BABY CLOTHES - for the first months


Welcoming a new baby into your life is an exciting journey filled with joy and anticipation. Here to guide you through the essential baby clothes you'll need for those precious first months. Our heartfelt selection ensures your little one stays cozy, stylish, and oh-so-comfortable.


  • Essentials for everyday wear, consider stocking up on 7-10 onesies or bodysuits in various sizes.
  • Choose or select items that are made from gentle and tender materials, ensuring comfort and coziness for the baby. Breathable fabrics like cotton or bamboo keeps your baby comfy all day long.
  • Mix and match short-sleeved and long-sleeved options to suit different weather conditions.


  • Choose soft, stretchy bottoms that allow for unrestricted movement and keep your baby comfortable throughout the day. Include 3-5 pairs of leggings or trousers in your baby's wardrobe.
  • Leggings or trousers provide an extra layer of warmth and protection, keeping babies cozy and shielded from the elements, whether it's chilly weather or rough surfaces during playtime.
  • Leggings or trousers with elasticized waistbands simplifies the dressing process, making it convenient for parents during diaper changes or when getting their little ones ready for the day.


  • Choose cozy sleepwear that keeps your little one snug and warm during naptime and bedtime. Have around 4-6 sleepers on hand.
  • Choose materials that allow air to pass through easily, keeping the baby comfortable and preventing overheating. This is particularly important for baby clothing to ensure that the baby does not become too hot or uncomfortable while wearing them. Examples of breathable fabrics include cotton, bamboo, and linen.
  • Choose sleepwear that fits snugly to reduce the risk of entanglement or suffocation. Avoid clothing with loose strings, buttons, or embellishments that could pose a choking hazard.
  • Consider the temperature of your baby's sleeping environment when selecting sleepwear. In warmer weather, lightweight and breathable fabrics are ideal, while thicker materials provide extra warmth during colder months.


  • Keep those tiny toes warm with 5-7 pairs of soft socks or booties.
  • Choose items that have textured or rubberized material on the soles to provide traction and prevent slipping. This is particularly important for items like socks, booties, or shoes worn by babies and toddlers who are learning to walk or are active and exploring their surroundings. The non-slip grips help to keep them stable and reduce the risk of accidents or falls on slippery surfaces such as hardwood floors or tiled areas.
  • Consider purchasing a variety of colors and styles to mix and match with different outfits.


  • Protect your baby from the elements with 2-3 cozy hats and mittens.
  • Look for hats with adjustable straps and soft linings for a snug and comfortable fit.
  • Mittens with gentle cuffs keep your baby's hands warm and prevent scratching during those early months.


  • 1-2 jackets or coats depending on the climate and seasons in your area.
  • Choose jackets and coats made from durable, weather-resistant materials such as polyester or nylon. These materials help shield your baby from wind, rain, and snow, keeping them dry and warm during outdoor activities.
  • Choose jackets and coats with attached hoods to provide extra protection for your baby's head and neck. A lined hood helps keep their ears warm and shields them from cold winds.
  • Consider the climate and season when selecting jackets and coats for your baby. Look for lightweight, breathable jackets for transitional seasons and insulated coats for colder weather.


  • 1-2 sweaters or cardigans for layering.
  • Choose soft, breathable materials like cotton or knit blends that are gentle on your baby's delicate skin. Avoid materials that may cause irritation or discomfort.
  • Select sweaters or cardigans that fit your baby comfortably with some room for movement. Avoid options that are too tight or restrictive, as they may cause discomfort or restrict your baby's movements.
  • Consider the climate and season when selecting sweaters or cardigans for your baby. Look for thicker, heavier materials for colder weather and lighter, breathable fabrics for warmer months.

SNOWSUIT & BUNTING BAGS (for colder climates)

  • 1 snowsuit or bunting bag.
  • If you live in a colder climate or plan to be outdoors in chilly weather, invest in a snowsuit or bunting bag to keep your baby cozy and warm. Look for options with insulated padding and waterproof or water-resistant materials to protect against snow and moisture.
  • Choose snowsuits and bunting bags made from waterproof or water-resistant materials to protect your baby from snow, sleet, and moisture. A durable outer layer with a waterproof membrane or coating helps keep your baby dry and comfortable during outdoor activities.


