Must-have list of 0-3 months baby clothes

“The only thing kids wear out faster than their clothes is their parents!”

If this quote makes sense, then you definitely have a baby at home. Bringing home a newborn is one of the most challenging things adults will ever do in their lifetimes. Imagine knowing nothing and suddenly being in charge of a living being! Well, all parents get through this successfully and so will you.

Baby clothes are a very essential category of baby products that you will need the minute the child is born. There are so many kinds of baby clothes in the market and not all of them work great for infants.

A good newborn baby cloth has to be:

  • Gentle

  • Hypoallergenic

  • Easy to put on

  • Easy to remove

  • Easy to maintain

  • Functional

  • Long-lasting

Here is a list of 0-3 months baby clothes that satisfy all these criteria.

Onesies

There is nothing more comfortable and more functional than a good onesie. As the name suggests, these are single-pieced clothes that are usually everyday wear or nightwear. Also called a bodysuit, onesies for babies resemble a t-shirt except that the t-shirt extends in the front and back and covers up the crotch. If you want to change the diaper, you can open the crotch buttons, change the diaper, and lock the buttons of the bodysuit again.

Why onesies?

  1. Single pieces of clothes to wash every time

  2. Very easy to change diapers

  3. Easy to store

  4. Cotton onesies are gentle and comfortable on the skin

  5. Does not restrict movement

Rompers

Rompers are very similar to onesies but have a slight difference. Rompers can have legs attached to the top half. You can pick up onesies for home and rompers when you take the little one out for small excursions.

Footed Rompers are rompers will full pants that cover up the feet too. Footed rompers are perfect nightwear. These cover up the feet of the baby prevent the infant from feeling too cold at night.

 When you pick footed rompers, make sure they come in a slightly expandable weaved design. This way, the child will fit into the romper for a longer time.

Why rompers?

  1. A single piece of cloth to wash every time

  2. Can double-up as social-wear

  3. Easy to store and maintain

  4. Cotton rompers are gentle comfortable on the skin

  5. Does not restrict movement

  6. Footed rompers keep the baby cozy

Sleeveless tie-ups for summer

Apart from onesies, also have few soft cotton sleeveless tie-ups if you give birth in summer. These tie-ups make it easy to put on the shirt and remove it without any struggle. In summers such sleeveless tie-ups and a cotton nappy will work as perfect daywear.

When you pick these up, avoid random brands that use artificial dyes in creating colored tie-ups. Either choose organic cotton brands that use safe dyes or opt for plain white tie-ups.

Why cotton sleeveless tie-ups?

  1. Easy to put on and remove

  2. Gets softer with every wash

  3. Allows the baby to be comfortable in harsh summers

Swaddles

Swaddling is an age-old technique that helps create a cozy and protected environment for the baby. Swaddling makes the baby feel like he/she is in the womb. If your little one is struggling to sleep for extended periods or wakes up crying or startled, then swaddling can definitely help.

Here are things to keep in mind about swaddling.

  • Learn the art of swaddling well before you try it out

  • Do not wrap the baby too tight

  • Unswaddle the minute you see the child uncomfortable (A well-swaddled child should relax and be comfortable from the first minute)

  • Do not keep the baby swaddled for extended periods. Use swaddling sparingly

  • Swaddling is recommended only for 0-3 months

 

Pick 100% organic cotton swaddles for your baby. These clothes are gentle and allow healthy airflow even after swaddling. Do not keep away the swaddling cloth after the third month. You can reuse it as a feeding cover, a blanket, or a bedsheet.

Cotton nappies

Oh, what will a new parent do without nappies? There are several reasons why you should be using nappies regularly in the first few months.

  1. Disposable diapers are expensive to be used all 24 hours a day

  2. It is unhealthy to use thick disposable diapers for extended periods

  3. Most babies find it difficult to roll over with thick diapers restricting their movement

  The more refined and functional model is the nappy. Cotton nappies are reusable and allow the genitals breathe.

Expert tip: Make sure you have at least 20-25 pieces of cloth nappies to prevent having to do the laundry every day. Wash these cloth nappies separately in gentle cycles to make them last longer.

Beanie hats, socks, and mittens

Winter babies have to handle extremely low temperatures in the first few months of their life. If you have a winter baby, then beanie hats, socks, and mittens are must-haves in the list of newborn baby clothes. These fabric accessories keep the baby warm.

Please do not pick so-called woolen products that are rough and made of processed, unsafe fabrics. Check handmade real woolen accessories that are soft and comfortable to use. There are a lot of crafters who create absolutely adorable pieces for babies in safe materials. Otherwise, pure cotton ones do just fine!

Bibs

Though these exactly don’t fall in the clothes category, bibs are very useful to protect the carefully chosen clothes of your newborns. Babies spit. This is a universal fact. In the first three months, irrespective of whether you breastfeed or bottle feed, spitting up is normal and the bibs are tied around the neck to prevent spit from staining the clothes. You can consider bibs a protective accessory for the above-mentioned cute baby clothes.

Takeaways

The first three months of your baby’s life are going to be super challenging for you as parents. You can pick up the right clothes and accessories to make things slightly easy. If your baby is comfortable, chances are that he/she sleeps better and takes feeds more happily.

If you are gifting baby clothes for friends and family, please make sure you choose 100% organic cotton clothes. These don’t pose the risk of skin infections and suit babies of the most sensitive of skin. When it comes to 0-3 months baby clothes, comfort and safety are more important than looks and style.
