Changing & Bathing

Dressing Babies

After looking longingly at tiny booties and cute outfits for 9 months, now you can finally dress your baby in all those adorable clothes you've collected! Dressing a baby can however be harder than it looks. With their floppy heads and delicate bodies many parents worry they'll somehow hurt their baby while dressing them.


You probably have more baby clothes than your baby could ever possibly wear, as a result of generous friends and family donating baby clothes (no-one can resist the allure of the baby clothes department in a clothes shop!). Give some thought however to the type of clothes you dress your baby in - the beautiful frilly dress with matching lace cardi and accompanying hairband might be the cutest thing you've ever seen (except for your baby of course), but might not be the most practical of outfits for a baby, who typically pees, poos, possets, vomits and drools pretty much constantly throughout the day.
