It took a lot of thought on how I would execute including baby items. The dilemma I was experiencing was having to make many size variations and color options available for immediate purchasing. Another issue was possibly making items that won't sell and will sit in my inventory for years to come.
I came across a recommendation to create multiple custom made baby items for a customer. Including a photo-shoot outfit, and dress sets. It comes to my mind that I don't necessarily need to keep a high inventory of these items to sit. The order don't take too long to make. Turn around time is one week from the date of order.
Future custom orders I receive for a baby, will be shown in my shop. I will need measurements specific to each item to ensure a perfect fit for baby which will include a form to fill out for each item.
