2. Kimono Tops
These are by far the EASIEST newborn clothes. They keep your baby’s chest and arms warm and give you instant nappy change access. In those early weeks in particular speed and ease at night are a savior. At this age, your baby is mostly still wrapped so the legs being uncovered is less of an issue. Of course in warmer climates and seasons they are perfect. You can get some basic options for sleepwear and of course, there are many super-beautiful creations. In addition, this style reduces contact with a baby’s still sensitive umbilical cord area.
Furthermore, while you and your newborn are still getting acquainted with dressing, having tops that do not have to pull over your baby’s face over can be a great advantage.
3. Baby Socks
Picture baby’s socks as teeny weather controllers. Irrespective of what month your infant was born, having adequate socks makes it easier to ensure those teeny baby feet stay warm, whether it is artic inside or cold outside courtesy of different kinds of air conditioners.
Also, socks can help in creating an outfit out of anything, even though your baby is sporting only a bodysuit. Of course, newborns are notorious for kicking their socks away, thus always look for options with solid elastic tops.
Pajamas, footie, sleepers – whatever you wish you call them, simply know that infants can do a lot more than sleep in those comfy one-piece looks. A sleeper is good for keeping your infant cozy and warm on outings or during a fun time at home, and they also make for simple diaper changes.
Always stock up some of these, because you will probably be going through at least one every night.
5. Booties and pajamas
Irrespective of the time of the year your baby is born, they would sleep, on average, eighteen (18) hours every day. They must be comfortable.
For warmer weather: select thin cotton, bag sleepers, and one-piece sleepers; these are similar to nightgowns, but they feature a closure across the down part.
For colder weather: select heavier-weight footy pajamas, also known as blanket sleepers.
Baby clothing is one of the best ways to give your newborn a pleasant appearance. As a parent knowing the important clothes for your new baby is very vital. It helps in making your newborn feel special and unique.
