Shopping for baby flower headbands and baby hair clips is not only interesting but also overwhelming. The breathtaking variety is just too difficult to resist. Do not stop yourself and buy headbands to your heart’s content. Nevertheless, you need to make the right choice so that not only your baby enjoys wearing the item but also your money is well spent.
What to consider before making the purchase
First consideration is the baby's comfort while she is wearing the headband. Your little one cannot yet express herself and let you know how much uncomfortable the headband is. However, you can easily gauge her discomfort by way of her mannerisms. If after wearing the headband, she becomes quiet then may be the pressure of the item is too much for her. Similarly, babies, who are extrovert, may start crying aloud after wearing a painful headband. Some girls are even more expressive and they might just try to get rid of the item by pulling at it.
Second point worth considering is the determination of the size of the headband. The size of head varies and you need to know the current size of her head before buying baby flower headbands from the store. Many times, mothers buy loose headbands believing that they will ensure more comfort for the baby. Such headbands risk sliding off or they assume an awkward position, sometimes covering her eyes, making her cranky. Hence, you should make sure, when your little one wears a band, it should comfortably settle on her head and even after she moves around and plays with her toys, the item should not lose its place.
Measure your girl's head and make an informed choice
There is no need to experiment and cause discomfort to the child. Use a measuring tape and while she is playing with her head still, wrap the tape around her head in the same way as the baby flower headbands would fit. Now, note down the measurement. Since most headbands have at least one-inch of elasticity, deduct an inch from the measurement. The resulting figure is the ideal size of baby flower headbands for her. Nowadays, for enhancing the baby's comfort level, headbands made of extra stretchy material are available. If you happen to lay hands on any such baby flower headbands, then you can get one that is 2 inches shorter than the size of her head.
What materials are used to make headbands?
While you will find a good variety of baby hair clips made of plastic and fabric, for the headbands mostly nylon and cotton microfiber are used. Nylon has the ability to stretch, which is a major plus point. It is also very convenient to handle. Cotton microfiber is better than nylon for a couple of reasons. First, it is softer and smoother to the touch, which makes it a safe choice for infants. Second, the fabric has better stretch ability than nylon. Therefore, your growing pretty princess can wear a cotton microfiber headband for long. Lastly, appearance of cotton microfiber stays anew, longer than that of nylon.
