You may think that all the small children are alike. But only the outsiders can think in this way. There are some differences in the clothes, suitable for baby girls and baby boys.
As a rule, the newborn boys are larger than the girls.
When you’re going to the maternity home, take the clothes of a little bigger size, if you’re expecting a boy.
Both overheating and overcooling of boy’s lower region is undesirable. That’s why it is necessary to choose quite loose clothing for the newborn boys. It must be warm, but the child must not perspire in it. Whatever way of your child’s dressing you choose, there must be an air space between the clothes and the child’s body. If the baby wears loose clothes, they ensure its free movement, which in its turn protects it from overheating and overcooling. It is unadvisable to put too many clothes on your baby. The overheating is unhealthy both for the newborns and for the elder kids. Perhaps, you should dress the child in something warm when you return home from the maternity home. But at home, the child can wear only the crawlers and baby’s undershirt.
The fashionable baby boy’s wear must be made of a light airy material. It is better to choose the natural materials- cotton, flax or wool. The easier and faster the clothes are put on, the more comfortable they are for you and your baby. If you buy a romper suit, see to it that the child feels free in it, even if he wears a diaper. Some romper suits have the special cut of leg seams, making the child’s movements easier.
Now it is accepted to dress the boys in blue, and the girls- in pink. But more than a century ago it was the other way round: pink was considered brighter and more manly than blue. At that time, the newborn boys wore pink. If you have doubts about the color of the clothes you should buy, choose white. The sellers of children’s wear often recommend the parents who are not quite clear about the sex of their child, to buy white clothes. Another advantage of white is that this color is very smart, hygienic (although too easily soiled). And if you’re crazy about the combination of shades, it’s much easier to match the white clothes for color.
The first thing you should take into account choosing the clothes for your baby is its comfort and convenience!
