1. Wash baby clothes before use
We would always recommend washing clothes for babies prior to use. Although we make sure that your personalised baby clothing order is as dust-free, clean and well taken care of, it is always a good idea to consider washing baby clothing before use no matter what. The reason being is that baby skin is very sensitive and can be easily irritated. Washing your baby clothing with a suitable detergent and fabric conditioner is our recommended first step.
2. Pick a non-biological detergent
The detergent and fabric condition you use to wash your baby clothes is also an important decision. There are so many detergents and fabric conditioners out there so finding the correct products can be difficult! However, we have a few recommendations. Firstly, avoid using biological detergents. As noted above, babies have very delicate skin and using biological detergents, which the enzymes in biological detergents can irritate. Go for a non-biological detergent instead as these are still highly effective but sensitive for the skin.
3. Use fabric conditioner for added softness
Want to keep your baby clothes soft as long as possible? We would recommend using a fabric conditioner when washing your baby clothes. A gentle fabric conditioner will keep your baby clothes soft for longer and also provide that extra comfort your baby deserves!
4. Turn down the heat
It might be tempting to put your baby clothes in with your regular laundry but washing baby clothes on a high heat can be damaging to the clothing. We would recommend washing your baby clothes at 30 or 40 degrees maximum. Washing your newborn clothing at 30 degrees is also better for the environment (and your monthly bills!).
5. How can I remove stains when washing baby clothes?
Removing stains from your baby clothes can often be a challenge as the baby is growing and learning! However, using a dab or two of a non-biological detergent should help. It's best to try and treat the stain straight away but we know this is not always so easy. If the stain does not come out using a little of non-bio detergent, we would recommend placing the baby clothes in the wash at 40 degrees opposed to 30 degrees to help fight the stain away.
We hope our guide on how to wash baby clothes will help you with your newborn laundry and allow you to spend more time making memories. If you are looking for new born clothing, baby clothing for boys, girls and personalised baby clothing, check out our products pages for more.

A Personalised Baby Grow
Personalised baby grows are super cute and the absolute perfect gift for any newborn. Try one with a cute cub design and the baby’s name or nickname and just watch the parents swoon over it. A baby can never have too many baby grows - they get changed several times a day due to accidents with food, and, well, nappy accidents (certainly not happy accidents). A personalised baby grow will be the cutest present for a baby, even if it does end up covered in baby food (or baby poop).
Embroidered Floral Denim Jacket
How about an embroidered, floral denim jacket? Christmas gift ideas for babies may be eluding you right now but just picture the baby in your life wearing an item so stylish and cute, complete with their name. Denim jackets on babies are super stylish and look great with dresses, tunics, and just about any other outfit. They’re great for day’s out, smart casual attire, and can be dressed both up and down. You really have a multi-purpose item when you have a denim jacket, and the same goes for babies.
A Personalised All In One
Babies and toddlers are already ridiculously cute, but imagine the cuteness overload when dressed in a personalised all in one designed to resemble a pure white fluffy bunny? This is one of the smartest gifts for babies during winter time, as it’ll keep them snug as a bug in a rug. The cute factor is just a huge bonus!
Denim dungarees are the perfect attire for the stylish baby. They can be worn with t-shirts underneath during the warmer months, and even jumpers underneath during winter (just be sure to get the right size!). Denim never ceases to look cool, even on smaller humans. Pairing denim dungarees with a pair of chunky boots and a cardigan is bound to keep them snug and the envy of all the other babies. Did somebody say style inspo?
A Personalised Traditional Rain Jacket
Traditional rain jackets are an iconic piece that will never, ever go out of style. Buying the baby or child in your life a personalised traditional rain jacket in red or yellow will be sure to make them the cutest kids out on the street. Perfect for pairing with a pair of matching wellies for rainy day walks and splashing in muddy puddles, this is a thoughtful gift for children that the parents will love! Plus, the yellow rain jacket could make a good addition to a certain ‘Georgie’ Halloween costume.
A Cosy Sweater
A personalised initial sweater is cosy and cute. This is a great gift for those ‘off duty’ days - yes, babies have them too! Buy it slightly oversized and it’ll look good with tights and leggings, plus, as they grow, it’ll still fit them and they can wear it with little denim jeans! Personalised kid's clothing always makes a great gift, even in comfortable pieces that baby or toddler can lounge about in.
If you’re in two minds about buying personalised children's clothing, don’t be. It always looks cute and stylish, and it’s suitable for babies of both sexes, so you don’t need to worry. Tormenting yourself over what to give parents with newborns takes up a lot of time and energy.
