What To Consider When Buying New Baby Girl Clothes?
You might feel somewhat overwhelmed as your baby girl’s due date becomes increasingly closer. Your mind is likely to be taken up with thoughts of what you’re going to need - clothes being one of the essentials. When buying new clothes to fill your little girl's wardrobe there are just a few things you should consider.
Seasonality and warmth
When is your baby due? Will they be here in spring, summer, autumn or winter? There is no point in stocking your draws with newborn long-sleeved knitted co-ords if your due date is in June, save these for the colder months.
Your Desired Style
Consider your style, if you want to dress your child exclusively in Spanish fashion it is important to let friends and family know before you end up with bags of brightly-coloured character clothing that won’t get worn.
It’s also important to consider the material of your baby’s clothes as well as how easy they are to wash. Luckily, here at Millie & Ralph, we work with designers who use the softest of materials, as well as using high-quality super-soft fabrics for the clothes in our own brand. They’re also easy to wash following the simple care instructions on the labels.
The most common and comfortable clothing item for newborns is a sleepsuit. They’re soft against delicate newborn skin, and they’re convenient for all of the nappy changes you’re going to be doing. You also don’t need to worry about them being too big around the waist, and they can be worn alone or layered for colder months.
