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.

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.

Sleeping

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.
