It can be astonishing to pick the best and appropriate clothes for your baby, knowing that there are many brands, styles, and fabrics of baby clothes that are out in the market.

You probably seek advice from almost all people close to you and find yourself overloaded with information.

To avoid confusion, listed below are the most important considerations in buying baby wardrobes.


Imagining a cute baby joining your family is exciting. Your initial reaction would be wanting to dress up your precious baby. Parents fancy their babies wearing trendy, funky, bright, and even expensive outfits to compliment all their cuteness.

Yet, these are when the price comes. Babies start to get rashes and skin irritations. And most of the time, the reason is the clothes’ fabric.

Babies have susceptible skin, so when buying babies’ clothing, most parents defer to picking out pieces made from cotton. But there are sustainable alternatives like soy-based fabrics. They are also silky smooth, so clothes made from these fabrics are gentle on babies.

It is highly recommended that you buy baby wardrobes made from natural resources like organic cotton, rayon from bamboo, and azlon from soy. They have good properties making them a good fit for baby wardrobes.

Avoid bright-coloured fabrics as they may be made with fluorescent agents. Likewise, it would be best to avoid polyester and nylon-made clothes for babies because they can cause discomfort to the babies.


Safety is an essential factor in buying clothes for your babies. Unfortunately, the parents and families may sometimes overlook this.

Keep in mind not to buy clothes with decorations like buttons, bows, flowers, hooks, etc., as they can cause choking.  The right size is not only comfortable but will also let the baby move freely. Babies’ growth is amazingly fast, so make sure you consider them.


Make sure you buy your baby pieces that fit right. The right size is not only comfortable but will also let the baby move freely. Babies’ growth is amazingly fast, so make sure you consider their growth rate when purchasing.

Clothes must also be easy to put on and take off and fits well even when babies are in diapers. Avoid fanciness and be practical.

Style and Functionality

Put functionality above beauty. Don’t buy the pieces just because they are beautiful and will look cute on your babies. Always put comfort on top of your checklist when purchasing baby clothes.

Be practical and don’t overbuy party outfits or costumes that they will hardly wear. One or two sets are enough. Also, limit the number of newborn baby clothes that you will buy since, as mentioned, they grow fast.

As a practical parent, make sure to buy comfortable clothes that will wash easily and last through many laundries.

But, take note: practicality is not equal to frugality. Do not compromise comfort and safety for the price of your babies’ clothing. Do not default on the lowest-priced clothes. Always choose quality over quantity.

Make sure to plan and choose meticulously. Don’t overlook even a single thing from this list so you won’t end up regretting the money you lost and the comfort and safety of your baby.
