So, you’re expecting a baby and making all the necessary preparations for the arrival of your new family member. How do you go about choosing clothes for your new little person? There’s much more than “blue for a boy…pink for a girl…twice as much for twins” when it comes time to select clothes for your new baby. To avoid the potential pitfalls that ensnare many new parents there are a few things to keep in mind to help make the process as seamless as possible.

Comfort Over Cuteness

Too many parents get all gushy and sentimental when shopping for baby clothes. It’s very easy to look at that little blue sailor suit or little pink petticoat and think to oneself “how cute will little Keanu or Britney look in this!” Consider however that your newborn’s skin is very tender and quite sensitive. That cute little outfit could cause quite a bit of discomfort if it’s made of the wrong materials, doesn’t breathe easily, or is too constrictive. Clothes for a newborn should be soft, absorbent, and made of natural fibers. Think cotton. There will be plenty of time to embarrass your child by forcing her to wear clothes she hates when she’s a teenager. For the time being, choose outfits that put the baby’s comfort over all else.

Accessibility

One point that some parents seem to forget when selecting baby clothes is that they will need to be changed… often. Infant wear with too many buttons, straps, and fasteners can quickly become troublesome as the item needs to be undone and redone again and again to allow access for diaper changing or removing and replacing the entire outfit due to soiling of some kind. Remember that babies are messy little people and that you and your partner are going to be the ones cleaning up those messes, in one way or another, for the next eighteen to twenty years. Make it easy on yourselves now while the child and the messes are still small.

Ease of Care

A very important consideration in baby clothing is ease of care. Always look at the care labels while you’re still in the store and make sure that the item is machine washable and doesn’t have any special restrictions regarding detergents, bleaches, or fabric softeners. You’re not likely to come across any baby clothing that requires dry cleaning, but you always want to be sure. Cotton is definitely the fabric of choice for baby clothing for the reasons mentioned above, but cotton does have a nasty tendency to shrink when washed in hot water. Your baby will outgrow her clothes quickly enough, so items that contain a blend of cotton and other, non-shrinking, fibers may be acceptable. Make sure that the cotton to poly ratio is weighted in cotton’s favor and you should still be all right in terms of comfort while ensuring that little Paris will be able to get into her duds for as long as possible.

Tips on How You Can Find Cheap Baby Clothes https://babytastes.com.au/tips-on-how-you-can-find-cheap-baby-clothes/ https://babytastes.com.au/tips-on-how-you-can-find-cheap-baby-clothes/#respond Fri, 15 Dec 2017 12:32:09 +0000 http://babytastes.com.au/?p=60 We love our babies so much and we want them to have the best things in life, and also the best clothes in the world, but best doesn’t always mean expensive, so you need to start learning how you can find cheap baby clothes for your little angel.

We love our babies so much and we want them to have the best things in life, and also the best clothes in the world, but best doesn’t always mean expensive, so you need to start learning how you can find cheap baby clothes for your little angel. You’re reading this article for two reasons: first is you are a parent and you’re looking to get amazing baby clothes at a relatively practical cost, or you’re looking for baby clothes, not for your own child, but to give as a present for someone else’s baby. Either way, I’m sure this article will be very helpful to you.

Check out these 5 tips on how you can find absolutely cheap baby clothes for your little one:

1. Join shopping clubs – Nowadays, online shopping clubs are everywhere. You can join these clubs either by requesting to join or through an invitation from a member of the group. These clubs serve as exclusive or private shopping clubs, in which only members can participate. However, before you become a member, you need to sign-up. Usually, these sites offer free membership, and registration only requires your e-mail address in order to create an account with them. These clubs usually offer special deals with huge discounts, which are only available for a limited number of days, usually 2-4 days only. This is a great way to save up on your shopping for baby clothes.

There are certain things to remember, however, when getting involved in online shopping clubs. First of all, check the return policy for the items you buy. This is very important, because shopping for clothes online is a totally different thing. The baby clothes might be too big or too small, so you wouldn’t be able to use them after all. Check if the seller allows items to be returned or exchanged. Another thing is that you need to be aware that delivery of items for online shopping usually takes a couple of weeks, or even months. The delivery period is usually indicated in the deal, so make sure you check this before making your purchase. Lastly, you may think that getting a deal here could save you a lot of money; but try to search around somewhere else to see if you can find a better deal.

2. Search for deals or special offers online – When you sign-up to online shopping sites, they usually give you a 10%-20% discount on your very first purchase, so you can take that opportunity to reduce costs. However, it is only a one-time discount, so from time to time, try to check if they’re giving out coupons to shoppers or if there are upcoming discounted sales. Also, you can search online for coupons on certain items. For example, you can type in “baby clothes coupon”. You’re lucky if there is an available coupon at that time. Other times, there won’t be any result for this, but it’s always worth a try. One popular site where you can usually get deals is dealtaker.com. This website has different categories wherein a baby section is included. Also, you can check out the Deals, Free Stuff, Gift Cards, Grocery Coupons, and Free Shipping sections. If you are determined and resourceful enough, you will find lots of opportunities online. Some shopping sites also provide links to other sites, and you can just keep browsing until you find what you’re looking for.

