Day 181 - Scratchy Clothes

Today's First Time Parenting Tip - If it would be uncomfortable for you to wear, its probably uncomfortable for your baby to wear.

We put our son into a little "Finding Nemo" onesie the other day. Pretty cool, it's got a nice green color and the orange fish stiched right onto the chest. Took it off him and noticed that he had a little read agitated area of skin on his chest. Hmm. Whatever could it be?

Now if you handed me a shirt with a big Nemo on the front, but the inside of the shirt had that starchy, scratchy material that gets sewn on the back to hold it on, I probably wouldn't wear it too much. Likewise with clothes that are made of scratchy material on hot days, etc.

Just something to pay attention to. I know kids get away with wearing things that adults could never wear cause they're so darn cute, but there's no reason for them to be uncomfortable. If you wouldn't wear it because of comfort reasons, they shouldn't either.

Those pesky tags really do get in the way... I try to cut them off but they still bother my son's skin. Good tip.
