15 Wonderful Bamboo Baby Clothes Brands

Once you discover bamboo clothes you won’t go back to anything else. Before I got into the “bamboo clothing world” I thought it was absolutely ridiculous to spend $35+ on a baby footie. I couldn’t believe why so many people would do it.

When a friend finally convinced me to give it a try I was hooked. I saw exactly why these clothes are so popular and totally worth it.

Are Bamboo Clothes Worth the Price?

Bamboo clothes are not something it’s typically sold in stores. You won’t find it at Target.

I’m not going to lie – the first time I saw a price of bamboo clothes I was shocked. Why would so many people want to pay so much for clothes their babies and kids would grow out of so quickly.

I was wrong. Bamboo clothes are not only breathable, babies don’t get sweaty in them, it’s better for baby eczema, but also last longer due to stretch. Bamboo is 3 degrees cooler than cotton, while also being hypoallergenic.

It’s safe to say that all bamboo pajamas are snug-fitting due to regulations. They are not sprayed with toxic flame retardants – which is a good thing (find out why here).

NOTE: “Amazon dupes” (they’re not really dupes, just an off-brand) were huge for a long time because they were cheap. The most popular brand Vaenait Baby had all types and colors of pajamas but they really only have very limited small short bamboo pajamas as they seem to switch to modal fabric. Modal is an excellent fabric, just as soft as bamboo viscose/rayon but much more durable so you might want to give it a try as well.


1. Softness

You really cannot find softer clothes than bamboo. While you do need to take care of the clothes a bit more than you would with cotton (the dryer can ruin them ladies and gentlemen), it’s totally worth it.

If your baby has eczema bamboo is a way to go. Even for older kids, bamboo underwear will make their little butts free of rashes.

My husband who’s totally NOT into clothes and kept wearing the same shirts for years switched almost his entire wardrobe to bamboo after I bought him a set.

Not to mention we have bamboo blankets for everybody now and my toddler often refuses his old blanket once he discovered bamboo.

2. It grows with your child

Bamboo is stretchy is an understatement. Most babies grow out of their clothes every few weeks, right? I remember having giant piles of clothes when my firstborn was a baby and nothing ever fit him right.

When parents were telling me that their one-year-old was still wearing 3-6m in the bamboo I thought they were making stuff up, because how can this be.

With my second child we switched to bamboo almost entirely and I seriously didn’t realize he’s growing at all because he’s been in the same 0-3m clothes for months. Until I tried to put two cotton footies on him and realized that his 3-6m in cotton is pretty tight already. At this rate we would definitely be still wearing the same rompers at 6 months (edit: at 7 months he can still wear his 3-6m footies and bodysuits from some brands).

Needless to say, you actually end up spending less on baby clothes even though the cost per item is more expensive.

3. Resell value insanity

On top of that, no one will buy your old washed-off clothes from Carter’s your kid grew out of after a few weeks. In fact, I can’t even get rid of them for free for weeks.

But, bamboo clothes can look just as good as new and due to its limited edition prints you can pretty much resell them easily.

Even our cat loves bamboo. He’s been trying to evict the baby out of changing table cover.

Common Problems with Most Bamboo Clothing Brands

Let’s be real for a second. Have you ever joined any mom groups on Facebook? If you didn’t, you might be surprised by what you discover. If yes, you know that bamboo groups are absolutely insane at times.

The drama that goes on in those groups is just beyond my comprehension. Some moms would jump at each other throats and call others ugly names if they can’t score the desired romper in the print they want, or if someone gets to claim something in BST (buy sell trade) groups faster than them.

I thought it was bad in Montessori groups, but bamboo groups are just another level of craziness and gossiping.

Inventory & Resell Value Causes Frustration

It’s not easy to buy nice bamboo clothes these days. In fact, months before I bought my first Posh Peanut item I was looking at the website and felt there weren’t many items I wanted, simply because I had no clue what was on the website past Thursday it’s simply leftovers.

Most companies, small or large, drop new limited-edition prints every week and sell out instantly. You really need to be “on it” and keep refreshing the website at the given time to score what you want (most companies have exclusive Facebook groups to inform everyone about new prints and some even give early access).

Blankets sell out in less than 19 seconds – I’m not even kidding. Back when you had to score a Nugget really quickly seems like a relaxed shopping experience in comparison, LOL.

