Baby clothes make a great gift

Bath Clothing available at Universal-Textiles.com

The arrival of a newborn baby into the world is a joyful occasion and one that merits celebration. So, when someone you know has a child, you no doubt want to express your congratulations by handing over a gift.

These days, there are many options when it comes to offerings of this kind. There is everything from teddies for youngsters to champagne for parents. However, one of the most popular and best forms of present remains baby clothes. After all, tots need a lot of garments in their early months.

Meanwhile, these items can be a great help to weary mums and dads, who often find it difficult to cope with the dramatic changes to their routines. For them, getting out and about to the shops can be tricky with a new infant in tow. So, having baby booties, baby clothing and other such things bought for them can be a huge help.

Also, becoming a parent is not cheap, and so any practical assistance they can get is bound to be welcomed.

The great thing is that thanks to firms such as us here at Universal Textiles, it has never been cheaper or easier to source baby clothes. We pride ourselves on providing excellent products at great value prices and, by coming to us, you should have no problem in finding the perfect items well within your budget.

Our special gift sets can be the ideal present to give to friends, family members, colleagues and other such people when they start a family.

Comfy baby clothing is crucial for summer

Baby Summer Clothing available at Universal Textiles

These days, there is a vast array of baby clothes on the market, which is great news for parents and consumers in general as it means they should never be stuck for choice.

Of course, when it comes to baby clothing, aesthetics are important. Every doting mum and dad wants their tots to be clad in garments that show them off at their cutest. However, comfort is also vital. After all, if their clothes are not comfortable, they will suffer and this is the last thing anyone wants.

This is never more true than during the summer. Already the mercury in thermometers around the country is rising and sun cream sales are increasing. While adults know what to expect during the warmer months, infants do not have the same insight and experience.

Often, they can become overheated and irritable. However, it is possible to make them feel more at ease. By investing in cool and light baby clothes that do not restrict their movements, parents can reduce the risk that they will become disgruntled.

Here at Universal Textiles we stock a considerable range of items that are perfect for hot conditions, as well as more substantial items designed for cooler periods.

Of course, as well as buying baby booties and garments that are appropriate for summer, it is also important that parents are careful and do not expose their youngsters to too much sun. At this stage of their lives, they are extremely sensitive and an overdose of UV rays can be very damaging.

Summer Baby Clothes

Children who are born in the summer months really need very little in the way of baby clothes to begin with. The main things which need to be considered when thinking about summer baby clothing are whether fabrics are soft and breathable enough, and whether designs offer ease of access to make tasks such as nappy changing easier.

Newborn babies often have a propensity to move their limbs quite enthusiastically as they are still not entirely in control of their own movements. It normally takes a few weeks for this to subside, so you need to make sure any clothes you buy at this stage allow a good degree of movement. Nappy changing is also going to be a frequent necessity around this time so buying baby clothing like bodysuits and sleepsuits can help to speed up this enviable task with their easy access poppers.

Newborn babies’ sleep patterns can often be erratic in the summer months, as they are new to the world and of course aren’t used to the concept of fluctuating temperatures. Although sleepsuits are fine to use when summer nights are a little cooler, a bodysuit in conjunction with a light sheet can often be a better choice for the season. You may also want to invest in a number of sleeveless vest cardigans and sweatpants in soft, breathable fabrics to help deal with extended periods of warm weather.

For everything from baby booties to sleep suits, browse our great range here at Universal Textiles.

Occasion Wear: Best Baby Shoes

If there’s one thing we love about babies, it’s their adorable little fingers and toes (and when they have the good manners to sleep quietly through Top Gear). Choosing the best baby shoes for your baby’s delicate little feet needn’t be much of a chore, particularly if you think of these few important points while browsing our online collection of baby booties, baby sandals and baby shoes.

It’s all about balance

Without balance, we can’t walk. When taking their first steps, babies need to practice their balance skills. Many babies do this by pulling themselves up to a standing position using the couch, your hands, the dog’s tail, etc. It’s important to make sure their baby shoes acclimatise them for the best possible balance. Your baby will probably have learned a few balancing skills barefoot anyway, which makes the importance of baby shoes that fit properly a matter of physical development as well as comfort.

Be prepared to get limited use

If you’re investing in occasion wear baby shoes, be prepared for the fact they may not fit in another three to six months. Babies’ feet are very sensitive, so never force a shoe onto their little feet, even if it’s just for the duration of a wedding ceremony.

We do our best to keep prices as low as possible, and with some of our bestselling occasion wear baby shoes selling for less that £5, we think you’ll agree we’re doing a pretty good job of it. Browse our website today and see the cheap baby clothes we can offer.

Sleeping Like an Angel: The Best Baby Wear

Babies spend a massive amount of time sleeping; gurgling away in their happy little dreamland of kittens, giant bottles of tasty milk and snugly blankets. Choosing the best baby wear for your child is terrifically important, as simple considerations like style and fabric can have a massive effect on how well your baby slumbers.


Short or long sleeves? Baby booties or not? If your baby is having trouble sleeping, it could be something as simple as them not being comfortable in their babygro. Before panicking and assuming the next few years of sleep will be fractured beyond repair, try a few different styles of baby sleep suits.

Sleep suits should be loose enough to allow free movement (it’s important baby’s growth is not restricted in any way) whilst keeping your baby’s delicate skin covered and protected from scratches or chills.


Many babies suffer from infant allergies, which is why we make sure our ranges of anti-allergy baby clothing products stay cheap and cheerful through the entire year. Most babies sleep easier in 100% cotton, but don’t worry about it costing the earth. Cheap baby clothes like our online ranges are designed with baby’s comfort and your wallet in mind.


Babies grow incredibly quickly, making the expansion of their wardrobe an ongoing consideration. We know you want cheap baby clothing if possible, which is why we do our best to keep prices down, particularly in terms of everyday baby clothes and sleepwear.

Don’t forget Your Nearest and Dearest Back Home

The modern world seems to be getting smaller and smaller. There was a time when it took six weeks’ sailing to reach Australia’s west coast, whereas we can now journey Down Under in less than a day (or, to put it another way, about seven in-flight movies). With so many people venturing far and wide around the globe, remembering those back home takes on increasing importance.

Celebrating the birth, birthday, first tooth, first world, or any of the big milestones in the life of a baby is easier than you might think when you’re 4000 miles away, mulling over which 4×4 to bounce around the Australian outback in.

Similarly, if you’re back in the UK missing a celebration in any of our delivery destinations, we can take care of it. We deliver to more than thirty-five international destinations, including the USA, Canada, Australia and Hong Kong.
