What to avoid to put on the baby

Strings on sweatshirts can quickly become a problem as your little one becomes a little curious and starts sticking items in his or her mouth. If you can only find jackets and coats with buttons, double check to ensure that they are secure.
- Avoid closing on the back: babies spend a lot of time lying down on their backs. If you have an outfit that zips or buttons in the back, your baby will be stuck lying in thoes closeures sticking into their skin. This can be unconfortable, espically for baby's sentitive skin. Try to stick with the outfits that close in the front or atleast the side to make it easier for babies to lay in their cribs on the floor.
- Avoid unecessary accesories: while headbands in the baby's hair and braclets on babies arms may sound adorable. The more accesories you add to your babies outfit the more chocking hazzards items you are providing in close quaters to the baby. Keep your outfit as confortable as possible.
