When it comes to buying kids and baby tees, the market is saturated with styles and brands. Most parents want their baby's clothes to be comfortable enough in all aspects, but finding quality tees for your newborn or toddler can be a daunting task.
If you’re thinking of baby gift ideas, then baby tees are a great option. To make it more enjoyable when buying baby clothes, we have listed important factors to consider.
Factors to consider when buying kids and baby tees
If you are unsure about what to look out for when buying kids and baby tees, then here are some factors to consider:
Style: If you're conscious about your child looking good, you'll want them in the latest fashion of kids' tees. And if you love the comfort and simplicity of a cotton tee, then that may define your style. The best thing about kids clothes is they come in so many types to suit your taste. You can find cute baby tops with sayings, animal prints, or plain baby t-shirts that are perfect for both boys and girls. Whatever your preference is- there are plenty of options to choose from any age group.
Size: Make sure the clothing size corresponds to how old or big it fits them properly. Most kid tees have a size range in the description, and if it doesn't have one, you can typically tell by looking at the measurements.
Brand: It may be tempting to choose a more well-known brand just because that's what everyone knows about. But there are a ton of less popular brands making quality clothes too.
Patterns: If your family has a particular style of wardrobe that is consistent in colour and pattern, then try choosing an item with similar colours or patterns to match the rest of their clothes.
Price: Check for what you want in your budget before purchasing anything so that you don't end up spending more than intended on something less expensive, or vice versa.
Fit: it's worth checking the sizing charts to ensure you get a size that fits your baby. You should also consider what might fit them in six months or even two years. You'll need clothes that are larger than they currently wear for when they start walking and growing taller.
Fabric: You want something lightweight and breathable in the summer and warm enough in the winter. You could opt for 100% cotton for the best shirts. They are more absorbent, soft, and breathable than other fabrics.
Shape: From a round neck, V-neck, crew cut, or button-up shirt, the shape will depend on your preference and the baby's size.
Sewing: You want the stitching to be strong and durable. Also, look out for shirts with seams on the inside of the garment, not along the edges where your baby's skin rubs against them and causes chafing or irritation.
How to care for kids and baby tees
It's important to wash your kids and baby tees right after buying them because they contain residual chemicals from the shop, which can irritate the baby's skin.
While on it, refer to the care label on your baby tee for specific laundering instructions. For a general guideline, wash with cold water in similar colours and use an eco-friendly detergent free of harsh chemicals or additives. Also, do not bleach them because it could make your clothes fade fast.
If you have access to a clothesline, place the clothes directly under the sun to kill germs and prevent bacteria from breeding. If not possible, use a clothes dryer (with low heat) to decrease shrinkage.
You can also iron kids and baby tees, but be sure to use a low heat setting and use a spray to prevent any scorching.
When storing your children wear, hang them up inside out on hangers or keep them flatly folded with other like-coloured clothes so that they can maintain their form over time.
