Our favorite time of the year is just around the corner. After all the Christmas decorations and preparations for the Christmas party, maybe it’s time to consider what outfit to get for the youngest member of the family. Check out our suggestions.
There are lots of cute Christmas outfits on the racks of baby clothes that will draw your attention. However, to make your final decision, you will need to consider safety, comfort and practicality.
It is a good idea to avoid buttons, bows and ties. These things could present a choking hazard. You should also avoid Christmas outfits that pull tightly around the arms, legs or neck of your baby, since these may also be unsafe. Make sure the decorations on the Christmas outfit are sewed on tight.
When shopping for a Christmas outfit for your baby, you should choose according to the weight of the newborn, not the age. You will see weight listed along with the age on many Christmas baby outfits. This is a better measure than age.
It is a good idea to consider Christmas outfits that are easily put on and taken off. It can be a bit of a struggle to dress a wiggling newborn. Keep in mind that wide necks or snaps at the neck make dressing easier. And if you pick Christmas outfits that pull over the head, make sure you do that quickly, because babies usually panic, when their breathing is blocked. Also, snaps and zippers in the front are normally easier to put on and take off than those on the back. You may also choose loose sleeves over tight ones. Snaps or other openings at the crotch make it quicker and easier to change diapers. This way you don’t have to take off all your baby’s clothes.
Make sure you and your baby feel comfortable and have fun at the Christmas party.
