It’s the most wonderful time of the year — cuddle season! The temperature outside keeps dropping and you’ve got a precious little newborn babe to snuggle with. Wintertime is one of the best seasons to spend with your babe. 

If you recently gave birth, you’re probably tempted to stay in and cuddle. (We don’t blame you!) But it’s best for you and your babe to get a little fresh air each day.

Making sure your little one doesn’t get cold can seem like a big task. It’s hard enough getting yourself all bundled up, but now you’ve got an extra sensitive little pumpkin to worry about. These newborn baby clothes will keep your little one from catching a chill — inside or out.

Newborn Baby Clothes for Winter

Layer it up! The key to keeping your babe cozy (and yourself from going crazy) is to dress your little one in lots of layers. We all know that winter months mean fluctuating temperatures. It may be freezing outside, but many homes and businesses are broiling this time of year. 

Dressing your babe in a few light layers can prevent a flushed, unhappy, overheated little one. Layer a bodysuit or footie underneath matching pants and a top. Add a sweater and your little bundle of joy will be cool and cozy. We love this Avocado Toast Zipper Footie. The print is to die for and looks adorable on newborn baby boys or girls. A great option for layering is this Apples Playette 3-Piece Outfit.

Newborn Baby Accessories for Cute and Cozy Babes

You’ll want to keep your newborn babe’s head covered this winter. Most of our body heat escapes through our head — and that’s no different for little ones. Stock up on a few different newborn baby hats and you’ll have plenty of stylish options for every outfit. 

To keep your babe warm and extra-precious check out this Newborn Cotton Beanie with Pom Pom. The soft stretchy cotton prevents your babe’s head from catching a draft — while also looking sassy and adorable. For a more neutral option scoop up this Blue Denim Infant Beanie and your newborn will stay toasty while looking fresh to death!

Mittens are another must-have baby accessory. They’ll keep those little fingers from getting too cold. If temperatures drop below freezing be sure to put some mittens on your babe before heading out. Like baby socks, mittens tend to go AWOL. Keep an extra pair or two in your diaper bag and you’ll always have your babe’s hands covered.

Sleepy Time

Keeping your babe cozy at night is important. You’ll want to make sure the room isn’t too hot. And as always, you don’t want any loose blankets in the crib. If your babe is used to swaddling — stick with that method. Swaddle blankets regulate temperature and make your babe comfortable.

A sleep bag or sleep sack can be a great choice in the winter. You won’t have to worry about your little one waking himself and coming loose from his swaddle. Sleep bags are designed to keep your babe snug and comfy all night long. Check out this blog post to learn more about the difference between swaddle blankets and sleep bags.  

Don’t Overdo It

Remember mamas, the most important thing is to not overdo it. Too many clothes or blankets will cause your babe to overheat — which can be just as dangerous as catching a chill. Layer up your little ones. Always have a hat and a few other warm baby accessories on hand. Pay attention to signs your babe is uncomfortable and take action right away. Now it’s time to relax and enjoy snuggle season!

Jewel Tones

Baby clothing trends tend to follow what’s happening in the adult world. Jewel tones will be a big hit for both mamas and babes this fall. We love bold, rich colors. Jewel tones are the best way to incorporate them into your little one’s wardrobe. Look for deep emerald green, bright blue sapphire, rich ruby red and royal purple pieces.

This Bamboo Emerald Footie is perfect for boys and girls. The beautiful green color will flatter all skin tones. Made from buttery-soft bamboo fabric, this footie is ideal for September snuggles. 

From the boy’s latest collection we love this Panda Graphic Tee. Your little panda bear will look too cute in this teal top with a panda face.

Sustainable Fabrics

Sustainable is the wave of the future. Everywhere you look, the focus is on making eco-friendly products more available. This fall we’re seeing more organic cotton, bamboo and modal rayon fabrics than ever before.

The good news is these sustainable options are soft and snuggly too! You don’t have to sacrifice comfort to do your part to save the planet. Natural baby clothes are better for your little one as well. Check out this blog post to learn more about why your babe should be wearing natural clothing. 

Graphic Sets

Graphic onesies and two-piece sets never go out of style. As part of the girl’s latest collection for fall, we’re obsessed with this Leopard Cat Set. You’ve got your jewel tones and some animal print all wrapped up into one adorable outfit. We love that the leggings coordinate, but aren’t a perfect match to the top. So you can swap them out in other outfits too. 