Customer Service

If you search for bamboo companies’ reviews you’ll probably find that most have terrible reviews. Objectively speaking, I think it’s a bit harsh in most cases and it usually is either a customer misunderstanding the care of bamboo fabric.

People would blast a terrible review that an item was defective and the company dared to ask them to send an item back (not even Amazon will refund you without sending an item back) or that they wouldn’t accept a return months later.

I started my own small bamboo clothing company and while I naturally recommend my company and can vouch for its quality, I tested every single company on the market to get a feel for what I’m doing and how things can improve.

My kids wear it all what you could probably notice on my social channels. My company doesn’t have every print obviously and I love buying other people’s prints if I like it – I’m also a customer (which apparently, for some companies is an immediate ban #PettinessCentral). Some materials are slightly thicker, some fade easier, but overall – it’s more about the print and style.

Few things I discovered:

  • bamboo clothes in the US are made in China and India
  • most bamboo clothing companies (particularly the big ones) are using Shutterstock patterns and not designing anything themselves
  • unfortunately, most companies cater only to girls with an occasional very few print for boys. Bows, ruffles and bubble rompers simply sell way better than gender-neutral items

Below are my honest objective reviews of the most popular and best bamboo clothing companies, along with some smaller and lesser-known. I’m constantly adding new ones once I test them personally.

I decided to skip companies that only make copies of bigger companies’ prints without releasing their own, because I honestly believe there are so many opportunities for everyone out there that there’s no need to just release the same prints everywhere.


Most Popular Bamboo Baby Clothes Brands

(*in random order)


1. Kyte Baby (bamboo)

Best For | Bamboo rompers & sleep bags
Products | Baby + Toddler + Adults
Sizing | Runs big
Ships To | International
Price Range | $$

Kyte is many parents’ favorite brand because of its simple, yet stylish prints and availability of simple solid rompers.

On the mid-range side for pricing, but they sell quality items with great resell value. Shipping is often slower depending on the volume of their orders I guess (but they’re also on Amazon).

Their clothes contain 97% of viscose from bamboo, vs 95% for other companies.

Get $10 off your first purchase.


My honest Kyte Baby review:

Kyte wasn’t the first company on the market, but many think it was (Kickee was actually). Their prints are slightly boring most of the time as it’s just solids and small things on white background which is quite transparent if a child is wearing a diaper that’s not blank white.

I won’t lie to you, some of their things are peeling way faster and more intensively than any other company. When asked, the company said it’s due to the fact they have 97% bamboo and not 95%, but not sure if that’s an actual reason.

I started using a clothing shaver for that (my mom and I used to have clothing shaving days when I was little) and it can basically make my peeling footies look like new again.

I’m happy with their crib sheets and jumpsuits, not so much with footies. It’s much softer than other brands but looks too transparent to me.

Their sizing is completely off and runs huge on baby items, tiny on small toddler pajamas and huge on larger kids sizes. To the extend I have so much space in 10Y pajamas (and I’m 5’7) that it could easily fit me when I was pregnant.

Their sleep bags are thicker than Posh in higher TOGs which for many is a good thing, but they feel too heavy for my kids. On the other hand, the 0.5 TOG feels way too flimsy so it really depends on what you like. Some people prefer it.

Verdict: Go for it.


2. Little Bum Bums (bamboo)

Best For | Footies, rompers, blankets
Products | Baby + Toddler + Mama
Sizing | Runs a bit small
Ships To | US/Canada
Price Range | $$

Little Bum Bums is a retailer that grew very quickly. They sell mostly bamboo, so it’s ultra-soft like butter and super gentle on baby’s skin. Mostly, as they recently expanded to some non-bamboo items as well.

They do have sales and offer various promos and you can get 15% off with a code LBBANNA15, so don’t fear the prices.

I’d also like to mention they have excellent customer service.

My honest Little Bum Bums review:

I ordered from them way before they were even popular and most things were half off. Ironically, now these old discounted prints are highly desirable on BST as the company took off. I got hooked. Some prints are a total hit for me (like the day of the dead or halloween ones), but I must admit that lots of prints are definitely not my style.

Customer service is great, they’re always incredibly quick to reply. Their blankets are bigger than standard PP blankets which is nice, but not long enough to work as an adult blanket. It doesn’t stop my toddler from loving them though!

