There are a lot of things I derive joy from doing and I can tell you that shopping for clothes for my 6 month old son tops the list. Am I the only one who can’t get over how cute baby clothes are!! It hurts though because they grow up so fast and out grow every single piece. It takes a lot of will power to stop myself from loading the cart when shopping for my little munchkin.
This is my third child (hopefully last – LOL) and I can say that while shopping for him no matter how cute the outfit is I have to put safety and comfort first. Certain things should be taken into consideration like tiny buttons, hooks, snaps and appliques. I advice a routine check on the clothes and fasteners for loose items to avoid choking hazards.
Avoid loosely knitted clothes , sweaters , booties that might trap a baby’s fingers or toes, cut all dangling threads before your baby wears a garment or socks . When picking shoes it was recommended that the shoes of choice be flexible as it helps develop the foot’s arch and also shoes with traction on the bottom so your baby won’t slip easily.
