Three Important Factors to Consider when Buying Baby Clothes

1. Fabric

Imagine that a little baby has just joined your family. You immediately want to outfit your baby girl or boy in bright, fashionable, expensive clothes that will complement the adorableness. Sometimes, cute outfits can cause skin irritations and rashes in babies. Sometimes the problem is in the fabric.

Babies, particularly newborns, have sensitive skin. Most parents will choose cotton for their baby clothes. There are other options, such as soy-based fabrics which are both sustainable and gentle on the environment. They are also silky smooth and gentle on babies. This makes them ideal for baby clothes. We recommend fabrics such as cotton, especially organic cotton, azlon soy and rayon from bamboo. These fabrics come from nature or are derived from natural resources. They have great properties that make them suitable for baby clothes. Avoid bright colors, as they could contain fluorescent agents.


Safety is an important aspect of buying baby clothes. This can be overlooked by parents and their families who are often too busy. Millions of baby clothes are recalled every year because they do not meet safety standards. It is important to choose baby clothes that are safe.

Baby clothing that has decorations such as buttons, bows, or flowers should not be purchased. They can pose a danger to your health. You should attach decorations to a piece of clothing that must have them. Avoid wearing clothes that have drawstrings or waistbands as they can cause strangulation.

To protect babies from burns, you should choose either flame-resistant (chemically treated), or snug-fitting baby sleepwear. This applies especially to sizes 9-14 months for baby sleepwear. Babies are mobile at this age.

3.Beautiful Baby Gown

It is frustrating to buy a beautiful baby gown only to have it be too small. Make sure you get clothes that fit your baby. It is important that the clothes you choose are comfortable and allow your baby to move freely. Baby’s growth rate is amazing so make sure you account for it when making purchases.

If you’re unsure about the right size for your baby, most clothes come with standard measurements. These are only guidelines. Many babies fall between sizes. For example, their height and weight is 3-6 months.

We recommend that you buy the larger size if you are having trouble deciding on sizes. This will allow for growth spurts. Baby clothes should be easy to put on and take down. Oneies that are difficult to put on or take off, especially when you have to do so many things like changing diapers, feeding and burping, is not something you want. Instead of buttons, choose clothes that have snaps and/or zips. Avoid fanciness and think practicality. Check out the zippers and snaps in stores to ensure they are easy to use.
