what to look for when buying baby clothes

Baby clothing refers to clothing suitable for infants under one year old. Almost every mother who goes to the mother and baby store and sees the cute little clothes for the baby will fall in love with it and can't help but want to buy two. However, due to the imperfect thermoregulation function of the baby, the skin is delicate, the resistance is weak, and the activities are more at the same time, sweating more, and the sebaceous glands secrete more chance.

1. Look at the label

For baby clothes produced by regular manufacturers, some basic information of the clothes will be marked in detail: such as fabric composition and content, commodity implementation standards, care labels, product safety categories and manufacturer information. Through the label, we can have a preliminary judgment on the baby's clothing.

Special attention is: Infants and young children under the age of 3 must be marked with Infant Products (Class A), and must be marked with no dry cleaning or with a circular pattern with a cross. (The Class A standard for infant clothing requires that the formaldehyde content be less than or equal to 20mg)

2. Look at the fabric

Through the label, we can know what the fabric of the baby's clothes is, and the baby's clothes are first pure cotton fabrics. Babies have tender skin and are prone to allergies. Therefore, when choosing baby clothes, it is best to choose pure cotton. Even if the cotton content is more than 95%, it is pure cotton. skin.

Do not choose chemical fiber products, such as polyester, acrylic, etc., which have poor air permeability and are easy to irritate the baby's skin and cause allergies. In addition, some functional fabrics, such as waterproof, sunscreen, iron-free, etc., may be added with toxic and harmful substances such as antimony and perfluorinated compounds in the production of fabrics, and should also be carefully selected according to actual needs.

3. Look at the color

It is best to choose light-colored and less printed clothes for baby clothes. Because of the darker and brighter children's clothing, more dyes and auxiliaries are used in the printing and dyeing process. When worn close to the body, it may cause skin allergies and discomfort to the baby; in addition, dark clothes are easy to fade, and the baby likes to bite the clothes. , It is easy to eat the dye into the stomach, which is not good for health.

4. Look at the details

Check whether the workmanship of the clothes is meticulous, there are not many threads, and whether the edges are smooth. Generally, the labels and sewing surfaces on baby clothes are on the outside of the clothes, and the side that is worn close to the body is relatively smooth.

The clothes of the newborn baby can be selected with laces, and there are as few decorations as possible on the clothes, or no clothes. It is best to choose clothes without buttons to prevent the baby from accidentally eating it.

If an older baby chooses a button with a button, you must pay attention to the firmness of the button, because the baby likes to grasp the button and the like, and make sure that the baby can wear it if it cannot be pulled off.

If the printed pattern on the surface of the baby's clothing has a certain thickness on the fabric, and it feels a little sticky, it may be that the clothing has used paint containing plasticizers (phthalates) during the printing process, and it is best not to buy it.

5. Smell

When buying baby clothes, be sure to smell them close to the nose to see if there are any irritating odors on the clothes, such as musty smell, gasoline and kerosene smell, fishy smell, etc. If there is, it may be chemicals added in the clothing production process. Substance residues cause formaldehyde and PH value to exceed the standard. This kind of baby clothes must be purchased with caution.

When buying baby clothes, be sure to buy different sizes according to the baby's fat and thinness. Don't buy too tight. The clothes must be larger than the babys’. It is best that there is no elastic band around the waist to avoid strangling the baby and affecting the normal activities of the baby and the normal development of internal organs. In addition, it is best to wash the newly bought clothes at home, and then dry them in the sun before putting them on the baby to ensure that they are clean and safe.
