Top 10 Tips for Selecting Baby Clothes and Accessories

Do you have a baby girl or boy on the way? Like many new parents, you likely want the best for your little one.

For many parents, it starts with the basics: safety, security, and well-being. Don’t worry, Beibamboo has you covered.

Choosing clothes for your child may seem daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. Your baby can have a unique style, just like you.

The biggest difference is that you’re picking the clothes for your baby. You’re likely looking for three things in baby clothing: ease of use, durability that grows with your baby, and protection from the elements.

How to Buy Baby Clothes

Babies come in all shapes and sizes and grow quickly. So, it makes sense that baby clothes should come in various sizes, colors, and be easy to use.

Whether you’re choosing bodysuits (onesies), sleepers, pants, or hats, wouldn’t it be great if those clothes grew with them? This would extend the life of the outfits as your infant grows into toddler clothes.

The only challenge may be the variety, selection, styles, and colors. The possibilities are endless, so keep a few key things in mind.

Top 10 Tips for Selecting Baby Clothes and Accessories

  1. Know the Gender? If you’re still deciding on names while waiting to be surprised by your baby’s gender, go for gender-neutral garments and accessories. When registering for the baby shower, select gender-neutral clothing colors.

  2. White Clothes Are No Longer Scary Kids are messy, but stains aren’t impossible to remove from white clothes. White doesn’t react chemically like dyed clothes. Add some chlorine bleach to stains and wash in hot water. White also pairs well with other styles for mixing and matching.

  3. Adjustable Clothes Are Your Best Friend Children grow quickly, often outgrowing clothes in a month. Look for adjustable clothing that expands and grows with your child. This helps stretch your dollar further and provides durable, long-lasting outfits.

  4. Fancy Outfits Are a Big No Fancy outfits are tempting but keep them to a minimum. Opt for neutral-colored onesies, rompers, trousers, and hats for everyday wear. Simple clothes are easier to care for and fit longer.

  5. Unsure About Your Child’s Size and Fit? One-size-fits-all isn’t always accurate. Some brands offer adjustable sizes based on height, which is easier to measure than weight.

  6. Comfort Comes Before Fashion Comfort is key. Choose soft fabrics like bamboo fiber and avoid itchy or poking stitching. Clothes with seams and labels on the outside are ideal.

  7. Keep the Season in Mind Dress your child according to the weather to avoid illness. Choose clothes made from 50% bamboo viscose and 50% organic cotton for comfort in any season.

  8. Hygiene Comes First Babies and toddlers have weaker immune systems. Choose clothes that withstand high-temperature washing and are made from materials unaffected by harsh chemicals.

  9. Choose Washable Clothes Ensure all clothes are machine washable at 60 degrees for proper sanitation.

  10. Keep It Simple Fancy clothes and accessories can be enticing, but simplicity is key. Look for wide-necked or strapped clothes, front zippers or snaps, and loose sleeves for ease of use and comfort.

Bonus Tip Avoid clothes with formaldehyde or heavy metals. Truly sustainable manufacturers start with organic farming.

In Conclusion

Parenting can be challenging, but these tips simplify choosing baby clothes. Whether shopping for a baby girl or boy, keeping comfort, hygiene, and safety in mind ensures your child is comfortable and happy. These tips help prevent skin problems and discomfort, making your decisions easier.
