Best Baby Clothes for 2024

If you’re a new parent tempted to buy every adorable baby onesie, bodysuit or piece of knitwear you see, you are not alone. However, it’s worth remembering that bubs will grow fast and quality is more important than quantity, so here are some of the best baby clothes for 2024 courtesy of Metro Baby.

Our top baby clothing picks for 2024

Every item of baby clothing in the Metro Baby collection has been hand-selected. Our top baby clothing picks for 2024 are made from natural fibres such as 100% certified organic cotton and other soft, breathable fabrics that babies love.

Newborns are totally reliant on parents and carers for creating a comfortable environment. The best baby clothes provide warmth and protection from the elements during their first weeks and months. Explore baby clothing manufactured with baby-safe fabrics and fastenings for total protection and peace of mind.

Best clothes for newborns

The focus will be on your health and the health of your baby straight after giving birth but it won’t be long before you and your baby are ready to show off to the world. It’s a good idea to plan ahead with a baby wardrobe for the first few months of life. Here is a basic list of baby clothes worth owning.


Choose products that have reasonably wide head openings that slip on easily and loose leg fittings that allow movement and breathability.


Check out options that have snaps at the shoulders and also under the crotch to avoid the undershirt riding up uncomfortably.


Enjoy happy times during your baby’s formative months with daytime, night time pyjamas that can be worn anytime around the home.


Choose soft, comfy materials. For classic dress-up style check out tops that button in the front.


Your baby won’t need shoes until he or she starts walking, but cute socks or booties are essentials in the meantime.


Think broad-brimmed sun hats for outdoor adventures and soft caps that cover the ears for the cooler months.


What to look for

The focus is on care and protection of your little one, but you will naturally want your bubs to look cute and gorgeous all dressed up in their new outfit. Here are a few important things to look for when buying clothes for your precious baby.

  • 100% certified organic cotton or natural fibres
  • Soft fabrics designed for easy movement
  • Machine washable; Organic dyes and non-toxic inks

Metro Baby clothes stand out from the competition for all the right reasons. As a specialist baby product retailer, we focus on highest-quality clothing at prices regular Australians can afford. Your little one can show off in clothes that are:

  • Made by leading Australian and international brands
  • Made to highest safety standards
  • Made with breathable fabrics that are gentle on the skin
  • Made with accessible openings for fast on/off changing

Tips for buying baby clothes

Once you have your first child, you will realise that almost everyone is an expert regarding baby clothing and baby care. The enthusiasm is appreciated, even if the suggestions may at times be misguided, so here are a few general tips to get you started on your quest for the perfect baby clothes.

  • Fabrics: Choose soft and breathable fabrics such as 100% organic cotton. For cooler weather, consider fleece clothing. Avoid unfinished seams or scratchy tags that might irritate your baby.
  • Sleepwear fabrics: Safety is the number one priority, so purchase flame-resistant pyjamas and bedding items. Your peace of mind is worth it.
  • Fasteners: Experiment with fasteners to see which ones close and open easily. Avoid troublesome zippers if possible as they have a tendency to pinch when parents or carers are in a hurry.
  • Buttons and Trim: Test the buttons on your baby’s clothes to ensure they are secure. Avoid clothing with a fringe or trim that can choke or get tangled.
  • Layering: Make sure not to over-bundle your little one with too many clothing layers. Babies can quickly get too hot, uncomfortable or dehydrated. Dress your newborn in the same amount of layers as yourself, then add an extra light layer for optimum baby comfort.

Take the time to pre-wash new baby clothing before showing off the outfit on your little darling. You won’t require specialty detergent, although an unscented mild detergent is advisable.

Popular onesies and bodysuits at Metro Baby

Whether a baby is born in summer or winter, your newborn baby’s wardrobe should include a range of styles for adapting to changeable weather. Within three months your little one will be ready for a new set of baby clothes so it’s a good idea to explore clothing that can grow with your baby.

Onesies are practical, cute, and a great way to ensure your baby is warm and comfy. Onesies won’t ride up, slip off or bunch, and they are adorable. You can also keep little legs warm with baby leggings, tights or pants made from soft cotton or fleece.

If you’re planning ahead prior to giving birth and you don’t wish to know if you’re having a baby boy or baby girl, you can consider unisex baby clothing colours and designs. For co-ordinated head to toe appeal, check out baby gift packs such as:
