Clothes for premature babies: how to choose them?
Several factors are to be taken into account before any purchase. Indeed, a child born prematurely:

– is more prone to the cold because of a lesser presence of body fat, it is thus advised to superimpose several layers of clothing;
– has sensitive skin, so clothes should be chosen in soft materials and washed with a detergent for sensitive skin.
