Find dressing & styling your baby a difficult task? That’s why we will gave you 3 essential tips to follow when thinking about dress a baby.
1. Buy basics in bulk
For basic items like vests, onesies and socks, buy them in a neutral color and buy in multi-packs. Until the age of 2, and probably beyond, you’ll go through these so rapidly each day. Especially in the early days of constant poo-namis and spit-ups.
I wouldn’t recommend spending a fortune on these kinds of basic items because you’ll end up losing so many! They’re pretty much always hidden under other clothing anyway so as long as they’re cotton, they don't need to be expensive or fussy.
2. Keep it simple
When your baby has unleashed a poop'nado and you’re crammed into a baby changing room, you want to get them changed and be out of there as fast as possible. You do not want to be fussing around with too many buttons, bows, and layers, regardless of how pretty they might look.
We’d recommend keeping outfits with numerous layers for special occasions only. In the first 3 months, stick with onesies or two pieces where you can easily change a nappy without having to entirely undress your squirming mini.
3. Go for front fasteners
Do not be tempted to buy anything that fastens at the back before the baby can sit up unassisted. Whilst ‘tummy time’ is essential for the baby’s physical development, testing it while getting them dressed isn’t the best idea and will result in tears and stress for all!
Go for buttons or zips that fasten on the front or under the bum so your baby can lie on their back and gaze at you while you’re doing them up.
