St. Patrick's Day in Chicago

Today, the Saturday before St. Patrick's day is when all of Chicago watches the river turn green (luckily non toxic and safe for the environment, 40 pounds of vegetable dye to be exact), and parade the streets in their best green outfits. Here at Grow we decided to join in the festivities, in the most baby-friendly, organic and eco-friendly way possible! A List of our favorite GREEN products. For both their color and/or their mission. Enjoy!

Dwell studio all organic sheet: We love it for it's color, softness and worry free since it is made of all organic cotton. Made with azo free and formaldehyde free dyes. They also package their products in these cute little bags eliminating all PVC.

Under the Nile Green Bean teether: We love this teether since it is all organic cotton plus machine washable! Under the Nile also provides fair trade work to villagers in Egypt.
Bloom Alma Crib: This is the first bassinet that suits a child up to two years. Made of all solid non-toxic wood with no VOC paint. The alma crib has a two mattress level system so once you are done using it as a bassinet you are able to use it as a portable crib. The first portable crib made of all solid wood. Also, sold with the alma is an all organic mattress.

Orbit Baby's all organic footmuff: This first all organic footmuff on the market. Perfect for keeping your baby nice & cozy in the Winter or Fall months. Made of organic cotton, perfect for keeping baby warm, but also allowing proper air flow.
Kate Quinn organic onesie: All organic made in India, and one of our best sellers! So great for newborn and up, the easy side snap buttons make dressing baby that much easier!

Grey and Yellow

With Winter looming, we decided to add a pop of color to the display. We just re-decorated our store front to represent our two new favorite colors, Grey and Yellow.. The result? A beautiful mix. We aren't talking about the old school pale yellow, we are loving the bright, fresh and modern yellow, especially paired with a cool, sophisticated grey. Two great colors that you will never get sick of, or if you do, both are neutral and go great with another punch of color like hot pink for a girl, navy blue for a boy and even orange just to spice it up!

We pulled together the items we used in the window to make this little design board. It's really great to mix and match different pieces of furniture rather then sticking with all one designer.

Finally! The First all Organic Play Mat is at Grow!

Nook Sleep Systems has put all our minds at ease with their new Lilypad. This is the first all organic tummy time, or anytime play pad. Not only is this a perfect place to lay your newborn on the floor, it's perfect for playdates and outdoor use too. Their soft pebbles help create airflow helping your new little baby stay nice and cozy without over heating. The designers really thought of everything; machine washable, easily-foldable with a strap, water/liquid resistant AND anti-bacterial. Made of all natural components so no off-gassing to harm our environment, made in the USA, and 40'' diameter and circular (hence the clever Lilypad name).

The Lilypad is truly the best option to use when laying or sitting your little one on the floor to play. They have come up with three bright and fun colors, all available at Grow.

Lawn $120

Blossom $120

Poppy $120
