When you purchase baby clothes, its recommended to stick to one color scheme. Bright colors are the best, since they arent easily soiled like pastels, more easily seen, and are unisex. They’re a really good idea for outerwear, since it’s a lot easier to see a child wearing a bright red jacket in a busy supermarket than one wearing light pink.
Be practical. Babies aren’t neat, so getting machine-washable clothing will be invaluable. Fancy clothes aren’t practical at all. They often interfere with movement and aren’t usually comfortable. Clothes made of cotton and other natural fabrics are more comfortable, especially in hot weather.
Obviously, the climate where you live and the season in which your child is born determine your initial layette needs. If youre not sure what you need, get some ideas by talking to other parents, or you can also observe how the other babies are dressed. Newborn-sizes are only good for most infants until around 2 to 3 weeks. It is important not to overdress your baby, particularly when the temperature is hot. If you want a guide, just put as many layers of clothing on your baby as you are wearing. Also remember that if you’re warm, your baby probably is, too.
