Before we dive into the different types of accessories, let’s talk about what you need to look out for when you are buying one. These specifics transcend age or style and should be met if you want something that’s of high quality.

 

Features

Depending on the accessory you are getting, you have to be very watchful of the features it has. If you are getting something like a backpack, then this is very important. Good features will prevent early damage or wear and tear. Good features also mean the accessories will be more comfortable to use and more convenient. For example, a good backpack should have solid zips, enough pockets and strong and wide straps so they can rest on the shoulder without causing slouching.

 

Color

With accessories, color is usually one of the main standout features. Actually sometimes color can be an accessory in itself. If you get a headband for example in a bright color like yellow or red or in a  trendy color like mustard, it elevates whatever outfit it's combined with and draws attention. For a toddler this is a good thing as they love colors and a toddler in beautiful colors is never a sour site.

Bibs

Another way to accessorize your newborn is with their bibs.

Shoes

Shoes are another accessory that are also a necessity. Depending on the type of shoe, it could be what pulls the whole outfit together or it could stand out as the unique piece. Before buying a shoe for your baby or toddler, you must also confirm the comfort level of the heel inside the shoe. The heel should rest inside the shoe comfortably and it should not be pressed violently by the shoe’s interiors. And before you say “running shoes or sports shoes don’t have heels” yes they do, but they are made differently and are internal. When deciding a running shoe for your child, make sure that the shoes have a cushioned padding to support the heel. The heel should have some breathing space inside the shoes but they should not move too much. Excess movement of heels inside the shoes can cause damage and expose the feet to injuries. The ball of the foot should fit well inside the shoe’s widest part.
