Hey, new mom! The transition to parenthood is an incredibly exciting time, but a very tiring and busy one. With everything else on your plate right now, shopping for baby clothes might be the last thing you want to think about. Well, don’t worry! We’ll make shopping quick and easy for you. Whether you need to prepare for the hot and humid days of summer or get ready to bundle up in the winter, we have the essentials that will keep your baby comfortable, protected, and happy all year round!
In the summer it’s all about staying cool and comfortable with lighter, more freeing clothes. But remember, it’s also important to stay protected from the sun.
6 Onesies: Onesies are a staple for a newborn baby. Be sure to buy enough for your little one to wear (pretty much) every day.
7 Sleep Suits: Like onesies, sleep suits are an everyday item. You always need something cozy and comfortable for night time!
Sun Shade: These are great for a day out at the park or the beach. Your newborn can enjoy the nice weather without irritation from the sun.
2 Summer Hats: Another great way to stay cool and protected from the sun’s rays.
Also, Don’t forget sunscreen and insect cream to protect against the elements! Your baby’s soft skin is very sensitive and can get irritated or burned easily.
If you’re expecting around the winter time, getting clothes that cover up and keep warm is key, that much is a no-brainer. Something else to keep in mind, though, is that heavier clothes made with cotton don’t dry as easily as lighter fabric. When you’re winter shopping, make sure to get a bigger supply than you would in the summer so you always have dry clothes ready.
1 Snowsuit: These adorable suits will cover your newborn from head to toe, keeping them warm on the harshest of winter days.
3 Mittens: Keep those little hands warm. Get a waterproof pair so your newborn can have fun in the snow!
6 Bodysuits: A warm, everyday item perfect for the winter time.
3 Jackets: Similar to the snowsuits, but for a day that’s not quite as frigid.
4 Wool Hats: Comfortable and warm, wool hats are a must-have in the winter.
3 pairs of Booties: It’s important to keep extremities warm and protected from the cold. For the snowy weather, get a material that will keep feet dry– otherwise, go for something soft and snug like suede.
8 Cotton Socks: Some warm socks are the perfect way to finish off your baby’s warm and winter-friendly outfit.
2 Blankets: Great for extra warmth during a stroller ride on a cold day or cozying up on the couch at home.
Also, it’s a good idea to get extra baby oil for the cold weather. Applying a light layer of baby oil on the skin will help keep in body heat.
