Choosing baby clothes
Babies grow out of clothes very quickly, so you don’t need to buy lots of any one item. For daytime baby clothes, try to buy or borrow things that are slightly too large, because your baby will get more wear out of them. For sleepwear, look for close-fitting things with low fire hazard labels. When you do buy or borrow baby clothes, look for cotton material to put near your baby’s sensitive skin. Wool and other fabrics can irritate his skin, although it’s OK to use clothes made from these fabrics as outer layers. Also, cotton clothes will keep baby cooler in hot weather than clothes made from acrylic fibres. As your baby starts to move around, it makes sense to choose clothes that are comfortable and don’t restrict movement.
