As beautiful as you can see certain clothes in a shop window, we have to think mainly in its practicality, comfort and convenience when dressing the baby.
My experience has taught me that there are clothes we wear very rarely because it is not practical to change it or because the baby is uncomfortable with it.
That is why, in addition to liking ourselves, it is important to follow certain tips before buying baby clothes . For example:
Avoid zippered waists and buttons on newborn clothing. Prefer elastic waists that fit better and we are sure not to squeeze them.
The fabrics are soft and easy to iron, preferably 100% cotton, especially if the baby is very small. Avoid hard tissues and wool that will lose lint.
Incorporate automatic fasteners (not plastic as they melt when ironing). It is advisable that the T-shirts have clasps in the neck and that the trousers have them in the crotch; it is much easier to change the diaper.
Prefer adjustable waists. When they are somewhat older, pants with adjustable waist are ideal, those that wear an elastic with buttons at the waist.
Think of younger siblings. When we have two children or more of the same sex (or not), we buy thinking about all possible users of that garment. They grow so fast that at least we know that the garments will have double (sometimes triple) use.
Make sure our baby has clothes that match what we are going to buy. This advice goes especially for parents who like to get out of the classic blue for kids and pink for girls.
When newborns prefer pants, pajamas and pajamas with foot included.
Prefer the bodies to the shirts, especially in winter. They always remain inside the pants / skirt and it avoids to cool the tripita.
The shoes: For newborns, to be warm (in winter), comfortable and soft. For the elders, avoid the cords; Velcro shoes that can be worn and removed are preferable.
The socks: neither small nor big as they can hurt their feet. In winter, buy them long to the knee, because when lifting the baby the pants are lifted and the legs are exposed.
