I was at the birth of my niece and I was almost as excited as her mum. She asked me to attend as my brother in law was abroad and would not be able to get back in time. The birth itself was a mind blowing experience and just moments after she was born, I got to hold her.
Of course, every new baby needs clothes and as I love shopping, I volunteered for this job. It doesn’t matter whether I am shopping for clothes, household goods or other people. I love shopping. I mean, could any women resist the chance to buy clothes for a new born baby in their family?
While shopping, it is important to remember to not just buy clothes based on appearance. The clothes must also be comfortable, otherwise baby will be restless. Many designers pay great attention to how they design the babies clothes and which material they use. This all goes towards making baby happy. The clothes that are likely to make a baby feel uncomfortable are the ones that are mass machine produced with no thought about the design. I also searched the suppliers online to find ones that paid attention to their designers.
Soya bean fibres are just one of the ways that designers are experimenting to find the best way to keep baby happy. In case you haven’t come across this, it is a by-product of tofu and soya milk production. This material is durable but it is also extremely soft on the skin. I discovered this type of fibre, when buying baby rompers.
Have you also heard of clothes made from bamboo? It may sound strange, but don’t think about Bamboo in its pure form. The type of bamboo used to make clothes is a by-product which has been treated to bring out the softness. While searching the web, I also come across a designer that produced clothing that was comfortable, fun and stylish.
I think denim always looks cute on babies and it is incredibly durable and comfortable. I think we all know that though as so many of us are still living in jeans when we are adults. Denim jeans are actually great when babies start crawling. Practical for baby and stops mum from tearing her hair out.
I’m not such a purist about modern eco-friendly innovations that I shun all traditional fabrics. So for my new niece, I bought some wonderful romper suits. I know tiny babies have no idea what they look like, but the positive attention they get when they look so irresistibly cute can only be good for them. If baby is wearing clothes that are comfortable and look great, mum will also feel pleased as well. And it’s always nice to make heads turn in appreciation, whether you are six months old or sixty years!
