Summer Essentials

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.

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.

Winter Essentials

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 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.

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.

There you go. Now you and your baby are ready for anything the weather throws at you! Happy shopping.
