Adorable baby coming home outfits for your newborn

Picking your newborn baby's coming home outfit, is such an exciting time and it's fun to wander around shops or scroll through your internet browser in search of the perfect outfit, especially with so many adorable choices. It's entirely your decision what your baby wears, however, there are a few things to consider before you go wild.

Think about the season it’ll be when your baby is born. Is it summer or winter? Primarily as long as your newborn is dressed warm enough and comfortably, he’ll be fine. Even if it’s chilly, you’ll be in the car with heating so there’s no need for gloves or a hat.

Best at a glance:

Go for clothing that is easy to get on and off because newborn babies are used to being in your womb and are generally quite curled up. Also, consider the size you should buy. Generally, a 'newborn' size will be just fine but depending on if your baby is measuring big or small, you might want to have a second smaller or bigger outfit as a backup.

It’s easy to assume that, like you, your baby should be wearing a winter coat in the car when it’s cold. However, the thickness of such a coat can prevent you from tightening the car seat harness close to your baby’s upper body. And in the event of an impact, the harness will not be tight enough to hold your little one back securely. Instead, opt for a baby blanket.

If you decide to go outside in hotter weather, remember to put a sunhat on your gorgeous baby, and cover as much of their body as you can with loose, light clothing.
