Form And Function For Your Baby

by Ariel Hooker

While you might be tempted to think that babies couldn’t care less about what they happen to be wearing, this is not actually the case. Baby clothes are not all created equal, and the knowledgeable and friendly staff at Shreveport’s Ladies In Waiting can help you select the ones that are right for you, your budget, and your new family member. Here are a few things to consider.

Fabric:  It should go without saying that babies love soft, warm clothes that keep them dry and comfortable. The types of fabric used in baby clothes should be soft and warm, but also breathable, allowing your child’s skin access to fresh air without trapping moisture. If your baby has any allergies or becomes irritated by certain fabrics, it could limit your selection.

Accessibility:  Dressing, undressing, and changing diapers are all things that can either be helped or hindered by your choice in baby clothes. While some designs allow for easy on and off and diaper access, other baby clothes are not so well thought-out. This may seem like something more for the parents, but your baby doesn’t want to struggle with their clothing any more than you do. Good baby clothes make for happy babies and parents!

Style:  The style of clothing in which you dress your baby may not seem like a big deal, but it does influence the way others perceive them, which could have long term consequences. This topic has been explored further in another blog.
