First-time parents are always surprised that there is such a great variety of baby onesies in the marketplace. Here’s a straightforward guide to finding that type of newborn clothing least likely to irritate your baby’s skin, or drive you crazy trying to put it on them.
Baby clothing is made from a great variety of fabric types. Some of these are great deal softer than the others, and I can make a huge difference for babies with extra sensitive skin. And some clothing is made with particularly harsh dies, or chemicals used by manufacturers in a spraying process that is intended to make the clothing look crisper at point-of-sale. It’s good to know about how different manufacturers handle these things, to make sure you put nothing on the infant that is an absolutely safe and comfortable to wear.
And certainly watch out for dangerous tags, labels, or small decorations affixed to the outfit. Anything potentially irritating should not be allowed to come into contact with the skin of your baby. For that reason, will always recommend simple clothing for newborns. Find soft materials that will not chafe your baby’s skin, because the last thing you want to deal with is a spreading rash that leads to a very unhappy child!.
We favor onesies with a front opening that also make it easy to spread and close as the baby comes in and out of it. Onesies with an opening that runs all the way down the legs make it super easy to change diapers, which can sometimes be necessary when out of the house. For example, quickchange at a shopping mall bathroom. The last thing you want is the frustration of juggling a baby, their clothing, diaper bags and creams all at the same time.
Also, read up on the various reviews of onesies that are available. Amazon can be a great source of actual practical parent reviews. By learning about other people’s experiences, you might avoid buying the types of clothing that will frustrate you and your baby. This is crucial if you plan to buy things like baby onesies from online stores. As you well know, product details online can be incomplete, vague, or even misleading. It’s hard to get a good idea from the seller themselves about what to expect.
Between the product review and actual buyer comments, you should have a pretty good idea that you’re about to order something that will need to be returned immediately. While the product descriptions can help parents make the right decisions, they need to know what they should be looking for and not choose something they will end up regretting later.
