Care for Baby with clothes

Choice of clothes

When the time comes to choose baby girl dresses for your baby, certain criteria can guide you.


Easy to put on

Choose pajamas with buttons or zippers in the front rather than the back. Also, pajamas with snaps or a crotch zipper will make diaper changes easier.

Also, make sure the sleeves aren’t too tight. Stretch fabric is also a good option to make dressing easier. Finally, avoid clothes that must be worn over the head or opt for a fairly wide neckline.


Easy care

A baby gets dirty easily and often. Opt for machine-washable clothes.


Choosing the size

The summer dress for girls is labeled according to the child’s age. The following sizes are generally found newborn, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, and 12 months.

However, these labels can be misleading. Indeed, from birth, some babies are already too big for the “newborn” size. Similarly, at 1 month, a baby often puts on “3-month” size clothes. Until the age of 1 year, it is therefore suggested to double the age of the baby, if he has an average weight, in order to have a better idea of ​​the necessary size. For example, if we double the age of a 2-month-old baby, we get 4 months. We will therefore choose the size 3-6 months. A 7-month-old baby will wear 12-18 months instead.

Conversely, labels that mention height or weight are more reliable. Finally, it is better not to buy too many clothes of the same size. Indeed, babies grow quickly, and some clothes may never be worn.


How much?

In the first weeks, you need 6 to 8 pajamas per size and 2 or 3 more if the baby also wears pajamas during the day. The number of pajamas and clothes needed, however, depends on several factors such as the frequency of washing or the frequency with which the baby regurgitates.


Safe pajamas

In the United States, the law regulates the making of children’s pumpkin pajamas to reduce the risk of them igniting in the event of a fire. The choice of fabric and the design of the garment must therefore respect certain very specific criteria. For example, the sleeves must be adjusted to the wrists and the decorations such as lace, embroidery or fringes must not protrude from the garment.

In addition, the fabric should not catch fire too quickly. However, the use of chemicals to retard the spread of flames is not necessary. If the manufacturer chooses to use them anyway, he must ensure that they are not toxic. The presence of these products must be indicated on the label.


Clothing care

Babies have sensitive skin. Certain precautions are therefore necessary during maintenance to avoid allergic reactions and irritation.


Use a mild soap

Do a second rinse to remove all traces of soap.

Avoid fabric softeners which can be irritating to some babies.

Sometimes it’s easier to wash baby clothes or Sun San sandals separately from the clothes of the rest of the family. Also, new clothes should always be washed before they are worn for the first time.


To avoid stains

If your baby gets dirty from spitting up or the diaper spilling over, clean the stain immediately. For example, you can soak the garment in soapy water to prevent stains from setting in. If you’re outside, using a disposable wipe will remove the bulk until you get home.

How to dress a baby according to the temperature?

A baby cannot tell if he is cold or hot. It is therefore important to be vigilant to ensure that it remains comfortable, regardless of the temperature. In addition, a baby under 1 month quickly loses heat through the extremities, especially through the head and the upper and lower limbs. In general, it is suggested to dress the baby with a thickness of more than an adult.

When the temperature outside is below 25°C, a baby will usually need a tank top and pajamas that cover the feet. If it’s cold in the room, a beanie will keep him from losing heat through his head. A small blanket can also keep the baby warm. In cold weather, it is essential to protect the extremities such as the feet and hands.

When the temperature exceeds 25°C, light clothing or a tank top will suffice. If your baby’s neck is wet, it’s a sign that he’s too hot. In an air-conditioned place, however, it may be necessary to cover it more.


To sleep

As it is recommended not to put a blanket in the crib to reduce the risk of suffocation, a sleeping bag can also be useful to keep the baby warm at night.


To remember

Baby clothes should be easy to put on and easy to care for.

Age labels are often misleading. Those that mention height or weight instead are more reliable.

Baby clothes should be washed with mild soap and rinsed well when washing.

In general, it is suggested to dress the baby with a thickness of more than an adult.
