Handling Cute Baby Clothes

Let’s face it, being a parent is tough. First time parents soon realize that taking care of a baby is a lot of work. Probably the most difficult part of being a parent is not really having any time for yourself. If your little one is awake, then you are watching them (even when they are asleep you are probably at least thinking about them). Being a parent is a full-time job that you never get to walk away from.

Being a parent is challenging, but rewarding. Although your newborn will cause you stress, sadness, and frustration, he or she will also bring you huge amounts of joy and happiness. Look for the little things about being a parent that make you happy; like buying your newborn some really cute baby clothes.

A baby in a cute outfit can bring a smile to anyone’s face. However, babies tend to get themselves dirty very often. Unfortunately, it is your job as the parent to try and keep the baby clean (a difficult task indeed). Washing baby clothes by hand takes a very long time. For this reason, it is a good idea to make sure that the clothing you buy is machine washable. Most baby clothing nowadays are machine ready, but you’ll still want to check before purchasing, especially when you buy something expensive.

Here’s a major timesaving trick when you are a new parent and you are feeling overwhelmed. Often times babies will get a stain on their onesie or whatever type of clothing they are wearing. If you simply wait and then throw the stained clothing in the laundry later, you will find that the stain is never fully removed. The obvious solution is to stop and scrub the stain when it occurs. However, this is time consuming and sometimes you just don’t have the energy to stop every few hours and scrub out your baby’s newest mess. In these situations, you can set up a large bucket of water and detergent somewhere. The larger the bucket the better. When your baby does something that stains their clothing, simply throw the outfit into the bucket of water and detergent. Water has amazing corrosive abilities and over time it will erode the stain. Then, when you are ready, simply put the baby clothing through the normal washing cycle. This is a great way to keep your baby’s clothes clean without having to scrub every few hours.

Life as a parent is difficult, but when our babies are in cute baby clothing, it just seems to make life enjoyable. Trying to keep all of your baby’s clothes is difficult, but if you have a bucket of water and detergent set apart somewhere, you will save some time. And we all know that as parents, we just wish we had more time.

Welcome

Apart from just being a great place to shop, I was hoping that this site could turn into an online community. To achieve this, I decided to start a blog on the site. I hope to be posting regularly on the blog. And I hope that you will feel free to comment below.

Starting a website or a blog is a funny thing. You spend a lot of time setting it up and thinking of ideas that will hopefully be helpful to someone, but you have no idea if anyone will ever read what you have to say. I really love the baby clothes on this site, but I have no idea if anyone will ever even see them. I can only hope that others will somehow find their way to the site and that they will enjoy some of the same things that I do.

Are You about to Start Something New in Your Life?

Maybe you, like me are about to embark on a new adventure. What is it about starting that is so scary? For me, it is the fear of failure. I’ve been fairly successful in life, but I’ve also made a lot of goals that I never reached. Every time I start something new I think to myself “Am I going to stick with it? Or am I going to stop after a couple of weeks?” Here’s to sticking with it on my baby clothes website!

A Quote and an Invitation to Join Me

Here is a quote I like about starting and goal setting by Charles Jones. He says, “Everyone has a success mechanism and a failure mechanism. The failure mechanism goes off by itself. The success mechanism only goes off with a goal. Every time we write down and talk about a goal we push the button to start the success mechanism.”

Join me in talking about your goals by posting your goals in the comment box below.

My Goal: Sell the best baby onesies (and other clothes) on the Internet.
