Baby Clothing FAQ

How do I choose the perfect coming home outfit?

A big part of packing your hospital bag is making sure that your little one has a few first outfits to keep them cosy and comfortable. When bringing your little one home from the hospital, you will want a soft first outfit that is delicate against their skin. We recommend keeping it simple and looking for fastenings that make changing easier. Read our coming home outfit buying guide for more tips on how to choose these important clothes.

What features should I look out for in baby clothing?

Look for fabrics that are soft and gentle against your little ones delicate skin. You'll also want to consider other features such as nickel free poppers for easy changing, elasticated waistbands for comfort and built in mitts for safety.

How do I dress my baby for the weather?

Baby's skin is very sensitive to changes in temperature and sunlight, so it's important to dress your baby appropriately for the weather. Rainy, windy weather creates a chill factor. A baby winter outfit should include lots of layers that can easily be removed. When dressing baby in winter, consider long sleeve bodysuits, tights or footed sleepsuits and knitted cardigans or jackets. Don't forget mittens and hats for outdoor adventures. As a general rule of thumb we recommend dressing your little one is one additional layer to what you are wearing. In the warmer months you can help protect your little one from the sun's harmful rays by dressing them appropriately. When dressing baby in summer, consider 100% cotton or jersey outfits that are both breathable and lightweight. Consider short sleeves bodysuits or rompers with crotch poppers for easy changing. If going outside don't forget to cover baby's head with a sunhat.