Our blankets are still going strong, even though they get a lot of usage around the house. One thing I do love the most from LBB are their women’s pants – they’re super comfy in the waist and unlike some others can fit comfortably every body shape.

They recently introduced a rewards program, which was exciting because you can earn credits on your purchases and get freebies as well. I’m yet to try their new loungewear – will update you on that soon.

Verdict: If you like the print, go for it!

3. Posh Peanut (bamboo)

Best For | Footies, twirls, mom lounge, blankets
Products | Baby + Toddler + Family Matching
Sizing | Depends on the item, but mostly TTS
Ships To | US, Canada, Australia
Price Range | $$

Posh Peanut is the most desired and popular bamboo clothing company for new customers, whether you like it or not. People either love it or hate it, there’s no “in-between”.

They release new prints constantly in different places (Nordstrom, small retailers, Saks) so people have lots of choices. Well, if you’re a girl mom at least.

Shipping speed depends on the drop – could be a day or a week, but it takes almost a week with DHL (at least to Utah from their California headquarters), but if you want to do something super quick they’re also on Amazon.

Get 10% off (no minimum) with the code ANNAK10.


My honest Posh Peanut review:

Posh definitely caters to an American audience so some prints haven’t been my cup of tea, but many I adore (like the chicken or cookies).

I wish their mom lounge didn’t run so huge, as S Lux really could fit two people my size, but there’s always size 10Y that I can fit into. My husband thinks it’s hilarious that I fit into kids’ sizes.

My personal pet peeve, however, is that their new collections have their “PP” logos all over the print. While it disappears on some prints, it’s really in your face on various prints. I don’t buy clothes that scream “Nike” or “Hurley” so I wish they stop doing this for the sake of making their print “original” since it’s often a Shutterstock pattern anyway. In fact, I recently accidentally purchased a cheap shirt from Zulily with the same print – just missing the PP.

However, lots of prints are dropping at different retailers like Nordstrom or Saks without any notice and many moms are stalking those websites 24/7. Not sure how anyone has time for it.

I really like their crib sheets and sleep bags (I’ll do a comparison for sleep bags in another post soon).

The problem is when you get a defective item. Defects can happen, but my main issue was that they oversell many things so if you get a defective item you cannot replace it with the same item and it can be frustrating. I make sure I inspect every item instantly – just in case.

While I didn’t want to get sucked onto Facebook drama Posh Peanut is a company that loves creating drama on every occasion. They have their VIP group where they post sneaks of new prints which I was a part of. One day they contacted me on my Instagram to help them promote a new print, then a few hours later (not even kidding!) they blocked me from their group and ghosted me without explanation.

Verdict: If you like the print, go for it. Make sure you inspect the item for defects as soon as you receive it.




4. Muse Threads

Best For | Footies, rompers, blankets
Sizing | True to size and not too tight
Ships To | International
Price Range | $$

Muse Threads is one of my favorites recently due to its bold and colorful, yet not cheesy or too busy designs.

Their prints feature artists from around the world so travelers would definitely appreciate it.

They have a small inventory, but I love their products (and they’re expanding) and the quality is THE best in the bamboo world objectively speaking.

Get 15% off by using this link.

My honest Muse Threads review:

I stumbled upon this company by accident as someone shared their penguin print somewhere. As we’re hardcore penguin lovers here, I loved it.

The company is run by two diplomats as a side hobby. No groups drama, just bold colorful designs. I appreciate it so much. It also peels very little and holds up extremely well for bamboo.

Their blankets are super thin even though they’re two-layered, so I’d say only use them for the summer or as a decoration.

Verdict: Definitely recommended.


5. Free Birdees

Best For | Footies, rompers, blankets
Products | Pajamas, blankets, sheets, underwear
Sizing | Small
Ships To | International
Price Range | $$

Free Birdees is a relatively small shop with cute designs, mostly watercolor-type prints.

They release new prints every month with lots of gender-neutral prints.

Their customer service is beyond amazing. I can assure you that you’ll be blown away – I was!

Get $10 off your first purchase.

My honest Free Birdees review:

Free Birdies is great, the owner is super sweet in the way she talks to her customers and how much she cares. I’ve never experienced such personal touch and care from an online boutique before. I was blown away by their customer service.

