In order to achieve this, parents often embellish this by completing their baby’s presentation with cute baby clothes too, so that it makes people even more annoyed. So, in addition to protecting and giving comfort to babies, baby clothes now also function to make babies look more adorable.
There is nothing wrong with this, but don’t let the choice of baby clothes only be intended to make the baby look more beautiful, regardless of the essential function of the baby’s clothes itself, which is to protect and provide comfort for the baby. So, try to choose clothes to prioritize safety and comfort for the baby, then pay attention to the appearance.
Do not let the baby’s skin, which is still sensitive and smooth, turn red, experience spots or irritation because the baby’s clothes contain harmful substances that make the baby’s skin allergic. Or don’t let the baby’s digestive system be disturbed because, babies who like to gnaw at the ends of their clothes actually contain additives. What is even more dangerous is of course the presence of additives from clothes that can be inhaled by babies, which can cause respiratory problems in babies.
Because there are many things that must be considered before parents choose baby clothes, including:
Buy really quality baby clothes
Don’t be tempted by discounts or low prices offered by various baby clothing stores without knowing the quality. Avoid neglecting the quality of baby clothes, because you are tempted by cheap prices. For example, don’t let your baby wear it, the color of the clothes fades. The discoloration will be easily absorbed by the baby’s skin pores, and this is very dangerous for the baby. In addition, not neat stitches on baby clothes can also make babies uncomfortable. So always give the best for your baby, including the clothes, but not always buy clothes at high prices. If necessary, buy baby clothes that have a standard baby clothing certificate. (Also read: Maternity Clothes)
Avoid selecting or making baby clothes with pure nylon material, jeans or parachutes. Because these materials can make the baby hot easily. The hotter the baby, the easier the baby will sweat and this invites a lot of bacteria. In addition, avoid clothing that is too rough and hard. This kind of clothing will make your baby more prone to skin irritation. Choose clothes that are soft and smooth. Cotton baby clothes are good enough to choose, because apart from being soft, cotton can absorb sweat. In addition, use clothes according to the weather, for example, in the summer, use a slightly thin material to provide enough air for your baby’s body and vice versa.
Prioritize Comfort For Babies
Do not let the appearance, you are too excessive in adding baby clothes accessories. If you really want to wear accessories, use them sparingly, if possible, keep it as simple as possible. Some accessories are quite dangerous for babies. Avoid using accessories in the form of strings because they can choke the baby. Ribbons can also choke a baby. Easy-to-remove accessories, sequins, brooches or anything else, it is feared that the baby could reach them and put them in his mouth. Clothes hooks made of metal, such as zippers, are feared that they can rust and make the baby hurt when lying on their stomach, choose clothes with snap buttons, not ordinary buttons, because it is feared that they can come off and enter the baby’s mouth.
Also, don’t let your appearance choose complicated baby clothes. Choose a baby dress model that is simple and “normal” and practical that makes the baby comfortable when wearing it or when you change it. Don’t also choose clothes that are too tight, which actually makes the baby easily irritated. So pay attention to the size of your baby’s clothes. Remember, babies need comfort, choose clothes that really make the baby comfortable.
Supervise When Use
After you make sure that your clothes are safe and comfortable for the baby, don’t forget to keep an eye on the condition of your baby or your baby’s skin. Because we find it comfortable, it doesn’t mean that babies feel the same way. Pay attention after a while the baby is wearing clothes, whether the baby becomes scratching or the baby sweats easily or not or the baby becomes fussy. Then when the baby is bathed, trace the entire surface of the baby’s skin, whether there are red spots, irritation or other things.
Tips for washing baby clothes
Avoid washing baby clothes using powder detergent. Because this type of detergent usually contains harsher chemicals that can irritate the baby’s skin. So to make it safer, use only liquid detergent. Regarding fragrances, try to avoid them too, or if you want to keep using them, don’t overdo it, because the smell produced by fragrances comes from chemicals. And this is dangerous if the baby smells the scent.
