Baby clothes can be washed on a regular cycle in your washing machine. Sort them into lights and darks to prevent colours from bleeding and staining the whites. Tiny socks and bibs can be washed in mesh bags to make sorting and folding easier.
Hanging outside is best, weather permitting, but if you’re drying in a dryer, use the low heat setting to prevent shrinkage. Check for and treat stains before washing, as they will set once out of the dryer. Cold water wash is recommended for baby clothes, as warm or hot water can set stains and make colours bleed.
For machine washing, a standard everyday washing machine will do just fine. Baby clothesare manufactured to be low maintenance regarding washing and drying. Some extra care might be needed regarding drying cycles, but generally, they’re washed the same as your clothes. Some washing machine manufacturers include a particular baby wash cycle, but it isn’t essential.
Organising baby clothes largely depends on your storage options. However, the following tips might help:
Sort by size: keep the current size closest to hand. Keep the next size near as well, but larger sizes can be stored. As different designers have different sizing and your baby is unique, standard sizing by age might not apply.
Sizing is recommended by month, but weight is a more accurate reflection of what size works best.
Label storage containers: keeping clothing items well-labelled helps identify the options quicker. This also helps when a carer must tend to the baby without being familiar with your particular storage system.
Reevaluate baby clothes every three months: As babies grow very quickly, they tend to outgrow clothes before they can be worn out. Donate or store outgrown baby clothes to prevent clutter and unnecessary laundry.
Seasonal: try to keep your baby clothes organised for the current season. Nothing is more frustrating than trying to dress a squirming baby and finding only long-sleeved items when it's the height of summer. Babies need to be comfortable, just as parents need to be. Keep in mind that newborns cannot regulate their body temperature. In these cases, layers are best, as you can always remove or add as needed. Thin breathable blankets and bedding are best for summer, whereas fleece can be great for the colder winter months.
Special baby laundry detergents are available at most standard retail outlets. They require a separate cycle dedicated to baby clothes and linen. These products are extensively tested to ensure baby skin safety. Many households use the same products for parents and babies, so while special detergents aren’t essential, it’s good to know they’re available.
Brand new baby clothes want to be washed before being worn for the first time. Your newly purchased baby items had a life before ending up in your shopping cart. Aside from being handled in the manufacturing process, they sat around in boxes in warehouses and were handled again during the shipping process. This includes all bedding and soft toys. Generally, baby laundry can be handled the same as adult laundry: Wash as needed.
Yes. Ironing baby clothes and linen kills and weakens many bacterial strains that might otherwise come into contact with your baby.
Babies are unique, and what they wear is dependent mainly on their size. Some babies never fit into newborn sizes. Babies also grow at an incredible rate, as they double their birth weight by five months.
A general rule of thumb is to keep to the baby's weight rather than size per month. Most clothing labels are just a recommendation regarding size and should be used like that.
Many newborns outgrow their newborn clothes within two weeks from birth. Zero to three month sizes are more economical, as you can get at least 10 weeks of wear out of them before they are outgrown. Should your baby fall in between sizes, buy the bigger size to compensate for growth spurts.
Organic fabrics are the first choice for baby clothes. Cotton fabrics are soft, absorbent, and gentle on baby skin. Bamboo and soy fibres are also a fantastic choice, as they’re hypo-allergenic, soft, and absorbent. Most retail baby clothes are made from a mixture of cotton and polyester to give the clothing the best balance between caring for the baby's skin and being easy to maintain.
