Bamboo wear is soft, light and ideal for the summer because of bamboo's amazing properties:
-Absorbent: Bamboo is highly absorbent and wicks water away from the body 3 to 4 times faster than cotton. In warm, humid weather, bamboo clothing helps keep baby drier, cooler, and more comfortable. Another advantage is that bamboo fabric doesn’t stick to the skin.
-Breathable and thermo-regulating.
-Antibacterial: Bamboo is naturally anti-bacterial and anti-fungal presumably because of a bacteriostasis agent unique to bamboo plants called, "bamboo kun," which also helps bamboo resist harboring odors.
-UV resistant: Bamboo fiber does have natural UV protection. According to the Suncare Research Laboratories, the UPF label rate is 15. The 100% bamboo fabric scored 18.3 on the UPF scale with 94.15% UVA block and 93.17% UVB block.
-Hypoallergenic: Bamboo's organic and natural properties make it non-irritating to a baby's sensitive skin.
For newborn favor long sleeves to protect their skin as much as possible from the sun. Use a blanket or cotton socks to cover little feet!
