Tips for Dressing Up Your Baby This Christmastime
For the Christmas holiday, why not consider some cute outfits for baby? No doubt there will be dozens and dozens of family photos taken during this time, and you may even be posing for photos for your family Christmas card or newsletter.
You don’t need to break your budget or overspend in order to find the best and the cutest clothes for baby. A few simple outfits can make him or her just adorable, and you can even add some accessories to clothes they already have to make them even more appropriate for the season.
First, consider the colors of the season. A jumper in red or green can be appropriate for casual times. Think soft but warm materials since it will probably be cold wherever you are! A red and white candy cane style stripe can make your little one seem even more fun and festive.
Also, consider that babies get uncomfortable in fussy clothes very easily, so if you’re looking for dresses for the girls or suits for the boys, choose soft materials that do not bind or constrict anywhere. For very young babies, choose jumpers that have a suit design on them rather than actual ties and vests. For the girls, avoid underskirts or too many decorative embellishments that may wind up in their mouths.
You can also dress baby in a special outfit just for the cameras and then change him or her right after. A Santa suit, Christmas tree shaped or stocking shaped jumper, elf suit, or very special dress or suit and tie can be fine for those few minutes it takes to pose if you then put them back into their comfortable pajamas or leggings and t-shirt afterwards.
