There are so many wonderful things about being a grandparent, or a grandparent-to-be. Among those is having the perfect excuse to shop till you drop for adorable baby clothes, which have changed somewhat since your children were small.

Whether you love visiting stores or prefer online browsing, you'll find that baby outfits these days are not only cute but are safer, too, than they used to be. So, use these guidelines and shop away!

  • Check labels to be sure that all clothes are flame-retardant.
  • Look for styles or fabrics that will make it easier to dress your grandbaby. These might include garments that snap or button in the front, rather than the back, or that snap or zip down both legs. Stretchy fabrics are good, too. Stay clear of tight bindings around the neck, arms, or legs.
  • Avoid clothes with any loose items, such as buttons, beads, or eyes of appliquéd animals. Your grandbaby regards these objects as chewing material and could swallow them or choke on them.
  • Avoid clothing with loose strings, inside or out. Strings are a choking hazard, and small body parts can become entangled. Check for loose threads inside garments before dressing the baby.
  • Let your little one go barefoot or just wear skid socks indoors to build strong feet and ankles. Soft flexible shoes for the early walker outside are best.
  • Choose hats with brims, as these are vital for sun protection and heat regulation, winter and summer.

Have fun shopping and snapping pictures of your grandbaby wearing those new outfits!
