When my daughter was born, I began to actively go to children’s shops and buy her things. I focused on household things, because at first we walked a little.
I often had confusion – what is what, and I had to explain to the salesmen what I need on my fingers. Of course, today I can distinguish the body from the sandbox, but it did not come right away.
My clothing classification
For myself, I identified the following types of clothing for infants. This is – blouses, undershirts, sandpits, body, overalls, sliders, pants, tights. With blouses, undershirts, pants and tights everything is immediately clear. But with the body, sandboxes, overalls and sliders, I initially confused.
It turned out that the body is a combined version of panties and undershirts. Sandboxes are almost the same, but come as a summer version and combine shorts and a jersey. Overalls, or as it is fashionable to say, slips – this is a combined version of the blouse and pants, and handles with legs they have, as a rule, closed. Although there are models with open legs.
But the sliders, or as I now call them, bib overalls, are pants that fasten on the shoulders. Here, too, there are two options – with open and closed legs.
Naturally, at first I did not know what was best to buy. For me, the main requirements for clothing were quality and comfort. As a result, I bought one of each item.
I will not talk about our first month of life – then we wore only vests, pants and diapers. But since two months, when the daughter became active, we began to dress up.
Of course, for us, overalls, which with closed legs, turned out to be very convenient – the baby can be quickly dressed, undressed, changed diapers. They have comfortable fasteners along the whole body, which makes life easier for mommy. But with the open legs, we did not like overalls – they constantly climbed up, and she constantly took off the socks that I wore on my legs.
I combined blouses with pants, tights and sliders. But when the child is actively crawling, the blouse is constantly bullying, even under the sliders. Therefore, this option also did not become popular with us.
Between the sandboxes and the body we chose the latter, because it is very cold at home, even when it is hot outside. I really like to wear a body along with tights or sliders – nothing flies, it does not crawl out even with the most active child’s frills. By the way, I again take the sliders with closed legs, so that nothing gets up, and socks do not roll around the house.
As a result, our most popular home kit has become a set of body, tights or sliders. Of course, now the daughter is growing and we are buying beautiful dresses. But we dress up in them only when we go out on people. At home, comfort and convenience are important to us. And we made our choice!
