Whether or not it’s backed up by statistics, it certainly does feel like there’s been a pandemic baby boom. Every week a new crop of sonogram posts or new arrival announcements arrives, each new pic of rosebud lips and downy little heads more angelic than the last. Whether you’ve got a newborn in your own house or a mini new friend or family member to shop for, chances are you’re looking to clothe them in something both adorable and sustainable, made of organic fabrics that feel bunny-soft against baby’s skin. Look no further than Little Planet from trusted kids brand Carter’s, which offers baby essentials made in GOTS certified organic cotton (the gold standard of certified sustainable practices) and packaged in recycled materials.
The collection is filled with soft, aesthetically-pleasing shades like teal and mustard and tawny bronze, and sweet prints like botanical florals, painterly whales and frame-worthy animal illustrations. Take your pick from simple essentials like easy-to-snap onesies, affordable three-packs of bodysuits and genius grow-with-me pants—or build your own virtual gift bundle and have a bounty of cuteness delivered to the new family’s home.

The snap onesie that makes for easy outfit changes
Newborns require a whole lot of costume changes, so you need plenty of easy-on, easy-off one-pieces for playing, lounging, feeding, napping and…well, that’s most of what babies do. The wrap style of this Little Planet sleep & play gives a snug, cuddle-like fit, while the snaps make for stress-free diaper or outfit changes. And the rustic “Golden Orchard” apple print will look gorgeous in the zillions of photos you’ll no doubt be taking.
The bodysuits that’ll make you go “squee!”
There’s nothing like a tiny little body in a tiny little bodysuit, and these organic cotton rib ones come in a convenient and budget-friendly 3-pack for multiple outfit options. The colours and prints are truly delightful—especially this floral print that looks like a vintage botanical drawing.
The pants they’ll wear for ages
Baby clothes are so fun to buy but become too small frustratingly quickly as babies grow at an exponential rate! That’s why Little Planet Organic Cotton Grow-With-Me Pants are so genius—the soft, stretchy fold-over waist and banded ankle cuffs can be folded up and down as baby grows, allowing for many months of wear.
The zipper PJs that can be taken off in seconds
Nighttimes take on a whole new meaning when you have a newborn. Since babes require feeding, soothing and changing around the clock, PJs that come on and off easily are imperative. The key to that is a diagonal zipper across the length of their body, and The Little Planet Organic Cotton 1-Piece PJs are the perfect example—they’ll zip on and off in seconds, even in the middle of the night, even in the dark. Plus, the sweet whale print will look great if they end up wearing pyjamas all day (we’ve all done it).
The everything-they-need gift bundle
Want to celebrate someone special’s new arrival? With Little Planet, you can put together a thoughtful virtual gift bundle of organic cotton essentials to really set them up for newborn success. We’re partial to the Little Panda Bundle, which features everything from onesies to socks, PJs to pants, plus an organic cotton muslin panda lovie for baby to fall in love with.
