An organic diaper cake is perfect if you want to give a homemade, eco-friendly, plastic free and natural baby gift. I have various tips and recommendations for you on how to buy or make a practical green baby gift.
This snail diaper cake is made of organic diapers and an organic baby set (hat, onesie and pants by H&M Conscious). The colors are neutral and suitable for both girls and boys.
Whether you make a green diaper cake yourself or buy one - this eco-friendly gift for newborns literally conveys 100% natural love.
The nappy cakes I present you with are made of disposable, yet eco-friendly and biodegradable diapers (organic cotton diapers, bamboo diapers). These are the perfect alternative if parents want to raise their baby more natural and environmentally friendly but still do not want to miss out on the amenities of disposable diapers.
If you want to make a diaper cake with cloth diapers, have a look here. A cloths diaper cake will be less filigree than a disposable diapers cake but you can still make a cute gift.
Keep in mind that organic diapers and organic accessories are more expensive than the 'usual products', thus an organic and natural diaper cake will cost you a bit more.
Google for 'organic diaper cake' and you'll see that this is a tough one! While you get many results you'll soon discover that the ingredients may be organic such as organic toys or swaddle blankets but the diapers are not.
Ready made organic baby gift baskets are easier to get. Thus, an alternative can be a gift basket and you just add a pack of organic biodegradable diapers or also organic cloth diapers.
Basically, an organic nappy cake or any other diaper gift is made just like any other diaper cake except you use eco-friendly, natural and organic 'ingredients' such as
My 'conventional' diaper babies in a (plastic) box / basket are transformed into an organic diaper cake in a blink! Use biodegradable diapers (or even place cloth diapers instead of organic ones in the burp cloth), 2 pairs of organic baby socks, 4 organic baby wash cloths (for example made of 100% bamboo) and an organic burp cloth. Do not use plastic wiggly eyes but draw them instead. I'm not good at this, so I used googly eyes for just one baby... These little diaper dolls are really easy to make, here's the link to my tutorial.
You can also make the diaper babies with socks only (no wash cloths). If you have one or two pairs of socks left over just place them into the burp cloth together with your organic diapers.
If you prefer an organic gift basket for baby think about replacing the stacked diapers in the cloth with organic onesies and/or organic baby care items. You can also place the items and the babies upright in your cloth. Of course you can also replace the cloth with an eco-friendly basket or an organic diaper caddy.
This is the boy version to the organic diaper babies shown above. I have used some fabric ribbons and mostly raffia ribbon which is 100% natural and no plastic involved. Raffia ribbon is made of strips of the raffia palm tree. Since I cannot draw nice open eyes I have cheated but used just one little pair of googly eyes...
Use organic / biodegradable diapers and organic accessories and follow my instructions for an 'ordinary' diaper cake:
