Clothing for Your LO

Buying cute little clothes before the birth of your baby is so exciting. It’s good to have some basics ready for when they’re born, including:

  • sleepsuits and body suits
  • a couple of pairs of socks
  • a pair or two of scratch mitts
  • a hat
  • a blanket

Once you’ve selected these, you can add in more outfits, cardis and jumpers or a warm pram suit, depending on the season.

Preparing Your Nursery

It is advisable for your baby to sleep in your room for the first six months, so it’s worth considering:

  • a lightweight Moses basket or cotbed, with a new mattress
  • a room thermometer
  • a baby monitor to help to keep an eye on them as they sleep

At around six months, your little one can move into their own room and you may wish to buy:

  • a cot, complete with a waterproof mattress cover, fitted sheets and cellular blankets
  • cosy baby sleeping bags
  • a cute mobile and some blackout blind

Changing Your Newborn

It won’t take you long to become a natural at changing your baby’s nappy, but having everything ready for those first few times will make it a little easier. You’ll need:

  • nappies in the correct size, baby wipes and nappy sacks
  • a changing mat or cot-top changer

It’s also useful to have a nappy bin or disposal system handy to the keep smelly nappies in. You may like to have some nappy cream to hand too in case your baby gets a sore bottom.

Bathing Your Newborn

Newborns usually just need a quick top and tail at first, using cotton wool or a sponge. But it won’t be long before your little one is having a good splash about in the bath with their toys. These can all be useful:

  • a baby bath or a bath support
  • soft baby towels
  • a non-slip bath mat

You can check that the water is the perfect temperature with a bath thermometer. And if your baby is relaxed after bath time, it may be a good time to trim their nails.

Going Out

You’re sure to want to get out and about with your baby. Many prams and pushchairs are suitable from birth and can be complemented with these accessories:

  • a changing bag
  • a parasol
  • a raincover
  • a furry footmuff (for winter months)

A baby sling or carrier is also useful for short trips. For longer journeys in the car, you’ll need an infant car seat and you might want to consider:

  • an ISOFIX base
  • a car child-view mirror
  • sun blinds
