Nor should you forget that usually friends and family often give a lot of clothes when the baby is born and is usually of these sizes.

So that this does not happen, before leaving shopping you have to consider the measures and the approximate weight with which the baby will be born to have an idea, and buy clothes of an approximate size.

Clothing should be easy to put on and take off. Babies are very upset by all the clothes that have to be put on their heads. The best thing is to bother them as little as possible, your baby just wants you to let him sleep and rest, and not be the “cuqui” of the park.

For greater comfort, the most indicated are the garments with buttons or clasps from top to bottom, they can be behind or in front of the garment, in this way it will not be necessary to put on or take off the clothes for the baby’s head.

There are some pajamas or pants that have brooches in the crotch that allow you to change the diaper. And there are also bodies, shirts, and pajamas that are crossed, those are the best.

Everything that has closures, big appliques, very finite elastics, strips or laces should be avoided because they can bother or scrape the baby.

An important fact about the clothes that the newborn baby will use is the type of fabric, those garments that are in direct contact with the skin of the newborn must be 100% cotton, that is, they do not have to have any synthetic fibers.

Currently, there are many clothing chains, which sell this type of garments with the name of “bio cotton” and are the best. And you should always avoid wool, especially if you lose hair because the baby could inhale it and have respiratory problems.

Another way to avoid allergies is to wash this clothes by hand with neutral or white soap, even with the soap of a lifetime that our grandmothers made with recycled oil.
