Tips for buying baby and toddler clothes

Getting used to being a parent is stressful enough without having to worry about buying clothes for your bundle of joy. It may be tempting for parents and the extended family to buy every adorable onesie they set their eyes on, but the truth is your little one only needs a limited number of outfits in the first months.

Baby clothes come in a wide range of styles, colors and sizes, so it's important to choose those that fit well and allow your baby to move around easily. With the wide selection of baby clothes at Every Day Low Prices from Walmart, building a wardrobe for your baby is effortless.

Choose baby clothes in the right size

Babies grow fast, so it's always a good idea to look for outfits that allow for a bit of growing room. As a rule of thumb, you should choose one size ahead of your little one s actual age. Most 6-month-old babies can be quite comfortable in clothes designed for 9 to 12 months.

  • For accurate sizing, take weight and length measurements and compare them with charts provided by baby clothes manufacturers.
  • Babies grow at different rates, so don t assume that what worked for your first baby will work for a sibling.
  • Sizes differ from one brand to another, so have a look at sizing charts for every item.

Buying the right clothes for the season

With babies growing so fast, it's advisable to get clothes for only the coming months. For example, if your little one is 9 months old in December and you want to buy something for the following winter season, go for clothes for 18 to 24 months.

  • Buy only small amounts of clothing, especially for newborn babies, because they will outgrow them quickly and you may not be able to anticipate exactly what size he or she will be in a year.
  • Avoid clothes that aren't appropriate for the season by opting for loose items made of cotton for summer and warm fabrics for winter so your baby is comfortable every day.

Look for clothes that are easy to change

Changing the baby s diaper many times a day may be challenging, so opt for items that make your life easier. Clothing such as baby overalls may look cute, but they're quite complicated to work around when it comes to changing a diaper.

  • Choose pants with stretchy elastic to make diaper changing a simple task.
  • Baby onesies and bodysuits come with snaps between the legs and down front, making it simple to change diapers every day.
  • Clothing with loose legs and a wide head opening is perfect for parents who want to simplify diaper changing.

Choosing the right fabric for baby clothes

All new babies and toddlers have sensitive skin, and as such it's essential to look for soft fabrics that make them feel comfortable throughout the day. You may opt for all-cotton baby clothing, or go for soft cotton blends.

  • Organic fabrics are the softest you can usually find, albeit with a higher price tag.
  • If you re looking for durability, 100 percent corduroy is a good choice for rompers and overalls.
  • Fleece works great for various types of accessories for the colder days, such as blankets, mittens, caps and bibs.

Tips for buying baby and toddler shoes

Babies don t need any shoes before they start walking, and experts believe that hard-soled shoes may hinder your little one s mobility. In the cold seasons, things such as booties and socks do a good job at protecting little feet from low temperatures.

  • When it s time for real shoes, look for breathable and lightweight materials such as cloth and soft leather for extra comfort.
  • Check every month to see if there's enough wiggle room for your little one s feet because they grow so fast.
  • Soles should not be smooth, but have grip instead to offer good traction.
  • Look for shoes with bendable soles that give little shoes extra flexibility.

Keeping your baby safe

Baby clothes are safe to use, but there are some considerations to take into account during the first years of life.

  • Watch for any dangling threads on your little one s outfit, as they could entangle little fingers.
  • Wash all clothes before your child wears them for the first time.
