What clothes do I need for a baby?

7th September 2018

Everywhere you look you see the cutest items out there but are they practical? Necessary? Ever going to be worn?

We are heading towards autumn, which means the leaves will be falling off the trees, mornings and evenings crisp and chillier and the long nights drawing in. Whilst we still have the odd lovely day we also need to think about dressing our little ones in warmer pieces.

Long Sleeved Deer Collection Vest

From now to the end of winter It’s all about layering and keeping them warm but cool. Let’s start with a vest or t shirt. Its close to your baby’s skin so we want it to be soft and gentle. It needs to be practical enough for a nappy change but we also want it visually cute.

When I had my babies, I wanted to keep them in a sleepsuit for as long as I could because they just look so lovely and cuddly. You could either have a matching print to your vest or go totally different and have clashing prints. I love a clashing print, Sarah loves a matching print.

Now my two are toddlers (the eldest about to start school) I want them in clothes that are practical enough for a quick change if needed but comfy enough for them to be running and playing in. I put mine in leggings as they are brilliant for movement, have no restrictions, easy to wash and they retain their shape. Also a lightweight sweatshirt, warm enough over a t-shirt but not too hot. This will also be comfy and lightweight enough not to sweat under a coat in the winter.

Come bedtime I love those babies in a fresh and soft and lovely smelling baby grow. My two now wear lovely cosy pj’s. They look adorable snuggling up on the sofa, smelling of strawberry bathwash, with their cups of milk, teddy bears, bare feet, and damp hair after bathtime. It’s my favourite time of the day as they are so chilled and relaxed. Now we have that covered; why not head over to our shop and have a look at our pieces, they are super soft and made from 100% cotton.
