Shopping for baby clothes can be very stressful. It is hard to pick out the best Fair Trade Clothing Items for your newborn as you know they will grow out of the clothes rather quickly. In addition, the newborn might be too small, or worse yet, too big for newborn size clothes right after birth. If you are trying to teach global solidarity and model that with your newborn, clothing can be an even bigger challenge. That is why I want to present to you some fair trade clothing items you can obtain in order to make your purchases more efficient as you see your newborn continue to grow.
First, leg warmers. Alpaca leg warmers, in particular, are a really stylish fabric and warm. The beauty of leg warmers is that they do not have to fit perfectly in order to be useful. As a parent you could buy a pair of leg warmers as a gift for the baby at birth and buy a pair big enough for the whole leg, and as the baby continues to grow and wear boots, then the leg warmers can be used more for their original purpose, as an extra layer on cold days.
Fair Trade Hats.
Second, you can buy hats. Fair-trade hats are durable and can often shape to a variety of sizes. The hand-stitched design of a fair-trade item gives a lot of flexibility to the hat. The flexibility of the hat means the newborn will get more use out of the hat than many other items that babies need.
Fair Trade Blankets.
Third, fair-trade blankets are a great item. Blankets are not worn by the newborn so you can create a blanket that is a little bit to start and then grow the blanket over time. In addition, you can also add more to the blanket as the newborn gets older as a timepiece for the child’s memories. Blankets are a great keepsake and buying a high-quality fair-trade blanket will give you the durability needed to have an item that can last a lifetime.
Best Fair Trade.
The best fair-trade items are those which can grow with your newborn to minimize as much as possible how much you have to spend on clothing for your newborn every couple of weeks. Clothing can be a great expense and trying to ensure that your clothing choices ensure a fair wage for all the workers in the production line is more difficult. I hope this guide will be a good starting point if you are thinking of investing in fair-trade clothing for your newborn.
For help finding fair-trade items look around your local coffee shops which are not national chains and some particular church communities. If you are in a larger city, you may also have specialty stores that specialize in fair-trade clothing. If you want to pursue a fair-trade wardrobe you can, but it will take a little more work. However, fair-trade clothing is a great legacy and lesson you can pass on to your children.
