Top Tips for Buying Baby Clothes

There are now quite a number on online baby shops in Philippines offering varieties of products especially in terms of clothing. It seems that the fashion industry surely did not just affect us as adults but also even the kids and babies. Because of this, parents sometimes forget the most important things to remember when shopping for baby clothes. As a result, they end up purchasing things that could cause potential harm to their baby in terms of different ways. That’s why it is important to have a clear understanding on what to purchase the best clothes for your baby. Here are a few things that parents should remember when buying baby clothes:

Right Size

It is important to keep in mind that even if babies tend to grow up fast, it is best to purchase clothing that are right for their age or one size ahead of your baby’s actual age. It may sound practical to buy and use a 12M onesie for your 6 months old, but it’s not good as it could be a cause for strangulation and suffocation.

Convenience

You need to think about the convenience of your little one when purchasing clothes for them. The clothes should be made out of a material, which can cater all their comfort needs. That’s when purchasing baby clothes that are made out of cotton with a little bit of stretch will do the trick.

Drawstrings

These is very common in baby stores here in the Philippines, and worse they even have tops for newborns with drawstrings! You are encouraged to stay away from purchasing such clothing. It has been identified that such are associated with entrapment and strangulation. Snap-ons are still the best alternatives, you just need to keep an eye on the little ones learning to un-snap them.

Quality of Material

The skin of your little one is extremely sensitive, that’s why you need to purchase baby clothes that are made out of the best quality materials. You should also see whether the baby clothes you purchase contain any harmful or toxic substances or anything at all that can irritate their skin.

Simple Clothing

You shouldn’t get carried away by the different clothing that are available for you to purchase in the stores. Ribbons, frills and other decorations have the ability to irritate the skin of your child and can cause rashes. Therefore, you need to stick to fuss free and simple clothing. In addition, you should stay away from purchasing clothes that come along with zippers.

    Your tips really emphasize donation, which is a good thing. Donating what you will not use and what is not in season may be great options for parents.
