First Year Baby Clothing

First Year Baby ClothingFirst year clothing for babies is usually sized as newborn, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, and 12 months. Most of babies never need newborn sizes and they start with 3 months clothes, so you will probably start with buying 3 months clothes, but always keep in mind that babies grow very quickly, so always have the next size ready.
When buying clothes for everyday wear, think comfort and ease of use. Choose soft, durable and roomy clothing that allows your baby freedom to move and explore. Recently many parents prefer organic baby clothing, but they are more expensive.  But whatever you choose, use a gentle, baby-friendly detergent to wash them to avoid skin irritation.

Here is the basic baby clothing for your baby. (5 to 7 piece every 3 months)

One piece baby clothing
One-piece outfits: They are very convenient to use for sleeping and playing. Look for one piece outfits that zip or snap down the front and down the leg which will allow you to change her clothes easily without pulling things over her head which is very irritating for babies. Always think about diaper changes, so buy clothes that open easily.

Shirts: Look for t-shirts with wide neck, so they slip easily over your baby’s head.

Leggings: Separate clothes allow you to change one piece of dirty clothing, so they’re very handy to have.

Sweaters, jackets: Sweaters, sweatshirts, and jackets, are very useful too. Buy larger sizes and ones that have hoods which are great in cold weather.
Avoid items that have strings and ribbons which pose choking hazards.

Hats: A sun hat for the summer and a warm hat that covers her ears in the winter will make the life easier fort the baby.

Socks or booties: You will need lots of socks and some booties for outdoor wear, so get enough.

Shoes: Babies do not need shoes till they start walking and not recommended by doctors so booties with thick, nonskid bottom will be enough.

Sleepers and Pajamas: You will use them fort he bed time so think about your baby’s comfort, his safety, and dirty diapers. Do not buy sleepwear that has complicated snaps or difficult to get on or off!
Buy clothes that are soft, made by breathable natural fabrics like cotton. Again, avoid ribbons, strings, decorative buttons and ties that could pose a choking hazard.