  • Aim for 5-7 outfits or sets, including tops, bottoms, and accessories, for added versatility.
  • Many baby outfits and sets include multiple pieces that can be mixed and matched with other items in the baby's wardrobe. This versatility allows parents to create various outfit combinations, maximizing the use of each clothing piece and getting more mileage out of their purchase.
  • Pre-coordinated outfits and sets save parents time and effort by eliminating the need to mix and match individual clothing pieces. With sets, parents can quickly dress their baby in a complete ensemble without worrying about finding matching items.


  • Keep your baby cozy during naptime with 2-3 soft blankets or swaddles.
  • Blankets provide warmth and comfort to your little one, especially during naps or bedtime. Swaddles, in particular, mimic the feeling of being in the womb, which can soothe newborns and promote better sleep.
  • When choosing blankets and swaddles for your baby, opt for soft, breathable fabrics that are gentle on their delicate skin. Look for options that are easy to clean and maintain, and consider investing in a variety of sizes and thicknesses to suit different weather conditions and occasions. With the right blankets and swaddles, you can ensure that your baby feels safe, cozy, and loved around the clock.

SUN HATS (for warmer climates)

  • 1-2 sun hats with wide brims.
  • If you live in a warmer climate or plan to be outdoors in sunny weather, choose sun hats with wide brims to provide shade and protection from the sun's harmful rays.
  • Look for sunhats crafted from lightweight and breathable fabrics such as cotton, linen, or moisture-wicking materials. Breathable fabrics allow air circulation and help keep your baby cool and comfortable, even on hot and sunny days.
  • Choose sunhats made from UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) fabric or materials that offer built-in sun protection. UPF-rated sunhats are specially designed to block a significant portion of the sun's UV radiation, offering superior sun protection for your baby's delicate skin.
  • Consider sunhats with water-resistant or quick-drying properties, especially if you plan to use them near water or during water play activities. Water-resistant sunhats help repel moisture and dry quickly to keep your baby comfortable and protected.
  • Look for sunhats that are foldable or collapsible for easy storage and transport. Packable sunhats are convenient for travel and outings, allowing you to protect your baby from the sun's rays wherever you go.


  • Complete your baby's ensemble with 5-7 bibs, headbands, or bows.
  • Choose bibs with waterproof backing to keep clothes clean during feeding time.
  • Remember to choose accessories that are safe and comfortable for your baby to wear, and always supervise them when they are wearing any items that could pose a choking hazard. With the right accessories, you can enhance your baby's outfit while keeping them comfortable, stylish, and protected.



  1. Refer to Size Charts: Most baby clothing brands provide size charts that correlate measurements (such as height, weight, and age) with corresponding clothing sizes. Refer to these size charts to determine the most suitable size for your baby.
  2. Consider Growth Spurts: Babies grow quickly, so it's wise to choose clothing with a bit of room to accommodate growth. Opting for slightly larger sizes or items with adjustable features, such as elastic waistbands or adjustable straps, can ensure a comfortable fit for longer.
  3. Prioritize Comfort: Soft, breathable fabrics like cotton are ideal for baby clothes, as they are gentle on delicate skin and provide comfort throughout the day. Avoid clothing with rough seams, tags, or embellishments that could cause irritation.
  4. Check for Stretch: Stretchy fabrics like jersey knit or spandex blends can offer flexibility and ease of movement, making them suitable for active babies. Look for clothes with stretchy components, especially in areas like cuffs, waistbands, and neckline openings.
  5. Consider Layering: For versatility and adaptability to changing temperatures, consider layering clothing pieces. This allows you to add or remove layers as needed to keep your baby comfortable in different environments.
  6. Assess Fit: When trying on clothing, check for proper fit around the neckline, sleeves, waist, and leg openings. Clothing should fit snugly but not too tight, allowing for ease of movement without being restrictive.
  7. Account for Diaper Changes: Keep in mind that certain clothing items, such as onesies or bodysuits, will need to be easily accessible for diaper changes. Look for clothing with snap or button closures at the crotch for convenience.
  8. Check Accessories Fit: For accessories like hats, mittens, and socks, ensure a snug but not constricting fit. Accessories should stay in place without being too tight, and adjustable features like chin straps or elastic bands can help achieve the perfect fit.
  9. Reassess Regularly: Babies' sizes can change rapidly, especially during the first year of life. Periodically check your baby's clothing and accessories to ensure they still fit comfortably, and size up as needed to accommodate growth.
