Baby Clothing Is Big Business

By: Rubel Zaman

One thing you can count on is the fact your newborn baby will soon outgrow their entire wardrobe and require more! Babies need diapers, nightgowns, pajamas (with the feet in them please), blankets, undershirts, socks, booties, mittens, bonnets, romper suits, and some sort of bag to tote about all their belongings when you take them out. They require softness, resilience, and warmth in their wardrobe and you, the parent, must insure they are comfortable at all times. Buying all this and more can be a trying task but parents can usually count on help from friends and relatives, often at the baby shower that is thrown for mom at her place of work or a relative’s home. Gifting of all that a baby requires is well appreciated because quite often the expenses involved with a newborn can be overwhelming to any budget.

Parents soon learn what works best for baby clothing Sizing in infant attire is similar to size selection in older children and adults. You can measure the child’s chest size, neck size, length of arms and legs, and even go by their weight but in many cases you will be wrong! The key is to purchase one size larger then seems best then simply allow the child to grow into it! This will work but in the meantime you must find apparel for him or her to wear right now! First of all the newborn baby is so tiny it seems as if everything is way too big! Babies grow quite rapidly, and you must plan ahead because what is perhaps overly large right now will not be in a very few weeks. Sizing begins with newborn and remembers they grow like weeds!

1. Newborn/Small or age 0 to three months is generally for babies weighing from six to perhaps twelve pounds and about 18” to 23” in length.

2. Medium Size or Three to six months is for babies about twelve to eighteen pounds and 23” to 25” in length

3. Large or Six to Nine Months will be about 19 to 21 pounds and 25” to 27” in length

4. Extra Large is for babies nine to twelve months of age weighing 21 to 23 pounds and 27” to 29” in length.

The sizes above should be considered a general guideline only because each manufacturer will have their own measurements they go by. Generally the “major” brands will be consistent and do go by those measurements. Beyond the age of approximately one year sizing will be best determined by the child’s weight and height. Buying your baby clothing in a local store is to be preferred if there is any doubt as to the proper size but purchasing over the internet is increasingly popular, perhaps even more affordable than conventional local shopping. And don’t forget to look for sites that offer free shipping for even more savings.

Environmentally friendly clothing is available for baby and adults those of us who are environmentally conscious and choose to help keep our planet green consider it beneficial to buy items that will preserve our environment. Items made from bamboo are particularly Mother Nature approved and make excellent clothing for baby to wear. Bamboo clothing has become increasingly popular for all ages and in particular for baby clothing because of its unique softness and resilience to wear.
