Many of the clothes bought for a newborn are actually gifts. This is a welcome present for the brand new parents if the clothes fit the child. Be sure to buy appropriate clothes and gifts when visiting for the first time.
As a new baby is born in the family and as the child is bound to grow fast, clothes will be a perfect gift for the proud parents. In fact, everything is needed in huge amounts, and in different sizes as the child grows considerably the first year. That includes bibs, hats, caps, towels, and blankets. As it might be very rough on a parent to be able to go shopping with a newborn around, clothes as a gift becomes even more appreciated.
One huge question for the friend or family member wanting to buy clothes as a gift for the brand new baby is the question of size. One easy thing to do is to ask the actual parents for the length and size of the baby. If this is not possible, the baby clothes are labeled with sizes according to what is considered to be normal for a child at a certain age. To make sure the clothes will be useful for the baby, always buy clothes a size too big.
