Good parents will insist what matters most is that their baby is cheerful, healthy and loved. However, when a couple is blessed with a child, they have their prince’s looks to worry about too.
Between feeding, changing, burping and soothing, the last thing you want to stress for is baby clothes that take too much effort but once you know a few simple rules, everything would perfectly smooth out.
Comfort matters the most when pondering over baby’s clothing. Parents typically don’t need a lot of “newborn”-sized clothing, as babies will quickly outgrow it, know how sizing works! When in doubt, buy larger because your little angel would seem to grow overnight, you can always roll up pant legs or tuck in too-long ties between growth spurts. The clothing fabric needs to be breathable, soft, and durable. Soft cotton blends work well for baby’s sensitive skin. All newborn clothing should be washed prior to use in order to remove potentially harmful particles or chemicals in detergents, which may cause allergic reactions. If you notice, your baby has redness on the back of neck area, always cut shirt tags out. Consider how easy a garment is to put on and take off. Snaps would be a better option to win when buttons are frustrating with a wriggly baby. Stretchy neck holes are great for sliding gently over a newborn’s head. It may sound appealing to get your baby a pair of blue jeans complete with button fly; it won’t be cool getting them on unless they have a stretchy elastic waistband for comfort.
The traditional color for baby boys’ clothing is blue. Brown, black and red can be considered too. Certain designs, for example, trains, boats, trucks, etc are also sometimes associated with boys. Sports fans often dress their boys in jerseys. Then there are animal themes that are popular for both boys and girls, but the background color helps distinguish the gender.
So now that you know, happy baby shopping!
