Dressing little ones can be a huge headache, if your kids are anything like mine once they learn to speak they start to have opinions about clothes. Before that can be tough too, I always feel like I am engaging in a wrestling match when dressing my squirmy little ones. Besides the physical nature of dressing little kids it can be hard to find the balance between what mom wants the kids to wear and what they want to wear. Garanimals tried to create a solution to this problem buy creating a line of affordable mix and match clothing so no matter which top and bottom your little one grabs they will always match. So beyond having a wardrobe that is able to be mixed and matched here are a few tips for making getting dressed less stressful for everyone.
- Make clothes accessible. To help foster independence hang clothes on a low closet rack or put them in drawers or on shelves that your child can reach.
- Put away off limits items. Keep things like special occasion clothes and out of season items in a place kids can’t reach so you don’t have to fight the battle of why they can’t wear a swimsuit in December or a flower girl dress to the zoo.
- Only What Fits. Make sure the clothes they have to choose from fit, kids grow fast and once they decide on an outfit if it is too small they won’t care and you will be facing an unpleasant battle.
I spent the last few weeks trying on kids clothes and swapping out wardrobes while we put away summer and got out fall and it is exhausting, but worth every minute. Now I know my almost 3 year old can only put on seasonally appropriate clothes that fit and that means one less battle I have to fit.
Kids grow fast and that can really blow your budget so try to make smart purchases that would include items that clean up easy (100% cotton) so kids can be kids and not worry about ruining things. Also pick clothes that are comfortable to move and play in making the active life of a child easy.

Founded in 172 my mom still talks about my Garanimals clothes and how easy it was to mix and match with the animals inside the clothes to help.
