When I was pregnant, it seemed to me that the clothes I buy at the store for the future newborn would be very useful to me. At the same time, I seemed to be reading clever tips and watching the correct instructional videos. But it turned out that I didn’t have what I needed.
Convenience and functionality
What I am glad about is that I didn’t pick up mountains of unnecessary clothes. What I regret – I didn’t stock up on the most comfortable clothes before the baby was born.
Everyone advised me to proceed from the fact that it would be convenient for mother and baby, so in my case, everything was determined by experience.
What did I need diapers for?
– To calm the baby (up to three months is the method recommended by foreign pediatricians);
– To lay somewhere where you want to put the baby – for example, on the scales in the clinic;
– To cover up the baby in the summer.
Wearing diapers instead of clothes did not work. The child in a dream got out of them in all possible ways. Option – on the top of the vest, the legs in the diaper also did not pass, despite all the tricks.
Men are called fused jumpsuits for kids, on buttons or zippers (rare). For very small ones there are sleeping bags – they have no separate legs, so there is less trouble with them. (A child who turns over is already uncomfortable in this.)
I love overalls – they can be worn at any time of the year. Velor in the cold, from thin knitwear – in spring and summer. Such little men are also convenient to wear from September to May under the outerwear.
They take up little space on the dryer, unlike diapers. Men will protect you from bullying T-shirts and pants removed with dangling legs, from searching for lost tiny socks and a number of other problems.
Body and sandboxes
In the hot season, my son rolled out for a walk only in one such T-shirt, fastened between the legs. When it’s really hot outside, you don’t even need socks. If the walk was planned in a cool park nearby – the set was changed to a sandbox with a T-shirt, and I also added thin socks.
I also really like children’s tights, but the blouses that I wear on top, still straightened out of them. So my son plays and crawls in all the same little men.
Clothes like adults
But I need tights when I dress them under these tiny jeans and trousers. I have a pair of shirts and sweaters so that you can wear a crumb for a holiday or for a visit. It is very beautiful, but to wear a fidgety baby in such clothes is not an easy task. But you want to dress your baby as best as possible 🙂