The clothes tend to run on the smaller side. Footies hold up for a long time with minor peeling, so I’ll definitely be buying more but sizing up (Holden was 5 months old when he was wearing 6-12m and it was a tight fit on him). The material is thicker which is great in terms of potential holes and durability, but it does have less stretch and thinner bamboo.

That said, size up. Prints are unique and many have a twist like different romper’s sleeves in the narwhal print.

It’s also the only brand in which my husband agreed to match with me and the kids. He kept sayign he doesn’t want or need more pajamas, but when I made him open the package and try his on he admitted that “this one is pretty cool” and a month later he said he could use another set ๐Ÿ˜‰

Verdict: Definitely recommended.


6. Kate Quinn Organics (bamboo + cotton)

Best For | Organic rompers & overalls
Products | Baby + Toddler
Sizing | Runs a bit big
Ships To | US
Price Range | $

Kate Quinn Organics offers boho designs with the best quality on the market if you ask me – it makes things in India and not China. Their products are the cheapest on the market.

They use 100% organic cotton, modal, and bamboo and every single product I got was good quality and totally worth the price that’s way lower than anywhere else.

Their loyalty program is kick-ass and can save you a lot of money on cashback. Plus, if you spend $250 you get invited to their outlet where you can buy surprise bags (right picture below) for very little money with random things.

My honest Kate Quinn review:

I love Kate Quinn because they have a variety of clothing styles, not just pajamas and loungewear. Their designs are boho and toned down with lots of solids. A bit like an old-school European style and my personal favorite. My husband calls our son a “vintage baby” when he wears it ๐Ÿ˜‰

Shopping is frustrating these days, especially for older kids. You need to be in their Facebook VIP group to get early access before each drop (before the general public) and even still this is the only company I’ve never managed to get a blanket from. In fact, the latest drop I didn’t even manage to score a stupid bib.

The quality is great, very long-lasting. Sizing really depends on the material since they’re releasing a ton of different materials depending on the drop.

7. Kickee Pants

Best For | regular wear
Products | Babies, Toddlers, Children, Adults
Sizing | True to size
Ships To | International
Price Range | $$

Kickee was the first bamboo clothing company in the US. In fact, another big company started as their retailer.

They have the most variety of clothes, not just pajamas and loungewear. You can buy hoodies, women’s dresses, anything you want from them. They even cater to pets.

My honest Kickee review:

I’m mostly happy with what I got from them, apart from pillowcases as they feel a bit like silk and not bamboo.

One thing is their customer service. It’s definitely lacking and you need to pay for your own returns (they won’t even send you a label), so if something doesn’t fit it sucks – unless you order from their Amazon store.

Verdict: Yes, but order from their Amazon store or one of their retailers instead of directly.


8. Angel Dear

Best For | Footies, rompers, blankets
Sizing | True to size
Ships To | International
Price Range | $$

Angel Dear has super soft pajamas and nursery items in bamboo and muslin.

They’ve also been seen on Zulily where you can get them very cheap, so remember to sign up for updates there as well.

My honest Angel Dear review:

The quality of Angel Dear is good, close to no pilling. Wish their prints were less cartoonish as many things disappear in the background, but that’s just my personal opinion.

Their sizing is definitely off, depending on the item. I recently purchased a few different things and bodysuits run true to size, while footies are at least a size or two bigger than they should be and have no anti-skid which is a bummer.

Their shipping is extremely slow though. 10 business days is a lot to process a package.

Verdict: I’d buy it again for sure because of the quality, even though I’m concerned about sizing.


9. Birdie Bean

Best For | Nursery, pajamas, blankets
Products | Apparel, outerwear & accessories (for babies, toddlers)
Sizing | Small
Ships To | International
Price Range | $$

Birdie Bean is a newer company with an assortment of bright and colorful prints for babies and toddlers.

They’re also available through smaller retailers which is very convenient.

My honest review:

I love their prints. They’re bright and unique, yet not too busy or awkward and never had any issues with quality. They used to cater to mostly girls, but recently expanded to boy and gender-neutral styles. The junk food and rodeo prints were our favorites.

It has become harder to shop and I wish they’d up the inventory so I wouldn’t need to hunt for their items from boutique to the boutique as it’s all sold out within the first hour of the drop and restocks never happen. That part is frustrating.

Verdict: Go for it!

