Updated on May 21, 2011

Of the most enjoyable things of being a parent is decorating your little, lovely baby. You always try to find all kinds of amazing designed baby clothes.

Every parent loves to see their baby dressed beautifully. When parents choose their baby clothes, it is important to select items that are fashionable, functional, safe, and comfortable for their baby.

Choosing materials

Choosing material is very important especially for a new born baby. You must choose items made of the finest, softest fabrics. Natural fibers are always the best. You must make sure that decorative items such as buttons, bows and laces are not in a place that might bother your baby as babies have delicate skin. Make sure also that decorative items don't pose choking hazard. It's better to buy materials which are machine washable and dryer safe, to save your time and effort and enjoying more time with your baby.

Finding the right colour

You must consider colours you're going to buy. I see white and light colours as stain magnets. It's really impossible to remove stains from white and light coloured clothes, I bought a nice white dress for my daughter when she was a baby and it was very nice and loved it very much. The first time I dressed her this dress we went to a restaurant where a big ketchup stain which was impossible to be removed. I decided not to buy white dresses or any light coloured clothes for her again. You spend hours trying to manage it but the result is a disaster most of the time. Some parents really love it and I agree that babies look great in light colours so my advice to them is never give your baby food when she's wearing it :).

      Yes daffodil, my first baby used to cry and I found red scars on her neck and chin, it was because of the synthetic decorations in her cloths. I decided to buy all organic and cotton. Thanks for commenting here ;)
