Convenience, newborn clothing advice on what to buy

Baby clothes, given the rapidity with which children tend to grow, with regard to clothing for babies it is useful to use the sets of onesie or the famous layettes, which contain more than one garment of different sizes and materials, to cover the first months of the newborn.

Be careful. We would like to clarify that practicality in newborn clothing is also linked to the simplicity and safety of your child . If you have doubts about the origin of the baby clothes, make sure they are produced in Italy, so you can be sure of compliance with the production rules.

Also make sure that the baby clothes you buy do not have buckles, laces, buttons that are too small, dangerous if they are swallowed. Also all the accessories that make some models pretty are to be avoided if they are made with materials that are too rigid and that could accidentally scratch the baby: skirts, turtleneck sweaters, synthetic tights, lace garments and so on.

You can indulge yourself when the child is older and dress him in fashion, with jeans and a shirt. Now the baby must not have uncomfortable clothing, but must feel protected and free to move. So we recommend simple baby rompers, with openings in the crotch of the pants and bodysuits with a fairly wide neck; in general, always prefer snap buttons.
