Are you welcoming your new bundle of joy anytime soon? If you’re a first-time parent, one of the things that you can do before your child arrives is to prepare his clothing essentials. One item of clothing that should be present in all baby wardrobes is the baby bodysuit.
The problem that all new parents face is not knowing what to buy exactly and where to start while shopping for baby essentials. Your list can include a bunch of items like kimono tops, beanie hats, baby socks, sleepers, baby leggings, rompers, bloomers, baby sunglasses and baby bodysuits. But to help you narrow down your selections, you can start by getting some comfy baby bodysuits, as it’s already a whole outfit. Before you start shopping for baby bodysuits, read this article to get a better understanding of them. This will help you choose the right options when you purchase.
When the baby is young, clothing priorities are very different. They poop and pee every now and then and changing the nappies can be a major part of infant life. But for you, the parent, the right types of baby clothing choices can really make a difference.
Baby bodysuits are commonly described as T-shirts that go beyond the waist, which fastens with snaps or closures between the legs. Infant bodysuits, which are also called onesies, are made to cover the diaper. The poppers over the crotch function for your convenience, so that you can easily change nappies with ease. A baby bodysuit is basically a soft and comfy piece of clothing that covers the newborn’s body. These are also used as sleepwear, which is made fitted yet with a snug style that makes your little one feel warm and relaxed.
Unlike a bodysuit which is best suited for babies, rompers can be worn by both babies and toddlers. The major difference is that rompers also have legs. But don't think about pants when you read legs because all of it is in one piece. So, you can think of a romper as similar to a jumpsuit; in this case, the feet are also covered. Similar to baby bodysuits, a romper also has buttons at the bottom that make it easy to change diapers without undressing the kid. Rompers are great for cold climates as they provide coverage and warmth.
One question that parents often have in their mind is till how old it is appropriate to cloth your kid in onesies. Because at one-point toddlers will start looking weird walking around wearing only a bodysuit. So, exact what age is it? To answer this question, you should also consider the purpose of wearing onesies as well. To be honest, bodysuits aren't the easiest clothes to wear. But the one-time effort that you put into putting on a bodysuit is worth it because changing the diaper is really easy with a bodysuit. In that aspect, you can stop using them when you no longer have to change nappies as often. That happens between 12 months and 24 months of age.
Unlike buying clothes for older kids, shopping for baby clothes demands a lot of attention from the parent's side. Baby clothes should not have anything on it that can come off, like flimsy bows and buttons and flowers. If anything were to come off while you are not near the baby, he would try putting it in the mouth. Make sure that the clothes have nothing on it that is a strangulation hazard like extra bands around the neck or waist. Keep things like pleats, and tulle to the minimum. Yes, this means that the baby clothes will look less fancy than otherwise. But safety is always more of a concern than design.
