With our new SS20 collection launching soon, we thought it would be the perfect time to chat about newborn baby essentials and dressing up your baby basics! Items such as singlet bodysuits, onesies, pants, and bloomers are all absolute must-haves in your Summer newborn essentials wardrobe, but they don't have to be boring!
Basics are a Mamma's dream.
Basics make dressing your little one a breeze. From your baby's first nights at home to playful toddler, basics are a must-have wardrobe essential for any Mumma. Basics are comfy, cozy, and functional for every day, but how can you dress them up? Easy, follow our favourite things to make your basics stand out below, and transition from playing at home to a special day out while your little explorer stays nice and comfortable.
Layer up with complimenting colours
Especially in the cooler months, start with a bodysuit and layer with a cute cardigan, long sleeve tee or knitted jumper. Layers are adorable at any age, and you can strip them back as the day warms up to keep your little one comfortable. Make sure to use colours that compliment each other. We're pretty fond of gorgeous neutral tones, think Rose, Clay, and Stone.
Work your accessories
There is nothing cuter than a little one in an adorable beanie or headband. Their head stays warm & cozy, all while being almost too cute for words. All our accessories are made for 100% GOTS certified organic cotton, so they're incredibly soft, comfortable and look amazing, I'd say that's a win-win. The most important thing in any outfit shouldn't be just fashionable but comfortable for your little one.
Our littlest ones will always need an extra layer in the cooler months regardless, so having a wrap on hand is always a great idea. There is nothing cuter than a baby burrito, all snug and warm in a soft blanket. It's a great idea to source one free from nasties to protect your littlest babe's delicate skin.
Now even though this isn't clothing as such, it's always a great idea to cover up in the sun. Sun protection is one of the most important factors when it comes to protecting your little one from the elements outside, no matter if it's cold or hot outside. It's advised to apply sunscreen 15 to 30 minutes before venturing out.
Keep it simple
At the end of the day, your little one's comfort is the most important thing. Keep clothing unrestrictive, free from harsh chemicals, and with fabrics that will support their delicate skin is the most important thing. Something comfortable in which the kids can have fun.
