Essential Clothing for Young Babies

Sponsored Post by Vertbaudet.

Everything Baby ClothesWhen a mother first announces her pregnancy, she can often be overwhelmed with well-meaning advice, offers of baby clothes, and endless anecdotes and wise words.  For a first time mother it can be daunting to navigate the world of baby clothes amid conflicting advice.

A newborn baby has a fairly empty diary and will mainly be kept warm and indoors for the first few months, bar the occasional trip out.  Comfort is of the essence and there is no need for anything but the most comfortable and comforting of garments for a new and sleepy baby.  It goes without saying that most parents will be doing more laundry than usual when they have a baby so it is also useful to have several spare outfits to hand.  New babies can suffer from reflux, or throw up milk at the most unexpected times.  A baby has no respect for whether they have just been bathed and changed.  Nappy changes are frequent and necessary, as are fresh outfits.

Sleeveless Baby Vest

A new baby will always need one more layer than his or her parent is wearing.  A sleeveless baby vest is ideal for this and can be used as a base under any other outfit.  It is important to keep a baby’s torso warm as that is where the essential organs are and where temperature is regulated.  A baby vest protects this area and is easy to put on.  Over the head, and buttoned at the crotch, a vest makes a baby snug in no time.

Sleepsuits for Babies 

Sleepsuits are also an essential part of a new baby’s wardrobe.  Covering feet and with long sleeves too, these are fastened up to the neck with easy poppers for a quick change.  Tiny legs wriggle in first, then arms, and the baby is warm and snug in no time.  Many parents are recognising that sleepsuits and all-in-ones are not just for bedtime.  Many baby clothes now come in one-piece styles and can be suited to winter or summer.  Most ranges feature easy to fasten poppers, making dressing time short and sweet.  Vertbaudet the online children’s specialist pride themselves in designing clothes that will help the parent have a stress free time when changing their little one.

Baby Hats

Young babies also need hats, especially when going outside.  However, it is strongly advised that hats are not used when a baby is put down to sleep indoors as it can lead to overheating.  This rule does not apply if your baby is sleeping outside, in a pushchair or pram for example.

Booties or Infant Shoes

Booties or soft shoes are also useful for a newborn baby.  A baby’s extremities can get very cold so it is important to protect feet and hands.  Mittens or scratch mitts can serve a dual purpose.  A baby’s fingernails are very fine and can be sharp, leading to accidental scratches on a baby’s face.  Mittens can stop this happening, whilst keeping the baby’s hands warm at the same time.


Cardigans are another invaluable item since temperatures can constantly change.  Taking a baby out on a sunny day can mean a sudden dip in temperature.  Equally, a baby can get too warm and a cardigan can be easily removed or put back on as required.  Layers are ideal pieces when selecting baby clothing.

Money-saving Baby Sets

A new parent could save money by buying a convenient new baby set or bundle.  A capsule or starter set can be ideal until a mother gets to grips with how many more of each item is needed.  Some sets come in a handy bag, which is a useful way of taking a change of baby clothes out and about whilst keeping it separate from bottles or food.  The bag can also be used for dirty laundry that needs to be taken home after that impromptu food- throwing accident.

    Heya! I understand this is sort of off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does building a well-established website like yours take a large amount of work?
    I’m brand new to running a blog but I do write in my journal on a daily basis. I’d
    like to start a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience
    and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.
    Appreciate it!
