Caring and nursing for the baby, at least in the first few months, is perhaps the most difficult task of motherhood; and an important question during this time period is how to determine the baby’s wardrobe.
The perfect guide for your baby's first wardrobe
Here is a more or less comprehensive list of things you need to keep in mind when buying the first wardrobe of your baby.
- Comfort: It comes first and foremost for a baby. The clothes should be loose-fitting, especially near the neck region or the armpits and chest. You don’t want your child to have any trouble because of a piece of apparel you bought.
- Ease of wearing: You don’t want to waste time fiddling with buttons in such a busy schedule. Skip them by using zippers or better still, snap closures. It is easy to put on, and easy to take off as well.
- Material: All doctors recommend the only cotton to be used as a cloth material for everything baby-related. While buying your newborn baby clothes, make sure they are made of soft and feathery organic cotton. Any other material might cause irritation or rashes.
- Size and number of dresses: You would, of course, buy the right size for the baby, but do not buy many at the same time. During the early days, the baby grows the fastest and outgrows dresses quicker than ever. That would mean a laundry load for a while but will save some money.
- Wardrobe type: Finally to the type of clothes. Go for simple unisex baby clothes for your kid – bodysuits, one piece, pyjamas and tops, socks and caps – all these in cotton is ideal for the baby in the first few weeks.
Just purchasing is not enough. Make sure you don’t overdress or underdress the baby and make them uncomfortable.
