Many big brands make baby clothes and it’s not surprising with many parents following in the footsteps of celebrities to keep their children ‘looking cool’. That’s a bit of an issue, though, if we’re already showing the importance of big brands at such a young age, all we’re doing is drumming this into them so they want more when they grow up. Spoiling children as babies and focusing on big brands can mean you’re doing the opposite to what you should. Some parents argue that this is the time in their life where they don’t need to wear clothes that look cool. They need to be comfortable and happy, and a baby really isn’t going to care whether he or she is wearing Nike trainers or unbranded sneakers. You also have to keep in mind that they can grow out of a pair of shoes in days, so really, should we be spending as much as we do on big brands? Let us know your thoughts.

If you’re a parent you’ll know just how important baby mittens can be. Babies nails come through very early on so they can do damage to their skin as soon as their born. To prevent them from scratching and injuring themselves, baby mittens can be worn and these can prevent many common problems, such as conjunctivitis. With baby mittens, you can buy them in a range of styles and colours so they can actually complement the babies outfit should you wish to. Whatever colour you decide on, make sure the fabric is soft and thick enough to prevent the sharpness of their nail from coming through. They should be worn when they’re asleep and when they’re out with you in the day, especially during the first few weeks and they really are a godsend gift for new parents.
Not every parent wants their newborn baby to be dressed in bright colours. Some people are lovers of simple blacks, whites and greys – so shades compared to colours. If this is you, then you’ve probably found that it can be very difficult to buy grey baby clothes in high street shops. The best way to stock up on grey bottoms, tops and jumpers is by having a browse online. There are many great websites out there and you can even use Google to search specifically for grey coloured baby clothes. We love grey because it’s a colour that goes with anything, just like black and white, and it doesn’t have the tackiness that baby blue or bright pink does. Of course, when your child begins to grow up they will have their own ideas about the colours they should be wearing, so be sure not to force a particular colour on them throughout their younger years.
You won’t often see a newly born baby wearing sneakers, socks or slippers, and that’s because shoes are not comfortable for them at such a young age and they can actually prevent circulation, which is very important during the first few weeks of their lives. As they mature into older babies beyond the 2-month mark you can try them in soft footwear likes socks and shoes but you should always make sure there’s plenty of room in there for their feet to breathe. Babies grow at a rapid speed and it’s important to make sure they are taken out of the shoes as soon as they start to get a bit tight. You can spend hundreds of pounds on shoes, which go to waste days or weeks later and that is why many parents put babies in onesies, as these include areas for their feet and they’re very breathable too.
Many babies are dressed in expensive brands, and we’re not just talking about celebrity children. You can buy Nike trainers, Doc Marten Boots, Adidas Tracksuits and Ralph Lauren shirts for babies just a few weeks old, but is this just a bit silly. Many parents will see it as a complete waste of money; after all they’re likely to grow out of the clothes several weeks or months later. A baby isn’t going to care whether he’s wearing something from a charity shop or something fresh out of a well-known store, so why do parents feel the need to dress their children like this? Well, if they’re brand orientated, they’re going to dress their baby this way, and if they have the money to do so, there’s nothing wrong with it.
