5 Tips for buying Baby dresses during festive season

Tips for buying Baby dresses online

I love this part of the year when the environment is full of colourful and festive vibes. So much glitter, positivity, it just unfurls me and my rosy emotions. All the more this is the best time in the year when I feel to shop all around. So many discounts and deals that I just can’t help curtailing my shopping sentiments. And for a working mama like me, what best can be to get the trendy designs and latest fashions sitting at home or at office. Yes, That’s why I love  Online Shopping

All the more, after having baby, the world revolves around them. For every festival, specially Diwali, it comes as an order from the far staying off grannies to get the dresses and toys for my little munchkin. As I was gearing up to my favourite baby dresses, I recalled that I had to shop for my bestie. Reason, she has been blessed with a darling doll, a fairy had arrive few months before.

I adore the beautiful, fashionable dresses and accessories for the fairies in our lives. They are meant to beautify their innocence, to bring a sparkle to their smiles and to glitter all around like their eyes. The choice was difficult, really with so many options, and that laid the basis of this post.

How to chose baby dresses online, that goes perfect in one buy itself for our precious babies.

So here are 5 points to be considered before buying baby dresses :

1. Comfortable Fabric :

Since here, I was getting a gift for 7 month doll, I had to look at the dresses which could be super comfy to her. She has been into this world and is yet a delicate darling, so I needed to be extra cautious to get her the comfort of a soft cloth. Babies are sensitive, so for that, one need to have soft cotton blends, or Organic clothing. For that trendy, soft and gentle feel, I prefer Cotton, Bamboo and Cotton+Polyester Blend. Remember, a comfortable baby is more happier than just a trendy baby. What they seek for is comfort and coziness rather than fashion.

2. Size :

That’s really very important whether you are buying for your baby or gifting a friend. Always try to opt for one size ahead of baby’s actual age. They could be little larger when they try at first, but babies grow quickly and they can easily wear one large size. So, you can go for a 9-12 month selection for 7month old baby. If not, they can wear it up a month later.

Also consider the season wear, incase you are sending a large size and winters would be approaching by then, opt for warm clothes and same goes vice versa.

3. Simplicity :

I personally prefer zips over buttons for the comfort of a baby. A trendy outfit should not be complicated else you will find a cranky baby rather than a smiling one with your beautiful dress. Remember they will also have diapers, so select the baby dress in a manner that one can have an easy access to changing the nappies/diapers. They will have many sessions of feeding, burping, nappy changing, so ensure that the dress you chose is not getting itchy/painful for babies.

4. Shop during Sales time :

Get clothes of the coming months, when the sales starts. You’ll get such pretty and comfy dresses at 40%-60% off or similar, more so during festive season. Pile up clothes for upcoming festival/function or even the next season. Like, if my baby is 6 months as of now, in the upcoming winter sale a month from now, I would opt for 12-18months summer clothes and 18-24m warm clothes for winters. It actually is a huge saving specially while Online Shopping.

5. Value-For-Money Clothing :

There is no point paying those soaring prices for designer clothes. Agree, we all get tempted to have the best dresses for our babies. But there is no point going over pricey, as they will wear it too less to get the complete value of the dress. Have a look at the comfy, cute, adorable baby dresses, compare the pricing and yes buy in small lots. Don’t get over excited by getting bulk dresses, as babies will outgrow them very soon. I have faced such situations when my baby wore favourite dresses just twice or thrice, and I was..Ahh, he looked so cute in them, Bye bye!

So after deciding on all these parameters, I opted for these two cute dresses, one for festival time and another as a casual comfy dress.

    I’m not sure I’ve ever put this much thought into buying anything. I’m more of the, “Ooh! This is cute!” or “Ooh! This is cheap!” approach. Bonus when they happen at the same time.
