There’s not much cuter than a newborn in a white onesie. I love Carter’s bodysuits because they’re well made and soft and just feel more substantial than cheaper ones. I brought booties, hats, mittens and socks along with us to keep baby warm and comfy.
Hygiene Items for Baby
I love The Honest Company and their lotion, diaper cream and sanitizer are not only better for baby but also smell lovely.
Going Home Outfit
I’ve had two winter babies and now a summer baby, and it was definitely far easier to dress the summer baby. When it comes to what your newborn wears home you can rely on a simple of rule of thumb:
When it’s cold: dress baby in the same layers you’re wearing, plus one more.
When it’s hot: dress baby in the same layers you’re wearing.
Additional note: the plus one when it’s cold can be a blanket, which I suggest using when you’re leaving the hospital as you’ll probably only spend a few minutes outside and the rest of the time in a warm car traveling home. You don’t want baby to get too overheated. Also, when it’s hot keep a thin blanket with you to cover baby if they seem to be getting too cool.
If you plan to cloth diaper you should throw a few of those in as well!
