Cotton is one of the softest and most commonly used materials for baby clothes. It offers a gentle and comfortable texture against a baby's delicate skin. Another soft option is bamboo fabric, known for its luxurious softness similar to silk or cashmere. Both cotton and bamboo are popular choices due to their softness, breathability, and suitability for sensitive skin.
When selecting fabric for your baby, prioritize soft natural fibers like organic cotton, bamboo, and linen that are gentle on delicate skin. Breathable fabrics like cotton and bamboo also help regulate body temperature to avoid overheating. Ensure any synthetic fabrics are OEKO-TEX certified free of harmful chemicals. Choose lightweight, flexible materials that allow movement. Stay away from scratchy synthetics and stiff denim. Read labels carefully and learn fiber properties. Touch test for softness. The top priorities are softness, breathability, flexibility, and purity.
