Baby Clothes Buying Guide for Dads

Looking after young child involves managing a variety of tasks; one of the more pleasurable among these is buying baby clothes. However, shopping for children's clothes requires careful thought. While selecting baby clothes, always check whether they are:

  • Functional: Obviously, looks will play a big role in the baby clothes you pick up. However, always keep practicalities in mind too. Select baby clothes that are easy to put on and take off. This is especially important in young children who will require frequent diaper changing. As a dad, beware of pants and outfits that require a lot of snaps and buttons. Moms have patience for these added nuisances. Dads will often just leave them undone because no one will notice anyway.

  • Comfortable: Numerous fashionable accessories may make your child look adorable. However, in the wrong places, they may be uncomfortable, and could even hurt your child. While picking up baby clothes consider how buttons, ribbons, and other attachments might irritate your baby and avoid buying these.

  • Weather-appropriate: Keep seasonal conditions in mind while buying your baby's clothes. There is no point smothering your baby in woolens during hot weather, or buying skimpy dresses for winter wear. In areas with wide variations in temperature, moms spend a lot of time organizing baby clothes inventory around the growth of the baby and the approaching season.

  • Alterable: Young children outgrow their clothes very quickly. This means that you may have to routinely discard perfectly good baby clothes that have hardly been worn. Instead, it may be better to buy baby clothes that are a little bigger, or can be easily altered, so that they can last your child a little longer. This is a practical solution and will save you time, effort, and money.

  • Organic clothes: The organic trend of recent years has influenced the baby clothing industry as well. Organic cotton is grown differently from the cotton used for the manufacturing of most of the clothes we wear, since there are no pesticides and other dangerous chemicals involved in the growing of the cotton. The chemicals usually used in cotton production go into our air, water and soil, damaging the environment we live in. Organic baby clothing companies use certified cotton, that meets the basic standards of organizations such as the Organic Trade Association.

I was looking at clothes on your site and noticed that you don't have trust seals visible anywhere (please excuse me if Ive missed them).

As a consumer, I look for trust seals and third party verification from Trust-Guard or other companies like Hacker Safe, Truste or the Better Business Bureau.

People in the forums and others I talk to all recommend looking for trust seals when shopping online. We need to know that shopping on your site is safe. Who knows, it may even help increase your sales.

Please let me know when you update your site.

Thanks,

Shannon Tuke
