8 Organic & Non-Toxic Bassinets For A Safer Baby Snooze

Heather Seely

The first few weeks of parenthood swing between new-baby bliss and ‘I need a coffee IV STAT’.

But snug as a bug with organic cotton baby pajamas you can breathe a sigh of relief laying the newest addition to your family down for a nap in their non-toxic bassinet.

During these early weeks, if your baby is not cuddled on your chest, the next safest and most comforting place is the bassinet. 

But with itty-bitty lungs and a fragile immune system, off-gassing materials, VOCs, chemical flame retardants, and artificial dyes can put your baby at risk of developing serious health problems. 

Not yet ready for a big-baby non-toxic crib, a non-toxic baby bassinet is an easy option for your recovering body and the environment!

About Babyletto

Price Range: $229–$299

Babyletto brings modern design to families of all sizes without compromising on sustainable, eco-friendly materials and practices. 

An entire line of GREENGUARD Gold certified cribs, sheets, and mattress pads join ranks with the Origami Mini Crib and the Lolly and Gelato 4-in-1 Convertible Mini Crib. 

Though not technically marketed as a bassinet, we’d say the Origami mini crib combines compact design with wheels, so if you live in small spaces it easily maneuverable. 

The Gelato Portable Bassinet takes on the more traditional style with a higher base, which for some of us with an iffy back is our preference, while keeping the wheels. This one we think is more suited as a non-toxic bedside bassinet because the eye level is about right depending on the height of your bed.

Babyletto’s Ethical & Sustainability Practices


What does it mean to be a GREENGUARD Gold certified bassinet?

It means that Babyletto’s bassinets are tested and found to be free of over 10,000 toxic emissions and VOCs.

All mini cribs and bassinets are made from sustainably sourced New Zealand pine wood, with the mattress support being TSCA-compliant wood. 

Supply chain & labor practices:

Babyletto’s bassinets are made in Taiwan, with all furniture meeting voluntary ASTM standards and CPSC regulations.

Carbon commitments & green practices:

Many of Babyletto’s mini crib options are convertible, meaning your tiny tot can grow with the same sleepy spot for years to come. 

Babyletto offers replacement parts and alternate feet for their mini crib, so you don’t have to compromise on sustainability, even if your style changes or something wears out.

Community & charitable giving:

As a minority-owned company, Babyletto focuses their efforts on both babies and marginalized communities. Babyletto supports Harlem Children’s Zone, Baby2Baby, Pacific Environment, and more.

Supporting new and expectant mothers, donating diapers and fighting pollution, Babyletto’s community commitments have us sleeping as snug as a bug in a non-toxic nursery room rug.

A US-based company, PBK’s organic baby bassinet looks as cozy as it is for your baby.

What Choose Non-Toxic Bassinets?

No longer protected in the womb, an infant’s skin and respiratory system are extra sensitive to harsh chemical and synthetic products. 

Arguably, the bassinet is one of the most important products to guarantee is non-toxic, organic and made with sustainably sourced materials, as those sweet cheeks rest on the material many times a day and night. 

Traditional bassinets can be made of manufactured plastics, polyurethane foam, and polyester—all synthetic fabrics and materials that can cause flare-ups in certain skin conditions like eczema and rashes. 

Breathing in off-gassing materials and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) can irritate the respiratory system, which is alarming given a baby’s lungs are small and rapidly developing. 

Endocrine disruptors, carcinogens, and formaldehyde are often present in traditional fabrics and materials used to make mass-produced baby gear. 

Phthalates are considered the “everywhere chemical” due to their appearance in items such as furniture, clothing, foods, shampoos, etc., and are linked to many neurodevelopmental disorders in babies and children. 

Project TENDR is a group of concerned scientists, child advocates and health professionals detailing these alarming connections and why certain materials have no place in your home.

Not only will your baby’s health be at risk, but those around the globe, in less than ideal conditions, constructing these products are subjected to harsh and harmful chemicals daily. Certain traditionally used chemicals have been linked to, most notably, SIDS, and other adverse reactions.

As new parents or old hands, we all agree we could use a little more sleep, so rest easy knowing an organic bassinet complete with an organic bassinet mattress pad makes for the all-around safest bassinet for newborns and infants.

How We Found The Best Organic Bassinets

Babies spend a lot of time in slumber, so it’s important what they’re resting on is safe.

We know there’s already a lot to worry about during the early months, so let us do some of the heavy lighting by narrowing down the safest baby bassinet options for your little one.

To do so, we crawled back through our sustainable fashion criteria to determine which non-toxic nursery brands were worth drooling over.


Most furniture is made up of wood, so we look for sustainably harvested woods that are left natural or un-painted to guarantee toxic-free bassinets. If painted, we like sustainable processes with low-VOCs.

Lead-free metal is also an option for the bassinet frame.

Many of the bassinets have cozy, comfortable covers, mattresses, and baskets ideally made of natural fabrics like organic cotton. Because these materials are compostable, you’re one step closer to a zero waste baby.

The organic bassinet pads and mattresses will ideally be filled with organic materials, too, like organic cotton or organic latex. Polyurethane foam is to be avoided if possible because of potential off-gassing.

But more than anything, we look for evidence of third-party lab testing to tell us that a non-toxic co-sleeper isn’t co-sleeping with any toxic, off-gassing materials. 

Supply chain & labor practices:

The materials used to make the products we choose are just as important as the people who make them. We look for companies that use Fair Trade or ethically certified factories. 

If small-batch items, we love to see sustainable materials and companies who work closely with the places they get their materials from.

For brands still tottering on the point of transparency, we reach out directly to try to source more information.r

Carbon commitments & green practices:

Carbon commitments are an important way to help reduce our carbon footprint. We choose companies that conduct many reviews and subject themselves to rigorous testing regarding carbon emissions. 

We love to see companies choosing green practices that begin with the build and end with the shipping (or beyond) with return/reuse policies. Carbon offset programs, renewable energy, and other emission saving practices can help in between.

Community & charitable giving:

The best non-toxic bassinet companies are partnering with charitable programs and initiatives.

Who a company supports speaks volumes about where their commitments sit; Many brands chose to support children (and not just by making non-toxic, natural bassinets).

Final Thoughts On Natural Baby Bassinets

Whether you want an organic co-sleeper or something to carry your bundle into the kitchen, this list of non-toxic baby bassinets helps check an item off the to-do list!

Sleep and eat, eat and sleep. A newborn baby spend most of their time bouncing between those two activities, but without the actual bounce (wear-and-tear). 

Therefore, second-hand, gently used options that are already in circulation made for the most sustainable bassinets.

Especially since they have a somewhat limited lifespan in your baby’s life.

Bassinets are considered unsafe after approximately 6 months (or sooner) if your baby is starting to toss, turn, lift and roll. Once your baby outgrows it, be sure to pass it along to new expecting parents.

Whether you’re expecting or know of someone filling their nursery, share this list with your mom crew or dish out the list of the best non-toxic bassinets at your daddy-diaper party to blanket your inner circle with safe sleep options.
