Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

When it comes to clothing your baby there is so much to choose from, you will see a wide variety in the stores from practical to designer wear. It is also very easy to get carried away with what looks cute and stylish, spending a small fortune very quickly.

The main thing to keep in mind when buying for a new baby is that, whilst small, babies can not control their temperatures, they do not shiver for example, so it is imperative that you make sure the clothing you buy keeps them neither too hot or cold.

The other problem is, no matter how hard you try, a baby needs their clothes changed alarmingly often as they bring up feeds or diapers leak! With this in mind choose practical clothing for everyday use which will stand up to frequent washing. Also be aware that the fabrics in some baby clothes can irritate delicate skin, fashionable clothes made from synthetic materials will be an irritant to your baby, choose natural fibers which are gentle on sensitive skin. Another benefit with natural fibers is air can circulate allowing your child's skin to breathe maintaining a healthy temperature. Remember babies lose heat through their heads, you may need a good selection of hats in cooler weather, as well as sun hats for protection on hot days.

It is easy to get carried away buying lovely clothes for special occasions but remember babies grow very fast and you may simply not get any wear out of such purchases. The rate of growth is such that baby clothes can add up to be an expensive outlay. Constantly in need of updating so try to budget sensibly. You may find second hand or used baby clothes a good solution, many are in excellent condition as babies rarely are in them for long. Accepting hand downs from friends and relatives is also advisable, you will be amazed at the savings you can make by doing this.

Another major decision you have is regarding Diapers, you have two options here re useable or disposable. Your decision may be influenced by finance or convenience, even by a desire to help the environment. The truth is disposable diapers are more convenient but will cost you more, most are not bio degradable and are a major environmental concern. They are time saving and this may simply be the only option for your family.

Re useable diapers are a lot cheaper but will require a lot more of your time. They are more environmentally friendly, although the energy you use washing regularly also has an impact. Another potential issue is some washing detergents do cause rashes and you may find yourself struggling to find one suitable for your baby's skin. Even baby specific mild detergents cause reactions in some babies, not only with wearing re useable diapers but with clothes and bedding too

If your child does react it may be a case of having to use disposable diapers, even though you may not wish to as babys health has to come first. Disposable diapers are convenient especially when travelling and on vacation..
