Dressing up a baby for party is as difficult as finding a suitable dress for yourself. We can make choices about color, style, fitting, trend and many other things. Babies might not be very demanding and choosy as they haven’t reached toddler stage yet, however while dressing up babies is lot more than just choosing a particular style or color.
Baby dresses for special occasions
When Selecting baby dresses for social occasions, many other factors come in picture.
No matter how cure kids look in frills and nets but honestly no baby can be comfortable in those for long. A soft cotton dress would be more suitable any time. The fabric makes all the difference.
Unless the baby is happy and quiet, neither you nor anyone around will be able to enjoy the gathering. Non comfortable clothes can itch, prick or even leave a rash on babies’ gentle skin. The movement of the infant should be free, the clothing must not be very tight or restricting the leg movement.
When it comes to clothing, organic cotton clothing is best. They are gentle on babies’ skin, super soft, naturally anti-bacterial and incredibly cool. Organic cotton is not just trend but necessity.
Season and Venue
We all dress mostly according to the season. Except, a few who can go bare back in the chilling ‘Dilli Ki sardi’. Nothing wrong in it, it’s a choice that adults make. But for babies, I am sure you need to dress them up according to the weather. Making babies wear heavy clothes like suit or sherwani in 45 degrees, is part of bad parenting as per me.
Venue as well as how long are you going to make the baby wear those clothes also matter. Depending upon the venue is it an open or closed place and are you going to stay for long are also the important factors in deciding what to make the baby wear.
Safety has always been one of the important factors always. Buttons, ribbons, laces that babies can put in their mouth should be avoided. Specially on sleeves, cuffs or even collar, as it is easy to put in mouth.
But with current COVID19, changing our lives, taking kids out to gathering poses a bigger safety threat than loose buttons and threads.
People tend to pick up the baby, cuddle or even give a peck on the cheek. I would suggest making baby wear clothes which cover whole body. Including socks and mittens. Babies won’t keep masks, so its better to take a stand and ask people to maintain safe distance, and keep wet wipes and sanitizers handy for sure.
Sometimes even after you did your best and considered all the factors, while dressing up the baby for party. Still it is must to carry an additional clothing along with you. I am sure you keep additional clothes in your baby bag or diaper bag. Babies might spill something, puke or just start being cranky in one set of clothes, moms must be ready with a plan B always.
My choice of clothes, for babies for special occasion is always Onesies and Rompers only. They meet all these criteria for baby dresses for special occasions. And what can be better than getting these styles in organic fabric.
Berry tree, is one such brand which offers baby clothes in organic cotton. If you are a new mom, or there is a baby in your family, then you must check out this brand. I am happy that I found a brand which offers all under one roof when it comes to baby dresses for special occasions.
Happy Dressing up!!!!
