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.

1. Jeans

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.


jean leggings

Instead, try Jean Leggings. They are much softer and have an elastic band that keeps the pants from sliding down.

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.

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.

baby shorts

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.
