Q&A: Best clothes for a newborn?

What kind of clothes will be most comfortable and convenient for my newborn?

Re: What kind of clothes will be most comfortable and convenient for my newborn?

The Bump Expert

We put this question to the experts (aka, our users). Here's what you had to say...

"She wore footed sleepers all day every day for about a month, but it was cold so she needed to be covered head to toe. After about a month we started wearing cotton pants and cute onesies. I bought some longsleeved onesies to go underneath the cute short sleeved onesies because it still isn't consistently warm enough for short sleeves. Any tops with collars end up looking goofy on the newborn -- they don't sit well since the outfit itself doesn't fit well initially. Even once the outfit fits better, the collar still doesn't lie very well." -- Missa1128

"We dress her in sleep and plays (footed sleepers) most days because two piece outfits ride up. The pants ride up to her knees and the bottom of her shirt rides up her back. We try to use ones with zippers when she goes to my mom for the day since the snaps are hard on my moms arthritic hands. I really like Carter's brand -- their cotton is very soft. Much of the first month she was dressed in a sleeping gown around the clock. Since both baby and mommy were home, and she slept most of the time, this was most convenient for diaper changes. Now that it's getting warmer, she sleeps in a onesie and a SwaddleMe blanket only (no gown)." -- Expecting0207

"We usually dress DS for comfort. He wears mainly knit fabrics and the style of outfit he wears depends on the weather. If it's warm I'll dress him in a cute onesie or romper, and if it's cooler, I'll put a pair of knit pants over the onesie or dress him in a sleep and play. He hasn't worn anything heavier up to this point simply because he hasn't needed it! For sleep he usually wears a long-sleeved T-shirt and wearable blanket (a Halo sleep sack or something similar)." -- crk05

"When we are at home, he wears mostly gowns (with mitts)! They are so much easier than buttoning onesies and the other cute outfits. The rest of the time he is either in footed sleepers or onesies." -- ErinAGS04

"When we're at home she wears long sleeve one-pieces and socks. And she's usually swaddled in a SwaddleMe blanket during the day and at night a Miracle Blanket. At night she's in a sleeping gown (for easy diaper changes), and I especially like the ones that velcro instead of go over her head. I really like the details of the Gerber Onesie. They are so cute and I like how they fasten on the side. Cotton materials are best for breathe-ability and function, IMO." -- Rossica+1

"His first few weeks we loved the side snap tees (much easier to get on than onesies since they don't go over the head). They were easy on the umbilical stump and DS's circumcision as well. Carter's brand were the best; they're tagless, all soft cotton, and kept their shape better than other brands. Over the tees we pretty much exclusively used gowns. Again, easy to get on, and very easy for diaper changes since you just have to pull them up instead of fiddling with snaps and things. Now that he's a month we use onesies instead of the tees, because with all his moving around they don't ride up. And now that the bellybutton and circumcision have healed we don't worry about that comfort-wise. We still use gowns alot, but also onesies (on top of the undershirt weight ones) and pants, and outfits if we go out." -- ModernMomma

"My DS is only a week and a half. I *love* the gowns that I can just pull up for a diaper change! I only have three and if he messes two, I'm sure to do wash so I'm not without one!! I've tried onsies, but they are not as easy as the gown. I'm hoping to use them as he gets a little bit bigger. I also love the side snap long sleeved Ts, but I feel that his legs get a bit too cold due to this later winter weather." -- SAB717

"When my daughter was a newborn, we loved the footed sleepers with zippers. Onesies were a pain to get over her head, and t-shirts tended to right up. At night she worn gowns a lot. Again, I liked ones that opened with snaps to avoid going over her head. Now we tend to do onesies and cotton pants, and I'm trying to make sure she wears all the cute outfits people gave her. But to be honest I don't like dresses at this stage... they ride up too much and are just a pain to get in the car seat, etc. I much prefer sleep and play outfits, etc." --madhatter2003

re: Q: Best Baby Clothes?

We think so far that the best value for the $$ are clothes from Old Navy. What type to wear depends a lot on the weather. Our DS was too short for sleepers or pants, so he just wore onesies and we wrapped his legs in a blanket (until he kicked it off). Don't forget hats, all newbies need hats. Even now - DS is 3 months - we don't really "dress" him up. It's just onesies and pants and sleepers at night.

re: Q: Best baby clothes?

My DD was born in March, so we stuck with footed sleepers or onesies with pants. If she was wearing short sleeved, I had a bunch of sweaters and hoodies she could wear. As soon as it got warmer, I got her into rompers, which are awesome, dresses and shorts and t-shirts or onesies. I got so many cute clothes for her from people, so I try to cycle them so she'll get use out of all of them

Our daughter (born in June) looks adorable in dresses, but they're not at all practical! They always end up around her neck. Carter's rompers, with and without feet, are the best for our girl. Good prices, good quality, and so many adorable choices. We like Old Navy, too.

We use the Technical Comfort clothing from Halo. We love that the fabric just knows if the baby needs to be kept warm or cool and her skin stays dry. It is like a wonder fabric!

All my friends seem to love sleep sacks durng the 1st months. They make it easy to change diapers during the night and still keep baby covered.

Footed sleepers always look so uncomfortable to me. If I were baby I would feel so trapped!

It is true that separates ride up or fall down constantly...so dress up baby for outtings but onsies under a one piece sleeper is probably most comfortable for baby and always having onsies on hand for diaper leaks is a great idea.

I had my son in pajamas most of the time. They were easy for me to change, and he looked absolutely adorable. He also wore onesies quite a bit, but more often than not it was both of us in our pajamas, sleeping or watching game shows on TV.

Q&A: Best clothes for a newborn?

My son was in footed sleepers from his birth (sept) through the winter since we were inside most of the time. We had some cotton onsie/pants outfits for going out but mostly the sleepers are the way to go. My Husband would vote for the zipper ones as he never managed to get all the buttons right on the snap ones. Once it got warm our little guy wanted as few clothes on as possible so we stuck to short sleeve onsies.

I have a 2 year old daughter and I love her very much. She likes to wear all kinds of dresses and costumes,like a dog costume or a cat costume. She loves animals very much. Recently I bought her some Baby Bloomers and since then she wears them all day. I can say it was a really great acquisition.

Q&A: Best clothes for a newborn?

As a mother of a 2 year old I have been very frustrated with the common onesie. There is no way to check my son's diaper without undressing him or trying to peek through the leg of the diaper which can leave your finger a little messy. So I designed the Peek-a-poo onesie to solve this problem! This onesie has a unique design which allows the caregiver the ability to peek into the top of the diaper without taking off shoes, pants or unsnapping the onesie. If interested in this onesie check out my site http://igg.me/p/267217?a=1694307
