Kicky Pants Bamboo Footie Pajamas

Buying baby clothing is a must for any new parent, but don’t get overwhelmed.   My Baby Pajamas has put together a Top 5 list of items you will need the first few weeks after your baby is born.   During the first few weeks of your new baby’s life your baby doesn’t need a big wardrobe.   There really is only a few top items you will need and you will need multiples of each because babies tend to have a lot of unplanned accidents 🙂

My Baby Pajamas Top 5 List of clothing items every newborn baby should have:

1. Baby pajamas and footie pajamas:  When babies are newborns they sleep a lot.   They can sleep anywhere from 18 – 20/day in their first couple weeks of life.   So if you were sleeping this long, you would want to be comfortable.  You should also do the same for your baby.   Always take the time of year in consideration when buying baby pajamas.   When babies are under one year old, we always recommend footie pajamas because babies do not sleep with blankets.

2.  Bodysuits or Onesies:  These are something you can never have enough of.   Many parents forget to buy them because let’s face it they are not cute and really no fun to buy but you will need them.  Make sure you have plenty on hand and also make sure you have different sizes, 0-3 months will only last a couple of weeks before your baby has outgrown them.

3. Gowns or Sleep sacs:  These are hard to find but you will definitely need them the first couple of weeks of your babies life.   Changing diapers in the middle of the night is a snap in the sleep sacs.  We highly recommend them for the first couple of weeks.

4.   Socks:   Many moms forget to buy socks for their new baby.   Plus, they always seem to get lost in the wash machine so buy plenty 🙂  When you are out running errands or just sitting at home (in the middle of winter or with the A/C blasting) babies feet get cold.   A good test is feel your baby’s feet, if they feel cold or cool to the touch, put some socks or slippers on them.

5.   Well, number 5 isn’t really clothes but we feel it’s very important for all new babies to have and to have plenty of them.  It’s a blanket.   A blanket can serve you many purposes.  Blankets will become your best friend.   Blankets can be used to protect your baby from the sun or weather outside.   You can swaddle your baby in a blanket which helps newborns sleep better.   Blankets can also be put on the floor or rug for some much needed tummy time.   Just remember not to put a blanket in with a baby while they are sleeping unless your baby is swaddled in the blanket.
