How many clothing pieces should i buy in newborn size?


I'm a first-time mother and i wonder how many pieces of clothing i need in newborn size. Furthermore, she will be born in summer, and i wonder what kind of clothing i need. Do I need long sleeve footie onesies? Or just regular short sleeved ones? What should newborns sleep in during the warm summer months?

6 babygrows (all-in-ones) for both day and night, or four stretch suits and two nightdresses (nighties) for the night – use socks or bootees with the nightie if it's cold

  • 2 cardigans, wool or cotton rather than nylon, and light rather than heavy – several light layers of clothing are best for keeping your baby warm
  • four vests
  • Ashawl or blanket to wrap your baby in
  • A wool or cotton hat, mittens, and socks or bootees for going out if the weather is cold – it's better to choose close-knitted patterns rather than those with a loose knit, so your baby's fingers and toes won't get caught
  • Asun hat for going out if it's hot or the sun is bright
  • As for night time a cotton babygrow will be fine, but if you are going to use sheets and blankets please ensure that they are tucked into the bottom of the cot and are no higher than babies shoulders. Remeember to put baby in the crib with feet to the bottom so there is no risk of sliding under the covers.
