Shopping Tips for the New Arrival Clothing

(0 reviews)

Clothing for your newborn has to be selected carefully. Remember your baby will have very soft and delicate skin so be choosy about what you buy.

Friday, December 2nd, 2016

Though you will get a whole bunch of stuff from friends and family after your baby is born, it can help to buy some basic stuff and pack it in your hospital bag for just the initial days.


New-born clothing essentials: Mittens, socks, caps, cotton shirts, diapers, wrapping cloth. And remember that babies grow too quickly so don’t buy too many at one time.

For initial days, buy clothes meant for newborns.
It is always better to keep price tags attached so that you can return items if you need to.

Look for fabrics that are soft and comfortable but at the same time made of natural fibers such as cotton and linen
Babies can be messy and you might need to change their clothing several times a day. Make sure that the clothes are easy to put on and take off. Choose tops that open in front or snap on sides and pants that are without elastic waists.
Muslin cloths are a pretty important buy. Muslins cloth can be used for all purposes as for example you may need one after a post feeding burping session to protect your clothing. It can be also be put under your baby’s chin during feeds, etc.
Do invest in mittens, socks and caps for the initial days.

Safety Tips to Keep in Mind While Buying Clothing for the Little One

Check buttons, hooks closely before buying. So that it does not come off easily.
Buy baby sleeping bags also called as wearable blanket instead of ordinary normal blankets.
Avoid buying loosely knitted sweaters as your baby’s fingers/toes could get caught in the gaps.

Do remember, to get lots of diapers both cotton and disposable ones along with other accessories.
