Newborn clothes: shopping checklist

Dec 3rd 2014 at 2:23 AM

Few things are as cute as newborn baby clothes. A lot of new parents get tempted to buy everything that they come across. But babies grow quite fast, especially the first year. So, before you load your baby’s wardrobe with whole bunch of unnecessary items, here is a checklist to help you shop for your little one. Use this checklist to pick the right stuff for your baby and to prevent wasting your money.

  • You would need to change your baby’s clothes several times in a day so avoid buying complicated clothing items. Look for clothes that are easy to open. Sleep suits and onesies that have snap buttons that open and close from the front or back are perfect for newborn babies.

  • Buy soft and comfortable clothes. Touch the fabric and feel it close to your skin. Buy clothes that feel great on the skin. Avoid clothes with harsh inner seaming as it can cause rashes on baby’s gentle skin.

  • Buy 4-6 undershirts. Again, undershirts that snap on the side are easier to put on a small baby than those that pull over the head. It is safer to make babies wear undershirts until their umbilical cord falls off.

  • Onesies are a must for newborn babies. These one-piece cotton outfits are extremely comfortable to wear and are available in both short and long sleeves. Most onesies have a snap at the crotch that make nappy changing so quick and easy for the moms.

  • Buy 3-6 sleepers or stretch suits. A lot of paediatrics in Australia recommend that newborn babies must be made to wear sleepers at night and should not be covered with a blanket. Sleepers that feature built-in shoes are warm and cosy and keep the baby protected from chin to toe.

  • Some other items that you would need for your newborn are socks and booties, hats, caps, and bonnets. Make sure that the socks and booties are loose enough for the baby to wiggle his toes and feet. Hats and caps are required to keep your baby warm and protected from the cold weather. Buy 3-4 pairs of socks and 1-2 hats or caps.

  • Do not forget to buy burp clothes. You would need plenty of them while breastfeeding and bottle feeding your baby. Put the burp cloth on your shoulder on your lap to ensure that you do not get dirty if the baby pukes some milk.

  • Though newborn babies do not need grown-up style clothes like pants and jackets and dresses, if you really feel the urge to buy them, just buy one or two pairs of each size. Once the baby is 6 months old, you can buy as many as your heart desires to dress up your little one in a cute and smart manner.

You may use the above checklist for shopping for newborn gifts, especially baby clothing, in Australia.

Hope you find this checklist for newborn clothes Australia useful. Enjoy shopping for your baby!!
