How to Choose Children’s Clothing

Today we have Emma to write a guest post for us. Emma is the CEO at Kimi Dog, the wholesale children’s clothing company. She knows everything about children’s clothing.

Hi, I’m Emma Today I’m going to talk about how to choose children’s clothing.

When you have a baby, it seems that your baby is the most important thing in your life. You need to feed your baby, change your baby’s diapers, and your baby doesn’t seem to have a break for 24 hours. For many years to come, your child may be the most important thing in your life. Also, you need to buy a lot of things for your child. One of them is children’s clothing.

Your children’s clothes are different from your own, so you need to know how to choose clothes for your children.

You’ll know how to choose and how to save money on children’s clothing after reading this article. 

Let’s get started!

Comfort is the most important

For Kids, comfort is the priority. Your children will look great in slim shirts, but they also suffer from stiff collars. When choosing clothes for your children, choose loose casual clothes or activewear. These clothes not only comfortable but also meet the needs of children’s activities. Leggings are also a good choice for girls. They are tight but comfortable. 

What fabric should you choose

Choosing the right fabrics is not only about comfort but also about durability. Most kids love activities or sports. So think about what fabrics to choose for them to wear during activities and games. Parents all like natural fabrics, there is no problem with it. However, I wouldn’t say the synthetic fabric is a bad choice. What natural fabrics are suitable for children’s clothing? Cotton, linen, wool, and so on. These fabrics are natural and comfortable. If you want something more natural, you can go organic, but it’s also more expensive. Sometimes, though, synthetic fabrics are a good choice. Synthetic fabrics have many advantages that natural materials don’t have. So for some clothes such as hardshell jackets and jerseys, synthetic fabrics must be the better choice. Blended fabrics are also something you need to know. They are the best of both worlds. For example, Cotton/Polyester blends. With the breathability of cotton and the durability of polyester. And because of polyester is blended, it’s cheaper. In short, choose different fabrics for different purposes.

SCREEN TIME APP – CHILDREN’S BRAIN CHANGES BECAUSE OF EXCESSIVE TIME BEFORE SCREENS, ACCORDING TO STUDY

The brain of children who spend too much time before screens of smart devices or video games seems to be modified, according to a study by the National Institute of Health (NIH) released a few days ago by the CBS network.

In 21 research centers, the NIH began examining the brains of 4,500 children of 9 and 10 years old to know if the intense consumption of video games and the time they spend on the Internet influences their development.

The first results of this study with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) show significant differences in the brain of children who use smartphones, tablets and video games more than seven hours a day, explained one of the researchers, Gaya Dowling in the program “60 Minutes”.

The images showed a premature thinning of the cerebral cortex or cortex, which processes the information sent to the brain by the five senses.

The thinning of the cortex “is considered an aging process,” said the scientist, noting that it was not clear if this process is harmful. “We still do not know if it’s due to the time spent in front of the screens, or if it’s a bad thing,” he said.

Shopping for kids: The stress-free guide

As most adults will testify, nothing quite beats a touch of retail therapy. It’s something that most of us crave, but life responsibilities tend to mean that it doesn’t happen anywhere near enough as it should. When it comes to children, shopping doesn’t quite have the same appeal. Instead, it’s regarded as one of the most frustrating pastimes around – even if the experience is geared to their requirements!

Unfortunately, kids need clothes – and these shopping trips are a necessity. Today’s article is, therefore, going to focus on some of the best tips you can implement to ensure that the day is as stress-free as possible, while still ensuring that you come out of it with plenty of suitable garments for your little one.

There’s no one-fits-all rule

There’s no doubt that the internet shopping era has made life a whole lot easier. However, there is a debate as to whether this approach is really going to work when it comes to choosing appropriate kid’s clothes.

Unfortunately, not all brands are equal when it comes to size. What might be classed as suitable for a 5-year-old in one shop is more like a 3-year-old’s in another. It means that unless you know a brand inside-out, you need to ask your child to try most things on. It might mean a trip to the shops in Covent Garden or your local area of choice, but it will be worth the time.

The New Mojobot Available Now on Kickstarter

It may seem that board games are becoming a thing of the past, as most kids these days would rather play video games or apps. As parents, we can use this technology to help our kids learn and develop skills that they will be able to use in our tech-driven world.

The new Mojobot is the world’s first tangible coding robot and board game that makes it easy for adults and kids to learn the core principles of coding and robotics.

Mojobot is a multiplayer game where players compete to undertake Missions and earn star points. It is equipped with many features such as lights, sounds, sensors, motion, and actions. Mojobot can even pick up tokens, carry them around and deliver them to different locations. It allows kids to get away from the screens and have a hands-on experience learning a valuable skill while having fun at the same time. And the best part is that the whole family can enjoy it together – it’s great for ages 4-99+.

The Mojobot is available now for backing on Kickstarter. The Mojobot Basic Kit includes the Mojobot robot and the Main Console as well as the coding tags, cards, tokens, storybook, map, and charging cables. You also have the option to purchase the Mojobot Extension Kit which will get you an extension console, logic coding tags, additional cards, a book, and a paper origami box.

Managing a Major Move with Young Children

A major move can be really stressful for anyone. If you’d like to make it even more challenging, add a few young children to the equation. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to successfully complete a move, keep your children entertained and maintain a sense of peace. There are a few tips you’ll want to employ as you move forward. Consider these four.

1. Plan ahead.
You don’t need to hire someone to help you clean out boxes if you do it in advance. If you decide that you’d like to move in the next year, begin to declutter. Don’t wait until you’re two months away. Take time to go through boxes to throw items away and sell things. If you’re able to put yourself in a position to tackle one box a day, you’ll be in great shape. Wait until the kids go down to bed. Spend thirty minutes to an hour on one box, closet or area. You’d be surprised how much you can tackle within a few months when you dedicate a little bit of time each day. Plus, you would’ve done all of this while the children were asleep. Use your phone or a calendar to keep yourself on track.

2. Create an organized schedule.
When things begin to get a little hectic in the days before the move, find ways to create a schedule for the children. Most children (and adults) thrive on routines. Knowing this, create a schedule for them. Once they get out of school, give them different activities to work on each hour. If they decide that they’d like to spend more time on a particular task, this is fine. After all, the goal is to keep them occupied. Activities like painting, coloring and other arts projects are great for creativity. If your children love puzzles, set up a station for puzzles and popcorn. As dinnertime gets closer, they can enjoy dinner and a good movie. As you’re able to finish up your moving tasks, you can join them.
