Toddlers can get pretty rambunctious. Whether they are out on the playground or running around with their friends in the background, they need clothes that can move with them. While trying out different clothes, you will want to make sure they pass thebend and twist test

Can your child bend down or reach up without their shorts sliding down? Do the clothes contain excess material? Clothes that are too large or baggy can be uncomfortable to play in. Rather than having to worry about adjusting their clothes every several seconds, your child would much prefer wearing comfortable clothes that they can easily move around in. 

5. Try Outfits Made of Soft Fabrics Like Bamboo Baby Clothes

Scratchy and stiff clothing is never fun to wear. Our bamboo baby essentials offer the ultimate experience in comfort for the little ones. Made of innovative Softek™ fabric, our bamboo baby essentials offer sun protection, stain-resistance, and breathability. They are also designed to wick sweat away from your child’s delicate skin.

By purchasing bamboo baby clothes, you are also following eco-friendly practices! Bamboo cleans the air, supplies oxygen, and takes very little maintenance to grow and upkeep. 

6. Layer Different Essentials

On cold days, you can layer a hoodie over a long sleeved shirt. Some parents like layering pocket shorts over akimono bodysuit

In general, you should add one more layer of clothing to your child’s outfit than you would wear yourself. This is because babies tend to lose heat quickly.
