We really want longevity out of our clothes. They shouldn't just last for Baobao. We want to pass them on to Xiaobao and possibly beyond, but I don't want to put Xiaobao in clothes that look like they've been worn a million times.
So we've decided to only buy clothes that last from now on. I may occasionally try different brands, but if they don't still look amazing after a handful of washes, I won't buy from them again.
Here are the 5 brands we have found that last:
Om Baby is run by a wahm in my local area. She is amazing - focusing her clothing specifically on ease of movement, comfort, cloth nappy fit and amazing prints. Baobao has been wearing her jungle print omsie for over a year now and it still looks brand new. Plus the bibs are bamboo backed, making them perfect for dribbly (or refluxy) babies.
The following two brands can be a little more hit and miss, depending on the item of clothing you get. Mostly I would use these for basics, such as vests, underwear, basic tops and leggings.
Polarn o Pyret is another Swedish brand that I love. Their leggings and basic tops are amazing. I found their dresses greyed quite quickly though.
Do you agree with the brands I have chosen to build Baobao's wardrobe around? What childrenswear brands do you recommend for longevity?
