You are pregnant and want the very best for your child. And you want to be sure that you have enough newborn clothes. But what do you actually need? Noppies is here to help with the hints and tips below, on buying newborn clothes and kitting out your new baby. It's tricky enough already!
Newborn clothes, buying baby's first outfit.
Let's start at the beginning. As soon as your baby is born, you'll dress him or her in their ‘first outfit’. Of course, it has to be a beautiful outfit but there are a few other things you need to consider. Babies are not very good at regulating their own body temperature straight after birth. So make sure that their first outfit is warm enough and includes: a soft romper-suit (with long or short sleeves), a long-sleeve top, a cardigan, trousers, socks and a hat. Would you prefer a one-piece outfit? Then go for a romper-suit with long sleeves instead of the long-sleeve top. You must also consider the quality of the fabric, its softness and the material. Select a fine knitted fabric, soft cotton/jersey or a blend of wool and cotton. Then you'll be fine. In terms of size, we would usually advise size 50 but this does depend on the size of your newborn. Noppies has newborn clothes from size 44 so even if your baby is a little smaller, we have a suitable outfit. Below is a selection of Noppies' newborn clothes that are ideal as a first outfit. All of the items match. So mix & match!
Newborn clothes, what do you need?
In addition to the first outfit, your newborn baby will also need plenty of other newborn clothing. You will usually receive plenty of newborn clothes as gifts so you are advised to buy a range of basics.
As your basic wardrobe, you could buy (in sizes 50/56):
- 6 rompers
- 6 long-sleeves
- 2 cardigans
- 2 baby outfits
- 6 pairs of trousers
- 4 pairs socks
- 2 hats
