Clothing for Toddlers: Best Comfy Fabrics and reusable DIYs!

What fabric is best for toddler’s clothing during festivals?

Parents are confused about many things and surely one of them is the clothing for toddlers. Most of the experts agree that your kid’s wardrobe should have the following characteristics: good ventilation, a fabric that does not cause allergies, and the ability to absorb moisture. For your convenience, we have compiled the best fabrics for children’s festive clothing:

  1. Cotton: Undoubtedly we all know that our go-to fabric is cotton. The sole reason is that cotton allows air to pass through, it retains and absorbs moisture. Your kid can wear rompers, t-shirts, dresses, with a small amount of polyester as cotton tends to lose shape during washing.
  2. Linen: Thin linen and non-natural linen is a good option for your baby in times for the festive season. Linen clothing is best for hot summer weather- it absorbs moisture and passes a good amount of air which is good for your baby’s skin.
  3. Satin: Satin has that lustrous, glossy surface and looks a lot like silk. Due to its low thermal conductivity, satin will maintain the body temperature of your little one. It is super durable and doesn’t wrinkle- is actually the most suitable option for summer. (ref)
  4. Fleece: Being a synthetic artificial fabric – fleece has gained a lot of popularity among sportswear for children. It is easy to wash, does not deform, is durable, and dries relatively easily. It is easy on the skin and does not cause allergies on the soft babyish skin of your kiddo.
