Tips to Choose Suitable Clothing for Your New Born Baby
Before my baby was born, I was always thinking choosing clothing for him was as easy as a piece of cake, a tiny body figure fitted with tiny simple clothing, and that is all.
But now what I have learned is that it was not a simple thing that I used to think of. There is a long process of comparison and selecting before the decision is made.
For the material of the clothing, pure cotton is your primary choice.
For the newborn babies have very delicate skins and an undeveloped sweat gland system, they cannot disperse the heat and keep warm as well as we can. So the clothing material for them should be soft, light, thin, easy to absorb the water, well breathable, and good property in thermal keeping, helping to balance the heat and warmth condition in babies’ body systems and their faster-than usual metabolism. What’s more, pure cotton clothing feels quite comfortable, which is perfect for sensitive babies’ skin.
For the colors of the clothing, white, light pink and light blue are more appropriate.
You’d better not choose too bright-colored clothing. Because all those clothing is heavily dyed, which can irritate your baby’s vulnerable skin. And moreover, the newborns’ retinas are more accustomed to seeing things in light color which won’t irritate their mood.
Do not wear your baby with a romper.
Most mothers prefer to choose romper rather than split type clothing as the former one is more convenient when changing diapers. But wearing this kind of clothing brings more risks and dangers than benefits. The rompers will deform a regular development and growth of hip joints
Choose the clothing of simpler styles. No attires on the collar, sleeve cuffs, and pants legs.
Those attires and decorations will make the baby feel uncomfortable. What’s more, they can also cause many risks including suffocating. Replace the string with an elastic band to avoid the baby from being wrapped on the neck.
Choose loose socks and hats
There is no need to prepare shoes as babies are too young to wear them. A pair of loose sock is enough. But too tight means they will restrict the development and growth of the feet. So does the hat.