10. Little Sleepies

Best For | Footies, pajamas, blankets
Products | Pajamas for babies and kids
Sizing | Runs very large
Ships To | International
Price Range | $$

Little Sleepies is currently one of the most popular companies. They sell online at at many boutiques.

Due to extremely high demand it’s hard to shop their drops and get everything you want, but if you’re not picky you’ll be fine.

Their sizing runs large, especially in rompers so keep it in mind.

My honest Little Sleepies review:

I tried Little Sleepies for the first time a while ago and I thought the quality was fine. Two seasons later my toddler is still sleeping in his pajamas (and we use them around the house as well), so it’s definitely holding up well. I’m aware they had issues with their Disney launch with loose threads, but I managed to score a Toy Story pajamas and had no problems with it.

I personally don’t love all their designs, but it’s a personal preference. I’m glad everything is created by actual artists and not pure Shutterstock so I won’t see the same designs at Walmart later ๐Ÿ˜‰

Their things sell insanely quickly, so you really need to be on their website during the launch, which is surely frustrating because I don’t want to be online 24/7 but in that case, I just buy whatever is left.

Verdict: Shopping can be frustrating, but try it out.

11. Dream Jamms

Best For | Footies, pajamas, dresses
Products | Pajamas for babies and toddlers
Sizing | True to size
Ships To | International
Price Range | $$

Dream Jamms is a relatively new company that already proved the customer of its quality.

They make designs for both boys and girls and while it’s still only the standard “pajamas and rompers” their bold and original designs are rememberable.

Get $10 off your first order.

My honest Dream Jamms review:

I only heard of Dream Jamms recently, but was happy to see how much their value customers’ feedback about upcoming designs. The material feels thicker than most brands (you cannot really see it with a naked eye, but if you look into technical features of the material then you’ll know), so it’s a huge plus.

Verdict: Recommended.

12. Pipsquicks

Best For | Footies, pajamas, mommy+me
Products | Pajamas for babies and kids
Sizing | True to size
Ships To | US/CA
Price Range | $$

Pipsquicks is another small shop that’s growing and constantly coming up with new cute designs.

They don’t release new prints super often, but there’s always a themed collection and something for both genders.

Get free shipping your first order.

My honest Pipsquicks review:

I knew the material and quality for a while as they’re producing at the same factory my own brand does. I recently ordered a few things to check the sizing and I’m very happy with the purchase. Designs are cute, so I’m sure this company will be around for a while and come up with new things.

Verdict: I like it.

13. The Little Blue Lion Clothing

Best For | Blankets, pajamas
Products | Pajamas for babies and kids
Sizing | True to size
Ships To | International
Price Range | $$

The Little Blue Lion Clothing Boutique is a new mama-owned small company that already got customers hooked.

They don’t release new prints as often as other companies, but most are gender-neutral.

Get $5 off your first order.

My honest The Little Blue Lion review:

There’s rarely a shop that I stumble upon and like most designs, but Little Blue Lion Clothing is an exception. I love their edgy designs as they’re very unique (not just like another butterflies and flowers company).

I got hooked easily and the quality is just as good as any other bigger brand.

Verdict: Recommended.

14. Bellabu Bear

Best For | Footies, underwear
Products | Pajamas for babies and kids
Sizing | True to size
Ships To | International
Price Range | $$

Bellabu Bear offers simple bright designs and a large assortment for all genders and ages.

They don’t release new prints as often as other companies, but most are gender-neutral.

Get $10 off your first order.

My honest Bellabu Bear review:

I must admit I wasn’t blown away by their designs, but someone recommended their underwear to me and it’s been a hit. Highly recommend BellabuBear underwear.

Verdict: Recommended.

Recommended Boutiques for Bamboo Clothing

On top of buying from a brand directly, you can also visit a local retailer (baby clothing store) who might carry bamboo or order from well-known small boutiques online. I can personally vouch for those boutiques as I ordered from them on various occasions and never experienced an issue


Disclaimer: Please don’t email me or message on my Instagram asking for contacts for factories, because you want to start your own bamboo company. I get endless messages about it from people wanting to start their own line and I decided not to give those contacts out of respect to business owners who put their heart and soul into their brands. There’s way more to starting your own clothing label than exchanging a few emails with a factory and it takes an enormous amount of effort to even find these contacts, test samples, research, design sizing chart, endless nights of fighting shipping companies, and much much more.
