There are certainly no shortage of options when it comes to buying baby clothes and you may find yourself spoilt for choice. To help you out, we have created a list of the four things you should think about when you are buying clothes for a baby. Whether you are buying everyday outfits or personalised baby gifts, there are a few things to consider. It’s not simply a case of choosing the cutest item and hoping for the best.
4 Things to Think About When Buying Baby Clothes
- Fabric – A baby’s skin is very sensitive, so ensure you choose baby clothes that are soft and unlikely to irritate them. This is why cotton is one of the ‘go to’ fabrics for baby clothes, as it’s soft against their skin and unlikely to cause any discomfort. Though some clothes may be ‘cute’ or ‘on trend’, they may also be scratchy and rough, and should therefore be avoided.
- Size – There is no denying the hassle that comes with returning and exchanging clothes, so think about size before you buy baby clothes. You should choose the size that is comfortable and large enough that the baby can move freely, and has some growing room. Babies grow very quickly and therefore it’s best to buy clothes that will still fit after a growth spurt.
- Safety – It is important to buy baby clothes that meet safety standards and don’t raise any safety concerns, otherwise you could be putting your baby at risk. For example, avoid clothing with drawstrings and decorations as these are choking hazards.
- Cost – When you are buying baby clothes, cost should definitely be a deciding factor. Luckily, there is something to suit every budget. It is usually best to avoid cheap baby clothes, as some are poorly made and low quality, but this does not mean you need to spend a fortune. Babies grow extremely quickly, and there is no need to break the bank for an outfit they will only wear a few times.
