Babysoy is the 1st company in the world to create baby's newborn wardrobe using soybean protein fiber. Babysoy features modern baby layettes made from eco-friendly soybean fiber. Babysoy is conscientious and green by using renewable natural resources as the raw material for our baby wear which is the leftover pulp from tofu, soymilk and other soy products.
It all began in 2004 when first time mom, Amy, wanted to give her daughter a very special gift a new wardrobe that's made from nature while not adding extra burden to our planet. After losing a loved one to a cancer contributed by environmental hazards, Amy knew that raising her soon-to-be-born baby safely in our environment would require more than just wearing sunblock. Apart from making changes within her home and lifestyle, Amy had a bigger dream of gifting her daughter an opportunity to run freely on green grass, nap under blue skies, and one day meet a real polar bear. Amy's dream soon came to realization when life-long friend, David, came to visit the newborn and presented Amy with his discovery of an eco-friendly soy protein fiber. Amy immediately envisioned a layette line made with this environmentally friendly and silky-smooth fabric.
Together, Amy and David launched babysoy on March 1, 2006. Since then, babysoy has grown rapidly with the excitement and support of green-parents, modern boutiques, eco-celebrities and baby & mommy medias. Babysoy offers a complete line of baby layettes to help eco-conscious parents start a healthy lifestyle with their babies while feeling good about a greener planet.
Babysoy is so affordable we were really surprise by the great prices on this range go and take a peak now.
Babysoy is available exclusively through www.muddkids.com.au

Hug those arms and legs
Written by Jaime Purnot
My little girl adores her dresses. So much so, that she demands to wear them above everything else. I know this will be the case come winter and I'm dreading the thought of having to toilet train her while she's wearing tights. That's where Australian company Huggalugs can help. They produce leg and arm huggers (aka leg warmers) that are just perfect for autumn days, for layering during winter and for making toilet training much easier.
The layered look will always be in style and with Huggalugs, you can get use from your child's warm-weather clothes even in winter or simply bulk up those thinner winter garments for added protection. They can also brighten up plain outfits and warm kids up without adding too much bulk in the way that coats do by restricting arm and leg movement.
Huggalugs are available in a massive range of colours and patterns and will fit a wide variety of body shapes, ranging in age from infant to six years. After six years,they can be worn as calf warmers. A fabulous idea! They have a patent-pending design for total comfort so there's no pinching or tightness around the thigh or upper arm.
Pairs can be purchased direct from Huggalugs for $16.50 each. For the organic range, head over to Mudd Kids where they're available for $17.95 each.

Kicky Pants Bamboo Kids Clothing
Kicky Pants organic bamboo clothing for kids - available online at MUDD Kids
Over recent years, the words “organic”, “eco-friendly”, “green” and “sustainable” have become widely used among the general population. This has resulted in increased awareness about the toxins and chemicals in our food, our environment and also in the manufacturing of our clothes. The eco-friendly kids fashion movement has begun to take the world by storm, and one of the forerunners in both sustainability and style is the Kicky Pants range.
Kicky Pants have created a super funky mix and match range of children’s clothing made from eco-friendly and organic bamboo fibre. Bamboo fibre is sourced from sustainable crops that grow wild without the aid of fertilizers or pesticides. Naturally soft, light and silky, it does not require synthetic or chemical processing. Furthermore, Bamboo fabric is naturally antibacterial, antifungal, and antistatic and absorbs water 3-4 times better than cotton keeping skin comfortable, rather than sticky in summer weather.
The Kicky Pants range includes pants, tees, dress and jumpsuits in a range of warm earthy tones and funky retro prints. View the full range online at MUDD kids.

talking my language
March 14th, 2009
Mudd Kids tees I always like to check out companies that sell organic baby products. After all, I think we all want to do the best by our little ones and help the environment. But all too often it comes at a very high price tag, which can put many people off. So I was thrilled when I checked out Mudd Kids‘ website. Their tag is - “organic, fair trade products that don’t cost the earth”. So I checked out a range of their products — from toys to T-shirts and, you know what, they’re telling the truth. Bravo!

I’ve long been a fan of soy milk – for me and the boys – so my natural curiosity for this bean led me to find out more about Babysoy. To my surprise, this wasn’t a brand of soy formula or baby milk, but a line of clothing made from the leftover pulp from tofu, soymilk and other soy products.
All the pieces in this mix and match range of children’s clothing (newborn to toddler) are made using eco-friendly soybean protein fibre – a natural renewable resource that also feels fabulously soft against the skin. According to the website, soybean fibre is smoother than cashmere and has the same moisture absorption as cotton but with a better moisture transmission, making it more comfortable on the skin.
Babysoy founder Amy launched the range a few years ago after the birth of her first child, when a lifelong friend told her about his discovery of the soy protein fibre. "My son suffers from excema and these pieces are lovely on his skin," adds the US-based designer, who has since seen her business grow with the support of green-parents, trendy boutiques, the odd eco-celebrity and groovy and informative websites like this.
These are cozy, comfy clothes for wrapping up in. I particularly like the boys' and girls' playwear (the cargo pants with side pockets are great for curious tots to store bits and bobs), and the essentials range of hats, blankets, socks and bibs would make a great newborn gift at any baby shower.
Bamboo Chic for Little Girls
by Raquel on December 5, 2008
In what is surely summer’s sweetest dress, this eco friendly number will delight little girls who like to twirl their way through the day!
The classically chic dress is made from gorgeously soft bamboo that gathers at the front, draping in gentle folds that fall into a pretty trim at the hem line.
Bamboo is an organic, sustainable crop whose fabric is extremely comfortable, smooth and silky, with natural antibacterial and anti fungal properties.
Bamboo also maintains coolness in warm weather and absorbs water better than cotton, helping to reduce that ‘sticky’ feeling on hot days.