3. Shop at eBay – This site has enticed lots of shoppers worldwide when it comes to huge bargains on any kind of item, from musical instruments, to books, house and lot, skin and body treatments – name it, and you have it. Here, you will find both brand new and used items. The advantage in buying used clothes for your baby is that you get the item reasonably cheaper than its original retail price. When you make your search on eBay, make sure that you type along the word new or not (new with tag) with it. Just remember to check customer feedbacks on the seller so you can be sure that your transaction is safe. If you need the product right away, you can buy it instantly, but if not, you can place your bid for that item. You have to know how the system works. As with any other auction, the highest bidder gets the item. Just one tip in bidding is, don’t go too far with your bid. No matter how much you love a particular product, there is no reason for you to spend a fortune on it, well, unless you’re a celebrity or a very rich person, that is. Otherwise, know when to walk away. If it doesn’t fit your budget, look for something else.

4. Buy off-season – Buy summer clothes in autumn and buy winter clothes in spring. This way, you get the item for half its original price. Winter clothes are most expensive in autumn, while summer clothes are most expensive in spring, so you should be wise enough to know that if you want to find cheap baby clothes, then do the shopping in another season. That’s one of the best shopping strategies you can ever have. However, you have to consider the baby’s growth by then. When buying clothes for babies, it is always advisable to buy bigger sizes, especially for newborn babies. They grow quickly at this stage so it would be much better to give them clothes for when they will be bigger, like 6-12 months and up. Baby clothes are labeled accordingly from newborn, then 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-12 months, and so on, so it would be easier for you to pick out baby clothes according to their age.
I hope these tips can help you on how you can find cheap baby clothes, either online, or locally. In all of this, still remember that you want the best for your baby, so in spite of trying hard to find low-cost items, make sure the quality is good. After all, our little angels always deserve the best.

How to Choose Clothes for Your Baby Properly? https://babytastes.com.au/how-to-choose-clothes-for-your-baby-properly/ https://babytastes.com.au/how-to-choose-clothes-for-your-baby-properly/#respond Sun, 19 Nov 2017 12:25:20 +0000 http://babytastes.com.au/?p=57 Nowadays, there are various kinds of baby clothes for mothers to choose and buy for their babies. However, there is a fact that this kind of shopping is not as easy as many people think. Clothes are very important in taking care of your baby only after nutritious diet and good sleep schedule. When choosing clothes for […]]]>

When choosing clothes for a baby, the first thing you need to consider is the size of the clothes. Each baby has its own size; however, clothes often have a limited size. Therefore, you must consider choosing the best clothes which are fitted well with your baby. Choosing too large clothes for your baby is not recommended because this may affect the movement of the baby. Here is the standard size form for baby clothes:

Baby’s weight Baby’s length Age Size
2.8 – 4 kg 47 – 55 cm Newborn 1
4 – 6 kg 55 – 60 cm 3 months 2
6 – 8 kg 60 – 70 cm > 6 months 3
8 – 10 kg 70 – 75 cm > 9 months 4
10 -11 kg 75 – 80 cm 12 months 5

In terms of material, you should choose clothes made from 100% cotton for tender and vulnerable skin of your baby (especially for newborn baby). Cotton material is soft, smooth and dry as it can easily absorb sweat which makes the baby avoid stiffness, itchiness, and rashes. However, the material has some disadvantages as the more you wash it, the rougher it becomes. After many times of washings, the fibers gradually lose its softness and elasticity. So you have to pay attention to preserve and care about the ways to maintain the cotton fibers.

Besides material, you should consider choosing suitable colors as well as patterns for your baby. Light colors are the best options as they do not only help you to easily detect stains but also stimulate the baby nervous system as they make the baby has a good sleep.

You should choose clothes with simple patterns to reduce chemicals and dyes which are not good for your baby. For infants, long sleeves clothes in order that the baby’s abdomen, legs, and hands are always kept warm due to the fact that the infant is susceptible to catch cold and stomach.

You should not wash the baby’s clothes with an adult’s clothes because this makes baby’s clothes easily lose elasticity and become deformed when baby’s clothes are washed too hard. Moreover, detergents for adult’s clothes are not suitable with soft and thin clothes of the baby. Washing together may transfer harmful bacteria from adult’s clothes to baby’s clothes.

Thus, using detergents for baby and adult’s clothes is highly recommended. Furthermore, you should notice the ingredients in detergents for baby to ensure that it is safe for the delicate skin of your baby. You should choose detergents with gentle odors and using fabric softeners after washing. Using fabric softeners is a way to prevent clothes from roughness and loose.

The last things to remember is to avoid hanging baby’s clothes in harsh sunlight as it makes the clothes becomes rougher and gradually damage the clothes. You should only hang the clothes in mild sunlight, spacious and windy places.
