Criteria Used for Evaluation
As always, we research many, many items and sift down until we have our list. The baby clothes were so cute and fun to "shop" for. We’ve found some adorable and exciting choices for you in both girls' and boys' lines. The best choices, in our opinion, are at the top of the list. We chose clothes that will be soft, pliable, easy on the diaper changes, and comfortably non-scratchy.
A very large group of people believe that organic food is the way to go as far as your diet is concerned. But along with food, there is also a trend in the area of organic baby clothing made from the organic fibers of cotton. If not trending toward organic, then the trend is moving toward natural fibers like cotton and wool rather than synthetics. Synthetics are made with plastics and other petrochemical-derived materials.
There are no synthetic chemicals sprayed onto organically grown cotton to get rid of insect pests. The result ends up being beautifully soft cotton clothing that has little to no residue left in the fabric to irritate a baby’s soft and sensitive skin. And if you watch the sales, you can get some organic budget items.
If you are already eating organic, going to organic baby clothes can help you feel a bit more consistent with your choices. Our skin absorbs chemicals, minerals, oils, and basically whatever it comes in contact with. We have lotions that contain magnesium to be absorbed through the skin, for example. And babies have thin skin as it is not fully layered yet, so they can absorb more of the chemicals and even sunlight than do adults.
The choice, of course, is yours, but nice, soft organic clothes could be a great addition to yourbaby’s wardrobe. One or two layette groupings would probably really fill that wardrobe out for the first couple of months. Remember that babies outgrow their clothes somewhat faster than they wear them out.
Ease of Use
We know parenting keeps you busy. We also know that accidents happen and diaper changes need to be quick. With those thoughts in mind, we wanted the clothes on our list to be easy on and easy off so diaper changes can be stress-free. Also, spending less time trying to dress your baby gives you more time to play with them. Furthermore, we also made sure the clothes on this list are easy to clean.
Clothing for babies is needed to keep them safe from the elements and comfortable as much as possible. So for the first 6 months, your baby’s arms and legs should be protected from the rays of the sun by long sleeves and pants. Put sunscreen lightly on the exposed skin. And the baby should wear a hat to protect the face. If your baby gets too hot, he will tell you by fussing or getting red and hot. Take him out of the sun or remove a layer of clothing.
In the cold weather, dress baby in layers instead of one heavy piece of clothing. Several layers insulate better than just one. And that way if your babe gets too warm you can just remove a layer. Start with the number of layers you are wearing and then add an extra layer for warmth. Easy peasy. Add a coat or a blanket and maybe a hat, and you’re done. You may be going in and out from cold weather to a heated space, so keeping your baby comfortable is up to you. You’ll do great.
Other Factors to Consider
For the safety of your baby, choose clothes that have no decorations, or at least decorations that are sewn tightly onto the fabric. When changing your baby’s clothes, don’t block their airway. When dressing baby in shirts, get the ones that can roll down from the neck, like the Gerber Onesies. This helps them breathe and keeps a baby from panicking. Clothes made from natural fibers and that are snug fitting are the most flame-resistant. Loose fitting clothes tend to get caught up in flames more quickly.
Frequently Asked Questions
q: How can I make sure my baby’s clothes are safe?
While there is nothing out there that is foolproof, there are things you can do to minimize the possibility. Don’t buy any piece of clothing with ties or that has decorations that aren’t securely sewn on. Buy pieces that have a slightly enlarged neck so that your baby’s head can fit through easily while changing so that you don’t cut off his airway. And choose outfits that close with snaps or zippers, not buttons, which can be swallowed.
q: What about fire-retardant pajamas?
There is a bit of a controversy over this issue because of the fire-retardant chemicals used on these sleepers. The chemicals may be cancer-causing, which is a concern because our kids spend so much time in pajamas, and those chemicals can leach through the skin.
Even without these chemicals, the synthetic pjs are made from petrochemical materials. Still not good. Best bet: pjs can be safer if they are made of cotton or wool, which are natural fibers. Fit them snugly so that any flames will be less likely to reach the clothes than if they were loose.
q: My baby is big for his age range. How do I know clothes will fit?
When in doubt, shop by your baby’s weight whenever possible. If a company doesn’t have sizes listed by weight, ask them if they have such a list. Some companies list their clothes by height or length along with age. Other than that, you might just have to try the clothes on or buy a bit larger size so he can grow into them.
q: I’m a busy mom with my babies. How can I make dressing my baby a little faster?
Choose clothing that helps you. Instead of just cute, choose cute and functional. Or just functional. Snaps and zippers should be in front rather than the back. The neck opening should be a little larger so that a shirt will just slide over your baby’s head instead of fighting with you. Choose sleeves that are loose, not tight. Pick pants that have snaps in the crotch area so you don’t have to completely undress your baby to change a diaper. Choose wisely and you should have an easier time.
q: How can I get flame retardant out of my kids’ Christmas pjs?
First, check the label to make sure the pajamas are treated. Most will be in the US. To get rid it, wash it, adding twice the amount of fabric softener to the wash. If you want something a little more "green"-friendly, try soaking it in an acidic solution like white vinegar or lemon juice in water. Make sure it is diluted well. Another solution is to buy t-shirts and sweatpants to wear to bed instead of pjs.
q: Should I wash baby clothes before putting them on my baby?
Yes. Use hot water that will kill any germs that may be left after other people have handled the clothing. Use the detergent that is free of fragrances.
