The variety of blanket models we can buy for babies today is endless. In front of most classic garments (pink for girls, blue for boys) nowadays it is possible to dress babies as if they were small adults. More and more fashion firms are offering collections for very young children and even babies. However, before choosing one or other type of clothes for baby or to be tempted to wear it with “wholesale” clothing, we must make sure of which fabrics these garments are composed of. And today we’ll talk about superhero baby blanket! Skin, most extensive and most exposed body organ, is especially sensitive in babies.
The skin of babies, being thinner, is more delicate. Its epidermis is less resistant to chemical and microbial components than that of adults. Your skin is also more prone to drying out, to being damaged by UV rays and losing regulation of body temperature. For all these reasons, choosing right garment for them is paramount, above that model we may like more or less. Within natural fabrics, cotton is most suitable material for babies’ clothes. 100% cotton garments are breathable, easily washed and, in addition, help maintain baby’s body temperature.
By not using chemicals in its preparation, we will reduce risk of different allergies or rashes appearing on your skin. Superhero baby blanket cotton is especially recommended for garments that are in direct contact with your skin, such as body’s, socks or hats. Despite multitude of models and designs that exist today, we should avoid prints on this type of clothing. Drawings that may appear on these garments are usually made with inks or synthetic components that can cause baby to be harmful, even if base of fabric is made of cotton.
In addition, we should check seams of clothes. If finger feels minimal friction, it is not suitable for baby. Keep in mind that your skin, being much thinner than ours, will be more sensitive to chafing. That is why we must avoid hard seams and interior labels. Comfort should be above all. Changing a newborn can be difficult in itself, so clothes must be simple and easy to put on and take off. Baby should feel comfortable and have ability to move, without feeling tight. That is why tissues such as nylon or lycra are discouraged.
Brackets that are often present in this type of superhero baby blanket make it easier for us to change little ones. They are preferable to buttons, which can be released at a given time more easily and be dangerous for babies. However, we must not forget that it is better that these brackets are plastic or that, if they are metallic, do not have nickel, since it is a component that usually generates multiple allergies. As for footwear, age of baby will make you need some models or others. While not walking, footwear will have a function basically of shelter. Afterwards, it should be even more comfortable and suitable to take its first steps. Fabric and leather are best materials for baby’s foot to transpire.
