Are bodysuits good for babies? 

Until now, the bodysuit or romper has always been one of the most popular outfits for newborns thanks to the following great benefits:

Changing diapers is easy

In the newborn stage, babies often go to the toilet using diapers. Choosing a bodysuit will help make the process of changing and closing diapers for your baby easy and quick because the crotch has a row of buttons that can be removed/closed very simply.

Besides, wearing a bodysuit helps keep your baby’s diaper in place. Avoid the situation where the diaper is dislodged, leading to the baby defecating outside and wetting surrounding items.

Help your baby move freely

A bodysuit will help your baby move more comfortably than any other type of clothing. This is extremely important because from the 3rd month onwards, babies start to be more active such as rolling over, crawling, raising their arms/legs,…

Keep your baby’s back and belly warm

Babies often stir when sleeping, causing the blanket to fall off, which can easily cause them to catch a cold and affect their health. With bodysuits, mothers don’t have to worry because they are discreetly designed and extend past the waist, helping to keep the baby’s back and belly warm.

With the above benefits, mothers can feel completely secure when wearing a bodysuit for their babies. Currently, bodysuits also have many designs and colors for mothers to choose from. You can immediately refer to K-Embroidery’s hhan-smocked bodysuits for infants collection Right here!

Is it better for newborns to wear solid clothes or separate clothes?

Newborns will need to change many outfits in one day, so it will be quite inconvenient to have to change their shirts and pants. In addition, if wearing loose clothes, the child’s skin can easily be exposed, causing the child to feel cold. Therefore, wearing seamless clothes will bring more benefits to the health of newborns.

  • About time: When changing loose clothes, it will take more time because you have to change both shirt and pants. As for seamless clothes, mothers only need to wear them once simply.
  • Regarding the ability to keep warm: When moving or turning while wearing loose clothes, the baby’s stomach gets cold. When wearing overalls, the baby’s belly is always covered.
  • Regarding the possibility of causing vomiting: When the mother lifts the baby’s legs to change pants, it can easily cause the baby to vomit and reflux milk back into the mouth. As for seamless clothes, the mother only needs to unbutton the pants at the crotch to easily change.
  • Regarding convenience when changing diapers: With loose clothing, the mother must take off her pants first before changing the baby’s diaper. As for the one-piece, mothers only need to unbutton the crotch to easily change the baby’s diaper.
  • About neatness: Wearing one-piece clothes will help your baby look neat and move more conveniently.

Some notes when choosing to buy a bodysuit for newborns

Choose the right fabric material

Mothers should prioritize choosing bodysuits made from cotton because they are thin, light, and absorbent. This material will help care for your baby’s delicate, sensitive skin. You should avoid synthetic materials because they will cause your baby’s skin to become irritated, red, itchy, etc.

Choose the right size for your baby

Size is an important criterion for mothers to choose a bodysuit that is suitable for their baby. Mothers should choose a suitable size, not too loose or too tight so that the baby can move comfortably. Newborns develop very quickly, so mothers buy 3 – 5 sets for each stage to save costs.

Mothers should choose different bodysuit styles such as short-sleeved and long-sleeved to suit the weather of the year.
