5 Kiddie clothing tips
When buying children’s clothes, it’s all about quality. Cotton is still the most popular material because it is the least likely to contain harmful substances.
Wash before they wear. Thus, you can exclude any residue of substances prone to irritate sensitive skin. Plus, it makes clothes smell nice!
Even if you think that you know your child’s size, be careful. Different manufacturers, different measurements. It may sound easy, but it’s difficult to judge sizes without your child present. To be sure, ask about the store’s returns policy when at the till. Garments bought online can usually be sent back within a two-week period.
If you are unsure about the size, always buy clothes which are slightly larger. Even if the child cannot wear clothes now, at a later stage, these will certainly be appropriate for him!
Give them some freedom to choose their own clothing, within reason. You could compromise: Sis can have the ridiculous slip-ons complete with pom-poms, but then she needs to choose a sensible jumper.
