Guidelines to choose clothes for babies

Clothes decide the mood of your child. So select the ones your child is most comfortable in.

Keep the following things in mind while buying clothes for your child:


  • The first and foremost thing to keep in mind, while choosing clothes for babies is their comfort of wearing and our comfort in changing their clothes easily.
  • While buying clothes for your child purchase a size one more than your baby’s actual size as babies tend to grow very fast in the initial few months.
  • The other thing to keep in mind is their individual growth and the seasons or the changing weather conditions. If your baby is 6 months old, he would be able to wear sizes till 9 or 12 months. It completely depends on your baby’s growth. The clothes you buy for this summer may not be useful until next summer, so purchase accordingly.
  • Try buying a minimum number of clothes in each size as babies grow very fast.
  • Consider the price of the product and compare with its quality and value of money. There is no point buying fancy and expensive clothes for babies. Firstly, fancy clothes cannot be used every day and even babies feel uncomfortable in such them. They get cranky if you make them wear fancy outfits. Secondly, babies grow very fast so you won’t be able to use it for longer periods. Invest in good quality and comfortable clothing which is easy on the pockets too.
  • Baby outfits must be easy and simple. Not very tight or very loose. There should not be any tight fittings in the sleeves or legs or around the neck. There should be no strings or ribbons around neck, wrists, and ankles. Even elastic bands shouldn't be too tight. See that the zip is in the front of the dress instead of back to help them change easily.
  • Ensure that there are no irritating or itchy tags or labels on the garment before using it.
  • Choose a good quality fabric that stands excessive washing and wearing.
  • Try to know your child’s likes and dislikes regarding their clothing. Buy what they prefer wearing.
