5 Important factors to consider when buying baby clothes

Buying and choosing the right apparels for your baby can be an overwhelming and stressful task. From choosing the right size to ensuring the comfort of your little one to the many designs available, we are constantly overwhelmed by choices. To help make this process a little easier, here are 5 main factors to consider.
  1. Fabric

There are many types of fabrics available with different levels of softness and weight. Choose a fabric that is gentle on your little one’s delicate skin and appropriate for the weather.
Some of the most common fabrics are mixed cotton, organic cotton and bamboo fabric for Singapore’s humid weather. Find out more about the benefits of bamboo fabric here.
  1. Ease of wearing and functionality

Babies sleep a lot in their early years so accessories such as sleep bags, mittens and booties are a must. Having clothes that is easy to change in and out of can also keep your little one happy and prevent blowouts. Look for pieces such as rompers or jumpsuits! Oeteo’s Easywear also helps make moments like these less stressful with in-built mittens and booties. Find out more about our innovations here!
  1. Easy to maintain

In your little one’s early days you will find yourself going through a couple of sets of clothing and towels in a day because baby might spit up or create a mess. Hence choosing pieces that are easy to wash and launder will save you a lot of time and hassle.  
  1. Safety

Chose pieces that are simple and avoid ones with beads, sequins or small pieces that can be a hazard for baby if he/she chokes on it. Avoid outfits with drawstrings or lose ribbons and frills as well as it presents a danger of strangulation.
  1. Cost

Babies grow up fast and what fits them this month might not fit the next. So, it is understandable if you are on the lookout for more affordable pieces. However, it is important to note that baby might have sensitive skin and buying quality clothing will give you a peace of mind and keep your baby happy. Never compromise on quality for price!

All in all, it is exciting to buy new and cute clothes for your little one but it is important to know your little one’s needs and make the best decision based on that. A happy baby makes mummy happy too!
