The quickest to change baby clothes- take them on and off at high speed!
Baby Vegan wore baby-grows and pram suits with a two-way zip until they were a toddler, since zips were so much quicker than poppers. Built-in socks meant we didn't lose socks, and in the Wondersuit they can be turned out for barefoot walking/ crawling practice. Wearing a full- body suit meant there was no tummy or ankle flesh flapping out making Baby Vegan cold. Baby also wears a zipped hoodie. The hood means we don't lose hats, and it doubled as reins or a sleep mask. The zip makes it easier to take on and off. Baby previously wore vests with less bottom poppers, and folds at the shoulders so as they can pull up or down more easily.
Once Baby Vegan's legs grew longer they started to wear trousers with their training pants, as this is easier for the baby toilet training. I waited until their trousers stayed around their ankles when pulled down.
The Babygrow by Boody has a two- way zip, built-in feet, and fold over mittens. It is made from organic, bamboo and comes in neutral tones. The Wondersuit by Bonds at John Lewis has a two- way zip, and fold over openable feet and mittens. They can be neutral or gendered in colour. The company ha an ethical statement.
Vegan children's coats, gloves and scarfs
What is a vegan kid's coat?
Coats are sometimes made from wool, but a vegan coat is not. Ideally it is sustainably and ethically sourced too. The coats here are recycled and waterproof. La Redoute and Marks and Spencer have more recycled, water repellent coats in black for school.
Recycled snowsuits, recycled pramsuits and recycled overalls
A waterproof if good for an accident prone toddler who often falls in puddles. The suit helps to keep the water from going up their shirt. You can find recycled, waterproof overalls in: Kite at Ethical Superstore, Polarn o. Pyret, Muddy Puddles, Frugi,
Recycled kids waterproof trousers
Once a child become better at walking, a waterproof coat and trousers combination makes it easier for taking them for a wee. On the other hand, as they older they also wee less. You can get recycled waterproof trousers from: Polarn o. Pyret, Muddy Puddles, Frugi, Craghoppers and Hawkshead.
Here as well are some water resistant gloves, mittens, and neck warmers.
After much consideration, I bought myself small Vaude Kuri Gloves.
Baby wears the duck t shirt whenever it is clean, and will often pull it out of the washing machine and wave it at me.
