Tips for Building a Practical Baby Wardrobe

When it comes to building a practical wardrobe for your baby, there are three main things to consider: functionality, comfort, and safety.

Opt for clothes with wide necks or snaps at the shoulder, buttons, and zippers. This makes it easy to undress your baby during diaper changes or spilling incidents. 

Select items that are made from soft, durable fabrics to avoid irritating your baby's skin, and stretchy fabrics that will fit them as they continue to grow.

Ensure that you have suitable clothing for each season and invest in layering pieces for adapting to varying temperatures. This will prepare you for the ever-changing months and weather conditions. 

8 Wardrobe Essentials for Your Baby

Now that you are ready to get started on your wardrobe, here are a list of must-haves for every new parent and their baby:

1. Bodysuits

Bodysuits are incredibly versatile, serving as a complete outfit in warm weather or a base layer in the winter.

These are really easy to change, and their soft, breathable fabrics provide the ultimate comfort for your baby. Babygrows come in various styles, from long sleeves to short sleeves and plain designs to adorable patterns

2. Sleepsuits and Pyjamas

Sleepsuits and pyjamas are essential for every baby. 

This ensures that your child stays safe and comfortable whilst sleeping the day away. Choose snug-fitting sleepwear to reduce the risk of hazards.

Simple is best when it comes to sleepwear. Avoid clothing with strings, large buttons, or other embellishments that could cause a safety concern.

3. Soft Outerwear

When you’re out and about, you want your baby to look stylish whilst remaining cosy and comfortable.

For this, lightweight jackets, cardigans, and hoodies are popular choices. They provide warmth without being too heavy on your baby. These are versatile and can create many great autumn and winter outfits.

Consider sizing up for outerwear to accommodate space for layers underneath.

4. Comfortable Bottoms

There are many types of bottoms that are beneficial to have in your child's wardrobe. 

For summer, breathable and soft shorts are a must. These can be paired with various types of tops, cardigans, and babygrows for the ultimate summer look.

Joggers and sweatpants will come in use over the colder months. These are ideal for play and relaxation or chilly days out running errands. Our tracksuit sets are an ideal addition to your baby’s wardrobe.

For an all-year-round outfit, leggings provide flexibility, allowing for easy movement and providing a layer of warmth. Our reversible legging and cardigan set is perfect for every baby.

5. Socks and Booties

Baby’s hands and feet should always be kept warm.

That is why we sell a range of high-quality socks and booties to add to your baby's clothing collection. This is something your baby will need every day, so it’s important to invest in a good-quality pair. 

6. Caps and Hats

Caps and hats are essential for every season.

When the sun comes out to play, your baby's sun hat or cap needs to come on. This protects your child's head and ears from sunburn and overheating. 

As the winter months roll in, you’ll need to get the woolly hats and beanies out. Our blue knitted hat is the perfect unisex option for keeping your baby away from the cold.

7. Scratch Mittens

For the first few months, your baby will scratch themselves more times than you can count. 

Scratch mittens prevent injury and keep your baby’s hands warm in the meantime. You could opt for a few sets, investing in some plain mittens and fun designs to go with every outfit. 

Our 5-in-1 set is ideal for getting all the essentials you need at once. This includes mittens, booties, a bib and a hat, which come packed in an adorable storage bag. You can reuse this bag for storing each item securely for trips away.
