Choosing Baby Clothes for a British Holiday

As everybody knows, Britain is a country blessed with dramatic landscapes and dramatic weather. Because of this, extra consideration is needed when choosing which baby clothing will keep your little one adequately safe and happy on a British family holiday.

Before you go

If you are taking a very young baby on holiday then you will need to take at least three changes of baby clothes a day (if not more) to cope with all the inevitable dribbles and accidents that will happen. It can also be handy to have plenty of disposable bibs in your luggage just in case there are no normal ones available.

Good weather days

Take at least two or three swimming outfits (with UV protection) to make the most of those days when the sun does decide to shine and going for a paddle in the sea or a swim in the pool is possible. A good quality sunhat should also be worn to provide extra protection.

Bad weather days

A waterproof all-in-one can often be a good idea when the heavens open and the rain sets in for a few days. All-in-ones with fleece linings can provide extra warmth, while overbooties can also help to keep your baby’s feet dry. Naturally, the best way of dealing with inclement weather is to stay inside as much as possible.

If you want high-quality baby clothing and baby shoes at unbelievably low prices then spend some time with us here at Universal Textiles.

Choosing Baby Clothes for Holidays in the Sun

Going away on a sunshine holiday with your baby can be a very exciting time for all concerned. However, packing the right baby clothes is essential to ensuring your little one enjoys their holiday as much as you do.

UV protection

When travelling to sunny climes with a very young child, buying UV protection baby clothing is essential if you think you will be spending quite a bit of time outside. It can also be wise to take several sun hats for your baby so that you will always have a spare to replace any that go missing.

Covering up

Cotton and linen clothes with long sleeves, as well as long trouser leg lengths (or dress lengths), can help to keep your baby comfortably covered if you absolutely have to go out at the hottest times of the day. Clothes with long sleeves/leg lengths can also help to provide protection from insect bites in the evening too.


Body suits and cotton short-sleeved tops can be useful at bedtime as they can help to keep your baby nice and cool. However, if your holiday accommodation has air-conditioning then you may need to have a few sleepsuits at hand to ensure your baby doesn’t feel the chill quite so much. Although air-conditioning can be beneficial for adults, it can be quite uncomfortable for very small children.

Whether you need sun hats or baby sandals, Universal Textiles is a one-stop shop for all your baby clothing needs.

Considerations When Buying Baby Clothes

Buying clothes for a baby can be a bit more difficult than many people think. Below are a few things that need to be considered when buying baby clothing:

Newborn-three months

When buying clothes for a very young baby, safety should be your chief concern. When selecting clothes, examine them closely to see if there are any buttons, ribbons, or snaps which could be pulled off and so represent a possible choking hazard. Baby clothes which have velcro and zips on the back can be very handy at this age.

Six-nine months

Buying lots and lots of clothes for newborn babies is quite unnecessary because they grow so fast. However, when a baby reaches 6-9 months they grow a little slower, so you can indulge your inner-shopper and buy lots of baby clothing. Buying babies of this age clothing which in a size too big can be beneficial as they will have plenty of room to grow.

12-24 months

This is the period in a child‘s life when they start to play, have tantrums and undress themselves. When buying clothing for children of 12 -24 months, it can be very helpful to choose durable clothes. Having clothing that can be easily undone but which won’t rip can help to stop a child of this age getting irritated and throwing tantrums.

The perfect time to invest in thermal underwear

The memories of summer are fading fast as winter takes an increasingly firm grip on the UK and its inhabitants. You may be mourning the loss of the warmer weather and find yourself struggling to cope with the colder conditions.

Indeed, getting up in the morning can be a nightmare as you are immediately confronted by the cold and dark, and stepping out of your front door to set off to work can present an equally unpleasant shock.

However, there are ways in which you can lessen your suffering and investing in thermal underwear is one of these. As well as stocking a wide range of baby booties and other baby clothes, here at Universal Textiles we also sell a variety of underwear that helps keep you warm.

Taking advantage of such garments can make all the difference and you may turn up at the office much less worse for wear than you have in the past. And because the products are good value for money, there is no need to break the bank in order to get hold of them.

Indeed, if you browse what we have to offer, you may well be surprised by how little cash you will have to part with in order to buy the products. Of course, there are other ways in which you can help keep yourself and your baby warm over the winter.

Investing in a good coat and warm baby shoes is important for keeping your child warm, and having a hot bath every now and then can raise body temperature as well.

Buy baby clothes online to avoid festive chaos

The UK is currently experiencing one of its busiest times of the year for shopping and the chaos in shops and on high streets across the nation is likely to get worse before it gets better.

Parents desperately hunting down presents and baby for their children at the last minute, panic stricken men and women trying to find something thoughtful for their other halves and people stocking up their fridges and freezers as though they were expecting a global catastrophe all contribute to the frenetic scenes.

And when you factor in the nightmare of parking, the often bare shelves and the threat of icy wind and rain, the whole experience of hitting the high street can seem like a nightmare. Also, not only are you likely to come away feeling stressed, but you may also be empty handed. Retailers might simply not have what you are after or may have sold out.

In order to avoid such problems, it can help to use the web to source items. Whether you are seeking cheap baby clothes, baby booties, baby dresses or any other such product, you may benefit from heading online rather than climbing into your car.

This way, you do not have to contend with crazed consumers or with inclement weather conditions. And as well as being easier, this method of shopping can be cheaper as online retailers benefit from cost savings which they are able to pass on to consumers. Also, the selection of baby clothes and baby shoes in many cases is greater over the internet.

If you want baby clothing gifts, look no further

If you know someone who has recently given birth or is about to, you may well be looking for presents to hand over in honour of the new arrival.

A perfect present for mums can be baby clothes. After all, youngsters go through their clothing quickly due to the rate at which they grow, and it can be tricky for parents to get out to the shops often enough to keep up.

This means that you can get more for your money, which is not only great news for you, but also for the recipients of your gifts. You may choose to use the money you save on our great value products to purchase other items to go alongside them. This could really help the new mum and dad, as they can never have too many items of baby clothing for their child, and you could even buy clothing for different age stages, providing the parents with a head start for coming months.

Not only is sourcing goods from us inexpensive, but it is also convenient. You don’t have to spend an age trawling around shops seeking what you want. Rather, you can just browse the contents of our site, make an order and then wait for the items you chose to arrive at your door.
