How Bellabu Bear got started.
As a new mom I was struggling to find the right pajama for my baby. I tried all different kinds of sleepwear, that each assumed to meet a certain need, but there was nothing that did it all.
Either I would find a fabric I liked but it would come with those annoying snaps that make night time changes unbearable or I would find the sweetest design that ultimately ends up getting chopped up when I feel the need to free my daughter’s feet of constraint! No matter what I found, it always seemed like there was one major aspect being compromised.
When my daughter turned around 15 months old, she broke out into a terribly uncomfortable rash that continued spreading to her entire body. Her normally baby soft skin turned red, spotted, and very itchy. I took her to the doctor and she was diagnosed with eczema. This was something new to us both and it took a lot of research and trials to find out how to best control this condition.
I began by cutting out all the tags inside her clothing (100’s), changing all my detergents and bath soaps, and buying only 100% organic products without any seams or embroidery that could cause irritation.
I had to start my search for the perfect pajama from square one, and I was at a major loss.
I then stumbled upon bamboo. Something we already had in her closet but had never appealed to us before. After noticing it was the only clothing item she would wear that would not cause irritation, I dressed her in only that.
My issue was now more focused, I found the fabric I need, but unfortunately every other one I would order would have a terrible chemical smell that absolutely would not go away with washing.
It also didn’t meet my other needs with functionality, design, or quality.
So, my journey began!
How are your pajamas made?
Our yarn comes from organically grown bamboo and our entire outfit, not just the fabric, is Oeko-Tex Certified to be free of chemicals. We have been awarded the Seal of Acceptance from the National Eczema Association. I have made it Our Mission to dress every child in a pajama that is safer and more comfortable for bedtime.
Our super soft bamboo fabric comes only from the most reliable source grown organically without the use of pesticides. The fabric is than certified by Oeko-Tex and Eco-Cert to guarantee that our sleepers are safe for infants as well as for the environment.
Our zippers come from YKK, the leader in the market, and have passed all safety tests for babies. You can be sure they can not be pulled off to become a choking hazard. The zipper is also free from chemicals and harmful substances guaranteed safe with the Oeko-Tex Certification. Our garments are constructed to be pinch free and worry free.
Our printing method is unlike others to make sure we don't compromise the softness of our fabric.
Each design is hand drawn and an original work of art that through much effort becomes the beautiful prints you see displayed on our sleepers.
We believe parents deserve products that make their life easier & babies deserve products that keep them safe & comfortable. This is achieved by creating pajamas that are better for their skin, more comfortable for any activity, and easier for the parents to use. So we created the most comfortable and functional bamboo pajamas, they just happen to be better for the environment as well.
Our signature "All in One-sie" has convertible feet that make the ease of transition from day to night, cold to warm, feet in or out, and even prolong the use of the garment.
The footies come with grip in every single size because we thought it was only fair to provide even our youngest the advantage of having the slip resistant feet.
Sizes Newborn, 0 to 3, and 3 to 6 Months include convertible hand cuffs to keep the babies from scratching themselves and just a little toastier when needed.
Our sleeper has a two way zipper to make those nighttime changes as easy as possible with the added benefit of not having to expose babies chest or belly to the cold.
Our signature zipper design curves to the back of the leg for both beauty and function, it will never be in an uncomfortable spot for the baby or active toddler alike.
The fit of the pajama is meant to be snug fitting to avoid the use of any chemicals, therefore it is not flame resistant. While we have complied within the safety standards we have created our own fit to make sure that it is as comfortable a fit as it can be.
All pajamas are being designed right from home in California and we will always continue to deliver quality straight to you, from our heart to yours.
We are so happy to be presenting the softest and purest pajama for your baby yet!
