5 Must-have Essentials for Baby

The arrival of a baby is always a special and joyous occasion for not just the parents, but the larger family as a whole. The arrival of a new life is celebrated with gifts, cards, and accessories. However, choosing baby clothes is one of the most important tasks for your little ones. This is primarily because their sensitive skin can get irritated quickly and easily, making them prone to cloth reactions. Secondly, their body functions are still developing, making it difficult for them to regulate their body temperature.

Hence, it becomes crucial for baby clothes to be able to protect against temperature variations.  Choosing the right fabric and clothes for your baby is critical to their health, especially in the first few months.

The Right Fabric for Babies

There are tons of baby clothes from multiple brands that are available around us. They come in different shapes, sizes, colours and materials, with each of those brands trying hard to impress new parents that their product is the best suited for babies.  However, traditional handcrafted products are the most suitable choice for these babies. Special care has to be taken to ensure the right fabric. Here are some of the most recommended fabric types for babies:

Cotton: It is the most popular choice for baby apparel. Organic cotton is particularly soft, highly absorbent, and safest, considering they are grown and processed without toxins or chemicals.

Bamboo Rayon: It is the perfect material for babies' swaddles, blankets, hats, quilts, etc. In addition to being a purely organic material, the most significant attribute of Bamboo Rayon is that it is an excellent thermal regulator, which means it adjusts itself to the child’s temperature.

Gauze: It is rightly called the perfect baby fabric. Also called muslin in many ready-made garments, gauze is light, breathable, and airy, making it a fantastic choice for your little ones. It comes in two forms. The single-gauze comprises only one layer of gauze, and the popular double-gauze comprises two layers of gauze at regular intervals.  The Japanese double gauze is in great demand worldwide for its ultra-softness and opacity.
