History of Bamboo

Bamboo is a tree like grass that has been around for millions of years. It matures quickly and is easily grown in most climates. Many people think bamboo is exclusive to China, but it is abundant in Asia, North and South America, Australia, and Africa.

Bamboo is a common material used for building supplies, flooring, and furniture. It is also a food source for animals like pandas, elephants, lemurs and gorillas. Have you ever eaten bamboo shoots or bamboo rice, used often in Asian cooking?

Bamboo Fabric

Bamboo fabrics are becoming more and more popular with the increased demand for sustainable products. Bamboo products and fabrics are an ethical choice for those concerned with global warming. 

Do you know how bamboo fabrics are made? Bamboo trunks are soaked until they separate into fibrous threads. The threads are woven into fabrics and the fabrics then made into clothing, bedding, and accessories.

Bamboo fabric is well known for its softness and comfort. The feel is similar to fine silk and cashmere.

Bamboo vs Cotton

Everything that we need for our survival and well-being depends, either directly or indirectly, on our natural environment. Choosing sustainable materials is important for global preservation.

Bamboo grows without the need for pesticides or fertilizer. Bamboo does not require large amounts of water.

Cotton requires more care to grow. It does not grow as quickly as cotton or as easily in many climates.

Bamboo Baby Clothes

Bamboo is the fabric of choice for cute baby boy clothes, cute baby girl clothes, bamboo baby pajamas, toddlers pajamas, and kids pajamas. Here is a list of reasons why.

  • Soft fabric
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Resistant to harmful UV rays
  • Environmentally friendly

Soft fabrics against a baby’s skin will keep your baby happier and more comfortable. How do you feel when you are wearing soft materials?

A baby’s skin is very sensitive. Bamboo is less likely to cause irritation or an allergic reaction when compared to other fabrics. 

The FDA does not recommend applying sunscreen to babies less than 6 months old.  Keeping you baby protected in protective clothing is a great option when avoiding the sun isn’t possible.

Bamboo is environmentally friendly. Bamboo absorbs greenhouse gases and produces more oxygen when compared to other trees.

Caring for Bamboo Clothing

Bamboo clothing is easy to care for. They are machine washable and can be air dried or machine dryable. Bamboo is resistant to shrinkage.

Babies are messy. Here are a few laundering tips.

  1. Avoid chlorine bleach
  2. Use your regular laundry detergent
  3. Wash lighter and darker clothing separately
  4. Use cool to warm water temperatures
  5. Air dry or machine dry on a cooler setting

Fabric softener and dryer sheets are not recommended. Bamboo is naturally a moisture wicking fabric and softeners may reduce absorbency.

Cute Baby Clothes

Babies need an endless supply of clothes. Not only do babies require changing often, they are always growing. 

The great news is, almost everything your baby needs is available in bamboo. 

  • Tops
  • Bottoms
  • Sets
  • Sleepwear 
  • Bedding
  • Blankets and sheets
  • Hats and accessories

Sweet Bamboo clothing is designed in house by a mother of three and all products are made with her love.

How Much to Buy 

Newborn clothing comes in a wide variety of sizes for a reason. Babies grow and they grow quickly.

Most babies double their weight around 5 months and triple their birth weight by their first birthday.

Babies need a lot, but how much is too much? Here is a sample list of what a newborn baby needs and how much to buy.

  • Onesies or bodysuits
  • Footy or gown pajamas
  • Hat and socks 
  • Blankets and swaddles
  • Seasonal clothing and accessories
  • Holiday and special occasion outfits

Before developing your own shopping list, take a moment or two to think about the following to determine the right quantity of each recommended item.

  • Budget - don’t overspend
  • Laundry - how much time do you have to devote to washing
  • Growth - don’t buy too much in one size 

Are you unsure about what size to buy? This convenient size chart outlines clothing and blanket sizes for infants, toddlers, and children. 

The size chart is broken down by age, height, and pounds. The blanket size chart provides blanket and swaddle lengths and widths. 

As per government regulations, pajamas are sized to fit more snug than other clothing.

If you are worried about buying too much, don’t be. Sweet Bamboo offers a generous return, exchange, and refund policy.
