4 Things You Need To Know About Baby Clothes

This article is sponsored by Persil Non-Bio & Comfort Pure.

When you're a new parent, or an expectant parent, any little bit of time-saving advice you can get is appreciated. There's so much to take in that it can all be a little overwhelming from time to time, so those little nuggets you pick up along the way from friends, family and online too, are worth their weight in gold! If it means you may avoid a parenting disaster further down the line, you'll be glad you took the few minutes to listen or read!

Here are 4 little nuggets you need to know about your baby's clothes: (Don't forget, when washing baby’s clothes for the first time, wash them separately from the rest of the family’s, and use a non-bio detergent that will be delicate on newborn skin, such as Persil Non-Bio. To make the clothes soft, use a delicately fragranced fabric conditioner which is kind to skin, such as Comfort Pure.)

1. Those Envelope Folds On A Baby's Vest Are There For A Reason

It may not be obvious, but those folds are actually there so that you can take your baby's vest off downwards. This is especially important in times where there has been a nappy explosion. The last thing you want to be doing is trying to take that thing off over baby's head. Ew!

2. Scratch Mittens Are Not Necessary

They may be cute, but they also can be pricey and get lost so easily. Use a pair of newborn socks instead! Cheaper, and it doesn't matter if you lose them because you'll have plenty of socks to replace them with.

3.You Don't Really Need To Wash Dribbled On Clothes

Well, at least not every single time. You'd be in and out to the washing machine a trillion times a day if you changed and washed baby's clothes every time they dribbled. Change baby out of the dribbled on clothes so they don't get dribble rash, then drape the damp clothes over the radiator/in front of the fire/on the line etc. Once dry, you can use again. Now, obviously, if it's more that just dribble on the clothes, like puke/spit up or food, then they need to go into the washing machine. We're talking strictly watery dribble here.

4. Don't Lose Little Bits & Bobs In The Wash

Tiny baby socks, hair bands, bows - they all need to be washed, but can be a nightmare to keep track of! Use a mesh bag to keep them all together so you're not forever searching for that missing sock or bow. Simply pop them all into the bag, and throw the bag straight in the machine with the rest of your laundry.
