Many babies dislike being changed and they will cry and cry as though you were trying to hurt them. The only solution in this situation is to make the changing process as fast and efficient as possible. Not all baby clothes are the same and it is possible to make changing clothes much faster and pain free by simply choosing clothes which have been designed with a quick change in mind.
Below are a few examples of baby clothes that can help you change your baby because of their easy access design.
1 - Kimono Jacket – The Kimono style jacket is very stylish but also very practical. In contrast with tops that have narrow openings, tight necks and a few buttons the kimono style is designed to open extra wide. This way your child can be easily lifted out of the clothes for a super quick, super easy and stress-free change.
2 - Trousers with fitted socks – A baby’s socks never seem to stay in place, they are always falling off all over the place and finding them can feel like a treasure hunt. When you think about it, there is one obvious solution to this problem. Why not buy trousers with the socks built in? This is a great solution to an age-old problem and has the added benefit of keeping your baby warm as they are 100% draft free.
3 - Bodysuits – Not all bodysuits are made equal. The best design for a quick change is to have an envelope neck and popper crotch. The envelope neck makes it extra easy when changing from one body suit to another while the popper crotch gives easy access to your baby’s nappy when you smell that all too familiar smell. These advantages make this style of bodysuit a must have for all parents with a new born child.
4 – Bibs - Bibs don’t help you when changing your child directly but they have a useful role to play in your daily routine. We all know that babies have a tendency to drool and of course they really can’t help that. A bib provides protection for the clothes that the baby is currently wearing. All parents would agree that it is far easier to simply remove the bib and replace it with a new one than replace an entire outfit. It may not help directly in the changing process but it might help save a few changes during the day. An easy win for all parents.
5 - Hats – Hats may not help with changing but they have been added to this list because they are super cute and also essential to your baby’s health. A baby should wear a hat when they are out and about.
A good rule of thumb for judging whether or not your baby needs a hat is to check the weather ahead of time and notice whether or not you feel cold when you step outside. "If you feel cold, it is very likely that your baby will feel cold too.
A baby’s head accounts for a large percentage of there body surface area. In fact, it is estimated that the top of the head makes up around 10 percent of a baby’s entire body. Therefore, hats are an essential part of any baby’s wardrobe, without a hat a baby could lose 7-10% of their body heat while out and about.
As an added note. When buying clothes for your baby you have to make sure the quality is high and the materials are soft as a baby’s skin is very sensitive. This is one of the many reasons why we recommend Pima Cotton. This is a very rare type of cotton that you won’t find in any old high street store. This is because they choose the cheaper cottons to keep the price low but cheaper cottons are not necessarily the best cottons for your child’s skin.
Pima cotton is a naturally occurring cotton, hand-picked and the softest cotton available on the market today. The clever thing with Pima cotton is that it is not only soft and durable but breathable too. It will help to regulate your baby’s body temperature by keeping them warm in winter and cool in summer, keeping them content whatever the weather.
We recommend that you try Pima cotton to experience these wonderful qualities and always remember that one quick change a day means less tears and less stress. Happy baby, happy Parent!
