are perfect for boys and girls, with baby farm animals, vegie patch and chicken footprints themes that are so unique and cute.
Aditi has now expanded her range to include muslin wraps and luxurious face clothes and towels too. The organic cotton used in the face clothes is such good quality, I’ve been using them for over a week every day and they are just so thick and soft, my girls love them. Extra large too, which means you can use them from the newborn stage right throughout childhood.
Beautifully packaged in small pillow cases the sheet sets would make the perfect new baby or Baby Shower gift, particularly as the patterns are gender neutral.
To celebrate the launch of Cotton Seeds the lovely Aditi is offering all Stylish Bump readers 15% off the whole organic range from Cotton Seeds, including cot sheets, muslin wraps, cot sheet sets and towelling range with the code BUMP15 at www.cottonseeds.com.au from Monday 5 September until Friday 30 September.
