You are all excited about shopping for your newborn. But be careful while buying clothes. Your baby’s skin is very tender and fragile. So a wrong choice can make your little one really uncomfortable.

Thursday, March 9th, 2017

Consider the following things while buying clothes for your baby:

Opt for clothes that have simple designs and are comfortable rather than those that are trendy or expensive.

  • Fabric - Cotton is the most recommended fabric. It is lightweight, natural, durable and absorbent. Fleece is an alternative to wool. It is great for outer layering and dries up really quickly.
  • Style - Kimono style bodysuits or front open vests will not irritate your newborn. T-shirts with straps at the neck or shoulder open bodysuits can slip down with ease. Make sure the body suits you buy allow easy diaper changes.

  • Wardrobe - Caps, booties, t-shirts, pyjamas or leggings, sweaters, jackets and wearable blankets are must have items for your baby’s wardrobe.
  • Sizes - While buying clothes for your little one, don’’t forget to buy a few clothes of bigger sizes (0-3 months and 3-6 months) as babies grow really fast.
  • Layering - While dressing your baby, layer her up according to the weather condition. Keeping the newborn completely wrapped up will restrict movements
    and make your baby feel too warm to get up even for feeds.
  • Precautions - Avoid buying clothes that are tight around the neck. Check for itchy laces, sequins, metal zippers, ribbons, buttons, sharp-edged tags or 
    elastics, and drawstring necklines.

Laundry Lessons for your Baby’ Clothing

  • Wash the new clothes before using them.
  • Preferably, wash the baby’s clothes separately. Do not mix them with the other laundry.
  • Use a mild detergent that is hypoallergenic and fragrance free, if the baby develops skin irritation with normal detergents.
  • Dry the clothes properly as dampness can cause fungal infections.
