Finding The Right Baby Wear For Your Newborn

Having a baby can be one of the most wonderful times that anyone can hope to experience. However, it can also be an incredibly stressful time, and things can often get overlooked. Don’t let baby wear be one of them.

It’s a good idea to start shopping for baby wear before the child is born, as that way you can be sure that you’ve got everything that you need. To find the right clothes you need to make sure that the comfort is up to scratch – newborns have incredibly soft and delicate skin that can easily become irritated, so make sure that any baby clothes you buy use materials that are as soft and natural as possible.

You should also consider the sex of the baby (if it’s known when you start shopping). It’s always nice to go for pinks for girls and blues for boys, and you can start buying dresses or short sets as appropriate. If you’re waiting until the big day you could always stick to things like yellow or white baby sleepsuits, as that way they can suit both girls and boys.

Don’t forget things like towels, robes, blankets and shawls as well, and use the same rule as you would for clothes – they need to be as cosy, soft and comfortable as possible. Make sure you’ve got booties and gloves on hand as well to make sure your baby stays warm and comfy.

So, finding the right baby wear for your newborn needs a lot of consideration. You need to choose the right materials and colours but you also need to make sure that nothing is overlooked, so always come to us here at Universal Textiles where we’ve got everything you could possibly need.

Buying Baby Bibs on a Budget

Unfortunately, budgets are a fact of life for many of us. Having a baby can be an expensive business which makes budgets even more important, but luckily you can find plenty of baby bibs without breaking the bank – always a good way to protect those lovely baby clothes from the worst at feeding time.

Baby bibs get dirty incredibly quickly, so you don’t want to spend a fortune on them. Luckily most bibs are made out of washable materials that don’t cost the earth, so even if they’ve got past their best they can be replaced without too much of an issue.

But what about plastic bibs? They last longer and are completely re-usable no matter how dirty they get, but unfortunately they have price tags to match their convenience. They’re not the most environmentally friendly options either, so for a lot of people material bibs are the only way to go.

There are plenty of places you can go to find material baby bibs too, and if you’re on a budget you can’t get better than coming to us here at Universal Textiles. We have a great selection of baby bibs to choose from all at fantastic prices, and we don’t skimp on quality either so you can be sure that you’re getting the best.

As you can see, it’s perfectly possible to buy baby bibs on a budget. As long as you stick to material options you’ll have no need to worry, and can look forward to years of feeds without having to blow the budget. So, make sure you come to us here at Universal Textiles and see just what you can get for your money.

Choosing The Perfect Baby Dresses For Your Baby

Baby girls love to wear baby dresses almost as much as parents like buying them. They’re cool, comfortable and adorable, and luckily there are plenty of options to choose from. But just how can you choose the perfect baby dresses for your baby?

A lot of the time, it comes down to comfort. As long as the materials are soft and warm yet breathable you’ll be able to give your baby the ultimate in comfort, which means a better experience for them but also for you as you don’t have to worry about your baby being unhappy.

Of course, we all want our children to look good, so the pattern or style of dress will be an important consideration too. No-one would choose something old, drab and boring for their baby, so always go for dresses with fun designs and patterns as, after all, being a child is all about having fun.

Remember that a lot of baby dresses come with bottoms as well, and this can provide added warmth during the winter months and can even be used for convenience – to cover up the nappy and to make sure that everything is where it should be. Don’t forget christening dresses either, which can be used for both girls and boys and are an essential consideration for a lot of people.

So, choosing the right baby dresses often comes down to the materials, the design and the style, and if you take proper care you can be sure that you’ve made the right decision. However, a lot of the time it comes down to budget as well, so if you want a great selection of baby clothes at fantastic prices make sure to come to us here at Universal Textiles.