From the boy’s latest collection, check out this Two-Piece Separates set in Aspen. The woodsy green colors are perfect for pumpkin patch outings and apple picking. 

Lots of Layers

 

When you’re moving between season layers are always the best bet. Sleeveless bodysuits work for both warm and cool weather. Add some leggings and a sweater when the morning is cold. Easily remove them in when the afternoon warms up.

Keep a soft and stretchy beanie with you. You can always pop it on your little one’s head if you’re worried about the temperature. Check out these adorable Pom Pom Beanies. They add a flair of sass to any babe’s outfit. Keep some socks and mittens in your diaper bag at all times. 

Animal Print

Grrrr… Let your babe’s inner animal out of its cage! 

We’re living for this trend. We’ve been seeing a lot of animal print in the girl’s latest collection for fall. Normally reserved for grown women, little babes look so cute in a feisty animal print. This matching Two Piece Outfit is appropriately called Wild Child. Let your babe roam and play like a cheetah cub.  

Don’t wait until it’s too late! Shop now and pick up the latest baby clothing trends for fall. 

What’s in Your Hospital Bag? The 5 Mama-To-Be Essentials

Feel like you’ve been pregnant forever? Don’t fret! Your little one’s birth will be here before you know it. One of the best ways to prepare for your babe’s arrival day is to start packing your hospital bag. 

In addition to newborn baby stuff, bring items to make you and your birthing partner comfortable. A copy of your birth plan, snacks, electronic devices & their chargers and reading material should make a sterile hospital feel homier.

Read on for more of the fashionable mama’s hospital must-haves.

Blankets for Babe

A newborn baby item you should never be without is a soft and warm blanket. Newborns can catch a chill very easily, so always keep a blanket or two within reach.

Your hospital will likely provide blankets during your stay. Although, you may prefer to use your own during nursing and cuddle time. You can also use a blanket as a nursing cover. Give yourself a little extra privacy as you get used to breastfeeding.

Throw a cozy blanket over your babe’s car seat for the ride home. Protect your newborn’s sensitive skin from harsh surfaces.

Camera Ready Hospital Accessories

The first of millions of adorable pictures of your little one will be taken at the hospital. Pack a few cute accessories with your newborn baby items. Give your photos an extra special spark of sweetness.

A hospital hat is a necessity. You don’t want your babe to be cold. Grab this soft and sweet hospital hat adorned with a precious butterfly bow. 

This silver bow headband is too cute for words! You’ll get some great photos of your little one snoozing in her very first accessory.

Welcome Home Outfit

You should check your hospital’s baby clothing policy before delivery. Some hospitals allow mamas to bring clothes for their babes to wear in the hospital. Others require babies to wear the clothes provided until your little one is discharged.

You will need a special going home outfit. As this is your babe’s first car ride and first time seeing their home, plan for lots of photos. 

A buttery-soft footie makes a great welcome home outfit any time of the year. Add a hospital hat to keep your babe warm. Bring a jacket if it will be cool outside. You can easily add layers depending on the weather.

Cozy Items for Mama

You’ll likely be spending a few days in the hospital post-delivery. So packing some nice and soft clothes of your own is a game-changer when it comes to comfort. 

An old robe is a great addition to your hospital bag. Throw it on when you’re walking around. You’ll be glad to have an extra layer for warmth and modesty. No one wants to wear a hospital gown longer than necessary. Stash a soft, dark-colored nightgown in your bag. A nightie that buttons down the front will be a lifesaver if you’re breastfeeding. Pack some slippers and plenty of socks for yourself. 

For bonus points, bring your own pillow with a high-quality pillowcase and plushy towels.

Mama’s Favorite Beauty Products

Let’s be real here. Almost no one is going to be wearing a full face of make-up while in labor. But bring some of your favorite skincare and beauty products. This way you can try to make your hospital room feel a little more like a spa.

Pick up travel size bottles of your usual soap, shampoo and conditioner. The hospital provides these, but wouldn’t you rather enjoy your preferred products? Bring along your favorite moisturizers and lip balm — hospitals are notoriously drying to your skin. 

Some calming essential oils like lavender and chamomile can help you relax even though you’re not in your own bed. Every mama knows — get as much sleep as you can before your babe comes home.

Ease some of your pre-birthing anxiety and start packing your hospital bag now!
