When new parents, or friends and family of parents (for a baby shower) are shopping, there are many things they need to consider buying, including burp cloths, towels, diapers, and baby clothes. These are a few of the things often found in infant gift sets that retailers purchase on wholesale. For new parents, all of the different styles and options of these items can get confusing. This article will cover the four most popular styles of baby clothes that are often found in infant gift sets, and that are given by friends and families: body suits, one pieces, baby gowns, and baby clothing sets.
Baby Body Suits
Infant body suits are probably the most preferred by parents because they are so easy to use. These pieces are often described as a long t-shirt held together by snap buttons. The snap buttons make them super easy to change the infant’s clothes and change their diaper because there are separate bottom snaps. For the parents who are on a budget, there are the generic styles of body suits called snapsuits, babygrow, babygro, mameluco, diaper shirts, and creepers.
A one piece is often referred to as “sleep n’ plays,” sleepers, or footsies, depending on the type of one piece the customer is searching for. They are similar to body suits in that they use snap buttons and are one piece of material, hence the name. They differ from infant suits mostly in their look. While baby suits look more like a leotard with or without sleeves, the one piece looks more like adult clothing with pants and sleeves. Some styles also come with “footies” attached or detached, but sold with the product. These pieces of clothing are great because there are many different patterns that can be used for daytime or nighttime.
The description of this item should be obvious; they are one piece of material that has an opening at the bottom with elastic to provide warmth for the infant’s feet while he or she sleeps. While this piece of clothing may seem like it is geared more towards female children, there are designs that make it gender neutral. Parents love this piece because there are no snaps or zippers to get in the way of a quick diaper change.
Outfit or Clothing Sets
This set of clothing is more for the fashion conscious parent that’s more concerned how their child looks than having something quick and convenient. This is because this set will come with many different options, including a combination of baby suits, pants, shirts, and footies. All pieces come in matching styles suited for boys or girls.
There are so many style options and resources for baby clothes sold at retail. Hopefully, this article has eased some of the stress or worries of parents, as well as families and friends who are buying baby clothing for their expecting friends, or retailers purchasing infant gift sets at wholesale.
