Choosing baby clothes is something that is at once fun and cute, but at the same time somewhat stressful and can be nerve racking. You will of course want to make sure that the clothes are comfortable, and if you're new to buying for a baby it can be hard to know what's appropriate or how to choose the clothes. At the same time if you are buying as a gift then it can be even harder buying for someone else's child.
If you find yourself buying baby clothes then and unsure of precisely what to buy, how do you go about choosing them and making sure that they're appropriate and fit well? Here we will look at some ideas to help you pick baby clothes for girls.
Size: First of all you need to know roughly the baby's size. If you are the parent then you will know the size and weight of your baby, and as they grow older you will know to simply progressively buy larger and larger clothes. Buying clothes as a gift for someone else's child however is more difficult and fraught with difficulty. The solution is to either ask the parents yourself and get the size precisely right or to make an educated guess. You can base this guess on age and you should know the age of the baby which will enable you to choose clothes roughly the right fit. Failing that though it's always safer to err on the larger side. If you aren't completely sure then buy big and you will have helped the parents out. The simple reason? Babies of course grow at an exponential rate, and this means that anything that fits them now will likely be too small within months. Buy clothes that are too big then, and soon enough they are going to be just the right size.
Appearance: You should also choose baby clothes that are going to look good on the child, and by that we really mean 'cute'. A parent loves dressing their child up in clothes and making them into a 'little person' and by buying them cute clothes for their baby you can help them to do so (of course if it's your child then you can buy them anything you like!). Popular ideas are clothes with the baby's name on them, or with a funny image. For girls think of girl-ish colors and this will help people to identify the sex and avoid embarrassment.
Comfort: Perhaps most important is the comfort of the baby, and it's very important that the clothes fit well, be soft, and not itch, rub or scratch for the baby. Choosing comfortable clothes normally is just a matter of finding clothes that are very soft and that won't be too hot, but also making sure they fit well and that the baby isn't allergic to any of the materials.
Resilience: Baby clothes will go through a lot and will be washed a lot of times during their short life span, so be sure to pick clothes that can stand up to this punishment.
