Newborn Baby Clothes - Tips to Consider Before Buying

Baby Clothes Shopping 101

Babies have a knack of getting their clothes filthy; it’s not uncommon for a baby to wear 3-4 outfits a day, not to mention how fast they grow. With all of the cute clothes and little dresses and outfits out there it is easy to see why clothes might be a popular baby gift. However there are things to be considered before making a purchase. When considering what outfits to chose you should consider the following guidelines:

  • The gender of the baby. Pink for girls and blue for boys. It is also important to remember that not all parents find out what sex their baby is before the baby arrives so neutral colors like grey and beige are always a good choice.
  • Consider ease of changing. The outfit should have easy access to the diaper (like snap crotches) so changes can be as painless as possible.
  • If you are going to be buying clothes for the baby to grow into be sure to take into account the seasons. A baby born in June will not be needing a darling short set in December.
  • The location of decorative items like snaps & buttons should be considered. While these accessories can be cute, depending on the location, they may also be uncomfortable for the baby. Also buttons can pose a choking hazzard for babies as well.
  • Since the mother is bound to get an abundance of newborn clothing & babies grow fast, it’s also a good idea to purchase a 6 - 12 month outfit. This will give the baby something to grow into.
  • Consider a gift card to a baby clothing store in lieu of an outfit. This will allow the parents to choose something they find appropriate for their new baby.
