Therefore it should be done after considering different aspects in order to avoid trouble. Here are some guidelines you need to consider when buying baby clothes irrespective of the gender of the baby.
When purchasing baby clothes or accessories, you should not buy those made mainly from polyester and the ones with dark colors. This is because material made of dark colors may contain a lot of dyes. Do not buy baby clothes that are made from fabrics that have been treated with formaldehyde based resins because they can cause allergic skin reaction. It is very important for the baby clothes to be very soft and warm. This will keep the soft skin of your baby free from rash. The new born baby needs special care when dressing or undressing it. For comfort and ease, always purchase loose clothes with wider neck and sleeves so as to avoid the baby from feeling unease when dressing or undressing.
Season is another very essential factor to consider when choosing baby clothes. If you expect your baby in summer season you should opt for soft and light clothes. If it is winter, you can purchase some warm woolen baby clothes that are soft and smooth. In addition you can buy warm head cover.
Purchase at least 10 bay clothes because they get dirty very fast and you will need to change the more often. It is advisable to wash the clothes before dressing your baby for the first time. Select the ones with adjustable zippers, straps or any other flexible settings. You can also purchase some few branded and fancy suites for your new baby if you will be planning to have a get together functions or parties. This will create a graceful impression to your visitors.
The choice of diapers to use is also challenging for anyone with a new born baby. You will be required to decide between using costly organic diaper or risk the health of your baby by using non-organic disposable diapers. If you opt for the later it advisable to go for the one that is chlorine free.
It is important to know that organic products are much safer as compared to non-organic. This is because organic items may have less harmful synthetic chemical (if any). Unfortunately not every person can afford these organic products because they are expensive. For instance, an organic baby mattress is very costly however you can purchase a more cost effective non synthetic mattress and buy an organic mattress pads or duvet covers. Always make sure that the bedding crib for your baby is flame resistant and also remember to air the non- organic mattress before use.
The budget should be accommodative. Never strain yourself by purchasing expensive baby clothes. The prices majorly depend on the trademark or the brands names. So you can decide to buy costly brands or go for the normal designs. Brand or trademark name will not affect the health of your baby.
