Cotton baby clothes - buy online clothes for newborns and infants

Updated on July 11, 2011

Cotton baby clothes

The arrival of a little baby is always exciting time in the family.

It also calls for a lot of planning- right from the nursery, to furniture, to toys, to baby clothes- the list just doesn't seem to end.

Choosing clothes for babies has to be done with care.

As babies have soft, delicate skins that can break into a rash if the material used is not good, soft cotton baby clothes would be the ideal choice.

Organic cottons are a safe bet, you can be sure that your baby's skin will not react differently to them.

You also need to keep in mind to choose clothes that are comfortable and loose fitting , with wide necks and zippers that do not cause you to pull your baby arms through them and cause any discomfort.

Soft colors with no harsh dies are very important.

Safe Cotton clothes for your baby

Cotton is a natural fiber and is well known for keeping the body cool and comfortable.

They do not have those irritants that are part of the man-made synthetic fibers.

And you can also be sure that you will get them at great prices from the comfort of your homes. You can see that for yourself as you check out the products.

Here are a few pointers with regard to sizes, styles, designs etc. that may help you make the choice that is best- suited for your little wonder.

Tips for buying comfortable cotton baby clothes

Though you would want cute clothes for your baby, please remember that your baby must be comfortable wearing the clothes that you pick. In this view, cotton baby clothes or those with a high percentage of cotton mixed in the fabric are highly recommended.

You may have to keep in mind that clothing sizes may differ from one manufacturer to another. When buying baby clothes, always buy clothes that are bigger, as babies come in different sizes, newborn-size baby clothes do not fit healthy full term babies. Babies grow at a rapid pace in the first year of the birth. So if you are spending a lot of money on buying baby clothes, spend it wisely by buying some clothes in bigger sizes.

Buying new born clothes sizes may be a huge waste; 0-3 month’s size clothing would be a sensible option, which the baby can wear for a longer time. I have a lot of baby clothes that have been left unused or were rarely used because my baby had outgrown them before long. Sleep suits that are not enclosed at the feet are a better option as they will last a baby longer.

More tips for buying baby clothes

Certain styles are better than others for newborns and infants. Stretchsuits, onesies, pajamas and vests are practical and comfortable in the first few months of a baby’s life. Changing nappies or diapers will be easier with these styles.

Make sure that while buying baby clothes, you put comfort before style or pattern or design. It is very tempting to choose fancy looking clothes. Like all parents you would want to have your baby looking good, don’t fall prey to that urge.

Keep in mind that clothes that have small neck openings or too many frills or elastic bands can hurt or may be irritable to the infant’s tender skin.

Look for clothes that can be fastened easily with snaps, buttons may be not be a wise choice as they are hard and may make the baby feel uncomfortable.

Cotton socks and booties to match

Cotton baby clothes are usually machine washable. With the number of chores that you would have, with a little baby around, it is wise to choose clothes that are machine washable. The advantage of buying cotton baby clothes is that they get softer with each wash.

Socks and booties too of soft cotton or cotton mixes would be a preferable choice for infants or newborns.

Remember, heaven sends big gifts in small packages and leaves you to take care of the wrapping!! Wish you a happy time with your baby and shopping for the little one too!!

      Hi Sinea Pies,isn't that a wonderful change in the right direction, there is nothing like natural fibers, especially for infants and toddlers. Thanks for the visit and the comment.

      Parents are going "green" with their baby's clothes more and more these days as allergic reactions are possible with other fibers. Good hub!
