If you’re thinking of baby clothes as gifts for baby then there are some key pointers to consider:
Unless the clothes you are buying are for a one-off occasion you need to make sure the clothes can be washed and dried in a machine otherwise they will be way too fussy and impractical for the parents. Ensure you double check the labels before you buy. You’ll find there are more hand wash and dry clean only clothes around than you would think!
Comfort is key when it comes to a baby. They have very sensitive skin and zips, press studs and elasticated arms, legs and waists can soon aggravate the baby and cause discomfort. If there is a zip then make sure there is a layer of fabric between it and the baby’s skin. Elastic should be well covered and ensure there are no rough edges to press studs that could rub against the baby’s skin.
Always choose clothes that can be easily layered. Babies tend to wear one layer more than an adult would unless the weather is very hot. If you live somewhere where its prone to the cold look at buying fleecy coats and suits which offer warmth but aren’t too bulky or heavy.
