You’re probably here because you care about giving your child the healthiest start possible. If you’re like us, you’re concerned about the chemicals in the items we use every day. Why are they there in the first place? And especially when it comes to baby gear?

Our team has been through every stage of baby and childhood, and we’ve been putting together an annual gear guide for 12 years now. We also reach out to industry leaders, safety experts, and fellow parents to create these lists of all the things we loved having and wished we’d had for our little ones.

So, whether you’re creating your baby registry or just shopping for a safe baby shower gift, you’ll always find our newest picks for safe, non-toxic baby gear here. We search high and low for the safest, most convenient and non-toxic and eco-friendly baby products to save you the guess work.


These guides to non-toxic and safe baby gear will help you pick the best strollers, car seats, toys, sleep aids, carriers, and more. Keep reading below to learn more about our criteria and chemicals to avoid in baby products. Or choose from the selections below to find the perfect gear for your baby.

Because a baby’s brain, lungs, and nervous system are still developing, toxins are more damaging to their small bodies than they are to adults. Unfortunately, endocrine disrupting chemicals are all around us. From food to detergents and plastic toys, it seems like there’s no escape. However, if you focus on avoiding the dirty dozen endocrine disruptors (as defined by the Environmental Working Group), you can reduce your and your family’s chemical body burden.

When we recommend eco-friendly baby products, we examine third-party testing, carefully read ingredients lists, and ask in-depth questions to make sure they don’t contain these toxic chemicals:

  • formaldehyde
  • flame retardants
  • VOCs
  • PVC
  • harmful phthalates
  • BPA + BPS (bisphenols)
  • lead + other heavy metals
  • synthetic fragrance
  • PFAS (we’re still researching these and adding them to each guide)


Many parents don’t have the space or choose not to create a separate room for baby. In the baby prep stages, we call this nesting without a nursery. If you’re going to travel by car with your baby, a non-toxic car seat would make your must-have list. But if you like to keep baby close, you may use an organic baby carrier more than a stroller.

You’ll be relieved to know that our guides include sections to help you decide whether you really need an eco-friendly baby product or not.


We also include a section in our guides to help you reuse, donate, sell, or recycle all those eco-friendly baby products.

No one wants to end up with a garage full of strollers, car seats, play yards, and bins of clothes – unless you’re having another baby. Some of the tips you’ll find in each guide can also help you buy baby items secondhand.

  1. Hello, are PFAS also considered? I don’t see it on the list, but suppose they should be included? Thanks!

    Good morning, I love your article and wish that information was available when I was looking for sustainable child safety seats when my kids were small. Would it be possible for you to add our mail-back car seat recycling program as an option to consumers who have car seats that were impacted in a car accident or are just too old to donate? $39.99. any can seat, any model, any brand. everywhere in the US. We recycled over 500,000 car seats so far and are getting great reviews from consumers.
    Feel free to send me a note if you have any questions about our program.
    Thank you!
