When finding costumes for children, parents often focus on the eye-catching appearance such as decorative details, colorful colors, etc. but forget the safety factor. This article will point out 05 types of clothes that parents should not buy to limit the negative impact on the baby’s health.


Usually, parents tend to shop for clothes that are eye-catching and decorated with details such as beads, metal, etc. However, using these products can cause dangerous conditions for the baby such as: 

– Your baby may choke on these decorative details if he/she accidentally swallows them. Or it is dangerous that your baby puts them in the ears, mouth, or nose because of curiosity. 

– Some cheap products have details manufactured from compounds being harmful to our health. For example, the urea-formaldehyde resin is found in beads and beads.

Awkward accessories on clothes are a danger to children


In the production process, many textile factories utilize formaldehyde as a chemical agent to eradicate mold and bacteria from fabrics. And if manufacturers use a lot of these compounds, you will feel an extremely unpleasant smell emanating from the clothes. 

According to the Ministry of Health, direct contact with formaldehyde compounds will cause your skin to experience conditions such as dermatitis, allergies, and even skin necrosis. In addition, in 1981, several studies also proved that this compound could cause cancer in humans. 

If you choose products that still contain formaldehyde and the washing process does not remove this compound, it can directly affect the health of our children. In particular, the baby’s skin structure is still quite vulnerable and sensitive, so it is more susceptible to being affected by the above chemical compound, which aggravates skin irritation.  


To create costumes being colorful, eye-catching, and have good color stability with low production costs, not only Vietnamese businesses but also many major fashion brands in the world are using Azo dyes (potentially carcinogenic chemicals) in manufacturing. 

Some Azo dyes decompose during use and release aromatic amines, which are easily absorbed when in contact with the skin (especially when the body has sweat), cause damage to human DNA, and causes cancers in human, particularly bladder and liver cancer. Besides, some research has also shown that they are linked to breast cancer. 

Clothes are things that are in contact with skin 24/7, especially with children’s delicate and sensitive skin that is very susceptible to being affected by toxic agents on clothes. In case of long-term exposure, harmful chemicals will seriously affect child health. When choosing clothes for your child, don’t just focus on the look of the outfit; find clothes achieving safety certifications to ensure that the outfit is safe and won’t harm your child.

Clothes made from wool or felt will be the first choice when mothers choose winter clothes for their children. Although this material keeps warm very well, it often has small wool fibers that make your baby feel uncomfortable when wearing it. Especially for newborns, whose skin is 5 times more sensitive than adults.

In addition, children may inhale these small wool fibers, causing respiratory diseases. Therefore, advice for mothers is to prioritize clothes made of elastic or felt materials, avoid wool and felt materials when choosing winter clothes for children.


Children often have higher body temperatures than adults. They sweat very easily even if the weather is not too hot. This is also a note when mothers choose clothing materials for newborn babies.

Clothes woven from chemical fibers have poor sweat absorption. Children are susceptible to rashes, itching and skin diseases. This makes children uncomfortable. Advice for mothers is to pay attention to the ingredients printed on the tags and labels of clothes.

Prioritize choosing clothes for newborns made from woven cotton. This material will be able to absorb sweat well, be cool, soft and especially not cause skin irritation.
