We need to be very careful while selecting clothes for our young kids. Because more than the color and design of the clothes that the child will wear, there are many factors that can threaten the health of the kid because of the quality of fabric and dyes used. First of all, you need to look at whether the clothing contains carcinogenic substances. As the matter of fact, Cancer is becoming very common in people, today. When children sweat, AZO dyes and chemicals containing heavy metals can penetrate the child’s skin and influence DNA and trigger cancer. For this reason, cheap and man-made fiber products should be avoided for children. Cotton clothing should be preferred to children from the days of infancy.
As man-made fabrics like nylon or polyester products can affect the skin’s healthy breathing, 100 percent cotton clothing should be preferred. In the same way, when choosing socks one-on-one contact to the skin needs to be selected from cotton. The kid should be comfortable in the clothes he or she wears. That’s why, clothes that can be easily worn and removed, which do not restrict movement, arms and waist parts are not hard should be preferred. One of the biggest mistakes made is to wrap the child up, even if the weather is hot. Thin clothes should be preferred when the weather is hot. In the winter months, it is recommended to dress up one layer more than normal clothing. Moreover, when the weather is warm, children should be dressed in light colors. Colors and fabrics should be selected keeping the child's long-term health in mind.
Clothes for children should be soft and smooth so that they don’t irritate their sensitive skin. Cotton is a good choice and fits the bill. However, it’s worth going for organic cotton on the pieces that are going to be directly touching their skin such as undergarments and nightwear. This is because cotton is a crop, however, because it’s not used as food it’s not subject to the same strict guidelines when it comes to chemicals and pesticides. These pesticides can remain on the cotton, and on the fabrics even after washing. Because babies skin is so delicate and porous, this is far more of a problem for them than it is for adults. Pesticides have been linked to all kinds of problems, so it’s better to be safe than sorry. Lots of baby and children's clotheslines use organic cotton, it’s a little more expensive but worth the investment.
