Natural Nursery: Make Your Baby's Room Greener

If you're interested in making sure that you have a green home, your baby's nursery is one of the main areas you should focus on. Creating an eco-friendly nursery is good for the environment, and it also helps to keep the room healthy for your baby. 
You can use a few different tricks if you're thinking of ways to create a natural nursery. The way you decorate it, the things you choose to put in it and how you clean it can all make a difference to how green your nursery is. Take a look at these methods for making it more natural.

Use Paint with No VOCs

VOCs (volatile organic compounds) can be found in most house paints, as well as a variety of other materials. These chemicals can affect the air quality, and they're not particularly healthy, especially for a nursery. Fortunately, you can get paint that doesn't contain VOCs or only has a very low level of them. It's important to be careful when you paint a nursery, anyway. You should always make sure that the room is well ventilated and has plenty of time to air out before your baby starts sleeping in there.


Choose Toys Made with Natural Materials

As well as practical items, you probably want to fill the nursery with toys. It's hard sometimes to keep the volume of toys under control, but sticking to natural and eco-friendly ones can help. 
If you want toys that are healthy and greener than those made from plastic, there are plenty of baby toys made from wood and other organic materials, such as cotton. Of course, you also need to make sure that any toys you choose are safe too. That means checking for any small pieces that could come off or anything that could cause injury.

Pick Organic Bedding

The bedding in your baby's bed is another thing to consider too. You have to put some thought into how safe it is in other ways, so it's a good idea to think about how natural it is at the same time. Choosing organic bedding will ensure you have eco-friendly, soft and natural materials. You can often make sure that it's fair trade too, especially if you choose to buy organic cotton. There are still plenty of cute options for colours, patterns and styles if you choose organic bedding for your baby's nursery, and it's not hard to find.

Use Green Cleaners

You also need to think about how to keep your nursery clean. It's understandable if you want to choose gentle and natural cleaners for this room in particular. But you also want to keep everything clean to help your baby stay healthy. Fortunately, there are more natural cleaning products that will help you clean your baby's room and are also non-toxic and good for the environment. It's also good to keep in mind that you don't want to clean obsessively - babies need to be exposed to some germs to help their immune system.

Make your nursery more natural by carefully choosing the things you choose to go in it, as well as how you clean it.

Panda & Ping


Comfort For Little Ones Peace Of Mind For Parents




As any parent who is lacking it knows; sleep matters. And when it comes to sleep comfort is important, after all with the recommended amount of sleep for children up to six years of age being twelve hours a night, our children spend a long time in their beds. We should therefore take as much, if not more, care about what they wear when they sleep as we do about what they wear during the day. 

Panda and Ping is a unique British children's brand. 
Created in 2015 by Pippa Millington, a mum who knows what it's like to try and find beautiful sleepwear and bedding for her children; their exquisite collection not only looks fabulous, but feels fantastic too.


Made using 100 percent OEKO Tex cotton jersey every product in their range ensures a soft, snuggly bedtime; phalite free comfort for little ones and peace of mind for parents. With all products being ecologically sourced from British manufacturers, customers can be sure of high quality ethically sourced and produced goods. 

Matching Sleepwear From 3 Months To Nine Years

When a baby comes along it's easy for older children to feel left out of the process. Panda and Ping's matching sleepwear provides the perfect solution. With fun vibrant prints in both baby rompers (sizes ranging from 3-24 months) and pyjamas (sizes ranging from 2-9 years) they are one of very few UK companies that make clothes to enable big brothers and sisters to twin with their new sibling.
What makes the range even more special though is that Pippa has really thought about how the needs of babies differ from those of older children, and ensured that they are met. Panda and Ping's rompers have nickel free poppers, an envelope neck, perfect for middle of the night changes, and are footless, making them much more suitable for crawling babies than traditional sleepsuits.


Beautiful Bed Linen

From beautiful single duvet covers with matching pillow cases, to fitted sheets for both beds and cot beds, Panda and Ping's bedding range will have children leaping into bed. Adorned with fun, colourful prints they can't fail to make bedtime fun for both children and their parents alike.
