The Ultimate Guide to Bamboo Baby Clothes: Everything You Need to Know

At Little & Lively, we understand that parents always want the best for their children. One of the best choices for your baby's clothing is bamboo fabric. Bamboo clothing, like Little & Lively's signature SootheKnit™ fabric,  is known for its softness, breathability, and hypoallergenic properties. In this guide, we will provide you with all the information you need to know about cute bamboo baby clothes.

Why Choose Bamboo Baby Clothes?

Bamboo baby clothes are becoming increasingly popular among parents due to their numerous benefits. In addition to being incredibly soft and comfortable, bamboo fabric is also highly breathable, hypoallergenic, and eco-friendly. This makes it a great choice for parents who want to keep their babies comfortable, safe, and stylish. The breathability of bamboo fabric helps regulate temperature and moisture, which is particularly important for babies who have trouble regulating their body temperature.

Bamboo fabric, like Little & Lively's SootheKnit™ is also hypoallergenic, making it an excellent choice for babies with sensitive skin or allergies. Furthermore, bamboo is a sustainable and eco-friendly crop, making it an excellent choice for parents who want to reduce their environmental impact.


Bamboo fabric is highly breathable, which means it can keep your baby cool in the summer and warm in the winter. This is because bamboo fibers are filled with micro-gaps that help regulate temperature and moisture.


Bamboo fabric is naturally hypoallergenic, which means it is unlikely to cause an allergic reaction. It is also resistant to odor-causing bacteria, which makes it perfect for babies who spit up frequently.


Bamboo is a sustainable and eco-friendly crop. It grows quickly and requires very little water or pesticides to thrive. This makes it a great choice for parents who want to reduce their environmental impact.

Buying Bamboo Baby Clothes

When buying bamboo baby clothes, there are a few things to keep in mind:

Look for High-Quality Fabrics

Not all bamboo fabrics are created equal.  Look for high-quality bamboo fabrics, like ethically sourced SootheKnit™ bamboo-cotton fabric that are made from organic or sustainable bamboo sources. These fabrics will be softer and more durable than lower-quality options.

Check for Certifications

Look for certifications that guarantee the fabric is organic, sustainable, and free from harmful chemicals. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and Oeko-Tex Standard 100 are two widely recognized certifications. Did you know Little & Lively is an OEKO TEX certified business?!

Check the Sizing

While our clothing at Little & Lively is already pre-shrunk, it should be noted that bamboo fabric tends to shrink slightly after washing. If you are worried about shrinkage, we recommend looking for clothes that are slightly bigger than your baby's current size to account for this shrinkage. For example, all of our split children's sizes will fit to the larger of the split size. Ex. a 1-2T will fit closer to a 2T.

Choose Cute Designs

Bamboo baby clothes come in a variety of cute designs, so choose something that you and your baby will love! From animal prints to floral patterns, there is something for everyone. At Little & Lively, all of our creations have a carefree, effortless style, designed with your lovely, diverse family in mind. We make clothes for all the messes, embraces, games, practices, tantrums, coffee dates, shopping trips, daycare days, playground outings and random experiences of everyday life.

Caring for Bamboo Baby Clothes

To keep your bamboo baby clothes looking and feeling their best, follow these care instructions:

Wash in Cold Water

Because bamboo fabric is a natural fiber, it can be a bit more delicate than other materials like polyester. Because of this, we recommend using Kindred's Eco Laundry Detergent Strips and wash in cold water.

Hang to Dry

Bamboo fabric should be hung to dry rather than placed in a dryer. This will help prevent shrinkage and damage to the fabric.

Iron on Low Heat

If you need to iron your bamboo baby clothes, do so on a low heat setting. High heat can damage the fabric and cause it to lose its softness. We DO NOT recommend ironing any item with a graphic on it. 


If you are a parent looking for high-quality, safe, and comfortable clothing for your baby, cute bamboo baby clothes from Little & Lively are an excellent option. These clothes are not only incredibly soft and gentle on your baby's skin but also highly breathable, hypoallergenic, and eco-friendly.

When purchasing bamboo baby clothes, it is important to look for high-quality fabrics, like Little & Lively's SootheKnit™ fabric, that is free from harmful chemicals and meet safety standards. Look for certifications like Oeko-Tex and Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), which ensure that the clothing has been responsibly made and is safe for your baby.

Moreover, bamboo baby clothes come in a variety of cute and stylish designs that are sure to make your little one look adorable. Whether you prefer bold and bright colors or soft pastels, there is something for everyone at Little & Lively.

In summary, bamboo baby clothes offer a plethora of benefits for parents looking to keep their babies safe and comfortable. When shopping for bamboo baby clothes, remember to prioritize quality, safety certifications, and cute designs to ensure that your baby gets the best possible clothing.
