How to Buy Newborn Baby Clothing for a Friend

If you have a friend that is about to have a baby or has just had a baby you are likely planning to buy her a baby gift, and newborn baby clothing is always a great choice.  New parents often buy clothing for their baby before it is born but they sometimes do not realize how much of the practical clothing they are likely to go through.  Buying the staples that they will go through a lot of will be a useful gift.

The first thing you should think about is the colors of clothing that you want to buy.  Typically, boy clothing comes in greens and blues and girls usually wear yellows and pinks.  What if you do not know the gender of the baby though?  Blue is a color that both boys and girls can wear but it is best to keep it as a secondary color – new parents do not like it when their girls are confused for boys because they are all dressed in blue!  There are other colors that are more gender neutral though like orange, mint green, white, and red.  You can also combine colors in patterns like stars or stripes.

Christmas Morning !There are two types of baby clothing that new parents typically go through a lot of and may not have bought enough of.  There are onesies and sleepers.  Onesies are like little shirts that button up between the legs for easy diaper changes.  Many infants wear these all throughout the day if they are not going outside the house and many parents put them on underneath other clothing as a kind of undershirt, especially if they live in a colder climate.  They can be simple or they can be fancy and fun with patterns and designs on them.  Sleepers are full outfits that cover the baby from neck to toe.  They are called sleepers because they are typically for sleeping but many parents keep their babies in sleepers all the time.  Sleepers should have easy to undo button on the legs and at the crotch of the sleeper and there should be buttons up the front as well. Buttons are generally better than zippers because they wash better and are less likely to break.

Baby clothes can make a perfect gift for a new baby.  They can be fun or functional or both.  There are many colors and patterns to choose from and your friend can have lots of fun dressing her baby in different kinds of clothes.
