What to look for when choosing clothes
When buying baby clothes, there are several things to consider to ensure your baby's comfort, safety and fashion. Here are some key things to look out for:
Size - Babies grow quickly, so it's important to choose clothes that fit well but also have a little room to grow. Avoid buying clothes that are too big or too small, as they may cause discomfort or pose a safety risk to your little one.
Material - Babies have delicate skin, so it's essential to choose clothes made from soft, breathable fabrics that won't irritate their skin. Natural fabrics like cotton are great choices, as they are comfortable and gentle on the skin.
Safety - Look for clothes with no small buttons, ribbons, or other decorations that can be easily pulled off and swallowed. Check for any sharp or rough edges that could scratch or irritate your baby's skin.
Functionality - Choose clothes that are easy to put on and take off, especially when changing nappies. It’s important to consider if they’re starting to walk or crawl, they’ll need comfortable clothes that’ll help them in their development. Consider clothing with buttons or zips for convenience.
Weather - Make sure to dress your baby appropriately for the weather, with enough layers to keep them warm in cooler temperatures or breathable fabrics for hot weather. Especially the weather in the UK, it’s important to be prepared for all weather conditions, all year round.
