Cute and Stylish Baby Clothing Sets and Packs
Clothing sets and packs make fantastic gifts for both parents and babies. From a grow suit and hat pack to a newborn hospital pack, to packs of multiples, clothing sets are an easy and cost-effective way to dress your baby, whether you have a singleton, twins or more!
What clothes you need for a newborn
It’s tempting to go overboard when it comes to dressing an adorable newborn, especially if it’s your first-born child, grandchild, niece or nephew. Most newborns spend a lot of time at home or bundled up in their pram or cot, so having multiple outfits isn’t practical or necessary. In general, a selection of basics like bodysuits, onesies, singlets, t-shirts, long-sleeved and short-sleeved tops and leggings, is all newborns need. Add oodles of socks and one or two special outfits and your newborn’s wardrobe is complete.
How many sets of baby clothing do you need?
How many baby clothing sets you need is entirely dependent on how often you (or baby) goes through clothing, as well as how often you do laundry. Roughly 6-8 outfits are a good place to start to cover you for days when your little one is particularly messy or for rainy days when laundry is difficult.
Clothing sizes explained
Generally, baby clothes are sized by age (i.e. 0-3 months) or number (i.e. 0000 for newborns or babies under 4kg), however, it is always a good idea to ensure you are getting the correct size by checking the weight and height corresponding to the specific brand’s size.
Kinds of clothes you need for your child
When buying clothes for your baby girl or baby boy there are a dizzying array of options. Here are just some:
● Bodysuits, rompers, jumpsuits, playsuits and coveralls
● Hoodies and cardigans
● Leggings, track pants and bloomers
● Dresses and pinafores
● Singlets, sleeveless tops, t-shirts and long sleeve tops
● Pyjamas and other sleepwear
● Accessories like beanies and headbands, and even fun items like tutus!
You can go wild buying every article of clothing you know your little one will look cute in, however, once you have the basics covered, try to resist buying too many items at once as babies quickly outgrow clothes.
Benefits of buying clothes in packs
Once you know the best style and fit for your baby, buying baby clothes in packs is a cost-effective, easy way to have multiple versions of the same item. Buying a pack, like a newborn baby hospital pack, can also be a great way to get everything needed for a particular occasion, in just one purchase.
How to make sure your newborn baby is warm
Layers are a good way to make sure your baby is kept warm. Keeping in mind that babies lose heat up to four times faster than adults and often lose the most heat from their extremities, beanies, socks and sometimes mittens are good options.
Clothing checklist for your newborn and toddler (summers vs. winter)
Once you have the essential, foundation pieces of your baby’s wardrobe (like onesies and basic tops and bottoms), it is easy enough to add items for different seasons. In summer, choose lighter fabrics like cotton and linen and dress your baby in short sleeve tops, shorts and dresses. Winter is the time for warmer fabrics like wool and adorable knitwear like cardigans, beanies and booties.
Fabrics to look out for
Natural fabrics like organic cotton are great for softness and breathability, while products containing synthetic fabrics like lycra offer the stretch to help keep babywear in good condition, for longer.
Quality and longevity of quality clothing
It’s important to find the right balance between buying a brand that offers quality while also finding clothing that is sturdy enough to withstand frequent washing, scrubbing and stain remover application.
Washing baby clothes
Due to a baby’s sensitive skin, it’s best to wash baby clothes separately from others and with baby laundry detergent. At the very least, you should use a gentle, non-scented detergent that contains fewer chemicals and dyes.
