New Baby Clothing Tips

  1. Don't buy too many clothes. You don't know how big your new baby will be and newborns grow very fast. You will also receive loads of clothes as gifts, or receive hand-me-downs from family or friends. Your baby will wear some outfits only once or twice
  2. If your friends or family give you clothes, ask them if they will want them back. If they so, make a note of who gave you what
  3. You'll need mits, babies like to scratch their face
  4. Outfits should be soft and easy to change - you'll be changing the baby several times a day
  5. You'll change the baby very often. Poppers are much easier than buttons
  6. Shoes are not necessary until the baby is near walking age
  7. You should have Cotton short-sleeve bodysuits for summer, wool/cotton mix for winter
  8. There are many types of sleepers: footed or not, short and long sleeve. Remember that poppers are much easier than buttons
  9. New parents usually receive loads of clothes for newborn babies, but your baby will outgrown them very fast. Ensure you ask family and friends for different sizes to last you for the first year
  10. A Layette is a complete set of clothing and equipment for a newborn
  11. Choose natural fibre nightgown if possible, wool or cotton
  12. You'll need a hat. Even more than grown ups, babies lose a lot of heat from their head
  13. Wash your receiving blankets very often
  14. Why not knit the clothes yourself?
  15. Find booties that your baby will not be able to get off during the night. Consider footed outfits
  16. Avoid buying a heavy and think crib blanket
