Top Clothes for Baby Boys
From the moment they enter the world, babies grow rapidly. Their size changes so quickly that within the first year, their clothing range across several different sizes, such as newborn, 0 to 3 months, 3 to 6 months, 6 to 9 months, and 12 months. The rate of growth slows slightly after that point. However, parents still find themselves buying new clothes frequently as their baby’s waist and chest broaden and legs and arms lengthen.
Baby boys and girls have different styles to suit their personalities.
|Truly Scrumptious Knit Cargo Pants|
The Truly Scrumptious line was created by model and TV celebrity Heidi Klum. The clothing features soft comfort for the baby’s skin combined with tough materials that can stand up to the child’s constant movements. One great piece for any baby’s wardrobe is the boy’s knit cargo pants. It comes in sizes from newborn through 24 months. The gray or dark blue colors allow parents to mix and match the pants with other Truly Scrumptious pieces or with colorful shirts from other brands. The pants have a comfortable elastic waistband and are made of 100 percent cotton. They can go into the washer and dryer for quick, easy maintenance.
|Carter’s Graphic Tees|
Carter’s new line of short-sleeved graphic tees does not have any scratchy tags to irritate the baby’s tender skin. Instead, the label is printed on the shirt. The soft cotton jersey helps the baby stay comfortable and cool whether he is crawling, pulling up, or toddling around the house or yard. The graphic tees come in several different styles with images that appeal to little boys. One is cherry red with the image of a rocket and the slogan “I’m a Blast!” Another is gray with the words “Dept 46,” a sketch of a fire truck, and a tiny fireman’s shield on the left sleeve. Still another is lime green with a gray dinosaur and the words “Tough Guy.” For families planning a vacation, graphic tees with images of sea animals and shades of teal, navy, gray, and white are popular. Each of these tees comes in sizes from newborn to 24 months.
|Offspring Frog Footie and Hat|
Also new for 2013 is the Offspring Frog footie and hat set. White navy and white stripes provide a background to tiny, bright green jumping frogs. The narrow collar, cuffs, and feet of this snug outfit are also green. The ensemble comes with a soft, matching cap to keep baby boys’ heads warm on cool spring and summer nights or protected from UV rays during the days. The cotton material makes the clothes easy to care for, while the snaps between the legs allow parents easy access for diaper changes. The Offspring Frog footie and hat are available in sizes from newborn through 9 months.
|Truly Scrumptious Hand-Drawn Tees|
In 2013, Heidi Klum’s Truly Scrumptious line features a baby boy’s tee with a special hand-drawn character from her young son Johan.
