What will you be dressing your newborn in? - Page 2

post #21 of 25
I'm with most everybody else here- lots of t-shirts or onsies, cute cloth diaper covers, and a receiving blanket for the a/c. Plan to spend a lot of time outside, since DS#1 will be 4.5, and could LIVE outside if I'd let him. I do a lot of slinging in the , and love the pocket sling. I might make another one out of a bathing suit material like I did for DS (remembering that his ended up too big because of the massive stretch). It was great, too, because I could take him to the water park and just wade into the kiddy pools without worrying about getting the sling wet.

DD was born in June in Georgia two years ago and she was almost always in a onsie. In the house I often put socks and little pants on her because we keep our house cooler. When I took her to the pool, I often dressed her in a VERY light sleeper. It was basically a way to protect her from sun exposure but still keep her cool.

I should also say that she did her BEST napping at the pool. I would nurse her, put her in the stroller in that sleeper and no blanket and she would sleep for hours. The white noise of the water and the kids playing, the breeze in the shade, and the warmth of the temps were like ambien to her.

When we went out I generally put her in a dress (I make most of her dresses with one layer of cotton) and I would bring a blanket or little sweater for AC. She almost always wore socks because her feet got cold easily.

Dd was born in August, and I just kept her in a t-shirt/onesie and diaper most of the time. Or a sundress.

She was tiny, tho, and didn't fit much in the way of newborn clothes . . .

I did try and keep booties on her, tho they fell off a lot, because her little feet did get cold.

I'm going to crochet some little booties.

I think that keeping the legs/arms uncovered should keep baby cool enough for outdoors, and then just bring along a pair of pants, sweater, and receiving blanket for AC cooled rooms.

I'm not trying to hijack this thread, but the mention of socks and booties reminded me of a question I have...

What brand of socks stays on little ones the best? This will be my first baby, so I don't have any experience with this. I've heard a lot of people say that baby socks tend to fall off a lot. Are there any particular brands that you experienced mamas like?

I love the triple roll socks from babyGap, after lots of socks I spent a little more and they stay on and they fit for quite a while. The ones that are almost like towel material inside the sock, I never was able to get them to stay on at all. The babyGap socks come in a lot of colors, more choices are online I think but I usually did white so I always had matches!
