You touch your newborn’s skin and feel a surge of emotion at how soft it is. It’s like a piece of silk. However, it’s also very sensitive, so you must care for it as much as possible. This care starts with your choice of their clothes. It’s best if they’re made of soft fabric. How do you distinguish between what is and isn’t appropriate?
Although your baby isn’t a newborn anymore, it’s still a good idea to choose practical clothes. Stretchy bodysuits, t-shirt tops, cotton fabric, elastic-waist pants and tops with envelope necks make dressing and undressing easier for you both.
Acrylics are prone to stretching, so take care to follow the care label instructions on each garment carefully. It could mean the difference between a cardigan that fits like a glove and a cardigan that just hangs baggily.
