Fabric and Style
Newborn babies are not able to regulate their temperature effectively so clothing should be chosen according to the climate and season. Cotton is the perfect choice for warm weather while synthetic knits and lambswool are ideal when something cozier is required or if you want to make sure that your baby is winter-proofed. Some high-end baby outfits are made from cashmere; while this is extremely fine, warm and soft it also requires hand-washing or dry-cleaning so is best reserved for special occasions.
When choosing styles for your baby boy, make sure they are easy to put on and take off, and look for outfits that have snap fastenings to allow easy diaper changes. Boyish styles include dungarees, trousers and even baby-size jeans. Check that there are no scratchy labels or stitching that might irritate sensitive skin.
Colour and Pattern

Since the 1950s, blue has been accepted as a symbolic color for baby boys and pink for baby girls, although this is not a universal rule and when choosing clothes, you should be guided by your own taste. Motifs such as cars, trains, trucks and aeroplanes are popular decorations for baby boy’s clothes, and animals are a perennial favourite for boys and girls alike. Some parents prefer to dress baby boys in bright colors while others choose the more traditional white and soft pastels.
