The skin of babies is very sensitive, so here we tell you what you should take into account when buying clothes for your little one
The first thing you should keep in mind is that the clothes can be made of natural or synthetic fibers. Among the natural fibers we find organic cotton, silk, bamboo, cashmere, and even pineapple pulp. On the other hand, within the synthetic fibers we find polyester, cotton, spandex, or modacrylics.

The garments made from synthetic fabrics are treated with chemicals and can cause skin irritations or allergic reactions in your baby, so it is recommended that you dress your baby with clothes made from natural fabrics that are also biodegradable. This is not only important to take care of the skin of your little one, but also the environment.
On the other hand, this type of clothing is much easier to wash and it is not necessary to use chemical products to remove difficult stains, which is very good considering that babies get dirty enough with food. In addition, babies who suffer from allergies and wear clothes made of natural fabrics are less likely to suffer from the reactions.
Keep in mind that the clothes you use can also affect your baby's skin , since you spend most of the day having contact with him, so it's a good option that the clothes you use are also made of natural fiber. You can know the type of fabric of a garment by checking the internal label of the garment.
First wash the clothes!
On the other hand, regardless of the type of fabric of a garment, you must wash both your clothes and your baby's with warm water before using it for the first time, since it is usually impregnated with the chemicals used to enhance its color and make its texture is soft. In addition, adult clothing is usually pre-tested by another buyer, so you may encounter mites, lice or nits.
