How To Keep Your Baby's Skin Hydrated With Wicking Cotton Onesies
When your baby is born and you've been in the hospital for a few days, you'll notice very quickly how itchy and dry his or her skin can get. This is why we need to make sure that their clothes are made out of something that'll keep them feeling as frescoed as possible! The article highlights different fabrics and the benefits of each, so take the time to learn what kind of fabrics infants need within a few short minutes.
What is Wicking Cotton?
Wicking refers to the process of moving sweat, moisture and heat away from the skin and through the fabric of a garment. By creating a space between the fabric and skin, air can circulate freely causing evaporative cooling. In hot weather, this can be a lifesaver!
While most shirts and pants are made with wicking fabrics, you can also enjoy some benefits by dressing your baby in cotton onesies. Cotton is lightweight and breathable so it will keep your baby cool and comfortable in warm weather. Plus, it absorbs sweat so you won’t need to worry about your baby getting wet or uncomfortable in the heat.
Baby Types Cotton vs. Wicking
Cotton onesies have been around for centuries, so they’re known to be the safest option for baby’s skin. However, some parents are starting to turn to wicking cotton onesies because they believe that the fabric will help keep their babies’ skin hydrated.
Wicking cotton onesies work by drawing moisture away from the baby’s skin and towards the inside of the shirt. The sweat and moisture can then be trapped in the fabric and eventually released as vapor, which helps to keep your baby cool and comfortable. There are a few things that you need to know before purchasing a wicking cotton Onesie:
-Wicking Cotton Onesies Work Best When Worn as a Second layer Over another Shirt
-Moisture Isn’t Released Quickly Enough To Be Effective In Hot Weather
-They Are More Expensive Than Traditional Cotton Onesies
If you are looking for an option that is safe for your baby and will help them stay cool and comfortable during hot weather, a wicking cotton Onesie is definitely worth considering.
How to Apply Onesies
There are a few ways to keep your baby's skin hydrated using wicking cotton onesies. Some parents simply wet the shirt before their child wears it, others use a spray bottle of water on the go. Personally, we prefer to use a misting system with our onesie. Simply fill up a spray bottle with room-temperature water, then add two-thirds of an ounce of Germ-X Germicidal Solution (available at most grocery stores). Mist the baby's onesie every two hours throughout the day. The Germ-X will kill any odor-causing bacteria and keep the onesie moist and comfortable for your little one.

Once the bodysuit is around the baby’s neck, remove your hands from the area and direct your attention to the sleeves. Gently pull the baby’s arms through each of the sleeves and then pull the entire garment down the baby’s body until you reach the snaps.
Do's and Don'ts of Onesies
Wicking cotton onesies are often recommended to help keep babies' skin hydrated. Here are some tips for keeping your baby's skin healthy and wrinkle-free:
DO choose onesies made of soft, wearable cotton. These fabrics act as natural wicks, helping to keep baby's skin moist and comfortable.
DON'T overthink it when it comes to choosing the right kind of onesie. A basic cotton onesie will do the trick just fine. Avoid anything with tight seams or snaps that could cause irritation or chafing.
DO make sure your baby is always kept cool and comfortable. This includes ensuring they're clothed in lightweight, breathable clothing during hot weather months. When temperatures drop at night, put them in a comfortable one-piece sleeper like an Onesie Sleep Sack to help them sleep cooler and more naturally.
DO avoid using fabric softeners or cleaning products on your baby's clothing because they can be harsh and cause irritation or dryness. Instead, use a mild soap and water or allow the items to air dry naturally.
DON'T towel dry babies' bodies excessively because this can cause moisture loss from their skin. Wring out your garments instead and allow them to air dry on the line.
DON'T avoid getting caught in the rain, but do arrive home safely after being outside! Wet babies are more susceptible to colds and other bacterial infections so make sure you're prepared with plenty of hand wipes and a change of clothes for your tiny geniuses.

Wick the cotton onesies with a light stream of air. This will help loosen excess sweat and humidity from the body, which will help keep skin moist.
Apply a light pore-clarifying cream or balm to the baby's skin once or twice a day. This will help minimize the appearance of pores and stop excess sebum production.
Purchase unscented, hypoallergenic baby soap that is gentle on the skin. Bathe the baby using lukewarm water and a mild soap. Avoid using harsh chemicals that can dry out delicate skin. Rinse off with cool water and pat dry.
