How Many Changes of Clothes Are Needed at Nurseries?
The Recommended Items to Get When Preparing for a Nursery
Mar 27, 2020 KIDS

Children and toddlers require two or three changes of clothing because their healthy romping leads to perspiration and staining. You’ll need at least six to seven sets of both innerwear and outerwear tops and bottoms because some sets will be in the wash. You’ll also need to stock pajamas for naps. These then are the items that you’ll want to get for a nursery and the features to look for when selecting them.

items that are easy to change in and out of and have simple designs
T-shirts and leggings are fantastic!



It’s normal (and in some cases required) practice to prepare separate tops and bottoms for a nursery, so that changing is easier. Occasionally, only the stained item, either the top or bottom, will be changed, so you (and your child) will be better off if the basic set of replacement attire includes simple T-shirts and leggings.

FILE 2: Basic set for nap time
Pajamas



At nap time, your child will be encouraged to change out of everyday wear and put on pajamas. This is so that your child gets into the habit of wearing pajamas when sleeping. Your child will also begin learning how to fold clothing unaided. Pajamas that have buttons that help keep tummies covered and that also have elasticated waists that can be adjusted to accommodate growth and body shape will come in handy.

Casual blouson



The mornings and evenings of early spring can still be chilly. You’ll be better off if you prepare an outerwear item, like a blouson, for wearing to the nursery and playing outside in. This blouson makes life easier. It can be easily pulled on because it opens at front. It fastens with snap buttons as well.

FILE 4: You can never have enoughLeggings



Bottoms inevitably get dirty because your child will play in sandboxes and in the dirt. Prepare many pairs so that your child will have a ready supply to change into. Leggings that are stretchy and easy to change in and out of are perfect for nurseries.

FILE 5: Protect still-delicate skin
UV protection wear



Ensure protection from UV rays is solid because babies and toddlers have skin that is more delicate than that of adults. UV rays increase in intensity from around the first week of May, before summer. Prepare items that provide protection from UV rays alongside the items you’ll be initially preparing for the nursery because some scrambling about and confusion are inevitable until you and your child become accustomed to the new routine.

FILE 6: You’ll want to get many
Socks that are easy to pull
on, but don’t come off easily


Socks quickly absorb the perspiration coming from the feet of toddlers and children to minimize moisture buildup inside footwear. This is important because children perspire heavily. You’ll want to get socks that have slip-resistant soles and are easy to pull on and take off. Prepare several additional pairs because some are inevitably going to slip off (or be pulled off) and lost.

Column: Prepare changes of clothes to accommodate
the unpredictable spring weather


There are going to be both chilly days and sweltering days in spring. Carefully consider the change of clothing for infants, whose thermal regulation is still underdeveloped. You won’t have to rush around later if you assemble mesh innerwear and short-sleeve items before your child begins going to a nursery.
Mesh items breathe well, so they’re ideal for unexpected temperature changes.



Word of Mouth


"I bought a set of three mesh sleeveless innerwear, and I dress my child in them at home every day during the summer! They’re reasonably priced, so they’re even easy on the wallet even when I bought a patterned set and a solid-color set! The fruit and floral patterns are cute, and UNIQLO’s fabric is great as I’d expected! I love how the tags are on the outside as well."
Housewife (aged 23)
5-month-old girl



FILE 7: Perfect for delicate skin
Cotton innerwear that’s ideal for the entire year



You’ll want to look at cotton mesh innerwear for babies because they’re gentle on the skin and they breathe well. The items of this series are so popular they’re winning over legions of new customers. Also consider the rib stitch model because it’s soft and it stretches well.

Word of Mouth


"I really recommend UNIQLO’s AIRism innerwear for babies! They dry immediately whether my baby perspires or splashes around in water. They come in several designs and colors. They’re machine washable and don’t lose their shape at all even after laundering every day! And they’re reasonably priced! It helps that I can buy them at UNIQLO, which has many stores."
Housewife (aged 25)
10-month-old boy


"The AIRism mesh fabric seems cool, and it dries quickly after my baby perspires or there’s some leakage. I like the simple design, which looks fine even when it shows through a white tee!"
Housewife (aged 25)
8-month-old boy


FILE 8: Indispensable after one try!
Consider AIRism for dealing with perspiration



AIRism items are tremendously popular as summer items. They also come in huge varieties for babies, toddlers, and kids. They excel at wicking and releasing moisture, so they remain silky to the touch even when your child perspires. Babies perspire heavily, so you’ll want to ready several AIRism items.
