Dressing a wiggling baby can be tough chore for any mum. Ensuring that your baby’s clothes fit properly is the first step to successful dressing. That being said, it is important to realise that all babies grow at different rates. These guidelines are meant to give you a general idea of which sizes will best suit your baby. It may be helpful to make notes as you shop about which sizes your little one fits into according to your favorite and most visited stores.
If you are shopping for baby clothes whilst pregnant, remember that you will most likely be showered with an abundance of clothing from friends and family members. Think about what you will need as well as how quickly your baby will outgrow many of the clothes designed for the early stages. However, also be mindful that a baby, especially a newborn, can go through many outfits in one day. Be sure to have plenty of versatile bodysuits and sleepsuits on hand.
It is wise to begin shopping for toddler clothes before you will need them. That way, you can have a good supply ready as your baby grows into them. Toddlers will not go through as many outfits per day as will babies. Keep this in mind as you shop. Like babies, toddlers tend to not hold still for long periods of time. Shop for clothes that are quick and easy to put on and take off of your little mover.
Choose clothes with snaps and zippers that are easily accessible and do not require a lot of bending or twisting on the part of you or your baby. Comfort is the key. Look for clothes made of natural fibres that can withstand frequent washing. Shop here to find baby clothes that are not only comfortable but adorably cute as well.
