Infants and young children’s skin is fragile. A slight excess of PH value, formaldehyde, etc. will cause allergic reactions. There are more security issues that need to be considered.

For example, some fabrics have excessive formaldehyde due to substandard dyes or substandard workmanship. Wearing them on the body will be harmful to the baby, and can cause cancer in serious cases. It is not alarmist. Simply put, only clothing that meets the safety standards for children's clothing can be used with confidence.
