Parents love nothing more than to glance at their young ones as they emerge from their dressing rooms, and if you’re lucky, you’ll be able to dress them easily enough so that they can catch your eye. While children usually dress themselves (if they have enough clothing at their disposal), you can help them look cute and fashionable by warming up their clothes. This will allow them to get dressed quickly without having to stop and wait while you get dressed, which is valuable time they can spend with you instead of in their room. Allow them to get dressed first before you start getting dressed.
Let Them Choose Their Clothes
A toddler’s wardrobe isn’t quite as vast as an adult’s. Between the ages of 1 and 4, it consists primarily of overalls, t-shirts and pants, and all variations. I recommend allowing your child to choose their own clothing. This allows them to develop a sense of ownership over their wardrobe. It also helps them build autonomy and confidence in themselves so they can feel like a big kid.
Involve Them When Shopping For Their Clothes
It’s a great idea to make your child’s first steps in shopping a bit easier by having them assist you with the selection. Have them help you choose the right clothes and then help pack them up. Involve them in shopping even before their own six-year-old is old enough to understand what’s going on.
Warm Up Their Clothes
Nothing is more enjoyable than watching your 2-year-old or 6-month old toddle around in their new coat or snowsuit. The excitement about new clothes and snug bodies that you can pick up and swing around is definitely a parent’s delight. So make sure you choose clothes that will keep them cozy and warm in the cold weather.
Choose Clothes That Can Go On And Off Easily
Let’s face it, dressing and changing a toddler can be a messy ordeal. The legs of a pair of jeans are often covered in mud by the time it’s taken off, diapers have their own set of issues, and getting clothing over a head full of hair is next to impossible. Save your sanity and choose easy-on-and-off clothes for your little one to wear to ensure a smooth morning (or afternoon) full of playtime.
Stick To Clothes With Easy Washing Instructions
You read that right. You don’t want to spend money on baby clothes only to have them shrink, fade, and fall apart after the first washing. Buying gear that’s easy to wash is a huge must for any parent. You also probably won’t like to wash a toddler’s clothes with those stains with your own hands. So look for clothes that you can wash in a machine and won’t get damaged by warm water.
Choose Fabrics That Are Durable And Long Lasting
Your baby is now a toddler; this means she will likely be spending a lot of time outside of the house wearing her cute and stylish outfits. The problem with toddlers is that they like to run around, get into everything, and, most importantly, keep you on your toes. This means you’ll likely have to do laundry one or more times per week. So make sure you dress your toddler in clothes that can withstand countless washings for months and years.
