As compared to an adult’s skin, babies’ skin is five times more sensitive than that of an adult hence some more special care of clothing that you dress them and also the products that you use on them. Parents feel confused about where to buy baby clothes, especially first-time parents. When buying infant clothes, priority should be given to the fabric that is used to make them. You should always know that a baby’s skin is susceptible hence you should look for soft smooth and skin friendly fabric. You may check the fabric’s smoothness and softness by using your hand and turning it inside out. The baby could get harsh and scratchy stuff thus they should be avoided. The best fabric for baby clothes is cotton. Buy clothes those are comfortable for your baby and those with no patches, always. Because clothes with collar are not comfortable for baby’s neck; they should be avoided. Check that the clothes you buy for the baby have enough space to go through baby’s head so that you don’t hurt him in any way.
You should always buy baby’s clothes that are appropriate to the different weather conditions. You should look for warm heavy clothing for the cold seasons and lighter ones for the warm seasons. Because babies grow very fast, you should not buy an exact size; always buy one or two sizes ahead of the baby’s actual size. So as to avoid your baby swallowing extra zips and buttons on clothes; you should always avoid clothes with them. Clothes that can be used in winter cannot be used in summer hence it is unnecessary to buy expensive clothes for the baby. You also find that fashionable clothes are not comfortable for babies because of the patches, zips and extra buttons which can irritate baby’s skin and give him red patches. Because tight elastic pants, jeans and shirt sleeves can make a baby extremely uncomfortable and also scratch the part of the body where the elastic rubs, they should be avoided. The shorts and pants should have mild or no elastic to keep the baby comfortable.
A newborn baby’s clothes should be of mild colors. An infant’s clothes should be of a fabric that does not create any problem in baby’s breathing. In case the baby cries constantly, check if the clothes could be troubling him.
