Shopping for a baby and a small child is completely different from shopping for an adult.
With kids the 3 important things to look for:
- Practicality-it this item serves the purpose and is easy to use.
- Longevity-can I easily wash and maintain this item for a long period of time.
- Comfortable-is your child comfortable wearing the clothes.
Jeans are usually too tight and tend to slide down when the child is moving. They are also often too rigid and limit child movement.
Instead, try Jean Leggings. They are much softer and have an elastic band that keeps the pants from sliding down.
2. Fluffy Dress
Fluffy dresses are truly reserved for special occasions, such as weddings-those dresses are super uncomfortable, itchy and impossible to wash
Dresses that they can wear anywhere not just their birthdays, comfortable and easy to wash.
3. Turtle Neck
Turtle Necks or anything too tight around the neck. It is impossible to put on and it is extremely uncomfortable around child sensitive skin.
Wear scarf if it is windy or you feel you need to cover the neck.
5. 2 Piece Bikinis for Babies
They are only cute on pictures. They often fall off and there is no point exposing so much sensitive skin on a baby when you don’t need to.
If you want 2 piece bathing suit buy the long sleeve version that way you will need less sunscreen and there is less chance of a sunburn.
6. Matching Outfits
Matching Mom & daughter outfits becomes a problem once a second sibling comes along. Plus kids grow up so fast you will be only able to use it just a few times.
Try similar styles of clothes but the matching outfits are only cute in Instagram photos, not real life. You can buy similar colour scheme or styles if you want to have a similar look.
10. Baby Shorts
Short pants are not good for kids as they expose too much skin. Kids tend to fall a-lot and scratch those knees.
Knee-length is a much better alternative once your child starts walking to save those knees from scratches.
