Things to keep in mind for baby clothing !


As soon as our little bundle of joy arrives all we want to do is make them look adorable with different types of outfits. We sometimes tend to forget that babies grow super fast and we splurge our budget in buying too many clothes for them which might not be any use to them within a month.

So, save the budget for 0 to 3 months, do not hurry to buy the clothes in advance as you will have better idea about the size after the baby comes.

Although it's important to keep the newborn warm make sure you do not overheat them by making them wear multiple layers of clothes or wrapping them in rugs.

Following are the list of outfits you need to keep ready once your baby arrives :

1. 2 Warm blanket
2. 6 pairs of socks
3. 6 pairs of mittens : No matter what the weather is make sure you make them wear mittens for their fast growing nails.
4. 6 onesies : Take one size bigger so that baby gets a little extra space for stretching. You can take the button or zip ones. Be careful with the zip as sometimes it may pinch the baby skin.
5. Cotton caps : To cover the babies head during winters.
6. 8 Baby singlets : These are the most comfortable and easiest when it comes to changing diapers for the baby.
7. Burp cloth or napkins : These needs to be soft cotton to avoid rashes as we would frequently use them to wipe baby's face.
8. Hooded towels for a quick wrap post their bath.

  • The fabric need to be soft and breathable.
    - Avoid buying clothes with beads or any type of attachment which may cause irritation to the baby.
  • Check for clothes which has a broad neck for easy dress and undress.
  • It is mandatory to pre wash all the new clothes before using them on babies.
  • As baby is skin is very delicate and prone to infections it's best to iron all the washed baby clothes.
  • Ironing applies high heat in the clothes helps in killing the microorganisms which settle on the wet clothes.
  • During winter dress your newborn in the same number of layers as you are wearing for yourself, plus one.
