How to Properly Dress Your Child and Why It’s so Important

Dressing your child properly is an often overlooked part of being a parent. We all understand that we should feed our children healthy food, make sure they get plenty of exercise and are well educated. But what if the clothes they wore when growing up were just as important?

It Keeps them Healthy and Saves You Money

Ask any parent and they’ll tell you raising a child isn’t easy, especially in todays tough economic climate. It’s no surprise one of parents biggest concerns is money. Buying expensive clothes for their children just isn’t a viable option.

But what if investing in quality clothing actually saved you money in the long run?

Think about it, you can buy a mass produced jumper made from cheap material for £6 that will need replacing perhaps five times in any given year. Or you can buy one £25 jumper that’s made from high quality materials, produced with care and is kind to your child's skin.

Saving you £5 over a 12 month period. And that’s just on one item.

The savings don’t end there either. 

Dressing Children Properly in Winter

Making sure your child is dressed properly for winter might seem like something you don’t need to be told. But we often see parents that are just too busy to dress their kids properly for the cold weather. Or they just don’t have the right quality clothing to keep them warm.

Not only is this irresponsible on the parents part but it’s actually costing you money. It might not seem like it but think about the effort, loss of time and expense on medicine when your child gets ill from not being properly protected in the winter.

You’ll be up at night checking they are ok, taking days off work to look after them and forking out on expensive medicines. 

All of this can be avoided if you just invest in high quality children's clothing and ensure your chid is dressed properly in clothes that are made to last, made for comfort and made for warmth.

Just like all of our ranges here at Good For Babies.

It Impacts Their Future

As you know, at a young age children learn by imitating and replicating their parents. The way they behave as an adult will be directly linked to how they were treated when growing up. 

If you’re dressing your child in unfashionable, cheap and poor quality clothing you are setting them up to continue this trend throughout their teenage years and into young adulthood. 

As we’ve pointed out, it’s not a question of money. Quality clothing lasts longer than cheap mass produced items and the extra benefits by way of style, design and comfort make buying cheap clothes seem a complete waste of time.

The best way to educate your child on the benefits of smart clothes shopping and even smarter dress sense is to start now. You’ll be setting them up for a brighter future and one day they will be sure to thank you for it.
