Next, I will tell you about it.

And the size of each country is different, such as Japan is set according to the height, China is based on the height and body shape of the baby, Europe and the United States are based on the age and body shape of the baby.

In addition to the children’s underwear size comparison chart as a reference, other aspects should be considered for purchase:

First, the texture is meticulous

The texture directly determines the touch of the underwear and is the first factor to consider when choosing. Cotton underwear has become the only choice for the texture of baby’s underwear with its good sweat absorption and breathability and comfortable feel. Generally speaking, there are four kinds of cotton fabrics used to make baby underwear:

Knitted ribbed fabric: This is an elastic knitted fabric with a thin texture, characterized by elasticity, strong breathability, good hand feel, but slightly poor warmth, so it is not suitable for winter and is the best choice for summer.

Knitted cotton wool cloth: slightly thicker than ribbed cloth, is a double-layer elastic knitted fabric, characterized by excellent elasticity, warmth, breathability and good hand feel, suitable for autumn and winter underwear.

Cotton gauze: is a kind of flat woven fabric, because of the thin and large fiber gap, excellent air permeability, but elasticity, heat preservation and hand feel general, easy to shrink after washing, mainly used for summer underwear.

terry cloth: that is, terry pure cotton cloth, because of the thick texture, has strong warmth and good elasticity and feel, but the breathability is slightly poor, generally used for autumn and winter underwear.

Second, the workmanship is fine

Unlike adult clothing, baby underwear pays attention to workmanship not for beauty, but for safety and comfort. Finely crafted underwear generally pays more attention to the baby’s physical characteristics in terms of cut design, such as: the baby’s neck is always turning, the jaw and neck are easy to sweat, so the collar socket should not be too deep; The sleeve seam design affects the movement of the baby’s arms, and it is best to use a three-dimensional cut at the level of the sleeves and shoulders; The baby’s belly is relatively delicate, so the overlapping design of the abdomen can ensure that the baby does not get cold. In addition, because the baby’s underwear needs to be washed frequently, finely crafted clothes can ensure that buttons, straps, etc. are not easy to fall off, so as to avoid accidents such as baby’s accidental ingestion.

Third, the function is refined

Although the baby’s underwear is small, there are many types, long, short, robe-like, frog-shaped, daily wear, sleeping wear, there are as many as seven or eight kinds, and the different effects of each should be considered when choosing. For example: robes-like underwear are characterized by loose hems, suitable for babies before learning to crawl, during this period, his diapers are changed very frequently, as long as the hem is lifted; 2-3 months old baby’s legs and feet have increased movement, suitable for underwear with a hem divided in two; The frog style is more convenient for leg kicking and can avoid femoral dislocation; Compared with daily underwear, pajamas are more focused on warmth.

In addition, the choice of underwear function is also temporal, generally according to the baby’s growth stage, from convenient for the mother to put on and take off or change diapers gradually to facilitate the baby’s “manual feet”.

Fourth, pay attention to details

Attention to detail is an important yardstick to measure the mother’s carefulness, and it is also the most common mistake when choosing baby underwear.

Color: Baby’s underwear should be white, so that it is possible to minimize the damage caused by various colored dyes to the baby, and is conducive to finding some abnormal conditions, such as abnormal color feces or blood stains left by the baby’s own scratching skin. However, some overly white underwear may contain fluorescent agents and should be selected carefully.

Seams: Rough seams are easy to irritate your baby’s skin, especially under the armpits, wrists, etc., so you may wish to put it next to your cheek when choosing. Some brands of underwear turn all underwear sewn outwards, which is safer.

Buttons and knots: Baby underwear is best knotted to be safe and “close” to your baby’s body shape. Underwear with buttons, it is best to choose to use cloth buttons, which are softer and more comfortable than metal, plastic, and wood, and will not have burrs and other dangerous hidden dangers. Whether it’s a button or a knot, check the firmness when choosing, or buy it back and nail it again.

Pay attention to the movement of the baby when dressing the baby, follow the direction of his limb bending and movement, and not pull hard, so as to hurt the baby.
