Types of Newborn Baby Clothes

Buying clothes for a newborn baby can be exciting. With the many colorful and attractive designs available, it may be difficult to decide what a new baby really needs. Those designer jeans and sneakers may be the going thing for the fashion conscious, but unless you are looking to raise a future model, there are more appropriate items to meet your baby's needs.

The undershirt is the most important piece of clothing your baby needs. Although plain pullover or wrap-around undershirts are available, bodysuits are by far the most popular. Not only do these  function as a T-shirt to cover your baby's body, the back extends to cover the diaper and pulls between the legs and to snap closed in the front.  Bodysuits keep the back and belly covered regardless of how active your baby may be and cover the inevitable bare midriff or bare back between the outer shirt and the pants as baby wiggles and squirms throughout the day.  They also have the marvelous ability to catch any diaper leaks, protecting outerwear and bedding from those occasional accidents.

One-Piece Stretch Outfits
Newborns spend the majority of the day sleeping, but it is important to establish nighttime and daytime wear. Although your baby will not know it yet, this helps him to develop awareness between night and day.  The most practical piece of clothing is the one-piece stretch suit. It comes in a variety of colors and designs, making it both attractive and comfortable for baby. Because it has built-in feet, you do not need to worry about chilled feet.

The traditional sleeper provides comfort and warmth for active babies. In winter, the blanket sleeper assures you that baby will be warm even if he throws off his blankets in the night, but changing that diaper in the middle of the night is a bit of challenge.  Nightgowns with drawstrings at the bottom are convenient for both boys and girls as they allow you to loosen the strings and change the diaper without removing other clothing. Many mothers prefer these for the first few weeks when the baby wakes often for feeding and changing.

Socks and Booties
Socks and booties keep little feet warm. Even when the room feels comfortable to you, the baby is likely to have cold feet if they are bare. Keep an assortment of socks and booties to keep your baby comfortable.

Baby outfits come in all styles from tiny sweats with matching tops to short sets and dresses for summer. Go ahead and buy those cute little designer jeans if you must, but remember they aren't very practical and should be reserved for a special occasion.  Baby clothes are labeled with both age and weight. A newborn of 6 pounds cannot wear the same clothes as the 9-pound newborn. Always match the weight for the best fit.

Tips on Dressing a Baby

New parents find many things about babies to be overwhelming, including how to dress them. Baby clothing should be weather appropriate, soft, comfortable and washable. It should, of course, also be cute; however, the baby wearing it generally takes care of that. Learn how to choose practical and precious baby clothes that can stand up to spit up, survive diaper failures and still look good for the next baby in line.

Undershirts and Onesies
Many parents opt to put baby in a soft cotton undershirt or one piece garment. In warmer climates, the undershirt or onesie alone may serve as a practical and comfortable garment for everyday wear at home. Choose a kimono or side snap style tee shirt in the smallest size for your newborn, as these will not irritate the umbilical cord stump and are easy to put on a tiny baby. As a baby gets older, one piece undershirts that snap at the crotch are convenient and do not ride up. Look for soft 100 percent cotton one piece undergarments with a lapped neck opening for easy dressing. Choose colorful or printed baby one pieces if they will be as outerwear on warm days.

Pajamas and Gowns
Babies spend much of their time in their jammies, even during the day. Look for footed baby pajamas that unzip or snap nearly to the foot to make diaper changes easier. Soft cotton is ideal; however, good quality soft fleece can be a smart choice in cold climates. Baby gowns with an elastic hem are an ideal choice for newborns at home, allowing you to change diapers without manipulating tiny limbs. Add a fleece sleep sack at night for additional warmth without adding blankets in cold weather.

Tiny baby outfits are undeniably cute, ranging from soft cotton knits to itty-bitty jeans. Keep comfort in mind and save button down shirts and denim for walking babies. Soft knit leggings and cardigans worn over a baby one piece undershirt are an ideal baby clothing choice for both girls and boys. One piece rompers are another good choice when dressing a baby. In warmer weather, carry a lightweight cardigan or light blanket to account for air conditioning. In cooler temperatures, dress baby as you would yourself, but add an extra lightweight layer for warmth.

Socks, Shoes and Hats
Babies don't particularly need fashion accessories; however, socks and hats provide essential warmth for a tiny baby. Look for socks without binding elastic or ribbing for comfort. Knit baby booties may provide warmth without the inevitable sock loss that comes with a baby. If you do want to put shoes on your baby (perhaps to keep socks on those tiny feet), look for soft leather slippers with a fully flexible sole. A soft knit hat is an important part of a newborn's wardrobe, while older babies may need hats for warmth or sun protection.
