Check the inner seam of the clothes. They should be smooth, not rough, and lie flat rather than sticking together. Don’t buy clothes that have tight elastic bands on the arms, legs, neck or waist; They can irritate your baby‘s skin and prevent blood circulation. Ignore what may cause itching – the metal should not be plated, the applique, the buckle is rough or uneven. If a patch is made of thermally welded plastic, check the rough edges on the back. Pull the buttons or locks to make sure they can’t easily fall off, causing choking if your baby swallows them. But don’t pull so hard that you loosen the part that connects them to your clothes. And please check again after you wash the clothes
Clothing labels must contain information about fiber and instructions for use. All cotton may look big when new, but then they will shrink 10% after washing many times. Polyester blended cotton is less expensive than pure cotton or organic cotton, and less wrinkled or shrinking. Avoid thin, semi-transparent details or unfinished garments such as un-trimmed lace. Although your baby grows fast, but you also need enough durable clothes for months. Some guidelines on dyes and fabrics:
– Soft and breathable natural fabrics such as cotton are comfortable and if you want to fit your body, they are a good choice to synthesize and make anti-fire coat (usually made with polyester). Avoid ribbons, ropes, bows and other decorative items that can wrap around your baby to suffocate.
– Printed colors without Azo – must be free from radioactivity when exposed to your baby’s sweat and saliva.
– No formaldehyde with harmful agents
– No pliers to avoid baby skin allergies
For everyday wear, think about comfortable and easy to wear types. Soft, spacious, and durable types allow children to move freely, explore and wash often. (dirt and dust on clothes)
