- Can you tell me more about your GOTS certified organic materials?
All of our blankets and burp cloths are made with GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified organic cotton, and the majority of our garments are made with GOTS-certified organic cotton.
GOTS is the highest level of certification available for organic fabrics. In order to receive certification, products are evaluated throughout the manufacturing process — from their very beginnings as raw materials to their final fabrication as garments or blankets.
It forbids the use of harmful pesticides, toxic heavy metals, and chlorine bleach. It requires that all dyes meet safety requirements on toxicity and biodegradability.
And as part of the GOTS certification process, the factories that produce our products are required to provide safe working conditions and fair living wages for all of their employees.
A Monica + Andy product should feel as good to you as it does to your baby.
- What does lead, phthalate, and flame-retardant free mean?
Organic cotton is grown without synthetic pesticides or fertilizers, which means there’s no chemical residue in the fabric. That’s extremely important to us since our fabric is snuggling your baby’s soft + sensitive new skin.
Additionally, we do not spray our blankets or garments with any fire-retardants, making everything formaldehyde free. Our fabrics have never been processed with — nor do they contain — phthalates. And finally, all of our buttons + snaps are lead free.
We take your baby’s safety very seriously.
- How do I care for my Monica + Andy pieces?
Everything can be machine washed on cold and tumbled dry on low. One of the best things about our blankets and garments is that they get softer with each wash. Please be aware that the texture of muslin changes once it’s machine washed. When we receive the blankets, they’ve been ironed + flattened but once they go through the spin cycle in your home, they’ll get that classic muslin texture.
- What is a layette?
It’s baby’s first wardrobe! Most newborns wear a mix of cozy and soft bodysuits, rompers, infant gowns, hats, and tops and pants. Monica + Andy’s Modern Layette includes 13 of those essentials (our go-to formula for less laundry) along with 3 blankets, 2 bibs, and 2 burp cloths. It’s all the essentials you need to dress, bundle, and cuddle your baby for the first few months.
