Is it teething time for your little one?
When you are choosing clothes for your baby
Your little squish is a soft as it gets, they deserve the very best and so do you. As a new parent, the world can be overwhelming and it can be tough to know where to find the best info… especially when it comes to clothing them. Here are our top tips for building baby’s wardrobe from day one:
Don’t overspend
Try not to spend too much on essentials, as your little one won’t be so little in the blink of an eye. Multipacks are the best way to go - as your baby will go through more crisp white bodysuits than you ever thought possible. Sleepsuits that come in packs of two to three are ideal or you can stock up by mix and matching with different styles.There is a great selection at Dunnes Stores - with a three pack of sleep suits for just €9.50 and a pack of five short sleeved body suits for just €5.80. 
Make life easy for yourself
For new mums, it’s all about the little things that make this whirlwind called parenting a bit easier. Choose clothes that won’t make night-time changes or out-and-about nappy explosions difficult. Choose baby bodysuits that have an envelope neck opening, making it easy to pull over baby's head or pull downwards undressing. Suits with handy popper fastenings make for a quick and easy change and are ideal for mums on the move.
Choose cotton
Bless their cotton socks, tiny humans have very sensitive skin and only the gentlest material should be used to keep them safe and warm. The soft, absorbent and breathable qualities of cotton make organic cotton perfect for the newest of newborns. Make sure you choose a Global Organic Textile Standard certified range that has been expertly designed for the newest of skin - second only to your baby when it comes to being natural. Choose the Dunnes Stores Sheep Organic Sleepsuit three pack, suitable from newborn to 12 months for just €9.50 or the Elephant Bodysuits five pack, suitable from newborn – 2 / 3years for only €7. 
Safety first
We’d all love the idea of raising a mini fashionista, but realistically safety and comfort are top of the list when it comes to your baby. Choose sleepsuits that have turn-back scratch mitts for your littlest one’s protection and your peace of mind. For your little wobbler, slip-resistant soles are essential to keep them safe as they learn to walk. Opt for clothing made without harmful dyes or chemicals and make sure they have nickel-free poppers so that baby’s skin won’t be irritated. You can sleep easy (if you manage to sleep at all) knowing your baby is safe and sound.
