Which sliders for newborns are better? Rules for choosing diapers for newborns
Sliders and baby's ruffles are their first clothes. It is very important to choose them correctly, because at this age the child can not yet tell you that he does not like clothes (small, rubs the skin, is unpleasant to the touch).
Which is better - sliders or diapers?
It's no secret that the word "sliders" came from the word "crawl." Our mothers and grandmothers used to tightly wrap the baby in the first two to three months of life and the first clothes of crumbs were diapers. Today, some mothers wear baby sliders almost from birth. So which is better? Of course, the sliders are absolutely necessary when the baby starts to sit and crawl. It is recommended to stop swaddling, when the child stops sharply pulling the handles in a dream and waking up due to excessive motor activity. Everything is very individual.
Some babies quietly sleep without swaddling in the maternity hospital, and some need to reel up the legs to 2-3 months. You should also know that the baby will be warmer in the sliders than in the diaper.
How much to buy sliders for newborns? While you are shrouding, it will be enough 4 pieces of warm and 4 pieces of thin. If you do not use diapers, you'll need 20-25 sliders: you'll need to change them about 10 times a day, one shampoo, another use. Do not buy just a lot of panties, maybe a child will be more comfortable in a diaper. Also, first determine which model is more convenient for you and your baby.
What are the sliders for newborns?
Sliders are panties, connected with socks. Make them in two models.
Bib. High, close the back and breast, on the shoulders of the strap on clasps (buttons), buttons or ties. This model is warm, it warms the baby's back. Sliders with a high breast are comfortable when the baby starts to crawl, and the back can be quite open.
Pslippers on an elastic band - Simple and convenient option. The elastic band can be wide or narrow. It is important that it does not crash into the tummy.
Overalls (slips) cover the handles and legs and at the same time allow you to quickly change the diaper due to the fasteners in front. These are not exactly sliders, but they also close the legs.
Which model is more convenient will depend only on your preferences. You should try both, and then buy the complete set.
Sliders for newborns have a size depending on the length of the child's body in centimeters.
For newborns: 50, 52, 54, 56. If you buy clothes before giving birth, then usually get pants 56 sizes.
Then each size increases by six centimeters: 62, 68, 74 and so on.
At this age the child will add about one size every month. To make it easier to navigate when buying clothes, look at the table of sizes by the age of the baby.
The average size of the sliders, depending on the age, is as follows: from birth to 1 month - 56th, in 2-3 months - 62nd, at 3-4 months - 68th, at 5-6 months - 74th, at 7-8 months - the 80th, from 9 months to the year - the 86th size. In a year and a half, children grow on average to 92nd size.
Do not get many clothes of the same size at once - crumbs grow quickly, some things moms do not even have time to put on the baby.
What to look for when buying sliders
Cheap sliders for newborns can buy and need, but pay attention to the following details.
The material from which the clothes are made. Avoid any inclusion of synthetics. Only natural fabrics based on cotton, linen and wool. Warm sliders are made from flannel, baikis (footer), mahry. Light things are made of chintz or knitwear: it is a flailing, interlock, ribbon and ruff. All natural fabrics are soft to the touch, pleasant to the body, breathable, absorb the moisture well.
Check the seams. They should be high-quality processed, soft to the touch, do not rub the skin. The first sliders for the baby is better to buy with the seams out - so you will protect the crumb from the unpleasant sensations as much as possible.
The fabric should be durable, of good quality, as children's clothing is exposed to frequent washing. Colors are preferable to neutral, in pastel colors.
Fasteners should be located in convenient places, do not interfere with the child. Buttons on the shoulders are more practical than straps and buttons. High models should have fasteners that facilitate changing the diaper.
Elastic enough elastic, but not too tight.
Do-it-yourself sliders: sew or tie?
This detail of children's clothing has a simple pattern. Sew sliders more often from jersey, tselnokroenye. The pattern consists of two large parts: the transfer and the back. The feet are sewn separately. If the fabric does not stretch well, then the front part is made a little wider, and the gusset between the pants is also inserted.
You can link baby sliders with knitting needles or crochet hooks. The knitting pattern is also simple and accessible even for beginners, since clothes for small children do not require complex patterns. For newborns, yarn from 100% of cotton thread is used, children from six months and older can knit things from pure wool or with 10-20% of synthetic thread (if not planned to put such sliders on the naked body). 100% acrylic yarn, although very similar to wool, still does not have sufficient hygiene.
Regardless of whether you buy, sew or knit baby sliders, pay attention to the quality and comfort of your clothes. After all, comfortable and practical clothes will provide a good mood for both the baby and his mother.
