Babies need clothes of course and if you haven’t had much to do with them you may wonder what the best types of babywear to get. One that most parents seem to find good is the all in one body suit or romper suit. These are easy to put on small babies and ensure there are no draughty gaps around the baby’s middle. Sleepsuits are similar and designed for the baby to wear at night.
Surprisingly, hats gloves and socks or bootees are also popular because parents know that babies need to keep warm and gloves can also help to protect your baby from scratching themselves by mistake.
However, babies should not be overheated either, so it can be a good idea to dress them in layers, then you can take off or put on according to the temperature. T-shirts and vests can be both practical and attractive, and are designed to be easy to put on and take off a baby.
You may think that items such as knitted cardigans and shawls are old-fashioned and no longer would be much liked, but they can also be useful when you are dressing your baby in layers.
You will probably receive as baby gifts some first size baby clothes, so it might be a good idea to wait a bit before buying your own and then getting the next size up.
There is a good mix of modern and older fabrics and clothes for babies these days, so you can mix and match to suit your choices and lifestyle.
