Shopping for your newborn is one of the most exciting and enjoyable aspects of parenthood. But buying baby clothes is not just about cute little outfits in different colors. There is more to it. Here is some information which can help you save time, money and stress.
The weight of your baby and the clothes you buy
Baby sizes go from Newborn and then from there they are in “Month” sizes. Some are a range like 0-3 months and some are a single month size like 6 months. The problem with baby sizes and size guides is that babies differ so much from one to the other. Some babies are far bigger than others at a given age. Also, every clothing manufacturer is different, so make sure to check and see if they have a sizing chart with weight or height requirements to help guide you in your search. Moreover, the consistent, rapid growth in babies means that parents will be buying new, bigger sizes for their child more often than at any other point in their child’s life.
Some general advice about buying baby clothes
– Because babies grow so quickly, you might want to consider buying clothes that fit them loosely.
– Keep in mind the season – warm clothes can cause much discomfort to your baby in summer as would light clothes in winter.
– Observe and touch the labels – these can sometimes cause itching to the baby and may also irritate the baby’s skin
Original ideas for buying clothes for a baby boy
Some companies offer customizable baby clothing which can tailored to your chosen colour, style and also embroidered with your baby’s name. Typically, they will produce clothes for both baby girls and baby boys. Remember that you should also be shopping for the occasion. You want your baby to have some special clothes for those family occasions or social events and perhaps cheaper clothes for everyday.
Original ideas for buying clothes for a baby girl
Besides the color (often shades of pink and purple) and the style of clothes (little dresses and frilled shirts) for a baby girl, little changes when compared to clothes for a baby boy. Baby girls, of course, look cute dressed in a feminine way. But first and foremost, the comfort of the child is always your priority so choosing the smoothest, quality fabrics is of pivotal importance when shopping for baby clothes of either gender. Remember that although girls can be a bit more exciting to dress, they too grow very quickly so the little purple dress you picked today might not fit her in a few weeks.
Gender DNA testing
Gender DNA testing offers you the opportunity to prepare for the birth of you baby girl or baby boy. They can save you much of the stress of shopping around once the baby is born. In fact, you can spend some quality time with your child by getting all the preparations done before the birth. Urine gender DNA tests can be done at just 9 weeks and offer an accuracy of 99%.
